Your latest t-shirt

White Tshirt

Do you buy t-shirts on internet?. I do. Essentially geeky and crypted branded one (gibberish for some). My latest acquisitions are from A List Apart and Insanely Great Tees. Good quality cotton, nice colours and nice prints.

As a result of fashion, t-shirts have changed these last years. They seem to be weaved in lighter cotton, and offer a tighter fit. The side effect is that I've switched from an L (XL sometimes) to M size. Ls are just too large. I use to favour the thick loose fit surfer style t-shirts for a long time, but I must admit the tighter fit feels good too - to F's pleasure who's been trying to make me wear them for years.

I think I've worn t-shirts ever since I could get dressed alone. The colours, brand and message have evolved through the years, but the t-shirt has always been at the heart of my dressing code - to the great despair of my mum. When I think of it, I'm basically dressed the same way now as I was 20 years ago. Scary. The brands and messages have changed, but the basic look has survived. Seems I'll never grow up.

A quick Spotlight search for 't-shirt' in my e-mail revealed an interesting (and scary) thread of geeky t-shirts I acquired on the net over the years.

What t-shirts do you buy?

I had to buy an ash gray t-shirt of my tribal Spirit design. I remember finishing it and thinking, "Wow. *I* did this?"

This weblog is an nth attempt to solve my multiple online personalities and weblog/rss feeds burnout issues. (more)


I have been contemplating the idea of upgrading my desktop Mac since this spring. The latest 27" iMac (Quad-Core) seemed the perfect candidate, but the release of Apple's 27" Monitor last September made me stick with the Mac Pro...


The autopsy of an iconic album cover picked up on Kottke.org. A stacked graph of successive radio signals from pulsar CP 1919, in a 1977 astronomy encyclopedia that originated in a 1970 Ph.D. thesis. Fascinating <3...
