Last month I announced a t-shirt contest. I asked MaxFunsters to create designs for a special shirt which will be produced only for this pledge drive period. A limited-edition gem that expressed the true spirit of Maximum Fun.
Well I asked, and you responded. We got almost 50 amazing designs. Your votes narrowed them down to five finalists, each of whom will get an iTunes gift card for their contribution.
Our celebrity judges are currently judging, and we'll announce the winner at the end of the week.
Your celebs are:
Rob Baedeker is a writer, professor and member of a comedy group you may have heard of: Kasper Hauser. He also has a way cool little baby.
Maria Bamford is a standup comic who has performed headlining shows around the country and toured extensively with the Comedians of Comedy. She's also super stylish.
Judith Thorn is a college professor and accomplished academic. She used to make clothes for Miles Davis, but he was kind of a dick. Also, she is my mom.
Jonathan Coulton is an accomplished singer-songwriter and internet sensation. His hit song "First of May" recently shifted focus on that holiday from solidarity among the world's workers to solidarity among those who enjoy outdoor fucking. He also gave me the idea for this whole thing.
Brandon Bird is an artist whose work plays with pop cultural themes. He himself has designed t-shirts, one of which I once saw at Nordstrom's. Also, he made Brave Cone Dog.
