The Allergy Collection

I’m so glad that I don’t have any weird allergies. I would be so sad if I were allergic to peanuts because that would mean no peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! There was a time when I thought that I was allergic to shelled seafoods like clams, crab and … gasp … lobster. In fact, I went through much of my teen years bypassing those foods because of a previous allergic reactions I had to clams as a child. Fearing for my life, I stayed away.

All of that changed, when, during a visit to New Orleans for a conference, my advisor from an old lab at the time, insisted that I try the raw oysters that he had ordered for our group of budding scientists. Since this was his favorite eating joint in The Big Easy, he didn’t let us order, instead, he ordered every type of seafood on the menu. My worst nightmare had come true. Nonetheless, I sucked it up (literally) and ate those oysters. AND oh my god my life had changed forever. The allergic reaction that I had expected never came and so I ate and I ate and I ate. I indulged in a decades worth of seafood in a single night. Let’s just say I made up for lost times. Ever since then, I’ve been a fan of all seafood varieties!

In any case, I thought that story would be the perfect way to segue into The Allergy Collection by the Los Angeles based design company, Jeeto. Their latest collection of patches, stickers and yes T-Shirts allow you to tell the world that you suffer from severe allergies! The collection covers peanuts, gluten, dairy, eggs and tree nuts. But alas, no seafood.

The T-Shirts from The Allergy Collection are priced from $18.95 to $19.95 and are available now from Jeeto. And by the way, these are available for the kiddos only. T-Shirt sizes available in 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-24 months, 3 year, 4 year and 5/6 year. Infant one piece sizes available in 0-6 months and 6-12 months.






Hold The Ketchup + Pizza Fight

Scared Panda is a Chicago based T-Shirt shop that specializes in tees that show off the spirit of Chicago and support non-profit organizations. What better way to show your love for your city than with its food. I’ll be the first to admit that when I visit a city that I’ve never been to, I make it a point to eat only at local dining hot spots. No McDonald’s for me. Hole in the wall joints, local eateries, bakeries, and fine dining restaurants make for one of the best ways to experience a city you’ve never been to.

The guys at Scared Panda not only have a love for Chicago but also a love for the food that Chicago has come to be known for, like the Chicago hot dog and the Chicago style deep dish pizza.

Some of you might be wondering at this point, what makes a Chicago hot dog a Chicago hot dog and how did the Chicago style deep dish pizza come about? Chicago food history lesson:

A Chicago-style hot dog is a steamed, boiled or grilled all-beef hot dog on a poppy seed bun. The hot dog is topped with mustard, onion, sweet pickle relish (often a dyed neon green variety called “Nuclear Relish” or “Emerald Relish”), a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled sport peppers, and celery salt.Some variants exist, adding ingredients such as cucumber slices, but there is a widely-shared, strong opinion among many Chicagoans and aficionados that ketchup is unacceptable.

And according to Hot Dog Chicago Style, it is important to apply the topping on a Chicago dog accordingly:

  1. Yellow Mustard
  2. Bright “Neon” Green Relish
  3. Fresh Chopped Onions
  4. Two Tomato Wedges
  5. A Pickle Spear or Slice
  6. Two Sport Peppers
  7. A Dash of Celery Salt

Chicago-style deep dish pizza has a buttery crust up to three inches tall at the edge, slightly higher than the large amounts of cheese and chunky tomato sauce, acting as a large bowl. The term also refers to “stuffed” pizza, another Chicago style. While in Chicago most pizzerias serve thin-crust pizza, generally in a style characteristic to the city, the term Chicago-style pizza is used to describe this deep-dish style of pizza.

Where to go for a Chicago-style deep dish pizza?

And of course, you can pick up the Hold The Ketchup (10% of the proceeds go to PAWS Chicago) and Pizza Fight (10% of the proceeds go to The Anti Cruelty Society) tees from Scared Panda for $17 each.

Now I’m hungry. Are you?

Philadelphia/San Francisco Day 8 + 9

Day 8 T-Shirt of Choice: Hello by Buddy Carr and New York based graphic designer Antonio Caruson

Our last full day in San Francisco was unintentionally the day that we did the most of our shopping. We decided to check out a few parts of the City by the Bay that we hadn’t seen before. This meant a trip to Japantown, South of Market (SOMA) and the Mission District. We started the day off with a visit to Japantown, which ended up being a great time. This area of San Francisco, which is located about 15 minutes from Union Square, is home to scores of Japanese shops and restaurants.

