(does this count as tax deductible?)



I almost bought the shirt as a joke but at $12 its a lot less appetizing. Like others have said, I probably won't buy very many shirts unless they are epic but with them I usually buy them on reckoning to support the artist.

Agreed. Starting to get sick of FB in general. Might be heading to the same fate as Friendster and MySpace. Not "cool" anymore.

No offense to the designer, just bad timing for me personally.



Same boat. Just wait til the timeline hijacks your life. Time to migrate to Google+ and let this IPO fail.

Eh, if i were to get this in my random woot one day, I would be okay with it and wear it. But its not 12 good to me.

Ian is a very talented artists who does a wide variety of pop culture and original pieces. I would suggest as Odysseyroc suggests and check out his FB or his site.

Not every shirt is going to resonate with everyone.

There have been plenty of shirts I haven't dug in the past and just passed on them. It's the nature and the amazing part of a shirt a day site... you don't like today's... BAM! There is another one tomorrow!

Heh, I was wondering when a fellow nerd would say something like this. Fortunately (or unfortunately?) this has been done. Poke around the intertubez for this design:

My dislike of facebook was recently bolstered by this article, about a study showing that people who spend a lot of time on facebook tend to be less satisfied with their (real, tangible) lives: http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2011/01/the_antisocial_network.html

Also, btw, not graduating from college is really not that fun, unless you have a trust fund. Take it from someone without a college degree OR a trust fund.





110% agree. with all of it.

My mother nearly refused to speak to me for a week after I deleted facebook. I will tell you that since deleting my account, however, I was nearly instantly happier and more productive in my life.

They said we'd be sorry when Disney bought the United States- but after several Mickey Mouse presidents in a row we're still OK...

... but besides that we're still OK.

Um, I actually thought at $10, that woot.shirt was really doing well - considering the quality of the shirt that they are providing and I'm sure the massive quantity they were buying at, as well as the cost of shipping that you have under control.

Getting to be a tired old formula for selling and nothing new about it... boring and now more expensive... you're losing me amazon, I mean woot.

See, what they should have done was jump up to $18. Claim it's what they needed to do to remain competative. Let people whine for two or three weeks. *THEN* dropped down to a perfectly reasonable $12. Everyone would then be praising the new price, not blasting it.

The last shirt I ordered (which was actually the first shirt I ever ordered from Woot! was really THIN.... is this normal?

I'm used to the nicer Gildan tees. I know that they are going to last. I'd even pay another dollar or two to upgrade to a better quality tee. If I buy an artists work, I want to make sure they aren't painting it on a canvas that will fall apart ahead of its time.

Sorry. But true. Please help me understand.

Yes, Gildan blanks are heavier. Other than the heavier weight, no, they're not better.

- Ring spun vs. carded = Softer, smoother, and finer threads that make up the fabric.
- Combed cotton = removing the short fibers and impurities that don't add any strength. Indeed, it's this part that makes such blanks feel like sandpaper.

I don't really like facebook, and basically don't use it. I deleted my account for over a year and created a new one just so I didn't have to constantly ask friends for photos. However, I think this shirt is great! It's a better "like" joke that usual, maybe because it reminds me of highschool. =)

As someone who's survey would include those that usually buy $4 clearanced shirts due to budget I understand that an extra $2 does put it out of a purchase for some (because they do keep a good budget not because they keep a bad one).

Matingas wrote:completely agree!

so many of my impulse buys i barely even wear.. and if they were $12 i would've never bought em. ($2 is not a lot. but it just doesnt give the roundness $10 does)


But if you are buying shirts you don't wear, you should be glad they raised the price, they are helping to prevent you from being a hoarder.

OH MY FLIRTY GOODNESS!! The mailman just handed me a brown box which I immediately opened standing disheveled and dumbfounded in the blinding sun and when I saw the seXXXy white box with the come-hither-red-label "Candy Basket" I ripped into the box faster than rats in an attic. Dark chocolate downstairs, milk chocolate upstairs; 28 pieces each and not just salted on top, but lightly salted on the bottom as well. Popped one in my mouth and...waited for it...turbulent flavors bursting rhythmically through every movement of my jaw, a medley of chocolate melting in perfect harmony with my own internal mouth-heat. So creamy it should be illegal. Death by chocolate, indeed. GET YOUR WOOT ON!

Besides, in a few years, these may prove to be as popular as Myspace shirts in thrift shops.



I hate to hate on a design (since I don't want to hate hate on anyone here), but this does seem rather flash-in-the-pan. People are already getting tired of facebook. Almost as tired as I am of seeing facebook shirts on woot.

Whatever, though. It surely makes them money off the more random people who might stumble across it, and it saves me from dipping into my bank account again. I think I have a pretty serious addiction at this point, so shirts like this are the Champix for that.

Took an unofficial survey at superbowl party (amongst HEAVY shirt.woot buyers) and no one plans on buying $12 shirts unless they're epic. you are out of impulse buying range. Sorry woot.

52 shirts. probably 12 i HAD to have, and 40 impulse buys.



Right on. Woot managed to capture the psychology of marketing quite well, being able to sell c/r/a/p in bags and even tell people that that's what they were getting. But somehow they missed the subtle point that people think twice when "ten bucks" turns into "twelve dollars".

Yes, it's only $2 more... but the explanation (rising prices) simply doesn't bear up to market facts.
