Irish, St. Patrick, Shamrock, Green, Leprechaun, and Beer?

March 3, 2013 Leave a comment

Have you ever wondered how all these things are related to each other? As we loaded up our St Patrick Day T-Shirts, I did a little research, and here it goes: St Patrick had an interesting early life. He was born as British-Roman and was kidnapped by Irish at age sixteen.  After escaping he became a priest and went back to Ireland to advance Christianity to Irish, who were polytheist back then.  Now the tricky part, he used a Shamrock to explain the Trinity concept.  I do not think he related beer and shamrock in his teachings, but fortunately for beer lovers, a shamrock represents the Irish taste today for dark or light beer, warm-blooded Irish women, and a jolly good time at the nearest pub. Green is known to first have shown in the uniforms of the soldiers in the 1798 rebellion on March 17th.  Since then this day is known and celebrated by the Irish as the St. Patrick day. It is a national Holiday in Ireland and that starts explaining the beer. Now, how about that Leprechaun?  Well, I learned that these fairy tale characters were already in Irish folk tales but the combination of Leprechaun and beer provide a nice opportunity to explain what happens when you take in more beer than enough!   At teesnthings.com, we love the St. Patrick day, Irish, and Beer themed t-shirts. if you are getting ready to hit the nearest pub with your best Irish or Irish-loving friends, we have the t-shirts for you. Here are a few new irish t-shirts at the store:

UFC – Don’t want to be in the cage!

December 9, 2012 Leave a comment

Watching UFC on Fox tonight, I realized that although some may find it violent, the sport has many fans who find it entertaining. It is clear that it takes hard work, preparation, skills, and above all guts to get into a ring with one of these guys. There is almost no rules in how they fight and they can get hurt seriously at any point. However, these guys still go there fight to almost kill each other but then leave the ring with a handshake with the opponent.  Our collection of MMA and UFC t-shirts and cutouts seem to be the most popular. You can find memorabilia related to fighters like Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre in our UFC section of our store.  Here are a couple of our most popular UFC t-shirts.

Where do Zombies come from?

October 6, 2012 Leave a comment

The concept of the zombie was first introduced in the 1929 book, The Magic Island. In 1932, the movie White Zombie used the same voodoo zombie themes and became known as the first legitimate zombie film. Other movies based on zombie-themed books include I Walked With a Zombie and The Serpent and the Rainbow.

A more modern zombie concept, different from the one inspired by the Haitian religion unlike the first, emerged in popular culture in recent decades primarily inspired by the book, I am Legend. The movie The Night of the Living Dead is the first of its kind featuring this new kind of zombie and it lends a highly popular theme to our horror movie t-shirts. The monsters in the film and its sequels, such as Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead and Zombi 2, are usually hungry for human flesh although Return of the Living Dead introduced the popular concept of zombies eating brains. There is usally no explanation to what makes these dead bodies reanimate. They usually come out looking for human flesh or brains. Although this modern version resemble the original concept based on the Haitian tradition, many consider George Romero to be the progenitor of the concept. Zombie fiction is now a a cornerstone of the horror genre.

There are many t-shirts from zombie-themed movies at our site teesnthings.com.  We also recently loaded up on new halloween designs. Here is our most popular:

Halloween Humor on T-Shirts

October 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Halloween is the time for fun for most of us.  Halloween comes from All Hallows’ Eve which is an annual holiday observed around the world on October 31, the eve before the Western Christian feast of All Hallows. It is argued that All Hallows’ Eve initially incorporated traditions from pagan harvest festivals and festivals honoring the dead. Typical Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (also known as guising), attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. Weather would be cool in most places so a hoodie or a sweatshirt will come in handy. If you are going to a party, then you may want to check out some of the funniest halloween or zombie t-shirts.

For many people, t-shirts from horror movies make great gifts. Our horror movie t-shirts are officially licensed and designed by the best t-shirts designers. You will look great while making a statement about your taste in horror movies. Here are a few examples:

How to make it a football day?

September 20, 2012 Leave a comment

2012 NFL season is underway. As a t-shirt aficionado and a football fan forever, I always wondered why the NFL games were on Sundays. Well we have high school games on Friday nights. Why it is exactly like that, I cannot tell but I heard the theory that a Friday night game allows Saturday homecoming dance. Then, Saturday is our college game day. It appears that the reason might be that campus life is interruptible on a Saturday and most students go back to studying on Sunday afternoons. This left Sundays to NFL. I think the other reason is that many people do not work on Sundays and they can keep watching games spread over on entire Sunday afternoon.   So for a real football fan, important days of the week start with Friday and end on Monday night.  Now, teesnthings.com has a great collection of NFL team t-shirts to make your Sunday a warm and good looking football Sunday.

Random thoughts on Olympics, Sports, and T-Shirts

August 12, 2012 Leave a comment

2012 London Olympics are over and count down started for Rio 2016 today.  Last three weeks have been great. Thanks to NBC that is on public air, I never watched so much beach volleyball in my entire life. By the gold medal game, I could tell a team playing very well and organized from the others.  What I learned is that this is not just a fun game played by women in bikinis but a game of strategy, talent, and hard work.  Water polo was equally interesting. I never knew there was so much pulling, pushing, and poking in any game. I though ice hockey was hard but I now think water polo beats it in the strength that you need to have. There are games that I still don’t get like synchronized swimming and artistic gymnastics. I guess you really have to watch them enough to learn what makes one better over the others – for now they all look equally good or bad to me.  After all those sports days, I am struggling to go back to watching summer golf but I must say I am grateful to the large variety of sports themed t-shirts at teesnthings.com to remind me the fun we had over the last three weeks. Here are a few that made me smile:

Humor to Go!

I was at an art festival recently where there were men, women, and children of all ages.  Many of those people wore a t-shirt, reminding me that it really is the most popular garment style. What was more interesting is that many of the shirts – regardless worn by men, women, children – had some sort of funny novelty design. We have many such designs at teesnthings.com. Here are a few to check out:
