The shirts that wouldn't die are back, clamoring once again for the the attention you denied them before. Now's your chance to show the Honorable Mentions from Derbies #67 through #78 that you really love them after all. Put down your pen, exit out of your graphics program, and just look at them...so hopeful...so trusting...what kind of a meanie would crush their spirits all over again?

Designers: if you sold or submitted your Honorable Mention design elsewhere, or opted out of including your design in the Double-Take Derby, email us at shirt@woot.com by noon tomorrow and let us know. Any design found for sale, having sold, or submitted to another site for voting will not be eligible for the Double-Take Derby and will be removed from consideration.

And if you'd like to get a jumpstart on Derby #81, the theme will be Heartbreak, in all its figurative and literal meanings. That Derby will open for entries on February 6. No text.

Ooh goodie. There are enough Ramy and Seki designs with unwarranted HMs that a hundred other entries can get screwed over hard YET AGAIN!

Man, I can't wait!

I was looking forward to the mad rush of designing. Didn't those shirts already have their chances?

I dunno, woot couldn't even post this in the right forum, so I don't trust we'll get anything but three piles of desu.

First time I'll not have a design in a double take. Good luck to all! At least we get an extra week to think of something that isn't nylon for the next derby.

Yeah WE do.... but then woot's gonna mess it up with a theme that blows goats.

That's only good if we can't make it emo-themed, use hearts or anime, or put things in the position where the heart would be or a pocket position.

Didn't expect this either. As I haven't gotten any HMs ever, gives me more time to work on my Threadless entries.

And the heart derby- thanks Joel for giving us a WEEK to work on our designs! I have preciously little free design time lately, and this really saves me from my usual Monday entry.

I'd say so. I was sooooo hopeful for Drakxxx, Sundbe, and BootsBoots.

It seems each week I fall in love with a design from Drakxxx and/or BootsBoots, they start strong, linger just outside the fog, and get beat out by something I'm not ever gonna want.

heartbreak, indeed.

Wait until the results are announced before complaining. :p

My only hope: the following week of Editor's Picks.

Even though the designs I like don't usually win, I enjoy Double Take derbies. It's nice to vote on Friday and then not have to worry about it again for a week. lol

Can't say I'm excited about the following Heartbreak derby, though. A design about heartbreak would have to be stunningly fantastic for me to like it.

One of you is printing either way. That should be enough to cause anyone heartbreak.

Oh, I'm not complaining, seki. Just waxing forlorn

It's not that I'm against everything you guys have ever done, I've bought a few designs. And I am hoping for your "lust red" design again. I think it's breathtaking.

I just wish everyone would always vote like I want them to vote

I actually wish that too. The only shirt I would have worn from this derby was Worst Date Ever, and it wasn't close to the fog at all.

Oh, no doubt about lapses of judgment there too...but the only shirt I've gotten after a Double Take derby was an Editor's Pick. I have a smidgen of hope left, small as it may be.

Well, I only have a few dogs in this derby and they're all pretty mangy. That DBH contest looks pretty cool though thanks for posting that.

Your modesty kills me sometimes. I think that 'Beginning of the End' stands a good shot, considering it did well and is still fresh in voters' minds.
