TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 7 (February 12, 2010 to February 18, 2010):

If bridges were indestructible, would you still burn them?

Listen to me, youngsters, it’s never a good thing to burn bridges. Never.

I know just enough to be confused.

This was a slogan suggestion from a friend of mine. He seems to be having a “difficult” time with science these days. And so this slogans fits his situation perfectly! But I can definitely relate, hah!

Hallucinations are ok if you’ve got an imaginary friend nearby.

If you’re gonna suffer from hallucinations then why not suffer with a friend nearby – even if it’s an imaginary friend. Who cares at this point!

If baseball is America’s pastime then what’s wiffleball?

Who here plays wiffleball? I never have. Does that make me less of a man?

Science is magical.

Oh good God science is magical. Wow, science, magic and God all in once sentence. Amazing. Hmmm, maybe that should’ve been the slogan instead!

The truth should never be harder than hunting for unicorn.

Because, well, we should always tell the truth ;)

Teleporters will one day deem email obsolete.

At least those Trekkies hope so!

Sheldon Shirts Collection (Big Bang Theory)

I don’t watch the Big Bang Theory religiously (although I should), but I have seen my fair share of episodes. If you’re a fan of the show and you love tees then you’ll most likely have noticed Sheldon’s obsession with geeky, science-y, and comic book type T-Shirts. He must have large closet space to hold his wares.

One enterprising Big Bang Theory fan has assembled a very unique T-Shirt site. The site SheldonShirts.com is a chronicle of each of the nerdy shirts that Sheldon has worn on the Big Bang Theory. They have a fairly sizeable collection and they link to the shirts if they are still available for sale. Pretty neat idea in a I wish I had thought of that sort of way!

“You’ve reached T-shirt Nerdvana! Here at SheldonShirts.com, we’ve collected all the best t-shirts worn by Sheldon and Leonard on The Big Bang Theory, plus Howard’s belt buckles, some shirts we think Sheldon and Leonard should wear, cool stuff seen on the show (Periodic Table shower curtain, anyone?), some of our favorite Sheldon quotes and lots more. Find out where to buy your favorite tee shirts!”

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 5

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 5 (January 29, 2010 to February 4, 2010):

The only chemistry I know is synthesized by Cupid’s arrow.

I was listening to someone talk about biochemistry and this slogan popped up in my head! Would make a good Valentines Day TypeTee, Threadless staff **Wink, Wink**!

CAPS LOCK: for moments when an exclamation point is not enough!

Especially for those who like to write things like FTW! or WIN! – you know these people and you might even be one. Slogans FTW!

65 is the original 140.

OK, you need to be both a web geek and a Threadless geek to get this one. Before Twitter made 140 characters an iconic cultural limitation, OMG Clothing (later to become TypeTees) made 65 characters the max you had to get your thought across. In my opinion, 65 is so much harder to do than 140.

Geeks don’t skip. They tab.

Skipping? Pfffftttt. Real geeks tab.

Moderation is key. Now can I have more advice?

People inherently want more, and more, and more. But the key, no matter what, is always moderation. Want more advice? Knew you would.

Being green is as easy as finding a yellow and blue marker.

Step 1. Find yellow and green marker. Step 2. Color yourself with said markers until your entirely green. And there you go – BAM – GREEN! Now go worry about your carbon footprint.

Optical zoom should be a default feature of the human eye.

Really, it should! If cameras can do it then why not the eyeball! Imagine if you could zoom in and out using your MIND. That would be insane. I want that!

I’m an amateur neuropsychologist. Amateur because I do not yet have a Ph.D. attached to the end of my name (not yet, that is). As such I meet a lot of mentally interesting people with boring wardrobes with whom I conduct various neuropsychological tests on. So to my surprise, my 8:00 am appointment greeted me with a rather cool T-Shirt on. The shirt resembled that of an old school map, but not any old map, it was a map of breakfast.

