The Glory of the Tubes

As I have grown older, I have acquired a fondness for t-shirts that is bordering on the insane. My favorite place for shirts is TopatoCo.com which originally started as the place for all your fine WIGU and Overcompensating t-shirts, but has since morphed into a free for all bonanza of excellent clothing bits. My two favorite shirts, "The Monkey Represents Sharing" and "Dr. Monkey Knows What You Did" are from TopatoCo.

Because I love these shirts so much, and because they represent a certain geek cachet, I usually wear them to my various geek gatherings, such as the Frontalot show and more recently, the Jonathan Coulton concert.

Imagine my surprise, when looking through the referrer logs for the site, I found that my picture of me and JoCo had been added to the TopatoCo photostream on Flikr. It's kind of odd to see yourself represented on the internet in a manner that you didn't expect, but at the same time, once shit is out there for all to see, it's out there. That being said, I don't care, and if it shows people that wearing TopatoCo merchandise means you get to hang out with cool-ass musicians, then I'm all for it. Now I just have to figure out a way to submit my picture with Frontalot and we'll be all set.

Thanks, although I think you're being extremely generous with both the "15 minutes" and the "fame" part of your statement. ;)
