On this day in History March 2nd T-Shirt – Philip K. Dick

Trying out a new idea on Tcritic doing a daily t-shirt connected to a historical happening of the day, let me know what you think.

For March 2nd, i wanted to recognize the death of Philip K. Dick, avid science fiction author & explorer of the psyche.

The Dreaming Of Androids T-Shirt is a charming reference to one of Philip K. Dick’s renowned novel, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” which was the basis for the classic movie Blade Runner.

I also liked “Mental Refinery from District Cotton,” because of the similarity the woman bears to a replicant & the metaphorical exploration of the psychological.

UPDATE: More PKD stuff from Diesel Sweeties, thx boogah who suggested this in the coments

Also you can watch A Scanner Darkly, another PKD inspired movie on Netflix instant.

    Cool idea, and you picked the inspiration for my favourite movie as the subject for day 1, so I'm happy.

    That sheep t-shirt is great :D I'm actually reading a PKD novel right now (A Scanner Darkly), but I am unfortunately discovering yet again that he doesn't fit my literary tastes at all…

    Right, A Scanner Darkly, I keep forgetting that was him as well. Have you read Man In The High Castle? that was a rather interesting alternate history that was set in America but if the Germans and Japanese had won WWII
