A beautiful album filled with melancholy and nostalgia. Best enjoyed on a rainy (or snowy) day.
What kind of nerd are you? According to this new Threadless tee by Riccardo Bucchioni, there are 9 major nerd types:
- Computer Nerd
- Sci-fi Nerd
- Rpg Nerd
- Comic Book Nerd
- Otaku Nerd
- Gaming Nerd
- Science Nerd
- Movies Nerd
- Music Nerd
Let’s see, if I had to classify myself into a specific class of nerd then I would have to say that I am most likely a Science Nerd. Though, I am pretty sure that I could hold my own against Movie Nerds and Computer Nerds (especially those that subclassify themselves as Apple Nerds). What kind of nerd are you?
By the way, this T-Shirt reminds me a bit of this little infographic that I posted more than 2 years ago. Geeks rule the world!
Know Your Nerds by Riccardo Bucchioni is available now at Threadless for $18.
Before there was How I Met Your Mother, there was Friends. Thing is, I never watched Friends as a teen growing up in the 90’s. I know, I missed out. After falling in love with How I Met Your Mother and because everyone compared it to Friends (even the producers of HIMYM admit that it pays homage to Friends) I decided to give it a go.
It helped that my roommate owns the complete Friends series on DVD. So, about 2 years back I began my Friends education, starting with Season one. I’m currently on Season 5, and I admit, Friends is awesome stuff and I’m a bit ashamed that I missed out on this piece of pop culture growing up.
So what’s the point, you wonder? Well, I found out that there’s a Friends fanatic in the lab that I work at. He claims to have seen every episode from season 4 on at least three times. He likes to ask people random Friends Trivia. He has all of season 5 on his iPhone. Anyway, I overheard him asking some Friends trivia the other day, and surprisingly, I knew the answers (at least up to Season 5). I was stoked, and that actually made me want to watch even more episodes of Friends just so that I could come up with a good trivia question for our Friends fanatic.
The one With All The Thanksgivings was a great episode. Incidentally, that’s where I’m at now and what’s even better is that that episode is breading ground for good Friends trivia. So I came up with a question from that episode that actually stumped him. The question?
What was the name of Chandler’s band in college?
He didn’t get it! And I was so happy.

This whole NBC vs. Conan O’brien vs. Jay Leno debacle has got me enthralled with network television for the first time in, well, quite a while. I’ve been watching the late night shows just to listen to the quicks jabs that they’ve been taking at each other. I admit that I’m a bit sad to see Conan O’brien leave the peacock station. NBC, 7 months really wasn’t enough time for him to find his audience. In any case, all of this late night drama has led to an amazing I’m With CoCo campaign. Here are 6 T-Shirts that you can choose from to show your support for the Conan O’brien / Team Coco / I’m With Coco cause.
And here’s something extra, someone made a song in support of Team Coco. Check out I’m With Coco by Dustin Krein:
I’m With Coco by Busted Tees, $15.
I’m With CoCo by Mike Mitchell, $18.
No. by ATShirtBlog, $24.99.

Team Conan by Alex Pardee, $24.
Team Conan by My Associate Cornelius, $15.
The designer of this T-Shirt, Jayarr Steiner, runs a local screen printing service in Rochester, New York. He sent me a link to a video of this tee that he designed using thermochromatic ink.
“So basically the way this shirt design work is like this: When the wearerâ€™s body is below 90 degrees the design on the left is how it will look. When its above 90 degrees the image of Sinatra will disappear and his tie will turn red. I want you all to know this isnt a concept shirt , i will have a fully functional sample printed by this weekend so if you have any interest in seeing it in action come by the shop!”
But of course, seeing is believing. Check out the video below to see the Sinatra tee appear in full glory.
This post has absolutely nothing to with T-Shirts. So, after lunch today me and a colleague, Mr. Andy Dewald, discovered a wonderful site, SketchySantas.com. Inspired by the awesomeness of SketchySantas.com we decided to do a tribute video. The background music is sung by an unknown singer and was given to us by our former (bless his heart) advisor, Dr. Ed Chronicle.
So if you’re not familiar with Deadmau5, he is a Toronto based based music producer (progressive/electric house) whose real name is Joel Zimmerman. That mouse head on the shirt below is his signature character. The shirt is titled Deadmau5 and features the Deadmau5 character but is not a Deadmau5 authorized tee. It’s actually a tee from NYC based tee contest site, Finroo.
I have to add that the colors on this shirt and the overall vibe is pretty wild. Deadmau5 fans will probably dig it. It is available now from Finroo for $34.99. I know it’s a steep price but rest assured, you are getting a quality product and probably the softest shirt you’ll ever own. Trust me on that, I’ve tried these tees from Finroo and they are ace.
Just in time for Halloween, check out this just released tee from Elektrek Clothing. It’s their tribute tee for the late King of Pop. Elektrek Thriller features vintage Michael Jackson, circa 1984. The shirt is available for sale now for $25 but Â you can score 15% off today only for the net two weeks with the coupon code “THRILLER” at checkout.
By the way, how many of you are looking forward to This Is It, the upcoming Michael Jackson documentary? I’ll definitely be watching this it in the theaters.
In the age of digital everything – I’m actually looking around for a decent record player. Yep, you know, that thing that plays vinyl. Those huge circular things that spin and play music. Yeah, I want one. You know why? Because I grew up listening to records. My mom was (and still is) a huge music freak and she is the reason why I can appreciate good music, both old stuff and new stuff. Plus, she has a huge record collection that I’d love to get my hands on, dust off, and have a listen too.
Speaking of vinyl, this is the shirt that I should be wearing the day that I get my own record player. It’s called Vinyl and Crossbones and it is from brand new indie clothing brand, Aeres Clothing Co., who coincidently have a grand opening sale going on right now. All American Apparel shirts are priced at $22 and all Alstyle and Bella tees are priced at $18. How many of you still listen to vinyl?
