VSauce-in-the-Box and Brain Candy Live!

 

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.

So, if you’re in a hurry or need absolute perfection, I might recommend going to professionals for at least part of the process. As with anything though, a little research, practice and the right supplies can get you exactly the results you’re after. Continue reading “Custom T-shirts”
