Front: "Friends help friends use Linux..."

Back: "...or not."


Story: People had been asking for a more relaxed cut for the "Friend's help friends use Linux" shirt, but we wanted to do something a little different. We went to the Berkeley skate bowl to do a photo shoot. The skater on the front is a kernel-hacker-wanna-be Jake Malmrose who grew up in Santa Monica in the heart of where the Lords of Dogtown invented skateboards (surf board + rollerskates = skateboard). While doing the photos, other skaters noticed the big camera and started showing off. An epic wipe-out by one of the show-off skaters is on the back of the shirt.


Jake joked that the dude's wipeout was the skater's version of a blue screen and thus this shirt was born.
