It’s been a while since we last saw a Stars Wars parody tee from T-Shirt favorite, Glenn Jones. Well you no longer need to hold your breath because Glenn delivers yet again with his newest tee, Be Good. Who’s that holding the lightsaber, you ask? Well it’s our favorite extra terrestrial from the 80′s, E.T. Yoda, you better watch out.
I’m not the biggest fan of the zombie/gore genre, especially when the shirts take themselves too seriously. Parody shirts, however, I am a fan of. This tee by ShantyShawn melds two of my favorite things, Star Wars and parody designs. The fact that the characters have been turned into freakish zombie types, doesn’t really bother me too much. I think the new look gives Darth Vader some character.
“If you thought the Empire was evil before, now theyâ€™re undead and hungry for some rebel flesh. If you love zombies and Star Wars, then this is a must have for your wardrobe. Your Jedi friends will be sooo jealous!”
So I was checking out the Reckoning at Shirt.Woot and I stumbled on two awesome tees. The first of the two is currently at the top of the reckoning at it pretty much blew my mind, like all other Chuck Norris memes seem to do. The shirt is called Chucknorium and is a parody of the very popular (on the web at least) Periodic Table of Elements. If you’re a science geek and you heart the omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent Chuck Norris, then you’ll definitely love this shirt.
The second tee will appeal to any Science Fiction geek with an appreciation for fine typography. The shirt is called @-@ and was designed by Threadless veteran David Staffell. David did a great job at re-imagining the All Terrain Armored Transport, more popularly known as AT-AT’s, from the Star Wars Universe. If Glenn Jones from Glennz tees were to somehow have his design genes combined with Jeff Sheldon from Ugmonk, something like this would be the result.

What could be more depressing than a sad Stormtrooper? A sad Stormtrooper with tears! Nowhere on the product page do they make any mention of this being a Stormtrooper from the Star Wars franchise, but, don’t you think it looks like one?

What’s awesome about the first NerdyShirts NerdyShort is not necessarily the short itself, but the fact that it was shot entirely on an iPhone 3G S! How cool is that! I’m a fan of compact video making so I cannot wait to pick up and try out the new iPhone 3G S video features. My only wish was that it could shoot in HD ala the Flip Mino HD. Maybe in the next iteration? Maybe.Â
And finally from NerdyShirts I’ve got their newest tee, it’s called Who Writes This Stuff and is based on a shirt from the new Adam Sandler/Judd Apatow flick, Funny People. If you were this shirt I guarantee it will strike up conversation. Whether you want that or not, well, you decide! It’s available for presale now at NerdyShirts for $14.95. Â
These two new tees from The Dept. are absolutely wonderful! Like the rest of the line they feature the ubiquitous The Dept. Android. The tees, like the brand itself, is highly influenced by Star Wars design and I’m not complaining! The Android character simply makes me smile – I am a fan!Â
