Via the wonder that is Twitter, Glasgow on Film this week learned about an absolutely fantastic website – getaroundglasgow.spreadshirt.uk
Get Around Glasgow has a huge selection of T shirts, hoodies and tote bags – every one of them uniquely Glaswegian, with some brilliant messages and imagery. You will find everything from stylised tributes to the city’s many areas (a Coca-Cola style Carnwadric for example) and well known phrases to very smart interpretations of topical stories to come out of Glasgow, such as 2011’s infamous “Hurricane Bawbag” and the recent opening of the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, and designs inspired by Glasgow television classics like Still Game and Taggart.
As for movies, take your pick – again the choice in this category alone is immense. There’s A Poke Of Chips Now, The Springburn Identity and Pollok, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels to name a few, and Bond fans are well catered for with the likes of From Royston With Love, The Govan Daylights and Dr. Naw. Meanwhile there are some very special designs that were produced when Glasgow went wild for World War Z during last summer’s shoot in the city – examples being Brad’s Zombie Army and I Was A Glasgow Zombie.
