Facebook and Twitter have betrayed us. I'm not around so much anymore. I don't like working with unpatriotic Russian sympathizers that enjoy undermining our free elections... the very fabric of our freedom.
Salamander logo tees, wear and gear is now available in the logo store.
There is a large flame version that is extremely rarely seen in web media, and a small flame version which is used a great deal throughout the web.
There are more than Tees, too. There are sweatshirts, pillows, mugs, bags, even notebooks....
The large flame logo can be found at: https://w3n.us/salamanderTee
And the smaller flamed logo can be found at: https://w3n.us/salamanderT
You don't have to buy anything, though it would be cool if you checked them out and tell me what you think. These business logos of mine are priced as low as I can get them, I guarantee that I don't make a full dollar on any of them. I figure if you are going to support my business by wearing my logo, the promotion is well good enough.
It's the other things I have marked up (sayings, quotes, illustrations, holiday cartoon stuff).
Salamander logo Tees, wear & gear are now available in my logo.threadless.com artist's shop.
If you like us, like the logo, I won't even be making a buck off each shirt/mug/iPhone-case/(etc)...
It's more of a cool thing to see the support, so I make the wear & gear with my logos as close to cost as I dare.
RACISM IS COWARDICE
I find this ignorance repulsive and disgusting. But this hate doesn't come from ignorance alone, it comes from selfish fear. This self-doubt in a man's own ability to learn to get along with anyone different only reveals stupidity in a world that isn't simply global, not just universal, but is a mere pin point in the larger multiverse.
Parallel computing now proves the existence of multiple universes. The idea that we are the only intelligent life that com...prises the center of this universe on the only life giving planet in the depths and vastness of a space filled with billions of galaxies, each holding billions of stars, makes extraterrestrial life a numeric certainty. The space between the stars and galaxies merely makes finding other intelligent life extremely challenging. Especially if they are an elder, more advanced race of creatures that doesn't want to be found (the way we broadcast our signals into space with abandon could be seen as a security issue by any smart race).
The gist here is that Trump has given the white supremacists, neo nazis, fascists and hate mongers a voice. I won't link to it, but I just saw some angry old white codger calling for others (not himself, it seems) to shoot black women and children in the back, in the street. An unofficial Trump advisor is now predicting "civil war" if Trump is impeached.
This is not sanity. It is not leadership. It is gutless, needless hate propaganda perpetuated by our very own president. He is ill. He will try to stop the Mueller investigation by defunding (bankrupting) the government, something he has great expertise in.
There is only one way to stand against all this insanity, the terrorism, and threats of violence, with art. So as a graphic artist, I have put together my first anti-Trump protest campaign...
RACISM IS COWARDICE
One word of caution, I would not really recommend wearing these Tees and hoodies to KKK rallies and such. I do not intend to put anyone's life at risk. But we all have to make a statement and stand for something sometime. I leave it to you when it is appropriate.
I say we impeach, now. it is already out of hand. But that is a different matter. Hate has no place in America. It is the land of the free and home of the brave, not the land of the oppressed and the home of cowards.
RACISM IS COWARDICE
Facebook has gotten way too aggressive with requiring posts. I just posted 16 hours ago and was instructed to post to this page again. They need to sort out priorities. If I am a marketer and not actively marketing on the Facebook platform, it is because I have a better thing going on.
But I am extremely tired of and disappointed with the web spam of annoying Facebook users with ad promos so badly that it interferes with doing our personal business.
I do not see Facebook... as a business to business platform, and in fact, I not only see but experience Facebook interfering in my daily personal life so much that I do not pursue putting up profiles for many other of my personal and business brands.
It's now getting to the point that I regret the decision to portray a few of my brands on Facebook because of the constant web spam and annoyances and strict requirements for keeping a brand active.
I am very busy as a domain host, brand speculator and developer, logo and graphics designer, a web developer and online marketer. Slapping a post into a timeline that is not well thought-out or otherwise unimaginative and quite possibly unnecessary just keeps the cycle of useless web spam going.
Furthermore, time is robbed from my day on a project with creative intent and usefulness. The world is not a digital spam garden, it is full of life that needs to be enriched, not simply told crap and spammed with advertising messages constantly.
Because of this requirement to spam we see less truth and creativity in advertising, as well. Advertising itself has become spam, unless it employs creative marketing, and that is not always handy, real marketing needs to be conceived, developed, explored and then it can ride the advertising engine.
But advertising for the sake of advertising is just spam.
@Facebook, PLEASE LEAVE ME OUT OF YOUR WEB SPAM AGENDA. I come back to Facebook to explore personal relationships, not to spam them, not add friends blindly. Every person I follow has interested me in some way.
I build networks of contacts in LinkedIn and Twitter. On Facebook, I expect to harbor, nurture and grow a personal contact experience, not mine for data. THAT is the experience you should be concerned with, not trying to redfine yourself so that you are always relevant.
Need the spam? I posted 16 hours ago that the website, https://salamander.us/, is also on Twitter as @Salamander_US https://twitter.com/Salamander_US and I may well have done it before to avoid the page being unpublished.
Take a long hard look at yourself from an outsider's view. We intend to ENJOY our experiences at Facebook despite your abuse of the user base. Power corrupts absolutely, and you are absolutely corrupting this user base into a crappy user experience.
Please wake up, @Facebook. This is hard to miss and you are missing on every swing.
I've got a Twitter profile, now: @Salamander_US
I am often asked if I will take a credit card payment on my web design services. I get asked so much that I think I should document that I do not take credit card payments.
Fortunately, I do take PayPal payments, and you can use PayPal to pay via credit card.
Taking credit card payments would at least double the cost of designing websites because of the nature of the web design business. I do accept credit cards in payments for domain registration, web hosting, SSL encrypti...
