Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

Anyone here fans of Big Bang Theory? If so, you need to check out this T-Shirt from ThinkGeek.com. Playing Jan Ken Po (Japanese name of Rock Paper Scissors) is a playground stable for any kid that grows up in Hawaii. I remember fierce Jan Ken Po battles with my elementary school buddies – so intense! Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock is a version of Jan Ken Po that was invented by Sam Kass and Karen Bryla, and was featured on an episode of CBS’s hit show, Big Bang Theory. I’ve included the hilarious bit from the episode below for you to chuckle at. You can pick up this shirt from ThinkGeek for $15.99!

And just in case you were wondering how to play this version of Rock Paper Scissors, well, here you go:

Rock crushes lizard.
Scissors decapitate lizard.
Lizard eats paper.
Lizard poisons Spock.
Paper disproves Spock.
Spock vaporizes rock.
Spock bends scissors.

The Printed Mind Sneak Peak

Levi Hardeman just showed off some of the new products for the upcoming The Printed Mind line of tees and I’ve got them here for you to checkout. You might remember Levi from his previous successful venture, Word! Apparel.  From the photos it looks like The Printed Mind is going the Johnny Cupcakes route and will be parodying pop icons. The initial line already parodies the films Major League and Terminator.

This post is more a tease than anything else, since you can’t buy these guys just yet. The Printed Mind is set to launch, I believe, within the next or month so – just in time for summer. Be sure to click “more” to see ALL 7 promo shots.

Interview with Threadless Loves Green Winner Kanzaki Choi

I had the opportunity to interview Kanzaki Choi, who this week won the Threadless Loves Green Contest! Post in the comments section here what you’ve been doing to help keep the earth green and you could win the Threadless Loves Green winning design, Show Me The Vanilla Sky..Pls!! (1 winner will be randomly chosen from the pool of people that leave a comment here). Good luck and congratulations Kanzaki! 

Coty: What was your reaction when you found out that you won the Threadless Loves Green contest with your entry, Show Me The Vanilla Sky..Pls!!?

Kanzaki: It was the best moment in my life….I was crying, screaming, howling, spanking myself and finally I found it wasn’t a dream!!! Thanks Threadless and the amazing community gave me the staggering journey.

Coty: What was the inspiration behind your winning design?

Kanzaki: The bird eyes view line drawing has its thrill, it is dramatic and epic for story telling, you can find it very common in Japanese Manga. The design is a story telling approach, I try to tell the audients how do our animal friends feels while we human beings turning the planet to a furiously polluted “vanilla sky”, though they cannot say anything to complain, we should feel guilty when seeing the vanilla sky scene from their perspective. I think the bird eyes view is perfect to deliver that kind of impact both visually and psychologically how we perceive the message.

Coty: Along with the cash prize from Threadless, you will also be receiving a ton of community donated prizes – which of these prizes are you most looking forward to?

Kanzaki: Yea!!! This is definitely one of the best part of this contest and thanks Threadless had this great idea!! :) Though it is very hard to pick they all sounds great! I would say I’m anticipating goodies from bnannas, who courtesy an original song about whatever I like!! Alvarejo, the amazing artist who courtesy an “insanely detailed” portrait of me!! Haha… how funny that will turn out!! And ivejustquitsmoking (Marco), the creative genius who will courtesy an “experimental painted pair of shoes” !!:D

Coty: Which of the Loves Green entries were your favorites, which ones did you think would win?

Kanzaki: There are just too many top designs! Threadless can simply print the Green subs for a new line of green tees!! “Carpooling is Fun!” by Alvarejo, it has so much fun and goodness in one!! Killer work for sure! “Clean-Up, Clean-Up, Everybody, Everywhere”. A great idea with epic execution by alexmdc, the winning contender of the last two Threadless loves contest. They are the winners for me, and still many designs that I really love personally, such as “The Vicious Circle of Deforestation” by Tang Yau Hoong, “The Beginner’s Guide to Tree hugging” by gumbolimbo and “Forget Me Not” by yeohgh.

Coty: What are some of the things that you do to help keep the planet green?

Kanzaki: There are many things we can do to help reduce harm to the planet, one of those that not many people know is buying less bottled water. I don’t purchase bottled water, as it uses up oil and other fossil fuels to be produced and shipped, fills up landfills, represents wasted money, produce of CO2, thus contribute to global warming. It is very simple that we can drink tap water and reuse plastic bottles to help keep the planet green.

Thanks again to Kanzaki Choi for taking the time to chat with me, and remember, leave a comment here for your chance to win Show Me The Vanilla Sky..Pls!! by Kanzaki Choi!

AT-AT Anatomy by rubyred

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a Star Wars inspired tee here so I am more than happy to feature this tee of beauty titled AT-AT Anatomy and designed by rubyred. It’s a great tee that I stumbled upon while perusing redbubble and it seems that this particular design has been getting a lot of love (by way of comments) there so I thought it was worth sharing. I have to say that it kinda reminds me of Glennz Tees for some reason, they have a similar style. 

Since the Dark Side started using genetically modified walkers, they found many had to visit the Imperial Veterinary Clinic of Osteology suffering with acute pain in their hip joints. X-rays revealed their skeleton structure was just not strong enough to manoeuvre wearing those heavy boots. No amount of Cod Liver oil would ease their pain.

The tee is available now from redbubble in a variety of color options. You can pick one up now for $26.13 after currency conversion.

Zombie Survival Plan

Here’s a great tee that I stumbled upon while perusing Rangga’s great site, Cottonable. This is probably the best shirt to have in the event that you find yourself in the middle of a zombie infestation. I always thought that zombies were a bit overrated in terms of the fright factor. I mean, come on, they are such slow movers! Unless of course you’re dealing with “I Am Legend” type zombies, in which case, this T-Shirt will probably not help you one bit. 

You can pick up Zombie Survival Plan from Crazy Dog T-Shirts for $14.99.

Farewell To Arms by Cloxboy

This is an interesting Star Wars inspired tee by Cloxboy titled Farewell To Arms. It’s obviously poking fun at the uncanny number of limbs lost throughout the 6 Star Wars films. Now here’s a stat for you, in the Star Wars films, 9 hands get chopped off. Let’s see, Anakin loses both hands, and so does Count Dooku. And Darth Vader, Grievous, The Wampa of Hoth, Mace Windu and Luke Skywalker each lost a hand while Ponda Baba had his hand cut off by Obi-Wan.

Farewell To Arms is printed on a silver American Apparel tee and is available now for purchase for 17 buckaroos. Go pick one up now to wear at your next Star Wars movie night.

Green Tree by Jeremy Prasatik

Green is in and for good reason – it’s just plain good karma to be nice to the planet we live on. And this tee, by Dallas based artist Jeremy Prasatik aka jp33, will show the world that you are indeed an eco friendly fellow. This shirt is an interesting one to me because design wise, it looks like it belongs on the tag of the tee instead of the main design. The tee is available from jp33 for $25 and of course it is printed on 100% organic cotton.
