This design is straight up goofy. You’ve got a green tusked walrus sporting the biggest of power mustaches and…wait, nope, that’s all the relevant information. I almost feel like he should be wearing a monocle to complete the look. Still, I have no second-thoughts in saying that I’m a huge fan of this design, even if the Walrus has misplaced his monocle.
If you’re interested in picking up this design, head on over to Fuzzy Ink (who specialize in mustached t-shirts), pull out your handy credit card, authorize a charge for $21.00, and enjoy the shirt. Oh yeah, we’ve also got a Fuzzy Ink coupon for you to save with.
P.S. I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
You didn’t think I would go the whole post without referencing the Beatles song, did you? Also, am I missing any reference (other than the general psychedelic nature of the design) to the song beyond the title? Let me know if I am!
Celebrations! One of my favorite designs, Rap Music Makes Me Feel Invincible, is now back in stock. I’ve posted about this shirt before, but at that point it was out of stock (because everyone was buying it because it’s so awesome).
To reiterate my earlier post, I love this shirt because of the truth of this statement. I’m listening to rap (Kanye West-Power) while writing this post, and I’ve gotta level with you…I feel like a total badass. I’m gonna shower and then go tear the night up, because I’m invincibbbbblllllllleeeeeeeeeee.
Go pick it up at Print Liberation. You won’t regret your decision. If you’re having trouble getting the motivation to shell out $22.00, listen to some rap and then go make it rain.
Lastly, I’m hoping to get out to Print Liberation’s Northern Liberties, Philadelphia store soon (maybe even this weekend) so that will be cool. Maybe I’ll tell everyone a story about it.
Young Lovers has just released their 2011 collection, titled “Creatures of the midnight.” After browsing around, I can tell you that I’m quite enamored with it. My favorite is definitely this one: Dylan x Beethoven. Much like the title suggests, it’s an eye-catching combination portrait of Bob Dylan and Beethoven. Young Lovers’ execution of this design is top-notch–it comes off incredibly well. Like their product description tells us, it’s two incredible musical minds colliding on one shirt, and it looks great.
If the price is a bit steep for you (here’s to you, college students!), Young Lovers is providing you with a great chance to win your three favorite shirts for free. All you have to do is go to their site and click the Facebook “like” button for each of the three designs you want. After that, you just have to wait until January 31st, when Young Lovers will pick five people to give three shirts each to. That’s cool!
I posted up The Cooler Collective’s awesome Kid Cudi shirt a little while back, and now they’ve come out with another shweet offering featuring none other than Biggie Smalls. It’s in much the same style as the Cudi shirt, but goes with a white silhouette on a black shirt to mix it up a wee bit.
Notorious B.I.G. is another rapper I’m a big fan of (so unique!), so I obviously have some love for this shirt. Again, it’s a great portrait, and the imperfect nature of the whole thing makes it super cool. The Cooler Collective has a few of these rapper portraits and seem to be releasing new ones, so expect to see more on troundup in the future.
If you wanna pick this one up, head on over to their store, where you can purchase it for $21 American dollars.
A while ago I posted this idea of doing a wittily alliterative series of posts called “Music Mondays,” which would feature me posting up a shirt from one of the bands I like every Monday. I’ve decided I want to bring this back. Now it won’t necessarily be every Monday, and it might not even be on a Monday at all, but I’m going to do it. I like band shirts for two reasons: First, I get a lot of my music for free.99, so I want to at least give the band some merch money. Secondly, a lot of bands just have damn cool shirts. It’s a win-win.
The first shirt (in a while) that I want to feature is Teen Dream, a shirt for the band Beach House. This is not Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, because that came after and kind of stole the name. It’s Beach House, who has deservedly blown up with their most recent album. Favorite tracks of wine from Teen Dream include Used to Be, Take Care, and Zebra.
