TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 1

I am starting the Slogan-A-Day experiment all over again for the new year! Last year I only made it to 77 days. That was pretty horrible. Hopefully this year I do much better!

Every day I come up with a new witty Threadless TypeTees Slogan in hopes of earning a Threadless Alumni Club Medal of Honor. At the end of every week I post a round up of that weeks slogans here on my blog. What can you do to help the cause? Vote! Just click on a slogan (preferably all of them) and then vote by click “I’d Wear It!” – it’s that simple! If you want to see and vote for all of my slogans then just click here or on that photo of me with the Rockband guitar. Vote for me and I will make you an awesome avocado burger if ever we meet in real life.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 1 (January 1 2010 to January 7 2010):

The banana is a day trippers worst enemy.

So I was listening to the Beatles and Day Tripper came on. So I thought, geeee, what would be a day trippers worst enemy. And the only logical answer was … a banana!

Excuse me while I defragment my brain.

I was reading an article in on my favorite Mac magazine Mac|Life (yes, I still read magazines despite the Internet being the end all and be all of knowledge) and I stumbled on the word defragment. And this slogan popped in my head. Sometimes, I really feel my brain could use a good defrag session.

Restless brain waves keep my dreams alive.

I was reading up on dreaming when I thought of this simple slogan. The idea is that are dreams occur during REM sleep, during which brain activity goes crazy. Once REM stops so do your dreams.

The only avatars I know are scattered around the Internet.

So there’s been a lot of chatter about that Avatar flick ad it got me thinking, the only avatars I know, are the little icons of myself scattered around the Internet.

I’m waiting for the day when I can do exercise in pill form.

I just got through working out when I came up with this slogan and this got me thinking, in the future, I reallllly wish they figure out how to cram exercise into an easy to swallow pill. How amazing would that be? Very.

In M.C. Escher’s garden, weeds are a never ending problem.

So, yeah, de-weeding M.C. Escher’s garden must have been a pain the ass. Seriously. And if you’re unsure of who he is, check out his Wikipedia page and you’ll understand why.

Symmetry looks very asymmetrical to me.

Isn’t it ironic that the work symmetry isn’t very symmetrical at all? Hypocrite.

    Really great idea. Don’t beat yourself up for not making it through the whole year before … 77 slogans isn’t a bad start! Can’t wait to see what else you come up with this year.

    Nice Idea Coty. I’ve submitted some to typetees as well but they never catch on. Tough crowd over there. I like the avatar one.
