The T-Shirts

Random Thoughts For The Wolf T-Shirt Phenomena Friday July 10, 2009

I’m pretty sure I posted about this before, but the Wolf T-Shirt Phenomena (NSFW-ish) is one of the funniest Internet memes around.

We’ve all seen them around. From the hangers of tacky Banff gift shops to the shoulders of people from the wrong side of the tracks. Yes, the Water colored black Wolf T-Shirt is clearly something to behold in the world of T-Shirt design.

Anyways, I stumbled upon this gem from Threadless that just kicks the whole concept up a notch. Yes, it really is a t-shirt of Hotchicks with beer and flamethrowers on wolves. Does it get any better than that?

First – Yes, I’m on a bit of T-Shirt kick again, so you will all have to humor me. But this is another gem from Threadless.

Freakanaut - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

Second – I for one, Welcome the Trans-Pan-Arctic-Alberta Monorail with open arms … monorail … monoRail … MonoRAIL … MONORAIL! MONORAIL!

ThirdObama Plus Ovechkin equals Crazy Delicious. Love that Obama knows about the greatness of Alexander.

Fourth – Spin Magazine (By the way, does any one actually read spin any more?) has released it’s list of Canada’s Top Ten Bands.

While you can’t argue Neil and RUSH, but adding Broken Social Scene and Stars is a bit iffy. It’s sort of like adding Massive Attack to your Top Five Side One Track Ones of all time. (via. drewmac)

FifthInteresting and kinda shocking story about the proposed move of the Calgary Farmers Market to the Heritage Area. Sounds like a very odd little group governing our city’s best collection of incense and fresh food.

Sixth – Fascinating evidence that both Rob Corddry and John Cusak actually know each other.

Seventh – Not that my paternal instincts are kicking in or anything, but this photo of newborn Marlo from Dooce is hysterical.

It could be the best crazed baby eyes photo I’ve seen since this little guy.

Eighth This over whelming NIMBY attitude eating up Calgary is driving me absolutely bonkers.

Ninth The Polaris Music Prize short list was announced this week … But you’ll all have to wait till I bitch about this in a full post next week.

Random Thoughts For Salt in The Wounds Friday January 30, 2009

This is probably bad karma to point out, but as a diligent Flames fan I have to rub salt in the open wounds of our brothers to the north, whenever I get a chance.

So on wednesday, The Fan 960 released this beautiful musical parody of Lola, for the Oilers faithful to honor their 10-2 drubbing at the hands of the lonely Buffalo Sabres. Better yet someone at calgarypuck.com has gone ahead and fused it into a YouTube video to take it to a more visual level.

This was a debacle of monumental proportions.

Best Friday morning video ever.

First – GoMedia has officially trumped the Obama/RUN DMC T-shirt for Best Obama Swag – with it’s very own Obama Skate Deck

Second – Nice Job Threadless. Now you’re finally starting to get back on track with quality T-shirts. Well done Threadless.

Third – Holy Wow! Holy Wow! T-Shirt Hell has closed it’s doors and the owner has left one helluva good bye message By no means is the Safe For Work, but it’s damn hilarious. (via. Techcrunch)

Fourth – The Ten Best Halftime shows of all time (via. SI.com)

Fifth – Lebron James is a Space Alien. It’s true read about this man’s incredible physique in Sports Illustrated’s latest issue

Sixth – Forbes has created a list of the top 100 companies that will survive the next 100 years. Of the top 100 only four are Canadian.

If you’re curious Nortel, RIM and Armadillo Studios don’t make the list. Albeit the Armadillo Studios one is an obvious oversight. I will be emailing a strongly worded email to Forbes later this week, with excessive punctuation, cross eyed emoticons and bad grammar. That should fix them up.

But EnCana, TD and the Royal Bank do make the list.

Random Thoughts For A Missing #YYC T-Shirt Friday October 17, 2008

So If YVR and LAX get’s their own Airplane Code T-shirt, where’s the love for YYC?

Come on people lets band together and think of some ideas for Calgary! Civic pride people!

First – Like Really? Totally! Sabrina is so LC! But McCain is such a Fossil! Totally!The cast of Gossip Girls fires off a commercial for the Obama Overlord

Second – Liquid comics is is gearing up to give some classic Indian Folklore the 300 Treatment. (Via Anand’s facebook)

Third – Continuing on with this whole comic book/movie adaptation story line, it looks like Marvel is still moving full steam ahead with plans to roll out an Avengers movie for 2011.

I still can’t wrap my head around this concept. Because realistically, pulling this colossal adaptation off would be a feat of epic proportions.

Let’s just look at the casting of the first two Avengers (Iron Man & The Incredible Hulk). That means that you have to convince Robert Downey Jr. & Edward Norton to team up … Next you’ve got to get the stars/actors of the new Ant man Movie (Seriously? Ant man), the upcoming Thor movie, and the proposed Captain America movie all to commit to the same movie … Yeah, good luck.

Fourth – Remember three years ago when people were totally up in arms and all like, Rupert Murdoch, you just bought MySpace for 580 Million Dollars! You are such a ninny Mr. Murdoch!

Well it’s three years later and with an estimated value of 3-20 Billion, it looks like Rupert Murdoch was a freaking genius.

Fifth – Boing! Boing! is proclaiming that in Tuesday’s election Canada voted in 32 new fair Copyright MPs into the house of Commons. While I’m sure this is great news for Canada, I have a feeling these canadates were chose for the constituents for more than just their support of Bit Torrents and free usage of Music.

Sixth – More from Boing! Boing! – It’s the Dictator Birdhouse

Seventh – How is the fact that Colin Powell tried to break dance, justification that he’s going to support Obama?. Seriously, does that mean if I do the Jitterbug at a seniors home does that mean I support McCain.

Eighth – Speaking of McCain … Don’t look now but it’s Dramatic McCain.

Nine – Wow, I seem to be on either a film news round up roll or my man crsuh for Robert Downey Jr. has taken a shot in the arm. Either way here’s news of the new Guy Ritchie adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, staring Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock and Jude Law as Dr. Watson.

I’m sorry, but that is the best casting call since Alan Cummings was cast as NightCrawler.

Tenth – In the footsteps of Facebook, Flickr has redone it’s user’s main page.

Eleventh – With Seattle playing in Tampa Bay (subsequently my two favorite NFL teams facing off in one night) this Sunday, I have to throw this out there. But the excuse that NFL Teams don’t travel well or deal with Time Zone differences is ridiculous.

Let’s think about this. Football teams play once a week. (not three-four times in six days) For away games the team usually arrives three to four days before kickoff. Yes, I know three to four days. Stressful. Not 10 -15 hours like your typical NHL team, but 4 days.

How can paid analysts use this small logistical hick-up as an excuse for a team of 60 200+ pound athletes for screwing-up their weekly job. It blows my mind.

Twelfth – P.s. SEAHAWKS 4 LIFE.

I Heart Helvetica Wednesday October 8, 2008

From the Rumplo T-shirt blog, it looks like American Appareal is releasing the entire Alphabet printed on T-Shirts in Helevetica.

Hmmm … Now If only I could figure out a witty word within the letters A B C D H J M S? Ham? Naw, maybe Cam?

… Oh wait what’s this I see! Is that JAM!

Yeti vs. Unicorn vs. Whale Wednesday August 20, 2008

While not as cool as the epic Whale vs. Unicorn back tattoo I plan on getting when I turn 46, this shirt is pretty sweet.