I think the shirt looks pretty damn cool too. A cool shirt for a cool band. You can pick the shirt up for $19.99 at Insound, which is a great company selling lots of merch/CD/vinyl. It’s printed on American Apparel 50/50 shirt. I’m happy to be able to support Insound. They did that great 10 for 10 series of shirts I posted about, which contains another awesome Beach House shirt.
Who all’s going to the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tonight? I’m not, but I know a bunch of people who are. I think it’s going to be pretty sweet when I eventually see it. To commemorate the event, I’m posting up a few new Harry Potter designs which have been emailed to me. Note that this is not supposed to be a list or favorites by any means, but rather the newest shirts from NerdyShirts in the Harry Potter niche, which will soon be followed by a more in-depth post designed to satisfy your wizarding needs. So yeah, here’s two shirts I’ve been emailed about recently as a sort pre-mature, celebratory, “road paving for the big post”y, thing.
A shirt for all you die-hard fans who have been with Harry from the start.
Another design for those who are the closest of friends with Mr. Harry Potter.
So yes, expect a much larger list of designs in the near future, and I did post up a few Harry Potter shirts previously if you wanna go check those out.
Have fun tonight everyone, no matter what you may be doing!
P.S. We’ve also got a Nerdy Shirts coupon going if you wanna pick up one of these shirts. It should be good for 10% off your order.
Kid Cudi is the bomb diggity…at least when he was rapping. I’m not sure how I feel about his newly announced decision to move into the rock genre and forsake his awesome, awesome rap roots, but I guess we’ll see how it goes. If you didn’t know who Kid Cudi was before reading this post, I recommend you check him out, because he’s got a pretty solid body of work. I’ll post a video of one of his songs below to facilitate the aforementioned delving into the musical world of Cudi.
I also love this shirt. It’s just a great portrait. I love how the black looks on the blue and how much Cudi’s glasses pop out. I’m not sure if Cudi is anywhere near the recognizability required for a majority of people to know who’s on the shirt, but I kind of like that. It gives the shirt a bit of mystery, and “Who’s that on your shirt?” is one of the best ways to start a conversation with new and unknown people
You can pick this one up for $21.00 at The Cooler Collective, who have some great shirts. I’m not entirely sure, but I think they might use American Apparel blanks (at least that’s what the shirt mock-ups lead me to believe).
I’ve unfortunately not had Internet for the better part of the past week, leaving me unable to post even though I actually had time to do posting. But…I’m moved into my new apartment in Philadelphia, have working Internet, and am ready to get going. So let’s go…
These offerings come from Insound. They’ve made 10 shirts (and 10 posters) for 10 bands that had a significant impact on music in 2010. I love music (look how unique I am!), so I’m pretty embracing of such motivation. The shirts come from Beach House, Neon Indian, Liars, Titus Andronicus, Broken Social Scene, Girls, Mountain Goats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and Owen Pallet.
All the designs incredibly well done, and Sonnenzimmer’s (the artist/s) style is pretty dang good. I’ve posted four of the designs from some of my favorite bands on the list, but you should check all 10 of them out. They’ll run you $22.00 over at Insound and they’re printed on American Apparel. The posters are also awesome. Check them too.
How true is this statement? Throw on some rap and you feel like you can take on the world, which makes it great for workouts–that or the Strokes (my other workout mix).
I’m really glad Print Liberation decided to bring this one back–I wanted to buy it before but they had already sold out of my size. Don’t delay then, because this might sell out fast.
You can pick it up on the awesome American Apparel tr-blend shirt for $22.00. I own like 8 of the tri-blends and wear them at least a couple times a week–they’re deliciously soft. Check it out at Print Liberation. They kick ass.
I’ve been riding the Nickelback hate bandwagon for quite a while now–I think since about when I first heard one of their songs. Therefore, I feel a compulsion to post about anything involving hating Nickelback. And thus, I present you with this post: Blame Canada for Nickelback.
PS. Now I have that voice stuck in my head. Look at this photographhhhhhhh. Shoot me.
PSS. I’m not usually this vindictive. Really. I’m not.
