T-SHIRT TUESDAY - GARTH ALGAR APPROVED

Today for T-Shirt Tuesday we present this Garth Algar approved Aerosmith t-shirt from their 1988 Aero Force One Tour! The shirt's become a kind of cult classic, just like the 1992 film in which it appears. It's the foundation of Garth's signature look: Converse, ripped jeans, rock t-shirt, plaid flannel (optional), black horn-rimmed glasses, messy blond mop. Observe:

T-SHIRT TUESDAY - King Bacchus

'Tis Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, and there's still a few hours left (on the East Coast, at least) to get your vices on before the ritual fasting begins tomorrow! I've dug up this purple number from the Captain's vault that commemorates the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Krewe of Bacchus. On that fateful Sunday early in 1968, the Krewe of Bacchus broke with Carnival tradition and staged a night parade with bigger animated super-floats than anything previously seen in Carnival history. Now that's a celebration worth celebrating!

T-SHIRT TUESDAY - The Great American Choral Festival

Well folks, you asked for it and we answered. A compilation of the best/worst school choir performances from the 1980s, inspired by this swell new arrival

Before we begin, I'll just set the mood with this great shot from the spring of '82 of Fest competitors from the St. Louis Children's Choir. It seems the Great American Choral Festival is no longer in action - but, don't sweat vocally gifted teens and tweens - I'm sure in the age of Glee there's plenty of other events in which to compete! However, they will likely have none of the pizazz of these matching outfits or original Fest logo...

T-SHIRT TUESDAY - I Survived Hurricane Iwa

Welp, we're finally experiencing some winter weather here in the Northeast, and I can't say I love it. It's the time of year for fantasizing about tropical climates, like those fair Hawaiian Islands I've never been to. The truth is, I hate to sweat and I'm scared to death of natural disasters. And, Hawaii's paradise comes with a whole heck of a lot of devastation, historically speaking.

T-SHIRT TUESDAY - Bowie on T-shirts, T-Shirts on Bowie

Just like the rest of the world, we're mourning the loss and celebrating the life and work of David Bowie this week. Last night I listened to a rebroadcast of an interview with Fresh Air's Terry Gross from 2002, in which Bowie spoke candidly about leaving characters in his songs, his love of Tibetan horns, and his childhood desire to write musicals and play saxophone in Little Richard's band. He also touched on why he never wore t-shirts and jeans onstage...
