Re: 1983 - Take a Look, It's In A Book



Holy lots of votes, batman!

Thanks a bunch for your support of my ineffably feminine design, guys. It may be a bit of a pipe dream for it to win by now, but I'm surprised and happy about it's numbers, and would love to be surprised-er and happier.

If you're on the fence, let me assure you that the design works as a pro reading shirt without needing to know the reference, showing the adventure which can come from opening a book. The adorable unicorn-based adventure. Also, to men who might pass by this shirt, I promise that if you're able to rock this, you'll be a total mack daddy. Also makes a great gift for the ladytype in your life!

But you don't have to take my word for it! (ba-dum-DUM!)

This shirt deserves to win, hands down. It takes a lot of work to reach this level of geekery, and I commend you!

Not only is there text, but I suspect that Tetris, in any similar form, would be copyrighted.

Re: 1982: Thriller 2



I loved the concept of the first one, but the design was too big for me so I left it alone. This one is perfect, and the first shirt I would buy three of I've seen on woot; I have friends who would love this so much. GMV!

Re: Hands Across America -- 1986



"On the afternoon of Sunday, May 25, 1986, almost seven million people joined hands to form a human chain that stretched 4,152 miles (6,682 km) – from New York City's Battery Park to a pier in Long Beach, California. This nationwide event, called Hands Across America, was intended to raise money to fight hunger and homelessness."

i hate how the design may not be printed =(

That's an excellent way to state the case. If someone says "he has talent," they should just stop - he has talent, and that's what matters.

I disagree with that last statement though - Lime in the Coconut is a genious shirt. It's clever (in a "why didn't I think of that?" kind of way), it's simple and well-designed, it references a hilarious song - what's not to love?

Woot will want to see it on a shirt, so you might want to slap the design on a shirt template and resubmit.

Wow, a shirt depicting two cold-blooded mass murderers. How nice it would be to show our support not only for a system that necessitates subjugation and inequity, but also celebrates the two vicious tyrants that set up that system in Cuba.

Re: 1975 - Jaws scares moviegoers out of the water



I am a HUGE fan of sharks, so I'm automatically biased towards this lovely creation. I love how the shark was drawn, and the scene going on. I wish you the best of luck, and you've got my vote!

That being said, I'm not denying he has incredible drawing skills, but I think he could enter anything at this point, and it would still win/place in every derby. It always does. Even if it's a design that isn't very wearable. People will vote/buy just because Cho drew it and Cho seems to have a lot of fans. AGAIN, I am not saying he isn't good at what he does. People are just a lot like sheep and follow the herd, in this case the majority. Sheeple.




Just FYI Jenny, Cho has had quite a few entries that did not win or place in Derbies...

In the movie, I remember the woman swimming alone attacked by the shark, but I don't remember a scene like this, with a man swimming alone. There was a scene with kids in the water, but no-one alone like this. anybody?


Of course this is not depicting a scene from the film (which is copyrighted material). This is more a portrayal of our fears after watching the film.

Man, I personally like this shirt the best. I really like the old school orange stripes. I like the main colour as well.

yeah...still a decent idea poorly executed. not sure how taking big incomprehensible things and making them smaller is supposed to be an improvement...just makes them even more incomprehensible. anyone unfortunate enough to own this would tire of explaining what the heck it is over and over and over....

I think it's a valid point...that's the entire foundation of the derby ennit? the designer is basically saying "fine, it started in 1990 OFFICIALLY, but they thought of it in 1988" - well, i think i'll just do a 1970 Star wars shirt, since it's well known lucas had already conceived it then.

all of which is beside the primary problem with the shirt - it's really not aesthetically appealing at all. Dare I say it's downright u g l y?

QFT. The derby is about the year you were born, and while woot obviously can't police our actual ages, it means that the year should be important. It means that any shirt with an incorrect date should be rejected for being off theme. Otherwise, why not just do a straight-up History theme?

Re: 1973 - Solar eclipse of the decade



I think I'd prefer the design with some kind of skyline to add some perspective, otherwise it kinda just looks like an orange circle on a black shirt. Its still way cool.

John Hughes is what drove me into punk music. It was the quickest route out of the 80's. The Ramones and The Clash got me through Cindi Lauper and Madonna. I thought we were all doomed until Nirvana came along...

Re: 1976 - The year I was made



um no. It has to be something relating to the year in which you were born, not the actual act of conception.
