Enjoy 8-Bit

Games nowadays tend to be too complex (for me anyway). I loved the simplicity of the games of yesteryear. The graphics were simple, the buttons were kept to a minimum and the storyline was always one that I could follow without getting a headache. Those were the days of 8-Bit games. And those days are long gone.

Luckily, this new tee from J!NX helps us to remember the relaxing days of 8-Bit games. The shirt is called Enjoy 8-Bit and is the perfect shirt to unwind in after a long, hard day at work.

“The Man’s been breathing down your neck, probably asked you to come in on Saturday. Why don’t you come on home, sit your bum on the couch, and fire up a nice, relaxing game of 8-bit. There’s nothing like a satisfying game of 8-bit to set the world right again.”

Pick up Enjoy 8-bit from J!NX for $21.99 and get $10 off your order of $35 with the coupon code: DADSROCK. *Can’t combine with other discounts or promos. (Expires 6/18/2010)

JINX (J!NX) Clothing Company + Ridiculous Shipping

I love me a good T-Shirt. I love T-Shirts so much that I have a closet filled with T-Shirts. Plain T-Shirts, Bright T-Shirts, T-Shirts that scream ME, Odd T-Shirts and Old Skanky Stinky Filled with Holes T-Shirts (not so much). I even have a stack of unused virgin T-Shirts.

Needless to say, when I see a cool T-Shirt, I buy it. So it really irritates me when there’s a T-Shirt that I want and the price that I have to pay to get it is ridiculous, especially when it doesn’t need to be. First of all, I’m more than happy to pay $20-$25 for a custom designed indie T-Shirt. What I’m not happy to pay is $10.49 (or $17.49) for …. wait for it … shipping on a single T-Shirt that cost $14.95! 

The culprit here is JINX (J!NX) Clothing Company. They make and sell specialty geek inspired T-Shirts. A lot of awesome stuff indeed. They also make the official Diggnation and Totally Rad Show T-Shirts. I love Diggnation and am an active (addicted) Digg user. I love the Totally Rad Show and I watch on a weekly basis. I would love to have T-Shirts for these two shows but the damn shipping is ridiculous! I really don’t understand why, as a Hawaii resident, I need to pay over 10 bucks for shipping! Do they tack on an extra 5 bucks for “handling?” I’ve ordered tons of shirts online and they usually charge no more than 5 bucks for shipping and handling costs. 

Boo to you JINX! Boo to you.
