Sleepy Dan: You Snooze You Lose!

There seems to be some sort of indie T-Shirt rennaissance happening in Dallas, TX. Fur Face Boy, Grits Apparel … and now Sleepy Dan. Dallas is certainly home to some playfully inspired up-and-coming indie T-Shirt brands. Sleepy Dan is certainly one of those up-and-coming brands that you should keep an eye on.

Sleepy Dan recently released their first collection of T-Shirts, aptly named Series 1. The collection features a set of 6 T-Shirt designs loosely centered on the theme of sleeping. So expect to see things like alarm clocks and pillows in the Sleepy Dan designs. Sleepy Dan also features a few homages to pop culture, as seen in the Sleepy Bowser and Big D T-Shirt.

The Sleepy Dan T-Shirts are priced at $26 a piece and are available now at the Sleepy Dan Shop. You can also find a limited selection of ladies sized tees and a Series 1 Sleepy Dan sticker and button fan pack.

Life’s Too Short Not To Be Norwegian

I spotted this shirt over at the wonderful movie blog, Slashfilm. It reads “Life’s Too Short Not To Be Norwegian.” Apparently, Norwegian people are really happy going folks! The shirt is featured in the upcoming comedy A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy featuring the ever raunchy SNL alum, Jason Sudeikis. Check out the trailer below.

I have no idea where you can buy this shirt, but if you find out then feel free to leave a comment below!

Tee Shirt Stories: Cotton, Art & Fun

Directors Dimitri Pailhe and Julien Potart have put together something that looks to be very special. They’ve made a documentary that is focused completely on T-Shirts. Yes, an entire documentary about T-Shirts. Of course, this should peak your interest considering you’re perusing a T-Shirt blog. Tee Shirt Stories: Cotton, Art & Fun was broadcast in France on Canal+ on June 29, 2011. Unfortunately for me, I don’t live in France and therefore I haven’t been able to take a peak at this documentary. So since I haven’t seen it, a full review will indeed have to wait!

In the meantime, you can go ahead and order the documentary on DVD. It’s available now over at the Colette webstore for €25 – about the price of the T-Shirt! OK, I’m going to go ahead and place my order now so that I can give you guys a proper review!

“This documentary offers an immersion in the culture of the tee-shirt, this simple piece of clothing has become a work of art for some and counter culture symbol for others. Featuring Dov Charney, Richard Hell, Daniel Johnston, Tony Alva, Jim Philips, Court Johnson, Grotesk, Earsnot, Pedro Winter and So-Me, Mark Cobrasnake and Jonny Makeup….”
