Our good friends over at Fuzzy Ink has just released their first shirt of the new year Â 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!
And for those of you unfamiliar with the BEatles reference above watch this video below.
Hot off the Milk & Eggs production line are two new tees, Tree Buddies and Self Portrait. Both are two excellent additions to the Milk & Eggs Co. line and retain the simple and fun Â look and feel that I appreciate so much. My favorite from the two is Self Portrait because I often find myself in the peculiar position featured on the shirt. And I am not sure if it was intentional or not but I love how the camera looks as if it’s smiling. Do you see it? It’s winking at you.
Both Self Portrait and Tree Buddies are available now from Milk & Eggs Co. for $18 but be sure to use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout and save 10% off of your entire order! The T-Shirts are printed on American Apparel blanks and feature an embroidered tag on the left sleeve.
I’ve never heard of the “Awkward Turtle” but it does have me intrigued.
“The Awkward Turtle is done by placing one of your hands over the other with both palms facing down, sticking your thumbs outward, and rotating both of your thumbs forward in a circular motion. The speed of the rotation reflects on the degree of awkwardness. This gesture is performed after something awkward has just happened or when there is an awkward silence. When someone makes the awkward turtle gesture, the goal of all others involved in the awkward moment is to be the first to make their own turtle gesture and hump the original turtle before any other players can.”
Will you be joining the awkward turtle revolution? If so, pick up an Awkward Turtle tee from Regal Clothing Co. for Â£17.99 and be sure to use the coupon code “JINGLEBELLS” at checkout for 25% off your entire order!
It’s 2009 and so why aren’t all cars being run with some type of biofuel? Forget fossil fuels, that was so last century. We’ve got to lose our dependence on oil. The United States must play catch up and start innovating so that we can stop relying on foreign countries for our fuel. OK, I’ll get off of my little soap box now!
You can profess your interest in biofuel by wearing this shirt from our friends at Rizzo Tees. I am sure that many of the readers can relate to that mug of ice cold beer. I think, however, that the design could have featured a corn on the cob and would have made just as much sense, in fact, I think it would have been a much more powerful and insightful shirt had it been a piece of corn instead of a mug of beer. But that might just be me!
You can pick up I Run On Biofuel from Rizzo Tees for $15! Want to know a secret? You can save 10% on your entire Rizzo Tees order by using the coupon code “COTY” at checkout. Score!
Ever dream of being a page from the phone book? Well, now you can with this shirt from Origin68. Like the product page says, “it’s some great telephone book camoflage.” and I agree! And by the way, who actually uses phonebooks nowadays? Could this shirt be a tribute to another dying relic? Phonebooks are a waste of trees, anyhow. Go electronic and save leaves! Anonymous is printed on a lemon colored Continental shirt and is available for purchase from Origin68 for Â£15.00.Â

With all of the trash that we humans have accumulated during our time on this earth try and imagine what it would be like if the trash actually fought back. It would be crazy! The smell of the trash itself might be enough to do us in. The moral of the story – use biodegradable goods and reduce the amount of trash that you make.Â
Coty: What was your reaction when you found out that you won the Threadless Loves Green contest with your entry, Show Me The Vanilla Sky..Pls!!?
Kanzaki: It was the best moment in my life….I was crying, screaming, howling, spanking myself and finally I found it wasn’t a dream!!! Thanks Threadless and the amazing community gave me the staggering journey.
Coty: What was the inspiration behind your winning design?
Kanzaki: The bird eyes view line drawing has its thrill, it is dramatic and epic for story telling, you can find it very common in Japanese Manga. The design is a story telling approach, I try to tell the audients how do our animal friends feels while we human beings turning the planet to a furiously polluted “vanilla sky”, though they cannot say anything to complain, we should feel guilty when seeing the vanilla sky scene from their perspective. I think the bird eyes view is perfect to deliver that kind of impact both visually and psychologically how we perceive the message.
Coty: Along with the cash prize from Threadless, you will also be receiving a ton of community donated prizes – which of these prizes are you most looking forward to?
Kanzaki: Yea!!! This is definitely one of the best part of this contest and thanks Threadless had this great idea!! Though it is very hard to pick they all sounds great! I would say I’m anticipating goodies from bnannas, who courtesy an original song about whatever I like!! Alvarejo, the amazing artist who courtesy an “insanely detailed” portrait of me!! Haha… how funny that will turn out!! And ivejustquitsmoking (Marco), the creative genius who will courtesy an “experimental painted pair of shoes” !!:D
Coty: Which of the Loves Green entries were your favorites, which ones did you think would win?
Coty: What are some of the things that you do to help keep the planet green?
Kanzaki: There are many things we can do to help reduce harm to the planet, one of those that not many people know is buying less bottled water. I don’t purchase bottled water, as it uses up oil and other fossil fuels to be produced and shipped, fills up landfills, represents wasted money, produce of CO2, thus contribute to global warming. It is very simple that we can drink tap water and reuse plastic bottles to help keep the planet green.
Thanks again to Kanzaki Choi for taking the time to chat with me, and remember, leave a comment here for your chance to win Show Me The Vanilla Sky..Pls!! by Kanzaki Choi!
