Somebody should design a Leakfrog shirt.
Better than this, anyway.

The game involved parts from other games in a manner that made no sense and often resulted in a score of "Q to 12." I found it clever and fun and would have bought three as gifts. I think there was a question of rights as to wether the name "Calvinball" was protected, maybe thats why we never saw it after the fog of war. Or perhaps not enough voted for it. We may never know.
And the leak frog is more of a religion than a cult...I'm just saying.



Oh got it. I seem to remember that now that I think of it. Thanks for the reply!

This is really a crappy shirt.

Here's why:

1) Ugly color scheme
2) Design style sucks
3) Most people don't skate
4) Looks like a kids shirt

Not from me. I like the variety of colors offered. The orange fish shirt from a few weeks back is one of the best woot shirts I've bought. I wouldn't wear it every day, but it's a nice change from more neutral colors. I don't understand buying these designed shirts simply to use them as undershirts. If you just want an undershirt, they can be found cheaper. If you must have these though, realize that there's at LEAST one neutral color offered per week (usually more)... do you really need more than 52 new shirts in a year?

We should be supporting that, so they're not off making... trouble.

I'm just trying to figure out if the color scheme is more Burger King or Whataburger. Whataburger, I think.

Wow, there sure are a lot of awt critics here! I hope some of you folks spend a proprotionate amount of time posting online about the stuff you do want to support!

This is the first Woot shirt I've looked at but I'm buying it. To each his own and all that jazz.

(I created Calvinball)

I never heard anything from woot(!) either way so I assume it was kosher copyrightwise. They've been good at letting artists know when their designs crossed into dangerous legal territory.

I can only assume it didnt get enough votes but gosh darn it, it must have been close.

Speaking of which... woot(!)staff... How do I find out how many votes Calvinball got? There was a questionmark next to "# of votes" last I saw ;-)

From what I've seen, this much is true. People do post when they like something as I've seen often and just as much when they don't like it. I'm glad to see constructive criticism in this thread however, because it seems that much in the past the comments are bland and boring, offering no insight into the mind of the poster.

I'm guessing Woot has an assload of orange shirts they are trying to get rid of...

Skatetown? More like Sucktown. ZING! I can't imagine anybody who would wear a t-shirt of this color and design, and I've tried hard to imagine that one person out there who would. He/she just doesn't exist.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is the worst T-Shirt, Woot or otherwise, that I've ever seen.

You can make up for it by voting for one of my current designs. My destructive monkey seems quite popular. ;-)

This is the type of shirt you'd find at Red Light for $40. The most fashionable people I know shop at Red Light.

It's not my style, but it's certainly stylish. While I won't buy one, this is one of Woot's best offerings to date.

If we had this style of cartooning, based on one of those monster drag racer card sets of the 70's, that would be EXCELLENT. Anyone remember what these were? They were really zany monsters in custom cars and trucks with goofy names.

Regarding this shirt, I'm just not happy with this one, but the artist definitely has a following and it's done well...

Yes? What if I have to burn every shirt that I wear at the end of the day because I sweat radiation?

On a more serious note: I agree with you on the concept of non-neutral colors.

I'm not sure why, but I was uncontrollably drawn to purchase this shirt. I find it both humorous and stylish, but I'm not Versace, so take my style with a grain of salt.

Eh, last I checked the Tron shirt was still up there.

Of course it's not like Disney ever makes T-shirts, or is very protective of their IP.

Higher prices AND crappier blanks, no thank you

Yeah, My Stereo from Above and my Breakfast Topo are both top notch! Great job and kudos to the print staff!

You mean the stuff Ed "Big Daddy" Roth did? He did wacky Monsters driving animated cars. He's most famous for his creature the "Rat Fink". They had a great exhibit of his art at the petersen museum in L.A.
