It’s just a shirt

Posted by Mick on April 12, 2010 – 10:00 pm

Yesterday, as I was getting dressed, I grabbed one of my Bass Ass Cinema shirts.  As I was putting it on, I hesitated.  We were getting ready to go to the Indiana Jones Trilogy feast at the Ritz.

Did I want to be that guy?  The guy who wears the shirt of the place he’s going?  I’m never that guy.

As I was wondering if I should wear it, I realized that I was actually considering changing my clothes because of what someone might think.

I’m definitely not that guy.

I love my my shirts from MondoTees, including my BadAss Cinema shirts.  Some of the best movie geek shirts you will find anywhere.  I didn’t pull the shirt out because I was going to the Drafthouse, I pulled it out because I wanted to wear it.

There’s a sad truth here.  I often pick out my clothes with only a minor consideration for where I’m going.  If you ever see me out in public and I appear to be dressed appropriately, all the credit for that goes to Tara.  Or it’s pure coincidence.  Sometimes I get lucky.  But I digress.

I pulled out the shirt because I wanted to wear it.

I’ll admit this.  I wore a Kiss shirt the last time I went and saw Kiss.  But it was a vintage shirt.  And it’s Kiss, different rules apply to Kiss.  And I’m a huge geek.  It’s Kiss, I’m allowed.

While we’re on that subject, I would not go see Kiss again, at least not now.  Gene and Paul with two other musicians?  Fine, I’m ok with that, I might go.  Gene and Paul in costume with two guys dressed up as Ace and Peter?  I’m not down with that.

I also liked Kiss much more when I didn’t know what a creeper Gene was.  If I was alone in a room with him, I’d want a bottle of that anti-bacterial hand sanitizer stuff.  And a tyvek suit.

That’s all of me you can have today.

Be good to each other.
