Wish List

The whole point of having a wish list is keeping it intact, so without further adieu here are some shirts that I might never buy.


  • Urban Camouflage” from Threadless
    This boy likes getting spanked, so a nice Medium might be in order.

  • Monday!!!” from Threadless
    I think this Monday shirt is a winner any day of the week.

  • “Spain: Where no means no!” from Busted Tees
    Or is it “no means no?”

  • I’d Hit That” from Busted Tees
    I want to get this shirt for my non-Mexican friend Dan, who seems to always bring it up whenever we talk about funny t-shirts.

More Threadlessness

Threadless released quite a few new tees in the past month and the results are as expected. The winner of the Nextfest design competition has been announced, and the rest of the designs include this cool art deco-ish premium tee, the usual emo fare, and a shirt I just don’t get. There is also further proof that Threadless is made for art students, by art students. The best of the bunch, however, is this striking illustration entitled “No More Bento.”

I’m also starting to like the shirt that looks like a bathroom wall, ever since I realized it has two sides, and a “NO SPANKING” sign on the lower black.

They also brought back “What Would McGyver Do?” one of the few Threadless tees that a fratboy would actually be caught wearing.

Threadless did the right thing by taking down the “I’d give my left arm to play drums for Def Leppard” slogan tee. It wasn’t terribly funny, whether you are familiar with the actual story, or not (more on t-shirts that shouldn’t have been made in my next post).P.S. Take a look at SplitTheAtom, a new British company which seems to have a very similar setup to Threadless.

Post 2.0: The blog t-shirt

I thought of this as one of the better t-shirts on TshirtHumor, even before I ever started blogging. Hopefully, I’ll be able to avoid this kind of narcissism. I am going to devote this post, however, to the elusive blog t-shirt, but before we get to the predictable blog swag drivel, here’s another blog t-shirt that’s actually good, from who else, but Threadless.

Not to say that this tee isn’t without blogtroversy, or that you won’t get sued (shot?) by your local Bloods chapter for ripping off their gang sign. If you’d rather avoid all that, here are some shirts inspired by the pure, unadulterated angst of blogging.

Ahh, nothing like an attractive female telling me that she doesn’t want to read my blog. Finally, here is an interesting site that manages to create a word cloud for your blog, or website, and print it on a t-shirt. This is what my word cloud would look like.

Now time for one last bit of geekyness, as promised in my previous post. If you check the Overture Keyword Suggestion tool (a very useful tool that includes data from the second largest search network) for the keyword t-shirt blog,  you will see that the term gets about 100 searches a month (much more on Google). Since the tool doesn’t differentiate between tshirt blog and blog tshirt it’s impossible to tell who was looking for what. Either way, I am likely to see hits from both searches because I have the two words in my domain name, and why not? I deserve the traffic!

Indoor gardening

As you are figuring out the best way to go about planting an inside garden, it is important for you to spend some time planning out your space.

Take your time in deciding which shelves you will use for your inside garden and how you will get those shelves set up.
