Mediocritee warehouse is running with essential staff to help customers stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Musical Destinations!

This week we have two designs that comment upon the delightful nature of music. In one, a vinyl record expands outward, encompassing all that is around it. In another, a stereo system begins to take on the appearance of a skyline.

Both make a simple point: great music can transport us to another place, somewhere far beyond our bedroom or living room, a magical place populated only by sound.

Everyone, whether consciously or not, knows and has experienced this. But what few realize is that these strange other “places” we go while listening to great music? They have names! Such as:

  • Led Zeplindianapolis;
  • Philadelphiona Apple;
  • Social Distortland (Oregon);
  • The Minneapolice;
  • Cincinnat King Cole;
  • Mac DeSanMarcos;
  • Sani DiFransico;
  • The Strokeslahoma City;
  • Washington Deee-Lite;
  • Social Distortland (Maine);
  • The Goo-Goo Dallas;
  • and Boston!

Of course, these are just a few. Really, the number of potential destinations is endless. So get a shirt–or even better, get two!–and celebrate this ability that music has to take us where we’ve never been before!

Sounds Familiar by Jasneko

We’re told that these designs are from frequent Mediocritee contributor Jasneko. You know who we mean: the artist who’s been designing shirts since 2009, selling them mostly on Shirt.Woot, and who somewhat recently launched a Society 6 Store. The same one who designs educational games for kids, and who is now working on writing and illustrating children’s books. And yet, we also find it hard to believe that Jasneko is behind these. Because if she were, wouldn’t at least one of them feature a cute face?

Anyway, you can find more about Jasneko and her work on her website, her Facebook page, or by following her on Instagram.
