I have a lot of t-shirts. I mean A LOT. And I usually wear a t-shirt every day.

At the end of 2005 I had the idea for this blog - starting January 1st, 2006 I would wear a different t-shirt from my collection every day until I ran out of shirts. Shirts could not be repeated. Each day I was to take a photo of that particular day's shirt, tell everyone a little bit about it, and then post it all on this blog. I also encouraged my readers to send me shirts to keep my streak going, but that didn't work out so well. I think I got two or three in the mail. The rest of the shirts were mine.

The SASHDISH experiment lasted from January 1st, 2006 to June 5th, 2006, or something like 152 shirts! Was this pointless? Probably. But so is most of the stuff on the internet.

After SASHDISH ended, I got lazy and stopped checking in on it. Then the company that owned the server that stored all of my images went out of business, and all of the photos were lost. Someday, when I'm bored, I'll go back and repost the images. Until then, I still have all of the individual shirt descriptions up, so you can read about each one. And here's a photo of the first 100 shirts: SASHDISH 100.

In case you're wondering, I got rid of most of these shirts. However, I'm still a t-shirt-a-holic and now own just as many (if not more) than I used to.

Thanks for visiting,
Aaron Popp

Know Your Roots

Front: Know Your Roots
Back: nothing

Ergonomically designed to not fit in anyone's hands, the NES controller is a modern masterpiece. They were fairly durable, however, as I used to smash them into things when games got too difficult. Ahh, memories.

Somnia - Subway shirt

Front: Somnia - Rock Fresh
Back: nothing

My band's take on Subway's logo. They've since changed the font in their logo, making it look more 'modern'. I guess that means this shirt is obsolete.....OR DOES IT?

Jack Daniels - white shirt

Front: Jack Daniels
Back: Old No. 7

Another Jack Daniels shirt and I don't remember how I got it.

I'm still having server issues. I apologize if the site isn't making the usual whirring and humming sounds it makes when it operates at 100%. I hope to have these issues resolved soon.

The Kicks

Front: The Kicks
Back: nothing

The Kicks are from somewhere in Arkansas. They used to be called Ashtray Babyhead, which is both a strange and compelling name.

Naked dragon girl on a reptile-thing

Front: naked girl with dragon wings sitting on some sort of dragon/reptile
Back: nothing

How awesome is this shirt? I got it at (where else?) a thrift store. It reminded me of the old sci-fi paperback book covers from the 70's. I looked up the artist's name (Boris Vallejo) online and found out he illustrated --- wait for it --- many science fiction bookcovers in the late 70's/early 80's.

Front: MOTH
Back: nothing

Moth is a band from Cincinnati, OH. They have a kind of new-wave sound (like The Cars) mixed with a heaping helping of rock and roll.

Clearance rack + Rancid shirt = Hell yeah.

Jack Daniels

Front: Jack Daniels
Back: nothing

I really enjoy Jack Daniels bourbon. I think someone gave this shirt to me in a bar, I don't really remember -- that's probably due to the fact that I had consumed a lot of Jack Daniels that evening.

Hannibal, MO

Front: Mississippi River - Hannibal, Missouri
Back: nothing

It is a secret dream of mine to own a riverboat and be a riverboat captain. I would have a small casino on the lower level, while on the second deck there would be a ballroom with a dancefloor and a luxurious bar. The house band would play dixieland jazz, and everyone would have a good time on my riverboat.

Sadly, I do not own or captain a riverboat yet. All I have is this shirt.

Mega Man - The Usual Suspects

Front: Mega Man - The Usual Suspects
Back: nothing

Mega Man 2 was the best Mega Man game. My friend Tim understands this, and got me this shirt a few years back. It features a few of the bosses from the game. From left: Heat Man, Quick Man, Flash Man, Metal Man, Crash Man.

The Hippos were a good ska band that is no longer with us. I weep.

Green Day - straightjacket

Front: Green Day
Back: nothing

Believe it or not, I got this at a thrift store. It was before American Idiot was released, so Green Day was pretty much under the radar at the time.

Somnia - puma logo (orange)

Front: Somnia
Back: nothing

Another shirt from my old band Somnia. Puma never sued us, so that's good.

Front: Slam-a-lama-ding-dong!
Back: nothing

Late last baseball season, there were some Bud Light commercials with TV announcer Joe Buck. "Slam-a-lama-ding-dong!" was his catch phrase, and everyone thought it was funny. Then, after everyone said it a million times, it got a little old. Now, after distancing ourselves from it for a few months, it's funny again.

I wore this shirt to my first game at the new Busch Stadium on 4/15! We won! Go Cards!

