Starbucks giving away t-shirts designed by Project Runway’s Mychael Knight

Starbucks is giving away t-shirts that feature a design by Project Runway 3 finalist Mychael Knight. (By the way, that’s the way he actually spells his name; “That’s the way I’ve always spelled it. When I filled out the “Project Runway” application, I put my birth name on there. But everybody in Atlanta knows me by Mychael with a ‘y,'” he told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

The t-shirts are available on Starbucks’ “Make it your drink” web site. However, you can’t just receive a shirt by visiting the site.

Cryptically, Starbucks says, “We only have a very limited number to give away each day, so check back daily at 10 a.m. PST, and try again. We will be giving out a limited number of free shirts every day through February 28.”

Designing the shirt has “been taking up most of my time,” Mychael tells the paper. “I’ve been so excited, and I want it to be a successful campaign.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
