I need someone to clarify something for me. And I realize that by asking someone to clarify something for me, I am inviting hundreds of emails to crash into my inbox in a torrent of helpful intention. And I welcome it. I hope this illustrates the urgency and depth of my curiosity on the matter.

Is Scrubs still on the air?

I was under the distinct impression that the series had been cancelled. However this series of articles gives me the impression that the show is still filming? Is it true? Inquiring minds (mine) want to know.

And if you haven’t seen Scrubs, you are depriving yourself of Zach Braff, which simply won’t do. Thankfully the first season is out on DVD now, so you can remedy your situation.

I’ve gotten an enormous amount of positive feedback on the shirts I unveiled last week. I promise a few of them will be available for purchase shortly. The other ones, such as the “Fuck Pants” design, the “Zergling Rush!” design, and the WoW Athletic tees will make their debut soon afterwards.

We are also planning to finally sell finely embroidered hats and beanies featuring the brand new Ctrl+Alt+Del Logo which I will be unveiling soon.

Speaking of cool shirts, anyone who has seen my dresser is often taken aback by the sheer amount of t-shirts I have. Since I work from home, most days I’m a “jeans and t-shirt” kind of guy. As you might imagine from my occupation, the majority of my shirts are webcomic shirts. Either my own designs, or those I’ve received from friends in the community.

We’re talking about 70+ t-shirts here. Earlier this year I started supplementing my wardrobe with t-shirts from a non-webcomic-related designer. At Otakon this past year I got questioned a lot about the shirts I was wearing, and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to plug them.

I’m talking about Threadless, and if you haven’t heard of them yet, it’s a really cool concept.

People submit their designs, which get voted on. The most popular designs get turned into t-shirts which everyone can buy. But only for a limited time, because then they go out of stock until enough demand builds to bring them back.

I try to stay on top of them myself, so I don’t miss any good ones. I’ve missed a couple of great designs, and it was really disappointing. I missed this one the first time around, but was able to get it on a reprint.

Anyway, if you catch me wearing a shirt that wasn’t designed by a webcomicker, it’s probably from Threadless. And now you know.
