Everyone Has a Plan

It’s Cool Shirt Friday, and it’s always the plan to have a Cool Shirt Friday every Friday; but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.

Virtue Recording Studios

Today’s Cool Shirt Friday comes with a Philly history lesson. Virtue Recording Studios was one of Philadelphia’s most renowned studios (located at Broad St & Cecil B.

Shirts of Rage

This Cool Shirt Friday is a bit of a nostalgic one for me. My first childhood video game system was the Sega Genesis.

Great Scott! It’s Cool Shirt Friday

And Now… Cartoons!

This Cool Shirt Friday shirt is an homage to 2 of my favorite cartoons to watch from my teenage years. Spider-Man, which aired on Fox and Batman the Animated Series which aired on the now defunct WB Television Network. Batman was unique because it was one of the first cartoon series that took on a…

It’s a Stunning Cool Shirt Day

It’s cool Shirt Friday. While it may be because we’re about a month away from Wrestlemania, and I am a WWE fan, though not as much as I was in teenage years. During those times, one of my favorite wrestlers to keep up with had to be the incomparable Stone Cold Steve Austin. Cue the…

It’s Reverse Day

It’s Cool Shirt Friday and today’s shirt is one with  comic book villain Reverse Flash’s logo on it. I’ve become a fan of both The Flash and Reverse Flash after watching  The Flash’s TV Series on the CW Network. I’m far from a comic book expert, so I’m going to turn the blog over to…
