Big Fun: 33 Huge Reasons Why We Love Heathers

Big Fun: 33 Huge Reasons Why We Love Heathers

Oh, the fucking humanity. Jawbreaker. Mean Girls. The Sleepover. The Craft. Every bad girl subplot on Gossip Girl. None even come close to the dark surreality of Heathers, a movie that, to this day, no one will watch with me. Because at one point in my life — let’s say 1992 for convenience — I seriously watched this movie at least twice a week. It was in constant rotation for a while, along with Grease, Rock n’ Roll High School, and Barton Fink. Make of that what you will, and join me as I revisit a film that deserves a revival. (But, please, sweet baby Jesus, not a wretched remake.)...

“You Looking to Catch Something:” Stiles Top 10 Lines from Teen Wolf (Rewind!)

“You Looking to Catch Something:” Stiles Top 10 Lines from Teen Wolf (Rewind!)

Editor’s note: this is an oldie but a goodie. In honor of Halloween, we are rerunning it for your reading pleasure… Loyal readers of It Goes to 11 know that we heart 1985’s Teen Wolf here at FIC. The implausible story, the inspired comedic performances, the side-splitting dialogue, the feel-good conclusion — this fine flick has it all in spades. Michael J. Fox is certainly the star of the film, but in many ways Jerry Levine’s Stiles character (pictured below) steals the show with his self-assured preening, cocky chutzpah, entrepreneurial spirit, and rich, fantastically colored wardrobe. (Shameless reminder: we sell two of his attention-grabbing tees here and here.) For a...

Gimme Shell-ter: 10 Turtle Tees

Gimme Shell-ter: 10 Turtle Tees

Last week it was sharks, this week it’s… turtles! Some of these designs are clever; some of them are not. We’ll let you decide which is which. As always, click on the pics to link through. 1. Awwww shucks. This is like sickeningly cute… So adorable it merits demands a closer inspection: 2. Huh? WTF? OMG! 3. By contrast, this is a real crowd-pleaser with a message we can all support. Bonus points for the creative interplay of message and glow-in-dark, screen-printing tech. Demystified for the lay people out there: 4. Curious and deadly is always a combustible combination. That aside, I really...

Block Party: Seven Puzzling Rubix Cube-Themed Tee Shirts

Block Party: Seven Puzzling Rubix Cube-Themed Tee Shirts

Much as with movies, television programs and video games of the era, popular toys from the 80’s are providing today’s t-shirt designers (and moviemakers) with fodder for the creative process. In particular, the Rubik Cube — which has sold more than 350 million units since its creation by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Emo Rubik in 1974, making it the top-selling puzzle time-suck of all time — has emerged as a go-to motif for numerous graphic artists of a geeky or obsessive bent. Below, I’ve compiled a list of 5 7 smart shirts that feature or riff on the venerable 80’s icon in one fashion...
