I love it! Semi-obscure geekdom shirt. :-)
Re: 1988, The Human Genome Project
love the fact that you avoided the obvious double helix and really played with how much of an object do you need to see to know what it is. wonderful design

I think plus signs count as text...but I'm not sure about that. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, Francis Collins spoke at Berkeley a couple months ago. He was a pretty good speaker, speaking about an interesting topic.
But seriously, this is an awesome shirt. I'd get this for my bio GSI's.
aww i love this!

Re: 1986: The Legend Was Born
Because I think this shirt rocks, and since I want to be wearing it a month from now....something for your this stuff isn't copyrighted list...they sell 'bottle fairies' (fairy figures in little bottles) in Ireland. I bought a couple becaue they reminded me of LoZ, each one represented a certain type of fairy. They were really cool.
sentnl wrote:Soo cool :O. I'd buy several.
Being someone who has considered working at TIGR this summer, I'd buy this shirt multiple times. Thanks for making this!

Thanks, Tek, for making it so there could be 2 science shirts in the fog! :D I like a lot!

JadenKale wrote:ROFLMAO Thanks! I think the first use of in vitro meant they still used the couple's egg and sperm, so theoretically, you could still look like dad, but I loved my initial reaction to that comment. So I've gotta ask, is your head long and skinny or is it your whole body? LOL
HAHAHAHAHAHA good one, Jaden
With regard to copryight, I know N has gone after free PC games that replicated Zelda; Open Zelda comes to mind. That might make one wonder how mean they are about their copyright since the games weren't even being sold, nor did they even recreate a complete game produced by Nintendo. However, they did include copyrighted artwork ripped directly from the games, so that's naturally a big factor. I'd hope they'd not be unhappy about this shirt, but you never know, with things like T-Mobile trying to claim rights to the color magenta. *sigh*

Discobiscuits wrote:LoL... it should be fine, I think
it's actually the one thing that's keeping me from voting for the shirt. Given woot's rejection of shirts with 2 reactors across the chest, I'm surprised this wasn't challenged. Cool idea, though.
My daughter really wants this shirt, but I'm not ready to deal with that topography and my kids yet! She's a Nintendo-maniac.
Okay. The U.S. was bogged down in Vietnam for well over 15 ('59 to '75) years and thrown into it by a possible friendly fire situation (the Gulf of Tonkin) and did not end until the fall of Saigon. The whole operation involved a lot of military operations and fell under several presidents. I'm just being picky and want to know what specific year.

I agree yours is 1000000000000000000000000000x better, but I wanted to let you know that said shirt design exists. Looks like my link crapped out but searching "tiger head" will bring it up. Also agreed that it's a terrible site.
you'll want to resub, because you've got a few auto-rejectors in your current submission:
the + will count as text
no year in the title
If you take a second to check out what has been rejected and look at the rules of rejection as well, then you can avoid resubbing.
I really like your concept, and I look forward to seeing more of your work!

I heard something about that too. A very limited run.

I loved it at the time, but now the doors look like they'd be horrible for getting in & out after parking. I fear I'm becoming too practical!
Nice design - I really like the snow surf
Did the kid get out of the car wearing mirror lens aviators? *giggles* Thats awesome! Growing up there was one down the street from where I lived and we would watch for it to pull out of the garage sometimes! Cool you got the references, Thank you!

It's not a space shuttle, but it is a rocket.

The first four Black Sabbath albums totally kick ass. Ever hear Henry Rollins' joke about Sabbath and El Nino?
anarchyvirus wrote:They did say numbers are ok: "This week, design a shirt that somehow relates to the year you were born: through fashion, historical events, cultural trends, the Chinese zodiac, or even the number itself."
Woot is turning into a bunch of control omelets.
I highlighted part for you. They didn't say you could use text either. In fact, they even specifically said you couldn't.
I had to do an Adventure one, honestly. It actually took me a bit to remember just how it looked and such. I was going to do something about the Atari itself, but this was more fitting.

HEh... it's been a while since I ordered from ThinkGeek. I may just be placing another order soon, given that's it's a TITANIUM SPORK. Just those two words togther are comedy gold. :-)
Re: 1984: Robots in Disguise
Re: 1988 mystery science 3000 is born.
I checked out the other rejected entries, and I think you guys are all correct. I'll probly get rejected cause my images make a number... Dang... Kinda ruins the design tho if it's not a number in the aliens... there's really nothing clever about a bitmapped starship shooting aliens without seeing the number in the aliens. Too bad... Does anyone have any great ideas on how it could be redesigned and resubbed?
My suggestion would be to find another, not quite related event from your year and arrange the aliens in that shape. For example, I took an actual eclipse and paired it with Dark Side of the Moon (which contained the song Eclipse) both from the same year. :-)

Seeing that I'd agree it's a bit close. Too close for parody. We'll see what woot says.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this will be rejected for having text on it. Please re-design and resubmit. Thanks!
No offense but I feel like this has been done, I see the differences and the similarities so I am not going to do anything but put this out there:

Hey Derek, congrats on the 24 this year, just turned 24 on the 9th myself... I would have to get this shirt just for the year.
And I still can't even rent a car
