I agree. I do wish that there was a way to see how these shirts would come out, though. Someone posted a list of shirts earlier that looked great on screen but printed horribly.

Isn't there some kind of print process simulation that can let us see what these shirts will look like in real life?

i hate nuclear misconceptions.



I know, doesn't stop me from representing the misconception that happened. Besides, it's just supposed to be a funny shirt.

Re: 1969- Great Moon Hoax



I love this. It reminds me of a scene in hairspray when Tracy gets on the corny collins show and penny goes to her house to show her parents and edna says

I read all about it, it's a big fake hollywood set. You think I'm gonna think he's really up there

then penny says, it's not john glenn mrs turnblad!

Yeah. I've seen this movie a few times.

I'll definitely stay up til midnight to buy this shirt.

Indeed, if you are claiming that 'black power' is not entirely about racism, then I suggest you might benefit from a little history lesson.

In regards to this particular instance, how is this different from the English soccer team giving the adowwuble cutie-patootie salute during the '38 Olympics?

Wow... I'm up to 8th place... at least for the moment. This is the best I've done since my Lake Ontario Sunset shirt. Thanks for all the votes!

Yes, I really wanted a nice toxic haze or a zombie or two, but alas, my skillz and my dreams forced a tragic split. So, we ended up with two towers. There are other 3 mile island shirts that went a slightly different direction (by way of artistic talent), and I am sure that the designers would appreciate a vote for them if you can not vote for my lonely reactor cooling towers.

The more I look at this the more I realize I am unreasonably in love with it.
This is the best cat shirt ever. Loving the colors, the details and the cat's expression.
Brilliant and sardonic once again!

Re: 1986: The Legend Was Born



Fable,

I wanted to do something Nintendo-ish, but I didn't stop to think that some of those images weren't copyrighted. This shirt is DEFINITELY going to win, and this'll be my first woot shirt purchase .

I was born in '86 as well, and I happen to think Zelda is amazing.

I see that Three Mile Island is a popular theme, but it was the first thing I got an idea for. Courteous, but honest feedback appreciated.

Re: 1984: purple rain



Is this a resub from the lyrics illustrated derby? This design looks supper familiar. No offense intended, I was just curious.

Re: 1969- Great Moon Hoax



Love the shirt!

If I recall correctly, I think one of the main arguments behind the "theory" that we didn't go to the moon is that there's apparently no wind on the moon, yet the flag was blowing in the video.

Yeah... that can easily be fixed, though. Re-do the cord and resub.

Good question...
How do you "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." without using a number?

Re: 1982: Thriller



The one that makes me laugh is the 2nd row, 2nd from the left - I dunno why, but that position is just funny.

Funny shirt - I like it.

I would suggest either changing the shirt color or changing the color of the shirt that the turtle (is that what that is?) is wearing. They bleed too much together.... good idea though. GMV.

My dad is a rocket scientist for NASA. I wear this shirt and I might be kicked out of the family. I will wear it anyway. Received my vote.

Hmm, I hadn't thought of that (or looked it up). But, I do remember that this year was thriller's big 25th anniversary.

I'm afraid Chinese characters are still considered text. This will be rejected.

If the designer took the controller and had it on the shirt 77 times, it would represent the number 77 without containing text.

Another good example I've seen: someone born in 1984 could do something from the book 1984 even though that's not the year the book came out, since the title is the same number.

I think someone explained it earlier... If you were born in 1984 you can do something about 1984 (the novel) even though the novel was written in 1948. If you were born in 1999 you can do a shirt about Prince's song.

You just can't put the actual digits in the design.

It's pretty easy to be sure: woot doesn't offer pink.

It's also well established that a lot of people's monitors display the creme as pinkish. Might be time to adjust the monitor settings.
