Jurassic Park & World ~ Dino DNA Collection
Must go faster!
It has been quite a while since I've talked about t-shirts. The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Art of Evolution prints pretty much became all there was for me for eleven weeks, and since then I've been writing a really long post about the spectacular, bittersweet finale. That won't be done any time soon, so I'm finally getting back into the one-a-day t-shirt world (or fifteen-a-week, in the case of collections).
I was supposed to bring this sale to you last weekend, but that's when TeeFury moved to a new affiliate network and that's when I was kicked out of the program. I hadn't sent any customers their way in a while, because life happened, so I thought they no longer wanted me. Good thing I kept a cool head and worded my email to them as discouraged but curious rather than unleashing the wrath of a thousand gods. I personally find that the former tends to get better results.
Turns out it just was a mistake and everything was cleared up. But it coincided with a sale I'd been looking forward to of tees that celebrate Jurassic World, the already very successful third sequel to one of my all-time favorites. I have a number of movies I count as favorites, and only The Princess Bride I think I watched more than Jurassic Park, but only because I'm usually more in the mood for laughs. So those are my top two, and when clever t-shirts are designed with either of them in mind, I get excited.
This collection was supposed to end on June 22. Luckily, it seems the sale has been extended for another four days. Just for me? Haha, no. I assume it's because they added a bunch of other great shirts that they hadn't started the sale with, two or three of which I badly want, one of which I may just get. I really have to curb my spending, though. I recently fell madly in love with Twin Peaks and I've gone mad buying all the things.
To showcase here, I picked my four favorite shirts of the ones I don't own (Gotta Love Me and Jurassic Bingo) or haven't already posted/seen before (Jurassic Aquarium, Just Keep Flying, Dino DNA). Wow, Super Jurassic World is adorable with a bunch of Yoshis following Mario, but I'll save that for a looooong overdue post on ConsoleLife...if I can get to that later. Nah, I don't think I'll have the time since it's Father's Day. I'll be a bit busy. I also actually need to see Jurassic World. I'm always at least a week behind on every movie. But I heard good things from @docsaico and I'm really itching to see it. [Update] Ooh, just heard from my brother that we will be seeing JW today, very soon. I should go get ready now.
Tees start at $20 each and the shipping is more than reasonable, starting at $3. If none of these designs appeal to you, check out the rest of the Dino DNA Collection. The ones I mentioned already that I own or have posted before are highly recommended. [Update] I couldn't help myself. I bought the first two shirts below, Attack on Dinosaur - Blue (No Text) and The Raptor Squad. They were just too good to pass up. And I couldn't choose between them. One represents the old and I had to celebrate the new, since Jurassic World was a lot of fun...except for the people next to me giggling constantly at the most inappropriate moments. It's not always funny to see someone who didn't deserve it get eaten by a dino. Now I have to go again at a less crowded time so I can pay attention to the movie instead.
[Update, 7/24/15] Finally got to see it again, this time in a nearly empty theater. No one next to me being distracting. So much better. More fun, more emotional. I actually got a chill this time.
