Spring Weekend Tanks: A round-up for 2014

Last week, we gave you BCA’s line-up for Spring Weekend. This week, we bring you tanks on tanks on tanks. We understand how overwhelming it can be to prowl around on your Facebook newsfeed and various class pages in search of the Spring Weekend apparel that best expresses you, so we have consolidated that process and created a buyer’s guide.

Normally, we would publish this after spring break. However, with SW being only ten days after we resume school, most of the deadlines for ordering tanks will be at the end of this weekend! Get them while they are hot (and still available/without rush charges).

*IMPORTANT NOTE* – Be sure to check out the process for buying the tank that you want. In the case of Teespring campaigns, there will be a printing threshold. If not enough people buy a tank, it won’t be printed and everyone gets his/her money back. A couple of these tanks work through other online platforms, are only sold through spreadsheets, or are still using google docs to figure out whether they should order the apparel or not. Start being a responsible consumer early this year and stay updated on the status of your purchases. We have tried to link to as many FB events and teespring pages as possible, but, just like Pokémon, it’s hard to catch them all.

The artist-relevant: For everyone who wants to represent their favorite Spring Weekend artists, or, for everyone who has really bad short term memory and keeps on forgetting the line up, you can now wear them on your upper body. You have a choice between wearing an artist’s face, or the slightly more obscure/hip option of referencing their lyrics.

You’ve got your Lauryn Hill face, and arrow:

Chance, juice carton and plain text:

Diplo’s face, and a very intimidating Diplo-themed bear face:

We are still waiting on a tank featuring Andrew Bird.

The feminists: It’s really exciting this year to have a whole category of Spring Weekend tanks dedicated to feminism. You can go with the subtle fem-powered, the cheeky “D“, or the extremely catchy, Spice Girls-themed consent tank. Ask me what I want what I really really want. . .

The most significant gender difference: How to remove your shirt

The Evolution of How Women Took of their Shirts

If you ever enter in a room and see eight dudes attempting to remove their shirts, they’re not preparing for an orgy. Rather they’ve just been asked, “Have you ever noticed that men and women take off their shirts differently?”

I take pleasure in noticing the little things in life, because it’s the little things that usually provide the biggest awe. The discrepancy between men’s and women’s shirt removal provides me with this awe. But it’s not just that men and women have different ways of taking their shirts off, it’s that men look more like idiots when they do it. Continue Reading
