I’ve had more dreams about tetris than anything else. For about the first 6 months of my tetris addiction I would slot pieces into the skyline, shelves of soup at the supermarket, my bowl of cornflakes. Everywhere. It was like walking around with an invisible HUD showing an immersive real time augmented reality version of the game.
Then when I went to sleep it was relentless. Every single dream involved trying to slot ‘z’s or ‘s’s or squares into places. They all ended in a borg like cube of blocks littered with gaps – to my shame – caused by my poor play.
Still – this t-shirt is great. I feel another ultimate tetris post coming on!
Music is odd isn’t it. Unpredictable and odd. Gangnam is the perfect t-shirt theme for a present for your dad for Christmas, which is roughly when he’ll find out about Gangnam and learn the dance and think he’s ‘cool’ and ‘international’ and stuff. Make sure you link to the video just in case he hasn’t discovered it during Christmas party season. Otherwise, you know, it could get awkward. Also, this map link could be handy.
There are a stack of other gangnam shirts on sites like zazzle – but we kinda like this one from Busted. We also kinda want to see a version with a subtle hair tweak to make him look like hitler.
Ok. I have no idea what’s going on here. Well, I get the ‘me’ part. But I’m at a loss to explain the black and white background. The upside downness. Or the clashy type.
So yeah – any ideas?
There are a LOT of ‘meh’ t-shirts out there. This is a nerd classic. Even Roy from IT Crowd has one.
It’s the ultimate expression of boredom and lack of interest. We love a meh shirt. Every wardrobe should one. Or two. I have three.
We always find it amusing when the same shirt turns up at different sites. Some put some real work into taking the idea a little further. Some just bang the word on the middle of a black tee using white helvetica. Some take freaky model pics. Some just photoshop onto a bad template. Every ‘meh’ shirt is like a delicate snowflake. The same as the others – but oh so different. To include the . or to omit the .? White on black, or go all radical with colour or add a picture of a sheep (really?). So many decisions.
Some of the pics below are hilariously badly photoshopped. If you are thinking of selling t-shirts on the internets just think for a second wether you’d rather buy from a real photo of a shirt on a person, or a mock up that looks like it was done in MS Paint.
To the list…
So the t-post is a fancy idea. A very fancy idea. A magazine that’s wearable.
When I first heard of this I thought it was insane. The second time I heard about it I also thought it was insane. But now I think it’s only slightly insane. The right amount of insanity. Not too much, not too little.
Also – the new issue is a lovely design. Kind of futuristic space retro line perfection. Who cares about the fancy magazine thing – it’s just a lovely shirt.
Oops – I just broke one of our strict editorial guidelines by using the same word three times twice in the same paragraph. At least it was only twice.
I love the old days. In the old days you made simple choices. And those choices were different. Very different. They blew you up or stopped you dead or sent you sliding. Subtlety be damned.
Wearing this shirt makes a statement. It is both an embracement of technology and a rejection of it. It is a gamers dream and a gamers nightmare. It shows your age and shows your inner child.
Wearing this shirt shows how deep you are. It’s sophisticated. It’s life enhancing and transformative.
Go get it!
Some brands are disjointed and come across as a bit of a grab bag of ideas. Not the case with don’t blow the illusion – aptly enough – who have a brutally consistent feel across the shirts, the store and the blog. It’s all about the photography, and the models, and the mood.
The shirts are an odd combination of unusual cuts and big full colour photography. The main reason we’ve posted them though is the shower curtain backdrop in the photo below. It’s a yellow insanity!
“There are few things funnier than mental illness.”
As statements go, that has to be our most idiotic ever. And now we’re all self conscious and worried that ‘idiotic’ is the wrong side of the line. And now we’re trying to figure out if it’s ok, if not nessecary to be the wrong side of the line while discussing a bipolar joke t-shirt.
Minefield. Absolute minefield.
Anyway – polar bears are cool (pun intended) and probably are a bit moody*.
* We know, there is a world of difference between being moody and being bipolar. It was a self aware joke. Please don’t hate us. And if you do, wait for a manic episode and check if you get the joke**.
** That, too, was a joke.
This shirt will put meat on your chest*.
We love the lo-fi colour in this one. It’s like a ’70s cookbook for your torso – and who wouldn’t want that. The team at QHUIT have a great range right now.
Don’t scroll too far down on the QHUIT range if you’re a sensitive soul though – they have some fruity language and some boobies.
* Note to self – look for a shirt which will put hairs on your chest. It must exist!
Just when you thought you had all the cool star wars t-shirts along comes another. Now – this site is in German. This is great – because it means if you are UK or US based (as google analytics tells us most of you are) this means most people around you won’t have seen this one.
