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.
T-Shirt Contest just released their newest shirt, which features an awesome mashup of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and Pikachu from Pokemon. Sounds like odd subject matter, right? I guess, but it’s goofily awesome. Check it out:
I still remember playing Pokemon on my Gameboy Color when I was a wee lad, so I’ll always have a soft spot for such subject matter. Pikachu just has that inherent magnetism, so when he gets put on a shirt, people like it. You can buy Vitruvian Mon for only $12.00 over at T-Shirt Contest. Tom Ledin is the actual artist for this t-shirt, and he resides out in San Francisco.
I wrote up a list of my favorite Jeremy Lin t-shirts a few days ago. There were some great designs on that list. This one might be my favorite, though. It comes from Skreened and is called “TO LINFINITY AND BEYOND”. Sounds pretty awesome right? Yeah it does. Check it out:
This design rules. It’s a great Lin pun, and anything that incorporates Toy Story gets some bonus points. I also dig that they used his number in the Linfinity part of the shirt. Brilliant design, and kudos to whomever came up with it on Skreened. You can buy it at the Skreened store. They allow you to pick the color and type of shirt you’d like it printed on (which affects the price). If you bought it as pictured, it would cost $25.99 and would be printed on a white American Apparel shirt. That’s a small price to pay for such an an awesome shirt, especially if you’re one of those Knicks fans.
I came across these two awesome Community t-shirts from Skreened a few days ago, and I was getting ready to post them up on troundup. Before I could do that, though, I got the great news that Community is coming back from their hiatus and will return to NBC on March 15th. I was ecstatic, as I love the show. I’d like to implore you all to watch the show, so that it can get the six seasons and a movie that it deserves (let’s not have another Arrested Development here…). I guess to sum things up…Community=Coming Back=Awesome. Here are the shirts:
This one requires you to have watched the show, otherwise it’s not funny at all, so sorry if that’s not you. If you’ve seen the show, it’s a very clever design, though uneccesary given the good news of Community’s return. For the non-viewers, to Britta something means “to make a mistake,” and is named after one of the show’s characters.
This next t-shirt is a logo for Greendale and their politically correct mascot, the Human Being. I actually own this shirt now, and will go around celebrating the Human Beings, especially now that they will be back on air for at least 13 more episodes.
So yeah, if you haven’t seen Community, now is your chance to catch up. You really have to watch from the beginning to realize the true hilarity of the show. You can watch every single episode on Hulu Plus, so there’s no excuse not to (well, I guess time…).
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 just saw this Evian commercial while I was watching some Hulu and I had to share it with everyone. It’s just an absolutely awesome use of t-shirts. I’ve seen some cool stop-motion stuff involving t-shirts before, but this is probably my favorite. Check it out:
While I’m not sure why the body is a baby (it’s a little odd), I think it’s awesome. The level of detail in it is mind-boggling–like when the baby/person jumps up…how do they do that?!? Anyway, this isn’t a t-shirt for sale or anything, but I got a kick out of it, so hopefully you did too. If not, I apologize for wasting a minute of your life! Also, I recommend you just buy a water bottle and a Brita filter rather than buying bottled water, but to each their own I suppose.
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.
