Hey folks, I'm posting this to gauge interest and see if the community would be interested in buying StP patches or pins/buttons? The patches would probably be $3 (4x4 inches) and pins/buttons would be around $2. I'd probably use the same design as the stickers we have, but I'm thinking about doing a new design for the patches (no idea what yet, gimme ideas).

anyways, what do you think?

well for now we're gonna start small, since i gotta pay for them in bulk out of pocket. i might be open to the idea of people sending me patches to sell in our store though (for a fair commission of course).

word. definitely would buy a stp patch! i'm setting up better screenprinting facilities back in wmass when we return so it'd definitely be an option on my end to print some other ones up in the future !

The immediate response in my mind was "Fuck Yes!" and then I started thinking about where all the patches and pins I've picked up over the years ended up...
Bottom of drawers, totes, boxes...etc...
I never end up putting them on anything. The one time I did was a He-Man pin I found the first week of classes in junior college. Put it on my backpack strap and forgot about it for two years when someone pointed out it wasn't there anymore. lol
But now I'm thinking maybe since I'll be on the road and have time to actually sew things on and all that I might want a patch.
So now I don't know what I want, but if I did decide I want something it'd be a patch and I'd probably pick it up at this year's Jambo.

I would, and I would love to see a patch that was a colored in earth with "squat the planet" positioned outside and around the earth (kinda like in my profile pic) maybe with a squatter symbol in the middle. Or even something like a design with an old hobo on a rocket in space yelling "fuck the world, squat the moon!" with the STP sign. I love to see a variety of different creative and silly things.

i'd like to do a new design different from the stickers, but we'll need someone to come up with the design, cause my drawing skill suck. maybe i'll hit up @awkwardshelby (jambo flyer, stp book) and see if they have time to whip something up...

if it is enough of on the oven up for those communities
do you mean 'on the up and up'? also, we're extremely POC and LGBT+ friendly. it's kinda in our logo, and we even have some threads/articles specifically addressing issues related to those communities, so i'm not sure how we wouldn't qualify.

No, I meant what I said! Oven! ::drinkingbuddy::

I didn't say you don't qualify. I want to see more activity before I give it any personal recommendations. Some more articles and stuff in the library. See some lgtbq and poc staff members. See some real representation other than some threads and an "almost" logo. I'm very strict about what I recommend to others, and I expect them to be the same way with me. I will continue to observe the site. ::pompus::

oh geez. first off, 'oven' doesn't make any sense. second, way to be incredibly pretentious about your oh-so-high standards.

Look, we're honestly trying here, and you're being very insulting to the 1000's of hours of work we've put in here. If it doesn't meet your high standard of excellence in every way you desire then you need to take those issues to the IRL community, not the people facilitating the networking and communication of that community.

If there isn't enough LGBT+/POC representation here in terms of staff (we have LGBT+/POC staff by the way) or content it's because people like yourself are spending too much time complaining about what's wrong with everyone else rather than stepping up and producing the content you want to see here. I can only do so much with what I'm being given.

So if you're going to be such a PC-jerk about it, we really don't need your recommendations. We'll do just fine without you.

Insulting? It's insulting to you that I have "high standards" about what I recommend to people I care about? Ok, then. I'll take your advice - I won't recommend the site to the communities I'm apart of. ::meh::

Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
I'm finally headed out on the road and out of this state as a renowned painter's assistant in a month. I cannot wait for my childhood dream of travelling as a visual artist of some sort to become true. Hats off to you, Mayosky. Bless your fuckin heart man. Ya saved me.