Front: Truman
Back: nothing

I attended the noble and historied Truman State University. This shirt accurately portrays the weathered past of the university. College taught me many valuable life lessons, the most important being this: Beer is good.

All I Wanna Do Is Rock

Back: nothing

Amanda got me this shirt for my birthday one year. She says the little cartoon guy looks like me. I think the little cartoon guy looks like Rivers Cuomo from Weezer.

Old 97's - Dallas Stars logo

Front: Old 97's
Back: nothing

I got this shirt at the Blue Note in Columbia, MO at an Old 97's show. I remember it because I wanted this shirt in dark green, but it was sold out, so I had to get yellow. AND, I bought an XL instead of a L. It was not my best t-shirt day.

Clutch - SOTU Tour

Front: Clutch
Back: Sounds of the Underground tour dates

We're kicking off the second hundred shirts with -- surprise! -- a Clutch shirt. Funny story -- I didn't get this shirt at the Sounds of the Underground tour, I actually got it during the Robot Hive/Exodus tour. Okay, so it's not a very funny story.

Tuesday, April 11, 2006


Front: Cardinals
Back: nothing

April 10th's shirt was special for two reasons -- one, it was worn to commemorate the opening of the new Busch Stadium. Two, it was the 100th shirt here on SASHDISH. That's right, 100 shirts. And I'm only about 2/3rd of the way through my collection! Click here to see all 100.

Front: Supercrush

If you are an avid follower of my t-shirt escapades (all 4 of you), you know by now that Supercrush was a band from St. Louis who have since broken up and reformed as Movie Star Kiss in Los Angeles. If not, now you know.

Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Front: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Back: see below

The back of this shirt features text from various letters that fans of the Bosstones have sent in. Apparently, a lot of kids told the band that they "kick ass". Each line below is from a different fan letter. Here's what the back of the shirt says:

"Dear Bosstones, you guys kick ass. You kick ass! You guys kick ass. All I really wanted to say is that you guys kick ass. Kicks all ass! Keep kickin' ass, kick ass ass kicken....you guys kick ass. Your kick ass music, kick ass band kicks all ass. You guys kicked some groovey (sic) butt. The Bosstones kick ass. You guys kick my ass. You kick ass. By far the most kick ass band. They all kick some serious ass. Kicks butt. Kick ass you kicked ass. You kick ass, keep kickin' ass, your band kicks ass! Your music kicks all fuckin' ass! Kicks butt! I think you guys kick ass. Y'all kick ass. Thanks. KICK-ASS! PEACE!! KEEP KICKIN' ASS! Sincerely.
P.S. The Bosstones kick ass."

Less Than Jake - Losing Streak shirt

Front: Less Than Jake
Back: nothing

Wow, I have a lot of Less Than Jake shirts. This is my third one and I think there are still two more to go. However, this one is my favorite. Why? Is it because of the horrible color scheme? No. Is is because it’s an XL, one size too big? Nope. It’s my favorite because it’s my very first LTJ shirt.

Got this for free at a bar from a Jagermeister rep. Mmmmmm, Jager is good. Unless you're my pal Brad.

Live - cross

Front: Live
Back: individual band photos

Back in 1995 when the band +Live+ did their MTV Unpugged show, Ed Kowalczyk wore a green shirt with a red cross (or a red plus sign, whatever) on the front. At that time I idolized Ed (and the rest of the band), so you can imagine how excited I was when I found a replica shirt that was also a concert t-shirt. For being 10 years old, this shirt has held up surprisingly well.

Tuesday, April 04, 2006


Front: A
Back: Absentstar

Absentstar plays epic rock and roll music. They are an unbelievable band from Chicago and they were recently signed to RCA records. I am proud to name-drop right now and say I am good friends with these guys, they're some of the best people you'll meet. If you don't know who they are now, you will when their album is released later this year.

custom Franklin shirt

Front: picture of Franklin, Gloriousness
Back: nothing

I wore this shirt on April 2nd to commemorate the 3rd birthday of our wonderful dog Franklin. Amanda got me this shirt for Christmas last year. It says "gloriousness" because Franklin is so glorious.

Front: Subrosa
Back: Talk Is A Waste

Subrosa is a band you've never heard of, most likely. They released their only album in 1997, they aren't around anymore, and the radio never really played any of their stuff. But if you see their album in the used bin at your local record store, you should pick it up.

TMBG - Indestructible Object

Front: They Might Be Giants - Indestructible Object
Back: same as front w/ Installing and Servicing Melody Since 1982

I got this shirt when I pre-ordered a They Might Be Giants EP. They are awesome, are they not? Yes. Yes they are.
