Awesome fish, Bieber Punch, and Pro Bro

Hey errbody sorry we’ve been a little inconsistent with posting and such but we’re all cramming for mid terms. However, I’ve got spare time now and I have some interesting stuff from around the interweb to share

First up is a cool video I found about Cuttlefish (I swear it’s more interesting than it sounds). Cuttlefish and some other cephalopods have the amazing ability to make their skin look like practically anything. It’s actually as if their skin was an LCD screen.

If you’re the science type or just found that ability really cool, here’s a 6 minute clip that explains it in better detail and has more cool transformations.

So that covers awesome fish, and now you’re probably wondering what Bieber punch is.

BAM MOTHASUCKA 12 YEAR OLDS GETTIN KNOCKED THE EFF OUT BY JUSTIN BIEBER

And now for some stuff that’s actually related to our business, I have a new addition to Lil Bro is a Pro!

To give this some context my friend Janice Woo made a shirt a while ago with a super adorable dinosaur on the front. Russell saw it and came up with this:

What do you guys think? Post in the comments if you’d actually like to see this on a shirt!

Anyway that’s all I’ve got to say for now because I have an assignment due tomorrow. I hope you’re all having an easier time than I am šŸ˜¦

PEACE OUT

NICK

Thankful forĀ UnderageĀ FemaleĀ Dogs

Happy Thanksgiving from TYA! I hope you’ve all had a relaxing long weekend and will return to university with plenty of cash in your pockets!

As some of you may know, since I left for university,Ā my family recently replaced me with a dog . She’s a 3 month old mini-schnauzer named Indie. We’re training her to jump through hoops, shake hands, roll over, not crap on the carpet etc. and she’s learning surprisingly fast. Anyway here are some pictures. PREPARE FOR CUTENESS OVERLOAD

BUY A SHIRT FROM THOUSAND YEARS APPAREL

EVERY TIME YOU DON'T BUY A SHIRT 12 MILLION PUPPIES DIE

AND THIS SMALL CHILD TOO. OMG SO CUUUTTEEE

THEIR FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS

(By the way the boy in those pictures is my now 10 year old brother)

Sometimes if I sleep in she even wakes me up. HOW ADORABLE IS THAT

 

I swear this isn't what it looks like

Stay tuned because we’re going to post a video of Russell (my brother) chasing Indie around in circles.

Also, on the theme of Thanksgiving, here’s a 90 second Thai commercial encouraging people to spend more time with their loved ones. It’s pretty creative and pulls at your heart strings.

Did you get that? STOP READING THIS AND SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY.

But then come back and read some more after that.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

REUNITED and it feels so good (+the Lil Bro returns)

So we got together on Saturday, just like we said we would, and then in our excitement we FORGOT TO BLOG. So sorry!

But we have to say, it was a beautiful thing to be back together at last. We reshuffled stock, played with Nick’s new puppy, and discussed some exciting new design ideas. Extremely productive, as per usual.

We’ll be coming at you with new designs/styles/colours soon, as well as releasing a new video that we had a lot of fun filming, so keep checking the blog for updates!

In the meantime, have a great Thanksgiving weekend! We’ll see you back on campus and around town soon.

XOXO – TYA

PS. Today is Nick’s brother Russell’s birthday! He is the cutest kid ever and also a super talented graphic designer, as you saw here and here. Happy 10th birthday Russell! Also note that he is turning 10 on 10/10/10 – SO COOL.

Lil Bro is a Pro (Part 2)

Today’s addition is the aptly named “Messed Up Snowman.” I actually think it’s pretty clever!

At this moment, Russell has created 2 designs in 2 days, far out doing our current designers in terms of productivity. Also he’s cuter and makes less of a mess at my place. GET BACK TO WORK KEVIN AND DAVID WHY ARE YOU READING THIS WHEN YOU COULD BE DESIGNING SHIRTS

And actually, I don’t think this snowman thing is bad at all. If we touched it up a bit we could turn it into an actual shirt. What do you guys think? Leave a comment if you’re interested in seeing more of this.

See you later, Russell will be back with more soon

Lil bro is a pro (Part 1)

I’m starting a new series of posts called Lil bro is a pro. Ever since we started this t-shirt business idea, my little brother Russell Hassan has become very enthusiastic and tries to contribute ideas and designs. This first one is his debut piece entitled “Noobie Man”

I asked him to clarify his idea because… well it’s completely insane. I enjoy the clever interplay of lines and colour but I just don’t understand what noobs have to do with bat vampires. Oh well, no point trying to understand the mind of a genius.

Stayed tune for more shirt ideas from my little Picasso! I’ll have more tomorrow
