8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day T-Shirt? This 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt might be just what you’re looking for you, especially if you and your significant other loves video games. When the both of you are wearing this interactive tee and within hugging distance then all six pixelated hearts will light up. Likewise, when apart, your heart level will drop down to just two and a half hearts. Awww, how cute.

Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero… you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we’ve determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don’t understand? Well luckily for you we’ve created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.

Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000…). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey… you’re depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you’re fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you’ll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?

The 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt is available now from ThinkGeek for $17.99.

Faces of Death 2010: A Collection of Popular Deaths

This T-Shirt by Milton Carter is a bit grim if you think about it, but I am sure that it is all in good fun. Some might even think of Faces of Death 2010 as an homage to some of the celebrities that we looked up to. The T-Shirt features a wide collection of celebrities and pop culture icons who passed away in the 2010.

The T-Shirt features “a collection of recently dead celebrities ranging from cultural lumiaries (Lousie Bourgeois, Dennis Hopper, Alexander McQueen, Lena Horne, J.D. Salinger) to musical greats (Guru, Ronnie James Dio, Alex Chilton, Solomon Burke, Malcolm McLaren) to pop culture icons (Tony Curtis, Corey Haim, Jimmy Dean, Gary Coleman, George Steinbrenner).”

Faces of Death 2010 is available now from Milton Carter’s Etsy site for $20.

The concept of a The Faces of Death T-Shirt originates way back in 1997, when M. Carter published an image of the deceased from the year (1997) in a zine called Gank. The series then continues in 2002 when Carter screen printed a T-shirt featuring 2002 deaths in his kitchen. Following 2002, Carter went on to make versions of Faces of Death for 2009 and 2010.

I actually think these are pretty neat. It is at the very least an interesting way to remember people that we may have admired. Below you’ll find some images from the 1997, 2002, and 2009 versions of Faces of Death.

I’m Fat Let’s Part + Zombie Dinosaur!

Our good friend David Murray of Seibei just released two new (and awesome) tees! I’m a big fan of Seibei and will probably be ordering at least one of these tees in the near future. My navy and white Sandwich Dinosaur tee is getting a little worn out so I think it might be time to upgrade to the brand spanking new Zombie Dinosaur design.

Although I never grew up as the prototypical fat kid, there was a time when I was referred to as being husky. Husky, hmmmmmm. Is that code for fat? Probably. And as such, I’d be proud to wear the new I’m Fat Let’s Party Shirt.

Both of the new tees are available now for sale at Seibei for $22. Also, word on the street is that Seibei will be unleashing a brand spanking website redesign. I’m excited to see what he has in store for us.

You Are The CSS To My HTML

I spotted this tee over at ATshirtBlog.com and it was too awesome to pass up posting here. I thought I’d spread the love for this Pop + Shorty designed tee a bit further. Buy this for any web designer and I guarantee that it will make their day! I hardly ever make guarantee but this tee is guaranteed to impressed even the most grouchy designers.

You Are The CSS To My HTML is printed on an Athletic Grey American Apparel Tri-blend tee (this shirt is OMG soft) and is available for purchase now at the Pop + Shorty store for $25.

Red Riding Hood

I’m typically very critical when it comes to all-over-prints. I’m just not a big fan of them. But this tee by shantyshawn and available at Design By Humans is the exception to that rule. I actually really dig it and love how the red pops against the black and white backdrop. It’s available now for purchase for a cool $25. 

Although the earliest known print of this story originates from 17th century French folklore, and was included in the 1697 collection, Tales of Mother Goose by Charles Perrault, it’s the Brothers Grimm version that we have come to know and love. You see, in Perrault’s version, there is no happy ending. The wolf eats both little red riding hood and her grandmother and there is no happy ending. In the Brothers Grimm version, a hunter saves little red riding and her grandmother and then drowns the wolf. Such dark undertones for a child’s story, don’t you think?
