Too hard to say about the last two; there are just as many that stopped short of the semi-arbitrary 8k mark too.

Poker Game did cross the line after the side sale, however. Yes, it kind of skews the "weeks" aspect, but so did The Cake is a Liar, which was brought back twice already.

If it's Banana Squid you're talking about, it was definitely printed on AA. The neckline is coarser on the Cygnus blanks they used to use and there's a color difference between AA2001 asphalt (which I have like 4 dozen of, mostly from here) and C7000 charcoal (from my first runs of Good Always Win and Salsa!).

It was a creme shirt (Love without Words by stardamsel). The two with tags were lemon (Pottery Training by CrescentDebris) and asphalt (Vile Weed by fishbiscuit - which I'd been wanting for a while because it's so darn funny!). Also, don't know if anyone here got Pottery Training, but the print seems rather far down on the shirt. I do like the artwork on all of them though!

Probably a smart choice in a warm-weather climate neuro helps Narf extend antenna, pins flower on hat, gently pats Narf on the shoulder, backs away verrrrrrrry slowly

No, Boots' Negative Bob. The blank seems softer than AA, but less flattering. Since the design ended up in a place that, um, fails my personal "would I wear this in public?" test, it may become my favorite nightshirt. (In the morning, I am definitely the bird on the right.)

It was on one of the lighter colored shirts - I normally avoid the light colors [although, I jumped on today's even though baby blue]. Dawn dishwashing liquid does work on GREASY stains, but marinara sauce and other colored stains are tougher to get out.

GoodJoe is where most of my bucks are going to these days. AA blanks and either screen printed up in San Jose, CA or DTG from Iowa.

Tilteed is in "cruise control" mode, but DoOomcat's new print there a few weeks ago and that some designs have gone back in full stock still gives me some hope they'll be back. AA blanks and screen printed in Portland, OR.

At least TeeFury uses Alstyle blanks that are USA fabric/sewn in Mexico. There's more American labor involved versus something completely made overseas, which doesn't leave much beyond warehouse/logistics and executives. They screen down in Irvine, CA. All pop-culture-all-the-time does minimize my purchasing there, however.

I've bought one shirt from TeeFury and I thought the material was really rough, especially in comparison to AA. In fact, I have had that shirt for several months and I have yet to wear it. I do enjoy most of the pop culture designs there, but I've never been compelled sacrifice comfort by purchasing more.

Yeah, so there's that...

Poor pig, he wasn't so lucky in the end after all. I'm surprised at how big a gap there was between 21 and 22, though. Only the top shirt of the Danger Zone really had any chance of survival this week.

And suddenly we have no more cats in The Reckoning.

I also see that Nevermore is slowly sinking back into danger territory. It seems to me that there could be enough momentum from the new guys to push it into the twenties. Wishful thinking though...

Yeah, so there's that...

Now that you've mentioned it, it will never happen.

Such is the way of the Woot.

Seriously, shirts with "constituencies" find the sales to survive. I wouldn't have bet $5 on 1971 Floppy Diskette surving on Thursday, but word must have spread in the IT community, and it put up some strong numbers over the weekend. There are a lot of people with sentimental feelings towards The Bird, and they will turn out when it is in real danger.

I'm actually wearing mine right now, and I'm a little sorry that I didn't pop in until just now to check the reckoning.

AS for Narf's predictions. I think Every 28 day shirt but Family Breakfast is loosing their strongest week, and this week's shirts have a stronger showing that he's giving them credit for.

At this point, I believe woot will no longer be debuting any shirts on AA in men's sizes. Lucky Pig, Artichokey, Spelling Bee, Nevermore, and 1971 are the only shirts remaining on AA in men's sizes.

FWIW, service told me that the silver AA women's shirts should actually be listed as Anvil... As for why it did poorly: I can only speak for myself, but I don't really "get" it. I'm not sure that it reads particularly well.

It sounds like haxrox's family is motivated to save Nevermore if it falls into the danger zone. Personally, after reading his post on Nevermore's fourth anniversary, I can't bring myself to have any negative feelings about its presence on the Reckoning. It's outselling other shirts, and really, in scheme of life, I'm not sure how much it matters.

I will admit that story did expel a lot of the hatred I had for the shirt (especially since we just went through the same thing with my mother-in-law), which is why I was less concerned about jinxing it this time. I guess it shouldn't matter now to me anyways. There's only one shirt left that I would buy.

Yeah, so there's that...

I'd never hated it, just wished that it would survive washing better, but it sounds like a lot of us are on our way out of here, and if so, there's no reason for our last act to be to take down Nevermore or even to root for its demise. It's always represented shirt.woot for me, and the day that Nevermore switched from AA to Anvil in women's sizes was one of the first days that I realized... well, that the party was over and it was time to think about moving on.

I'm glad Nevermore will outlast us all.
