8-Bit Zombie: Loners & Rebels & Beetlejuice & Ghostbusters

If you’re seeking some vintage awesomeness then I suggest that you head on over to 8-Bit ZOMBIE and check out their latest line tees. They’ve got everything from Pee-Wee Herman to Beetlejuice to The Ghostbusters. How much better can you get? In fact, their newly redesigned website bleeds awesome sauce. It’s full of throwback love for every 80’s kid and then some. I actually got super excited when I first saw the preview images (see last image below). They reminded me so much of Garbage Pail Kids Trading Cards – I was a huge fan of those. In fact, I still have my entire Garbage Pail Kids collection!

My favorites from the new line is twofold. My first instinct led me straight to that amazing Ghostbusters piece. However, when I saw that they did a Neverending Story design, my mind was blown. So good! This new line is basically my childhood printed on T-Shirts. All that’s missing? Maybe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Masters of the Universe designs would have been perfect – but I can always wait until next time.

The new 8-Bit ZOMBIE tees are available now at their online shop for $20 a piece.

TMNT Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael Costume Flip Tee

Okay, we all know that flip tees are a little cheesy, but this might have to be an exception (or not). It’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael flip tee! It’s Raphael from the 1980’s series, which is awesome. Of course, the T-Shirt wearer must exude a lot of cool and some (or a lot) of crude. If you got the previous sentence, then you’re a bonafide 80’s kid. Cheers, to you!

By the way, if you’re a Turtles fan, be sure to read my post on my exclusive trip the Nickelodeon Studios for a special Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Preview event for the upcoming TV show.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael Costume Flip Tee is available now from TV Store Online for $20.95.

The Best Charlie Sheen Drama Quotes and Rants + Sheen T-Shirts

Debauchery, cocaine, and a filthy mouth. And so goes the life of Two and a Half Men star/self proclaimed rock star, Charlie Sheen. Sheen, whose show was recently put on hold and then indefinitely dropped from production, has been going on a tirade the past few days. It’s been quite interesting, actually, to peek into the sordid life that he live. Here of some of my favoriet Sheen quotes/videos/rants from the last couple of days:

From his Today Show interview:

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

On his chest tattoo:

“It’s the banner from the death card that Kilgore [the Robert Duvall character] is throwing on his victims. But also falling from it is the apple from [poet Shel Silverstein’s] ‘The Giving Tree.’ There’s my life. Deal with it. I’m not just my dad. I’m putting up the river to kill another part of me, which is Kurtz. I’m every character in between, save for that little weirdo with his guts strapped in, begging for water. That’s not me. But there are parts of me that are Dennis Hopper. ‘You have the right to kill me, but you do not have the right to judge me.’ Boom. That’s the whole movie. That’s life.”

On his publicist quiting on him:

“Pussy. He’s not allowed to quit, so you’re fired.”

On his dad telling him to seek help:

“My conduct is bitchin’, my condition is perfect.”

On being banned from the Warner Bros. lot:

“Wow, that’s kind of strange given [Warner Bros. Television President] Peter Roth always said it was my show that kept the lights on. Doesn’t matter too much because after Wednesday they’ll have to rename Warner Bros. as Charlie’s Bros. I will fire those clowns and bring in my own team.”

On being on a drug called Charlie Sheen:

On Two and a Half Men creator, Chuck Lorre:

“Defeat is not an option. They know what they did was wrong they are in absolute breach [of contract] I did nothing wrong. I expressed an opinion, I have the first amendment and I have an army marching behind me, to quote Eminem. I put a billion dollars in the studio’s pockets and I put half a billion dollars in Chuck’s pocket. I should of been walking in to massages and hand jobs. Yeah, I said it! [The show’s producers] kept getting up into my grill, kept tell me how to live my personal life.. I’m saying ‘back off back off’ and they wouldn’t. I’m the type of guy who doesn’t hassle anybody…I think everybody’s got a black belt and a gun..so..I don’t get in anybody’s business. I kept asking for that respect and I couldn’t get it, I couldn’t get it. These guys are a couple of AA Nazis and just blatant hypocrites. They just do not practice what they preach it’s so transparent and so sad.”

On being a racist:

“I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona…So you’re telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino.”

On being clean:

“If they do discover my blood to be tiger blood, I hope that nobody will be shocked!”

A letter from Charlie Sheen:

“What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon.

Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.

Remember these are my people … not yours…we will continue on together…”

On Two and a Half Men being shut down:

“Newsflash, I’m special.”

“The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning. My success rate is 100%. I was shackled and oppressed by the cult of AA for 22 years. I finally extracted myself from their troll hole and started living my life the way I want to live it. It’s vintage, outdated and stupid and it’s followed by STUPID people. I hate them violently. They will come at me. Debate me on AA right now. I have a disease? Bullshit. I cured it right now with my mind.”

“I was told if I went on the attack they’d cancel the show. Are they happy with the 5 billion dollars they made off me or do they want 10? I’m not fair game. I’m not a soft target. There’s a new sheriff, and he has an army of assassins.”

“My motto now is either you love or you hate and you must do so violently. I don’t live in the middle anymore. That’s where you get embarrassed. If you love with violence and you hate with violence there is nothing that can be questioned.”

“I’m going to hang out with these two smoking hotties and fly around the world. It might be lonely up here but I sure like the view. I don’t subscribe to any model.”

And of course, it would be remiss if I failed to mention a Charlie Sheen T-Shirt, so check out these fresh new pop-ish themed Sheen tees from La Boutique Genevan. Both shirts are available now for €22.

