Weekly Recap and Linkology | May 21, 2010

Sorry about missing the Linkology post last week. I was too busy preparing for all the LOST madness that was posted this past week! Please forgive me.

Around This Blog:

This past week has been ALL ABOUT LOST! And of course the best way to celebrate the last week and final two episodes of one of the greatest shows ever on television is by having an epic list of T-Shirts!

108 Lost T-Shirts, Tees, Shirts, T's

If you haven’t checked out Damon Carlton And A Polar Bear then you are missing out on some of THE BEST LOST T-Shirts around. I’m not kidding.

I ran a short, flash contest that only last 5 hours. All you needed to do was write a LOST themed haiku and you could have won Constant, a LOST/Back To The Future mashup tee from Teefury. There were nearly 40 haiku entries! These two won the T-Shirts:

“Waaaaaaaalt! Waaaaaalt! Waaaaaaaalt! Waaaaaalt! Waaaaaaaalt!”
Now take a deep breath, Michael.
“Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALT!”

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!

4 New Tees From Loiter Ink

Loiter Ink released 4 new tees over the weekend, all of which were designed by freelance illustrator and graphic designer, Tom Burns. All 4 shirts are priced at $17 and feature simple single color prints. Strangely, I like that insanely bright yellow Hitchhiking tee. It made me think about what the Web 2.0 equiivalent of Hitchhiking is. I would have to say that adding random people that you really know nothing about to your Facebook inner circle is the closets thing to hitchhiking in the web 2.0 age. What do you think?

Nike Unveils Witness MVP Tee

LeBron James has been a beast this season and this has no doubt been his most impressive season to date. Nike has released the official LeBron James Witness MVP tee to celebrate his MVP season. I have to admit that I’ve been one of those LeBron skeptics since he first left high school and jumped straight to the league. But this season, something about his demeanor, confidence and team play impressed me. And I admit, despite not being a Cavaliers fan, that I am witnessing one of the most electrifying athletes to ever play the game of basketball. This MVP was well deserved .

The Witness tee is available now for $30 and the the Zoom LeBron VI MVP Edition will be available on May 30 for $150.  

Are any of you keeping up with the NBA playoffs? Who are you cheering for?

Pre Computers by Glennz Tees

This is the newest design from Glennz Tees and it doesn’t disappoint! Glennz Tees founder, Glenn Jones, never fails to impress me with the wit of his designs. This particular design, Pre Computers, brings us back to the days when interacting with other humans for fun and enjoyment was the norm. When sport was an actual physical activity not just twiddling of thumbs. The design is printed on a royal blue American Apparel tee and is going for $19.95.
