You’re Weird, We Should Be Friends!

It’s been a while since I last posted about my awesome friends over at Made With Awesome. I’ve been a longtime fan of their hilarious tees. They’ve got some new tees that I haven’t seen before (yeah, I’ve been on hiatus). You’re Weird, We Should Be Friends must become a part of my wardrobe. Seriously, awesome.

Oh, and they’ve got I’ve Just Developed A Theory That Proves I’m Not A Nerd in black? Where the hell have I been?

You’re Weird, We Should Be Friends is available now from Made With Awesome for $25.

Scare Bear: What A Real Life Care Bear Would Look Like

And this is what a real life Care Bear would look like. Angry. ROOOOOAAAARRRRR!

Scare Bear is available now from Society6 for $18.

ASHKAHN: Edgy Prints, Cards, Totes & Tees

I have to admit, it kind of pains me to post that California Love T-Shirt. I’ve got nothing against the state, in fact, San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. However, California is home to … errr, The Lakers. Yes, I am a Laker hater. With that said, I love the name play (shirt is called California Love) of the T-Shirt and I dig how they tweaked the state outline. Cool.

I included the Evolution of the Muff T-Shirt for giggles. And because I can. And because I know there is maybe a pinky full of you who would buy that T-Shirt. Go for it.

The Ashkahn tees designed by Ashkahn Shahparnia are priced at $19 a piece, that’s 41% off the retail price of $32.00. Remember, Fab.com is invite only so if you’re not already a member, here’s an invite from ME to YOU. *Shipping to Hawaii requires an additional $25 per order. Come on Fab, can we get this fixed. It doesn’t cost $25 to ship to Hawaii. I know because I live here!

They’ve also got some really cool pillows and prints for sale. I’m really digging on the bold red “BORING” pillow. Love it.

The Fuchsia is Now

Fuchsia on dark grey. Lovely. I’ve been a fan of Fuchsia ever since I had my first big box Crayola crayons. Remember those? I remember begging for the box of 64 whenever we went shopping for school supplies in my youth. Now, the startup iOS app, PopBooth is all about the color Fuchsia. In fact, they love the color so much that they created a T-Shirt for Fuchsia fans around the world.

While you wait for your Fuchsia T-Shirt, you can grab the PopBooth app for free from the iTunes AppStore. PopBooth is a free photo booth app that turns 4 photos into a photo strip: post to Facebook, send by email, or send REAL photo strips in the mail. Neat! PopBooth is available for the iPhone and the iPad.

The Fuchsia is Now is available for purchase for $16.

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 10 – Purple T-Shirt

If I was a superhero, this would probably be my superhero seal! But what would my super powers be? Rapidly putting on and removing tees isn’t that useful? It would be great if T-Shirts, for me, worked as an invisibility cloak. Put on a T-Shirt and I go invisible. That would be pretty damn cool. So many things that I could do with THAT T-Shirt.

In any case, I again continue my “on vacation” series of Project365 posts. Today I give you the second iPhone Wallpaper of the year. It’s simple and features my favorite color (for T-Shirts) over the last few months – purple!

By the way, tomorrow I’ll be back home in Honolulu and that means we can go back to doing more crafty things! I’m excited!

The T-Shirt 365 project is free of charge, meaning, you can use the materials provided here as many times as you would like. However, I do ask that you DO NOT repost the actual project files on other websites. It would be better if you simply linked back to the particular blog post on my website! It’s good karma for you and it’ll make me super happy to see the linkback!

The goal of the project is to have enough material so that I can make a book encompassing the entire project. If all goes as planned, we’ll have something amazing available in 2012!

Robot Unicorn: Chase Your Dreams

Robot Unicorn might be the greatest iPhone game that I’ve never played (up until now that is). Forget Angry Birds, if you haven’t tried out Robot Unicorn, you MUST stop everything, head over to the Apple App Store and download this magical game. It’s a life changer.

And once your life has been changed, you can buy the official Robot Unicorn T-Shirt from Adult Swim for $18. It comes in both black, and of course, unicorn purple.

Chase Your Dreams fellow T-Shirt lovers.

Smile and My New Found Affinity for Purple

You know that I get excited whenever Glennz Tees releases a new T-Shirt, but today I am doubly excited because Glennz released a purple tee! I’ve been waiting for Glenn to release a purple (or Eggplant if you prefer the American Apparel lingo) for some time now. A quick glance at their shop and you’ll noticed right away that they’re are lacking in the purple department.

Why am I so hot over purple? Well, ever since I started rocking the eggplant colored Rhino Hunter tee from SharpShirter, I’ve kind of been in love. I guess eggplant works well with my skin tone and I am sad that it took me that long to figure that out.

Color aside, the latest Glennz addition is just awesome. Glenn Jones is indeed the master of inflicting the “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” syndrome.

Smile is printed on an Eggplant American Apparel tee and is available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.

Based On A True Story

I would that my life was Based On True Story – a running true story at the very least. And if it were,  then that would mean this shirt would be a true and positive statement, if I were the one to wear it. But what if my life was a fake? What if my life was a lie? I would hope that it was not, but for these people it was. Below is a list of some of the greatest con men in history. To them, this shirt would be one big fat lie.

1. Victor Lustig, the man who sold the Eiffel Tower:

“In 1925, Lustig’s master con began when he was reading a newspaper: an article discussed the problems the city was having maintaining the Eiffel Tower. So he adopted the persona of a government official, and sent six scrap metal dealers an invitation to discuss a possible business deal. Lustig told the group that the upkeep on the Eiffel Tower was so outrageous that the city could not maintain it any longer, and wanted to sell it for scrap. So he sold the Eiffel Tower to one of the scrap metal dealers and took a train to Vienna with the suitcase full of cash. The buyer was too humiliated to complain to the police.”

2. Frank Abagnale, catch me if you can:

“For a period of two years, Abagnale masqueraded as Pan Am pilot “Frank Williams”, to get free rides around the world by dead heading on scheduled airline flights. Later, he impersonated a pediatrician for 11 months in a Georgia hospital under the name “Frank Williams”. He also forged a Harvard University Law diploma, passed the bar exam of Louisiana and got a job at the office of the State Attorney General of Louisiana.”

3. Milli Vanilli, the pop duo who couldn’t sing:

“So the truth was revealed: the Milli Vanilli sound was actually created by Frank Farian featuring the vocal talents of other singers, and Morvan and Pilatus did not sing at all on the records.”

4. Cassie Chadwick, the illegitimate daughter of Andrew Carnegie:

“In 1897, Cassie began her largest, most successful con game: that of establishing herself as Andrew Carnegie’s daughter. She faked a promissory note of $2 million with Carnegie’s signature. The information leaked to the financial markets in northern Ohio, and banks begun to offer their services. For the next eight years she used this fake background to obtain loans that eventually totaled between $10 and 20 million.”

5. David Hampton, less than Six Degrees of Separation from Sidney Poitier:

“Hampton began employing the persona of “David Poitier” to cadge free meals in restaurants. He then persuaded at least a dozen people into letting him stay with them in their homes or to give him money, including Melanie Griffith, Gary Sinise, and Calvin Klein. He told some of them that he was a friend of their children, some that he had just missed his plane to Los Angeles and that all his luggage was on it, some that his belongings had been stolen.”

Based on a True Story is available now from la Fraise for €23 (~$30 US).