The battery of tests that I run on individuals typically last about 4 hours. I often go insane during those 4 hours. My 8am’s mysterious breakfast map t-shirt  kept my attention the entire time.

The Perry Mason in me had me on Google as soon as I popped my 8am into the scary big brain scanner device (i.e. fMRI). With the right keywords, Google never fails me. I searched “Breakfast Map Shirt” and I learned that the interesting tee that my 8am had on was a Shirt.Woot tee called BreakfastTopo. The shirt was original sold on Shirt.Woot way back in November 2007. Needless to say, it doesn’t look like Ill be able to get my hands on this wonderful shirt.

Classified: Human

Some of you might remember the Human Ingredients shirt that I posted a few weeks ago. Remember I complained about it being a bit messy looking? Well, it turns out that someone had previously done a similar shirt and guess what – it looks much nicer and a ton neater! Here is RedBubble arttist, animo’s take on the Human Ingredients shirt:

And while I was perusing her store I noticed a couple of other tees that caught my eye, including Classified: Human. This shirt is so uber geeky cool, I love it! I would have definitely put it on my 101 Science T-Shirts list if I had seen it before!

New Math + Funky Equations = Cool Shirts!

Remember the guys from Doubletake Clothing? Sure you do, they released the very popular Bears, Beets, Battlestar… tee early on this year. Well, they’re back. Sort of. This time the masterminds behind Doubletake Clothing has forged a new alliance with author/artist Craig Damrauer, of New Math fame.

“New Math started as an art book which was sold at MOMA and a number of other museum stores and boutiques in the US and Japan. In the fall CT Editions will publish a collection of New Math, edited by Ed Ruscha. New Math has been seen in GOOD Magazine, the New York Times Op-Ed page, Mother Jones and the German Greenpeace Magazine.”

If you haven’t checked out New Math: Equations for Living, I urge you to do so. I just picked up a copy from Amazon for a cheap $9.94 and am excited to see what other equations Craig has cooked up.

As far as the shirts go, yeah they’re simple – they are supposed to be! They retain the “New Math” look and feel as seen in the book. My favorite from the bunch is the Modern Art equation shirt. Isn’t it so true? I think so. For an extra $5 you can even pick up an amazing collectors/gift box. Each of these environmentally friendly boxes features the New Math equation of the shirt.

Sale at The Printed Mind

I’ve always been fascinated by the human brain, how it functions and how we behave as a result. It’s no wonder my day job involves me trying to figure out what’s going in inside the heads of some very interesting people. Because of this I was excited when Levi Hardeman (formerly of Word! Apparel) started his new venture, The Printed Mind. His goal was to start to clothing brand that focused on that marvelous orgran, the brain.

If you want to stock up on brain-filled tees then be sure to check out the current sale at The Printed Mind. They are making room for a new release so it’s the perfect time to get the current stuff at a cheaper price. They have one shirt even marked down to $5.99. Insane!

Human Anatomy Patchwork

You’ll always find something when perusing Etsy, like this handmade patchwork human anatomy shirt! Man, was the second halfof that first sentence a mouthful. Like most other things at Etsy, this shirt is a DIY project done by Etsy member, takeahalliday. And according to the product page, it “is perfect for wearing with leggings, jeans, or if you’re really daring, by itself!” Interested? It’ll set you back a cool $70. I’m thinking that this is one of those “statement” shirts.

Love Is Blind by Reece Ward

For my Master’s Thesis, I researched individuals suffering from migraine aura. If you’re not familiar with migraine aura, it’s basically a migraine that includes visual hallucinations prior to the actual migraine attack. One of the pre-tests that I did on patients, just to make sure their vision was okay was the Ishihara Colorblind Test. And so when I saw this tee, designed by Reece Ward, memories of my Master’s Thesis came flooding back.

I love the concept of Love Is Blind and would definitely wear it in a heart beat. It would be so awesome if I was still giving these colorblind tests to patients. It would probably lead to some interesting conversations! You can pick up Love Is Blind by Reece Ward from his RedBubble store for $24.34.
