TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 4 (January 22, 2010 to January 28, 2010):

If MacGyver was in a pickle, he’d probably eat his way out.

Forget duct tape. His teeth would be his greatest asset if ever trapped in a pickle.

Pilates keep pirates busy when they aren’t pillaging.

Nice use of P’s don’t you think? I don’t do pilates but then again, I’m not a bonafide pirate. I wish I was a pirate, though.

I’m sure grass grew fine before humans existed. Save water.

Every morning on my way to work I encounter a man. A man that loves to water his grass. He loves to water his grass a bit too much. He waters his grass a lot. In the morning and in the afternoon. This man should save water.

Strawberry fields forever means one thing: infinite shortcake!

Another Beatles infused theme. I love the Beatles and was listening to this hit when I came up with this slogan. Strawberry shortcake – who’s a fan? I am!

Lycanthropes: always ready for a good costume party.

Ahh, the werewolf. Growing up one of my favorite movies was Teen Wolf with Michael J. Fox. I recently bought the Teen Wolf & Teen Wolf Too DVD ($12 at Amazon) and although the movie wasn’t as “great” as I had remembered it as a 6 year old, I still had a blast laughing at the 80’s.

Evil people cut grass and actually enjoy it.

I’m sure that our favorite serial killer, Dexter (The Complete Third Season, $24 at Amazon), experiences some sort of weird gratification when cutting grass. It’s just a hunch.

Imagine if keyboards actually hit back.

If keyboards actually fought back then things could get nasty, especially since they have over 100 keys on the standard keyboard.

Storenvy + Hope For Haiti

Storenvy, the popular one stop place on the Internet to set up your own online shop and have goods screen printed for amazing prices have joined hands with artist from around the globe to put together a nice collection of Hope For Haiti tees. The shirts are priced at $14 and $8 from each tee will go to the American Red Cross to help support earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. They have 9 different designs to choose from featuring artists like Sven Palmowski and brands like HaHa Press and Gowalla (the popular social check in site and iPhone App).

Coty’s Thoughts:

Say Anything (Steve Jobs) by Might Tees. Pros: Super soft shirt! Might Tees uses Alternative Apparel organic shirts along with water-based inks so the print is nice and soft as well. Shirt comes packaged in a nice eco-friendly box made from recycled cardboard and is wrapped in recycled paper. Perfect shirt to get for any Apple geek – especially one that worships at the church of Steve Jobs. Cons: My only con for this shirt would be the wide neck opening, other than that – love it! Price: $26.99

Say Anything by Might Tees

I Visited The Mothership by Apple, Inc. Pros: If you ever visit the Apple Headquarters then you must get your hands on this shirt  because you wont be able to find it elsewhere (except maybe on eBay for an inflated price). It makes for the perfect conversation starter. I guarantee that every time you wear this shirt people will ask: where’s the mothership? Cons: Makes me feel like an Apple retail store employee – just a little bit. Price: $16.

I’m With Cocoa

As Wednesday creeps closer and closer the excitements has become nearly unbearable! Nonethless, Apple Week here marches on with this shirt from the guys that brought us such T-Shirts as iSteamPhone, Exploded 128 and iSteamMac. This new tee features our favorite iCEO, Steve Jobs, with the moniker I’m With Cocoa plastered below his mug.

Now, this one T-Shirt is a bit more for the hardcore Apple Geek because, unless you’ve been a Mac user for a while or are a programmer, chances are that you’re confused with the Cocoa reference.

Of course, the shirt is a parody of the recent influx of I’m With Coco gear in support of Conan O’Brien. But what does Conan have to do with Apple and Steve Job? Nothing, really. Cocoa here is in reference to Apple’s native object-oriented application program environment for the Mac OS X. It is one of five major APIs available for Mac OS X; the others are Carbon, POSIX (for the BSD environment), X11 and Java. And now you know and knowing is half the battle!

