Two New Awesome Shirts To Up The Nerdness In Your Life
This may not be the homage to the subway systems that Take The A Train by Billy Strayhorn was but it's still pretty fucking cool. Basically some very forward thinking dork created a total replica of the London Tube map and applied it to Middle Earth. I must truthful, I was never a Lord Of The Rings guy. I thought the books were okay but dragged (I know, nerd sin, I've heard it before) and I hated the movies. Ten hours plus of people walking up hill and complaining, are you fucking serious? Anyhoo that aside I would still buy this shirt save for one thing, super nipples.
The best things I inherited from my father is my writing ability, my sense of humor, my critical mind, my ability to tell a story and roguish good looks. The worst thing I inherited from him were nipples that could cut through steel. When I was incredibly fat I thought that was the reason but then I lost tons of weight and they were still there. It's like it's forever freezing right around them and it makes white, grey, red, pretty much any light color t-shirt a real impossibility for me. I can't even wear this next shirt which kills me because it's soooo rich. Dig it:
A creepy E.T./Shining shirt? Man I would love to wear this. E.T. was one of the first things that proved just how jaded I had become getting older. When that movie hit the theaters I was 9 or 10 and I loved it. I cried when E.T. died, I bought the toys and t-shirts, shit I even munched down on the cereal. Then I didn't see it again for about seven years and when I did I thought it was the stupidest movie I had ever seen. A dirty old man alien whose "neck" gets longer when little kids touch him? Fucking grim. I still love the Shining though and if not cursed with super nipples I'd already own both of these.
