    Ha ha. That's what I think. I think they don't really carry actual meaning themselves. Perhaps he's trying to be funny so that he's talking nonsense. :wink:

    It's not a fabricated land, like, say, Hollywood. It's natural, down to earth, honest to nature, natural, nothing modern about it.

    So you like my shirt, do you? Well, I really had nothing to do with its design; I simply purchased it. But if you like it that much, then allow me to take full credit for its existence: I made it myself :D, out of wood (i.e., wood pulp when soaked and then dried results in paper-like fabric). It's a labour intensive process. 8)

    Cassy,

    Are you pulling our leg here? I think you're reading to much into it. It's an interesting concept but for the life of me I have never heard a person talk about t-shirts made out of wood. Cool!!!
