Like the song. Need to work on the boot though. Interesting idea, though. I can see Cho putting a penguin in a short skirt and long jacket...

Except that I'm tired of the flower entires, I wanted to make an entry based on this song. Unfortunately, I couldn't find an original video so you guys get to watch that. Now that I think about it...there might not be one. Dunno. Enjoy the song. ^_^

I want to submit a "Inspired by Joel Lewis the Reckless Rejector" shirt but, I don't have my computer. I'm on spring break. I plan on sublimating my angst into a really sweet entry next week. Unless its no-text again. I want to use some helvetica.

If you are on Spring Break you should just be happy about that!
I was a cool design though.

If you really want to peeve off the powers that be (which includes the snobby voters), make the font Times New Roman. That really drives them mad.

Sorry you got booted- you were up there in the standings. The problem with designs incorporating iconic images (like Abbey Road) is that it's hard to do them without someone raising a ruckus. Especially if you are between someone and their pet shirt design.... so unfortunate, since it was a really nice concept.

EDIT: You could parody Maxwell's Silver Hammer, only having the silver hammer coming down on a vague t-shirt design

Here ya'll go.. since my other attempt has 2.. count em 2!!!! votes (thanks Spryte) I'll have to enter thie one:

You think we look pretty good together
You think my shoes are made of leather

But I'm a substitute for another guy
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated

Yeah

I'm sorry you feel badly about your shirt getting rejected, but Joel made the absolute right decision. You can't really make a Beatles fan shirt about a Beatles song that uses a well-known, iconic, and copyrighted piece of Beatles imagery as the centerpiece. It's also not an obvious parody, because it takes the lyrics literally. If it managed to be printed, Woot would have risked some considerable legal issues.

Getting rejected isn't personal, it's just a fact of the derby. And while it vacuums, the best reaction is to come back and do something even better next week.

I can't believe woot is selling two for $10 again. I really like these 2 better than the other 3 from the last derby too so that was nice. I also can't believe how unbelievably rough this derby has been voting wise. That is too bad Iambusyeating's shirt got rejected. He/she has had an obviously quick progression to high quality work. It was a fairly easy call that it would be rejected for its content, but I expect good things will happen in future derbies.

it's not that it's an iconic image. lots of woot designs have those. it's that it was a copyrighted image. woot tends to boot all of them unless it is obviously parody. which this one wasn't. it was a nice design though.

Or Comic Sans. I think a shirt can get rejected if it uses Comic Sans. O.O

What the hell, there aren't that many posts here. Everybody must be too busy trying to make pictures out of obscure songs.

Here's mine.



Dr. Jeremy Corn's bioweapon experiment worked!

Inspired by the lyrics
"...pictures
Of mountain tops
With him on top
Lemon yellow sun
Arms raised in a V
The dead lay in pools of maroon below"

Yeah so the Derby Cyberpub really is dead this week. Wow. Then again, this derby has had 400 entries already so I guess everyone's been busy.

This is probably the easiest derby to think of ideas for, so people who have the time to make shirts are probably just busy doing it. I have no less than 3 more shirt ideas, but I'm really going to stop after this. There is not much point in trying anyways since there is no chance I am going to be beating James Cho or Jimiyo or the Lime in the Coconut shirt, though it would be nice to get some votes anyways.

I'm doing a silly one tonight- "I'd like to teach the world to sing"- with the sun conducting the earth. It's coming out REALLY silly looking. I took the world I made for my Depeche Mode entry that got, oh, 10 votes... hoping it gets the "late entry sympathy vote".

I think qualtiy late entries will get some votes regardless of sympathy. I recall some tyranosaurus rex arms doing quite well as a late entry a few weeks ago. I'm sure yours will do fine. I was thinking of making Lola, by the Kinks. It was going to be a very feminine cherry cola can, with a strategically placed pair of cherries, indicating the true gender of the can, but my wife thought spider pig was better and now I ran out of steam.

I don't know if my thoughts are all that helpful, seeing as I can't seem to break 40 votes, but I think the earth shouldn't have so many colors in the mouth. I figure you are showing the earth's core, which would look something like that, but it just doesn't look right to me. The sun's left arm also seems just a touch out of place. It is otherwise very good and it generally makes sense.

Change the conductor's baton into a whip and put the earth in chains/bondage gear, and then you've got something.

I'm teaching the earth to SING... not to SUFFER

I might work on the left hand of god (oh, SUN, sorry). If you search any image bank, you see conductors use both hands. I had mine pointing, but maybe I can change it to something else (fist, or just a flat hand).
