Happy Tuesday! As summer is winding to a close, I thought about how I used to spend summers as a child. Back then, the days were filled with swimming and the afternoons when it rained (as it often did in Southern Louisiana in the summer) involved reading. This week’s sartorial shout-out, Storytellers hearkens back to those days when sleeping late was the norm, PB&Jelly was a main component of my diet, and books were my own secret world. At least books are a constant as an adult. Take a look and see if you can name all the books referenced on this tee. Here’s a better view.
Storytellers is currently sold out on Threadless, but they often reprint tees and not surprisingly, this is a popular one so keep checking back if you want one for your very own. They do still have kids & infant sizes available and I think it would be awesome for any kid.
So sometimes when life as an adult gets a little overwhelming, pick up a book and escape. You’ll be glad you did. Until next time, have a lemonade, read a book & keep wearing tees!

Oh The Three Amigos, how I love thee and this week’s tee is a perfect nod to that film. I picked this one up in a trade at Teetrade.org, a wonderful site that makes it easy for you to trade a tee that was bought on a whim after a few too many (drinks or hours of gaming) for something you might actually wear.
Though this particular tee is no longer available on Shirt.Woot!, this one is currently available on Threadless! Although it doesn’t reference The Three Amigos, it sure made me laugh. I kind of think of it as 50 Shades of Pinata.
Speaking of NSFW pinatas, take a gander at the newest episode of De-Pixelated from Blue Goggles Films!
Wow! Who knew pinatas were such a thing? Maybe they’re the new mustache. Until next time – Viva le Tee!

Is it Tuesday again, already? Seriously, I feel like the weeks fly by. This week’s sartorial shout-out is one of my favorites – OK well they all are to some extent. So for lucky #13, I bring you from Threadless “We’ve Got Some Work to Do Now” by Travis Pitts.
Not only do I love the title, (although it reminds me that I have been quite remiss on giving folks my two cents about this summer’s movies) the art is so, so awesome!
I’ve been a fan of Scooby Doo, Where Are You? for as long as I remember. This was the original series that ran even before I was born, but was repeated often during the late seventies and very early eighties. I think this show for my early love of supernatural storytelling. In any case, being a nerdy child, I always liked Velma though I always wished she would dress a little better and do something with her hair. I mean she didn’t have to be prissy like Daphne, but surely she could do something a bit more than that helmet hairdo. Thus, when I saw this shirt it made me really happy. Not only was my girl Velma the brains of the operation, but she was also a zombie killing badass. One of my favorite touches is Daphne’s green scarf tied to Velma’s arm. That and the “R.I.P. S+F+D” on the side of the Misery Machine just take it to the next level.
Though it is currently out of stock at Threadless, they often do reprints, so if you want one of your own, keep checking back. It’s a totally badass shirt for Scooby Doo and zombie fans alike. Needless to say, I think this shirt will be the inspiration for my 2012 Halloween costume. Until next time, have some scooby snacks and keep wearing tees!

Star Power by Robbie Lee and Kasey Fleming
I have been terribly remiss at writing posts other than T-Shirt Tuesdays these last few weeks as I have had a number of house guests which has drawn my attention. Fear not, I will be back with reviews and/or discussions of Men in Black III (sigh) and Prometheus (double sigh). Today’s featured tee is one I picked up from Threadless and is somewhat still available.
Of course, the inclusion of a robot on a tee pretty much makes it an instabuy, but this one also has a kickass girl on it and a reference to lesser known DC characters, Star Spangled Kid and her sidekick S.T.R.I.P.E which makes it mighty. That’s it for this week’s sartorial shout-out. I promise this will be more than just a shirt a week blog, but until my next post, keep cool (it’s hot here in Austin) and keep wearing tees!
This Tuesday’s T-shirt brings together two of my favorite things – Doctor Who and owls! Artist Mallory Dyer really knocked it out of the park with her adorable owl versions of all eleven doctors. This closely edges out one of my other favorite anthropomorphic versions of Doctor Who, Doctor Mew. Though I don’t have a Doctor Mew T-shirt, I do have a print hanging in my office and it makes me chuckle daily.
I ordered this tee about a year ago from Threadless and it has remained one of my most beloved wardrobe items. My love for Doctor Hoo is so great that I actually have 3 versions of it – 2 sizes of the tee version and one zip-up hoodie! When I was in London last summer and visited the Doctor Who Experience, I got a couple of comments from people who worked there, asking where I got it. In fact, I often have people ask about this shirt in the strangest places like the doctor’s office. I guess Whovians are pretty widespread these days.
Threadless has a few sizes still available, but they often reprint if they get enough requests so if you like it, let them know! Until next Tuesday’s sartorial shout-out – Be comfy, wear a T-shirt!
