I may have featured this before. But if you’ve got me in some sort of Secret Santa thing, or just want to buy me a Christmas present that I’ll enjoy… you could do worse than this XKCD special.
And on the back…
Made in the Now is seriously cool. They turn around a T-Shirt design a day, based on current quirky news events from around the globe.
Here’s a few samples.
The other day scientists invented a new lighter than dandelion substance…
Here’s the shirt.
Here are a few more…
I like this one, which was released when Rebecca Black put our her second single (you know she’s got a third out now…)
This is the one about an Amish beard cutting rampage recently.
Each shirt is only available for 24 hours.
Sadly, they’re a little expensive (at $40 a pop).
Brilliant. For a bit of pirate chatter/an explanation/product details check out the post on the woot.com blog.
Sadly Woot.com shirts aren’t available all year round, almost worth subscribing just in case it comes up again.
The other day I tracked down ten health benefits of caffeine for a post I wrote on thebeanstalker.com – 10 majestic pieces of scientific proof that drinking coffee is good for your health. Caffeine is good for you. And that article proves it.
So, here’s a shirt to go with it, a nice play on the Rick James sketches from the Chappelle Show.
You can get it here.
So, hands up if you want to be a breakdancer? No, too busy busting a move all over those polished floorboards hey…
Apparently breakdancing is one of the four components of the hip-hop lifestyle – so says one of my friends when I asked what the difference between rap and hip-hop is. The answer “rap is something you do, hip-hop is a lifestyle”… the other two components (in addition to rap and breakdancing) were, from memory, graffiti and DJing… anyway… if the above shirt (one of my favourites) doesn’t do it for you, perhaps you’ll appreciate this list of breakdancing moves on wikipedia. Seriously. Hundreds of them.
“Coffee Grinder/Helicopter: Go down on one bent leg standing on your toes with your hands on either side of your bent knee. Other leg is lying flat out on the floor beside you. Swing the leg that’s on the ground. To avoid being hit by your swing leg; you pick up your hands and put them back on the floor, then use them to pick the rest of your body up lifting it over your swing leg. Drop your body and repeat.”
Here’s an assessment of your personality on that basis. I have a Muse Shirt. I’ve liked them since 2002. So there. All you bandwagon jumpers and kiddies…
This is both funny, and true.
“I have a T-shirt problem: after years of buying them, my house is now full. Whilst recently trying to tidy up the situation I realised that I was subconsciously categorising them. As with everything on the internet, it ain’t a ‘thing’ until it’s visualised in an infographic. “
