The Day the T-Shirt Died

Blocktoberfest is perhaps the best people-watching event, ever. The amount of ironic t-shirts adorned by Arlington twenty-something yuppies was mind-boggling and downright annoying. Nothing finer than waiting in the beer line (but not the tickets to buy the beer) than standing behind some dude wearing a tee with the words "I Have a Big One" across his chest. Dude, seriously, did you have a premonition when buying that waste of fabric that chicks would immediately body splash you from every which direction when out in public? Or would you rather have a six year old kid by the Tilt-A-Whirl asking mommy what that drunken guy with the gelled hair's shirt means. Oh, and don't even get TUL started on the "Trust Me I'm a Doctor" one. Must've been at least three of those spotted. At least there weren't any Neighborhoodies to be seen.

We have quite a week ahead of us here at The Upstate Life. Tomorrow is the long-awaited Shins/White Stripes show at Merriweather and we could not be more excited since we'll be shoe gazing it up right in the orchestra pit section. I've never had GA seats at Merriweather that weren't in the lawn. I'm just praying that we don't have drunk high schoolers falling into us and asking for bottled water because one of their friends was curled up on the floor in the fetal position a la the craptacular Killers show.
