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!

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!

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 4 (January 22, 2010 to January 28, 2010):

If MacGyver was in a pickle, he’d probably eat his way out.

Forget duct tape. His teeth would be his greatest asset if ever trapped in a pickle.

Pilates keep pirates busy when they aren’t pillaging.

Nice use of P’s don’t you think? I don’t do pilates but then again, I’m not a bonafide pirate. I wish I was a pirate, though.

I’m sure grass grew fine before humans existed. Save water.

Every morning on my way to work I encounter a man. A man that loves to water his grass. He loves to water his grass a bit too much. He waters his grass a lot. In the morning and in the afternoon. This man should save water.

Strawberry fields forever means one thing: infinite shortcake!

Another Beatles infused theme. I love the Beatles and was listening to this hit when I came up with this slogan. Strawberry shortcake – who’s a fan? I am!

Lycanthropes: always ready for a good costume party.

Ahh, the werewolf. Growing up one of my favorite movies was Teen Wolf with Michael J. Fox. I recently bought the Teen Wolf & Teen Wolf Too DVD ($12 at Amazon) and although the movie wasn’t as “great” as I had remembered it as a 6 year old, I still had a blast laughing at the 80’s.

Evil people cut grass and actually enjoy it.

I’m sure that our favorite serial killer, Dexter (The Complete Third Season, $24 at Amazon), experiences some sort of weird gratification when cutting grass. It’s just a hunch.

Imagine if keyboards actually hit back.

If keyboards actually fought back then things could get nasty, especially since they have over 100 keys on the standard keyboard.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 2

Every day I come up with a new witty Threadless TypeTees Slogan in hopes of earning a Threadless Alumni Club Medal of Honor.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 2 (January 8 2010 to January 14 2010):

Permanent markers: A drunk man’s worst enemy.

Flipping through Facebook I noticed an album of a drunk friend who had unfortunately passed out while his friends were in the possession of permanent markers. Such a shame!

Multi-touch reinvented the way I twiddle my thumbs.

Here’s a slogan for all of you iPhone using people. Now your twiddling thumbs have a purpose – swipe, pinch, zoom like never before!

Even Bigfoot knows that the Abominable Snowman doesn’t exist.

It’s only logical that the Abominable Snowman doesn’t exist, especially if Bigfoot says so. [NOTE: If you voted on this slogan on the past please vote again using this link, the older version had a typo :( a big boo boo for any TypeTees submission.]

I’d sing my heart out but I think that would be kinda painful.

So, American Idol just started and I thought, gee, if I was on American Idol I was definitely give it my all. But to sing my heart out? Come on, that’s a little too much of me to give!

All of my wisdom is tucked away in the corners of my mouth.

So I came up with this logo as I was blogging a little bit. It just popped in my head. I liked it and so it’s todays slogan! This slogan makes me sad because I had my wisdom teeth pulled out, all 4 of em, when I was 16!

There’s no I in TEAM but T, E, A, and M are pretty darn good.

I’m not sure how I came up with this slogan, but I think, I think, that it came to me today when I heard someone on the radio say the famous line, There’s No I In Team. Although there’s no I, I think that the other letters in TEAM are not too shabby. I myself am a fan of T and A. :)

Actually, microphones aren’t small and can’t even make any calls.

Don’t you think the word microphone is a misnomer? I think so. First of all, they aren’t even micro at the very least nor do they allow you to dial out! I want a refund.

