On Saturday night, a bunch of my friends were bored and looking up stuff on the internet, so I told them to go to Matazone. I showed them Samuri Lapin first, then we looked at the Mittens anims, then all the Little Goth Girls. We all share the same slightly-twisted sense of humour, so it was great. We stayed up til 2am just watching the screen!

We are all really tempted to get some of those T-Shirts, but I'd be worried about the shipping charges from UK to Canada. I might be worth it though.....

Keep up the great work Mata!!!

Oh it is worth it. I must say that the shirts I have may have cost more than what I normally pay for a T-shirt, but they all look brand new still. The logo's don't crack or peal and you can just tell it's a quality shirt. I'd rather pay more for a shirt that lasts longer than pay little amounts for shirts that wear out fast. On top of that you could look super schway with matazone threads. biggrin.gif

I agree, Lo, the shirts are really good quality. Considering my "I can smell your brains." shirt is still in great condition, and I have had it.. Well.. I've had it since hm.. well... Last year. Its not in my possesion at the moment, but it still looks great, along with all my newer matazone shirts. They are great, and I must have more!

I think this website is awesome it is the best thing in the world. The first time I saw snowdrop and mittens was at a Rocky Horror Picture Show gathering and they had it going on the massive screen in the back and i thought it was the greatest thing in the world so i look at it all the time and i have a button i made out of one of the foroum things on my my little pony website haha. ph34r.gif Also, I just ordered a shirt and the shipping is pretty reasonable, i paid like 6 bucks thats better then when I shipped a poster to India!! I think Mata is awesome and I will continue to buy stuff. biggrin.gif

ohmy.gif My animations have been shown on a big screen to a crowd?!?!? Wheeeeee!!!!! biggrin.gif

Err... Anyway, 'glad you like the animations, and if you're worried about the shipping rates then you can check them out in advance by clicking on one of the 'add shipping' buttons in the shop and seeing what they are before you buy.

The more T-shirts you buy at once the cheaper the shipping works out per-top. I'm not like some websites that sell their stock cheap then add loads onto what it really costs to send things. Also, with the weakness of the US dollar at the moment the prices are a bit of a bargain!

One of my tops has lasted brilliantly (This is my world LGG one) but the other one has stretched down one side (LGG goes nuts). It's still OK enough to wear though but I wish my t-shirts wouldn't do that sad.gif I think I need a new washing machine

/me goes to Comet biggrin.gif

EDIT: I'm sure it is my washing machine, I don't want people to think Mata's t-shirts are poo....coz they ain't.....they are brilliant!!!!! laugh.gif

I look at a lot of the posts in here, but I don't usually reply to a lot of them otherwise I'd spend all day typing here and never getting any work done (although it has become harder to animate since I started these forums!).

Pixie, I've found that some of the first print run of the LGG goes nuts T-shirts seem to have had a problem with the white layer. They're fine when I get them but after about twenty or thirty washes they crack a bit. I'm quite annoyed about it actually because I take great pride in the quality of the prints I nag my printers into giving me, but apparently I didn't nag hard enough that time!

I have a friend in Australia who says she went to a local club near Perth to see some friends of hers in a band, and there were no less than 10 people wandering around in Matazone t-shirts. She thought it was odd until the band started playing and all of THEM were wearing matazone t-shirts, the drumkit was covered with Mr. Snaffleburgers, and they were showing the Mittens episodes on a screen behind them while they played happy.gif Apparently this band is one of your biggest fans down there tongue.gif

Hooray for our crappy economy!!!! Did anyone catch Bush's latest State of the Union? He claims our economy has undergone a major uprising thanks to "all of us"...how about "thanks to all of us, in spite of everything Washington did"? Ugh...I hate this president. But at least he made buying things from foreign countries cheaper!!!

Err... I've only sent... Ooo, probably less than six T-shirts to Australia. It sounds like there's a major case of bootlegging going on there. Could you find out some more details about the band please, I'd be very interested in finding out where they bought their T-shirts from!

Actually the US economy has made it more expensive for you to buy things from other countries, it's just that because I sell in US dollars I then get hit by the rubbish exchange rate and I don't have time to spend several hours changing the prices in my shop everytime the dollar slumps and devalues even further. I have no idea what Bush is talking about when he says about a revival in your economy because this time last year $1000 = about 670, currenly $1000 = around 540. It's dropped a massive amount in it's value on the global market!

Yeah, I have no idea what Bush was talking about either. The bf and I were watching the State of the Union on MSNBC online, and we were both hollering at Bush-on-the-Screen that he was a lying sack of excrement...happy.gif I sure as heck know MY monetary situation hasn't improved a whit since the depression hit.

Regarding the band in Aussie...I'll try to get more info. Unless there's a large group of Aussies that have been getting their shirts mailed to them by cross-continental friends, that does seem pretty weird....

No problem, I've messed up and order in the last couple of days for the first time in ages so a lady in the UK and a chap in the US have got eachother's T-shirts... Oops! Ah well, these things are bound to happen occasionally, I'm glad I got your one right and you like it.

You should've mentioned you are on my forums I would've put a few babges in with your T-shirt too!

Sweet. I tell folks all the time about the site and the forums. I'll mention a few when I actually have the cash to order a shirt. dry.gif

I have a load of friends and acquaintences whom I tell about Matazone. So many guys I know love web animations and Matazone is DEFINATELY a primo site.

Well, I found out about this place from Sean, and I've told a few friends about it since then. None of them post on the forums, unfortunately, and I don't think they appreciate the animations as much as I do (except for Shibs, of course, but she's special smile.gif) but I'm still spreading the word!

I really want to buy some t-shirts, but I just can't afford them. The Singapore dollar is tied to the US dollar in some way (though it's worth quite a bit less) so our economy isn't doing too great either. Meh. Maybe I should convince my parents that I really need some new t-shirts...

I had a link to this site in my sig at another forum, and all of my friends magically followed me here. I like it because I can get away from the parts of the other forum that I detest, and the people here really let the inner me come out without the added pressure of being judged. You all are so very kind and openminded...

And it all started when someone in my AP Biology class last year wanted to show me the first Mittens animation...happy.gif

For me, looking at the animations and such started by clicking on the link in Marsyas' signature at the other message board we go to. I have shown my friends the other animations and they love them.

I'm always surprised by all the people I run into who know about the anims even before I run my mouth about them. ^^ I earned my second semester computer credits by pretending to do work while I played the 'yes we have no weapons of mass destruction' game. Good times, good times...
