Had my birthday recently – my daughter’s present for me arrived today. It is, of course, ice hockey related. A Devils jersey with Tyson Strachan’s number – he’s our unflappable, assured defender.
New t shirt, it’s a Henry Rollins quote about living in the time of Trump: this is what Joe Strummer trained you for
Do professors wear this kind of thing?
Off to Chicago tomorrow where it is about -10, so packing lots of layers
I bought this t-shirt from [url=https://verybritishproblems.teemill.co.uk/]Very British Problems[/url] – it might help overseas visitors appreciate the annoying British habit of not saying what we mean, and speaking in polite phrases (something I am guilty of)
Because I bought a Clash poster a while back, Ebay, via facebook recommended this purchase: London Calling cufflinks. I found this hilariously ironic, the icon of punk rebellion being used for that most middle-class accessory, the cufflink. Joe Strummer would spin in his grave. But in a post-ironic way, I bought them anyway. Alanis Morissette probably wouldn’t understand why it was ironic.
Here I am sporting my Billy Bragg t-shirt, featuring his lyric from [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4b7cbI_MVI]Waiting for The Great Leap Forward[/url]
My daughter got a t-shirt with this failed Olympic sign from the Sochi opening ceremony. I like that it has become an international symbol of Epic Fail
It’s long been a cliche that teachers and lecturers have elbow patches on their jackets. A sort of boring man’s badge of honour. I’ve not had elbow patches before, but they’ve kind of become retro-chic now, so I bought this John Rocha jacket yesterday in the sales complete with elbow patch. I feel it will convey me with superpowers: The Elbow Patch of Awesome Sagacity!
PS – it is retro-chic isn’t it?
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are all the rage now. By chance I found this old t-shirt from about 5 years ago. I had forgotten it bore this legend. I’m not sure what MOOKs were in this context, but I like the idea of being agrophobic – by which I guess they mean against aggression. Or maybe not. Anyway, this t-shirt proves that I invented MOOCs.