Japantown San Francisco


Instead of a big breakfast, we decided to pick up some pastries from Yasukochi’s Sweet Stop, a Japanese family-run bakery in the heart of Japantown. Everything in this very small bakery looked so good, but we both decided on the Chocolate and Strawberry Roll. And let me tell you, this was probably the most delicious piece of pastry that I’ve had in a very long time. The roll itself was very soft but the strawberry filling tasted like strawberry ice cream. I wish I could have tried more pastries from Yasukochi’s, but alas, there’s always next time. Make Yasukochi’s a must stop if you ever find yourself in San Francisco.

Japantown had so many little shops to offer. Michelle spent a considerable amount of time in the largest Sanrio store that I’ve ever seen. Talk about Hello Kitty overload. I’ve never been in a room with more pink in my entire life. Wow.

Japantown Red Bean Fish Pastry

While Michelle indulged in her shopping, I decided to stop by a little food stand called May’s Coffee Shop. They specialize in these little fish-shaped pastries that are filled with sweet red beans. I picked up one of those as well as a spam musubi. It almost felt like I was back in Hawaii (spam musubis are huge in Hawaii). And for the uninitiated, spam musubis is a rectangular block of rice topped with a slice of spam and wrapped in nori (seaweed). The red bean pastry was good, the musubi was ok, but more interesting than that, I was sitting next to the owner of May’s Coffee Shop. I struck up a conversation with this 75ish looking Japanese lady and she mentioned to me that she had just returned from vacationing in Hawaii. How neat!

Nippon-Ya is a great place to pick up Japanese candies and mochi. I picked up a box of strawberry and chocolate mochi as well as a box of banana and chocolate mochi. I can’t wait to try them!



The most exciting part of our journey to Japantown was the experience known as PikaPika. PikaPika is a shop filled with tons of Japanese photo booths. And we are talking authentic Japanese photo booths that speak to you in Japanese! Luckily, they provide English directions on these large cardboard slabs. What makes the PikaPika fun is that it’s timed so you have to move quickly when figuring out your different poses. Some booths also have monkey bars for those who want to try out some outrageous poses! Once you’ve taken all of your photos, you can then design them with borders and different designs. Apparently, these photo booths are all the rage in Japan. It was a super fun experience!

After Japantown, we headed toward the area of San Francisco known as SOMA, which is short for South of Market Street. Our main mission in SOMA was to stop by the Gama-Go store. T-Shirt fans will probably be familiar with Gama-Go. They are an independent T-Shirt brand based out of San Francisco. I’ll give Gama-Go their own post here on the blog with photos taken at the shop, so, be on the lookout for that.


Things got interesting when we left SOMA for the Mission District of San Francisco. The Mission District has a very large Latino population, so much so, that it caught us a little bit by surprise. We had planned to stop by a restaurant known as The Sandwich Place for lunch, but unfortunately they had just closed for the day. So, we decided to go straight to our next stop on the day’s itinerary which was Goldilocks Bakery, a bakery deep in the Mission District. Michelle ended up buying an insane amount of Filipino pastries to take home for her mom.

We wrapped up the afternoon by eating lunch in a Chinese hole in the wall across the street from the Goldilocks Bakery. It was called Chop Sticks Fast Food Restaurant. Chinese Fast Food Restaurant. We ended up there after we saw that it had a very high ranking on Yelp. It was a one man run pit stop for very cheap Chinese food. In this case, cheap also meant very good Chinese food. We each got large plates for $4 a piece. How insane is that?

After heading back to the hotel to freshen up, we decided to catch a movie at the Westfield Mall, which was conveniently located across our hotel on Market Street. We saw the new Ben Stiller flick, Greenberg. It was an odd little indie type flick. I enjoyed it; Michelle, not so much.

For dinner we stopped by Cafe Bellini on Powell Street for some pasta. I had the spaghetti with meatballs and Michelle had the penne pesto pasta. The food was ok and we were just happy to find something open for dinner that late in the night.

Day 9 T-Shirt of Choice: I Am The Walrus and Striking Zip Up Hoodie by Fuzzy Ink (not a T-Shirt, I know, but it is made by a popular indie designer who we’ve featured on this site many times before).

And so the journey back home begins. But not just yet. We still had a few hours left in lovely San Francisco so we decided to make the most of it. We had breakfast at one of our favorite breakfast spots in the city, Sear’s Fine Foods. If you watch either the Travel Channel or the Food Channel then chances are that you’re familiar with Sear’s. The thing to get at Sear’s is their World Famous 18 Swedish Pancakes. We of course ordered that as well as the usual breakfast fare of eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast.

