$10 Shirt.Woot: ROK-101

4 pennies earned

This retro music themed T-shirt is the brainchild of the artist Jason Bergsieker. I'm finding myself at a lack of something intelligent to say. So I apologize to all of the music scholars and devotees out there, for my glaring ignorance. It appears to be some kind of music-playing device. The shirt features that device, and then a magnified portion of a set of dials. Where the title comes from: ROK, 101. If anyone can tell me the significance of this design, I would really appreciate it.

C'mon Kirsten, it's Rock 'n Roll 101 -- time for you to get skooled...

You've gotta turn down the suck and turn up the good --although I would definitely have appreciated it if it said something like "rock" or "jam" or "win"-- to pump out the jams!

To further continue -- this is a guitar amp, which amplifies the vibrations of the strings to create the loud sounds we all know and love.

Specifically modeled after (traced from) this Fender amp:

It's also a common concert jeer, between songs of an awful band, to yell "TURN DOWN THE SUCK!!!" :)

I guess I just go to good shows, because I've never heard anyone yell "turn down the suck!"

I like the Fubar name change! Sure there's a ton of voices and effects that can be changed, but I wish I had knobs that I could turn to enhance my keyboard skills.
