‘The House Romero Built’ T-Shirt Discount, Anyone?

Posted by Peter Hall - January 12th 2009 @ 6:31 pm

Back before Christmas ‘ole pal Joe Fitz sent me a link to a T-Shirt at Mediocore Clothing called The House Romero Built featuring a chronological collage of Romero’s more iconic flesh eaters.  Instinct kicked in, I broke out the Pay-Pal and promptly ordered a silver.  There was a bit of a delay in getting the shirts from the printer, so the tee only just now arrived in the mail.  I’m digging it, but more importantly you can dig it for even cheaper than I, should you be interested.

To compensate for the later than expected delivery, Jon Kruse at Meiocore included a non-expiring code for 10% off as well as a 25% off set to expire February 16th.  He also included a note to share it with your friends, so I’m doing just that.  If you’re interested, just shoot me an email and I’ll pass ‘em along.

    Those aren’t all “Romero’s more iconic flesh eaters” though. There are zombies in that picture that have nothing to do with Romero. The Tar Man in the centre is from O’Bannon’s “Return of the Living Dead” and the zombie on the left is from Fulci’s “Zombi”.

    Fair enough, my description wasn’t entirely valid, however the title of the shirt still stands as both O’Bannon and Fulci owe their debt to The House Romero Built.

    Not to be too geeky about it, but Fulci’s Zombie is a sequel of sorts to Dawn of the Dead, and Tar-Man’s Return of the Living Dead is taken from Russo’s novel sequel of Night of the Living Dead (even if in name only). So the connection’s pretty direct, actually.

    Hey Guys! thanks for the awesome words on my shirt design!

    It’s funny, I just googled the name and a crapload of blogs and links poped up linking to Jon store! I’m super happy with how the silver print came out (I don’t know if any of you got one or not..)

    Oh! and to clear up the confusion.. I am Adam Baker. the creator of this mighty flesh feast. LOL. And YES! I too am a hardcore balls to the wall zombie freak. the idea behind this design was not just to have Romero zombies on there, but to have other zombies that would not even exist if it weren’t for Romero..

    If you notice, Fulci’s zombie is on there, as well as tarman, and even others like that doctor dude from planet terror, (yes if it werent for Romero, that movie would not exist either.) On the first draft I had Micheal Jackson from thriller and Shaun and “Bloody Mary” from Shaun of the Dead, but they got scrapped and replaced by the Machete zombie and the very first zombie from NOTLD

    Needless to say… I too am a dork.

    Sweet! but I think you might be too late! I think they only have smalls left in men’s __ I’ve been getting tons of e-mails asking to restock… like I do that.. I just draw it. LOL..

    If they do not Restock, then I am going to try and get them to let me have the rights back to sell the shirts myself.

    thanks again man!
