This is my idea for an addition to the Pizza John clothing line. A hoodie/jacket/long sleeve shirt with this design. I would love if DFTBA records picked this idea up but if they don’t (because it has 3 colors or that jackets are expensive to produce) then I will find some way to make it a buy-able thing. I don’t want money, I just want this as a thing to exist. Reblog if you would. It would be so jokes if the peeps at DFTBA Records saw this.

Best Wishes,

A Louisiana Nerdfighter

EDIT: To those that want this as a shirt:

Lyrics:

Yes it’s true that I once went through life
As the guy who always had to rhyme life with strife
Yes I’ve been burned and I’ve been spurned
And through it all, yes I have learned
That love is not about whether you get stabbed
But how slow the knife gets turned


But my friends, I’ve found an animal who doesn’t feel this pain
And my life is so much better now that I can feel the same

Because you can’t hate the night
If you’ve lived your whole life without light
And you can’t hate the dish
If you’ve only ever eaten fish
And you can’t feel alone if it’s all you’ve ever known


Yeah the deep sea Anglerfish has no reason to be happy
But it has no frikkin idea what else to be


The deep sea dwelling Anglerfish never has to find a mate
They are always there together when it’s time to procreate
See, one dark night a young male bites the female on her side
And then slowly he becomes a sperm producing parasite


And if we can say he lives at all, he lives until she dies
And until that day, he literally never leaves her side

Yeah you can’t hate the night
If you’ve lived your whole life without light
And you can’t hate the dish
If you’ve only ever eaten fish
And you can’t feel alone if it’s all you’ve ever known

Yeah, the deep sea Anglerfish has no reason to be happy
But it has no frikkin idea what else to be

For years this rule has kept me out of hopeless despair
You simply do not feel what is always there
I ask my brain to entertain that pain is the same
That if I feel it all the time, can you really call it pain?

I don’t have any friends, and I don’t have any hair
But neither does the Anglerfish, and she doesn’t care

Because you can’t hate the night
If you’ve lived your whole life without light
And you can’t hate the dish
If you’ve only ever eaten fish
And you can’t feel alone if it’s all you’ve ever known


Yeah, the deep sea Anglerfish has no reason to be happy
But she has no frikkin idea what else to be

Fun Fact: When I was in elementary school I was obsessed with anglerfish, you could ask me anything about them and I’d know.

New Poster and New Sugar Glider!

It’s been a great week! We got our new poster and found the perfect spot to hang it. You can get your own Animal Wonders Poster at dftba.com.

We have a new animal ambassador! He is not at all fond of Jessi, but Gizmo the sugar glider thinks he’s pretty alright.

Scishow Kids is coming soon!

For those who want a Frozen Pizza John in their closet/torso/wall T-shirts and posters are available though Redbubble. I originally wanted this primarily as a hoodie design but the hoodies through Redbubble aren’t the cheapest. They are still available though. I tried to make this as cheap as possible, meaning I am making no money from this. I really don’t care. I don’t want your money, I just want to provide the world with this awesome thing. Get it now at :http://www.redbubble.com/people/sparkypchu/works/10803143-frozen-pizza-john?p=t-shirt 

Thanks,

P.S. If you buy a shirt. Post a picture under the tag “Frozen Pizza John” It would make my day. :D

P.P.S. Sorry Alan if I’m abusing the DFTBA Records tag. I just want to get this to everyone who saw it the first time and may have wanted it. I hope you understand. Thanks for reblogging the original design. I appreciate it. :D

DFTBA.com is currently down due to a DDoS attack on the server. This is becoming more of a problem as we sign more and more larger personalities because with their huge communities, larger artists also attract more “haters”. What these attackers might not consider though is that DFTBA doesn’t only serve the Charles Trippys and vlogbrotherses of the internet world, we also work with numerous charities, educational projects, and artists who rely on their check from DFTBA every month to, like, eat and pay rent. So killing the site for a few hours to disrupt their target’s sales has a rippling effect across all our smaller scale artists too. Not the problem I wanted to spend my morning fixing.

Update: Hah, our server company just recommended DDoS protection at an additional $500/month. Yeah, that’s an awesome use of our IT budget. :/

Second Update: DFTBA should be back up now for most of you, and all of you within the next hour or two. One hour. That’s all they were able to take us down for. We’re getting good at this odd task of circumventing these attacks once they start.

(Also, a hat tip to our IT guy Sam for jumping on this 30 seconds after I emailed him about it.)
