Man, was the whole world obsessed with True Detective for a minute or what? Who didn't get shivers when Reggie Ledoux spouted off about time being a flat circle, right before he got popped in the back of the skull for being an unrepentant pervert.

The words stuck with character Rust Cohle so much that, under police interrogation he repeated those words, further explaining that everything everyone does was going to be repeated "over and over and over again."  

Cohle, whether he knew it or not, was summarizing Frederick Nietzsche who also thought that time was an endless loop and wrote "What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: 'This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more' ... Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? "  


Yeah, heady stuff for people who sell t-shirts, but sometimes this business feels like a flat circle where we print shirts and strive to print a lot of them all the while convincing ourselves of our own cleverness,    Whatever.

Buy this shirt and when your friends say "Hey, that came from True Detective" you can tell them that it actually came from Nietzsche. Then they will either be very impressed or call yo a snob behind your back.  


Not a heat transfer or a screen print, this shirt is hand-craftedly printed on our very own Direct-T-Garment printing machine.

Think of this as a Giclee print on a 100% Ring Spun Cotton t-shirt. Available in men's sizes Small-XXXL, If you need ladies sizes please let us know. The shirt itself is a 100& Ringspun Cotton shirt. Ultra-light cotton jersey feels fantastic next to your skin.
