If you, like most of us nerds, don’t enjoy leaving the house to be thrust into the scuffle of in-person retail for your shopping, then look no further than DFTBA.com!

Right now (through Cyber Monday) everything (yes, EVERYTHING) on DFTBA is 20% off!

Check out some of the NEW merch we’ve also released today!

GLOW EDGE SHIRT- The glow in the dark Pizza John was such a hit, we decided to do another glow in the dark wonder- the No Edge! Hank chose blue because, in his words, “blue is more like space”.

DON’T FORGET TO BE AWESOME SHIRT- Designed by Hank himself, this shirt is perfect for someone who doesn’t want a huge/colorful design splashed across themselves declaring their nerdfighter status. It’s simple, it’s subtle, and it can be yours (with the Black Friday pricing) for only $16!

STOCKING STUFFER BUNDLE- Do you have a Secret Santa you need to buy for? Is your friend or sibling a nerdfighter but you’re not quite sure what to get them? The solution comes in a bundle of nerdfightastic fun- it’s a $30 value, normally retailing for $25, but with the Black Friday pricing you’ll only pay $20!

MICHAEL ARANDA STICKER PACK- These stickers are high quality and feature both the Einstein and Lincoln heads (with signature blond stripe, obviously), plus a reflective Michael Aranda logo!

THREE NEW NERDY BUTTON PACKS- Designed by Risa Rodil, these button packs come in three flavors- John, Hank, or Nerdy!

THREE NEW RHETT AND LINK HOODIES- Yes, you read right, THREE. Available on super soft American Apparel California Fleece, you can now sport the Rhett and Link Logo, the Randler/Mythical Beast Logo, or the Good Mythical Morning Logo while staying toasty warm in whatever chilly climate you might be inhabiting!

This sale only goes through 11:59pm EST on Cyber Monday, so get in your shopping soon!

We promised ourselves we’ll never look back, to leap into the dark, away from the track. To dangerous worlds we’ve long forgotten, making new friends and foes in return.

In great lands with castles and dragons above, we’d fight with the brave, we’d too fall in love. With wizards and princes, with maidens and dames; where each page we turn, there’re swordfights and flames.

To a scared little boy, who has just turned four, who can’t even sleep with a closed bedroom door. He’d beg his dear momma to read him a tale, for a while he’d be lost between fantasy and real.

He then promised himself he’ll never look back, to leap into the dark, away from the track. He’d create new worlds that won’t soon be forgotten, weaving his very own magic in return.
