(Second to) Last Play at Shea

Today’s shirt comes from what was supposed to be the last concert at Shea Stadium, before it was torn down. It sold out in about ten minutes, so another concert was announced two days later, and I couldn’t go to that one. I’m still a little bitter about that.

It was a great show, though. I got to sit on the field, hang from the home run fence, and stand in front of the dugout. It was awesome. Also, I took home some warning track dirt:

The concert was good, too.

Purchase location: Shea Stadium!
Purchase date: July 16, 2008.

Image Not Found

When I woke up this morning, I had an IM that the server had been down and was rebooted. I couldn’t get to half the pages, and it looked like my WordPress database had been deleted. It wasn’t looking good. I sent in a support ticket to have it rebooted again. It didn’t come back up, so I sent another one. I’m not sure what was wrong, but it came up correctly this time.

The first thing I did was back up my blog database with WordPress Database Backup. I’m going to set it up to email me a backup daily or weekly.

If I look a little pissed off in that picture, it’s because I was. Things seem to be back to normal now, though.

Purchase location: Jinx
Purchase date: Jan 25, 2008.

Free Good English!

So tired. If I’m going to keep taking pictures of my shirts in the morning, I’m going to have to start waking up earlier. I think that unfortunately means, I’ll have to start going to sleep earlier. Not really feeling like writing much about today’s shirt. I was going to try to fill this post with misspellings and grammatical errors, but I just can’t write that badly on purpose. It’s harder than it seems like it should be.

Purchase location: Glarkware. That link will hopefully work again when they’re back from vacation. I wish they’d just disable the add to cart buttons, instead of disabling the whole site.
Purchase date: July 6, 2008.

xkcd

Today’s shirt:

xkcd

xkcd is an awesome web comic. If you’re not reading it, you should be. Its tagline is “A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.” How can it not be good?

My favorite xkcd: (maybe. so many of them are so good.)

Duty Calls

Don’t forget to mouseover the comic image for the additional text. Also, do that on every xkcd comic you ever read.

Purchased from: xkcd store
Purchase date: Jan 2, 2008.

Pleepleus!

Today’s shirt comes from the show Three Sheets on the now defunct MOJO HD. Pleepleus is a stuffed monkey that traveled around with the host. He has his own MySpace page.

Pleepleus

Purchase location: MOJO HD store
Purchase date: June 2, 2008.

Pleepleus stuffed monkey bought at bbtoystore.com on June 14, 2008.

It’s nice to be able to go through all my old email to find these exact dates.

I’m using this challenge as an excuse to learn how to use my flash, which I’ve had for too long and don’t really know how to use. Hopefully, the quality of the pictures will get better over the course of the month.

I Saw Something Weird

I don’t know if I’m going to get creative with too many of the pictures, but this one seemed like a good fit. Unfortunately, it’s not really true. I still hear the voices. In the new year, though, I’m going to try to ignore them. 🙂

Jan 1st!

It’s 2009, and so my T-shirt a Day Challenge has started. Here’s the first:

Let's Go Mets!

I figured I’d start off the year with this one to give the Mets good luck in the new year.
Purchase place: NY Mets clubhouse store, Roosevelt Field Mall, Garden City, NY.
Purchase date: August 19, 2008.

I need to work on my photo setup and make it easier to take pictures of this every day. Hopefully, they’ll improve over the course of the month.

T-shirt a Day Challenge

A friend of mine has challenged me to wear a different t-shirt (that I already own – no buying new ones for it) every day for a month. I have way too many of them, so it’s really not going to be very difficult. I’ll be doing it in January. I’ll be documenting it by taking pictures, so I’ll have something to post about every day next month. I will also, if possible, list where the shirts were purchased, and when.

I buy t-shirts from a lot of places. Here’s an (incomplete) list:

That list is far from comprehensive. I’m sure I left out many places. I also subscribe to some t-shirt blogs in Google Reader. Yes, there are t-shirt blogs.

That’s also an incomplete list. I just might have a t-shirt problem.
