It’s funny how design inspiration comes about. This particular T-Shirt design from Etsy seller, LovesickRobotStudios, has its origins from a UC Davis Occupy Protest that took place on November 20, 2011. Lieutenant John Pike was photographed pepper spraying UC Davis students seated in protest.
Of course, this pissed off a lot of people. Soon after, Lieutenant John Pike began popping up on InternetLAND, eventually finding his way in the 1819 painting Declaration of Independence by John Trumbull and then Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (1884) by Tumblr blog It Makes No Sense.
I have to admit, it kind of pains me to post that California Love T-Shirt. I’ve got nothing against the state, in fact, San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. However, California is home to … errr, The Lakers. Yes, I am a Laker hater. With that said, I love the name play (shirt is called California Love) of the T-Shirt and I dig how they tweaked the state outline. Cool.
I included the Evolution of the Muff T-Shirt for giggles. And because I can. And because I know there is maybe a pinky full of you who would buy that T-Shirt. Go for it.
The Ashkahn tees designed by Ashkahn Shahparnia are priced at $19 a piece, that’s 41% off the retail price of $32.00. Remember, Fab.com is invite only so if you’re not already a member, here’s an invite from ME to YOU. *Shipping to Hawaii requires an additional $25 per order. Come on Fab, can we get this fixed. It doesn’t cost $25 to ship to Hawaii. I know because I live here!
They’ve also got some really cool pillows and prints for sale. I’m really digging on the bold red “BORING” pillow. Love it.
I don’t live in California, but if I did I would definitely be voting YES for Proposition 19. Not familiar with the Prop 19? Here’s some more information:
“Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, is a California ballot proposition which will be on the November 2, 2010 California statewide ballot. It legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate these activities, permits local governments to impose and collect marijuana-related fees and taxes, and authorizes various criminal and civil penalties.” via Wikipedia
I honestly do not see why marijuana should not be legalized. I am serious. It’s not cocaine and it definitely is not heroine. In fact, some might argue that health wise, it is better than a pack of cigarettes that you can legally purchase (I am one of those people).
Check out these ads in support of Prop 19:
And CNN takes a look at legalizing marijuana:
I’d love to hear what YOU think about Proposition 19. Do you think marijuana should be legalized in California? I’d especially love to here to what people from California think.
And while you ponder your position on this topic, take a peek at this pro Proposition 19 T-Shirt from NerdyShirts. It’s reminder that the November elections are just around the corner so be sure to vote YES on Prop 19!
That’s Only In The Mornin’ is the newest tee from our friends at Shirts Taste Good, and I have to say, it’s a “wooo woo” hoot! If you haven’t checked out Shirts Taste Good and you’re a YouTube zombie then you don’t know what you’re missing. They take the best YouTube viral videos and turn them into shirts!Â
I had never seen this particular video before (I am no YouTube zombie) so I at first did not get the reference on the T-Shirt. But after watching the short 2:22 clip, it all made sense. And then I cracked up in laughter! That’s Only In The Mornin’ is available for $17.95 from Shirts Taste Good!
Loyal To Your Soil recently unveiled their new Spring 2009 Collection and I have to admit that this line is hot. I actually dig their new duds much more than their older designs. They’ve got a couple of tees infused with some southern California flavor, but all the designs should appeal to anyone into board sports, especially skateboarding.Â
The tees are printed on 100% ringspun cotton and are available now for $18.99. But, since Loyal To Your Soil is part of the Attack of the Coupon Codes you can save 10% when you use the coupon code “cg10″!
I first ate at California Wok about four years ago. For some reason, I didn’t return back to this little food establishment until maybe a month ago, and I’ve been back at least five times since then. I’m a bit addicted to the Chicken plates.
California Wok bills itself as being a healthy and low fat Chinese food alternative. This was incentive enough for me to try this place out once again since I love to eat Chinese food (luckily for my waist, I don’t eat typical Chinese food too often). My favorite dishes at California Wok include the Chicken and Broccoli and the Cha Cha Chicken. As you can see, I love my chicken! The Cha Cha Chicken is a mixture of Chicken, mushrooms and spinach. Both dishes are absolutely wonderful. If you order the Chicken with Broccoli, I would recommend ordering a full plate as the broccoli is pretty bulky and will take up most of the portion. On the other hand, the half-plate of Cha Cha chicken is pretty filling.
According to the California Wok website, they use “fresh vegetables, low sodium soy sauce, 100% cholesterol-free canola oil and by preparing each dish to your dietary preference.” They had better be using healthy ingredients if I am going to pay that three-dollar premium!Â
If you’re in the Ala Moana area and want a healthy alternative to Panda Express than I would recommend checking out California Wok. It is located near Assagio’s and is right next to the American Saving Bank Ala Moana Branch.
