thinkgeek coupon code

I just saw this ThinkGeek coupon code in their newsletter and thought I’d pass it on. Use the coupon code TRICKSY between now and midnight (EST) on March 25th and you’ll get $10 off your order of $50+. Judging by the name of the code this is intended for April Fool’s orders, but I don’t think there’s anything stopping it from working on everything in the store.

the IT crowd t-shirts

Unless I’m very much mistaken this is the last episode of the season, it is unfortaunate how British series tend to have shorter runs than their American counterparts (22 episodes in a typical full season?), because it’s nice having something on British TV to look forward to each week other than Top Gear or football, and because The IT Crowd has meant a lot of people have been visiting HYA, and the more people that visit here the more likely it is that I can turn writing about t-shirts into a full-time job, which is pretty ridiculous, but hey, someone’s got to do it. Actually, they don’t, but it is a lot of fun so I’d like to carry on.

If you missed the show on Friday night it is available on Channel 4OD, but I’ve always found that site to not be so friendly to my PC, so I was happy to find the whole show streamable on the Channel 4 YouTube page. I’m not sure if the YouTube stuff has the same 1 week expiry as the main 4OD site, so that video might disappear by Friday, and chances are it’s geo-locked too, so if you’re outside the UK you’d have to get a bit creative if you wanted to watch it.

All my waffling in the previous couple of paragraphs probably suggested something to you, this episode was not stuffed full of t-shirts, in fact it didn’t contain much of Roy at all, unsurprisingly focusing upon Reyholm. Still, Roy did wear one t-shirt in the show, one which probably made a lot of people sitting at home think “I wonder if our IT guy does that?” because Roy’s tee stated “I read your e-mail” in a style so simple that it was immediately recognisable as a shirt from ThinkGeek. The shirt costs from $15.99 and you can buy it at ThinkGeek.

The IT Crowd t-shirts Series 4 Episode 4

As a side note before we get into the traditional meat of The IT Crowd t-shirt roundups, after listening to Pirate FM in Cornwall when I was on holiday me and my girlfriend were inspired to watch The Boat That Rocked a film inspired by the pirate radio station Radio Caroline that operated from a boat (it was in international waters and therefore not governed by British law). I was under the impression that Pirate FM was the legit ‘child’ of Radio Caroline, but I actually completely wrong. Still, it’s a good, funny film, and I thought I’d mention it because Chris O’Dowd and Katherine Parkinson (Roy & Jen in the IT Crowd) are both in the film, so you guys may want to check it out.

Anyway, on with the show (almost literally), the first tee worn by Roy was just a plain grey shirt, naturally, I’m not going to track down the brand, if you want to be just like Roy go and get a grey shirt from Primark or American Apparel.

The second shirt had already been found for me by @RustyBransteinX which did make my job rather a lot easier. The OMFG t-shirt comes from ThinkGeek and the acronym is for the little-known Ontario Mega Finance Group the investment company that lots of teenagers apparently enjoy talking about. The t-shirt is $15.99 and it can be purchased here.

Roy’s third shirt of the evening was a bit more troublesome to hunt, and not just because of Roy’s hot girlfriend being on view. It was a dark scene, but after taking about a dozen pictures and playing with the levels on them I managed to make out the writing “don’t even think about tagging me” which is actually pretty good advice for those people that think it’s fun to tag photos on Facebook of their friends in compromising positions.The tee is available from Balcony Shirts for £12.50. As I do try to be a bit of a completist with these things, I had a quick look around for the other tee in this pic, the one with the crossed guitars worn by the orphan. I haven’t been able to find the same tee, but I have found what I think is the same graphic on an apron at Spreadshirt, and with it being spreadshirt to can customise these thing to your heart’s delight, and that includes putting the design on a pink t-shirt with black print.

Fourth tee of the night was easily recognised as Roy has worn it before, “Nothing is any good if other people like it” is a Diesel Sweeties design. However, I can’t find the shirt anywhere in their store, so it seems as if they’ve stopped selling it. Still, there’s plenty of other cool shirts in their shop. Also, how good was this scene? There isn’t nearly enough mashed potato based comedy on TV.

