More of my favorite t-shirts...

I promise I am not turning this into a shopping blog, but I am trying to make it more interesting to read, while at the same time having it still be mostly about me!

So I'm continuing on the theme of local (New Orleans) t-shirts and t-shirt designers that I love. I mentioned Dirty Coast and TrumpeTees already. Well, the other day I got a MySpace message from the good folks over at Metro Three that they have a few new designs, and I think I really need to get one of them: "I Left My Heart In New Orleans." It's on a black t (can't go wrong there), and shows the New Orleans skyline with a big sunburst heart above it. I love it! Next time I'm in town, I'll have to drop by their shop on Magazine Street and pick one up. I can never get enough New Orleans-themed t-shirts!

Their new "Whooo-Dat" shirt is pretty funny (I am growing a tad bit weary of the hipster owl, but this is a good use of it), and I never did get one of their now-classic "Make Levees Not War" shirts (kept trying, but they were always out of my size in the brown). Did you know that it comes in a tote bag now too?

And if you act fast, you can get FREE SHIPPING on your Metro Three orders. Just type "freeshippingnow" in the Voucher section at the start of your checkout. No telling how long this offer will be valid, but for now, buy as much as you want, and get it shipped for free! Maybe that's just the kick in the pants that I need to finally get some of their stuff!

I did manage, however, to finally obtain one of my other long-time coveted New Orleans shirts, a while back - a Defend New Orleans shirt, the one with the microphone, silver print on black. Defend New Orleans mastermind Jac Currie was vending at one of the New Orleans Craft Mafia Crescent City Craft Markets, and we were able to negotiate a trade (he's now the proud owner/wearer of one of my "Old School" cassette t-shirts). I've always loved Jac's stuff, from way back in the days of Turncoats on Magazine Street, which is how I originally met him. And I just think it's wonderful, what he's been able to do with Defend New Orleans, turning it into a non-profit tool to promote the city. Check out the new Defend New Orleans Blog, and keep an eye out for DNO Books shows and events around town.
