Indiana University Homecoming 2003

Indiana University Homecoming 2003 (24)

It’s that time of year… the leaves are changing colors, the temps are falling and there’s football on every weekend. Here’s your weekly (ish) Throwback Thursday spot on 406. Today we take a peak at the 2003 Homecoming Game in Bloomington. Well… let’s be honest. We’re actually looking at the tailgate party. I can’t recall if any of us ever actually stepped foot into the stadium. These photos / captions are taken directly from the … Continue reading

The 406 Usual Suspects

406 Northlane Front Door

A continuation / follow up to last week’s Dirty Dozen post… I’ve been going through the long process of cleaning up web servers, merging and migrating old hosting plans, deleting stuff, archiving stuff, etc. What can I say, I’m a web geek. I ran across this particular page today and wanted to share. Way back in one of the first incarnations of this site there was a page called “The Usual Suspects”. It listed all of … Continue reading

The Dirty Dozen From 406

406 Northlane Front Door

As you may or may not know, I’ve been going through the long process of cleaning up web servers, merging and migrating old hosting plans, deleting stuff, archiving stuff, etc. What can I say, I’m a web geek. I ran across this particular page today and wanted to share. Way back in one of the first incarnations of this site there was a page called “The Dirty Dozen” which listed all of the people other than … 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

Indianapolis Trip 2012 – Cover Band & Brewery

Pip's Guitar Complete With The 406

Last weekend was my yearly trip back to Indianapolis to see Pip.  As in previous years, I headed out on Friday afternoon and drove across “corn corridor”.  I had a couple of conference calls to take in the afternoon and luckily my boss was kind enough to let me do them from the road so I got out to an early start.  The weather sucked ass coming out of Cleveland but after about an hour or … Continue reading

Yearly Trip To Indy

Pip & Chewie At Nickel Plate

I recently made my yearly trek back to the Hoosier State to see brother Pip.  As always the weekend went way to quick, but it was absolutely awesome to see Pip and Lauren again.  I look forward to this trip every year and it had been a while since I’ve made the journey.  Last year, instead of going to Indy for a weekend, we made the trip to Bloomington to be with Matt & Lauren … 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

Team Pip Adds A New Member

Lauren & Pip's First Kiss

So if you’ve been keeping up here, you know that ol Pip went and got himself married this past weekend.  The wife and I went back to my old stomping grounds of Bloomington, Indiana to partake in the festivities… and partake we did! We rolled in on Friday evening just in time for the wedding rehearsal and dinner.  The Pips decided to get married at a BEAUTIFUL facility on the south side of Bloomington called … Continue reading

See You Tomorrow Brudda!

Pip & Chewie In Milwaukee

Tomorrow morning, A and I are heading back to Bloomington.  It’s been forever and a day since I’ve been “home” and I simply cannot wait.  There’s never a BAD reason to visit Bloomington, but this time I’ve got an absolutely outstanding reason to visit… brother Pip is getting married! I haven’t been this giddy since the day before WrestleMania 😉 It’s almost go time Pip.  See you tomorrow my man – you’ve got yourself some … Continue reading

Long Before Poker Became Cool

Poker

This pic just goes to show that 406 was well ahead of the curve when it comes to “cool”.  This picture was taken during Homecoming festivities in 2002.  I tell you, there’s nothing quite like an outdoor poker game during the festivities surrounded by your friends. You don’t need the the best free no deposit codes or VIP points, no all you need are your friends and a bit of healthy competition. In retrospect, it … Continue reading
