Set your DVR: 5 Must See Spring Television Premieres
Posted by TShirt Laundry on 3/28/2013
weather is never warm enough, never arrives on time and is littered with mud
and rainy skies. Talk about the red-headed stepchild of seasons. Oddly enough,
TV shows go through similar phases.
Sometimes Love Just Stinks.
Let’s face it. Sometimes love just stinks.

Poets have long-scorned past lovers and musicians have milked millions out of a bad breakup. It seems like everyone’s had their fair share of heartache. So what gives with all the red and pink sparkly hearts being shoved in your face since mid-January?
How to Sneak into an Award Show Like a Pro
Every month has its thing. October has Halloween, August has unbearable heat, but January and February, what do they have? I know, February has Valentine's Day, but do you actually know anyone who likes Valentine's Day?

What to Wear While Watching Your Favorite Non-Christmas Christmas Movies
I have a friend who can rattle off classic Christmas movies like she’s reading the TV Guide listings for any given day in December on ABC Family. Okay, fine. It’s me. You got Rudolph, you got Frosty, even Buddy the Elf. And now, thanks to the brilliant minds at TShirt Laundry, that list includes Bruce Willis.

If We Planned Thanksgiving Dinner…
There’s an old saying that goes something like this: “You can’t choose your family. You take what fate hands you.” We can’t argue that this isn’t true, but this Thanksgiving we wondered what a holiday dinner would be like if we chose the guests. Check out our picks:

Halloween: A Terrifyingly Mundane Day for Adults
Halloween howls in with the harsh fall wind every year, and every year I get older, I realize how much more fun the holiday was as a kid. Sure there are benefits to being an adult on Halloween – no curfew, easy admission to ‘R’ rated horror films and the ability to buy your own candy – but there are some serious setbacks too.

Confessions of a Born Again Nerd
My journey into Geekdom is one I never thought I would take. I have a two-year-old son, and I could write pages telling you about my journey into motherhood. But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about going geek.

My Disdain for Jim Halpert
When you hear the name Jim Halpert, you probably think of the long-haired, lanky, main character from the popular long-running sitcom “The Office.” A prankster he is, constantly making a fool of Dwight Schrute through various gags, some of which often take days or even weeks of meticulous set-up in order to reach the point of their reveal (i.e. the coins in the phone prank). All these pranks do is make you think he’s a cool guy that you’d want to hang out with. However, I figured out seasons ago that he’d probably be the most boring person in the world, eventually driving all of his friends away, to live a life of lonely isolation.

Beard Growing in Progress
Posted by Tshirt Laundry on 12/23/2010
So far NBM has been going great.
Although my beard partner needed to back out due to unforeseen circumstances,
I’m still marching onward in the name of beards everywhere. It’s surprisingly
non-itchy, especially after the first week or two, and has been extremely
useful in the past few weeks due to the temperature drop. I’m proud to report
that I haven’t needed a scarf yet (and we’ve been in the teens here in the Windy City).
I discovered the oddest thing
though. Upon further research into National Beard Month, I’ve discovered that
perhaps there is no National Beard Month…. Strange.
National Beard Month
Posted by Tshirt Laundry on 12/8/2010
I can barely contain my excitement knowing that December is finally here! While
there’s an assortment of fantastic holidays this time of year, the best part is
that it’s actually National Beard Month! And to commemorate this joyous season
it’s now (somewhat) socially acceptable to quit shaving, which is great for me
because I’ll be better defended against the freezing Chicago winter winds. For
the next 31 days I will not shave my
beard in order to better understand the meaning of National Beard Month (which
will now on be referred to as NBM).
This Tshirt Is Too Damn Awesome
Halloween is right around the corner so we’re going to help you with any last minute costume ideas. You can go as a representative of the The Rent Is Too Damn High
Party like New York Gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan. Go as a member of the Flying Hellfish
like Grandpa Simpson or as a zombie groundhog from Groundhog Day of the Dead
. Fans of the band Weezer can dress like Animal from the Muppets like in their video for Keep Fishin'
. But whatever your costume is, we can all agree that the rent is still too damn high.
