604 Republic Shirts Reviewed

604 Republic is into the nerdy, gamer mashup and they do a helluva job with it. Here are reviews of their best.

Soul Surfer T Shirt

by on May 15, 2011

Here’s a movie about the surfer girl, Bethany Hamilton, who lost an arm to a shark while surfing, but decided it was a good idea to continue surfing.

Of course, Wikipedia says the term soul surfing cropped up in the 1960s as describing surfing for the shear pleasure of surfing. This was before bullshit billabong surf competitions. Or apparel lines. Or groupies. Surfing for surfings sake.

A nice play on the Keep Calm and Carry On slogan that was pumped out by the British Government in 1939, during WWII. The saying really seems to have had a resurgence these days, which may be due in part to the fact that the world is starting to rapidly fall apart ecologically and economically. And, maybe the only way to really get a little break from the harsh realities is to play video games.

Jeeves 3000 T Shirt

by on May 14, 2011

Jeeves 3000 seems to be the coolest robot ever. Jeeves is a name for a butler, so this robot performs the butler duties like answering your door and polishing your silver, but he also cars for your small pets, goldfish and gerbil, makes the food, brings you drinks with umbrellas, cleans the windows, takes out the trash, sweeps the floor, vacuums the floor, puts the baby down for a nap, and walks the dog. Very versatile. Very efficient. Very worth the money, when you think of all the help it replaces. Of course, this thing is not for sale to the public because only a prototype has been built. Rumor has it a servant robot like this will cost upwards of $500,000, so you have to be in the upper crust of society to afford one.

This has the Marvel comics look and a very mysterious scene. Dude is falling and his bowler hat has flown off and his watch is trailing behind him. Did he jump under his own power as in suicide, or is this a murder situation. I’m thinking he got pushed because his facial expression looks a little shocked. I suppose even if you’re ending it because you’re a financier and you finally realized that you’re the scum of the Earth because you have lied, cheated, and scammed the world economy to the brink of collapse, you may jump on purpose but still have a shocked look because thinking about killing yourself, and actually being in the free fall are two entirely separate things.

This, of course, refers to the Dexter TV show and the protagonist’s proclivity for killing. Wait, can you call a serial killer the protagonist. This world may be coming to a close if the killer is the hero, but maybe I don’t know anything because I’ve never seen the show because my mom doesn’t let me watch it, because the content is too mature (forget the fact that I’m 40).

Among all of the unlucky things like black crow, spilled salt, crossed knives, ominous footprints, black cat, bones, the number 13, snake eyes dice, broken mirror, skull, ripped umbrella, and a ladder, you have glowing things that will bring you luck, including pot of gold, lady bug, Ace of Spades, star, horseshoe, acorn, crossed fingers, rabbit’s foot, penny, four-leaf clover, turtle, wishbone, heart, and a leprechaun.

This is funny. You have a game setup that matches one-on-one, but instead of Mortal Kombat, you have Plato and Socrates dueling it out with words of wisdom. Looks like Plato just dropped a super paradox combo, which Socrates is having a hard time refuting. Could be over soon. Who woulda thought that you could mashup philosophy and gaming so elegantly. I love the Philosophy Fighter T Shirt. Do you?

Halo The Chiefs

by on May 11, 2011

Mashup between the Halo helmet and a football helmet, and I’m going to throw in the hockey movie called The Chiefs. Of course, I don’t think 604 Republic has a particular passion for the Kansas City football team, especially since they’re from Canada, but they probably know quite well that the Spartan super soldier dude that fights the bad guys in Halo is called Master Chief.

Good God that’s a scary sight. Those Ewoks have that fighting spirit but just think if a little poison got in the blood and they went just beyond fighting for what is right and honorable. Then you have those tenacious little cuties scaring the bejeezus out of everybody, and that’s just plain terrifying because now you don’t know who to trust. Yeah, it’s cool when it’s a Storm Troopers head and spine, but will that little dude know where to draw the line.

Get the PredEwok T Shirt because it’s a beautiful mashup of Star Wars Ewoks and the aliens in Predator.

604 Republic knows how to do a mashup like nobody’s business. Believe it.

Sometimes a weapon is the only religion you need and the only thing that will get you through the night, thus this Star Wars Blaster T Shirt is highly appropriate for any and all that truly believe. Are there any geeky NRA members. They’ll probably dig this shirt as well. Whatever the case how about all of the detail about the blaster pictured on the shirt. 604 Republic did a highly commendable job, which is probably why you have already asked your mom for her credit card so you can get one or two of these.
Am I right? I am! There are 30 parts listed here, including…

This is a cool shirt, except that I think there should be some of the workers welcome their demise because they’re so hellaciously miserable in their cubicle, that any forced change is welcome, including death by fire-breathing office machine. Otherwise, this Office Apocalypse T Shirt is spot on wonderful, which is why you should buy it right now before the real apocalypse comes to town and your dollars are worth less than the leaves on the ground (and they’re on the ground in Spring because the weather patterns are completely jacked). Is that a gold fish is the water cooler? Is that dude in the foreground holding a hoagie (if so, that’s funny…he’s saving a sandwich rather than important documents or a lap top)? And, the cherry on top of this office machine with a mammalian brain, the tie dragging under him (which will ultimately be his downfall and the only hope for the rest of the businesses in the office complex his is just now starting to destroy.
604 Republic always has interesting concepts designed well. Think that’s a bold statement? Check it out for yourself.
