Day 123: Psyched to Die, pick your king.
I bought this shirt at Insubordination Fest in Baltimore, MD in June of 2009! It was literally two days after Michael Jackson died. (so June 27th?) Basically Psyched to Die are geniuses and thought up this brilliant Poison Idea parody shirt fast enough to print them and bring them to Baltimore the next day. So rad. The original poison idea shirt has Elvis instead of Michael Jackson. That other guy is supposed to be Jesus, in case you didn’t know.
I remember that Frump saved me one of these and when I saw him, he gave me a really big hug and picked me up and carried me around, I think it was during Full of Fancy, or maybe right after. All of my memories of any Fest are kind of just a big jumble of colors and moments because I am way too overstimulated to remember things precisely.
The morning after I found out Michael Jackson died I went to the Golden West for breakfast and was handed a menu made out of an LP jacket from Thriller. It was pretty cool how all of that lined up. I really like wearing this shirt in situations where someone might get offended.
