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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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)).
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.
I saw this shirt on Coty’s favorite shirts of 2010 list and I had to post it up here. It’s just super goofy, and I like that a lot. Green on purple looks cool, and maybe the rhino is getting a little Deer Hunter type revenge on poachers (so good for him!).
Sharp Shirter has a few quirky shirts like this; all of which come off well in my opinion. If you’re interested, you can pick it up for $22.00 at Sharp Shirter. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks.
It’s New Years, once again giving everyone an excellent excuse to drink too much champagne and go just a bit crazy (and there’s no better way to go crazy than releasing a few of your more hedonistic tendencies tonight). I like this shirt because I like the idea of a slightly-tweaked hedonism (even though it’s acquired a nasty, negative connotation in society), and I like the simplicity.
Also, I always include Headline Shirts own description of the shirt, because they’re humorous and well written. Enjoy:
Well, well, well. Looks like we got ourselves a card-carrying member of the Hedonist Party! And speaking of party, why aren’t we having one right now? If it feels good, do it — that’s my philosophy! Let’s start with a few words on Hedonism.
Webster’s defines hedonism as the doctrine that pleasure is the sole good in life. The name derives from the Greek word for “delight.” The philosopher Democritus is generally credited with–
Oh my God — snore! What is this, school? We should be eating filet mingon in shorts, or having sex while parasailing or something. This ain’t exactly cuttin’ it for me so I’m out. If anyone needs me, I’ll be on a waterslide at a resort in Jamaica — not giving a crap about anything outside of my utopian acropolis. Peace!
In contrast to Busted Tees’ usual Midnight Madness sales, they’re offering up a Midday Madness sale today. The sale goes for 12 hours from 12pm noon (so it’s already started) to midnight tonight. For the sale, all their tees can be yours for just $15. In order to get the discount, just use the code “GOODBYEXMAS”. Unfortunately, this means you can’t use one of our usual coupons, but if you miss the sale, that’s always an option. Cheers everyone! Enjoy some post-Christmas shopping.
