Day: 985
Shirt: Morrissey - Moz Angeles
Color:  White
Brand: Fruit Of the Loom Heavy

Source:  So today according to one Wiki Entry is the 20th anniversary of Vauxhall & I but according to another it was last week.  i can only chalk this up to release dates staggered in different countries.  so i will just assume it is today and leave it at that.   Either Way it was this week so praise the almighty Moz, unite and move on. 

Vauxhaull is this great album for people but ill be honest, it is on the bottom of the list for Moz albums for me.  that sounds like it is a bad album in my opinion but no, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. tis just that i like other albums way more.  like if i was stranded on a desert island it wouldn’t be the first Moz album id reach for.  crazily enough my fav album is one that i think people like least which is Southpaw Grammar.  i love how dark that record gets, i love the production and the sounds on it.  but thats me.  I’m sure many people disagree and i’m also sure depending on what Morriseey album you picked up first your opinion will be different.  we can all agree that all his albums are good tho I’m sure.  just different rankings of good.  

I also need to iron my shirts or let them sit so they are obviously not pulled right off the shelve with fold marks on them too.  dang I’m a slog.  Morrissey would not be proud.

Day: 889Shirt: the Smiths - Sheila take A Bow (Reproduction)Color:  RedBrand: TultexSource: fun fact.  Sheila was the first Smiths song i ever heard.  see when buying tapes as a kid i went for my moneys worth.  Louder Than Bombs  really gave you more bang for your buck, there must have been way over 20 songs on that thing and i was no rich mofo.  Meat Is Murder only had like 9, the choice was simple.  i bought in bulk.  

I don’t think it was until 10-15 years later that i learned that this record was all b-sides and singles.  that is when i realized how good this band was.  every their throwaway tracks killed it.  there was no garbage.  only songs that were slightly less amazing.  
that is part of why this shirt made it into the batch i made cause this design was important to me, and i wanted to have one to wear for the remainder of my simple life.  a reminder to me of when i discovered on of my favorite bands of my life.  

Oh yes if you wanna buy one of these why they exist there are for sale here at www.Vltded.bigcartel.com

Shirt: the Smiths - Queen 
Color:  white
Brand: [blank washed out]
Source: So part of what i love about doing this blog is Archiving.  there is that stupid nerd in me that wants to find out everything he can about a subject i love.  there is that small part of me that knows someone will come to my site and be able to discover something interesting about a shirt they love and then share it with the rest of the world.  

I met this wonderful lady yesterday who was the previous owner of this shirt. she was not only able to tell me what city she saw this show at but what venue and the fact that she slept over night to get in cause ti was general admission.  On Top of that she was also able to tell me she only washed all her shirts and hung dried them so they are in immaculate shape.  she had kept them stored in tubs in her garage for decades.  it really was the kind of find that most people who are hunters/ hoarders would consider a goldmine.  the kind where you have to contain your excitement so you don’t give away your hand and get fleeced by a greedy seller.  

Fortunately for me this was not the case. this woman had so many memories attached to everyone of these shirts i almost felt bad relieving her of them, don’t get me wrong i did, but i felt bad.  But i did feel better knowing that if i was selling off my collection of something i loved and someone came over who appreciated them more than me and respected their existence in this world i would feel a whole hell of a lot better.  

That part of me surfaces a lot.  anyone of my friends who know me, know it sometimes is hard to walk away form my house with out some gifts in your hand.  I am a hoarder kind of, but when i see someone with far more passion and appreciation for something that i own i figure it needs to be theirs.  it wasn’t meant to be with me.  I am a firm believer in that.  

This woman loved this Smiths shirt, as she should its magical.  She did not know what the Smiths mean to me, but part of her could tell.  She knew that if she was going to let this shirt get away form her it was going to be in a better place.  

With that said i am thankful, appreciative and stoked to meet fellow nerds and talk about or times.  there really is no replacement for the one on one haggle battle that ends in you went to this show? and then talking for 30 mins about it.  

Last point.  what is Smithdom I’ve never seen it before?

Day: 681
Shirt: Morrissey - Tour Of Refusal 2009
Color: Black
Brand: Anvil
Source: I got this shirt in Albuquerque, NM in 2009.  i was putting on a Mastodon show down the street literally two block s away when i got wind that Morrissey was playing down the street.  i put my #2 in charge and told him id be back in a lil while.  

I Missed the opener the Courteeners which i was really bummed about but i did manage to catch Morrissey.  In NM, in a very tiny club which i was really excited about.  i think i saw half the set, at least 3 shirt changes.  but it was worth every minute.  

Today is the big guys birthday.  so this one is for him.  Happy Birthday buddy.  stay well don’t die, come to america again and play one more time.

Source: yeah i went to the Morrissey show last night at Hollywood High.  yeah it was pretty fucking good.  solid set list, good energy, great crowd and awesome venue.  pretty much all you could ask for.  no complaints here.  I’m just glad it wasn’t a let down show.  it really delivered and i was really happy for that.  if that was the last Morrissey show i ever went to i would be ok with it.
