Help Mike complete his Barsuk collection

Postby Mike McCusker » Wed Dec 29, 2010 7:03 am

OK, this is a long (winters) shot. But I'm running out of options...

I'm trying to complete my collection of absolutely everything Barsuk has ever released. I have in excess of 600 items - all releases on all formats, posters, badges, promos, cards, soda, mugs, bags. licenced items from around the world and tee shirts.

Most difficult is trying to get tee shirts that are out of print. I eBay daily for the last 7 or 8 years and even resorted to rooting around Barsuk HQ (thanks again guys). But some things I just can't find.

Two of these are the first two Long Winters tees Barsuk put out, called "Don't Yell At Me" (lw01) Image

and "Nietzsche" (lw02)

Image

Any ideas? Perhaps you know a former fan who has fallen foul of John's razor sharp wit? A disgruntled former employee/band member/formally thin fan who ate all the pies and can no longer squeeze into that girlie YS ?

Any size will do, but a L or XL preferred.

Of course I will pay any ransom within reason and shipping.

Aaah damn. I once had the Nietzsche shirt, but I think I gave it to someone because it actually way an L or even XL-size. Sorry :(
EDIT: Aah yes, I gave that one to Liesbeth.

yes, I have Moni's Nietsche shirt, which is also too large for me, but is hanging from my wall as a medieval wall carpet. Well, not quite, but it's still hanging.
It might be that John still has some lying around, have you asked? A few years ago he got me a Snowblower tee that I didn't think would be available at all anymore. Actually, that's already 4 years ago, how time flies.

My snowblower tee is faded to all holy hell. I've worn it at least twice a month for six and a half years now (time does fly!). Even though it's design is all but invisible, it still is in the regular rotation.

But perhaps Rich is still willing to part with the Don't yell at me shirt?

I don't think Rich was seriously offering that shirt to me, he just wants me to fulfill my promise that I would visit him in New York sometime. Besides, I got dibs! ;) I have a really old, really faded "Don't Yell at Me" t-shirt, but it has a blue stain on it from when it went through the wash with a pen. It is my all-time favorite TLW shirt, and I've been looking for another one for a while now too...

That shirt was three inside jokes in one! I can't believe we ever sold a single one, let alone that it would be in demand almost nine years later. "Don't Yell at Me". Hilarious. The last one I saw was at least five years ago. Sorry. And I completely forgot we even made a Nietzsche shirt. Haven't seen one in years.

I believe I had that, put it on my backpack, and it fell off literally within two or three days. I was Not Impressed.
