My house has been engaging in quite a bit of Mario related action this semester, whether that be the Mario series itself, or Super Smash Bros. When smashing, Mario is one of my go to characters, as he’s a certified bad-ass. Thus, you can see why I was quite excited when I got an email from Sebastion of 604 Republic about one of their newest releases, Retired Plumber.
The shirt is damn near perfect. The concept, an old and retired Mario, is top-notch, and the execution of the design doesn’t disappoint. He looks just how I would picture Mario to look after spending his younger years gallivanting around jumping shells and smashing bricks. He’s certainly earned all those medals. To finish up my little string of praise, I also like how much his red hat pops out, it reminds me a bit of the red hat in the Life Aquatic shirt I posted awhile ago.
I love this design, and I hope you do too. If you fulfill my hopes, you can go buy it for $18.95 at 604 Republic, who have some more great designs which will be featured soon.
Who all’s going to the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tonight? I’m not, but I know a bunch of people who are. I think it’s going to be pretty sweet when I eventually see it. To commemorate the event, I’m posting up a few new Harry Potter designs which have been emailed to me. Note that this is not supposed to be a list or favorites by any means, but rather the newest shirts from NerdyShirts in the Harry Potter niche, which will soon be followed by a more in-depth post designed to satisfy your wizarding needs. So yeah, here’s two shirts I’ve been emailed about recently as a sort pre-mature, celebratory, “road paving for the big post”y, thing.
A shirt for all you die-hard fans who have been with Harry from the start.
Another design for those who are the closest of friends with Mr. Harry Potter.
So yes, expect a much larger list of designs in the near future, and I did post up a few Harry Potter shirts previously if you wanna go check those out.
Have fun tonight everyone, no matter what you may be doing!
P.S. We’ve also got a Nerdy Shirts coupon going if you wanna pick up one of these shirts. It should be good for 10% off your order.
This shirt…I don’t know. Help me out. I can’t describe it…but I like it. Is there some symbolism (or symbology as much of America would say) of the lion and the squid that I’m missing? Or is it just that quirkily awesome? To be honest, I don’t care. I like it, and it reminds me of Sharp Shirter’s Haymaker shirt which I could’ve sworn I’d previously posted about, but am unable to find (meaning that I’ll be posting about it soon, because I love that design).
Tell me your thoughts if you care to in the comments section; or maybe you want to Facebook or tweet about it though our new handy set of social networking icons at the bottom of this post. It’s up to you to decide! The power lies solely, and squarely, in your hands.
You can pick this shirt up for $22.00 at Sharp Shirter. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks.
Kid Cudi is the bomb diggity…at least when he was rapping. I’m not sure how I feel about his newly announced decision to move into the rock genre and forsake his awesome, awesome rap roots, but I guess we’ll see how it goes. If you didn’t know who Kid Cudi was before reading this post, I recommend you check him out, because he’s got a pretty solid body of work. I’ll post a video of one of his songs below to facilitate the aforementioned delving into the musical world of Cudi.
I also love this shirt. It’s just a great portrait. I love how the black looks on the blue and how much Cudi’s glasses pop out. I’m not sure if Cudi is anywhere near the recognizability required for a majority of people to know who’s on the shirt, but I kind of like that. It gives the shirt a bit of mystery, and “Who’s that on your shirt?” is one of the best ways to start a conversation with new and unknown people
You can pick this one up for $21.00 at The Cooler Collective, who have some great shirts. I’m not entirely sure, but I think they might use American Apparel blanks (at least that’s what the shirt mock-ups lead me to believe).
The “It’s Only a Flesh Wound” scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail is pure, untarnished, 24-karat gold. This design takes that unfortunate knight, throws him on a bicycle, and makes a pretty damn funny t-shirt out of it. The voting is currently closed (it got a 2.99 out of 5), but I’m writing about it so that when it eventually becomes printed (which it should), you will already have this knowledge primed in your minds and be ready to click the “add to cart” button right away.
Go check out the design page at Threadless and read some comments. I also wrote about seven other Monty Python shirts awhile back if you like the movie and wanna check that post out. Maybe you wanna tell your friends about it too and splash that baby all over Facebook–who knows.
Ahhh alcohol, how great you are at instilling courage in men (and the women too!). You make me not bat a lash at raucously yelling out whatever idiotic point of view I’m ruminating on, amongst many others things, and for that I love thee.
But seriously, I really do like ReThink Clothing’s newest release, Liquid Courage. I like the vintage styling, and I dig the dude chillin’ with the top-hat. I would love to get my hands on some ReThink Premium Draft Beer.
While they’re not currently selling the beer, you can pick up the shirt for $16.99 at their store. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks in case you’re wondering.
This shirt made me chuckle, but also instilled a bit of fear in me due to the large size of Cheney’s mug on the front of the shirt. It’s good life advice though–just don’t be a dick. People tend to not like you if you shoot them in the face with a shotgun, or are a crooked old politician (or just a dick in general).
As with all Print Liberation shirts, the font is great, and the colors are minimal. You can pick it up for $18.00 at Print Liberation. You’ll get it just in time for the elections. It’s also printed on an American Apparel blank.
I need to try to get down to Print Liberation’s brick and mortar store now that I’m in Philadelphia–I imagine it would be pretty cool.
I know it’s been awhile since my last post, and for that I apologize, and shamelessly blame mid-terms.
I’m happy to submit this relatively new release from RandR though. I love how they’ve managed to incorporate their name, but at the same time it’s so unobtrusive that I didn’t even notice it until I looked closer at the shirt. I think how they did the R + R just looks plain cool too, which is mainly how I feel about the design as a whole. It just goes well together, and grey and white always looks cool.
You can pick it up for $25 at RandR. It’s printed on an American Apparel V-neck, which is kind of unique, as you don’t find many v-necks, nor do I post many.
This shirt was designed to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Popeye the Sailor (January 17th 1929 was the day of his “birth”), which I’m a little late on unfortunately. However, I am glad I managed to find it, because I dig it quite a bit.
I eat a very large volume of spinach, so I can appreciate and support Popeye’s inclination towards those muscle building green leave (not those green leaves). The design’s goofy, the colors are cool, and it’s available for 17.50 pounds from Regal Clothing. Go check it out, and support my spinach eating compadre.
The live performance of The Nightman Cometh was one of the best productions I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing on a DVD special feature section. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is a hilarious show. I also live in Philadelphia, and the past two days it’s been raining the entire day, illustrating the irony of the title.
I like the design of the shirt–it looks like it could be promoting a real musical to someone who didn’t get the reference, and that’s a humorous deception.
You can buy the shirt from 80′s Tees. It’s also currently on sale for only $9.99, which is a great price (only half of the original $20). Check out some Youtube hilarity of the performance below. We’ve also got some 80s Tees coupon action floating around, which will lower the price even further.
