The Cartridge from ReThink Clothing–Nintendo Shirt

I have to be honest, growing up I was totally a Playstation 1 kid (and then XBox, and then no video games), but…that doesn’t mean I can’t dig this new shirt from ReThink Clothing. It’s a simple shirt–just a one color rendering of a Nintendo cartridge. I think it looks great though. It’s kinda nerdy, but not weird nerdy (sorry if that offends! I mean it in the most loving way).

If you want to show your love for Nintendo, you can snag this design for $16.99 at ReThink Clothing. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks (score!).

P.S. My roommates and I have a N64 hooked up to the TV in our basement, so Nintendo has finally become a part of my life.

History is Full of Dickholes Shirt from Amorphia Apparel

This shirt is layin’ some serious real talk on everyone who reads it. The more I study history, the more I realize there were a ton of dickholes throughout our past. Sad thing is we haven’t learned all that well from said dickholes (in most cases).

This shirt comes from Amorphia Apparel, which is one of my favorite companies for intelligent, yet quirky, shirts. You can pick this one up for $15.99+ at their store. I put the “+” part because they use Spreadshirt, so you’re allowed some degree of customization. $15.99 is the cheapest you can get it, but if you’re willing to pony up $22.99, you can have it on some of those super comfortable American Apparel shirts you always hear me talking about.

Rap Music Makes Me Feel Invincible Shirt from Print Liberation

Celebrations! One of my favorite designs, Rap Music Makes Me Feel Invincible, is now back in stock. I’ve posted about this shirt before, but at that point it was out of stock (because everyone was buying it because it’s so awesome).

To reiterate my earlier post, I love this shirt because of the truth of this statement. I’m listening to rap (Kanye West-Power) while writing this post, and I’ve gotta level with you…I feel like a total badass. I’m gonna shower and then go tear the night up, because I’m invincibbbbblllllllleeeeeeeeeee.

Go pick it up at Print Liberation. You won’t regret your decision. If you’re having trouble getting the motivation to shell out $22.00, listen to some rap and then go make it rain.

Lastly, I’m hoping to get out to Print Liberation’s Northern Liberties, Philadelphia store soon (maybe even this weekend) so that will be cool. Maybe I’ll tell everyone a story about it.

Bob Dylan X Beethoven Shirt from Young Lovers

Young Lovers has just released their 2011 collection, titled “Creatures of the midnight.” After browsing around, I can tell you that I’m quite enamored with it. My favorite is definitely this one: Dylan x Beethoven. Much like the title suggests, it’s an eye-catching combination portrait of Bob Dylan and Beethoven. Young Lovers’ execution of this design is top-notch–it comes off incredibly well. Like their product description tells us, it’s two incredible musical minds colliding on one shirt, and it looks great.

The design is available in either white on black, or black on white versions, and is a little pricey at $48.00.

If the price is a bit steep for you (here’s to you, college students!), Young Lovers is providing you with a great chance to win your three favorite shirts for free. All you have to do is go to their site and click the Facebook “like” button for each of the three designs you want. After that, you just have to wait until January 31st, when Young Lovers will pick five people to give three shirts each to. That’s cool!

Monster’s Brawl Shirt from Hamburger Disco

I just got an email from a new t-shirt company based out of Vancouver, Canada. With their company, they wanted to celebrate two of their favorite things: hamburgers, and disco. From this information, maybe you can infer why they’ve named themselves Hamburger Disco.

Their style reminds me a lot of Johnny Cupcakes, but obviously with different subject matter. I chose this design, Monster’s Brawl, for my first post from them because I love all the goofy things that are going on in it. I dig all the monster illustrations, and while it’s obviously a very busy shirt, I think it looks great. It’s King Kong, Godzilla and more all wrapped into one.

If you share my sentiments, you can pick up the design for $30.00 from their store. If you also like Hamburgers and Disco, you should check out the rest of their designs too.

Biggie Shirt from The Cooler Collective–Notorious B.I.G.

