Recycle from Print Liberation

Print Liberation is at it again (it being making cool shirts). The design isn’t complex at all, it’s just simple elements combined excellently to make a quality shirt.

I also like it because it’s not super in your face, as some “green” shirts can be. It’s a good design first, and a political message second (at least in my interpretation).

You can pick this design up for $22.00 at Print Liberation. Unsurprisingly, it’s printed on organic shirts.

Oil Blows Shirt from Print Liberation

So I was a little late to the game on this one. But…I guess the benefit of the oil still leaking is that this shirt is still relevant even if I’m 30+ (I couldn’t find the exact start date) late.

Print Liberation is never shy to point the finger at various instances of douchebaggery happening around the world, which is one of the reasons I like them. They also make the presentation of such finger pointing look pretty sweet, which is icing on the cake.

You can pick up “Oil Blows” for $18.00 at Print Liberation. It’s printed on an American Apparel blank.

P.S. Guess who’s not patronizing BP (whenever knowingly possible)? Me.

Atheist Bus Campaign Shirt

I don’t think I would ever wear this shirt in public, just because cramming my views about God (or lack thereof) down people’s throats is just as obnoxious as others cramming their views about God down my throat. That being said, I do find the Atheist Bus Campaign and the controversy around it very interesting. As far as I know the campaign is solely in the UK, and I’m not going to talk about it much here, but if you’re interested, you can check out their website.

And hell, I think the most important part of this shirt is the last two lines. They far eclipse any feelings I have towards the first two.

No Business from Supermarket, or Why I’m Never Working

nbshirt

I know this is most likely about the economy in general, but I’m instead choosing to take it as reinforcement of my plan to never work and just travel around, or, if need be, live like the people on Friends (have an awesome apartment in New York City but hardly ever work). So everyone wish me luck on that goal. Maybe I’ll just blog about t-shirts for a living.

I had this one teacher in high school who would always say “Nothing beats nothing” in regards to not having to work over summer break. I’m inclined to agree, except not actually nothing, just not feeling a compulsion to do anything you don’t want to.

Random life goal sharing aside, you can buy this at Supermarket for $20 on American Apparel.

Abraham Lincoln 1860 Presidential Campaign Shirt

lincoln-rail-menslincoln-rail-womens

When Lincoln wasn’t busy fighting Big Foot, he did things like running for and being President (weird, I know). It may be a little late, but if you want to show your support, you can thanks to Retro Campaigns.

It’ll run you $29.95, with all the profits going to the Lincoln campaign (jokes! A bad one at that).

Sensationalism from Shirt Fight

shirt-fight-sensationshirt-fight-sensation2

There are a bunch of these type of shirts, but I still find myself liking them–it’s just something about people in suits with TVs where their heads should be I guess. I do especially like the bears on this one though. Plus, it’s from mathiole, who is pretty rad. Check it out at Shirt Fight. It’ll run ya $18.

Heroin from Christopher Tod

heroinheroin2

You can’t buy this shirt anymore, and I’m not sure many could have afforded it with its $89.00 price tag, but this shirt from Christopher Tod still warrants a post in my opinion. I find it really interesting how many illegal drugs were, or still are, marketed as legal pharmaceuticals. It’s kind of ridiculous in my opinion, and this shirt somewhat pokes fun at that, and rightfully so.

Commercially introduced to the world by The Bayer Company in 1898, Heroin’s debut quickly saw rise to a new “star” in the drug world – one whose fame, or infamy is beyond dispute.

Etymology: Heroin, a derivitive of Heroisch – The German word for Heroic – this was how test subjects initially reported they felt after consuming the drug.

History: Heroin’s highly distinguished profile may make this hard to fathom, but Heroin was once available over-the-counter.  From it’s introduction in 1898 until the passing of the Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914 Heroin as well as cocaine and opium were unregulated.

Heroin was used in common cough syrup.  As with most opioids and opiates, Heroin is an effective respiratory depressant.  It was used in the treatment of the common cold, and respiratory diseases such as; Pneumonia, Influenza, Whooping Cough, Tuberculosis, etc…  Of key importance; Antibiotics – such as Penicillin, were not available until the 1940’s – One of the aforementioned diseases could result in long-term debilitation or Death.  To suppress the body’s coughing certainly helped a patient get the rest needed for their body to do it’s own healing.  It should be noted however that opiates impair the body’s immune system.

One of the more interesting Heroin facts is that it was initially believed and advertised to be less addicting than Morphine.  Therefore, Heroin was used as a treatment for Morphine addiction, which was known to some as “Soldiers’s Disease” by the association of Morphine addicts from the Civil War.  This type of replacement therapy is akin to the current practice of prescribing Methadone as an effective narcotic replacement in Heroin addicts today.

Will Work For Euros from Local Celebrity

How cool would it be to get paid in Euros? It’s unfortunate when the dollar (or random rich white men) decides to just go and tank though, especially when you spend two weeks in Europe at the beginning of summer.

Hopefully good ‘ole Washington wipes the blood of his face sometime soon and steps his game up. Until then, keep spending your shrinking cash on shirts like this from Local Celebrity. Use coupons too!

Legalize Freedom from LiNK–Shirts for a Cause

men_legalize_dark_largemen_legalize_dark_large2

So this is somewhat of a long quote, but here’s the entire mission statement from LiNK, which I think is better in their own words:

LiNK exists so that one day the crisis in North Korea will not. We operate under a mandate that does not allow us to remain silent about the human rights and refugee crisis that is a result of this emergency. We educate, protect, advocate, provide and empower the North Korean people so that one day they will have the opportunity to live in true freedom.

EDUCATE: We share relevant stories of North Korean citizens and refugees through creative media, and we promote the truth about the humanitarian crisis inside and around North Korea to the world.

PROTECT: We protect North Koreans in pursuit of freedom, seeking asylum, and in need of assistance – wherever they can be reached.

ADVOCATE: We advocate on behalf of the North Korean people for human rights and fundamental freedoms. We call upon our leaders to do more because we know they can.

PROVIDE: Within the capacity of our resources and mandate, we offer assistance to North Koreans, NGO’s, governments, and other partners working toward the same mission.

EMPOWER: We empower refugees with resources, assistance and guidance to reach freedom and to build new lives. We also empower citizens of the world to take action and make a difference in their individual lives.

On top of that, their designs are actually really good. It’s a win-win. Check them out at the LiNK store.

Bomb Drop from ReThink Clothing

bombrethinkbombrethink2

Ok, so I might have lied about having an Internet connection while I was in Ohio. Now I’m back for good though (or at least for the next 3 weeks for sure), so hopefully there will be a good stretch of uninterrupted posting.

Today’s shirt is Bomb Drop from the ever cool and supportive (they’re an advertiser!) ReThink Clothing. It’s a pretty slick looking release. I’ll let them give it a quick description in their own words:

bomb,bomb,bomb, bomb,bom babomb.
Ok, it may be more than that. A bomb unraveling in the clouds might symbolize peace and disarmament to some and GOOD. That is the great thing about this shirt to some its a symbol of peace and hope, to others it looks flipping cool!

I’d say they’re fairly accurate. You can pick it up for $19.99 at their site. I think you can also use the code TROUNDUP for 20% off your order, so hopefully that’s helpful. They print on American Apparel.
