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!
Insound, a popular purveyor of vinyl and music t-shirts whom I love, is offering 20% off their exclusive line of band shirts. I’ve posted about this line before, and the shirts really are quite cool. The designs are all unique to Insound and feature a bunch of bands across genres, both popular and indie. A few examples are The Decemberists, Girls, Beach House, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and a bunch more. As the post title hints at, Insound is offering 20% off this entire line of shirts. I highly recommend you check them out, because the shirts are awesome and the prices are good (especially with the sale). We’ve also got an Insound promo code which will give you 10% off your entire order. The coupon is good until 5/20/11.
With the sale price, the shirts are only $16.00 each ($14.40 with our coupon). Go check them out at the Insound store. Hell, pick up some vinyl while you’re there too.
So, after two straight all-nighters and a generally hellish (school work wise) weekend, I am back and ready to get posting. All I have is a few simple tests left–the research papers are all behind me. I thought I would start my summer with a shirt I’ve been wanting to write about for a long time–The Invisible Man from Miles to Go Clothing. Shirt is just sweet. H.G. Wells is cool and all, but I find myself thinking more about the Three Stooges when I look at this shirt. Whichever connection you make, it’s still pretty cool. I also love that he’s smoking a pipe, ’cause pipes are sweet.
You can buy this shirt for $25.00 at Miles to Go’s store. It’s printed on an American Apparel coffee colored tri-blend tee…so it’s incredibly comfortable. Enjoy, and be ready for a much more regular posting schedule.
Blood is the New Black is really hit or miss for me. I love some of their stuff, and also have no interest in a bunch of other stuff. My feelings toward this shirt are more to the positive side. It’s goofy–a metal band made up of spike wearing bears? Where do I buy my ticket? But seriously, this shirt is super quirky, yet it works for me. I dig it.
You can pick this shirt up for $20.00 at Blood is the New Black, which is a pretty cheap price for them. If you don’t have my strange interests in weird animal shirts, you might hate this design–sorry!
**Also, if you’ve emailed me recently at my troundup email/contact form I may not have gotten it. I forgot to switch the email address over when changing servers, so those emails might have fallen through the crack. Please resend!
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.
So I’ve been talking to Seth from Palmercash for a while about a coupon, and today those talks were finally successful! I have caught the elusive 10% off coupon for Palmercash, a beast that hasn’t been seen for months upon months. Kidding and weird writing aside, the code is good for 10% off your entire order. You can find the code below, or use our permanent Palmercash coupon page.
10% Off Your Order at Palmercash: [coupon code="palmercash1" /]. Click to copy & go.
This coupon comes just in time to take advantage of their new collaboration with surf photographer Sean Davey. Or, you can just buy one of their many other great designs. So yeah, I’m happy about this one. Hopefully it saves ya’ll some money.
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).
This shirt is sold out, so I guess I’m being a bit of a tease by posting it. I’m sorry–I hope you’ll forgive me. I like this shirt too much not to post it. It answers the question: what are hipsters going to look like when they grow up? I actually don’t know if it’s just referencing hipsters (the tattoos confuse me), but I’d like to think so. The depiction is just so spot on and goofy. Hell yeah, Sympathy For The Unusual!
If this shirt ever comes back in stock, you can pick it up for 25 Euro from their store. Unfortunately, I doubt that will ever happen because this design was part of their S/S 2010 collection.
