I’ve been a huge fan of both Mythbusters and the YouTube channel, VSauce, pretty much since they started, so when I saw the announcement for the Brain Candy Live Tour, I bought VIP tickets within an hour. The tickets come with a chance to ask questions and get photos with Adam Savage and Michael Stevens, the respective hosts. I started to think about what I’d like to ask them and realized that more than anything I wish there was a way to thank them for the years of entertainment, education, and inspiration.
Making stuff is part of how I’ve always let people know that I appreciate them. From canning my and my roomate’s laughter, to making a talking “Drinking Out of Cups” action figure, I always find myself making personalized gifts for all my friends; so why not my role models?
For Adam, I made a shirt that says Savage AF, because who doesn’t wish they were as cool as Adam? See more about that in my post on Custom T-Shirts.
Michael’s gift is a little bit more complicated. I originally designed a shirt featuring Michael crouching in front of a camera, because it’s obvious he must do this about a dozen times to make a VSauce video.
