Keep your eyes peeled for Riot Pins

johnboy 7 August 2008 33

We’ve now taken delivery of some really very spiffy RiotACT pins. Keep an eye out for them around town and say hello to your fellow rioters.

They look rather good on lapels, ties, hats, wooly jumpers, and pretty much anything you can push a pin through. They will need minor modification for use as ear or nose rings unless you like the holding spike jabbing your ear-lobe/nose (you can file the spike off in a few minutes if determined).

But how do I get one I hear you cry?

Every premium member gets a pin (fear not early adopters your pin is on its way to you).

Offers of illicit sexual congress in back alleys to also be considered on a case-by-case basis.

I got mine today, thankyou they are very nice.
Madman i laughed at the red envelope as well, but i was wondering whose party i was invited to.

I went one further. The hand-writing was a dead spit for that of a relative with whom I’m not much talking with these days. So when I opened the envelope and saw the little pouch, I thought: “WTF? They’re sending me cuff-links??!!”

Very nice, and the size is such that if someone can’t quite see it properly, you can read them the….. never mind.

I was thinking anthrax attack 🙂

But the Christmas stamp was a nice touch.

thanks for my riotact pin I recieved yesterday!
Maybe wasn’t the best idea sending it to me in a red envelope!!!
I had the better half waiting all day for me to return home with this red envelope demanding answers to which girlfriend was sending me love letters!

Perfectly hideous pin to stab holes through perfectly fine garments.

One day my RiotACT pin may be a highly sought after collector’s item, G-Fresh, and those who miss out may be awfully gee-sorry and so forth.

: )

hehe

The massive armed bloke you refer to would have been Sam. He finished up at Erindale in mid-2004.

Maybe I have amalgumated the guy who used to manage Erindale a while back and you into one composite…

Massive arms.

Cameron’s a lovely man but we’d prefer the cash.

Let’s all be glad about that 😀

Not quite sure what a footballer carrying invisible luggage is built like ?? but yes I’m the Cameron from Goodberry’s… I used to own the Woden store before it went belly up and turned into a Lemon Grass. 🙁

If he also designed the logo that you put on the pin, just give him a pin.
You’ve aready reproduced his artistic work.

I’m prepared to support RA in ways other than becoming a premium member and with far greater value than the fifty that’d cost – ooerr.

Given that I don’t perceive the benefits of premium membership as being anything close to valuable, if I took it out it would only be to throw $50 at the RA team by way of support.

I think JB, Jazz and the rest of the RA team know that I’m prepared to support RA in ways other than becoming a premium member and with far greater value than the fifty that’d cost.

Or maybe I should just front the cash and be a premium member. The benefits though… article rating that I would rarely do, and seeing read and unread posts… for fifty a year? Unsure.

Careful with comments like that Cameron. JB no likey! See below:

From me – To be honest, I still really don’t see the added value in paying $50 per year. I’m first to admit that $50 over a years is nothing (Less than 14c a day) – but for the added benefits of being able to rate a story (many times I see a story which never gets any comments, but has a full 5 stars?!) – and the thingy to keep track of where you were up to really isn’t all that great.

Response from JB: Gosh Tyler, maybe if you took out the sub the starring would reflect your values? Or maybe you want to support a publication from which you derive much enjoyment? Or maybe you don’t want to take out premium membership? All fine options.

Well get your own hat, become a premium member and affix a pin.

ant ant 12:11 am 08 Aug 08

I want a Riotact police hat.

Awesome.

Given the amount of trime I waste on this site… it IS payday, afterall.

Madman Madman 6:38 pm 07 Aug 08

I just signed up this morning! Been thinking about it for a while.

Frequent here quite often so thought why the hell not – it makes it alot easier! Still reckon we need Bypasses. Oh when making the stickers make sure there’s some little ones for my motorbike! :-p

Somebody clever once said something to the effect of: “just when you’re getting sick of telling people is around the time they’re starting to listen”.

Anyway much appreciated and we’ll keep annoying everyone by promoting them further.
