I’m finally back from vacation and ready to get back to posting at a more regular clip. I thought I would get that started with this awesome, awesome t-shirt from Headline Shirts. It’s called Hunter S. Giraffe, and it rules. Check it out:
Hunter S. Thompson is a total badass, so whoever at Headline Shirts came up with the idea of making a giraffe version of him is a brilliant person. The design features the giraffe with Hunter’s customary hat and cigarette. It’s just something about a Hunter S. Thompson’like giraffe that gets me. So yeah, this design f&*&ing rules (censoring myself for effect).
I don’t post shirts like this a lot, but it’s too odd looking not to post. It’s probably my favorite take on the whole cat meme thing, just because it’s so horribly drawn. It’s almost mocking the cat meme (at least in my opinion, which is probably wrong). Check it out:
As you can see, the shirt is intentionally drawn badly–it’s so horrible it makes me laugh. Now, whether you’re willing to spend the 60 pounds that this t-shirt costs to buy something horribly drawn is one thing, but, I think this design is pretty awesome. Essentially, I admit this design is essentially expensive eye-candy (well, in a way…), but I liked it too much not to share. If you do want to buy it, or just want to check out the rest of Maison Twenty, go to this link.
I’ve seen this incredibly corny Star Wars pun before (on Twitter), so I was surprised and happy to see it turn up on a t-shirt. If you can’t read the text, it says “Lookin’ for love in Alderaan places,” which is a reference to Luke being a little weird, and the planet Alderaan from the Star Wars galaxy. As I said, it’s incredibly corny. I like it.
You can buy it for only $10 at Teefury. You only have four more hours to buy the shirt though, and then it’s gone forever. Don’t wait if you want it.
If you’re a fan of basketball or, at this point, a living human, you’ve probably heard of the Jeremy Lin phenomenon known as Linsanity. Lin is a benchwarmer who has suddenly come off the bench to lead the New York Knicks to seven straight victories. “Lin” based puns (linsanity, linning, etc.) have been popping up all over the place. Included in this have been some pretty awesome t-shirts. So, here’s a post dedicated to showcasing some of the best Linsanity t-shirts that have been released. I might even update it as new shirts come out. Although I like the 76ers (so the Knicks winning is bad), I can’t help but enjoy the Jeremy Lin craze–it’s way better than Tim Tebow. So yeah, get Linsane and check out the shirts:
The first t-shirt (buy it here) comes from the always witty folks at Busted Tees. I love the huge font. It’s a very simple shirt, but it looks great. I think this shirt perfectly encapsulates the epic nature of Linsanity. You can get a Busted Tees coupon here to save a little bit of money, but this shirt retails for $20.
This next shirt isn’t quite for sale yet, but Kineda assures people they almost have it printed and it will be up for purchase very soon. Lin makes a great cartoon drawing, and I think the illustration is done very well. I dig it. You should be able to purchase it here in a couple of days.
This bad boy is an official Linsanity t-shirt straight from the New York Knicks store. It’s a pretty solid design though–I love the use of the Knicks logo, and it looks kind of like a movie poster, which is great for something like Linsanity. Solid design, especially for coming straight from the Knicks. You can buy it for $19.95 at their store.
I like this simple design from the aptly named Linsanity.com (whoever registered that domain is super lucky!). As I said, very simple, but still a good design. I like how the text is a little “cracked”. You can buy it for $20 at their store.
If you’re looking for a cheaper option (in case Linsanity somehow fizzles out), this one is for you. It costs only a minuscule $9.95 at Wacky Planet. It looks very much like the official design, and for only $9.95 I think it’s a steal.
If you’re looking for a different take on Linsanity, check out this great “All I Do Is Lin, Lin, Lin” t-shirt from Skreened. The “lin” obviously replaces “win” from the popular DJ Khaled song. Good stuff.
I love this linsane play on the Rolling Stones album from Stack Clothing. This is one of my favorite Linsanity t-shirts, and it will only cost $15 at their store. That’s a bargain!
Here’s another very simple Linning t-shirt, also from Skreened. This is a great design if you want something simple and classy.
