268 on a T-shirt


Recommended Posts

For those of you interested in a T-shirt, specifically the ones with "268" on them, I thought I put together a list of those numbers from the episode, "The Curse of Frank Black" just in case you missed something.  And i case I missed something, please add it.  Thanks.

268


the 268 Club logo on the matchbook

the price of the candle

the note to Frank that Jordan's trick or treating is 6 to 8

two football players outfits, 26 & 8 (in small towns they don't play football and have trick or treat on the same night)

268 shows up on the house that Jordan says "feels bad, and that there are ghost in it"

radio goes to 826 and it begins to play oldies

Car engine stalls at 260008

Watch said 8:26

ACTS keeps popping up, on the security sign, in the book that was on the floor and mail, (Association of Craftsmen, Technicians and Specialists) ~ Academic Community of Teachers & Students)

sport scores on TV (2-6, 8-2, 6-2, 6-8)

The CD player turns on and starts to play the same 1950s music that Frank heard in the car. (same station as before) There is no cd in the player...  (well not exactly, it says 26:08.  Why 50s?  In the 50s was when Frank first got...his gift.

sees the A.C.T.S. on the back of the security jacket

Licence plate ACTS 268

2:68 on clock

Acts chapter 26 vs 8, "Why should it be thought incredible by you that God raises the dead?"  Clock switches from 2:08 to 2:68

I'm very, like super very, interested. I like the idea of wearing a t-shirt with 268 in those jersey style numbers the football players have on their backs. To most people it would look like any other sports jersey but we'd know. Kinda like an in-joke. Man, I wish the day would come when I pass another prime example of a human being flaunting Millennium gear.

Yes, I agree that it's awesome to have our own "in-joke."  I too hope to some day see another fan "flaunting Millennium gear.

I love how the writers connected Acts 26:8 to the show.  It may have very well been their starting point.

Love that idea.  I still want a shirt with the MLM Oroborus on it.

A long time ago we were trying to start a MLM TV but it never was completed.

Here's a few of my favorites that I saved on my computer that I would love to have on a shirt.  The TV logo, the Oroborus & the big "X," Captain Estrada's MLM Eclipse, and Frank with his quotes and him with and without MLM on it.

Love the eclipse one. Millennium is almost an infinite source of tee-worthy quotes and images, the possibilities are endless.

Totally agree about the possibilities.  It's like very episode had it's own symbol of some kind.  Wow, that would be an interesting thread, to list all the episodes and come up with a symbol for each one.  Like 268 being the symbol for "The Curse of Frank Black," and a white paper dove for, "Paper Dove."  Some will be the title, like paper dove, others will be the meaning of the title, like Nesting Dolls for "Matryoshka." or something that was predominate in the episode, like the 268.  To me this would be fun.  Might have the time to start it today, but not sure.  Need to actually ask The Old Man how we can set it up so people can add to the list rather than having to copy and paste it to their post, or make their own list.  That would be too much reading.

Earth calling Alpha Old Man, please read this post.

If we complete that list I'm getting it inked.

      I have seriously thought a few times about asking the rather awesome Barry @ENGINECOMICS to design some T-shirts for TIWWA or the website, like he did way back when for the Back To Frank Black campaign. You may remember them, we used to promote them here way back when, they were so good. In fact I wish I'd had some funds to buy some at the time when I was still working. Not only did Barry absolutely nail the t-shirt designs, they were cleverly designed so that you'd immediately get the MM reference but so as not to fall foul of Fox's copyright lawyers. Reminds me of the days way back, when they used to go around taking whole fan sites down.

      Hi all,

      Heres the first batch of ideas for non-copyright infringing tshirts to help promote the B2FB campaign. It was suggested to post this on the main board for general feedback and suggestions.

      A look into my wardrobe would reveal I'm a big fan of Last Exit To Nowheres line of tshirts inspired by places, companies and products featured in many movies. As far as i know they have yet to be sued for infringement, and they've been going for a while now. I was inspired to take the same approach to MM. I have a few other ideas but they'll need more time to draw out, as they're more complicated.



      I'll start with my least favourite. Since doing this I've had another idea for a b2fb logo, or at least symbolic image, for use on tshirts. But anyway.



      More subtle, this is referencing DEAD LETTERS.



      Referencing LAMENTATIONS, Fabricants' fake hospital tag sporting Frank's home telephone number. "Anephric" refers to missing kidneys.



      From everyones favourite ODESSA front company and recurring Morgan and Wong evil corporation, from ROOSTERS. Incidently this is the exact same font as used in the show.



      The twin tailed comet that ushered in the millennium and watcher to the events of season 2. Its been suggested to rename this after the comet in the show, Vansen-West, which is named after two characters from SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND.



      From SOMEHOW, SATAN GOT BEHIND ME, the favourite coffee shop for minor demons.



      Now the Centre for Selfosophy, once an esteemed institution. Kinda. Glimpsed in JOSE CHUNG'S 'DOOMSDAY DEFENSE'.

      More to come.
