It's sarcasm. We don't really think of him as a God. He's more like Jesus.

And blaspheming His Name will damn us into becoming Emek lovers covered in Phish-stink. :wink:

Between hanging around on Obey for a while, and the secondary market, these things are going to be readily available for a long, long time. I'm betting you'll be able to get them cheaper on eBay than what Obey is charging now.

Congrats to all who took the plunge, though.

I wouldn't be so sure. The Guns and Roses offset (EB price range is here) was a run of 750, was available on Obey Giant for almost 2 weeks and originally sold for $25.

Its six-months' average is now a hare over $97 and has sold for as much as $285.

It's indisputable that the Guns and Roses print has done well. However, they're not the same print, nor even close. They just happen to both be offset Fairey prints of large runs. It's not really something that's arguable at this point, but time will tell.

You're obviously not Catholic...according to them God and Jesus are one and the same.

How are people still buying this crap every week? It's like Fairey isn't even pretending to try any more.
allright, you won... we both had a 50-50 shot though... Lets keep a running bet going, next time I come back we'll tally up the posters (Muslim Woman/Peace Related vs Anti-Cap/Money) and we'll see who comes out ahead...

Wow. That's like betting Warhol, were he alive, would release something related to pop culture.

I wonder if Emek will release a rock-related print next... :roll:
