MAGFest X! PMD Time :(

565 posts in this topic

Hah, yeah. That's why I didn't heavily drink at this MAG. Drink enough to get buzzed then stop.

but you always get drunk...at least until you have to talk in front of ocr.

As promised...

First, I make-a the design-a.

Then, I get a transparency printed at FedEx Kinkos (thanks to Fusion2004 I have lost the game)

Next, photo emulsion is poured to prepare the screen.

The screen is covered and placed into the Yudu fan compartment to dry in the dark. Any light hitting it at this point will cause it to cook the emulsion, so this must be done in the dark.

Next, the transparency is placed under the screen and flooded with light. The emulsion is exposed for a time. after this point I remove the screen and wash it, only the covered letters and design wash off leaving the screen as a stencil ready to be used for screenprinting.

The finished screen is now flooded with paint and pressed down against a shirt.

After pressing the paint through, a shirt is completed.

Many completed shirts!

Send me a PM with shirt color/ink color preferences. I can do up to XL for $15 no shipping in the US, larger will be more as I'll have to order or find a good vendor.

Each screen is not cheap and takes time to create, working full time I'm not doing custom shirt design requests at this time, especially not for a single shirt.

Post MAG post is up on their site, complete with link to feedback form about what you thought went right or wrong about the thing.

I expect everyone here to fill this out and mention that Jamspace once again needs a dedicated section next year that won't be off-limits during concerts.

Add me on Facebook, obviously!

I had no choice at that point! I had to be drunk for the panel! hahaha

YES! I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN. Not everyone sees the concerts. I also noticed MAG X's Jamspace wasn't as special as the previous years. Hope it improves, but it starts sharing our opinions.

My only real gripe was that the main stage was almost at ground level. You couldn't see a darn thing. Stages should be AT LEAST near shoulder-level with people standing on the ground. That's why they hire security to stand in front of a barricade in front of the stage and catch crowd surfers -- obviously less of an issue with MAG, and probably not needed, but the extra stage HEIGHT is a definite MUST just so people will be able to see the band. Major gripe. *salutes*

Indeed. I wasn't able to fulfill my dream of jamming with people in the jam space this year. I so miss playing with other musicians. :(

According to the closing ceremonies, they are moving the main stage to the Potomac Ballroom next year, which has a HUGE built-in stage and is about 20,000 sq. ft. larger than the room the concerts were in this year, so that should take care of the problem for most of the shows.

Did anyone get any audio / video footage of Battlecake's set on the second stage? I'm putting together a special for my radio show next week with live recordings of pretty much every band that performed at MAGFest this year, and these guys are one of the very few I don't have anything for.

we had some friends record us with one of our phones... but nothing is being done with it yet.

other than that i don't know if anyone else took video of us.

i'll talk to the guy with the video to see if we can get that moving

That'd be awesome, not only for the radio show, but because I really want to see it. A bunch of people I talked to after said that you guys were one of the best bands at MAGFest this year... I'm kicking myself for missing your set altogether.
