Featured on the front of this year’s t-shirt is the light bulb of hope. It was originally designed as artwork for Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s F# A# Infinity, though by who specifically I’m unsure (probably Mr. Efrim Menuck). On the original design a Russian word could be seen written across the top of the screw cap, but instead I wrote in “Esperanza” – the Spanish word for “hope.”
Until ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! was released, and the subsequent tour was underway, the members of Godspeed were opposed to printing t-shirts and selling merchandise at their concerts due to their anti-consumerism ideology, and in fact they encouraged fans to design and print unique Godspeed shirts of their own. So, I have done just that for this year’s mission team.
Remember, hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.
