Starting Today: Nerd Shirt of the Day Marathon! Plus: a GIVEAWAY!
Nerd Shirts are a big part of how I show my nerdiness!
I have been a t-shirt guy for my entire life. To me, an experience isn’t fully experienced unless I get a t-shirt as a souvenir. In the case of my nerdery, it’s how I show off the nerdy stuff that I love! Some people wear their heart on their sleeve—I wear mine just a little bit to the left (or right, depending on the shoulder you start from).
I pick up more t-shirts every year and the video below shows where I was at in 2020 with almost 90 nerd shirts. Well, it’s two years later and I definitely have a larger collection. But enjoy the video below and get a sneak peak of the upcoming marathon of daily updates that you’ll be able to follow on my Twitter or my Instagram (or maybe my Tiktok if that is at all practical). You’ll also be able to point your browser at this very Substack that you are reading right now for weekly, 7-Nerd-Shirts-at-a-time updates so you never miss a Nerd Shirt!

Oh and the new Nerd Shirt of the Day Marathon starts TODAY, August 12, 2022—just 4 days and 2 years from the day the below Nerd Shirt of the Day marathon started!
How it’ll work
I plan on doing this marathon in an organized fashion. I hope to be able to post once a day— I will be traveling in September and October so there will likely be missing days, but I will do my best.
The shirts will go by themes. I am a nerd about a lot of things so I have the obvious Star Wars and super hero shirts, but I also have tech shirts, art shirts, and Japan shirts—Japan shirts were not included in the 2020 video above. It didn’t occur to me that the level of love I have for Japanese culture definitely pushes me into the “nerdy for Japan” zone. 日本がとても大好きですよ！(I love Japan so much!)
There will also be subcategories within each theme. For instance, I have many Star Wars shirts, so I’ve organized them into groups, like all of my Mandalorian-related shirts, or all of my Ahsoka shirts. Likewise, amongst my selection of tech t-shirts, I have Apple shirts, maker shirts, and gadget shirts. I will also be interrupting this plan with special t-shirts for special days. Like, I tend to wear Mystery Science Theater 3000 shirts on days when an MST3K event happens on Gizmoplex.com or a Marvel comics shirt when a Marvel TV show is on. So, watch for Spider-Man t’s once She-Hulk starts to air on 8/18!
The first theme I’ll be starting with are tech shirts. I will try to coordinate things so that I start the Star Wars theme on September 21, to coincide with the premiere of the new Star Wars series, Andor.
How long is this Nerd Shirt Marathon going to run?
I don’t have an exact count of the number of nerdy t-shirts I currently own but I am expecting the marathon to last into December or even into 2023.