Sear's Fine Food

After breakfast we crossed the street to Union Square–home to the famous San Francisco Hearts. These large heart structures can be found throughout the city, but the ones in Union Square are definitely the most famous. “Hearts in San Francisco began in 2004 as a fundraiser for the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. Like the famous painted cows, the painted hearts, created from uniform molds and painted by individual artists, decorate the city in areas like Union Square, until they are auctioned off at a benefit for the charity. New hearts are unveiled each year.”

San Francisco Heart

And with that final sightseeing session, our vacation was officially over. As we prepared for the daunting 8 hour trip back home, we reflected a bit about the last 9 days. We both realized that we genuinely loved the city of San Francisco. We also both realized that we absolutely hated flights that involve stop-overs. Philadelphia undoubtedly has some of the best eating spots on the planet. San Francisco’s eclectic and diverse culture never gets old.

We both began brainstorming ideas for our next trip, and the one after that. One thing is for sure, we both love traveling and food. And the best way to experience one or the other is to do them both at the same time. I could have a cheesesteak anywhere in the world, but it would never be as good as a cheesesteak eaten in the heart of south Philadelphia. I look forward to my next trip, wherever that may be. I just hope that it is as good as this one has been, filled with just as many memories, and involves lots and lots of great food.

And here’s a little video slideshow for you to enjoy!

I’m Fat Let’s Part + Zombie Dinosaur!

Our good friend David Murray of Seibei just released two new (and awesome) tees! I’m a big fan of Seibei and will probably be ordering at least one of these tees in the near future. My navy and white Sandwich Dinosaur tee is getting a little worn out so I think it might be time to upgrade to the brand spanking new Zombie Dinosaur design.

Although I never grew up as the prototypical fat kid, there was a time when I was referred to as being husky. Husky, hmmmmmm. Is that code for fat? Probably. And as such, I’d be proud to wear the new I’m Fat Let’s Party Shirt.

Both of the new tees are available now for sale at Seibei for $22. Also, word on the street is that Seibei will be unleashing a brand spanking website redesign. I’m excited to see what he has in store for us.

Philadelphia/San Francisco Day 5 + 6

Day 5 T-Shirt of Choice: Robocopper by Olly Moss

Wednesday coast-to-coast travel. From the east coast to the west coast, we made our way from the City of Brotherly Love to the City by the Bay. But before spending 6 hours in the sky and about 3 in airports, we were sure to get a good and hearty breakfast. We decided on the Morning Glory Diner, suggested by fellow tee blogger and traveler extraordinaire, Andy Bowness of Hide Your Arms. Michelle went with the Glory Cakes: three pancakes served with real maple syrup and I had the Foccacia Breakfast Sandwich with a fried egg and cheese served with potatoes. I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast, but Michelle was a bit more reserved when it came to her pancakes – she thought Sabrina’s was a better breakfast spot!

After breakfast, we walked about two blocks down to Isgro’s Patries. Yes, we were there a few days earlier, but, we were both amazed by the baked goodies that we took home prior that we needed to go and grab some more delicious delectables for the long flight to San Francisco. We bought a bag full of assorted cookies – so soft and delicious and perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Once we found our way back to the Loews Hotel, we quickly grabbed our things and caught a taxi to Philadelphia International Airport. Security was quick and in no time we were waiting to board our plane to Las Vegas en route to San Francisco. We had about a 2 hour stop at Las Vegas’ McCarren Airport and then we boarded our flight to San Francisco – yes, finally!

We arrived at our hotel, the Parc 55, at about 6:30 pm but had to quickly get ready for 8 pm reservations at the very swank Masa’s on Bush Street in San Francisco’s Nob Hill. Masa’s offers a set menu of French cuisine. They offer 3 course, 5 course and 9 course options. I went with the 5 course and Michelle settled on the 3 course. My 5 course menu consisted of a potato confit to start, Japanese sea bass topped with caviar, Sautéed Breast of Paine Farms Squab (with peppercorn glazed d’anjou pears, melted brussels sprouts, “confit” leg, and squab sauce), Herb Roasted Double Chop of Australian Lamb (with melted japanese eggplant, chickpea cake, baby artichokes, and lamb jus), and a platter of in-house chocolates.

