Answer: of course it does!

Highlights here in this sprawling, 21-minute (!!!) odyssey include a gaming-as-addiction montage (:38 seconds), a Pong tutorial from Jeff Bridges and Harry Dean Stanton (2:03), a three-piece tribute to Michael J. Fox (8:57), and a montage of digital dance offs (10:29)!

See a full list of the films as sequenced at YouTube.

Spotted on the Internet last week: a gallery of fake cereal box designs, most with a sugary, pop culture twist. Some of these have likely appeared previously on HYA, but two of my faves are posted below; you can see the rest here or by clicking on the image squares below.

figarmymensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
1. “The Girl Who Waited” is an interesting design because it occupies both the #1 and #2 design at RedBubble this week, as it is a collaboration between the frequently posted Megan Lara and the less frequented posted Harry Gordon, who have both posted the design on their respective accounts. So you can buy it from Megan or Harry, your choice.

figheather greymensffffff.2u2 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
2. “Workaholics – DEMAMP CAMP” is probably something to do with a movie I haven’t seen.

figwhitemensffffff.u2 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
3. “Owl” is probably the worst t-shirt that I’ve ever seen in the top 10, it is just awful… but I suspect this is another case of people using RedBubble as a printing service for some kind of of event. Even so…

figbrownmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
4. “Vintage Michelangelo” – Fair play to harebrained, this is nice work and I’m sure we’ll be seeing it at the daily sites soon.

figblackmensffffff1 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
5. “Dark Types – Faint Attacks” – Good thing that Kari Fry tagged this shirt otherwise I wouldn’t have known that it was something to do with Pokemon.

figgrass greenmensffffff.u2 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
6. “YOU ONLY YOLO ONCE – Workaholics” – This must be another reference to the movie Workaholics, otherwise this design needs to burn in a fiery pit.

figarmymensffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
7. “LNK” – Drew Wise drops a nice Game Boy design.

figblacklongsleeveffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
8. “Flatbush Zombies” – This is an unofficial design for a hip hop crew that I’ve never heard of because I’m not cool.

figblackmensfffffflightclub Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week (01/03/13)
9. “Flight Club (Galaxy)” – It was about damn time that we had a Flight of the Navigators tee.

10. “Push My Buttons” – This picture swept the internet recently with it’s combination of laughter and boobs (yeah, now you clicked the link), so this guy is cashing in on that with a keyboard design.

We’ve seen this design before, but I still like it at TeeFury.

I can’t decide if this is a bit too niche at Shirt.Woot.

I would much prefer this shirt without the numbers at RIPT.

Another week in which I question how and why certain shirts are popular in the face of all the other talent being displayed at RedBubble. It’s top 10s like this that make me think I could be a superstar designer. On the plus side, at least there isn’t a massive amount of plagiarism going on this week.

figwhitemensffffff1 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
1. “Ominous Pineapple” is a design that doesn’t make sense to me, the artwork is pretty good, but I couldn’t work out why it was #1 this week. Then I looked up ‘thecampingtree’ since it was a tag on the design. It’s some guy that has 48 million views on YoutTube for machinima videos. I’m in the wrong business.

figasphaltmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
2. “I am a Giddy Goat” is a design I’d seen earlier this week and I’m not surprised that is has become popular, as Lego designs seem to be a trend at the moment and The IT Crowd will always be good.

figbaby bluemensffffff.u11 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
3. “My Little Baloon [sic]” is acute design that I think might be inspired by Skyrim, as most Skyrim designs I’ve seen have ears/horns like that.

figsilvermensffffff1 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
4. This is the same guy as #1, why people would want to buy the logo shirt of a ‘YouTube star’ is beyond me, but market forces are clearly at work.

figwhitemensffffff.u2chestycloth 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
5. “Item Unlocked – The Chesty Cloth” – I get the joke, but I can’t really imagine people wearing it.

figcrememensffffff.u2 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
6. “Coastal” is simple but really nice, good for you S. Raja!

figarmymensffffff.u3theexiles 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
7. “The Exiles” is a shirt based on an online game called ‘Path of Exile’ that I’ve never heard of. It’s interesting how people can create things based on niches I’ve never heard of and make a success of them, makes you wonder what untapped pop culture resources there are out there that HYA isn’t covering.

figblackmhoodieffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
8. This (probably instagrammed) photo design has 57 comments on it which I think is the real reason why it’s in the top 10, because I can’t imagine that many people are buying a design based around the designers daughter getting here hair done on her 22nd birthday.

figblackmensffffff.u1drake 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
9. This design references a new song (called ‘Started from the Bottom’ as you’d imagine) by Drake.

figwhitemensffffff.u11 480x302 Top 10 tees of the week at RedBubble (22/02/13)
10. “Glasses” is a nice piece of artwork but I don’t like the way that it sits on the shirt.

Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week

by Andy on February 15, 2013

Time for our weekly look at the ‘top 10′ as determined by RedBubble. Please note that these are not the top 10 sellers of the week, which would be something interesting to see, but rather based on an algorithm that is influenced by views, comments and favourites, and as such can be quite easily manipulated, which is why we see lots of awful shirts in this list.

figblackmensffffff.u12 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
1. This is #1, this, this awful t-shirt design that makes a mockery of people that actually have talent and skill. I know it’s based on a meme, but that’s still no reason for it to be popular.

figwhitemensffffff.u2 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
2. Fair bet that this design is these guys using Redbubble as the POD for their event.

figsilvermensffffff.u4 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
3. I’ve got not complaints about this Hobbit design.

figblackmensffffff1 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
4. We saw this Studio Ghibli inspired character select design by Drew Wise at one of the daily sites earlier this week, and I’m not surprised to see it in the top 10.

figarmywomensffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
5. I’ve never knitted anything in my life, but this wool scarf design is still pretty neat to me.

figeggplantmensffffff.u5 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
6. I’m sure we’ll be seeing ‘Invader Time‘ on the daily sites soon, because that’s where silly mashups that don’t really make sense end up.

7. “A portion of proceeds from any apparel or sticker sale of this design will be donated to Grateful Heads, a charity that makes and distributes tie dye hats for individuals who have lost their hair due to treatment for various cancers.” Best Grateful Dead related charity name ever.

figslatewomensffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
8. Who would have thought that a bowl of raspberries could make for a popular t-shirt?

figarmymensffffff.u3 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
9. It flew right over my head, but about this is a Starcraft t-shirt, so I imagine that philtomato can expect a million orders from South Korea in the next week.

figasphaltwomensffffff 480x302 Top 10 tees at RedBubble this week
10. Here’s another design that you’d not expect to become a popular t-shirt, but it has 25 comments which I assume rocketed it up the charts.

{ 0 comments }

Time for another roundup of the top 10 ‘most popular’ designs at POD printer RedBubble this week. I’m quite surprised just how much the return of Fall Out Boy has influenced this weeks chart, I didn’t realise that they were that big. It’s also quite concerning to see the amount of copyright infringement going on in the popular page this week, is it my moral burden to start reporting items that very clearly shouldn’t be in there?

figwhitemensffffff.u9 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
1. “I choo – choo choose you!” by Guts n’ Gore – this is what I’m talking about, this is just a copy of Ralph Wiggum’s design, it’s hardly surprising that it’s popular in the lead up to Valentine’s Day, but it just shouldn’t be available.

figforestmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
2. Megan Lara makes an appearance (as usual) in the top 10 with this Aliens design.

figblackmensffffff.u11 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
3. I had to look this one up, this definitely copyright infringing design (and Disney tend to come down hard on this kind of thing) is for a marathon (and a half) that apparently takes place around Walt Disney World in Florida.

figwhitemensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
4. We featured this one earlier in the week so I am totally claiming responsibility for the popularity of this Grateful Dead x Dead Kennedys logo mashup shirt.

figbaby bluemensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
5. Apparently this shirt is based on a a song called “You’re the Voice” by John Farnham that I’ve never heard of before.

figwhitemensffffff.u1fallout 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
6. Ugh, kids have too much money these days if they’re buying this shirt.

fignavymensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
7. Well, at least this shirt has a little bit more style to it… but come on!

figredmensffffff.u2 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
8. If this Star Trek shirt can get on the popular list, then maybe someone like me with no talent should go into t-shirt design.

figasphaltwomensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
9. “Michael Nesmith in his Monkeeman get-up, going to save the day! Or, at least, call someone ugly.” You know what, I can’t find anything to complain about with this Monkees shirt… but I still don’t want to wear it.

figblackmensffffff.u71 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (08/02/13)
10. Apparently there are less than 50 orange-bellied parrots left in the wild in Australia, buying this shirt will result in a donation going to a charity that is trying to save the most endangered bird in Australia.

Time to take another look at the top 10 most popular t-shirts at POD company RedBubble this week. It’s interesting to see that the entire top 10 is different from last week.

figsilvermensffffff 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
1. “Allez Les Toon Army” is a t-shirt making reference to how my beloved NUFC have signed 5 French players (and one Swiss who I suspect will speak French) during the transfer window.

figwhitemensffffff 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
2. “The Last Update!” is a shirt that I don’t understand that may be about a game called Sly Fox… but I really have no idea.

figslatemensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
3. “Derpy in a box” is one for the Bronies.

figblackmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
4. “Mario Kombat II” is really nicely done and I suspect we’ll be seeing it on ‘tee of the day’ sites soon.

