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.
Yellow Bird Project is a t-shirt website with an amazing concept–one of my favorite concepts, to be exact. First, Yellow Bird Project reaches out to a musical artist, Beach House in this case. The musical artist, Beach House, then designs a t-shirt to be sold on the Yellow Bird Project website. Pretty cool so far, right? It gets better though–Yellow Bird Project then donates the proceeds from the t-shirt to various charity projects. This is an incredible concept–you get music, art, t-shirts, and charity all combined in one cool site. The charity being donated to for this shirt is House of Ruth, a non-profit which helps victims of domestic abuse.
As I’ve mentioned, the musical artist who designed this shirt is Beach House, who are a really cool dream pop (love that label…) partnership from Baltimore. You should check them out–Used to Be is a particularly good song in my opinion. They’re also pretty good artists, as I legitimately like this crazy, pastel-colored trip of a house. You can pick this design up for $25.00 from Yellow Bird Project. It’s printed on American Apparel, and be sure to remember that the proceeds go to charity, which is a great thing.
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an actual t-shirt from Threadless, but this one was just so quirkily hilarious that I had to post it. This shirt, entitled Retold with Unicorns, quite obviously features two unicorns fighting out the Star Wars storyline with horn-lightsabers. I am unsure where the inspiration for this t-shirt came from, but I will say that I am glad RicoMambo and Threadless were able to get this printed. It’s just straight up ridiculous (in a good way). Also, if you look at the design in detail, the Darth Vader styling on the black unicorn is hilarious.
If you also find this shirt oddly enticing, you can pick it up for only $15.00 from Threadless. We’ve also got a Threadless coupon page, although I don’t think any of them are active at the time of this posting. Furthermore, Threadless is currently running a promotion where, if you rate 100 designs, they will donate $1.00 to Unicef. So basically, you can go check out awesome, potential Threadless designs, and also help out people in need. That’s a winning combination right there. Go score some designs–100 doesn’t really take that long at all.
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.
This new release from Lola Camisetas elicited a slight chuckle from me upon my opening of the email. It is a very alternative take on the Batman series’ Joker. I have to say though, this panda isn’t quite as scary. He’s like the goofy version of the Joker. Am I wrong to naturally associate goofiness with pandas? That’s just how I view them.
Anyway, I like this shirt. It’s quirky and goofy–two qualities I find attractive in t-shirts. You can pick it up on sale for 13.95 Euros from the Lola Camisetas store. I think the discounted price is only good for the next week.
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.
Welcome to the Rapture everyone (sic)! We still have a little bit of time for Internet browsing before things begin, so I thought I would share this shirt with you. It’s a pretty funny shirt. This shirt comes from Print Liberation, who are the same people who made that awesome I Survived the Bush Administration t-shirt. Well, I think the Rapture is a little more dangerous than the Bush administration (a little…). Thus, this shirt is instantly more hardcore. Also, the fact that God is reaching down like some giant, spiritual claw machine game is hilarious. I think a giant hand reaching down is actually the scientific community’s conclusion of what the Rapture will look like (wait…that doesn’t make sense, does it?). As usual with Print Liberation, the font is also cooool.
If us non-believers haven’t been thrust into our fiery hell by tomorrow, then you should pick up this shirt. Show the world that you survived the Rapture, and that you’re damn proud of it. I Survived Judgment Day is printed on American Apparel and costs $18.00 over at Print Liberation. This is one of my favorite shirts in a long time, and I will definitely be buying it. Since I’m in Philadelphia, I can even go directly to the Print Liberation store and pick it up and tell them how much they rock for making this shirt.
Enjoy your non-hell life while you still have it!
Before I even mention anything about this design, I want to say that I really like the concept behind A Year of Tees. I don’t think I really need to explain it–it’s just a t-shirt a day for an entire year (365 designs). Very cool, and very taxing to continue pumping out quality designs. Yet, the people behind A Year of Tees seem to be up to the challenge–I’m a big fan of most of their designs.
So, let’s move to the featured design from April 4th: 2 Fried Eggs. The design is very simple. It is very much what the title says it is. Yet, I think it comes out quite cool looking. The yellow on white on black is attractive, and I think it gains power from its simplicity. Oh, and, for the immature of us, it kind of looks like boobs (lol!).
Even though it’s nothing complex, I really like this design (and not ’cause of the boobs thing). You can pick up 2 Fried Eggs for $26.00 from A Year of Tees. Check out their other designs as well, because some of them are really cool.
I apologize for the back-to-back posts about t-shirt sales. But…both these sales are great discounts from popular t-shirt companies, so I felt compelled to share them with you.
So yeah, Threadless’ Camp Wannatee Summer Sale just went live earlier today. During the sale, which expires 5/18 (Wednesday), all Threadless shirts are only $12.00. This isn’t quite as good a deal as their $10.00 sales, but it’s dang close. Close enough that I don’t even care. $12.00 Threadless shirts are the best kinds of shirts. That’s all–head over to Threadless to shop the sale. We’ve also got a Threadless coupon, although I think they have disabled all coupons during the sale. It’s worth trying though.
Expect a return to your regularly scheduled non-sale t-shirt blogging soon.
