I’ve had a lot of people ask me for an official Mean Melin T-shirt and I’ve finally gotten my act together and figured out a way to make it happen.

After spending five days on the U.S. Air Guitar 2010 tour, where I racked up five straight second-round appearances and zero first-place finishes, I feel like I was just hitting my stride this year (not to mention, having the time of my life)! Air guitar, in all its absurdity, has officially sunk its teeth into me.

May 28 in Las Vegas, however, will be my last chance to qualify for the USAG Nationals, which are July 22 in New York City.After last week’s USAG tour, funds are a little low, and after looking up flights to Vegas for that weekend, I’ve discovered they are running just over $300 (more than the four flights Peter ‘Stiff’ Dickens and I booked for last week put together).

I guess Memorial Day weekend is a popular time to fly to Sin City–who knew?

Anyway, I figured out a way for you to get a certified, metal-as-hell Mean Melin T-shirt and for me to raise enough money to get to Vegas for one last hurrah!mean melin t-shirtEach $20 donation to the Mean Melin USAG 2010 fund gets you a preorder of one Mean Melin tee (pictured right, and designed by Jon Sholly).Please specify the size you want (Youth Large, S, M, L, XL) and the shirts will ship when I get home from Vegas (the first week in June).meanmelinlogo.jpg

Any money you want to donate beyond that is cool too, but if you donate $40, you’ll get two T-shirts, $60 is three, and so on. See how that works?

I had so much freaking fun on the tour, and finally figured out the best song to perform and the best way to get it across, but it took me 5 times to figure it out. Abruptly, the tour had ended for me.

But with your donation of $20, you’ll be one of the few to own a kick-ass Mean Melin tee and help me raise the funds to rock once more, in search of that elusive regional title. (By the way, all shirts are 100% Cotton, black, and have sleeves. If you want to cut ‘em off like me, you’re more than welcome!)

You’ll fill out your mailing address and everything through PayPal. Please specify your T-shirt size in the ‘message’ line!
