Shirt: Alkaline Trio - Girl & Goat
Source: since the 1K day is coming down the pipeline i find it increasingly hard to put on a shirt in the morning. a relatively easy task for most people i know. its just that now i feel this immense pressure to blow your mind or something. then i stop to think to myself, who gives a shit. yes i know some of you do but my point being is that this site has never been for anyone but myself, and really i am the only one here i need to impress or please. I mean i want to get as diverse as possible, expose people to new things, designs, art and bands but I’m the dude wearing this shirt and writing this post, so i guess i need to be #1 in this scenario. which brings me to this shirt by Alkaline Trio.
I tried to explain to a friend the either day about Alkaline trio and I just don’t think they got it. To me its a band that i find i equate with certain feelings so i get when people don’t get it. you either lived through this era of music and appreciated it or you completely missed it and it will never fall into place for you.
I Listened to this band a lot as they were making music, for every new record there was anticipation and excitement. then they signed to Vagrant and that was even more exciting, then to a Major, then back to an indie (Epitaph). through all that i have always appreciated their songs and their influence and contribution to punk music. Matt through his ups and his downs has always been punk as fuck and i respect that about him and its one of the things i look forward to in his songwriting is his honesty in that life. so yeah today i went with Trio. why because its just something I’m thankful for today.
so this is what 1000 days of band shirts looks like. with the exception of a few non band shirts but art related ones in the begining + a bunch of bonus shirts when i changed or wore a long sleeve they are here. it has been fun doing it.
i wanted to show in perspective what a 1000 blog posts look like in reality. so i imagined up this idea to fill a photo studio wall and this is what it looks like. took me 4 days and with the gracious help of day19 and his studio XIX Studios in Eagle Rock, CA a lot of help from my wife the photographer here emilyshur a few really great friends Victor, Lacey, and Matt i managed to erect this thing in a few days. People kept asking me what are you doing, and why? my answer was always the same. i dunno, and because i can. its the only real reason to do something i guess. i just wanted to see this picture in my mind come to reality. so i did. that it. if you click on the picture it should take you to a full size version you can nerd around on and look in more detail. have fun with it, spend some time kooking out. share it with your friends. then go make something like this yourself.
oh yeah below is a picture of the 1000 shirt which is technically not included cause i was wearing it. and if you were ever curious as to what i looked like after all this time, here you go.
thats me above doing my part to make the internet a better place.
Now you can have that crazy old man from pokemon leaf green/fire red laying on your blog because he hasn’t had his coffee
