1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I came across some newer shirts from Japanese brand Eternal that I'm really fond of. I stay away from overly Asian-influenced clothing, but from this company (and with this shirt), it's a bit of a different story.

    I've totally contemplated buying those. They're indigo-dyed.

    I also love Studio D'artisan's shirts.. can't go wrong with shirts w/ pigs on them.

    Indigo-dyed shirts are pretty common. I dabbled in it a few months ago with my buddy and I plan to mess around with it again this summer. Hopefully I'll like come up with something I like this time. For stuff available on NA, I know that 5EP makes indigo-dyed shirts, and I'm pretty sure 45rpm does too. I've seen quite a few more that I just don't remember right now.

    Where does one buy indigo? Does it come as a powder, etc etc?

    You buy it in little clay-like bricks (at least natural indigo, which is what we messed around with before). The hard part is getting the indigo to oxidize correctly. It requires a vat, which is a fun project in itself. I'm gonna try and build a vat entirely by hand.

    And I'm not entirely sure if I'm planning to make a selling opportunity or anything out of it. I've always done a bad job on the business end.
