Celebrate The Beatles With 85 Icons of Fab History and Songs

The Chop Shop T-Shirts have become quite iconic. They’ve got a very unique style that appeals to not only geeks, but also design nerds. The latest shirt will also get music fans excited. And if you’re a Beatle fan then you probably already have your credit card out and ready.

The T-Shirt is called 85 Icons of Fab History and Songs and it features 85 icons related to the “four lads who shook the world” in both history and song. The Chop Shop warns that some of the icons can only be cracked by die-hard fans! As a Beatles fan, I have to admit that I really dig this T-Shirt. It’s going to be fun trying to identify all of those tiny silhouettes!

85 Icons of Fab History and Songs is available now from The Chop Shop for $23.

By the way, what are my favorite Beatles songs? Easy.

  1. Something
  2. Hey Jude
  3. Let It Be
  4. I Want To Hold Your Hand

Threadless Back To School $12 Sale

As I write this post I come to the realization that this is the first time, since I was 5, that I will not be going to school in the fall. No more classes. No more lectures. No more class projects. Sigh. It’s a bit weird to say the least. Instead of being a student this upcoming school year, I will instead begin my post-doctoral position as a neuroscience research specialist. Oddly enough, I’ll be supervising/mentoring 1-2 students of my own this coming year. Nice!

Enough about me, let’s talk T-Shirts. More specifically, let’s talk about the Threadless $12 Back To School Sale! There isn’t much to say except that the T-Shirts have been slashed about 40% – meaning you get an amazing deal.

Lot’s of tees to choose from, these are the ones that I will be ordering. Shop on T-Shirt fans, shop on!

I Am The Walrus

Our good friends over at Fuzzy Ink has just released their first shirt of the new year  and guess it what, it features a mustache! Of course, you probably would have guessed that since all of their tees feature the lovely patch of hair found above the lip of so many men (and some women). The new shirt is called I Am The Walrus, which begs the question, was this shirt inspired by the Beatles song of the same name?

I Am The Walrus features a large print of what looks like a very confident and hipster-ish Walrus. I love it! It sort of reminds me of the Otter-tude tee from Rethink Clothing that I dig so much. I know you want one of this Walrus shirt to add to your Fuzzy Ink collection so pick one up now for $20.95 and be sure to use the coupon code “Hawaii” for 10% off your entire order!

Guerrero and Shimabukuro Cover The Beatles’ Something

Here’s a great cover of the Beatles’ “Something” featuring YouTube Ukulele star Aldrine Guerrero and International ukulele superstar, Jake Shimabukuro. Credit goes to Ryan for sending me this Beatles cover, I guess he was inspired after seeing that post I did last week on the Korean kid sing “Hey Judge.” 

Anyhow, some history on this splendid song. “Something” was actually featured on the 1969 album, Abbey Road. And even more interesting, “Something” was the first Beatles single written by the late George Harrison. “Something” is second only to “Yesterday” as the most covered Beatles song. 

Something in the way she moves,
Attracts me like no other lover.
Something in the way she woos me.
I don’t want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

Somewhere in her smile she knows,
That I don’t need no other lover.
Something in her style that shows me.
I don’t want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

You’re asking me will my love grow,
I don’t know, I don’t know.
You stick around now, it may show,
I don’t know, I don’t know.

Something in the way she knows,
And all I have to do is think of her.
Something in the things she shows me.
I don’t want to leave her now.
You know I believe and how.