And then you’ve got these from Donkey T’s, a little more appropriate for the times, hah! Both shirts are available now for $16.

Way, No Way

Before there was How I Met Your Mother, there was Friends. Thing is, I never watched Friends as a teen growing up in the 90’s. I know, I missed out. After falling in love with How I Met Your Mother and because everyone compared it to Friends (even the producers of HIMYM admit that it pays homage to Friends) I decided to give it a go.

It helped that my roommate owns the complete Friends series on DVD. So, about 2 years back I began my Friends education, starting with Season one. I’m currently on Season 5, and I admit, Friends is awesome stuff and I’m a bit ashamed that I missed out on this piece of pop culture growing up.

So what’s the point, you wonder? Well, I found out that there’s a Friends fanatic in the lab that I work at. He claims to have seen every episode from season 4 on at least three times. He likes to ask people random Friends Trivia. He has all of season 5 on his iPhone. Anyway, I overheard him asking some Friends trivia the other day, and surprisingly, I knew the answers (at least up to Season 5). I was stoked, and that actually made me want to watch even more episodes of Friends just so that I could come up with a good trivia question for our Friends fanatic.

The one With All The Thanksgivings was a great episode. Incidentally, that’s where I’m at now and what’s even better is that that episode is breading ground for good Friends trivia. So I came up with a question from that episode that actually stumped him. The question?

What was the name of Chandler’s band in college?

He didn’t get it! And I was so happy.

By the way, you can pick up the official Way, No Way vintage style T-Shirt from the NBC Store for $25. And in case you’re wondering, you can also pick up Friends: The Complete Series Collection from Amazon for $144.99.

The Stig Is Revealed

Top Gear is one of the BBC’s most popular shows, with millions of viewers across a hundred countries. But one thing about the show that has remained a secret for some time now has been the identity of the mysterious driver known only as The Stig.

“The whole point of The Stig is the mystique — the bizarre characteristics he has, the wonderment created about what he might think, feel, do or look like. Kids adore the conceit, and I believe adults, although they know it’s a man in a suit (or is it?) gladly buy into the whole conceit because they find it entertaining.” says Top Gear producer Andy Wilman.

However, because of a lawsuit brought on by HarperCollins, the identity of The Stig is a no longer a mystery. According to HarperCollins, The Stig is actually a 33-year-old driver named Ben Collins. According to Collins’ website, he has raced both Formula Three and NASCAR, and even drove James Bond’s Aston Martin in the latest Bond flick, “Quantum of Solace.”

So what’s Top Gear to do now that The Stig has been exposed? Well, hire a new and unidentifed Stig! At least that’s what they did when the identity of the Stig prior to Collins was revealed in 2003.

Despite the reveal of the white Stig, you can still purchase his T-Shirts from the BBC America online shop. The shirts are priced from $22.98 to $26.98 and I am sure that these will be pulled from the store soon so if you’re a Stig fan, you better pick one of these up soon!

Suck It Trebek: SNL Celebrity Jeopardy Parody T-Shirt

I admit that I no longer watch as much Saturday Night Live as I used to do. In fact, nowadays I tune in mainly to catch the musical act, if it’s a group that interests me. However, there was a time when I tuned in to SNL on a regular basis, when  Sandler, Ferrell, Carvey, Farley and Myers ruled the SNL airwaves.

One of my favorite Ferrell sketches was definitely the Celebrity Jeopardy sketches with “Sean Connery.” See below for some funny clips! The sketch is so timeless that our friends over at NerdyShirts decided to turn it into a T-Shirt! Suck It Trebek is the NerdyShirt homage to the classic SNL sketch.

You can pick up Suck It Trebek from NerdyShirts now for $14.95 (special presale price).

Mr. Tee + I Pity The Font

This shirt received a lot of hype a few weeks back and was well received on a bunch of T-Shirt and non T-Shirt blogs. If you can’t already tell, the shirt is made up of, well, more shirts. The design is simply a bunch of T-Shirts strategically arranged in the form of Mr. T’s head, hence the name, Mr. Tee. Creative? Very. Clever? Absolutely.

Mr. Tee is printed on a light blue Fine Jersey tee and is available now for $20 at Threadless.

108 LOST T-Shirts To Celebrate The End Including 20 You Can’t Buy

Oh you rabid LOST fans. Our favorite TV Show is coming to an end and soon all of our questions will be answered (or will they). Many of you enjoyed my original list of 101 LOST T-Shirts for the Ultimate LOST Fanatic. I received such an overwhelming response with that post that I decided to do a follow up list – it’s LOST T-Shirts Part 2!

This time, I mix things up. Along with some of the T-Shirts that I missed on the original list, I’ve also got a couple of out-of-print LOST T-Shirts. You can never have these shirts, unless of course you beg the maker to do a reprint. I’ve also scoured the net for some LOST Concept Tees, or tees that have never, ever, been printed on a T-Shirt (some will make you drool).

Mac’s Mailbox

If you’re a regular reader of this blog then you know about my passion for all things … MacGyver. And so I was excited to see that the newest tee printed at Glennz Tees was Mac’s Mailbox, a nice homage to the 80’s duct tape making icon. Ever wondered what MacGyver’s mailbox would look like? Well, this is probably the best depiction of said mailbox that you’ll find in InternetLAND. And the best part is that you can buy it and wear it! Mac’s Mailbox is available now from Glennz tees for $19.95.
