Shirt: Alkaline Trio - Girl & Goat
Source: since the 1K day is coming down the pipeline i find it increasingly hard to put on a shirt in the morning. a relatively easy task for most people i know. its just that now i feel this immense pressure to blow your mind or something. then i stop to think to myself, who gives a shit. yes i know some of you do but my point being is that this site has never been for anyone but myself, and really i am the only one here i need to impress or please. I mean i want to get as diverse as possible, expose people to new things, designs, art and bands but I’m the dude wearing this shirt and writing this post, so i guess i need to be #1 in this scenario. which brings me to this shirt by Alkaline Trio.
I tried to explain to a friend the either day about Alkaline trio and I just don’t think they got it. To me its a band that i find i equate with certain feelings so i get when people don’t get it. you either lived through this era of music and appreciated it or you completely missed it and it will never fall into place for you.
I Listened to this band a lot as they were making music, for every new record there was anticipation and excitement. then they signed to Vagrant and that was even more exciting, then to a Major, then back to an indie (Epitaph). through all that i have always appreciated their songs and their influence and contribution to punk music. Matt through his ups and his downs has always been punk as fuck and i respect that about him and its one of the things i look forward to in his songwriting is his honesty in that life. so yeah today i went with Trio. why because its just something I’m thankful for today.
