Ooh! Lots of good choices this week!

Also, if anyone is interested, I happen to have the short-sleeved version of If I Only Had a Brain in MS on AA that is looking for a loving home!

Also, keeping with Star Trek, there's a Bake It So Apron looking for a household with cooks in it!

My shirts available on Teetrade and WootStalker!

I recognize the Motorhead logo, but I have no idea what the parody is... Someone explain it to me?

Nooo... How could you do this without bringing back Finding Technicolor! I want it so badly.

Hey, I was wondering if anyone has ever purchases a hoodie during one of these sales? I've only ever bought t-shirts from shirt.woot and I love them, but I'm curious about the hoodie. What are they like, thin style that kids wear for fashion or is there substance to them like a normal hoodie sweatshirt that it will keep me warm while outside during the fall?

Quite substantial! Fleecy on the inside, well-constructed, pocket is a nice big size. You can wear one for fashion and keep warm!

Apparently the theme for this week is "movies." Out of the 24 items being offered, I recognize four references: two to Wizard of Oz, which I've never seen; one to Nightmare on Elm Street, which I've never seen; and one to Jurassic Park, which - shockingly - I've seen. I've seen many, many of these shirts over the years, and never realized that they involved a reference to a movie.

I can't believe you guys haven't kicked me off woot island yet!

RIP A.A. Blanks (Obituary)

Woooooooo! I almost cried when I missed out on No One Left to Play With the first time. I wish I could have some kind of alert anytime a patrickspens shirt goes up for sale. ^_^

Does the same hold true for the zipper hoodies?

FWIW, I get quite a few comments when I wear my @@ and Ding Dong shirts. Although I often have to talk them through the Ding Dong shirt. Seems more people think of them as Ho-Hos. "Ho Ho, the witch is dead" doesn't work.

I'm so happy to see It Came Out Of Nowhere return to Woot!

I've been waiting for a reprint on It Came Out Of Nowhere for a while now.

I guess I won't be popular with the guys manning the presses with this suggestion but it's a shame Woot can't offer hoodies, long sleeved shirts and tees on all their reprints.

I would say so, as they're both the same material.

If anyone is wondering on the sizing - I normally wear a men's large, but when I do buy hoodies, I buy in men's medium. Here's the visual comparison.

(Your mileage may vary.)

Personally I have two tees of If I Only Had A Brain and felt the print quality to be sub-par to all the other Patrick's shirts.

Hi guys, I get a few of the references (oh the alien one is so great, I've to get this one), but can somebody explain me the reference behind

- Rise of the goblins
- a simple question of weight ratios
- ding dong the witch is dead
- ancestry (and)
- black knight coat

maybe I've never seen the movies, but maybe I'm just not getting the point :-/

Sadly, you are running into a lot of people who don't know their cakes! Ho-Hos are tubular. Ding-Dongs are round.

would someone be so kind as to let me know the reference behind No One Left to Play With? I saw the shirt before and was hoping for a reprint, but I don't want to buy without knowing what I'm getting myself into

Ding Dong = Wiz of Oz
Ancestry = Tron
Black Knight = Monty Python + Grail

No one left to play with? LOTR?

Edit:
Weight Ratios = MP + Grail? "flight speed of an unencumbered wood sparrow" ?

Rise of the Goblins, I have no idea.

It's LOTR/The Hobbit, and I got excited as soon as I saw it. Then I realized who all the piles of ash were, and I immediately got mad because that's the 9 in the Fellowship of the Ring (none of whom encounter a dragon), not the 14 in the Hobbit. (Plus, Bilbo is really the only one of that group who confronts Smaug the dragon.)

Wasn't Nightmeow on Elm Street just offered last week as a short sleeve tee?! I want it so badly on L/S I'm confused as to why it would be offered in the same format 2 weeks in a row =/

It's not the Balrog?

I think the pitiful little guy who lost all his playmates is supposed to be the Balrog, from Fellowship.

Rise of the Goblin King is a Labyrinth shirt...looks like it's an imagining of how he gained his title.

That isn't Smaug, it's the Balrog. The Fellowship encountered it in the mines of Moria.

Also, I still can't figure out the goblin king one, either. Is it Labyrinth?

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

Yes, Rise of the Goblin King is Labyrinth. It won first place in the mazes and labyrinths derby.

I weep for the lack of geek cred on display here. For those who didn't get the references because you hadn't seen the movies, gosh durn it go see them! As for those who saw the movies and still didn't get the references, well there's just no helping you, is there?

(I keed. Go buy shirts.)

I never saw Labyrinth! I guess I should.

The only other one I don't know is the Pinata one....
