My First “Cool Shirt Guy” WordPress Blog Post (Jawn)

If you’re reading this, you probably know me or at least the t-shirts I wear often, and you may be thinking, “Wow, it took you long enough.” I’d have to agree with you. But there’s no time better than the present to get a blog going about some of the cool t-shirts I find myself wearing from time to time.

The ground rules for the uninitiated:
1) All shirts are free of profanity.
2) All shirts generally refrain from overly politicized and/or divisive issues. (There are enough blogs that deal with that subject matter already).
3) These are all shirts I presently own, and are part of my personal collection, although this may change later.

And that’s about it. As I become more acclimated with this medium, I’m hoping to provide you all with some fun, cool, and entertaining content.

That’s all for now. Let’s enjoy the ride.

Yeah Science!

This Cool Shirt Friday I was going to try and take a shot at being the Cool Science Guy, but apparently, that position was already filled. But regardless, today’s post is a nod to Science. It’s happening all around us, and it’s happening within us too. I certainly don’t know all there is to know…

This One’s For the Doc

This Cool Shirt Friday falls 1 day after the official start of the 2018 Major League Baseball season. With what’s more commonly referred to as Opening Day upon us, my mind went towards the only team I follow closely throughout the season, the Philadelphia Phillies. This past November, Roy “Doc” Halladay, one of the most…

One Small Step for Women Too!

This Cool Shirt post is coming a day early as we celebrate International Women’s Day. You may be wondering what a t-shirt with an astronaut on it (pictured in this post) has to do with International Women’s Day, but I assure you there’s a very strong connection. This Cool Shirt is a creation from the…

There Are Lots of Questions, but Only 1 Answer

It’s another Cool Shirt Friday and the question this week is, who is the subject matter of this week’s post? The answer is… The Answer also known as Allen Iverson (formerly featured in a previous blog post). 4 years ago from the date of this post, Iverson former Philadelphia 76er and NBA Hall of Famer…

Black Panther: The Film (No Spoilers Please)

It’s triple excitement at the Cool Shirt Guy blog today. It’s Cool Shirt Friday, it’s Black History Month, and today marks the official cinematic release of Black Panther in theaters. I already alluded to the cinematic release of Black Panther in last week’s post. But now, I’m hoping to add a little more context to…

Wakandans Unite!

It’s Black History Month post number two this Cool Shirt Friday. This post is taking us all the way to Wakanda. For the uninitiated, Wakanda is the name of a fictitious African nation made popular by the Marvel Comics character Black Panther (pictured in the image attached to this post). So, who is Black Panther,…

Melanin History Month

Melanin. I’ve got some, you’ve got some, everyone has some. But February is a month dedicated to celebrating the achievements of those who have more melanin, more commonly known as Black History Month. While many readers of this blog may incorporate Black History Month as a regular part of their lives, it wasn’t officially recognized…

Tower Records

This Cool Shirt Friday, I was feeling a little nostalgic. In my travels, I came across a shirt from Tower Records. For the unfamiliar, Tower Records was a national chain of record stores that closed down some time around 2006. Before the proliferation of streaming services, and the ability to have access to endless amounts…

The Power of “No”

Today’s Cool Shirt Friday post is devoted to the power of the word no. A Psychology TodayArticle reads: “Wielded wisely, No is an instrument of integrity and a shield against exploitation. It often takes courage to say. It is hard to receive. But setting limits sets us free.” With that being said, don’t be afraid…

The National Museum of African American History & Culture

Finally, after trying to get there since it opened in September of 2016, I  made it to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington DC. The museum has thousands of historical artifacts, videos, and pieces of information spread across several floors of a beautifully constructed building. Two notable portions of…

I <3 Hip-Hop & I <3 B-Girls, Like Krazy K

This post starts on a somber note. Last week, the Philly Hip-Hop Community and the Community at large lost someone very special, Leah Nicole Caesar affectionately known as Keturah. If you met Keturah through the Hip-Hop scene, you may have also known her as “Krazy K”. An article from Philadelphia Print Works described her as…