Overall, I enjoyed Masa’s. It is fine dining, so expect to spend around $250 for a party of two (if both get the 5 course menu) or up to $500+ of you decide on the 9 course menu. The ambiance was classy, the waiters were very nice, friendly and not high-browed at all. Masa’s is definitely an “event” type restaurant. Go there for an anniversary or birthday with that special someone and it will definitely be an experience to remember.

[Sorry for the lack of Day 5 photos.]

Day 6 T-Shirt of Choice: Phenom Polo by Electric Zombie (not a T-Shirt, I know, but it is made by a popular indie designer who we’ve featured on this site many times before).

This being our second visit to San Francisco (see 2008 recaps), we searched for breakfast spots that we had missed out on the first time around. This search led us to Mama’s on Washington Square. When we got to the popular breakfast spot at 10:30 am, the line had already wrapped around the building. We didn’t get inside until about 11:30 am. That’s a one hour wait in line! But let me tell you, it was well worth it. I ordered the Mama’s French Toast Sampler plate and I was not disappointed. It was a nice, refreshing change from my usual eggs, meat and potato choice. The sampler plate consisted of Swedish Cinnamon, Banana Nut, and Kugelhopf (House Baked Brioche Bread with Golden Raisins, Cinnamon, Dates, and Sliced Almonds). Mama’s french toast was a fruity mouthgasm – so good!

Mama's on Washington Square

After breakfast we caught the MUNI to Coit Tower, which was was built in Pioneer Park atop Telegraph Hill in 1933 at the bequest of Lillie Hitchcock Coit to beautify the City of San Francisco. It cost 5 bucks to get to the top, but once you do get to the top of the tower, you get a nice view of the city. You can even see the famed “crookedest street in the world” Lombard Street from afar.

Coit Tower

We then caught the MUNI yet again to The Haight, which includes the famous intersection, Haight and Ashbury. The area features a bohemian ambiance and has a thriving center of independent local businesses. Being a T-Shirt fan, I had to stop by Kid Robot and Ashbury T-Shirts. I did more window shopping then I did actual shopping, though, we did stop by a little crepe shop and picked up two nutella and banana crepes.

Haight and Ashbury

Nutella and Banana Crepe

Once we finished checking out the eclectic scene at The Haight, we walked down towards Alamo Square. If you grew up in the 80’s, then you’re familiar with Alamo Square and probably don’t even know it. Alamo Square is the park that is heavily featured in the opening sequence of the hit ABC show, Full House. It also faces the Full House “House,” which is actually part of a well known row of homes known as the Painted Ladies.

Alamo Square / Painted Ladies / Full House

After a long day of walking and jumping on and off the MUNI, we headed back to our hotel to freshen up before dinner. I should note that if you do visit San Francisco, it is totally worth it to purchase a MUNI Passport. We bought the 3-day pass for $20 and got our money’s worth within our first day of using the pass. Pick up your MUNI pass in the MUNI kiosk in Union Square.

Since we were entirely pooped after a long day of journeying the streets of San Francisco, we opted for an easy dinner. Easy meaning that we walked just a few blocks up Powell Street to Lori’s Diner for some burgers and fries (me) and steak (Michelle). The last time we visited San Francisco, we had a late night meal at a Lori’s Diner that is located on the opposite end of Powell near our old hotel, The Orchard. The burger wasn’t as good as I had remembered it being, though. I think my memory of the previous burger might have been clouded due to the hunger I had been experiencing at the time of consumption.

Philadelphia/San Francisco Day 4

Day 4 T-Shirt of Choice: Love Your Fellow As Yourself by schmoo

Unlike yesterday, Day 4 started off with a nice chunk of sunshine. That was a relief. We were able to do a few of the things that we missed out on yesterday when it was pouring cats and dogs. The day started by walking to City Hall, which is located just a few blocks from the Loews Hotel. We signed up for the tower tour and went to the top of the City Hall clock tower, just below the large William Penn statue that overlooks the City of Philadelphia.

LOVE Sculpture Philadelphi

After taking a few pics from the top of City Hall, we walked over to Love Park, where Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE sculpture stands. We took a gazillion photos and then moved on to the Comcast Center. The Comcast Center has a neat (and very huge) HD video wall, with short videos playing throughout the day. Below the lobby you’ll find a small market. We made a pit stop there, where I picked up a drink and a small croissant. The croissant served as a warmup to our Pat’s and Geno’s pilgrimage.

