Springfield Still Life

Wow, other than the occasional Threadless sale reminder post, I haven’t really posted about a Threadless tee in a while. What ever happened to Coty Loves Threadless? Hmmm….

In an case, I couldn’t resist posting this tee by Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini. It’s called Springfield Still Life and is an obvious nod to The Simpsons. I remember when this show first came out, I was about 8 years old and in the third grade. It was 1989 and doodling Simpsons characters were all the rage. I can’t believe The Simpsons have endured on TV this long. Then again, why not? It was and still is an amazing show.

Pick up Springfield Still Life from Threadless for the cheap price of $10. Better do so quickly because who knows how long this current Threadless sale will last or how long this tee will be available before it’s sold out.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 6

And my TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment continues – It’s Week 6 and I am officially in it to win it. There’s no turning back at this point guys, because if I did, that would be a big shame. You’ve got me hooked Threadless, slogan making has become an addiction! To see all of my slogans and to vote for them check out my Threadless profile page. Vote for me and I will make you chow mein if ever we meet in real life.


Minimalism is designer speak for laziness.

I really like this slogan, I forgot what the inspiration was – probably some minimalistic design I was admiring. 

Like all good ideas this sentence was thought up in the bathroom.

I think it was something @jeffrey said on twitter that was the inspiration for this sentence. And I have to agree, some of my best ideas were born while I was on the can. Hmmm….

I yawn because they are contagious and not because I’m bored.

Yawns are a very interesting thing. They don’t discriminate. Yawns are the unconscious STD, you pass them on without even knowing it – next thing you know, you’ve got 10 people yawning. What’s the psychology behind yawns? I need to look that up.

I am a part of a group of individuals.

This is something a word snob that I follow on twitter had said: “”group of individuals” is one of the dumbest phrases in the world, and i’ve heard it twice today.” I took it and ran with it. 

I’d like to request a spoiler alert ahead of time.

Spoilers, spoiler, spoilers. I am not a big fan of people that like to look up spoilers and then spread the gospel. These types of people annoy the heck out of me. Keep the spoils to yourselves!

Papers shredders should learn how to recycle.

I’v never really been a big fan of paper shredders. I’m not sure why. I prefer the one-on-one interaction of tearing paper into small little pieces with my bare hands. It’s so much more fun and not as noisy. 

I’ve got world domination on my mind.

I really do (taps fingers ala Mr. Burns).
