Tracing it back

No word back from NerdyShirts. I'll give it a while before trying again to contact them.

In the meantime, I think I've found just how they got a hold of my shirt. I checked their wall on their facebook page.

August 5th, Matt Lally posts the photo of me on the NerdyShirts facebook page:

August 12th, NerdyShirts announces the Twilight shirt's availability on their facebook page:

Am I being paranoid for asserting the timing so adamantly in all this so there's no question NerdyShirt's shirt came after my stunt at Comic-Con? Probably, yeah. But I'm sticking to my guns, I still have no clue as to how NerdyShirts will respond to me (if at all), so consider this a form of insurance.

Matt Lally, in case anyone's interested, seems to have found my shirt through a post on Topless Robot. Jesus Christ, these names. This also fits together, the "Quixotico" that NerdyShirts referred to in their facebook post is a name on a comment on the Topless Robot post. I'm surprised that anyone would expect this much thought being put into this silly shirt that I'd try to embed a thesis in something as simple as how I half-assed the lettering. Really I was kinda down when I first saw how misaligned the text was, until I thought "No, this is actually great! It looks so shitty!".

Another interesting note:

Arcane said:

"Buffy stakes Edward" shirt is lame, Buffy could never stake Edward.

This guy though, between the Joey Ramone Glasses and this shirt, must be just draped in vag.

Sadly, this Arcane guy's wrong about that, which kinda depresses me. Maybe I had a solid chance with that fat girl who called me a jerk at Comic-Con and I was just too stupid to realize it.
