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.

T-shirt #149: Pajamas: Earth Day

T-shirt #149: Pajamas: Earth Day

Another Pajama shirt. Second favorite these days.

Mr. T-shirt Blogger is taking a hiatus from the T-shirt blog for probably four days (that's the plan anyway). I will resume crazy, long, ridiculously complex posts that make your mind reel on Tuesday August 20th if not before.

I have scheduled this blog post to automatically publish on Saturday August 17th.


I wrote the above text on August 15th. I am pleased to announce that I am still here. I may not understand how the schedule function works as I set this post to publish this morning, and it didn't. Yesterday's post was also supposed to publish during my surgery and didn't. I published it later from my tablet while under the influence of strong narcotics.

UPDATE from Bronson hospital: I am recovering from having my prostate removed. I am all right. I am getting a lot of TLC from my amazing wife, and I am re-reading Marvels and Kingdom Come in advance of my Alex Ross post. Thinking about heroes, wonders, and marvels.

Thanks for reading!

PS: Today is my wife's birthday. I love you, hunny.
