This months Omunky tee is so chill. It’s just a monkey and his music, with no other bother in the world. I need one of these days … and soon. Chillin’ and listening to music, free of any worries, is truly chicken soup for the soul.
What’s your favorite song of the moment? What’s that song song that you just can’t get out of your head? For me, it’s a rather old song titled Spoils of the Spoiled by a relatively unknown group, The New Amsterdams. I’ve been listening to it a lot during the past few days. I listen to it whenever I have things on my mind. Have a listen and then go and pick up Munky Rhythm from Omunky for $22.
Fork, knife and … record? Consumer is a great statement shirt from the people over at People Like Me, a New Jersey based brand that insists the right brain is never wrong! What do you consume?

A few of you might be gadget consumers, always eating up the latest and greatest technological marvel. What kind of consumer are you?
Consumer is printed on a 100% fine jersey tee and is available now from People Like Me for $28. Think the price is a bit too stiff? Sign up for the People Like Me newsletter and you’ll be rewarded with a 15% coupon code that you can use!
The classic RUN DMC tee is one of my all-time favorite tees and so when I spotted Run Free by Fee Clothing I just had to share it. The shirt features the classic RUN DMC look, including the iconic red bars. Run Free does add a splash of color to the design, which is normally just black and red. You can pick up Run Free from Free Clothing for $18.
This whole NBC vs. Conan O’brien vs. Jay Leno debacle has got me enthralled with network television for the first time in, well, quite a while. I’ve been watching the late night shows just to listen to the quicks jabs that they’ve been taking at each other. I admit that I’m a bit sad to see Conan O’brien leave the peacock station. NBC, 7 months really wasn’t enough time for him to find his audience. In any case, all of this late night drama has led to an amazing I’m With CoCo campaign. Here are 6 T-Shirts that you can choose from to show your support for the Conan O’brien / Team Coco / I’m With Coco cause.
The designer of this T-Shirt, Jayarr Steiner, runs a local screen printing service in Rochester, New York. He sent me a link to a video of this tee that he designed using thermochromatic ink.
“So basically the way this shirt design work is like this: When the wearerâ€™s body is below 90 degrees the design on the left is how it will look. When its above 90 degrees the image of Sinatra will disappear and his tie will turn red. I want you all to know this isnt a concept shirt , i will have a fully functional sample printed by this weekend so if you have any interest in seeing it in action come by the shop!”
But of course, seeing is believing. Check out the video below to see the Sinatra tee appear in full glory.

Muerte Cooking Worms by Tolky Monkys.Pros: Fun shirt, if you like funky characters that have a background story than you’ll probably enjoy this shirt as well as the rest of the Tolky Monkys line. The tee features a custom embroidered necktag and comes with a Tolky Monkys hangtag. The shirt was individually packaged in a separate plastic bag within the mailer which is good for keeping the shirt protected during transit. Design is printed on a 100% pre-shrunk cotton tee and features a reinforced cover-seamed collar in Elastano (Lycra/Spandex) for a better fit. The collar, sleeves and lower hem are double stitched.Â Cons: The print was a bit thick and vinyl feeling, but it may become softer after the first wash.Price: â‚¬20 ($28 US)
And here’s a closeup of the character that Tolky Monkys drew for me! Thanks again Tolky Monkys, I think it’s awesome!
IÂ Listen To Bands That Don’t Even Exist Yet by Evan Ferstenfeld and available at Threadless.Pros: Perfect shirt for any pompous music lover. We all know one of those. Get that person this shirt.Â Cons: The print, although looks like a solid colored print in the product shots are not really so. The resulting print looks like what happens when you have a faulty inkjet printer whose head needs cleaning (see gallery photos to see what I mean). I would have preferred just a solid brown colored print for the type.Â Price: $15.
This post has absolutely nothing to with T-Shirts. So, after lunch today me and a colleague, Mr. Andy Dewald, discovered a wonderful site, SketchySantas.com. Inspired by the awesomeness of SketchySantas.com we decided to do a tribute video. The background music is sung by an unknown singer and was given to us by our former (bless his heart) advisor, Dr. Ed Chronicle.
The Sponsor A Zombie video courtesy of the band Mercury Radio Theater is hilarious! It definitely made my halloween. You’ve got to watch the video, it spoofs those charity infomercials brilliantly. The $20 Sponsor A Zombie care package features a picture and letter from your zombie (how amazing is that), a SPAZ T-Shirt , bumber sticker and a Sponsor The Zombie EP featuring the tracks:
Remuse Fashion is a modern, urban based clothing line targeted to the teenage-young adult demographic. Their tees are bight, bold and intricate. Each of the tees are screen printed on American Apparel shirts and range in price from $12.99 to $17.99.

The product description for Records from TopoRanch reads “Topo Ranch figures it might remind you of a time when your inner DJ was first awoken by a record player you received for your 5th birthday.” I actually had a toy record player growing up and I remember loving that thing. I had a bunch of thse “storytelling” records. Do you guys remember those? I also remember having a bunch of promotional ALF vinyls from Burger King! Imagine getting a vinyl with your kids meal. I can’t even fathom that now.
It’s sort of weird. I grew with records because my mom loved them. She had (and still has) a large record collection and I loved being able to choose what record we’d play next. But I grew to favor CD’s and then the mp3. I’ve recently been wanting to experience vinyl once again but every time I think about getting a turntable I do a 360 and head straight back to the digital realm of iTunes. I really think me and vinyl need to renew our relationship with one another.
