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.
I like to imagine Shakespeare as the cocky bastard portrayed in this shirt. You can’t help but laugh at some flowery language using, cocky dude wearing that collar and rocking that hair. I also like that Headline Shirts mildly compare Shakespeare to Snoop Dogg in their usual hilarious product description, which I will now quote because it deserves everyone’s literary attention:
William Shakespeare’s Lost Sonnet
O! how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give.
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour, which doth in it live.
The canker blooms have full as deep a dye…
Hang on, cut the music for a second. Hi, reader, it’s Will Shakespeare here. You know, I don’t meant to come off as cocky, but this shit basically writes itself. I honestly don’t know what the big deal is. Do you know that I invented almost 2,000 words on my own? So I’m literally just making up words as I go. You know who else made up words on the fly? Snoop Dogg. You think history will remember him as a literary genius?
Yup, I make up a bunch of schmancy words for linguists to guffaw over, toss in a few “haths” and “doths” for the drama majors, and — BAM! — instant classic every time. Seriously, there have been entire college courses taught about stuff I basically wrote on the crapper. Tellin’ you, this shit writes itself.
I dig it. You can pick it up on sale right now for $15.00 at Headline Shirts. It’s down from the usual price of $19.00 because it’s their newest release, and it’s printed on a 100% cotton 30/1 blank.
Eleven NBA Championships don’t lie–Phil Jackson has got to be the greatest coach ever. More importantly though, he seems like a legitimately cool person. Part of his personality that I like is his interest in Eastern philosophy, which has earned him the nickname Zen Master (hence the name of the shirt).
I also dig the design (well…picture), in addition to the subject content. I like how dark everything is, and I think Phil looks quite cool in this shot from his playing days at the Knicks.
Zen Master comes from Frank and Jan’s newest set of designs and can be yours for the low price of just $24.00 (I swear I’m not an infomercial writer). Buy this shirt, and support the Lakers next year as they steamroll the Heat, among others.
Hunter S. Thompson is an unequivocal badass. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas straight through in one sitting because of this fact. If you want a story of drug filled fun and mayhem I recommend you do the same.
I dig this shirt from LTD Tee because it’s simple, but still manages to capture Mr. Thompson. The hair, the glasses, the cigarette, it’s all him. Cloxboy (the artist) did a great job on this one.
You can pick it up for $26.99 at LTD Tee. With that $26.99, you get, in addition to the shirt, an 8×10 art print, a certificate of authenticity, some stickers, and a custom box. Pretty cool.
You can also use the coupon code “troundup” for 20% off your order, bringing it down to $21.59. A dedicated coupon page for LTD Tee will be coming soon.
Go Ape Shirts have just released their newest shirt, designed by the well known artist Olly Moss. I can’t really think of a word or a phrase that could accurately encapsulate everything about this shirt. So…just take it at face value–it’s Robocop…crossing the alps…on a unicorn, and I dig it.
You can pick it up for $20.00 at Go Ape Shirts. It’s printed on American Apparel.
Go Ape Shirts have also reprinted Hip Hop Hibernation, which remains one of my favorite shirt designs. It’s in the original moss color, as well as an all new silver edition.
