Today’s Shirt.Woot shows us that even cephalopods have off days. I sure hope this guy doesn’t have a meeting today, because I hear Corporate is looking for any excuse to lay people off.

This shirt (Kelly Green in a variety of Mens, Womens, and Kids sizes) is $10, today only, while supplies last. As far as I can tell, most Woot designs are re-offered later for about $15, but jump on it now if you want to the cheap price. Buy it NOW (Wed., March 16) from Shirt.Woot!

Hey look, it’s another shirt from Threadless! Clearly inspired by The Pirates of the Caribbean movies, “Kraken Snackin'” depicts the fate that befalls so many unfortunate sailing vessels. There’s a lot to like about this design; the blood-red tentacles, the massive disc of the full moon, the snapping rigging lines, the tiny airborne sailor…but I think my favorite detail is the lone parrot winging its way to freedom.

Guys and Girls Tees (Asphalt Regular Fit) still available in all sizes for $20. Buy it now from Threadless!

If you have to go, go out in a blaze of glory. And by “blaze of glory” I of course mean “a fight with a space squid, using some kind of laser staff, while standing on the outer hull of your rocket ship which is careening at full speed into fiery oblivion.”

This is a new reprint of an old design that has been out of stock for ages. As of this writing, it costs $20 and is available in all Guys and Girls sizes. Buy it now from Threadless!

I found each of these impressive examples of octapodian body art on the Tumblr blog All Things Under Water. Wherever possible, I’ve included artist/source information.

heathurrrhippo.tumblr.com says, “This is my octopus just after it was done around 2 years ago. The redness is mostly just irritation and is all just gray shading now.”

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that’s OK because CEPHALOPOD LOVE OBSERVES NOT YOUR PUNY HUMAN HOLIDAYS!

Currently sold out, so you may want to keep an eye on the W+K Studio blog for any news.

Back in June, as you may recall, I posted this image from the History Channel reality Pawn Stars.

I have been unable to track down anything about this hoodie, but in the comments on my original post, a helpful reader named Jeremy has just informed me about the following URL: www.souloctopus.com. As you can see here, this is clearly the same “Soul Octopus” logo, but, sadly, the site is under construction. Picture 31

Jeremy tells us that this holding page has been there for at least a few months, so who knows when the Soul Octopus will finally give up its inky secrets?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

“CephaLovePod” by Phineas X. Jones

Google Doodle 2/8/2011 - Jules Verne 2

Here are two different screen shots of today’s Google Doodle, an interactive journey to the depths of the ocean as viewed through a series of brass portholes (naturally spelling out the word “Google”). When you mouse over the little joy stick, you can spy a cornucopia of sea life, including: flying fish, jellyfish, a Megamouth shark, a trio of nautiluses, and the tentacles of an enormous cephalopod.

Joyeux Anniversaire Jules!
