After reading Seth Godin’s latest blog entry on t-shirts, brands and popularity I got to thinking about the kinds of pop culture emblems I was wearing, purchasing for others, or coveting for Christmas.
High on the list and in my mind is the “Dick in a Box” t-shirt from Busted Tees. Barely 48 hours after the SNL Digital Short of the same name they’d distilled a set of instructions from the lyrics into a piece of wearable hipness.
I want one badly. I may have to order tonight to ensure I get one early enough in 2007 to still be relavant. Things move so quickly on the internet.
Half of my Christmas wish-list was t-shirts, distilled from an ongoing “tshirt” tag I’ve been cultivating on my del.icio.us account for a few years. Two shirts I actually received as gifts, the Lebowski Abide shirt and the Intramural Zombie Hunter shirt, came from this source.
A few I didn’t get but will definitely purchase now that my wallet is fat with holiday cash:
- Lost A Wheel
- I Appreciate The Muppets on a Much Deeper Level Than You
- Rock Concert I Attended
- I Love Zombies
Not timely anymore, but still funny/retro-cool as hell.
For obvious reasons given the name/url of this blog.
Jenn and I don’t go to many concerts and most band t-shirts are either too poorly made or festooned with all manner of tour dates. Me? I just like logos and pitchers, so this is right up my alley.
A potential counterpoint to my Intramural Zombie Hunter shirt.
My favorite blog CMS deserves some love.
Plus, I got a very cool Dooce shirt for Jenn. Support your internet/local blogger, that’s my motto.
Maybe I’ll start selling shirts again soon. Or contribute to Threadless.
Or just wear one of these shirts.
