Modern Myths

Today’s Shirt Woot t-shirt re-imagines the legend of Zelda in the art style commonly found on ancient Greek pottery.

I find this oddly apt given Link’s predilection with smashing pots.

Why Everyone’s So Scared of “Fake Geek Girls”

I’m not sure I like the whole fake geek girl thing? Just because you aren’t an obsessive geek doesn’t mean you can’t like the odd fandom, or even wear a Superman or Wonder Woman T-Shirt/Belt/whatever because you like the design.

Why are people threatened by people encroaching on their territory? It doesn’t make any sense. Or at least it didn’t before I read this.

Beware Fake Geek Girls…

The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Image: Shawarma near damascus from gomideast.com

Words cannot describe my love for shawarma, if you aren’t familiar with shawarma it’s chicken or lamb or more recently beef cooked on a huge rotating skewer rolled up in flat bread with some vegetables sauce (Garlic sauce or tahina depending on the meat) and occasionally french fries (Although I think the french fries are not part of the traditional recipe) and it is what I grew up eating. It’s a staple food in the middle east, it costs about 50p (I reackon 75 cents?) and it absolutely delicious.

I’ve had shawarma in London, Glasgow and even Tokyo I think if you told me I could only eat one food for the rest of my life I’d pick shawarma. But enough about that. I’ve noticed the internet has picked up on shawarma because of a passing reference to it in the Avengers.

This can only be a good thing as it will hopefully lead to shawarma being more mainstream, which means that I will have access to it wherever I go!

Steampunk Optimus Prime T-Shirt

 

These two T-Shirts featuring a Steam Punk Optimus Prime and a Steam Punk Soundwave are pretty cool, I especially love Optimus’ top hat and the fact that it looks like Soundwave transforms into a music box. They are both available from We Love Fine for $25 each… Maybe next month…

Game of Rogues

Movie T-Shirt - Game of Rogues - RIPT Apparel

This is today’s T-Shirt over on Ript Apparel, BatMan Sitting on a Throne made up of artefacts of his fallen foes. I’m not sure I like the tagline “Game of Rogues” but I guess it works. The original Image is by Ninja Ink.

Tetris Behind the Scenes

Let the Game Continue (04.10)

This image by Eduardo San Gil explains what is happening behind the scenes when you play a game of Tetris to generate the seemingly random stream of blocks. It was designed for a Threadless T-Shirt which I can’t seem to find anymore. But I did see that someone (Profound Whatever to be specific) had made a simulacrum of the image in Lego:
