Cool Stuff: Back to the Future Past T-Shirt Mash Up

Back to the Future Past

It’s a rare occasion to specifically call out a single day’s Teefury t-shirt, but it’s a rare occasion for one to be this awesome. Popular Mondo artist Tom Whalen is behind the Wednesday March 26 design and it’s called “Back to the Future Past.” The image blends the characters of the X-Men with Back to the Future, in a similar time travel way to the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past.

This t-shirt, which costs only $11, is only on sale until midnight tonight, Easter Standard Time at Teefury.com.

Technically, we’ve still got one year to go before Marty McFly is due to fly in from 1985 in his DeLorean. But so far, it’s not looking all that likely that next year will deliver on the oddly ’80s-ish future promised in Back to the Future Part II. There are no hoverboards in the streets, the Jaws frachise stalled after four installments, and fax machines are growing more obsolete by the day.

Still, there’s at least one detail that’s sure to come true if Tinker Hatfield has anything to do with it. The Nike designer has revealed that power laces are indeed coming in 2015, just as Back to the Future Part II said they would. More on the announcement after the jump.

Del Toro Bleak House

Skywalker Ranch, the Pixar Campus, Quentin Tarantino’s home theater, Stanley Kubrick’s estate: all places a film fan would kill to visit, but few ever get the chance to see. Another spot undoubtedly on that list is Bleak House. That’s what Guillermo del Toro calls the additional house he bought to devote to his collection of cool stuff, including props, posters, toys, any -and everything you’ve ever wanted to own in the realm of sci-fi, fantasy, horror and movie memorabilia.

Most people never get to see it, but on the Criterion Collection DVD for Cronos, del Toro actually did a guided tour of the space. It’s been online for about a year, but we were just turned onto it. And it’s as awesome as you’d imagine. Read More »

Saul Bass Google Doodle

Almost every day, Google changes their homepage in celebration of some occasion taking place on that day. The Google Doodles celebrate events such as holidays, anniversaries, and famous birthdays. The one for today, Wednesday May 8, is possibly the best ever.

May 8, 2013 would have been the 93rd birthday of Saul Bass, one of the most influential graphic designers in history. An Oscar-winning filmmaker in his own right, Bass is best known for designing iconic movie posters for the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and John Struges as well as the credits sequences for films as varied as Psycho, West Side Story, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and Goodfellas.

Below, check out the Google Doodle tribute to Bass and read about another Bass tribute happening today. Read More »

Threadless Tees has released a line of t-shirts based on Marvel’s Spider-Man. The company challenged artists to design “a t-shirt inspired by the battle between Spider-Man and his archenemies.” And by archenemies, Threadless kept this limited to: Dr. Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Venom, Lizard, Kraven, Green Goblin, Vulture, Rhino, and Shocker. I found some of the contest entry rules funny, for instance — “The characters cannot be represented as children or animals” or “may not use actor likenesses or any logos in your design” and the expected no “blood and guts”, “political or adult content (sex, smoking, drinking, etc.)” Check out the winners after the jump, and buy them now on Threadless.
