Did you know that Mark Twain (that witty old man!) once said “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.” Our current society has evolved into one that uses clothing and apparel, among other things, to convey a social status, so, even today Twain’s statement rings true.
But, for the moment . . . back to the classic, favorite band t-shirts . . . let’s turn to some of the bands of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Did any of these favorites sparked your desire to become a billboard for their artistic endeavors? Do you sport a tee from the Buddhist Paradise band? Maybe it was the band with the barrels and buds? Did you check into the Hotel California? Did you welcome the new Tee with Open Arms? Was it a Leviathan Heat Of the Moment thing when you bought the one with the serpent? Did you have a Free Bird on that most comfy t?
Were you instantly a 10 when you donned this band’s T? I guess the Colour and the Shape of your t-shirt was epic, right? Did you sit in the shade under The Joshua Tree during the worldwide tour wearing this shirt? Or . . . were you rockin’ with the Bad Boys from Boston?
We had one person answer the last blog Classic Rock T-Shirt question contest. THEY WON 50% off one t-shirt . . . See if you can answer which bands are noted in this blog and send us the answers . . . you just might be the next winner!
T-Shirts. Everyone has one, or 6, or 6 dozen. We all wear them at one time or another, right? Chances are you have many different styles and types. Almost all of us have that one special Tee that brings back epic memories. You know, the one that gives you a panic attack if it goes missing? The one that probably should have become a rag many moons ago . . . The one your significant other threatens to toss, and you’re never quite sure that it won’t happen one day.
Is it a classic rock Tee? Not only did we get to see the best bands – we bought their T-Shirts! And now “X”er’s, “Y”er’s and yes, even Millennials are snapping them up at record pace, to show how hip they are, I guess.
Did you have all three of these classics with the Wall, Flying Pigs, and a Prism, tees? How about the classic “Lips and Tongue”? Do you have one with the guys who wore makeup (lots of it!) before it was “in style”? How about the 4 boys from “Across the Pond” (who may or may not have come in a Yellow Submarine)? Do you have one from the boys who weren’t sure what current they were, or both? How about one of those simple black Tees with the iconic white lettered name thrashing across the front of your chest?? Did you and the Hermit show off the Stairway to Heaven? Is your closet full of Union Jack’s and Tommy’s? is your torso wrapped in Wings? Are you dancing the night away with Ziggy or Aladin Sane? Are you still stylin’ the Presidential Seal immortalizing the four founding members of the Punk Rock sound? Are you a repressed Rasta touting Peace, Love and a Spleef with Bob? We’d better not neglect to ask about the fiendish ghoul with the bloody hammer Killin’ it on your chest.
Whoever makes a list of the names of the bands that go along with the t-shirts above and sends it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) gets a 50% discount on one of our already very reasonable t-shirts. (It will be a t-shirt (not a tank or Hoodie) and one of our inventory of existing designs. We’ll send you a custom discount code. Whoever posts this “contest” on their FB page and alerts their friends (tag, share AND like) (and of course, us) will get something special, also!
So, there will be more to come about iconic, historic, sentimental and Expressive t-shirts, and maybe a funny little story about me, inquiring into the meaning of some of our designs. Stay tuned! . . .
Time to light the fires and journey over the river and through the woods, or down the freeway to Grandma’s house for some good grub!
Time to reflect on the fact that one of the secrets to a happy and content lifestyle is to practice being grateful and giving thanks for what you have.
Time to get out the longies and hoodies and warm clothes and maybe to donate some warm clothes to those without this season.
It’s the season of giving to show your gratitude, appreciation and love to those who make your life, easier, happier, more fulfilling and all around better!
