In honor of the Lakers beginning the playoffs tomorrow, and entering into their run for a three-peat, I thought I would post up this shirt from 1two. As you can see, the text reads “The Real King Plays in Los Angeles.” This statement is, quite obviously, true, as Kobe is approximately 1.47 times better than Lebron. I’m checking out for the night now, but go Lakers!
You can pick this shirt up from the 1two store. It’ll cost you $27.99 if you want to add it to your closet.
Frank & Jan just kicked off their Spring 2011 line, including this piece of knowledge from one, Mr. Bob Dylan (who’s not taking no fucking responsibility for cats he doesn’t know, man). The statement is pretty poignant, as can be expected from Bob. The typography is simple, but I like it. Same deal with the colors–black and white isn’t breaking any barriers, but it looks cool + clean. Overall it’s a sweet little typographic/quotastic (that ain’t no word!) t-shirt from a great musician.
You can pick this one up for $24.00 from Frank & Jan. Be sure to check out the rest of their Spring releases while you’re at it.
Kafka Cotton was on my list for making some great literary shirts. Unfortunately, circumstances have forced them to shut down. They will close their doors for good on April 30th. Until then, they’re selling all their designs for 50% off. That’s a great deal–help ’em clean out stock before May rolls around.
Check out the store, and pick up a discounted Kerouac or Vonnegut shirt (among others).
I hinted about this shirt yesterday on Twitter. I wasn’t exaggerating, this is definitely one of my favorite designs, and one of the best I’ve seen in a while.
This shirt is, of course, based on the existential hard-on of a painting that is Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” (that sound kind of mean…I like The Scream). Ben Chen, the artist of the shirt, reproduces Munch’s painting within the world of Batman. The Joker replaces the “screamer,” and Batman replaces the people in the background of the original painting. Ben then added a bunch of small references–the cards, the bat signal–that you should check out in the detailed product pictures on the A Better Tomorrow site.
I really, really like this shirt. I love how unique it is, and I think Ben executed the design perfectly. It’s got that “it factor”–as soon as I saw it, even though the Euro exchange rate makes it incredibly expensive, I had to have it. This shirt is the bomb.
If you agree, you can pick it up for 22 Euro from the German shop A Better Tomorrow.
My other Charlie Sheen t-shirt post was such a huge attraction that I decided to give the people what they want, and make a list of every Charlie Sheen t-shirt that I can find. I already posted about those awesome Skreened quote-based Charlie Sheen shirts, but now I’m going to do every shirt there is (or that I can find). I’m also going to sprinkle in some more of my favorite quotes from his statements. Remember, live the Sheen Dream! I hope you enjoy:
Are you afflicted with bi-winning just like Charlie? If so, get yourself a prescription with this shirt from Rocks Off.
This one is just a little Sheen portrait, but I really like that they made his face blue. Check it out!
“If they do discover my blood to be tiger blood, I hope that nobody will be shocked!”
Another blue face shirt, this time with the Winning statement below is face. You can buy this one from Barstool Sports.
If you can’t read the text of this one, it says “I’m on a drug…it’s called Charlie Sheen.” I don’t think I could handle the drug called Charlie Sheen. If you think you can, though, buy this one from Donkey Ts.
I really like Kid Cudi. I posted that awesome Cudi portrait from The Cooler Collective a little while back, and now I’m going to partake in a little more Cudi love. This one is essentially the album cover, and I thoroughly dig it. I just think it’s an iconic image (even though Cudi ain’t quite at that icon status yet). The face on the moon was a great album cover, and it translates into a great shirt.
You can pick this one up from Karmaloop for $20.00. If you haven’t given Kid Cudi a listen yet, I recommend you do. Pursuit of Happiness and Revofev are good places to start in my opinion. We’ve also got a Karmaloop coupon good for 20% off your order, making the shirt only $16.
If you haven’t heard what’s been happening with Charlie Sheen lately, you need to find out, and then berate yourself for not knowing about it sooner. He’s become incredibly outspoken, in a crazy person type of way. Yet, I still can’t stop myself from saying, “Wow…that man is saying a lot of badass things, sprinkled between a lot of crazy things.” Here’s an illuminating video with some great lines, but if you’re more of a reader, here a few of my favorite quotes from him:
Here’s my personal favorite:
My conduct is bitchin’, my condition is perfect.
Some insight into his life:
I’m tired of pretending my life isn’t perfect and bitchin’ and winning every second.
His party style:
“[I was] bangin’ 7-gram rocks and finishing them because that’s how I roll. I have one speed, one gear … go!” and “I am on a drug, it’s called ‘Charlie Sheen.’ It’s not available ’cause if you try it once you will die. Your face will melt off, and children will weep over your exploded body.”
I’m bi-winning. I win here, I win there.
I could go on forever, but I’ll stop there in the interest of space. Suffice it to say, it’s a comedy gold mine. That’s why I’m so happy someone made this awesome collection of shirts. The shirts display one of Charlie’s quotes, or his face in some cases, with the text “Live the Sheen Dream” below. I’ve gotta say, I wouldn’t mind livin’ the Sheen Dream now and then, and I’m 99% sure I’m gonna buy one of these shirts. Go learn about living the Sheen Dream…if you think you can handle it, that is.
Thanks to Coty for inspiring this post and my interest in Charlie Sheen.
