I’ve unfortunately not had Internet for the better part of the past week, leaving me unable to post even though I actually had time to do posting. But…I’m moved into my new apartment in Philadelphia, have working Internet, and am ready to get going. So let’s go…
These offerings come from Insound. They’ve made 10 shirts (and 10 posters) for 10 bands that had a significant impact on music in 2010. I love music (look how unique I am!), so I’m pretty embracing of such motivation. The shirts come from Beach House, Neon Indian, Liars, Titus Andronicus, Broken Social Scene, Girls, Mountain Goats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and Owen Pallet.
All the designs incredibly well done, and Sonnenzimmer’s (the artist/s) style is pretty dang good. I’ve posted four of the designs from some of my favorite bands on the list, but you should check all 10 of them out. They’ll run you $22.00 over at Insound and they’re printed on American Apparel. The posters are also awesome. Check them too.
If you regularly read my blog (which is awesome!), you know I love Arrested Development, and the many shirts that deal with Arrest Development. I want to do a huge list of all the great AD shirts, but until then, here’s two more awesome ones to fill the void.
First, we have Gene Parmesan: Private Eye, from Powerup Apparel (who made that awesome Chareth Cutestory shirt I linked to above). Gene Parmesan is perhaps the greatest private eye ever, and you can support his business with this shirt. It’s funny. Pick it up for $22 at Powerup Apparel.
The next one is from Busted Tees, an omnipresent player in the funny TV/movie shirt genre. It features the upcoming corporation of Gobias Industries, a partnership between Gob, the magician, and Tobias, the world’s first analrapist. I love the episode this shirt is based on, and I love this shirt too. You can pick it up for $20 at Busted Tees. We’ve also got Busted Tees coupons for you to save some of your precious money.
If anyone knows of more quality Arrested Development shirts, let me know so I can feature them in that big post I’m writing. Danke!
I’m a big fan of pigeons, especially those ballsy ones that aren’t afraid to stare you down in the middle of the street. Pigeons take on that aggressive air so common with city dwellers, and that is awesome.
Consequently, I dig this shirt from Random Objects. The pigeon staring out from his origami counterpart is quite piercing…in a pigeony kind of way.
You can pick this up for $20.00 at Random Objects. It’s printed on American Apparel 2001 tees, a quality choice.
I dig well done, interesting tie-dye shirts, which consequently leads to me liking B’s Tees very much. You can choose your blank shirt and colors and have B make you a shirt from scratch, or you can pick from one of her individually number and signed designs (none of those tie-dye mills who crank out huge batches of the exact same design).
The customization is a cool touch, and her designs are really interesting and well done. I’ve grabbed just a few samples to post here, but you should check them all out.
You can visit B’s Tees by going here. Prices start at $17.00.
I’ve posted this shirt before, but as Shark Week has rolled around again, I figured it was time to remind everyone. Plus, Jon has provided a coupon and a contest, so that’s worth knowing about. Let’s get down to business.
First, you can win a free “Live Every Week Like it’s Shark Week” shirt for every day that Shark Week is on. Just go here to find out the details. Second, if you don’t feel like relying on chance, you can buy the shirt yourself and use code “SHARKWEEK” for 10% off.
Go check out the shirt. I love Shark Week, I love 30 Rock, and I love this shirt (and you should too).
There are so many awesome things going on in this shirt (most of which are directly referenced in the very apt title). I’ve never been to Portland, but it seems pretty spot on from what I’ve heard. Headbands, big hairy beards, and fixed gear bikes are where it’s at.
Anyway, this shirt from Threadless’ Artist Shoppe made me laugh uproariously, and is pretty damn witty to add to that. You can pick it up for $22.00. I just wish I could use my STPs on it.
P.S. I hope no one thinks I’m insulting Portland. I really want to visit there as soon as possible. And Seattle. I wouldn’t mind adding San Francisco and Berkeley to that list too, actually.
I can’t think of anything to write about this shirt. I mean, it’s a huge walrus on a shirt–what do you say? I will offer that I like the grey version the most (by far). Other than that I’m pretty much typing to add word count to this post, because I feel weird “writing” a post with less than fifty words. I just passed fifty? Sweet, thanks for letting me know. I’m done.
Check it out at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. It’ll cost you $28.00
P.S. I really do dig this shirt despite not having anything (n.e.thing) to say about it.
P.P.S. This shirt is a tribute to the music blog entitled “The Walrus”, which I previously haven’t read, but I’m going to start now.
P.P.P.S. This post has 127 words (not counting this last P.P.P.S.)
I’m sad to announce that Vintage Vantage, one of my favorite tee companies, will be closing up shop for good. After 9 years of selling some awesome and comfortable shirts, they will be done. It’s a sad day.
I guess some good does come out of it though: They have to clean out all their stock, which means every shirt of theirs is on sale for $9.50. That’s a bargain.
Go over and check out the stuff. Help them close with a bang, rather than the dreaded whimper.
