T-shirt #147: The Xavier Institute for Higher Learning - Logo One
Okay, so I lied. If you are following closely, I promised another comic book artist today, but that is proving to be a much more time consuming entry than I first realized, and I want to give it more thought. Here's a hint: I am going to re-read Marvels and Kingdom Come. Those who know comics now know the artist I have in mind. Plus, I have mentioned him before in these pages and mentioned him among my favorite artists. Yowsa!
So, instead of the artist formerly known as Mr. Thursday, I might have presented another plan that I had for today, which starts with an H and ends with a -Wart's with an OG in between because Harry Potter saved my life. But this story will also need to wait for another time.
Though Grading Robot has been powered down, chris tower has much to do today, much of it is self-care.
Unless my plans change (and don't be surprised if they do), the next four days will be pajama shirts as I take a brief hiatus and yet continue to post a shirt each day.
Thanks for reading!
Make mine Marvel!

365 T-shirts - the reasoning
This blog should be sub-titled: a journal of my life in geek.
I get my geek on with things about which I am geeky: comic books, Baseball, Ultimate, science fiction, my favorite bands, books I have read and loved, and Jungian psychology to name some of the most frequently traversed subjects.
I began this project simply as a way to count my T-shirts. I own a lot of T-shirts. But how many do I have? Do I have 365? We shall find out.
When I started this blog, I thought about how each T-shirt means something to me. I bought it for a reason, after all. I set myself the task to post an entry about a new T-shirt every day as a way to simply write something every day, a warm up for writing fiction, which is my passion. Writing is like exercise. Warm ups are good for exercise. But after completing a month of blogging about T-shirts, I have learned that this blog serves as a journal; it documents my life in geek, sort of a tour of my interests in pop culture. The blog serves as a tool for self-inventory, for assessment and analysis of self and the origins of self, for stepping through the process of individuation in catalogues, lists, and ranks.
The blog also made me aware that I have some serious gaps in my T-shirt ownership, and I am in the process of collecting some new T-shirts for several of the great popular culture icons that I truly love. Stay tuned.
I was also a bit surprised that people checked out my blog and continue to check it, read it, and even comment on it. I am very appreciative of this readership. Please feel free to share your thoughts in my comments section. I will respond.
Also, please note that I have moved the original introductory text to the side bar. And now, I present to you the most recent entry of 365 T-shirts: a journal of my life in geek. Thank you for reading.
