Looking for "Pajama Patrol Badges" or who ever made them about 2004. Any Help you can give me I would appreciate it. Thanks
Ooh....Look what I just found. (google can be your friend - sometimes)
I would edit and crop out that vertical line on the right side of it. I would have done it and posted it myself, but just too lazy.
PS: Didn’t notice the vertical line is on the left too.
I believe I would re-size the entire thing as well. It’s a tad big in screen area, just to be a badge.
Here it is, lines removed, and re-sized to occupy less screen area. :p (the text on the badge IS less legible at this size though. I may play with it some more.)
Mine is prettier.... ;^p
(yours does look more like a read badge though lol)
Here’s a link to the 2004 thread:
Being a new guy (I;ve only been here 5 or 7 years), What is pajama patrol? Late night FReepers?
see the link in 8 to get started.
I heard Laz tried to use his in the evenings, going door to door in his apartment complex.
He ditched the idea after finding out that just because a cute girl lives there, doesn’t mean that’s who answers the door.
I want one.
I think that all Freepers in good standing should get one on the 10th Freeper anniversary.
But I know that you are the real deal. LOL
The guy went out of business a couple of years ago. I got his email news leters counting down his clearance sales until the last day.
Forgot to say as I sit here now I am wearing my FR baseball cap and PJ Patrol t-shirt with “higgmeister” written above it.
As you see in the link above the “www.0cents.com” domain is for sale now.
I also got a metal badge, a lapel pin and three different t-shirts.
I think the graphic was by bcjohnson or Registered. The “Eagles Up!” t-shirt was by bcjohnson.
Seriously. I'd buy a few.
I blew it last time.
Thanks for the ping lysie. I designed the badge but another Freeper made the products. How may I be of service to another member of the class of '98?
OK, here is the story as best I remember. There is, or was a freeper member named “Buckhead” from Atlanta who was the person that blew the whistle on the CBS news Dan Rather false story during the 2004 election about letters falsely proving Bush used special influence to keep from being sent to Vietnam. Freeper Buckhead was the first person to notice the phoney letter that was supposed to be from the late 1960’s was typed up using modern word processor equipment, not a typewriter from the 1960’s. Freeper Buckhead’s discovery lead to dan rather being fired from CBS. The pajama thing comes from Buckhead himself, who use to say that he did his anti dan rather research while wearing Pajamas in front of his puter. I think this is a reasonably accurate but very short explanation of what happened 8 years ago.
Buckhead is still active. I just looked, he last posted 12/1.
And that’s a reasonably accurate summary of events as I remember them. I remember reading buckhead’s post soon after it was made and thinking “this guy is spot on!”
Anyone who came of age with typewriters and then worked with desktop computers - and their printers - from the beginning “got it” immediately.
And I think the pajamas part came about because of a derisive comment made by some mainstream media news type about “disgruntled bloggers in their pajamas” - soon after which it became apparent that said bloggers had sleuthed out CBS’s lies and taken down Dan Rather.
One web site that sold them 0cents.com went out of business.
My pleasure, ForGod’sSake.
Yours is just like mine. :) Thanks, Gene McDonald! bttt
Yours says Syncro on it?
Wish I had the real thing instead of a CGI
Do you have any more of those badges. A couple of my local Tea Party (one is an old time freeper like me (96)), and they saw mine and were wondering if they were still avaialable?
Could use two right away. Maybe more if others see the badge itself.
Sorry. Great graphic but we are looking for the badge itself.
“Badges, what Badges? We don’t need no stinkin Badges”
Right on. Late night freeping.......
Tried all those guys listed on the original and all they would or could do was print T shirts, not make badges.
I don’t need no mo stinkin T Shirts. Gimme a Badge
Wore my FR hat out years ago. Repaired it a couple of times but gave up a few months ago as it was getting beyond ratty.
put mine on my Beretta Holster when I open carry. Get lots of respects and NO questions.
If you can find someone who could make a batch as good as the first one I bet you would get a lot of sales. Sounded like the guy who did the originals (really professional looking) made to many instead of making a few and then seeing what the true demand was.
Just hope he made some good money doing it. John Galt would be proud of his effort.
Damn. I remember that article like it was yesterday. The National Guard used the old style typewriters and this letter was in San Serif which wasn’t developed until about 84 or so. One thing that proved it was that and “i” nestles under a “T”, “f” and a few other letters something that an old style typewriter could not possibly do. It had to have been done on a computer, not on a typewriter.
In any case, I presume you've contacted the guy that produced them, Freeper "Seeking the truth", by freepmail to see if he had any more? I wasn't aware he had gone out of business til I was pinged to this thread. I gather he probably had a going-out-of-business sale at some point and probably has few if any left.
I don't remember the original price of the badges but they weren't exactly cheap. I suspect demand for more would be fairly limited since the Rathergate dust up has all but fallen down a rabbit hole. Sorry I couldn't have been of more assistance, but good luck in your search.
That is what I am beginning to figure out.
It seems that most people have short memory spans and few if any remember what started this whole mess.
-—— a forged document that was so poorly done that someone with basic knowledge of the US Military (Natl Guard) and the advancement of computer print technology vs typewriter technology would clearly see through the fraud.
