Kreator – Coma Of Souls

Today at the office, over the morning coffee, I somehow remembered that I had a few of those really horrible, scary t-shirts when I was a teenager.  (I still have plenty of black t-shirts, but the subject changed from music to geek humor.)  It took me a while to remember the name of the band for at least one of them – Kreator.  The t-shirt that I had was with the cover image from the “Coma of souls” album.  Here it is (mine was all black though, without red squares).

The moment I saw that phrase appearing in my Google Reader (here is some info about ThinkGeek feeds), I wanted to buy this t-shirt.  Even before I saw the actual t-shirt.  Even despite my total ignorance of nanotechnology.  It’s just so hilarious and true and makes so much sense at the same time!

It’s good to know that sports-ware manufacturers realize this problem. That’s why they make t-shirts with just their brand labels – “Nike”, “Adidas”, “Reebok”, etc.  These aren’t even real words…
