I do declare! It’s another Kari Fry shirt! I’m normally not a fan of humongous prints, but how else to you fit 151 freaking Pokémon on a shirt? Got the blue version because that was my first copy of the game.
Finding Game Center CX apparel on ebay is damn near impossible (but I would totally pay for a real GCCX shirt if the opportunity arose, hint hint).
I took some screencaps of The King and the logo and went over them in Flash, then took the pictures onto Spreadshirt and 7-14 days later, I had me a Game Center shirt.
Fuck everyone and their “Where’s my flying car?” entitlement shtick, I want to go to the goddamn moon.
Easily my oldest shirt still in rotation. My mother got this shirt when we went to Disney World in ‘97 and I nabbed it from a pile of clothes going to Goodwill.
There’s a whole slew of reasons I could say I bought this shirt: proceeds went to charity, I’m a fan of speed runs, etc.
But mostly, I got it because Earl is on it. And I fucking love ToeJam and Earl.
Fangamer’s got a reprint of this shirt in a color scheme that’s more up my alley, but whatever. Hard to complain when you’re getting a neat shirt and doing good at the same time.
Okay, I’m usually not fond of shirts that combine two pop culture icons for no reason (because it’s so lazy and pandering), and then I go ahead and buy this shirt, proving what we’ve all known for quite some time: I’m a giant fucking hypocrite.
Things I like:
- Schrödinger’s Cat
- Brown and orange color scheme
Boy, was there nerd rage when this was on Teefury. The complaints that it should be a Super Nintendo and Genesis or NES and Master System are totally legit, but as someone who grew up with a NES while my friend had a Genesis, this shirt totally works for me.
Got this for Christmas earlier today. The Mega64 folks make great videos and I love their sense of humor. I’ve wanted a Mega64 shirt for a while but none of their other designs ever clicked with me, until they put out this limited edition variant of their Brain Fog shirt. My shirt collection is seriously lacking in green and purple.
Look what arrived today!
Pennywhistle Park was an indoor carnival in Dallas from the 80s. It focus wasn’t newfangled arcade games, but rather old fashioned carnival attractions including boats and carousels and the like. Unfortunately, Pennywhistle’s unwillingness to change allowed Showbiz Pizza and Crystal’s to swoop in and become the birthday party destination of choice. It closed in the very early 90s and has since become a tree nursery, which is fairly depressing.
