Four new shirts at BustedTees this week

Post image for Four new shirts at BustedTees this week




I’m just going to geek out over that Shining inspired shirt for a second. The image they’ve used for the graphic is actually of the Timberline Lodge in Oregon (where parts of the movie were filmed), but the actual inspiration for the film was The Stanley Hotel which is in Colorado (they have the film on a continuous loop on channel 42 in the guest rooms), I can’t decide which building they should have used on the tee, but it’s pretty cool either way. Solid week of design at BustedTees.

Daily Tees & News for December 19th

80s movies t-shirt

Sorry about the intermittent service on HYA recently, our wireless router failed last week, I ordered another on rush delivery from Amazon and when it arrived it wouldn’t work, and our backup router is quite old and a little flakey which doesn’t help things. There is another router on the way from Amazon though, so hopefully all of this will be sorted out before I go on my traditional Christmas break.

Wow, there really were a lot of iconic movies released in 1985, cool shirt from TeeFury.

boardwalk empire t-shirt

Hope everyone had a good weekend, I did, during my snowboarding lesson at the dry slope it started to snow!

I can’t be the only person that feels kind of scared when this guy comes on screen during Boardwalk Empire, right? Definitely some fine acting going on there. TeeFury.


RIPT have a shirt that I’m sure will not anger any Star Wars or Star Trek fans.


Qwertee have dropped a Shining/Joker shirt for Jack Nicholson fans.

the shining movie t-shirt

I have no idea why they’ve added the glasses to this picture (they are added, right?), but I think it gives the shirt a twist that makes you give it a second look, and it’s a pretty good image for a tee to start with. That mockup is a little bit shady though, show us the real thing!

Costiness=£19.99 Buy it at Zest Clothing

The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

by Andy on December 18, 2008


I have sad news to report friends, after a few good weeks writing about this seasons IT Crowd episodes, I’m afraid this week is a bit of a failure. After spending a while trying to work out where Roy’s tees came from (which is why this post is a few days late compared to usual), I’ve only managed to find one of the three tees.

The first tee worn by Roy in the episode (pic at the top of this post) had a bit of a Japanese feel to it, seeing as it has some Asian looking text on it and what looks like a series of characters beneath it. I don’t even know where I’d start looking for this tee, so I throw myself open to your suggestions.


The second is pretty easy, in theory, it’s a design with a slogan of some kind on it, usually I just have to Google that, and voila, I remain “that guy who find The IT Crowd shirts.” Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to work out what the slogan says, I’m pretty sure that the final word being said by the character is ‘time’, but that isn’t much help without the rest of it. It has the look of a webcomic style t-shirt, so maybe someone out there might be aware of which webcomic it is, and then I’ll have some breadcrumbs to follow and hunt it down.


I’m glad that it was the last tee in the show that I managed to find, because then you’ll go away from this post thinking “sure, that sucked a bit, but at least he found one,” instead of, “dammit Andy, you’re such a loser, and you keep forgetting to link to things in blog posts!”

The Overlook Hotel, for those of you who arewondering why Roy would be promoting a hotel instead of his usual geek-chic, is the hotel in The Shining. The tee is available from Last Exit to Nowhere and costs £17.50.


Something else I noticed in the show was that Roy appears to be a fan of a blog called “Why, That’s Delightful” which is of course (of course!) written by the show’s writer and creator Graham Linehan. Except, he was actually looking at something else.
