"Episodes"

Hello futurelings (as well as the unintentional audience of contemporaries)!

If you’re here, you likely already know that we’ve been launching two shirts each month celebrating Omnibus, an auditory catalogue of informational oddities, compiled so as not to be entirely lost in one of the many potential apocalypses looming on the horizon.

It is the project of two men: Jeopardy! champion, interim Jeopardy! host, author, and Grammy-nominated spoken word artist, Ken Jennings; along with musician, writer, Long Winters frontman, and controversial Star Wars Tweeter/ruiner, John Roderick.

Previously, we’ve offered shirts celebrating the project more generally. Now, though, we’re trying something new: designs concerning specific entries. Namely, Entry 749.2S1114 on Mail Trucks (one of the most popular entries, sometimes referred to as “episode 87”) and Entry 328.DE0203 on The De Havilland Beaver (sometimes referred to as “episode 246”).

Which makes you wonder: what will the future of our Omnibus designs hold? Perhaps we’ll make a shirt commemorating a memorable exchange from Entry 805.GN1032. Or perhaps we’ll make a shirt that references a single hilarious line in Entry 1024.GN2917.

Or what about a shirt about the way John Roderick delivers a specific word? Or a shirt about a pregnant pause left by Ken Jennings? Maybe a shirt about a sharp (but not dramatically sharp) inhalation of air, just barely picked up by one of the hosts’ microphones? Or one of the many notable chair squeaks, as documented by internet weirdos?

Okay, we probably won’t do any of those things. But we will keep making Omnibus shirts, that’s for sure. (Unless, of course, there’s that great cataclysm.)

Omnibus Tees 3 by Ken Jennings & John Roderick

“We are Ken Jennings & John Roderick. We speak to you from our present which we can only assume is your distant past the turbulent time that was the early 21st century. Fearing the great cataclysm that will surely befall our civilization we began this monumental reference of strange and obscure human knowledge these recordings represent our attempt to compile and preserve wonders and esoterica that would otherwise be lost so whether you’re listening from an advanced civilization or have just reinvented the technology to decrypt our transmissions. This is our legacy to you. This is our time capsule. This is Omnibus.”
