Love this Steam Wars shirt from the people at Lolcats, finally they seem to be spreading their wings and producing designs that are not necessarily to do with LOLcats. This shirt is avalable for $15 for the next 3 days, which provides a little more notice that many of the 24 hour t-shirt deals from shirt.woot and the like.
Also, a blast from the past, check out the increasingly inaccurately named Top Ten Star Wars t-shirt list from 2007
Love it, I would vote for John McClane for sure, Yippy ki-yay motherfucker!
Ok, that turned out to be pretty easy but I thought it would be fun, you can get the T-Shirt here. Just found out about this company through my twitter friend sfgirl who also has The Clash of the Titans on DVD The t-shirt company is called Psycho Reindeer and has some great designs which are all $12. I love the video game odyssey below.
How much of a Star Wars nerd do you have to be to love this and want it on a t-shirt? Not just me right? It’s by a guy called Doug Savage and the blog is called Savage Chickens. He does have a t-shirt store, cafe press, and none of the hysterical cartoons on them either.
What do you guys think of Cafe Press, if you’re buying a shirt is it a positive or negative thing? I personally like it when I know something is screen printed, maybe i’m a Luddite.

The secret word today is a six letter word which was the kind of animal that was thrown into a bath in the movie that the t-shirt is from.
So I was lucky enough a week or so ago to see a screening of the new movie Juno which was directed by Jason Reitman, who also directed Thank You For Smoking, and written by deliciously monikered Diablo Cody. Now of course this has been getting a fair amount of publicity because Diablo Cody’s route to writing this hit movie was essentially through a blog she wrote as she worked as a stripper (at pussyranch.blogspot.com which blogger has unfortunately not kept up). Sure that’s a salacious story, but she is also an extraordinary writer IMHO and probably would have made it even if she had started a blog about something as mundane as t-shirts (listen to the Fresh Air interview with Reitman and Cody)
Now before I go down the T-shirt rabbit hole I have to tell you this is a wonderful movie and if you have the means I suggest you head out to the movies when it opens in your area (I think it’s just NY/LA now). The style of the movie reminded me in many ways of a Wes Anderson movie but with more down to earth characters, so quirky but in a believable way. The combination of Reitman’s directing and Cody’s super writing make for an awesome combination. Also as Rex at Fimoculous has already pointed out this has got an outstanding soundtrack.
But the t-shirt connections here are interesting as well. The t-shirt I feature above is of a pregnant Japanese comic book hero called Most Fruitful Yuki, which I hope at some point people can buy. Apparently quite a few different shirts were made up to promote this during the early screenings, including the one below quoting a line that Rainn Wilson delivered as Juno frantically shook a pregnancy test hoping to erase the plus sign.
Even more interesting to me was when I discovered another Diablo Cody
current blog, where lo and behold I find her reviewing T-shirt companies, a woman after my own heart surely, I mean, listen to this.
Here are a couple of shots of Diablo modeling some organic, fair trade shirts from District Cotton
If you want to keep up with Diablo Cody, who seems to change blogs like underwear, you can find her here diablocody.blogspot.com.
Oh and Diablo consider this an open invitation to guest post about t-shirts any time.
Now this is a t-shirt that Dekard out of Blade Runner could have used, better than the Voight-Kampff machine maybe As a bonus i’ll give another $25 gift certificate to the best mashup of this t-shirt and an image of Dekard, post images online and link to them or embed them in the comments, cheers.
Crush3r is actually a kind of evite type service, but clearly a lot cooler, i personally hate evite and am always looking for other options.
I am constantly annoyed by Captcha related web tasks so this shirt rings true and I like how it is constantly challenging those who meet me to prove they are not a robot. I wonder if I can out any closet robots!?!

This could be a whole line of t-shirts, famous movie scenes acted out by crayons. i particularly like this one called color coded criminals, a wonderful homage to one of my favorite Tarantino movies, The Reservoir Dogs (I have the Mr Pink edition of it on DVD). If you haven’t checked out the soundtrack I highly recommend it.
Here’s a selection of t-shirts from Last Exit to Nowhere that specializes is nice subtle t-shirts inspired by brilliant movies. The genius of these t-shirts is that they are jokes that not everyone gets, and being the movie nerd that I am i love that. These are t-shirts that become a secret handshake between those that know and love these films, almost as good as the tees are the quotes that go along with them.
