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

Front: Marines
Back: nothing

My pal Ron went to the US Naval Academy, then he became a Marine. My nephew also wants to become a Marine. Fortunately, I have never had the desire to become a Marine. I'm a lover not a fighter.

Back: nothing

A coworker of mine bought this shirt for me while on vacation in Hawaii. The Humuhumunukunukukuapua'a is the state fish of Hawaii, and "humuhumunukunukukuapua'a" is the longest word in the Hawaiian language.

Let's Go Bowling

Front: Let's Go Bowling - Rude 69
Back: nothing

Remember ska music? I do. I still love it. Let's Go Bowling is a ska band from California. Some friends and I saw them back in '97, and at the show my pal Matt bought this shirt. Years later he gave it to me.

Clutch - Okinawa & Hawaii

Front: Clutch - Okinawa & Hawaii March 2006
Back: sponsors of the show

My buddy Matt is serving in the Air Force over in beautiful Hawaii. He loves Clutch too, and he was lucky enough to see them on a USO tour that went straight through his military base. He was kind enough to get me a commemorative t-shirt.

Front: Truman
Back: nothing

Yet another shirt from my alma mater, Truman State University. This shirt is now almost exclusively worn while mowing the lawn or doing home repairs.

It is with great pride that I introduce the first (and only, so far) SASHDISH donor: FunnyDesigns.com. If you're into funny t-shirts (and who isn't), then this is the place for you. Check them out. Thanks FunnyDesigns.com!

Hurry Up The Cakes!

Front: Hurry Up The Cakes!
Back: nothing

Another shirt from Engrish.com. I'm not really sure what it means, but that's the beauty of it. I like to walk around and yell that at people -- "HURRY UP THE CAKES!!" It really confuses them.

System Of A Down

Front: System Of A Down
Back: nothing

Some people (like my mom) say that all this band does is scream and that their music is just a lot of loud noise. But I happen to really like them, for their music, their politics, and their overall craziness.

Old 97's - matchbox

Front: Old 97's
Back: nothing

This was the very first Old 97's shirt I bought and it's my favorite. I'm running out of things to say.

I'm also running out of shirts. Only a few people have taken me up on the "send me a shirt and I'll give you free promotion" deal. I think that I only have another week or so of new shirts, so stay tuned for the end to this freakshow.

One more piece of news (that I'll likely be mentioning more in the future) -- when it's all said and done, I'll be selling some of my shirts if anyone is interested. If there's one (or two, or forty) that you have your eye on, email me or send me a message or something. I'm not selling all of my shirts, just some of them -- if what you want is available, you can call dibs on it.

Somnia - Get Off Your Ass

Front: Somnia - Get Off Your Ass And Get Rocked
Back: nothing

This is also the final Somnia shirt I own. For those just joining us, Somnia was a band I was in for 6 years, but alas, we are no longer rocking.

Less Than Jake - trailer

Front: Less Than Jake - Gainesville, FL
Back: nothing

This is my final Less Than Jake shirt. I'd go back and count how many others I've worn, but I'm too lazy to do so. By the way, LTJ has a new album coming out on 5/23/06.

Old Crow Medicine Show

Front: Old Crow Medicine Show
Back: nothing

The Old Crow Medicine Show is a really good bluegrass band from Tennessee. Good stuff.

Front: CRUNK!
Back: nothing

One of my newer shirts. I don't really know what else to say about this one. Either you think it's really funny, or you think it's really stupid. But you can't deny the fact that it's green, and I think we can all agree that's cool.

Front: Superdrag
Back: nothing

I got this shirt in '96 or '97 at a Superdrag concert in Columbia, MO. They were opening for Weezer. It was one of my favorite shows ever. While they were around, Superdrag was extremely underrated.

Hooters - St. Louis

Front: Hooters - St. Louis - Westport
Back: nothing

I found this shirt in a thrift store. Who on earth would want to get rid of this shirt? At the time I bought it, I lived near the Westport Plaza area of St. Louis, so it was the perfect shirt for me.

