For those who don’t know, Carl Pavano is a pitcher for the Minnesota Twins who sports a fairly powerful, Mario-like mustache (see the picture below). I always thought this whenever I saw him on TV (I’m not the only one), and that is why I love this shirt. Someone was obligated to make it, and Seventh.Ink kindly took that task upon themselves. I think the design is executed perfectly–the hat, mustache, and text is all that’s needed. It’s pretty hilarious.
This design, Super Pavario, is a shirt from Seventh.Ink’s new Spring 2011 Line. It’s definitely my favorite of the new designs. It’s currently on pre-order for $4 off the usual price (making it $20.00), and it will ship on March, 11th. It’s printed on American Apparel. Oh yeah, here’s Carl Pavano for comparison. See the Mario resemblance?
So…I never thought I would do this, but I’m about to post a shirt from the often maligned T-Shirt Hell. I like some of their Torsopants designs (which I’ve posted about before), but this is the first, and odds are, the last, design I have ever posted from the main T-Shirt Hell line. All that negative stuff being said…I really like this shirt. The three people depicted, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, are stooges, and I’ll leave it at that because I don’t want to get too political. The shirt is just legitimately funny.
Also, Glenn Beck insulted Philadelphia with some completely ridiculous statements, so I gotta get my jab back. In case you’re not familiar with Philadelphia, the City Hall area is incredibly safe, and I’ve frequently walked around the area after 10pm. Glenn was just angry that Philadelphia didn’t want to listen to his radio show anymore.
If you wanna pick this shirt up, you can buy it for $20 at T-Shirt Hell. We’ve also got coupons for T-Shirt Hell to hopefully save you some money. Lemme know if you hate me for posting a shirt mocking Glenn and company!
It’s almost Saint Patty’s Day–that magical time of the year when it’s almost socially acceptable to get black out drunk in public (depends on your area I suppose). So I thought I’d celebrate by posting this awesome shirt from Married to the Sea, which, if you order soon, you’ll be able to proudly wear on Saint Patty’s Day (or State Patty’s Day for all you Penn Staters, who I might see next weekend!). In case you can’t see, the shirt reads “It’s Mother-Fucking Booze Time” with some barrels and wine bottles surrounding. It’s clear and to the point, and guaranteed to make drunk revelers love you.
Married to the Sea is a hilarious web-comic which re-purposes old images to make their comic. I recommend you check out the comic itself, because their t-shirts are only half the story. If you wanna pick this up, head to their store. It’ll cost $17.00 (with discounts if you purchase multiple shirts) and is printed on Gildan for the guys and Bella for the girls.
This design is straight up goofy. You’ve got a green tusked walrus sporting the biggest of power mustaches and…wait, nope, that’s all the relevant information. I almost feel like he should be wearing a monocle to complete the look. Still, I have no second-thoughts in saying that I’m a huge fan of this design, even if the Walrus has misplaced his monocle.
If you’re interested in picking up this design, head on over to Fuzzy Ink (who specialize in mustached t-shirts), pull out your handy credit card, authorize a charge for $21.00, and enjoy the shirt. Oh yeah, we’ve also got a Fuzzy Ink coupon for you to save with.
P.S. I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
You didn’t think I would go the whole post without referencing the Beatles song, did you? Also, am I missing any reference (other than the general psychedelic nature of the design) to the song beyond the title? Let me know if I am!
I just got an email from Dead Bury Dead about the release of their Spring 2011 designs. I dig a bunch of these shirts, but Open Road is my definite favorite because, well, I like Jack Kerouac (and the shirt looks cool). On the Road didn’t change my life, but it’s a good book, and it opened me up to his other work which is even better in my opinion. The Subterraneans still remains one of my favorite books. I recommend you read it–once you get used to having a fifteen page paragraph it’s a great trip.
Now, about this shirt. It’s a great picture of two men walking down a road seemingly leading to infinity. I like the dark colors, and I really like the picture–it definitely has a Beat/Kerouac’ian feel to it. You can pick it up for $29.99 at Dead Bury Dead. It’s a limited edition print, so don’t dilly dally (I think there’s only like 8 for each size left). Check out the rest of the new designs as well, ’cause they’re cool.
P.S. Dead Bury Dead might have taken one of the hottest graphic t-shirt product photos I’ve ever seen (plus it’s a cool photo in general). Check it:
God damn this shirt is brilliant! I never would have thought of this shirt, which I suppose is why I write about shirts rather than make them (although that might change soon!). The ghosts are just following Pacman everywhere–now he can’t even get his social networking on without them breathing down his neck.
I’m trying to decide if the shirt would come off better if they used the actual Twitter design (for the ghosts following). I’d have to see the two side by side to make the call. That being said, I still like how they implemented it. Witty concept + good design=successful shirt in Colin’s opinion.
You can pick this one up for €16.95. Yeah, that’s right, you unfortunately have to deal with the brutality of a horrible exchange rate. I’d say it’s worth the money though.
I’d like to introduce everyone to Acorn Factory, which is one of those always cool t-shirt charities. The extra cool thing about this one is they donate 100% of their profits towards helping bring education to under-served kids. That’s a damn cool mission, and the fact that they donate all their profits is generous and awesome. Go check out their shirts and help some kids get educated. You can check out their current project on the site too.
I have a friend who plays a good deal of Tetris (yeah, I’m looking at you, Sefton), which fits half of this shirt. I don’t think, however, that he deals a lot of cocaine. I like the slogan, even though I’m not a cocaine mover myself. It’s pretty witty in my opinion. Plus, if you play Tetris and move a lot of cocaine (or even just the cocaine part) this shirt is super appropriate.
I like the combination the block’iness of the text with the actual Tetris blocks too. It looks cool.
If you wanna pick up the shirt it’ll cost you $24.95 at their store. The design appears to be printed on American Apparel.
