Nerdy T-shirts on SnorgTees

19 07 2015

I used to wear all kinds of “message” T-shirts when I was a student (pre-gut).

SnorgTees have upped the game considerably over the last generation by including catch-phrases and quotes from popular culture and media (some of which didn’t even exist when I used to wear T-shirts: like video games!) Others though – they’re just plain nerdy. Like this one:

SnorgTees: I ate some pie

For the less nerdy reader in need of some help, this mathematical sequence reads: i 8 sum pi.

But it’s not just maths, they also do chemistry nerdiness:

SnorgTees: Chemistry nerdiness

SnorgTees: Chemistry nerdiness

Or this one which is a little more nerdy for the hard-core chemists:

SnorgTees: More chemistry nerdiness

SnorgTees: More chemistry nerdiness

They even cater to the Eddie Izzard fan:

SnorgTees: Izzardmania

SnorgTees: Izzardmania

And even truisms:

SnorgTees: Truism

SnorgTees: Truism

At $12 or so a pop, you could do well to nerdify your student wardrobe. They even acknowledge the student is a likely customer:

SnorgTees: Know your market

SnorgTees: Know your market





Nothing to add, really…

A pair of socks as a present from Nordstrom Rack in Seattle. I’d like to think it was the non-conformist pattern that brought me to mind, but perhaps it was the label after all…

Funny Clothing Tags

These web pages promising x of the funniest y you’ve ever seen are often disappointing, but I had to admit to sniggering at one or two of these supposedly genuine wash care labels from Bored Panda.

Go girl

5 06 2015

As a proud parent of 2 girls, I’m keenly aware of issues around education and sexual discrimination. Seems a young lady from here in BC has the same concerns and used her high school graduation dress as a cool piece of marketing to draw attention to the fact that not every girl in the world has ready access to education. For once, I am fully on board with a woman wearing clothes that scream “look at me”! The dress was made from old maths homework and the message on her dress reads: “I’ve received my education. Not every woman has that right.” Read more at DesignTaxi: Girl Uses Math Homework To Make Grad Dress, Helps Other Girls Go To School – DesignTAXI.com.

Movember meets Lululemon

OK, so this advert works for its intended audience… but only because men are inherently sexist and almost casually objectivise women.





Very “intense” at FieldCandy

10 06 2013

First born, you may recall is “out East” at Waterloo. She’s a keen Rover Scout and always has half an eye open for interesting outdoor gear, sales and the like.

Today she told me about a UK company called “Field Candy“. They offer a range of tents very (and I mean VERY) similar to the Vango Force 10. Regulars may recall that I possess such a beast, and  very good it is too. Heavy to haul around, but that’s why you have Sherpas I suppose!

FieldCandy hit upon the idea of spicing up the old workhorse (sorry – I mean their tent that just happens to look a LOT like the old workhorse) by offering a bewildering array of cool fly sheets. Limited editions too, to ensure that yours is always very special.

Perhaps you’d like the bubble-wrap look:

All wrapped up | FieldCandy.

Or perhaps you like to fall asleep between the pages of a good book…

Fully booked | FieldCandy.

The old UJ is certainly tempting:

Rule Britannia | FieldCandy. But at £395, I think I’ll just stick with ol’ faithful. We’ve shared more than a few adventures together over the almost 30 years we’ve been together. (Though she did get a new fly-sheet a couple of years ago when the zip finally gave way).

Battersea: Power of London Launch

3 04 2013

Eliza Doolittle at Battersea Power Station showing off her Palladium boots with co-host Remi Kabaka from the Gorillaz. I was actually reminded of wandering through Fountains Abbey, in Yorkshire. Obviously it’s nowhere near as old, but it has its own elegance despite its raw utility.
