Tech Noir + Other Stuff

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about Found Item Clothing and our good friend Travis Greenwood. Well now is as good of a time than ever to get all caught up. As you might know, Found Item Clothing faithfully recreates T-Shirt designs from popular movies of our youth. One of their most recent designs is called Tech Noir from the immensely popular 1984 Sci-Fi flick, The Terminator. This is classic James Cameron before he made 3D blue people. I kind of like the old James Cameron a better, but I digress.

Not sure of the Tech Noir reference? Its from the nightclub of the same name featured in the film. It was location for the initial sequence between Kyle Reece and the then pre-Governator T-800. Tech Noir is available now from Found Item Clothing for $19.95.

Travis has also been busy blogging over at the official Found Item Clothing blog, It Goes To 11. Check out the interview that he recently did with Jon Martin of Shirtoid. And if you’re feeling especially patriotic then head on over to Hide You Arms for a list of 26 Captain America T-Shirts that Travis put together as a guest post.

Late Night Barbarian

OK, so this Threadless tee was just too good to not post and share with you T-Shirt fanatics. Surprisingly, the shirt reminds me more of something that you’d see on Teefury, as they are typically very quick to jump on current pop references. But then I remembered, that the Coco/NBC/Leno saga is already 5 months old. How time flies, huh?

I just wish that the Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour was coming to Hawaii. I guess we can’t have it all, right? The shirt will have to do. Buy Late Night Barbarian from Threadless for $18.

PS: I love how the model has “Conan” hair. Love it.

Salvation Denied by SplitReason

I’ve always been a fan of the Terminator movie and so when I saw this tee from Salvation Denied from SplitReason.com I got excited. The name of the shirt itself is pretty epic and a play on the most recent Terminator flick, Terminator Salvation. And by the way, Salvation was a gazillion times better than Rise of the Machines. I’m just sayin’. The lightening bolts on the skull add a nice touch to the exoskeleton! I wonder if my skull has an lightening bolts inscribed? Salvation Denied is available now from SplitReason.com for $18.95.

Paper airplanes are better than the real thing.

Yeah, I think. Why? Because you can build them on a whim and if they crash it’s no big deal.

I like my peanut butter nutty.

Indeed I do. In fact, I like it extra nutty. 

I surf the sea of emotions.

I might not be able to surf the ocean very (ok, not at all), but, I do know how to surf a sea filled with wild emotions. I do that very well.

Static electricity keeps me grounded.

OK, this slogan probably does not make any sense from a physics point of view, but, I came up with it after I shocked myself while touching the door knob of my hotel room. I hate when that happens. Past experience tells me this will happen a lot more when I get to Sin City. 

I’ll bet you a dollar that you read this sentence.

Oh, this I came up with as I was walking 5th avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. I saw a homeless man in a wheelchair coming towards me on the street while holding a sign. The sign said: I’ll be you $1 that you read this sign. I did read the sign and a slogan was born. 

Hand sanitizer: helping to create super germs.

Seriously, that’s what you’re doing every time that you choose to use hand sanitizer. You really don’t need to use hand sanitizer. It’s overkill. Sometimes germs can be a good thing.

Resistance is futile unless you are a part of The Resistance.

If you’re a fan of the Terminator series then you’ll get this slogan. By the way, I did see Terminator Salvation and I have to say that it was a gazillion times better than Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. It wasn’t as great as T2 but it was still a very good movie.
