This week seems to have much much much more pop culture than usual, to the extent of which even I can say it's too much. I don't mind it now and then, and I do have my fair share of such shirts, but we really don't need a second TeeFury here.

I predict at least No Star Wars and No video games next week. Better would be no pop culture, period, until the end of the year (which isn't that far away, really). Which I suppose would just give rise to more turbunguins ... pick your poison, right?

So, from what I've seen so far, next week the rules will be:

No text-only designs
No Star Wars
No zombies
No bunnies or turtles or grim reapers
No Legend of Zelda ANYTHING— EVER— AGAIN.

OK, I've been really busy and unable to check the Derby for a few days, but I never expected THIS. Do I actually count SIX Zelda/Link designs? SIX???
One of the best derby topics, yet some of the most unoriginal stuff, evar. >facepalm<

Actually, Artists thought that you encounter Vader, Mario, Link and other VG characters "in the kitchen" everyday.

Also, only 3 in the fog have given us print-ready art. If you're in the fog, this isn't the week to get rejected for not providing print-ready art. Send it!!!

I've often wondered if you really want all those print ready files... I mean, should a person wait to see if it's gonna be close? I always send them but I would think it sucks on your end.

surely you are taking about actions others might take...You voted for more than 1-2 in the top 10?

O.o

Why wouldn't I? I vote for all the designs that strike my fancy. Is there an expectation otherwise?

I love these types of updates. Mysterious hints into the moment of the fog. Come on tie!

Nope, just surprised that there's that much you like.

And for clarification...I vote for the shirts I'd buy. And I follow up on that as often as possible.

I'm glad someone else does it that way, I was starting to think I'd been doing it wrong.

I'm just hanging out, really.

I too vote for all the designs I would buy at first, then towards the end of the voting cycle I force myself to choose a top 3 as to not interfere with the votes.

I'm down to having votes for just three in the fog now. Like usual, my favorites tend to end up just outside the fog.

I can see the next double take derby featuring many of these designs in the fog.

More derbies should have wide open themes like this.

I agree. I'll admit that some of my favorite shirts in this derby have pop culture references, but there's really just too much Link, Mario, and TMNT this time.

This derby is crazy... So many shirts with 600+ votes... Most times the 3rd place shirt doesn't even have 600 votes... CRAZY!

Can we add Portal to that list too?

I'd like to add "no 'Like' button" themed shirts to the list of rules as well. If you can't think of anything better than that, it's not worth the submission. The theme is SUPER played out.

Has there been a derby that has had this many shirts over 700 votes before?

It might get an honorable mention and go in to a double take derby, so possibly.
