Re: Yellow Brick Road Trip


The most historic road trip in America involved a girl, her dog,and their entourage traveling the through a strange and foreign countryside to get stuff they already had from a guy who didn't have anything they wanted. 3 colors, on grass.

This looks so great with only three colors! One question though... why are they letting the one with no brain drive?!

The lion's paws are too big, the tin man keeps rusting up and missing turns, Dorothy's too young to get a license, and Toto can't reach the pedals or see over the dashboard.

Re: Yellow Brick Road Trip


I am earnestly getting upset about these derbys (derbies?) this is a wearable shirt for anyone. the artwork is fantastic but it's not in your face or something that needs to be thought about a ton. it's just a great shirt, with a simple theme, that is well illustrated. I can't imagine anyone outside of some DnD players (I had the misfortune of being in Indianapolis this past weekend when something called GenCon was going on) or some WoW-heads actually wearing any of the above shirts. This shouldn't be about what is just clever or gives a quick laugh, but what is actually a wearable shirt and not just a novelty gift. And that, ladies and gents, is called venting.

What shirts are you referring to that are only for Wowheads?

I'm curious how Wizard of Oz could be considered a shirt that only DnD or Wowheads would wear... it's a pretty classic American film/book.

im sure grouping dnd players and "wow" heads in a group and insulting them is a great way for this design to get noticed. maybe you should just let the design speak for itself. i am curious what makes the shirts above this only wearable by the above formentioned group. the way i see it there are a lot of designs above this that are also great shirts, with a simple theme, that are well illustrated.

Didn't you know? Only wowheads like the game "Life" and hippos.

I agree that this shirt is very much a classic that anyone would/could wear. it's the shirts that always (I'm exaggerating) seem to make it into the top 3 that just baffle me. p.s. just because my brother is a DnD player and a WoW-head, who is also an extremely cool dude doesn't mean that I'm insulting him, just that his style (and that of his friends) is much different than that of mine and my friends. He loves the top shirts, so do his friends. I'd never wear them, neither would my friends. So I'm drawing conclusions from personal experience. But again, it's just my personal opinion.

Dude, I appreciate this design. I seriously do not believe all, but two, of the designs in the top are worthwhile at all. That doesn't mean I don't consider the artwork worthwhile... just that I don't consider the artwork, on a t-shirt, worthwhile. It doesn't need to get into a huffing competition. This is a design that I saw that would actually work on a shirt, so I got pumped about it, then it got shot down in lieu of some designs that would be "cute" on a billboard or on a website header, but in my opinion, do not work on a shirt. It doesn't mean that I'm right, it's just my opinion.
