I’ve posted a few other Big Lebowski t-shirts because I love the movie. I’m now happy to add this one to that list, because it is quite, quite funny. If you’re familiar with the movie, you know that one of the most well-known/repeated phrases is “The Dude Abides“. Therefore, it is quite possible that were The Dude to tweet, he would end many of them with the hashtag #Abiding. That is why this shirt is funny. It’s something that typically only fans of the movie will get, and I think that is one of the characteristics that makes a great movie t-shirt.
If you’re #abiding as well, you can pick up this design for $20CDN (Canadian Dollars? What?!?!??!) from Cowbell Tees. It’s printed on Alstyle 1301 t-shirts.
I think I’ve expressed my love for Insound’s awesome collection of band t-shirts in the past. They sell a selection of great designs from some really great bands. As such, I wanted to notify you about two new developments in the area of Insound’s music t-shirts. First, Insound has just released a great new batch of shirts, including designs for bands like Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, Passion Pit, The National, Daft Punk, Dinosaur J.R., and a bunch of other awesome bands.
In case these new releases aren’t cool enough by themselves (which they are), Insound is also offering 20% off all the new t-shirt designs for a limited time. With the discount, the designs only cost $15.99 (although there are two exceptions). I think that’s a pretty attractive price for some awesome band shirts. Head over to Insound’s new release page to see all the designs. We’ve also got an Insound promo code which I think is still good for an additional 10% off.
P.S. I give so much love to band shirts because I like supporting the bands. It’s my little way of combining my love of graphic t-shirts with my desire to support the bands that I enjoy on a regular basis.
If you’ve read my blog for a decent amount of time, you probably know that I am a huge Arrested Development fan. As such, when a t-shirt company that I already really like makes an Arrested Development shirt, I, well, get a little giddy. This shirt, Bluth Family Crest, from 604 Republic caused such giddiness in me.
This shirt is just a treasure trove of little references that Arrested Development fans will love. The chicken, the bananas, the hook, and so much more are all there. It’s just a great shirt, and it does Arrested Development, one of the best written (and just best) TV shows, justice.
P.S. Cross your fingers and pray that the Arrested Development movie really does happen, and, more importantly, that it maintains the incredible quality of the show.
So…I just saw Hangover 2 last night. I thought it was pretty dang funny, especially the first half. I don’t think it’s quite as good as the first one–but still, very funny. I appreciate how they were brash and unabashed about the sequel following the exact same format as the first Hangover. This early acceptance allowed me to just sit back and enjoy the show. It’s the same formula, but it’s a good formula, and it’s funny, so I’m a fan.
When watching the movie, my friends and I immediately laughed when we saw Allen’s (Zach Galifianakis’) t-shirt. You can imagine how happy I was to get home, check my email, and see that someone was already selling Allen’s t-shirt. It’s just a ridiculous shirt, especially when worn by Zach (see above). These are one of my favorite type of movie shirts–shirts that aren’t just a logo, but rather come directly from the movie.
To sum up–The Hangover 2 was funny. Allen’s shirt from the Hangover 2 was also funny. This, entitled Yellow Lab, is that shirt. You can pick this shirt up for $18.99 at Crazy Dog T-Shirts. We also have an exclusive Crazy Dog T-Shirts coupon that will get you $5.00 off your order, making this bad boy only $13.99. I would recommend using that if you like saving money.
If you’re feeling talkative, let me know your thoughts on The Hangover 2 in the handy dandy comments below. If you haven’t seen it, I think it’s definitely worth the $8/2 hours required to check it out.
So yesterday’s megatastic implosion of the Lakers was what will, most likely, be Phil Jackson’s last game coaching in the NBA. This is sad, because Phil Jackson is one of the greatest coaches of all time. He truly is the Zen Master. This post and shirt from 80s Purple is a tribute to Phil and all his Eastern philosophy coolness.
P.S. Thanks to my man David Budimir, who has a blog about hip-hop samples, for showing me this shirt.
Community has quickly become one of my favorite TV shows (of both cancelled and active shows), so I had to post this shirt. I actually first saw this shirt on a Community writer in a behind-the-scenes clip, which caused me to instantly look it up. Starburns is a character from the show who has trimmed his sideburns to look like, well, stars. This shirt probably isn’t at all funny if you’re not familiar with the show, but…if you are a fan of the show, I hope you enjoy it. Also, if you’re not already a fan of the show, you should watch a few episodes, get hooked, and become a fan. Then you can enjoy this shirt. Their most recent episode, a paintball spaghetti western, is off the chain hilarious. You probably need to be familiar with the characters to get its full effect, though.
If you wanna pick up this Starburns shirt, you can nab it for $25.00 from the NBC Store. Show ya luv for Community!
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.
