What are you wearing?

I’m wearing a black t-shirt, a gift from my brother Dan and his wife Nancy. The stark minimalism of its design casts me in the role of a theater techie by appearance, particularly as I am also wearing black pants. The design on the front consists of four lines of elegant Times Roman text in simple white letters. It reads:

Theatre is life.
Film is art.
Television is furniture.
– Unknown

This is a quote they came across and liked, so they had a small number of them made to their specifications. I am the proud recipient and owner of this unique gift!

That's wonderful!

I am wearing a favorite tee shirt of mine. It bears a scathing speech from Shakespeare's King Henry IV. It's a blck shirt and i've got on black yoga style pants.

Happy Aril Fools day :)

I've got on one of my brown Old Navy spaghetti-strap tank tops, and my black exercise pants with the aqua stripe down the legs. Fashion diva on the weekends, I'm not. :)

However, I did just make myself a t-shirt on cafepress.com; on the back it's got a cool picture of Lady Death, and I added my character name to it. On the front, it says:

Come to the dark side.
We have cookies.

The art in that icon is lovely. May I ask who the artist is?

This is probably a stupid query, however, I am accustomed to doing and saying all manner of things that smack of stupidity...Lady Death from The Sandman ? Probably not, yet I ask.

No to both! *dances* :)

There was an unfortunately short-lived comic company called Cross Gen who put out a number of really artistically beautiful comics. I thought the plots were fine but apparently other people weren't too enthralled because the comics are gone. Titles included Meridian (which is where that icon came from, and where my s/n is from - I actually named my EQ char for that comic), Scion, Mystic, Sojourn, Brath, and several more including Lady Death.

Here's the Lady Death graphic I used for my t-shirt.

Awesome graphic!!!

I know Cross Gen well, (I had a little Cross Gen key chain a couple years ago, (which sadly broke). I do recall Lady Death, but, obviously never read it. I did like Sojurn though.

It's a pleasure to meet another comic book fan :)

Thank you for answering.

YAY somebody else who knows Cross Gen!

My fave titles were Meridian and Sojourn. :)

Oh and sorry I don't know who the exact artist is. :(

I want to know more about that t-shirt! It sounds quite exceptional!
I'm curious to know what speech it is. If it's too long to type here, do you know what act/scene it's from so I can look it up myself?

It was gifted to me by a beloved friend who recently saw A Winter's tale at The Globe. Knowing my great obsession affection of Shakespeare and my philosophy that insulting ought to be a recognized art ;) the shirt bears the following:
Away, you starveling, you eel-skin, you dried neat's-tongue, you
O, for breath to utter what is like thee!
you tailor's-yard, you
sheath, you bow-case, you vile standing tuck.

P.S. I'm particularly interested as I recently saw a couple friends of mine in an all-female version of Henry IV.
