Wonder why my comment was deleted?

Anyways, I love the design and glad I got in for one before it was sold out.

If you are interested in buying the daily shirt, there would be a "I Want One Button" next to the picture. The daily shirt will be available tomorrow at this link.

if you are interested in Woot's back catalog of currently available shirts, here's a nice link with pictures.

Hope that helps!

I love how Shirts on Sale sets that up with the icons. I really wish that woot would do that as well when noting it in the blog every week with the rest of the stats (position last week/weeks on chart). I think that would help out the customers so much more. I mean, we are asking people to spend money on tshirts and it's totally based on visual appeal. Why not cater to that by using thumbnails? I figure, if it's working for Shirts on Sale to promote woot's shirts, why not do it ourselves? That's just my take on it.


Grats again to David selling out by 5:30am this morning. Great run for your shirt!

sawbones84 wrote:Actually I can agree with this statement. My first experience with AA's clothing has been through s.w and uneetee, etc. and I gotta say, these shirts aren't half as fantastic as everybody claims them to be. The material is almost always thin (don't tell me it's the current "style") and doesn't survive a great many cycles through the washer/dryer. Hanes Beefy Ts are still the best you can get in terms of a quality t-shirt. It'd be nice if some of the quirky T sites would print on those.

I think it's one of those cases of viral hype that makes everybody think American Apparel is the end all and be all of clothing. Non-sweatshop does not always equal premium quality.



I like them, they breath better then Hanes T's And oh yeah, there thin because yes - that is the current style. Pick up a magazine sometime.

I agree on the breathing.

Beefy-Ts make me sweat like a noob at a woot-off.

there's no better way to put it. This should have come out a couple months ago and it would've been perfect. It's almost time for summer and these gray/dark shirts are still dominating the line-up.

Still, it's a really clever idea. This artist is very smart.

Of course, this sort of animation style also predates Soul Coughing by a few decades. Likely we all knew this, but it would be a shame for some of our younger crowd to think you meant that Soul Coughing invented that look.

Thanks for the sellout everybody!!! I'm glad this was a popular design.

I just woke up- it's still morning here in New Zealand. I didn't even know it had gone up!

Also, great shirt description of both the design, and my name. I llo'd.

generally, the implication is "you got owned". supposedly "pwned" was a typo, but it made it mainstream and stuck.

From Wikipedia:

Pwn (/poʊn/, /puːn/, /pəʔˈoʊn/, /pɔːn/, /piˈoʊn/, /pwəʔˈn̩/) is a leetspeak slang term, derived from the word "own",[1][2][3] that implies domination or humiliation of a rival, used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent who has just been soundly defeated.

From an article on the MacBook Air being hacked:

"Pwn" is computer gaming slang for "own," as in conquer. The "p" typo serves to heighten the humiliation of defeat by emphasizing that the loss came at the hands of a youth who can't even spell or type correctly.

Now that's funny.

I can't believe how much the characters on the shirt look like characters I could have sworn that I've seen before. But, apparently not.

Thanks for the definitions of "pwned," guys. I had a feeling it meant "owned."

Note:
You can see Koko the Clown in that Soul Coughing video (actually from a Betty Boop cartoon), at 00:31.

And the video I linked to earlier (Koko's Earth Control), was from 1928. (which predates Soul Coughing's video by at least 60 years)

So, I'm new to shirt.woot and I see all these other shirts for sale in other listing with no sellout. What makes this one different? Is there a way I could pick one of these up despite today's sellout?

Edit: NVM, just saw the first post. But $5 more? That vacuums.

The colors on these one turned out to be a bit more subdued that I thought they'd be... which is exactly how it should look, in my opinion. Quite happy with this one.

It took me two days of looking at it to figure out it's the light primary colors not pigment in the gusher. o_O Now I am very tempted even with the $15 price.

Man.. the "lighter gray" in my shirt it so dark the design kind of disappears into the dark gray color of the shirt itself. *sighs* Maybe I should try to return it? *shrugs* Eh, it's fine. This one printed really nice though.

This design kicks your mom in the face. That's how bad mass it is.