I posted up The Cooler Collective’s awesome Kid Cudi shirt a little while back, and now they’ve come out with another shweet offering featuring none other than Biggie Smalls. It’s in much the same style as the Cudi shirt, but goes with a white silhouette on a black shirt to mix it up a wee bit.

Notorious B.I.G. is another rapper I’m a big fan of (so unique!), so I obviously have some love for this shirt. Again, it’s a great portrait, and the imperfect nature of the whole thing makes it super cool. The Cooler Collective has a few of these rapper portraits and seem to be releasing new ones, so expect to see more on troundup in the future.

If you wanna pick this one up, head on over to their store, where you can purchase it for $21 American dollars.

Blue Horde from 604 Republic–Zombie Smurfs

Yo–zombie Smurfs are hilarious. Zombie Smurfs on a t-shirt are thus wearable hilarity, making this shirt another success from 604 Republic (the dudes who had that awesome Mario shirt).

I don’t know what happened in Smurfville (is that the proper nomenclature?) to cause such a tragic zombie outbreak, but things don’t look good for the survivors defending their mushroom house. They’re pretty well surrounded.

I think this shirt from 604 Republic is goofy and awesome, and if you agree with me you can pick it up for $19.95 from their store. You can also save 15% with a 604 Republic coupon–ain’t that dandy?

P.S. I’ve been told I look like Jake Gyllenhaal (aka Donnie Darko). So, if you want to see a funny Smurf conversation involving me, check out this clip from the movie.

Clearance Sale from Fullbleed–A Bunch of Shirts for $8.00

I’m quite a bit late on posting this (gee wiz! That’s a surprise), but I couldn’t pass up the chance at letting everyone know about super cheap shirts from one of my favorite companies out there. Fullbleed is having a clearance sale for a bunch of last pressing designs, which means you can get some awesome (90% of Fullbleed’s shirts rock–it’s not like you’re getting rejects) shirts for only $8.00.

I clicked around a bit and from what I can tell most of the designs are still in stock, although, as mentioned, I’m super late posting this. If you’re interested (and you should be), head on over to the Fullbleed store and check it out.

P.S. How about that National Championship last night? Nothing like ending the game on an incredible fluke play (although it was legal). Just throwin’ in a little sports talk, because ya know, it’s 1:20 and I have no one else to talk to. I’m glad Auburn won, because unlike most people living outside Alabama, I like Cam Newton. He smiles when he plays, which is cool in my short, parenthetical paradise of a book.

I Spoon First Dates from People Like Me

I dig this somewhat goofy, yet rather honest shirt from People Like Me! The world could use some more spooning, among a few other things. I’m not sure how it would play out on an actual first date, but I figure it’s worth a try. Maybe you’ll get some hot, steamy, spoon action.

You can pick this one up for $28.00 from People Like Me! Also, as they say in their product description…spooning can lead to forking (tehe (coy laugh)).

Teen Dream from Insound–Beach House NOT Katy Perry

A while ago I posted this idea of doing a wittily alliterative series of posts called “Music Mondays,” which would feature me posting up a shirt from one of the bands I like every Monday. I’ve decided I want to bring this back. Now it won’t necessarily be every Monday, and it might not even be on a Monday at all, but I’m going to do it. I like band shirts for two reasons: First, I get a lot of my music for free.99, so I want to at least give the band some merch money. Secondly, a lot of bands just have damn cool shirts. It’s a win-win.

The first shirt (in a while) that I want to feature is Teen Dream, a shirt for the band Beach House. This is not Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, because that came after and kind of stole the name. It’s Beach House, who has deservedly blown up with their most recent album. Favorite tracks of wine from Teen Dream include Used to Be, Take Care, and Zebra.

I think the shirt looks pretty damn cool too. A cool shirt for a cool band. You can pick the shirt up for $19.99 at Insound, which is a great company selling lots of merch/CD/vinyl. It’s printed on American Apparel 50/50 shirt. I’m happy to be able to support Insound. They did that great 10 for 10 series of shirts I posted about, which contains another awesome Beach House shirt.
