Indiana University Graduation Day 1999

Indiana University Graduation 1999

This week’s entry for Throwback Thursday comes from IU Graduation Day 1999. This was originally posted as the Picture of the Week for January 21st, 2002 with the following caption: “We’re smiling for 2 reasons. One, it’s graduation day and we’re celebrating the departure of the last remaining 406’ers as they journey into the great beyond known as the “real world”. Two, there’s an awful lot of ass grabbing going on here.” Would you just … Continue reading

Life As Floyd

Today’s Throwback Thursday spotlights our good buddy Floyd. Floyd came to IU the same time we all did and his nickname was derived from his hometown, Floyds Knobbs. I think I may have actually called him Chad once or twice ever, and I haven’t felt right about it since. He had some pretty interesting roommates through his stint on Thompson 5, but he made it through and was a part of the 406 origins. Floyd was … Continue reading

Chewie’s Crazy Days

Chewie's Crazy Days (3)

For today’s Throwback Thursday I’m pointing the spotlight directly at myself. Don’t want anyone to think that I’m posting all of this stuff of everyone else but have forgotten just what a jackass I was in college. As I’ve pointed out in the past, this gallery shows once again just how much flannel I had, how many earrings I thought were cool and how many bad decisions and poor facial hair choices I made back … Continue reading

Nothing But a Good Time With the Amish

Founding Father Wes, or Amo as he was affectionately known, was always the life of the party. Here’s an image gallery that was posted to the site under the tagline of, “Amo – Nothin But A Good Time”. Looking back over these photos I can’t help to notice just how much flannel there was going on… not to mention some incredibly creepy facial hair choices from ol Chewie. Seriously… why didn’t anyone tell me I … Continue reading

TBT – Floyd’s Wedding

Welcome to today’s Throwback Thursday! The timing of this one is sort of ironic as 406 Founding Father Floyd just celebrated his 14th wedding anniversary yesterday! Here’s the original album that we shared on the site way back when he got married. It just goes to show you that whether at “home” at 406 or out on the town, these folks know how to party! Congrats and happy anniversary my man! Do you have any other 406 … Continue reading

Jimmy Buffett 2001 at Deer Creek

Welcome to another Throwback Thursday edition of the 411 from 406! Today we’re looking back at a 2001 Jimmy Buffett show from what I can only assume was at Deer Creek Music Center (currently the Klipsch Music Center and formerly the Verizon Wireless Music Center). Would you just look at those young faces!!! And let’s be honest, who DOESN’T like a good Jimmy Buffett show. Hell, even if you don’t like Jimmy Buffett you’d be hard pressed … Continue reading

The 406 Northlane Move Out Letter

406 Northlane Front Door

For Throwback Thursday I wanted to share something that I recovered when I was removing some stuff from the server where this site was originally hosted. This is the letter that we received the day we finally moved out of 406. Looking back at it now it’s certainly not something I’m proud of, but it definitely brings back some very vivid, and dare I say outstanding, memories. On a side note, our landlady Rachel passed … Continue reading

TBT – Indiana University Homecoming 2001

Indiana University Homecoming 2001 (1)

Way back in the day (circa 2002) this site looked something like this. Back then, I had a feature on the site called “Pics From 406”. It was a collection of the (very few) photos that I took during college. Fewer still have been ported over to this site and are located here. Well, I was going through my hard drive last night and ran across those photos and since my memory is getting really bad in … Continue reading

The T5 Flaming Keg Shirt

The T5 Flaming Keg Shirt

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Pip’s sister letting me know that she was making him a quilt made out of t-shirts and was wondering if I had any input.  Not only did I have some input but I had what I thought was the perfect shirt to add to the mix… The T5 Flaming Keg shirt.  Back in our days in the dorm, Pip and I lived with a great group … Continue reading
