Get Your Free Obama Sticker!

Shepard and Moveon.org have teamed up to mark this moment in American history.

These commemorative stickers mark Barack Obama’s historic victory and were designed by groundbreaking artist Shepard Fairey—the same artist who designed the world-famous, iconic “Hope” poster for Obama.

You can get one sticker for free. For a $3+ donation, we’ll send you 5 stickers. For a $20+ donation, we’ll send 50 stickers. Stickers are 4.5″ x 6″ (about the size of a postcard) and may take 5-7 weeks to arrive.

victory!

Last night was an amazing night. Today is an amazing day. Let’s stay politically engaged and make tomorrow even better. Here are some photos from last night’s AWESOME Obama party in LA. I wheat pasted, Z-Trip DJed, I DJed, Obama won, and my close friends were there to share it. I will be interviewed on CBS News tonight if you are not sick of me already(I’m sick of me). I also made a poster for MoveOn.org that will be out shortly. I think it sums up the unified and cumulative effort that made Obama president. Let’s celebrate today and get to work tomorrow. I’m leaving work to go record shopping.

Shepard’s print is an Edition of 450 and MFG’s print is an edition of 400, both are $45 each.

STEP UP AND VOTE!

Washington, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, North Carolina and FLORIDA… its your time!

PLEASE… for the sake of your own future and the future of the country vote today if you have not already.George Bush won by 537 votes in 2000 in Florida. Look at it this way: if we don’t play a part in shaping the future, we really have no right to complain if it doesn’t turn out to our liking. Voting is only one component of the above principle, but the vote of a skate-punk counts the same as a CEO. Not only is voting is the rare example of genuine equality in this country, but voting is an important tool to push for the legislation of equality and accountability. I know I’ve been relentless about this election, but thanks for listening, and hopefully caring and voting.

As we start looking toward the weekend… We are days away from the most important political event young people will most likely witness in their lifetime.  And as the world changes, our country, too, is faced with the decision to move forward or stay in the past.   For the next couple of days you will be continuously exposed to links, videos, and literature (on OBEYGIANT.com) that will help you decide which road our country should travel.  We at OBEY believe in change and we hope you do to….
