Vintage Pretension from Go Ape Shirts

First, sorry for the lack of posts. Classes are ending/it’s final time so I’ve been a little swamped. Anyway…

I just got an email about the new Go Ape Shirts design, Vintage Pretension, and I’m diggin’ it. Not only is the text witty and very, very true, but the design is pretty snazzy itself. I’d go as far as to say the design is perfect for the text/concept involved. It’s very vintagy and the guy has some real steeze going on.

I can picture the conversation going on between the two of the, and that, that is a beautiful thing. I wonder what classical artist he’s going to talk about once he gets done educating the kid on Proust.

You can pick this one up for $18.00 at Go Ape Shirts.

10% Off at Local Celebrity Today (4/21) Only

Local Celebrity rarely has sales, so them announcing a coupon good for 10% off their entire store for today only is fairly big/cool. I also liked the new shirt they released today (it’s witty), so there’s kind of a two part reason for this post.

To save the 10% use code “HOOKMEUP421″ at checkout. It’s valid today only. You can save 5% every day by checking out our coupon page for Local Celebrity.

Beautiful/Decay Launches Spring 2010 Line

Beautiful/Decay, who I love but haven’t posted about in awhile, have just launched their Spring 2010 line! I’m really happy about this–part of the reason I hadn’t posted in awhile was because I hadn’t heard from them in an equally long while. That changed today. I really like the Spring 2010 Line. There are just so many gems in there. I’ve picked five of my favorites (read more to see them all), but I could have easily picked so many more.

You can go checkout their sweet lookbook (shot on the roof of their offices in downtown L.A.), or just head directly to the store and buy some shirts. Enjoy.

Earth Day Sale at Threadless

All this week, every nature shirt at Threadless is on sale for $12 in honor of the upcoming Earth Day. However, that’s not what’s really cool. What’s really cool is that for every order (no matter if it’s nature themed or not) they’re giving $1 to the Plant a Billion Trees cause (pretty self explanatory there). Get some cool shirts on the cheap, and plant some trees. That’s important, because trees are awesome. They give us oxygen, look pretty, and can be climbed–pretty cool.

I’ll try to get a working coupon up soon. Also, I’ll sell a $100 Threadless gift certificate for $67 to the first person who emails me. I think that’s a pretty slick deal.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tales of the Jazz Age Shirt from Out of Print Clothing

F. Scott Fitzgerald is one my top three favorite authors (and as I think about it now, maybe even my favorite…est). I recently got a huge book of his short stories which has only cemented my love for him even more. I’m only about halfway through, but the insight he has into humans and relationships and life in general is just astounding. I connect with his stories so much, and I believe that is what truly makes great literature.

A lot of the short stories in the huge anthology I bought come from Tales of the Jazz Age (which includes The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), so this shirt is very applicable for me right now. I also just think the design looks vintage and cool, and I really like the concept behind Out of Print Clothing, so I’m happy to support them.

You can pick this one up for $28.00 at Out of Print Clothing. Also, for each shirt they sell, Out of Print Clothing will donate one book to communities in Africa through their partner, Books for Africa. That’s awesome.

420 (IV:XX) Shirt from T-Shirt Hell–TorsoPants

T-Shirt Hell

I apologize for posting two shirts from T-Shirt Hell (the TorsoPants section! Not the main one) in a row–that’s lame and makes me look like an affiliate pusher (which I never do). But… I looked down at my computer clock and saw the date read 4/20. Then I was searching around all of TorsoPants shirts, and I saw this awesome roman numerals 4/20 shirt. Put those two together, and you get this post.

I’m just on a roll. Yesterday, I posted the Dogfish Head shirt, and today I’m posting a very applicable 420 shirt. I hope people don’t get the wrong impression. I mean, geez, I didn’t even think about how 4/20 was coming up/arrived until 10 minutes ago.

But anyway, you can pick this one up for $19.00 at T-Shirt Hell. And, we’ve got coupons for T-Shirt Hell as I posted before.

Make Lemonade from T-Shirt Hell

I never thought I would see this day…I like a shirt from T-Shirt Hell. And not just like as in “oh, this shirt is ok, maybe I’ll post it”, but as full-blown, “hey, i like this shirt, I want to post it.” That’s big folks.

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m kind of a health nut. I mean, I don’t fret over what I eat, I just try to eat things that are real and haven’t been processed, eg. good meat, a lot of vegetables, and lots of fruits (and not much outside that). I think it’s scary how these weird chemicals have become so pervasive in our food supply. I don’t think anyone knows where it’s going to take us. This shirt captures that, because, let’s be honest, when’s the last time you actually saw lemons as the one primary ingredient of lemonade?

You can grab this one for $19.00 at T-Shirt Hell. And yeah, we have a T-Shirt Hell coupon page. I never thought I’d be linking to it from the main page, but the world is a crazy place. Oops, gotta go. I just saw a pig fly by my window.

**After some digging, it appears that this may be from the TorsoPants line (which I like) and not from the main T-Shirt Hell line. Still, I’m keeping my wonder, because it’s still a link to T-Shirt Hell. Also, I didn’t know you could still buy TorsoPants shirts–that’s awesome! Expect more posts about those in the future.

Dogfish Head Brewery Shirt

I’m only 19, so I would never dream of consuming an alcoholic beverage such as beer, however, if I did have such aspirations, you can bet my first choice would be Dogfish Head. They’re a microbrewery from Delaware, and they are the shit (hypothetically). Their beers sound so unique and tasty, not to mention often high on the alcoholic content (9-10% is pretty common with them). One that I really liked reading about was Midas Touch. It sounds pretty amazingly delicious.

This is another one of those posts where I use t-shirts to talk about things I like that are completely unrelated to t-shirts. Yet, I think the Dogfish Head logo is pretty cool, and I would be happy to wear it on a shirt, so maybe you agree with me (or maybe you just like beer). Check out their site to buy the shirt, get better pictures, and read about their brews.

7 Monty Python and the Holy Grail Shirts — Movie Monday

What can I say about Monty Python and the Holy Grail other than that it is undoubtedly one of the kings of the comedy world. I feel like 99% of people (or maybe just youth) can quote at least one line from this movie. Whether it be a knight fighting through numerous flesh wounds, or a peasant talking politics, this movie has it all. It’s a classic, and it’s awesome, and I’m going to post a bunch of shirts dealing with it. I hope you enjoy. Here’s today’s installment of Movie Mondays–Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

1) It’s a simple matter of weight ratios from Wear Your Beer. Hilarious. We’ve got Wear Your Beer coupons if you’d like to save some money.

2) Trojan Rabbit from 80s Tees. You can save with a coupon for 80s Tees.

3) Killer Rabbit from 80s Tees. The picture on the left is the front of the shirt and it reads “It’s just an ordinary rabbit, isn’t it?”. They couldn’t have been further from the truth, as the back of the shirt indicates.
