WS_OutOfNowhereI am a fan of Doctor Who. And I thought I’d start talking about the T-Shirts I’ve collected over the last few years that I really enjoy. This first one, I believe, actually predates the return of the series. The title of this shirt is “It Came Out of Nowhere.” Granted, one could suggest that it should be entitled “It Came Out of Nowhen,” but I suppose that’s just me being geeky and pedantic. Granted, a quick check shows that this shirt only dates back to 2009 so I am in fact bereft of accurate memory.

I like this shirt because it is just so simple and says so much. The design pulls from two fandoms and allows them to literally collide at the point that they cross over. There is no Doctor visible so this isn’t tied to any specific incarnation. It’s just a simple statement about both universes. This is the core of fan-fiction. Basically a double tribute that requires a penny-weight of thought to enjoy.

My only real issue with this shirt is minor. The grey background (similar to the white of the prints) all but loses the smoke coming out of the Delorian. I’m not exactly sure which fandom you’d call on to provide temporal road service, but it is fun to ponder.

I give this shirt 8 out of 10 sonic screwdrivers.

This was posted to me a few years ago… I posted it a little over 3 years ago. I felt like reposting it while I’m working on a more ‘researched’ post.

You know you’re living in the modern age when:

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.

6. You go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.

7. You make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial “8” to get an outside line.

8. You’ve sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three Different companies.

10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o’clock news.

11. Your boss doesn’t have the ability to do your job.

12. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.

13. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the screen.

14. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

15. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.

16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. 🙂

17. You’re reading this and nodding and laughing.

18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

19. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a #9 on this list AND NOW YOU ARE LAUGHING at yourself.
