  • Sign My Shoe!

    Another creative idea from the collective minds on the GDF!

    Last week I started drawing on my pair of Chucks, or getting other to draw on them, and the offer was made to send them to other members for graffiti. What a concept!!! This thread is to get people on board, and see who wants to play. All you need is a pair of shoes that you want signed (I suggest a pair of Chuck Taylors, as the canvas is a great...uh....canvas).

    Now we need to figure out the best way to know who to mail to next. I'm thinking if after signing a shoe, and there's room for more, post a message as to who's shoe you've got and see who wants it next. Once it's full, the last person to fill it can mail it back to the original owner. Any better suggestions?

    Understand, that if you're choosing to play, you'll have to pay shipping charges on the shoe that you're sending. Costs should be fairly low tho. You also run the risk of loosing a shoe, but just think of what your end result could be! A 1 of a kind GDF original shoe!

    AMAZING!

    I'm open to suggestions to make this more effective, so please, if you've got a better idea, let us know! This could be a great project, and a lot of fun!

    Sounds like a good plan, Bladez. After we see how many people we get, we can go from there!

            <LOL!>

            It turned out that someone had sold something to someone else and took a bit to long on shipping it out. So the buyer had PM'd the seller and complained and said "it's not like I am asking you to make a turkey sammich and send it!" So the seller made a turkey sammich and sent it out a week before he sent the actual item. Now the dumb sammich gets passed all around our community.

                If you figure out the logistics, I'll doodle on a shoe and send it back out!

                                It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

                                That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

                                Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

                                ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
                                I think.
