I Love Free T-Shirts But I Don’t Like Sweary T-Shirts

Thank you kindly to the guys at Sell Sell for sending me a free t-shirt. I love free t-shirts. When I get sent them I’ll blog about them or Tweet them or whatever. I’m a free t-shirt-whore-blogger.

Here’s the t-shirt they sent:

I don’t know why it is, but I find swearwords on t-shirts incredibly offensive. So much so that I couldn’t blog the picture without blanking them out. Which is really strange because I don’t mind a bit of colourful language in real life. I use it on my blog. I use it on Twitter. But I feel like there’s something just really crass and vile about sweary t-shirts. Or maybe I’m just becoming a prude.

I guess it’s the fact that your swearyness is being imposed on other people. In the same way I don’t like people shouting swears on the street. But if someone has opted in to the odd swearword through following me on Twitter then I have slightly less reservations about it.

I don’t want to appear ungrateful. But at the same time I suppose I am being really ungrateful. Oh, and whilst I’m in full-on ungrateful git mode: XL is really massive (for anyone wishing to send me any kind of t-shirt medium is a good bet – the Poke address is as good a place as any to mail things).

This t-shirt actually makes me feel sorry for Jonathan from Spotify. I don’t like the idea of people hating him this much. I liked light-hearted ribbing of him – and calling him a Croc-Wearer, is about as far as his crime goes in my book. This t-shirt based fatwa is a step too far.

Jonathan, if it makes you feel any better I won’t be wearing this t-shirt.

Sorry Sell Sell guys. But thanks for the t-shirt. It was a lovely and kind gesture. I’m sure there will be people who like the t-shirt, and some of them might hopefully see it here.

Jonathan From Spotify Ruined Your Playlist

Jonathan from Spotify...

http://jonathanfromspotifyruinedyourplaylist.com/ is my favourite website of today. If you don’t know Jonathan from Spotify, he’s the guy who interrupts your listening pleasure with his little adlets.

I’m sure he was forced to do it, so I’m not confident that we should all be picking on him. However, what I love about this site is that I think the level of insults pretty much fit the crime.

But that’s not the reason that I really love the site. The real reason is that it’s driven by Google Docs. That’s how we should all be rolling. Use a Google Spreadsheet as a CMS – that’s how we should be rolling in 2009!

I suggested this to one of our developers a few months ago and he said that I was some kind of fucked-up freakish alien techno-idiot (I think those were his exact words) – having seen this I feel vindicated, marginally.
