This shirt made me laugh right away–it’s just super goofy. I don’t know how Busted Tees think up shirts like this, but I’m glad they do. The two guys fencing are actually a pretty funny image as well, when placed in the context. Are you down to fence? Because I think I’m DTF.
I also like the little slogan on the shirt page which reads, “Why are you all laughing when I say ‘sword thrust?’” It’s innuendo!
P.S. Tomorrow (March 17th) is troundup’s 4th birthday! Hooray! Expect a little post to celebrate. Nothing too special though.
I’ve talked about my love for The Big Lebowski before, and, well…that hasn’t changed. I especially dig this one because of the 8-bit graphics. It’s just awesome–I love the action shot of him bowling (which looks like it came straight from an old video game), and the closeup is pretty cool itself. It’s just a quality design, especially for the Big Lebowski aficionado.
If you’re interested, you can pick this one up for $22 at MySoti. It’s designed by the artist Jude Buffum, who makes many more of these cool 8-bit designs. He’s done designs for other Big Lebowski characters (not the proper nomenclature!), as well as Office Space and a few others. I recommend you check them out too.
If you’ve been following the news, you know how horrific the earthquake in Japan has been. It’s important to try to help those people, and that’s why I was so happy to see this offer from Goodie Two Sleeves. They will be donating 100% of their proceeds (yes, all of their profit) from March to earthquake victims in Japan. This is incredibly generous. They haven’t chosen which charity they will donate to yet, but Gabe tells me it will most likely be the Red Cross.
Go over to Goodie Two Sleeves, pick up some cool shirts, and help earthquake victims. It’s probably the easiest way to donate ever thought up.
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.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from an Etsy store, which I try to do every so often to support the tiniest of t-shirt designers (operation size wise). This one fulfills that wish by being super goofy (but in a good way) and likable.
It’s a bear playing beer pong. That’s it. As the product description notes, it will probably get you noticed at a party due to to its quirky charm (it definitely has a quirky charm in my opinion). If you wanna pick it up, you can get it for the low price of $12.99 at moblongatta’s Etsy store. It’s printed on a Tultex t-shirt.
P.S. I feel like with some accents, saying “bear” could sound like “beer”, which possibly gives another dimension to this shirt. I dunno though–I’m just brainstorming.
Are any of you readers fans of Gothic fiction? If so, you’ll probably dig this design from Shirt.Woot. It’s got the witty name of “Poe-etic”, and depicts Edgar Allan Poe’s face made up of those ravens he was ever so fond of. I definitely like this shirt–I think the name and the design itself are creative, and it surprises me that it comes from Shirt.Woot (I usually pigeonhole them as more of “geek” genre I suppose).
Head on over to Shirt.Woot if you’d like to grab this one. Don’t wait, because Shirt.Woot only sells their designs for so long. It costs $15 and I believe they still print on American Apparel.
Insound T-Shirt Sale–25% Off Lots of Music Shirts, incl. Beach House, Girls, Peter, Bjorn and John + More
Insound, an awesome online record store, is having an equally awesome sale on a bunch of band shirts–57 shirts to be exact. Every shirt on the list is discounted 25%. These aren’t just the reject shirts that need to be cleared out–there are a lot of quality designs from great bands. I’ve posted two of my favorites above (Peter Bjorn and John on the left and Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the right ), but other shirts on sale are from bands like Beach House, Blitzen Trapper, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Girls, Grizzly Bear, She and Him, Sonic Youth, Spoon, The Black Keys (x2), The Decemberists, The National, Wolf Parade, and Beirut (among others). I think most people can probably find something they like from that list.
Head on over to Insound to check out the sale. The vast majority of shirts are in the $14.00-$16.50 range. We’ve also got a page for Insound coupons to get even lower prices (although I don’t think they have any active currently).
For those who don’t know, Carl Pavano is a pitcher for the Minnesota Twins who sports a fairly powerful, Mario-like mustache (see the picture below). I always thought this whenever I saw him on TV (I’m not the only one), and that is why I love this shirt. Someone was obligated to make it, and Seventh.Ink kindly took that task upon themselves. I think the design is executed perfectly–the hat, mustache, and text is all that’s needed. It’s pretty hilarious.
This design, Super Pavario, is a shirt from Seventh.Ink’s new Spring 2011 Line. It’s definitely my favorite of the new designs. It’s currently on pre-order for $4 off the usual price (making it $20.00), and it will ship on March, 11th. It’s printed on American Apparel. Oh yeah, here’s Carl Pavano for comparison. See the Mario resemblance?