figlight pinkmensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
5. “I Choo Choo Choose You…” is an unlicensed (presumably) copy of Ralph Wiggum’s card to Lisa in The Simpsons.

figforestmensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
6. “Zelda is the girl” is a concept we have seen elsewhere before.

figsilvermensffffffmaxkeiser 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
7. “Max Keiser (Bye Y’all)” another shirt that I don’t understand, from what I can tell Max Keiser is some kind of financial journalist who must have a bit of a fan club.

figblackmensffffffelitelite 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
8. “Elite, Elite!” is a great Doctor Who design.

figblackmensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
9. “Hey Puddin” is a lovely Harley Quinn design in art nouveau stye.

figroyal bluewomensffffff 480x302 Top 10 most popular t shirts at RedBubble this week (01/02/13)
10. “They say NOTHING beats a good belly laugh” it’s a picture of a cat on a t-shirt… is this really all it takes to have a popular tee these days?

I’m going to be starting a new weekly regular feature on the site taking a look at the top 10 most popular t-shirts on RedBubble each week. I’m aiming to post this every Friday but there may be a couple of days each way depending on my schedule (because we all know I’m a very busy and important man). Expect to see lots of TV and movie references that I won’t understand and will be berated about in the comments.

notsayingimbatman 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
1. “I’m not saying I’m Batman…” by kevinlartees – It’s a fun idea, but the execution isn’t perfect, the text changes size a lot and the gaps between each line (I’ve forgotten the technical term for that) are a bit uneven as well. This is proof that the art doesn’t have to be perfect to create a popular shirt at RedBubble.

figarmymensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
2. “Just As Sane As I Am” by MeganLara – a gorgeous art nouveau style Harry Potter shirt from Megan Lara.

figwhitemensffffff.u2 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
3. “DOTA 2 Heroes” by MoazTheFreeman – it shows just how much I am out of the gaming world now that I didn’t even know Defence of the Ancients was a thing, and that DOTA2 was the second version of it.

figblackmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
4. “Sherlock Comic by harebrained – very nice Sherlock Holmes style comic cover.

figwhitemensffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
5. “On sugar mountain’…” by Valerie Anne Kelly – you know how I often say “different strokes for different folks? This is definitely one of those times, I certainly wouldn’t wear it, but we all know someone, probably an aunt, that would wear it, and love it.

figredmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
6. “Slayer of the Vampyres” by Tom Trager – Buffy meets Saul Bass with excellent effect.

figwhitemensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
7. “Do You Hear The People Sing?” by TheGhostParty – if there was ever going to be a Les Mis shirt in the top 10 now would be the time for it.

figwhite blackraglanffffff.u1 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
8. “Good Game, I Hate You, Good Game.” by Lindsay Fulda – I have no idea what this is or why it’s popular, but I assume that it has nothing to do with the BBCs octogenarian presenter Bruce Forsyth, enlightenment in the comments, please!

figcrememensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
9. “You Can’t Take The Sky From Me” by JenSnow – we’ve seen this quote from Serenity before in different ways, but I really like the type works on this design.

figasphaltmensffffff 480x302 Top 10 t shirts at RedBubble this week (25/01/13)
10. “Gandalf’s Eagle Transport Service” by Tom Trager – Tom Trager with two items in the top 10 this week, this time with a parody ad of Gandalf’s Eagle Transport.

Post image for Design By Humans pick their Best t-shirts of 2012

The staff over at DBH have got together to pick their favourite shirts that were released this year, and they’ve chosen a zombie tee as the #1 pick after they noticed that The Walking Dead was pretty popular. Frankly, I don’t even remember this shirt and wouldn’t really want to wear it, but clearly they and I are different people. They also picked a few other favourites that you can find after the jump.

Post image for 604Republic launch ‘The Geekout’ to entice geeks with pictures AND words

604Republic do a great job of snapping up designs and producing geeky tees that don’t patronise or rely on the joke too much, they’re always well designed with quality artwork and I respect them for that rather than going the fast & cheap method of random mashups that rely on an impulse buy rather than real quality.

In an effort to differentiate themselves further from other pop culture inspired t-shirt companies they’ve launched ‘The Geekout‘. This is essentially a blog, but it’s all completely unrelated to t-shirts, just lots of fun and original content that people who like their shirts will probably like. What impresses me about it is that it’s all original stuff, there’s now memes in there and it’s genuinely enjoyable to read, if I could work out a way to add it to my RSS feeds I would, but being a fan of their on Facebook should be enough for now to ensure I don’t miss an update.

You’re probably wondering what the devil Indie Minded is, well, it’s the rebranded name for Tee Gazette, the popular t-shirt blog which has now expanded to encompass all things indie, not just tees. They haven’t turned their back on shirts though, with this post showing their favourite shirts to enter the Storenvy market place last month.