Geno's Steaks


(Top: Genos is all glitz and glamour but lacking in the taste department. Bottom: Pat’s, good but not as good as Jim’s Steaks)

My frist experience with a Philly Cheesesteak came to me at Jim’s Steaks. After that first cheesesteak, my mind was blown and I was ready to experience the much hyped Pat’s and Geno’s variety. We caught a taxi from the Loews Hotel to the Cheesesteak mecca of the world. For the uninitiated, Pat’s and Geno’s are located right across of each other and are considered rival cheesesteak stands. So of course, we had to experience both Pat’s and Geno’s. Pat’s was alright, and Geno’s felt a bit too generic (though, their fries were good). My conclusion, Jim’s Steaks dominates both Pat’s and Geno’s. If you want a Philly Cheesesteak, then know this: Jim’s Steaks is the center of the universe.

Despite the disappointing Pat’s and Geno’s experience, dinner more than made up for it! In our attempt to hit up the restaurants of all of the Iron Chefs, we just had to experience the newest Iron Chef Jose Garcia’s restaurant, Amada. Garcia’s Amada specializes in authentic Spanish Tapas. We settled on three different dishes, the LECHÓN CON QUESO (Braised Pork Shoulder, La Peral, Pine Nut, Apple & Fennel), ENTRECÔTE A LA CATALAN (Prime Sirloin with Catalán Spinach, Membrillo & Goat Cheese), and the ARROZ DE LANGOSTA (Lobster Bomba Rice with Clams, Lemon Zest & Golden Pea Shoots). The dishes were nicely proportioned, and, more importantly, tasted oh so good.


We decided to pass on dessert at Amada and opted instead to get some ice cream at the famed Franklin Fountain. This old school ice cream fountain is like a time warp, as evidenced by the decor and the staff who were dressed as if it was the 1920’s. You might recall that Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food had the Mt. Visuvious here. I decided on the Franklin Mint and Michelle had the Banana Split For My Baby. Both were very indulgent choices. We honestly should have shared one, but, I was intent on mint ice cream. Needless to say, we tried as hard as we could, but in the end, neither of us ate more than half of our ice cream dishes.

Franklin Fountain

And as I’ve been doing, here’s a video slideshow of some of the photos that we took during this lovely day in Philly!

Philadelphia/San Francisco Day 1 + 2

This is the first of a couple day-by-day updates that I’ll be doing during my trip to Philadelphia and San Francisco. I thought it would be cool to keep you guys up to date  on what I’m up to and what tees I’m wearing! If you want to check out the tee that I wore, just click on the orange links.

Arrival/Day 1 T-Shirt of Choice: Dance Party Massacre by Dance Party Massacre

The thing about flying from Hawaii to the east coast of the United States is that it takes a very, very  long time. It took us 5 hours to fly to from Honolulu to San Francisco and then 5 more hours to fly from San Francisco to Philadelphia. We left Honolulu at 6:45 am Saturday morning and arrived at our final destination at 1:00 am the next day. After an eventful “taxi ride” from the airport to the Loews Philadelphia Hotel and despite our hunger, we quickly … fell … asleep.

Day 2 T-Shirt of Choice: I’ve Just Developed A Theory That Proves I’m Not A Nerd by Made With Awesome

Despite an uneventful first day spent flying the friendly skies, our first full day in Philadelphia was action packed. We started the day at 9:00 am by walking from the Loews hotel to the Independence Visitor Center to pick up our tickets to tour Independence Hall. With a 10:20 am tour time, we had some time to spare, so we headed to Mrs. K’s Koffee Shop for a classic diner breakfast. I had one of their specials, which consisted of pancakes, sausage and two eggs. Michelle had the same, minus the eggs. The pancakes were so good, fluffy and oh so tasty.

Independence Hall

After breakfast, we rushed off to Independence Hall to make our 10:20 am tour time. We just made it. Actually, we were a minute late and the tour had already started. One of the park rangers (yes, it’s a National History Park), had to usher us in to meet up with our tour. The tour was an interesting one with a lot of historical facts intertwined. The State House is where the dream of a free country of independent citizens materialized. Here, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were scribed. I was totally channeling the inner Benjamin Franklin in me.

Liberty Bell

From the Liberty Bell, we headed to the final resting spot of Benjamin Franklin at the Christ Church Burial Ground. We both tossed a penny onto his grave, as it was akin to tossing a coin in the Trevi Fountain. After we tossed our pennies, a worker came to collect the coins and we overheard him mention that they annually receive $4000 worth of pennies. Neat! When someone asked him why people tossed pennies versus other coins, another visitor recounted one of Benjamin Franklin’s thoughts: A penny saved is a penny earned.

