Re: 1984: Robots in Disguise



Love it! I used to come home from school and watch transformers and g.i. joe and my mom would come home from work, catch me sitting about 4 inches from the TV and yell at me for not washing the dishes. every day.

It'll get more than a rejection of text. The design isn't even his. He just changed the colors:

The colors are different than the official patch, but otherwise it is the same design. And while I did not find a tshirts with the design on it today, I assure you that they have been done several times in the last 27 years.

Re: 1970, Spoon Fork =


hey, did you know there is now a thing called the knork? really, it's actually a nice piece of flatware (if you're into that sort of thing) do a google for it. just a neat invention... but it was like a 2000 – 2007. doubtful that anyone would be designing for those years yet.

Re: 1988 year of the dragon



nix the globe and i'd take 3! nice dragon. but the globe makes me think of the 3,729 companies that believe that the globe somehow inherently represents their little small town company.

ok, designers... tell me you don't know what i'm talking about... you remember that first logo free-lance logo project where the person dumped on all you're super-cool ideas and said... "hey, why not do a navy blue globe?"

I think it's just you... Though I can see some doonsebury-esqe qualities in the head, the linework style and body are completely different... no where close enough to imply plagarism. Maybe he lives in dunnesberry?

They did say numbers are ok: "This week, 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."

For $25, tourists were picked up at Love Field airport and taken on John F Kennedy's cavalcade route down Lemmon Avenue before rounding the corner at Dealey Plaza.

From here, a tape of shots ringing out from the Texas School Book Depository was played and Crute would floor the accelerator to Parkland Hospital's emergency room before the announcement: 'It's official now. The president is dead.'
The tour was stopped in 2001 after a host of complaints.



Complaints. Imagine that.

THIS IS GRUESOME!!!!!!!

But to get back to this shirt, I like that you chose this for 1968. That year was also the year of the wierdest Democratic Convention, where the Chicago police went overboard. Your topic is sadder but nicer.

Thanks. If you like the design, try to get the word out, since it looks like with Zelda and the Genome charging up the charts, it's gonna be a battle between Thriller and me for third or fourth (or fifth when Cho gets an entry in)... and it doesn't look good with me out of the hotness...

that is offensively rude.

you're wrongly parsing their grammar. woot has made it clear, REPEATEDLY, that numbers and other symbols are considered as text.

ROFLMAO Thanks! I think the first use of in vitro meant they still used the couple's egg and sperm, so theoretically, you could still look like dad, but I loved my initial reaction to that comment. So I've gotta ask, is your head long and skinny or is it your whole body? LOL

Gotta disagree with the drug culture starting in the '60s. The beats were doing drugs, and the flappers before them.

I really like this a lot. I liked the orange shirt too, but I live really close to Cincinnati and all I could think of with that one was the Bengals football team. The Black shirt really gives it it's own identity. Great Job Artulo!

This is why this derby topic is so great. First you get an awsome spork design, and second you get to learn facts like when the spork patent was filed... neat!

Oh wow, it even says To Andrew, how cool You're lucky you even got a response, let alone such a good one...you always hear stories of how kids wrote to their favorite athlete or celebrity and never hear back from them.

In Feb. 1971 he jumped 19 cars to successfully break the world's record. A little bit after that he tried to jump some Pepsi trucks and I guess that's where he had his first major wreck.

The morning show I listen to used to have him on quite often, right up to several days before he died and he was always a good sport and so nice.

Drugs were on college campuses in the 50s for certain. But I guess it depends on your definition of drug culture.Drugs came out into the open in the 60s, especially after Timothy LEary's book came out in 1964.

I know that, but it wasn't release here (where woot can ship) until 87. Just fighting for my birth year, really.