I’m With Cocoa was designed by Dwayne Clare and is available now from the I’m With Cocoa shop for $19 and you can even pick up an 18″ x 24″ poster for $19.

Hello and Welcome To Apple Week!

I’m quite sure that many of the regular readers here know that I am a diehard member of the Cult of Mac and I am damn proud of it. Many have speculated that this week Apple will be releasing the long awaited Apple Tablet. Whether it’ll be called the iTablet, iSlate, iPad, or the Jesus Tablet, I have high hopes that it’s going to be AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. And to celebrate I am officially making it Apple Week here at CotyGonzales.com! That’s right, you’ll notice an unusual influx of Apple posting this week – don’t worry, though, you’ll still get your T-Shirt fix – it’ll just be geared towards the Mac side of things!

I’ve got some fun posts planned this week so be on the look out for them! Apple users rejoice because it is looking to be an amazing week. I’m so excited!

Rock, Paper, Scissors

Kudos to our friends over at T-Post for their recent “issue” and most creative T-Shirt to date! The shirt is called Rock, Paper, Scissors and is based on that childhood game that we all know and love. What makes this shirt so awesome? It’s interactive! Put your shirt on and then jump on to the T-Post site and you can play a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors with your shirt! Seriously, I am not even kidding. The site uses your web camera and then takes advantage of augmented reality so that you can have a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors with your shirt!

Check out the video to see the shirt in action:

This interactive shirt was designed by Marc Stromberg and you can find it over at T-Post for $19. If you sign up as a subscriber you’ll receive free issues in the mail every month! If this all sounds confusing to you then check out this review I did of T-Post in Episode 36 of Co-Tee TV.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 3 (January 15 2010 to January 21 2010):

Even Bigfoot knows that the Abominable Snowman doesn’t exist.

I had to resubmit this logo because the original had a typo – oops! [NOTE: If you voted on this slogan on the past please vote again using this link, the older version had a typo :( a big boo boo for any TypeTees submission.]

Nothing clarifies the mind like meditation, beer and failure.

And sometimes a really, really long timeout works wonders as well.

I’d love to have interchangeable facial features sans potato.

Of course Mr. Potato Head was the inspiration for this slogan! I’m excited for Toy Story 3, anyone else share in my excitement? Plus, if facial features were interchangeable, would that make makeup obsolete? I wonder.

Decanting sounds like a very, very naughty word.

I’ve been reading up on wine a lot (for my drink culture blog check out Call Me Thirsty) and I realized that “decanting” sounds like something a very naughty person would do. Decanting. Say that ten times and you’ll feel sooo dirty.

Toe jams keep me from walking in other people’s shoes.

So I came up with this slogan as I was doing some blogging. It just popped in my head. I liked it and so it’s todays slogan! This slogan makes me sad because I had my wisdom teeth pulled out, all 4 of em, when I was 16!

Donating blood has its benefits: free snacks.

I’m not a big fan of needles being punctured into my skin so when someone suggested a few weeks ago that I donate blood I was taken aback. But then I thought about it … I get to save a life and I score free snacks at the end. Awesome!

Soap: curing foul mouths since 2200 BC.

Growing up, did you parents ever stick a bar of soap in your mouth whenver you dropped the F bomb? Mine never did but I reckon that millions of kids have starting with the Ancient Babylonian kids in 2200 BC! LOL.

Water the Summer Sky

What happens when you mix a water sprinkler with outer space? Well, you get Water The Summer Sky from ReThink Clothing. How many of you used to run through the sprinklers as a kid? I remembering doing that whenever we’d set up the huge blow up pool in the yard and I’d always have a blast. The only thing better? Skinny dipping under the moon in the pacific ocean (not that I have any experience doing this). Anyway, another great shirt designed by Zach Davenport, the same artist that designed Weather Wiper and Meteor Shower for ReThink Clothing.

Water The Summer Sky is printed on an American Apparel blank in both silver and mint colorways and is available for sale now for $18.99 but remember to use the code “COTY” at checkout and you can save 20% on your entire order!
