Smokey-Bear

a starlit sky
off the well traveled trail,
and if a star falls in the woods
and burns everything to the fucking ground
does Smokey the Bear make a sound?

or is he sitting against the redwood bark,
lighting his Camel,
savoring the taste of American Industry,
American History,
while the hundred year trees
spread seedlings in the blaze?

there was a thunderstorm tonight
‘bout a minute wide,
but you have to wonder
for all the poets that’ve chimed
what the stars throw back,
if its vulgar,
in their twinkling tones?

and really, a minute is so very long
sixty seconds even,
sixty complete thoughts
about the way the cold creeps up
has its way
and never, ever stays.

a starlit sky
off the well traveled trail,
can we meet up there intemperatetouch
dressed in dreams
dragging the ones that no longer fit
and chant the ones we hold secret
by the rejuvenating firelight
of someone’s earth-crashed wish?

Forest Fire” by HybridVigour

Here’s one forest fire that we hope Smokey Bear does approve of, as no trees or wildlife were harmed in the making of this design. We asked HybridVigour what his favorite part of this tee was, and this is what he had to say:

“I think my favourite thing about this design is it’s quietness. It doesn’t scream for attention, but (I hope) the concept still comes through loud and clear.”

Check out the rest of this week’s new tees!

Happy Birthday, Smokey Bear!

A trio of vintage Fire Prevention PSAs on his 70th Birthday:

Smokey Bear Fire Prevention Public Service Announcements (PSA), 1971 - 1985

From the series: Forest Service Public Information Films and Public Service Announcements, 1945 - 1995

Everyone’s favorite ursine fire prevention advocate, Smokey Bear, made his debut appearance in this Forest Service poster on August 9, 1944.

Did you know?  Just like his colleague Woodsy Owl, Smokey has a Public Law (P.L. 82-359) protecting him. Congress passed the law in 1952 to prevent Smokey from being used to sell commercial products. It was believed that this would dilute Smokey’s forest fire prevention message. Their strategy seems to have worked. Wildfire prevention is one of the most successful campaigns that the Ad Council has ever produced.

Grass Princess Finn and Fire King uh… Flame princess

He’s surprised the Flame Shield kept King Flame Princess from burning his hand

I wish she had an actual first name tbh, like how PB’s first name is Bonnibel…

Also realized I forgot to unhide the layers with Finn’s spirit arm but decided to just leave it like that.

Let people ship whoever the hell they want to ship, that is their preference, and you should respect that. we all should just be fangirling together. So lets stop arguing over what pairing is or isn’t cannon, because the less we argue, the more time we have for making fan fiction!  
also I don’t know the sources of the art, but if you do feel free to tag them.
