Oh my, it’s been way too long since I’ve mentioned our good friends over at Found Item Clothing. Macho Slut, I hope that you are doing well! With that said, all of you 80′s kids MUST check out this 8-Bit Karate Kid T-Shirt. It’s A-W-E-S-O-M-E. It’s a Mortal Kombat x Karate Kid Mashup. The Brits would call this one brilliant. And I’d have to agree with them.
A few days ago I reviewed the 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt from ThinkGeek. I really dug that tee, however, if you’re looking for something a bit more fancy or Geek Chic then look no further than LIFE by Matt Leyen. This cardigan is so understated, relaxed, and cool. You’re a gamer, but you’re not screaming hardcore gamer when you use this cardigan. I admit, this cardigan is sexy.
Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day T-Shirt? This 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt might be just what you’re looking for you, especially if you and your significant other loves video games. When the both of you are wearing this interactive tee and within hugging distance then all six pixelated hearts will light up. Likewise, when apart, your heart level will drop down to just two and a half hearts. Awww, how cute.
Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero… you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we’ve determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don’t understand? Well luckily for you we’ve created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.
Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000…). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey… you’re depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you’re fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you’ll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?
People will either LOVE this T-Shirt or they will consider it an eye sore. I actually really dig this blue and yellow stripped T-Shirt from Fangamer. Long time video game fans will recognize this T-Shirt from the role-playing video game series created by Shigesato Itoi for Nintendo, EarthBound. Naive onlookers might mistake you for a very intense Michigan fan. Hey, I too was a fan of The Fab Five.
This T-Shirt is not about Michigan or The Fab Five. It’s about old fashioned video game goodness. And if you are about to recognize the origin of this T-Shirt then you owe it to yourself to OWN it. Now.

It’s Summer Sale Week at one of my favorite online tee shops, Glennz Tees! All T-Shirts are now priced at $13.95 until Midnight Sunday August 7.

Yes, it’s true. I am addicted to Angry Birds. I guess the first step is admitting it, right? In all honesty, I’ve finished the game but the problem now is that I am trying (with much difficulty) to get triple stars for each level. I know, it’s a little OCDish, but what’s a guy to do while waiting for Angry Birds 2 to come out?
And just to prove to you that my Angry Birds quest is real, here are screenshots from worlds 1 and 2. As you can see, all triple stars in both worlds! Who’s boss? I’m boss. Now, how about the other 13?!
Of course, the T-Shirt connoisseurs at NerdyShirts know that millions of people share my addiction. What to do? Sell Angry Birds shirts of course! The Angry Birds shirts are available now at NerdyShirts for $23.95 a piece.
You can file this under the category labeled bizarre. Yu Kobayashi is a Japanese actress that is best known for her voice, which has appeared in video games such as Ar tonelico III, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and the feature film adaptation of Animal Crossing. What’s bizarre is that she decided to create some scribbles that look like they came from someone who was high on acid. And the worst part is that this isn’t a joke product, Kobayashi is actually selling her design in tote and T-Shirt form. If you’re crazy enough to be even remotely interested in this, then you deserve to spend the $63 that it will cost you to own these two products.
Would you buy this T-Shirt/Tote combination pack? Would you wear this T-Shirt?
Our pal Glenn Jones from Glennz Tees is holding one his popular sales, which doesn’t happen all that often. So what does this mean? This means that you need to head on over To Glennz Tees, scope out your favorite designs (if you’re a regular reader of this blog then you should have a couple of Glennz Tees already in mind) and add them to your shopping cart because everyone knows that these tees will go fast.
True Story: A couple of months back, Glennz was holding a similar sale. I really wanted Office Chat, but decided that it worth waiting for until the last day of the sale. Wrong move! The shirt was sold out in my size. Bummer! Don’t let this happen to you.
In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear FFB Fancy by Fur Face Boy and review Super Doctor Hazmat by Doctor Hazmat, a super fun brand from Brooklyn, New York, that takes the mad scientist theme to the next level. Doctor Hazmat is a mad scientist that just loves to keeps hazardous materials in his lab. And sometimes when things go awry, crazy creatures and monsters are created, like M.A.C., the doc’s crazy robotic assistant.
Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Super Doctor Hazmat by Doctor Hazmat.Pros: So much to love about Super Doctor Hazmat! First of all, I really dig the retro throwback 8-Bit style. It instantly brought me back to my childhood of playing Super Mario Bros. on my NES for hours at a time. For me, great shirts tend to bring back nostalgic memories and Super Doctor Hazmat definitely did that. Doctor Hazmat uses American Apparel blanks, so I had no issue when it came to the T-Shirt itself, it was very soft and had a comfortable fit. The print on this tee is HUGE and the design works perfectly as a large print. The shirt features a 5 color print that is not only large but also quite soft. You’ll also find that the tee is tagless and features a custom screen printed neck label instead. Also, on the back of the tee you’ll notice the Doctor Hazmat seal of approval.
Suggestions: Doctor Hazmat is a brand new brand, and so it’s no surprise that all of the focus for this initial released was poured into the part that mattered the most – the T-Shirt (this is a good thing). However, this leaves a lot of room to do some crazy fun things for future releases. I’d love to see custom packaging (fun, whimsical, colorful) to go along with the very loud T-Shirt designs. You could do some really crazy things, theme wise, with Dr. Hazmat. Just step into any science lab and you’ll be swarmed with tons of potential ideas (this is great for the theme). Also, another professional touch that could potentially be added later would be a hang tag. Again, this can be done in a variety of creative way. For instance, instead of a “hangtag” per se, he could use something similar to the Hazard sticker that is often found on the door of any science lab. So many great possibilities, I really look forward to seeing what Doctor Hazmat does in the future!

FFB Fancy by Fur Face Boy.Pros: It’s been 9 straight episodes of Fur Face Boy goodness and so I think that it’s safe to say that I now have Fur Face Boy in my blood. I can’t say how much I’ve become a fan of this brand. Fur Face Boy is meticulous, detailed, and retro but current enough to be interesting for consumers. Most importantly, with every single Fur Face Boy T-Shirt that I’ve worn and that I have reviewed, I can just feel the passion resonate from each piece. A little piece of Ha Mai (the Fur Face Boy Founder) can be felt with each and every one of his T-Shirts. Trust me when I say that when you order a tee from Fur Face Boy, you will not just receive a tee, you’ll receive a tee made with love and a detailed eye. Much respect.