These are all the Linsanity t-shirts that I will be posting for now, though I will certainly update this list if I find any more cool ones. Also, please let me know in the comments if you find a cool design (or if you sell one). I’m going to leave you with this…even Sarah Palin has gone Linsane. Check it:
Here’s a brand new t-shirt from atslopes, the guys that made that awesome Philadelphia Flyers t-shirt I posted about a while ago. This new one is called “I “Like” Ice Cream” and features a witty mash-up of the Facebook like button and an ice cream cone. Given that I regularly eat a half gallon of ice cream in a day, I can definitely get behind this t-shirt. Check out the design below:
I definitely dig this design, and I like very much how they meshed the two objects together. It’s on sale for $27.00 at the atslopes store. They print their tees on American Apparel blanks. Also, if you like the Flyers, definitely check out the shirt I linked to above.
I was browsing around the Altru Apparel t-shirt store when I came across this awesome Popeye Silhouette t-shirt. It features an awesome silhouette (surprise) of everyone’s favorite spinach loving sailor. I dig the type face on the Popeye text, and I also think Popeye is striking an awesome pose. It looks great, and the design really pops. I also love how the black looks on the blue tee. Cool stuff.
You can buy the design for $36 at the Altru Apparel store. I know that price is a little steep for a t-shirt, but it is a cool design…maybe you think it’s a cool design worth $36.
Goodie Two Sleeves is a brand that I really enjoy, and they have always been to me (see ad on right), so I’m happy to post this ridiculous (in a good way) t-shirt I just found from them. It’s called Baby Baby Baby Meow, and features a…cat with Justin Bieber hair. Yes, this shirt is an illustration of an itty bitty kitten with Justin Bieber hair. Ridiculous. I dig it. Something about that hair and those cute little kitten eyes just melt my soul. The signature hoodie is a very nice touch as well. I would usually never post anything Bieber related, but this one makes the cut based on sheer goofiness.
You can buy this t-shirt from Goodie Two Sleeves for $21.95. For those who don’t know, Goodie Two Sleeves’ blank t-shirts are some of the most comfortable things around. You will be riding around in pure, unadulterated, cotton goodness. Yes, it feels as awesome as it sounds.
Trailer Park Boys is this ridiculous comedy series from Canada. I guess you could somewhat compare it to Eastbound and Down. That’s not perfect though–it really is its own, crazy show. The show is hilarious, and this t-shirt celebrates one of my favorite characters, Bubbles. He’s an interesting man, known for being a little eccentric and wearing huge glasses. Much like categorizing the show, Bubbles is very hard to describe. This video, The Best of Bubbles (warning, lots of bad language), might give you a little insight.
You can pick up the t-shirt from CraigJW on Etsy. It will cost you $19.00. CraigJW has lots of awesome shirts in this vein (portraits), so you will definitely be seeing stuff from him in the future. Give Trailer Park Boys a try too!
Are you ready for an absolutely ridiculous t-shirt? I hope so, because I present to you, Zombie Squirrel from the German brand Denada. This shirt is just crazy (awesome). All the little details–the brains in the acorn, the tattoos on the squirrel, the facial expression, it’s all great. Plus just the concept…IT”S A FRIGGIN’ ZOMBIE SQUIRREL. I like this t-shirt a lot, and kudos to Andy from Hamburg (the man behind Denada) for having the courage to show the world just how dangerous zombie squirrels can be.
You can add this ridiculawesome t-shirt to your closet for 29.90 Euro. Buy it, if only for the looks you’ll get from everyone around you.
Ript Apparel, a design competition that sells one t-shirt a day, has just released a great Ron Swanson themed Parks and Recreation t-shirt. If you watch the show, you know how much Ron Swanson loves bacon. This t-shirt encapsulates that. The text reads “Indiana Farm Fresh Bacon.” What I really love though, is the illustration of Ron himself. He looks like a super badass (which is very much what he is). Overall, a very good Parks and Recreation t-shirt, which makes sense because Parks and Rec is a great show.
You can pick up the t-shirt for only a mere $10 at Ript Apparel. You only have 24 hours to purchase the shirt before it’s gone forever though. While you have to act quickly, you can be sure you won’t ever bump into someone wearing the same shirt!
