Bad Diet + My Cookie Addiction

It’s the COOOOKIE MONSTEEER! Bad Diet by Glenn Jones of Glennz Tees has been a popular vote getter for some time now and is finally available as a T-Shirt. I have to admit that I can totally relate to this T-Shirt because I love a good batch of cookies. In my house, whenever there is a fresh batch of cookies, I transform into a cookie eating machine. Or, whenever there are Chips Ahoy or Oreos in stock inside the pantry, I can guarantee that they wont be there for long when I am at home.

I’m not sure about you, but different cookies provide me with different cookie vibes. Let’s say for instance that I want to feel nostalgic, then I’d go with a tray of store bought Chips Ahoy. If i’m feeling especially nostalgic, I’ll zap a couple of Chips Ahoy cookies in the microwave for a few seconds. I used to love doing this as a kid. And if I’m feeling daring and nostalgic then I’ll pick up a bag of Chewy Chips Ahoy!

Sometimes when I’m at the mall, I get cookie urges. The only place to go is Mrs. Fields. The standard chocolate chip cookie is my favorite but if I’m really craving chocolate then I’ll go for a chocolate chocolate cookie.

If I’m feeling like eating a “Hawaiian” cookie then I’d have to drive myself all the way to Kailua town and order a pound of assorted cookies from Chip and Cookie. The founder of Chip and Cookie was the original founder of Famous Amos cookies. Yes, Wally Amos (founder of Famous Amos) sold the brand to the Kellogg Company and then years later started Chip and Cookie in Hawaii. If you’re ever in Hawaii, I recommend checking out Chip and Cookie, they serve up excellent bite sized cookies. Think Famous Amos before Famous Amos became mass produced.

Of course, nothing beats a home cooked batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies. Moms always make the “best” cookies and my mom is no different. Although she’s been using pre-made store bought dough more often, every once in a while she’ll bake a batch from scratch. These are the best. Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies made from scratch and with heart trump anything that can ever be bought.

It’s been a while since we last saw a Stars Wars parody tee from T-Shirt favorite, Glenn Jones. Well you no longer need to hold your breath because Glenn delivers yet again with his newest tee, Be Good. Who’s that holding the lightsaber, you ask? Well it’s our favorite extra terrestrial from the 80′s, E.T. Yoda, you better watch out.

Be Good is printed on a brown American Apparel tee and is available now at Glennz Tee for $19.95.

Here’s Looking At You, Kid

I normally do not blog about Threadless submissions mainly because I don’t like to be teased and I don’t like to be a teaser. I take that back, I actually enjoy teasing others, I just don’t like being teased with designs that might possibly never see the light of day as a bonafide T-Shirt.

Let’s face it, submitting a design to Threadless is like throwing your piece of art into a haystack filled with other, equally good, pieces of art, with the hope that the Threadless regulars (and staff) will see the glow in your artwork and vote with a 5$. Oh the coveted Threadless 5$. Your design also seemingly gets lost in the crowd a bit faster if you’re new to the Threadless scene. Lack in name recognition could be the only thing holding you back from seeing your little baby of a design earn you $2500 and T-Shirt design immortality.

Having said all of that, I’d like to introduce my friend, who goes by the name of Bunny Dojo in the webiverse. He is quite a skilled designer and has a very polished portfolio. He specializes in key art and logo design. He’s also pretty good at designing those covers that your DVD’s and Blu-ray discs come packaged in. Despite this, the world of competitive T-shirt designs contests is a different kind of beast and he knows it! So I am showing off his first Threadless submission, Here’s Looking At You, Kid, partially because he’s my friend, a little because I’ve been a big fan of his work for many years now, but mostly because he has a solid design that I truly believe is worthy of being printed at Threadless. Now go vote for it!

The world will always welcome lovers. As time goes b-a-a. Inspired by a love of “Casablanca” and the styling of ‘Glennz,’ this design is my first that felt worthy of submission to Threadless. I’m really happy with it, and I hope you will be too. -Bunny Dojo

In Disguise by Glennz Tees

In the newest tee design from Glenn Jones, the panda takes the wrap. I have to say that In Disguise from Glennz Tees has a little Banksy infuseion. It might just be me, but when I see a panda holding a pistol I think of that mysterious British street artist. If you dig Banksy but prefer splashes of color over black and white then In Disguise might be the shirt for you. It’s available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.

Death By Chocolate

Fact: Forrest Mars came up with the idea for M & Ms during the Spanish Civil War. He discovered that soldiers were looking for a taste of home, in the form of chocolate, but needed something that could withstand hot temperatures. Mars took their request as a challenge and eventually came up with the candy, which he packaged in heavy tubes. Soldiers today still love M & Ms because they can hold up in just about any climate.

Rocket Science

Okay, I’ve said in the past that I am a hug fan of Glenn Jones but the only tees that I own of his are those that were available at Threadless. I think Rocket Science is the breaking point for me. I need this shirt. It’s filled with all kinds of amazingness that I must have it. Glenn, how do you do it? How do you come up with these genius ideas? I want your frontal lobe.

Rocket Science is printed on a black American Apparel blank and is available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.
