Lately, I have had an urge to clean out my closets and cabinets to re-organize, to declutter, to make easier to find things, etc. Unfortunately, I have not had any time to fulfill this want. Maybe the summer will give me some time. Anyway, my clothes closet is in rough shape. Part of me blames the fact that I have been working at home, which means that I am not as worried about what I’m wearing. I tend to grab and go in a way that I wouldn’t if I traveled into a place of work. As I looked at my closet, I noticed that one whole corner features Duran Duran or Duran Duran related shirts.
I have like a lot of t-shirts (and yes, I intentionally wrote it like this). I have a lot of them. Many would say…too many. I have t-shirts that I have bought at shows, especially if they include dates of the concerts. Some, I have received as part of a VIP package through the official fan community website. I have some I bought through their website. I’m not going to lie. If I go to their official online “store” for something like a calendar, I find myself almost always buying another t-shirt, especially if there is a new design or a sale. I’m pathetic. Then, of course, I also own quite a few Punk Masters t-shirts, which I tend to think of as Duran related, especially the ones that feature something like a song title or lyric. On top of all of that, I have a couple “classics,” a 1984 shirt and one that I purchased at my first concert in 1993.
So, this leads me to a few questions that I would love for you all to answer:
- 1. Can you own too many Duran t-shirts?
- 2. Do you have a favorite Duran Duran shirt?
- 3. What makes it your favorite?
- 4. Are there some t-shirts that you own that you won’t wear?
- 5. If so, why?
- 6. Are some Duran shirts that you don’t own but you wish you did?
- 7. Are there other types of merchandise that you like to buy instead or in addition to?
I think that is it for now as I ponder what shirt I should wear next!
