Purple Shirt of the Week: The Price of Admission

No, this has nothing to do with my feelings of being robbed of my
money and time after seeing Transformers 2 last night (the movie
missed our low expectations - how?!?!?!?!)

I spent last week at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando for my day job (I
would confidently say i was probably one of their more unusual guests
they've had, given what i put some of the staff through; but the
lakers we staying there as well, so who knows what those guys do in
their off time...) Anyway, I was with Pete, and as we neared the end
of our stay he wanted to grab something for Father's Day - something
golf-related at the pro shop. ok, makes sense.

What didn't make sense was a polo shirt that cost $95. heck, pay
another $30 and you can upgrade that shirt to a whole bathrobe! Only
now as i type this does it seem like that bathrobe was a bargain.

So if you want to wear purple and play with the rich kids, you have to
pay the cover charge.

Michael Bay could afford this shirt. Maybe he bought a couple of
shirts, a bathrobe and some pants and then realized he had no money to
got some writers from the clearance bin and made his movie while
wearing his nice overpriced shirts.

I think that's what happened. So it's that clerk in the pro shop's
fault that I wasted 9 million hours of my life last night in the movie
theatre next to kids who were too young to be there but daddy wanted
to see it.

Purple Shirt of the Week: Martinis and More!

well, i am so far behind schedule here i'm going to end up ahead of myself. Though last time it wasn't my fault...

This is a compilation issue. I didn't have regular internet access for the last two friday, and i have non-shirt subjects, so here's what we've got: pictures from the last 10 days.

First up: what better than a well mixed martini than a martini in a light-up glass to serve it in? Better still, make that martini glass glow purple!

Sorry about the photo, it was a vivid purple, but my iphone camera is only so good. it turned the stem green, but you can see the purple aura around the glass. that's what I'm talking about!!

Up next is the reason why i was out of contact for 10 days - i was working on a show that i designed. Now, as opposed to the above picture, this was originally NOT purple, but blue. I specifically didn't want people who might know about my blog thinking i designed a purple stage. plus, blue looks better on video cameras. well, as the photographer informed me, an uncorrected digital photo of blue light will make it look purple. i dunno, but the pics came out purple. so had to share.

the second photo is backstage at my "command center" and that's glen my video guy. thats where i first noticed the purple photos coming out.

ok, that's it, more other stuff for me to do. go away. but tune in next week (though i guess that means later this week so i'm caught up) for a fab purple shirt i saw in my travels.

Purple Shirt of the Week: Put down the brush and step away from the can...

Ever have those moments where you ask yourself "is this a good idea?"
If you have, then it probably means it isn't.

These people, while clearly admirable in their love of the purple,
went just a LITTLE too far over it. I mean, they even painted the
foundation for Pete's sake! I guess that word of my blog is spreading
and these people are just big fans, as this house is just down at the
other end of my street.

I appeciate you enthusiasm. Truely. It touches me that you would go so
far as to paint your house to be on this blog. But really, I think
you've gone too far on this one. I'm sorry, but there, I've said it.

Now back to our postings of shirts and socks...

Purple Shirt of the Week: Get your Kicks

Here is a submission from my friend QuirkyNYChick. She just bought
new shoes. They're awesome. So is she and her musical tastes, but
that's another story.

I'm tired and it's been a very long week. So I have no embarrassing
personal stories. Maybe next week.
