2001: A Space Odyssey T-Shirt (HAL 9000, Stanley Kubrick)

2001: A Space Odyssey T-Shirt (HAL 9000, Stanley Kubrick)
We've created another rare swag item to portray a Kubrick character who we all love to quote, HAL 9000, the artificial intelligence without whom Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, would not be what it is. Some see him as a villain, whereas we see him as a beautiful neural network whose mental wiring just wasn't built to sustain lies. As such, HAL's descent into insanity is what this shirt is all about. Memorable symptomatic quotes of HAL's demise, mangled amidst the lines of Daisy Bell, fading into blackness, is our memory of HAL 9000.

'I'm feeling much better now Dave'
'Dave, I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill and think things over'
'Just what do you Think your doing Dave?'
'I see you're really upset about this Dave'
'I'm afraid. I'm afraid Dave'
'Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it'
'There's no question about it. I can feel it.'

HAL's ever so familiar eye is surrounded by his frame that is shaped by the lyrics of Daisy Bell in grey and the above HAL quotes in red against the black of the shirt. The final eerie quote as HAL drifts away on this shirt reads
'Good afternoon. I am a HAL 9000 computer...'
