Warning, this next sentence will sound very bad to many of you and I apologize in advance. I have never watched a single episode, or even a seen single frame of anything Dr. Who related.
There, I said. Does that make me a bad person? Probably. Especially since I like to think of myself as someone that stays on top of all thing pop culture related.
Shame. On Me.
OK, now that I’ve got that off of my back, let’s talk a little bit about this “soon to be gone” gem from TeeFury. The shirt is called Who’s Who and it features all 11 incarnations of Doctor Who on a single T-Shirt. The shirt, which will only be available for 24 hours TODAY (and at the time of this post, there is just 18 hours left) is available for sale now at TeeFury for just $9. Rad. Even though I have no connection whatsoever to Dr. Who. You might then wonder “Rad? How so?” How is it that someone who has no connection to Dr. Who would consider a Dr. Who shirt rad. Well, it’s all in the process. And designer Ian Leino shared some of the process that went into making Who’s Who. The amount of research and though that he put into this one T-Shirt design is pretty fucking rad and well worth 9 bucks.

“Who’s Who combines my love of Dr. Who with my fond remembrance of high school and college stunts to show what would happen if ALL ELEVEN incarnations of the Doctor tried to cram into the TARDIS at the same time.”
“The first stage for almost any of my work is to do some deep research into the project. For this design, I wanted to ensure that I got all of the details right for each Doctor including facial mannerisms and costumes, so I pulled lots of reference images.”
“As much as possible, I tried to use existing photos as references for the Doctors’ expressions, but for a few of them I just couldn’t find the look I needed. For those, I took reference pictures of myself and used those as a positioning guide to be able to draw their features into the expressions I needed. Once I was happy with their likenesses, I combined them with my earlier sketches in Photoshop, then printed out the new image and took it to my lightbox for inking.”
“Now that everything was drawn, I combined the two inked images in Photoshop and after much tinkering was able to get the palette down to 5 colors for printing. I separated the colors, prepped the file, sent it in to TeeFury and if you like it, now you can wear it on your body!”

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 ofÂ eggs benedict if ever we meet in real life.
Week 6 (February 5, 2010 to February 11, 2010):
Whenever I make scrambled eggs, I like to beat em and whip em into submission. Don’t get in between me and eggs.
I never was a big text-er. I prefer speaking. In person.
Of course they would be! They excel at covert espionage … Hide and Seek would be childs play for a seasoned Ninja! RAWR!
And that’s the only way you’ll ever get ME to be your scapegoat.
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?
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.
Why? Because ninja stars are rad – that’s why!

First off, no, Ctl Alt Defeat is not the name of some emo indie band. It’s actually the name of a new T-Shirt brand by T-Shirt contest regular, Tom Neal. Ctl Alt Defeat is touting itself as a limited edition T-Shirt site. Essentially, they will be printing one design in limited quantities and, when the design sells out, they will go ahead and print the next shirt.
The problem with this particular business model is: what happens if the shirts don’t sell out? And, how limited are the shirts, exactly? In any case, I am interested to see future designs from Ctrl Alt Defeat. T-Shirt designer extraordinaire, Greg Abbott, kicks things off at Ctrl Alt Defeat with Remote. I have to wonder, will this particular design be the look and feel of future Ctrl Alt Defeat designs or will Ctrl Alt Defeat just be a hodge podge of different artist works with no real distinctive look and feel? In any case, you can pick up Remote by Greg Abbott from Ctrl Alt Defeat for Â£14.99.

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
