Executing TortoiseGit from the command line

I love git, but as much as I like the command line, there are some things that are ever so much simple with a UI. Most specifically, due to my long years of using TortoiseSVN, I am very much used to the way TortoiseGit is working.
I still work from the command line a lot, and I found myself wanting to execute various actions on the UI from the command line. Luckily, it is very easy to do so with TortoiseGit. I simply wrote the following script (tgit.ps1):
param($cmd) & "C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\TortoiseProc.exe" /command:$cmd /path:.
And now I can execute the following from the command line:
And get the nice UI.
Please note that I am posting this mostly because I want to be able to look it up afterward. I am sure your git tools are superior to mine, but I like the way I am doing things, and am reluctant to change.