And that’s your lot for this episode, I will post episode 5 tomorrow, and then you can expect the episode 6 recap (last episode of the season, sob) early next week.

The IT Crowd t-shirts Series 4 Episode 1

Took me a little bit longer to get around to watching the show than I expected, what with the Brussels trip and all, but it was a good episode to open this fourth series of The IT Crowd, not amazing but a enough laugh out loud moments to keep me happy and looking forward to the next episode.

The first tee from the episode can be seen at the top of this post, it says “NO.” and it’s from Think Geek. It’s not exactly the best tee in the world, but I presume that there’s quite a lot of people in IT departments across the world that wear tees from ThinkGeek, so there’s a nice nod towards realism there. If you’d like to express the word “NO.” emphatically on a t-shirt, the tee is $15.99 and you can buy it here.

It was pretty easy to work out where the second tee was from, since I’d been tweeted about it days before. The shirt is based on The Ring, the Japanese version presumably, not the not-quite-as-scary American version. It can be purchased from Dark Bunny Tees for £19, but be quick because they’ll only sell 100 of them and then it’s gone, and judging by the amount of people that visit HYA looking for IT Crowd shirts, it might be gone fairly soon.

The last tee of the night was a riff on the familiar “Home Taping Is Killing Music” graphic that has been around since the music industry became afraid of people. There are a lot fo designs around based on this image, but I’m fairly sure that this t-shirt from 8ball is the same one as in the show, and you can pick it up for £17.50 (and not just in olive).

I wonder who will turn up next week!

ZOMG Put Your Legos on a T-Shirt!

by Andy on September 18, 2009

09 09 16 feature 480x332 ZOMG Put Your Legos on a T Shirt!

Please don’t give me bother about whether it’s spelled Legos or not, I don’t know what the official term is, and really, is it that important when there is such a ridiculous t-shirt to be talked about?

Yes, I think ridiculous is most certainly the word. If this was a t-shirt for kids then I think I could let it slide, but they don’t even sell kids sizes, this tee is intended for adults, well, people old enough that they should be adults by now. Still, Halloween is coming up, so there’s a decent real-world, non-ironic-hipster use for this tee. I guess I’m going a little bit overboard, it is quite a clever concept from Think Geek, but I just can’t imagine anyone actually wearing this.

Costiness=$19.99 Available from Think Geek

theitcrowds3e3t shirtroundup 480x359 The IT Crowd S3E3 T shirt Roundup: Damn these electric sex pants!

From watching the show, I had presumed that this weeks tee scavenger hunt for The IT Crowd was going to be a tough one, but in reality I managed to hunt down both of the t-shirts Roy wore in the episode.

If you haven’t seen the show, you’re probably wondering why there is a topless man at the top of this post. Well, I don’t want to give away the plot, but Roy ends up shirtless for quite lot of the show, which is probably great for those of you that are into not-particularly-toned Irishmen (not that I’m anything to write home about!).

The first tee Roy wore in the episode was this white shirt with a number of small hand drawn graphics on it and the text “a series of tubes” written underneath. Any geek worth their salt, knows what that’s a reference to, and for those of you that don’t, it’s a quote from corrupt former-Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, who was explaining net neutrality to the Senate. The tee is by Think Geek, costs $9.99 (though as it is on its ‘last chance’, it probably won’t be reprinted, so be quick) and can be bought here.

Roy then went off being all topless and stuff and we didn’t see him wearing another tee until the closing credits in which he was struggling to wrestle his jacket off an elderly woman. The was a quick shot in which I got a good look at the tee, which had the words Ludovico Technique written on it. The Ludovico Technique is of course the “fictitious drug-assisted aversion therapy from the novel and film A Clockwork Orange.” A quick google told me that the tee came from British label Last Exit To Nowhere, costs £17.50 and can be purchased here.
