Time to Hit some Hills

It’s a beautiful morning.  Should I relax and take the day off or should I hop on my bike and hit the hills.  I just started riding about 18 months ago.  I consider myself to be a runner who rides to balance my training.  But more and more, I find myself enjoying the bike as much as I do running.  You can cover a lot of ground in a short timeframe.  There’s always a breeze when you ride.  And finally, I’m becoming addicted to Single Track and the fear/excitement that comes with knowing every turn could plant me on my behind.  Now that’s living.

 

The evolution of Mario

I remember being fourteen and playing the original Mario Brothers arcade game for hours. Twenty years later I bought one of the machines for my basement. Now I watch as my three sons play new Mario games and am amazed at his longevity.  Of course he’s changed quite a bit over the years.  He grew a bit, his features became sharper and overall his look came into greater focus (due no doubt to the jump from 8 bit to 64 bit and beyond.  Here’s a quick snapshot:

As you can see, this might have been a great shirt design.  However, we feel that Mario goes beyond just himself.  We proudly present our Mario Evolution shirt.  From sticks to joysticks to no sticks (motion detection that is).

 

 

Vegan with a side of humor

Vegetarianism too easy for you.  Try being a Vegan.  Not that it’s difficult to follow a Vegan Diet (we actually eat very well and in most cases have a more diversified diet than non-Vegans.  No, the difficult part is answering the never ending list of questions:

1) Don’t you miss cheese/ice cream/butter, etc.?

2) If everyone went vegan, wouldn’t animals take over the world?

3) Do Plants feel pain?

4) Where do you get your protein?

5) Do you eat fish?

6) Wouldn’t cows explode if we didn’t milk them?

7) Don’t you care about people as much animals?

8) Where do you get calcium?

9) What do you eat, salads and tofu?

10) Are you Vegan all the time?

My personal favorite is #4.  I get asked at least twice a week where I get my protein.  I won’t bother answering all of these questions for you now, but perhaps in a future blog post.  In the mean time, here are some great new Vegan Tee designs available in the store.

Mixed Martial Arts, Engage

This is one of my favorite designs on our site.  As a former student of a Philippine Stick Master I appreciate the training required to become great.  As the father of 6 children I also appreciate the ability to create great art.

Only 43 days until Christmas!! Too Soon?

My neighbors put up their Christmas decorations this weekend.   Now my children want me to put ours up.  I told them we were sticking with ‘my’ tradition and waiting until the day after Thanksgiving.  What do you think?  Is it too early to start with the decorating and the tree trimming and the ho ho ho-ing?

The Evolution of T-Shirts

We’ve designed quite a few Evolution themed shirts recently and expect to do quote a few more.  From athletics to creativity to Mario, it seems that evolving is popular.  In some cases it can be argued that the evolution went the wrong direction.  Do you agree?  Are there other evolution shirts you’d like to see.  Let us know.

 

Save 2nd Base: National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We have a few Pink and Cancer Awareness designs on our site, but we saw this one on ebay and liked it.  It gets the point across with humor (a little crude, but that’s the charm).  With the month coming to an end it will be interesting to see if these shirts are still selling next month.  You can click on the shirt to be taken to the seller’s ebay store.

Shopping is my Cardio!

As I’ve mentioned before I like to run. A lot. If it weren’t for running, my love of wine and chocolate (and beer and doughnuts, etc.) would surely have done me in by now. After all, can you think of another way to burn off thousands of calories in 4 hours (don’t answer that)? Mountain Biking, Hiking, Swimming, Weights and now Shopping are all excellent ways to get in shape (OK, I’m not sure I buy shopping yet, but it’s on a tshirt so it must be true.)

 

Here Comes Halloween!!!

Only 2 more weeks left to Halloween.  I thought I’d post some more of our new designs before it was too late.  You can find these and more here:    Have a great night.

A few new Republican Designs

We’re just 5 weeks from the election for President of the United States.  As an equal opportunity tshirt printer we have designed some Republican designs as well as some Democrat designs (with a few Independent designs thrown in for good measure).  We’ll be fair tomorrow but for now here’s some of our Republican Designs.