Coty’s Thoughts:

If You Wish Upon A Star by Tom Neal and available at Teextile. Pros: Love the shirt, great design! Nice gradient effect, most likely achieved through Direct-To-Garment printing. Printed on an American Apparel blank so you know I like the fit and softness of the shirt. Overall, a solid shirt. Cons: Not tagless. Not many extras here, just a solid shirt, I guess that helps to keep the costs down. Price: $12

Teextile

Make Wellness Not War by I Am Wellness. Pros: Lots of things to love about the package from I Am Wellness. Shirts were individually packaged in plastic to keep out odors and liquids from damaging the shirt. The cut and sew elements, from the custom neck tag to the seam tag on the lowert portion of this shirt was well done, as was the custom hangtag. Included with the Baseball tee (not reviewed here but will be in a future episode) were Bazooka Bubblegum and an Upper Deck baseball card, as well as an I Am Wellness card and sticker. The Make Wellness Not War shirt was printed on an American Apparel Tri-Blend blank, which was super soft, I loved the feel of it and the fit was magnificent. It looks like the I Am Wellness people put a lot of effort and thought into their product and brand. I loved it and I highly recommend I Am Wellness! Cons: What cons? Price: $27.95.

Make Wellness Not War

Meat Is Murder. Tasty, tasty murder. by Stu and available at Threadless. I “got” this shirt but many of my friends did not “get it” (poor souls). And for the record, I am a carnivore and will never, ever, ever, become vegetarian. It’s just not in my DNA. Price: $15.00.

Week 11:

Instead of shouting I prefer to write in CAPS.

Except of course when I am driving. When I drive I yell a lot! Passengers wonder why I yell, especially since the driver that I am yelling at can’t hear me.

You provide the cheese and I’ll provide the grill.

With all of my grilled cheese references you guys should know by now how much I love this American delicacy!

Toilet paper inspires me to be clean.

Doesn’t it inspire you?

I never know when to use apostrophy’s.

I actually do, but I thought this would be a witty entry.

When will mechanical pencils write for themselves?

I love using mechanical pencils! Because no matter what, the tip always stays sharp. No sharpening required. Unless of course you run out of lead. Then you need a back up plan!

The key to life is locked in a safe.

What is the key to life for you? I’m interested to know.

Psssst, wanna know a secret?

I wonder how many people would actually want to know “a secret” if I wore this shirt in public.

Prevent wedgies and go commando.

This is actually the best defense to getting wedgies, and the cheapest! I don’t think that I’ve been the victim of wedgies (it helps being the oldest child amongst siblings and cousins) but I do remember dishing them out!

Organic is the new black.

Indeed everyone and their grandma has decided that going green is the best way to go. And of course it is. It’s even become a fashion statement for some and hence, organic “stuff” is the new black. 

Grapes don’t deserve to be stepped on.

I was trying to decide what beverage to get for lunch on this particular day (I decided on H20) and stumbled upon a bottle of Welch’s grape juice. I instantly thought of @garyvee and then wine. I’m not sure why I thought of @garyvee (I’m excited about his new book, BTW) but as I was thinking about him and I thought about how grapes don’t deserve to be smashed. What have they ever done to us!

Recycle your newspaper and make origami.

Oh, this seriously sounds like fun! Who wants to try?

Milk: It prevents decalcification.

Milk: It does a body good …. and it prevents decalcification! This is true, friends. 

I like to picnic with teddy bears.

Weird, I know. This slogan originated from an ODD status message that I saw on Facebook (not mine). Made it fit the 140 word limit and BAM, slogan. 

There’s no excuse for having no excuse.

There’s isn’t really an excuse for having no excuse. Even better, try not needing an excuse in the first place that way to won’t have to worry about having an excuse for an excuse. I just confused myself there.

My natural glow has been known to make some people blush.

Yes, people have told me that I have a natural glow. But since this is the Internet, you’ll have to take my word.  

My lack of creativity is due to an unmotivated right brain.

Whenever I’m having a day thats lacking creativity I just blame the right hemisphere of my brain. The purveyor of all thing awesome. Stay active, stay strong!

I specialize in the psychology of awesomeness.

The next two “psychology” themed slogans are a result of me working on a two papers on the subject. Universities should seriously offer a course in the Psychology of Awesomeness. What makes awesome people, awesome? Are there brain regions associated with extreme awesomeness? And, of course, what are the fundamental behavioral characteristics of awesomeness? 

Be forewarned: I suffer from selective attention.

I seriously do. If it’s something that I wish to just have fly through one ear and out the other then that’s exactly what will happen. Selective attention, it’s not a choice, it’s an innate characteristic that I possess. 

I believe in Bigfoot, Nessie and world peace.

This is one of the statement slogans. I wish Bigfoot existed so that I could give him a cookie. I wish Nessie existed so that I could snap a pic of her/him and I wish that world peace existed so that we could all live happy and be happy. But of course, we know that Bigfoot doesn’t exist, Nessie was a hoax and world peace, well, until we get rid of religion (among other things) we can forget about that. 

The dog didn’t eat my homework. I just didn’t do it.

It seems that every week I have at least one slogan that highlights my laziness. In truth, I’m not a lazy person – I just wish I could lounge around all day. By the way, I firmly believe in doing homework – it builds character!

Double dipping is negligible contamination.

Double dipping has never really been a big problem for me (unless you have a noticeable cold sore). I’m not sure why people get into such hizzy about it. It’s not a big deal! Or is it?

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 5

I grind rails not coffee.

Oh yes, back in the day, back in my younger days. Now I do neither. Loose leaf tea FTW!

If life’s a beach then I’ve got a sun burn.

I had a great day at the beach, alone, and it was wonderful. Soaked up the sun and enjoyed the Pacific Ocean. Where is your favorite beach? 

Driving a stick shift is like watching TV without a remote, hard.

I’ve tried on numerous occasions to learn stick shift, but I’ve never practiced for a long enough period of time for me to get it. And the question that I post to those that boast driving stick is better is … why? Seriously, would you watch a TV without a remote and get up and go to the TV each time you wanted to change the channel? Probably not. Similarly, why do you want to work for every shift when there are cars that do it automatically? I just don’t get it I guess.

Save the bees: they help keep the world sweet.

Did you know that the worlds bee population is seriously and mysteriously decreasing. This is something that we need to be concerned about because it could potentially mean the end of mankind. No joke. And plus, they help keep the world sweet. A world without sweetness would quite simply be lame. 

As I look at you all I see are a bunch of falling green letters.

This is me trying to be Neo. Imagine for a second how awesome it would be to be The One. If you didn’t get any of those two references then you need to put The Matrix on your Netflix queue right now. 

Babies make the world a better place. Except when they poop.

In all seriousness, babies really do make the world a better place. I was watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I watch Grey’s Anatomy) and it was a sad episode that involved the death of young child. Such a downer. Coming up with this slogan made me smile again. 

Laughter makes me do the happy dance.

Comedy is such a great thing. About two weeks ago I started watching Arrested Development on DVD and absolutely love it! Such a great show. Terrible shame that it was canceled – damn you FOX!

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 4

Fact: I am faster than 100 percent of all snails.

Hmmm, this is a variation of a quote from The Office that I actually saw on a friends Facebook page. I changed the snakes to snails and 80% to 100% and called it a day. 

If all men became priests then humanity would go extinct.

This one came from roommates brother who said something similar (but not as good, lol).

Sketchbooks are to humans as corn fields are to aliens.

This is so true, right! Humans draw in sketchbooks and aliens take it a step further and fly to another planet and sketch on corn fields. On a separate note – I’d love to meet a bona fide alien, if you know one then hook me up.

I’m only lazy when I am awake.

I certainly felt like it on this particular day, probably because I was preparing a presentation on cognition and brain damage and I was pretty tired. In the end, the Keynote came out to over 100 slides (my slides consists mainly of images and slides with only a few words) and the presentation was super!

Sometimes I just sit alone, scratch my head and wonder why.

Yeah, this is me being emo. Probably because of the reasons I explained above.

An eye for an eye will only result in partial blindness.

Oh Mr. Gandhi was such a great dude – but he got this one wrong. An eye for an eye will only result in two guys with partial blindness. Stay away from the eyes! And be good people!

I only fall down for the push ups.

I tested this one out with a friend and he didn’t get it. His loss!