By this time, our hunger had been growing, so we set out for Jim’s Steaks which is considered to be better than the famed Geno’s and Pat’s by many locals that I’ve spoken with. So to South Philly we went, in search for my first taste of a real Philly Cheesteak. I was excited. The line at Jim’s was, as expected, very long. It took us about 20 minutes before we were able to place our order. Michelle and I shared a Philly Cheesesteak with Wiz and Mushrooms. I’m not the greatest onion fan, so we left that out. The restaurant was packed so we ended up standing and eating at one of the counters upstairs. The cheesesteak was amazingly good. The bread was soft and the cheese wiz was the perfect complement to the very tasty steak. I now know why Philly Cheesesteaks are world renown. They’re so good!

Jim's Steaks Philly Cheesesteak

And as if we needed more food, we then headed to Isgro’s Pastries where they’ve been making cannolis for over 100 years. The bakery was filled with so many baked goodies that I almost went into a sugar shock before taking a bite into my cannoli! We ordered some cookies (Cherry Garcia, Rocky Road and Chocolate Chip Ricotta) and of course, two chocolate chip cannolis!

Isgro's Cannoli's

With no place to sit and enjoy our cannolis we decided that we’d make Reading Terminal our unofficial Isgro eating spot, as we had also gone to Chinatown. We’ll be visiting Reading Terminal on another day for a more thorough visit. Today, we just needed a place to eat our cannolis! Once we devoured the cannolis we went straight to our hotel for some rest before dinner at Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurant. On a side note, while we were totally enjoying our delicious cannolis, an inquisitive wanderer stopped by, wondering where in Reading Terminal she could purchase the same cannoli. Unfortunately we had to tell her that we picked them up at Isgro’s. She left sad. And without a cannoli.

Alright, you might think that with all the food we had up to this point, we would be quite stuffed. Rubbish! We were both so excited to dine at Morimoto, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s sleek namesake restaurant on 7th and Chesnut. The food did not disappoint. Michelle decided on the Morimoto tempura to start and the seafood toban yaki. I decided on the 7 course Morimoto omakase, the chef’s choice multi-course tasting menu designed to allow you to experience the essence of Morimoto’s menu. It was worth the 80 bucks because at the end of the day, I’m not a raw fish fan but somehow, Morimoto made me fall in love with raw fish. I left full and satisfied.




And finally, Michelle and I put together a little photo slideshow of our first full day in sunny Philadelphia! Enjoy. You can also check out these photos on my Flickr.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 6

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 cook you can amazing set of eggs benedict if ever we meet in real life.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 6 (February 5, 2010 to February 11, 2010):

I’m an egg beater. Sue me.

Whenever I make scrambled eggs, I like to beat em and whip em into submission. Don’t get in between me and eggs.

I miss your voice. Call, don’t text.

I never was a big text-er. I prefer speaking. In person.

Ninjas, they’re just naturally good at hide and seek.

Of course they would be! They excel at covert espionage … Hide and Seek would be childs play for a seasoned Ninja! RAWR!

I’ll be your scapegoat if that means I get to ram you with horns.

And that’s the only way you’ll ever get ME to be your scapegoat.

I admit I am not an alpha male, but I am a beta boy.

I heard a similar line from a movie that I watched this week. I can’t for the life of me remember what that movie was. Any ideas?

Beware, surveillance cameras are in constant use.

Everywhere, they are everywhere. I came up with this slogan while I was walking to work and noticed that nearly every intersection there was a surveillance camera alongside each stop light. It’s 2010 but it’s starting to look like 1984.

Instead of using the asterisk key I like to throw ninja stars.

Why? Because ninja stars are rad – that’s why!

Pyknic Releases Winter 2009 Line

Pyknic Clothing just unleashed upon the world their Winter 2009 line and my oh my what a release it is. Over 25 new products for both men and women. They’ve got standard tees, totes, v-necks, sweaters and baseball tees. It also looks like they are focusing a bit more on branding now, with a bunch of their shirts featuring just the forks and basket logo ala Johnny Cupcakes crossbones and cupcakes logo tees. The one thing that they are doing differently from Mr. Cupcakes is that they have been invading the malls for teen consumption – Pyknic Clothing is available at Pacsun stores nationwide.

The tees are available now from the Pyknic Online Store and start from $26.98. My favorite from the bunch? It’s got to be the simple Feed The Hungry tee.
