Soderbergh Launches 'Extension 765' Selling Shirts, Artwork & More
"A one-of-a-kind marketplace from Steven Soderbergh." Wait, what? The same filmmaker who went off on a brilliant State of Cinema rant is now reinventing the online store, too? A new website/"marketplace" has launched called Extension 765 that is hawking various props, memorabilia, collectibles, swag and t-shirts related to Soderbergh and cinema. The site is very straightforward but includes some great quotes about the concept and why he's selling the things he's selling. The prices are considerably high ($38 for a t-shirt?) but if you're a big Soderbergh fan or want some genuinely unique swag, that may be worth it. "Don't sell us out!"

Check out the site found via Daring Fireball. "There are some very cool sites that sell film-related T-shirts — and I've bought stuff from them — but I feel like in general the design work is kind of inconsistent, and more importantly, the references tend toward the obvious... But if someone asks you where you got it, you better say it was a gift or you woke up and it was on you already or some shit. Don't sell us out!" That comes from the page for the "Threads", or the designer t-shirts that sell for $38. He's also selling scripts/autographs and art photographs and even booze of sorts. What is Soderbergh up to? The site was created by LaunchJam but still seems to mostly all Steven Soderbergh, with cool hidden gems like the Division of Human Engineering.