The Urge - Straight To Hell

Front: Straight To Hell

I don't have many brown t-shirts, but this is one of them. I also don't have many shirts with a stick-figure devil flipping the bird, but this is one of those too.

Vandelay Industries

Front: Vandelay Industries, an Import/Export Company
Back: nothing

This shirt came with one of the seasons of Seinfeld on DVD. If you've seen the show (and by now, who hasn't?) you should get the joke.

Cake -- Comfort Eagle

Front: Cake - Comfort Eagle
Back: nothing

Cake is one of my favorite bands. I got this shirt on their Comfort Eagle tour in 2002. Go buy this album if you don't have it. Please, I implore you.

PDC shirt

Front: Professional Drinker's Club

     There's no need to get sloppy; We're professionals
Back: .....So, you're drinking

In college, I was a founding father of a wonderful organization called the PDC. We promoted drinking, both responsibly and irresponsibly.

Beaver Believer

Front: Beaver Believer
Back: nothing

Last summer, I visited my pal Gabe in Corvallis, Oregon, home of the Oregon State University Beavers. I am now, and always have been, a Beaver Believer; I am proud to proclaim this to the world.

Sam Adams

Front: Sam Adams
Back: Take Pride In Your Beer

I thought it had been too long since I wore a shirt relating to alcohol, so here you go. Although Sam Adams isn't my first choice at the tap, I will say that the saying on the back is very wise. Everyone should take pride in their beer, be it Samuel Adams or (in my case) Colt 45.

Raph Wiggum

Front: My Parents Won't Let Me Use Scissors
Back: nothing

This shirt was a gift from Liz P. She knows that Ralph is one of my favorite Simpsons characters.

Public Enemy

Front: Enemy
Back: Public Enemy logo

This shirt is almost 15 years old and is one of the favorites in my collection. I will never get rid of it. Public Enemy is one of the greatest bands of all time.

Harry and the Potters

Front: Voldemort can't stop the rock! -- Harry and the Potters
Back: nothing

Amanda got this for me at a Harry Potter convention. There was a band there called "Harry and the Potters", and she said I would have liked them, so she got me this shirt. And in case you're wondering -- yes, all of their songs have to do with the Harry Potter books.

RATM - Women

Front: Rage Against The Machine
Back: Women constitute half the world's population, perform nearly two-thirds of its work hours, receive one-tenth of teh world's income, and own less than one-hundredth of the world's property.

Amanda gave me this shirt a few years ago. The facts on the back show that we've got a long way to go to get to true equality.

Bud Light Cinco de Mayo

Front: Bud Light Cinco de Mayo
Back: 5

I got this shirt at Las Palmas mexican restaurant on Cinco de Mayo 2005. I wore it on Cinco de Mayo 2006. Since I plan on getting rid of 2/3 of my t-shirts when this little experiment is over, I doubt I'll have this shirt on Cinco de Mayo 2007

St. Louis Blues

Front: St. Louis Blues, Est. '67
Back: nothing

The Blues, coming off of their worst season in the last 25 years, will hopefully re-tool and be back next year to valiantly lose. I still love 'em though.

Clutch - Pure Rock Fury

Front: Clutch
Back: Pure Rock Fury

I'm not gonna lie to you -- this shirt is a little big on me. I usually wear size L, but this is an XL and it's a big XL. Since it's so big, I never really wear it. Yesterday was only the second time I've worn it. So even though I have a lot of Clutch shirts, this is the one I've worn the least.

Blue Nova was the previous incarnation of Absentstar, who you should be checking out right about now.

Less Than Jake - Pez kid shirt

Front: Less Than Jake
Back: More (much more) than Jake, Jake, Less Than Jake

Only one more LTJ shirt to go after this one! I think the back of this shirt is pretty clever.

Bangert Bros.

Front: Bangert Bros.
Back: nothing

This is a thrift store shirt. I think Bangert Brothers is a construction company, but I'm not sure. I liked the irony of a construction company having a logo written in pretty cursive writing. Oooh, and it's got a pocket!
