blur Racing: Power-up Shirts

So the game blur comes out tomorrow (5/25/10) on the PS3, XBOX 360 and PC. Having played the beta a decent amount, I can say that it is a very fun racing game that covers alot of the stuff that makes arcade racing fun rather than frustrating.

However, it does allow enough customization and require enough skill to make it worth playing over and over. Therefor, everyone should play it and beat me at it (as I know you will). Like Mario Kart, it uses power-ups for fun and fighting.

Now available in the Entertainment / Parody section of my shop. I’ve got some shirts sporting the power-ups.

Here’s a closer shot of the Nitro Power-up T. You can customize the color of the shirt, but I’m not sure how great that would turn out. I’ll make the Shield and Bolt if there’s any interest.


I know I’m all over the Shunt because that’s the only one I know how to use. I stink.

Euro Oval Stickers & The Decline of Civilization


Back in ’69 most European license plates looked the same.  So in an effort to distinguish it was required that you apply a sticker with your country code of origin.

Later it became cool to put stickers of places your ancestors are from that you’ve never been to because many could only identify with their heritage as they lacked any personality of note.

Identity Ovals

Then it was quiet and suddenly, out of the silence came a shitload of stupid novelty oval stickers that were basically the equivalent of Calvin peeing on something only less funny and more low brow than a “no fat chicks” sticker (which lacks the subtlety of the “free mustache rides t-shirt).  Many even had pictures, can you believe it?  Even worse, plenty were showcasing agendas.

Absurd Ovals

Today, we’ve risen above the bad taste and simply have stickers that are so personalized that they’re unidentifyable.  Is that a football team, a tv show or an internet meme that’s over my head?

Oh it’s your alma mater? Well sir, they owe you an education because you are clearly a dipshit!
