Et Tu, Threadless?

As anyone who’s met me in person can attest, I’m kind of a t-shirt junkie.

What can I say, I like carrying portable art.

Anyway, the site that got me started on this trend, and one that’s been a favorite of mine for ages, is Threadless.

Every Monday or so, myself and Ross tend to talk up the new designs, and for the most part lately, I’ve been very disappointed.   Hell, I hadn’t even been interested in a shirt for months.

This week though, I’ve found not one, but three separate designs that I really like.

So I click the links to check them out….and their prices have jumped up from $15 for everything to $17+. What the hell, guys, what happened?  Isn’t an increase in sales/exposure supposed to trickle down to lower prices for the consumer?

Color me miffed.

I Heart Paul Robertson

About a year ago, I saw Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006. A 12 minute homage to the 2d side scrollers we played as kids, the animation was the work of a lone man in Australia, Paul Robertson.

Just a few days ago, he returned with his follow up…

To end your weekend (or start your week) on the right foot…

Here is Kings Of Power 4 Billion %!!!

I Sit Corrected.

Damn Target, why you gotta make me angry.

Seems just 24 hours ago, I was telling all the boys how I loved you, how you brightened my day with your sweet t-shirts and free video games.

Then I hear from my boy that you’ve been lyin’.  You’ve been runnin’ tricks on me.

You get me all hot ‘n bothered with promises of sweet garments and free gaming, then you pull the rug out on me?

What’s the deal, baby girl? What did I ever do to you?

Guess I’ll have to see what that Hot Topic chick or that girl Urban Outfitters is up to.

And…

<Scene>.

Short story long, those sweet EGPApparel game/shirt combos? ALREADY BEING PULLED OFF THE MARKET!  Et tu, Tar-jay. Et tu.  Guess we’ll see if another retailer picks this program up, it really is a great idea. Shame.

X-Files 2 Poster Is…Cryptic!

Fresh from Ain’t It Cool News, here’s our first look at the poster for the 2nd X-Files movie, due out in theaters on July 25th.

We got a giant X…we got obscured Scully and Mulder…we still don’t have a title…overall, I like it, though.

I do wonder, has it been so long that the general public may think this is for the next X-Men movie? Food for thought.
