I've experienced serious buyer's remorse after receiving my two TeeFury purchases (Zombie Pac-Man? What was I thinking?).

Just a random shirt... not on sale or anything... but I like it.

This is an old one, and I'm not sure if it was mentioned in the previous thread. Too lazy to check.



From the original submission to threadless:
True story:

In 1976, Cosmonaut Nikolai Peckmann was sent alone to an orbiting space station for what would be called Mission Six- to study the radiation levels and strange circumstances that killed all four crewmen of the last research mission.

By the third day, Peckmann's broken transmissions were coming back to ground control filled with increasing paranoia and delusion. He claimed that the spirits of the dead cosmonauts were coming to claim him, and that he had to keep moving to evade them. He shouted that if he could capture consume these spirits himself while he still had strength, he could move to the next level of consciousness...Truly the rantings of an insane man.

Indeed, video recovered later would show Peckmann running around the confined but maze-like station, downing emergency sedatives like a madman....pausing in a corner momentarily, only to throw back vitamin pills and give chase to his invisible demons.

He had exhausted the entire cargo of vitamins, pills, and fresh fruit well ahead of schedule. There was no way another crew could be assembled to rescue him before he starved. After one rather violently garbled transmission, the static cleared and the last live image on record is that of Peckmann's empty, wilted spacesuit on the cabin floor.

It was determined that another mission to recover any remains or gather any more research would be a waste of the people's money, and the station was allowed to drift out of orbit and into space- a failure never to be mentioned again. It was ordered and assumed that all video and paper evidence had been destroyed.

..then, at the dawn of the eighties, a fledgling arcade game company called NAMCO would stumble across the transcripts of these events, and the rest -as they say- is history.

Spoiler:
okay i just made all that crap up, but with or without a story, I hope it's a cool design.

I really want to get that C&H shirt, but damn that design is just fucking huge. I'm not a big fan of having prints on the front of shirts.

Awesome. Ordered. First once since around July. I have too many black shirts, so red is a nice change of pace.

When the next woot shirt is up, you'll be able to buy it for $15 on woot. Check the reckoning section for it.

Starwars mashups annoy me. Teefury desginers need some creativity (and need to stop with the trademark infringement or they are going to take that site down).

Me too. I just wish they had it in kids' sizes. I'd love to get this one for my 15-month old son.

I liked both of those Star Wars shirts... but the poker table art was sloppy and, having read Bill Watterson's desire to never have C&H merch in the 10th anniversary book, something about that parody shirt just rubs me the wrong way.

This was under the comments section which I found interesting:


Chris Wahlsaid 1 day ago

KyleMittskus said: With how opposed Bill Watterson is to allowing his art to be parodied at all, I am disappointed in this shirt. Not that I don't like it, but I can't get behind it when the originating artist is so openly opposed to such things.



Hi Kyle

When this was first released a couple of months back I did have reservations about whether or not I was disrespecting the original artist and his characters. A lot of people who I spoke to put my mind at ease, assuring me that this fell well into the realm of parody to not be a problem. Reading up on Bill Watterson I never read that he was opposed to people parodying his work, but he was always against merchandising the actual characters Calvin and Hobbes and other people misusing his characters (eg Calvin peeing on the car logos). This however was never meant to be Calvin and Hobbes but rather Chewie and Han drawn in Bill Watterson's style. Yes there are echoes of Calvin and Hobbes in the design but that's necessary for the mashup to work.

I appreciate your comment though.
