atari computers

The first time I played Resident Evil, my virtual me refused to move despite me panickily pressing 20 buttons per second. I stood there super lethargic as zombies slowly crept closer and closer before finally killing me off very quickly. I gave it a second go with Lara Croft. She frantically turned and turned in 3D-modus until me - and Lara - felt kind of sick and tangled. So this T-Shirt is a statement to everyone, who wishes they were back in the good old easy days when computer games were one-way, two-buttoned and far far away from three-D(eranged). Fuck Lara Croft. Long live Pong!


Most people who don´t know me that well think I must have been a little devil as a child, but that’s not true at all! I was so sweet that I even dressed up as an angel on Halloween. I put on my older sister´s communion dress and a white t-shirt that I drew a pair of wings onto; everyone laughed at this little angel on the night of witches and ghosts... Many years later, when we were living in Germany, we celebrated “Carnival” instead of Halloween, a softer event to which angels are very welcome. But I was a teenager by then so I preferred to go as a vampire, a business man or a punk. Maybe that’s why no-one here believes that I used to be as good as gold...
