Thanksgiving at 406

These photos popped up in my Facebook news feed the other day, shared by none other than Mr. Jeff Tyler who had a ‘disposable camera’ on hand at the time. I believe these were from a Thanksgiving feast where some 406ers chose not to leave Bloomington (school year 97-98). As we’re in Fall headed toward the holidays I figured this was a great day to share. Enjoy! Do you have any other 406 photos? Send … Continue reading

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

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

Panama City Beach 2006

Welcome to Throwback Thursday which just so happens to be Cinco de Mayo! I can remember quite vividly (or hazily as the case may be) at least a couple of Cinco de Mayo celebrations with my 406 brethren through the years. As I was going through my archives I ran across these BRILLIANT pics from a Panama City trip some of the fellas took back in 2006. Note that the captions on each photo were … Continue reading

Big Trouble For The Dream Warriors

2015 HorrorHound Indianapolis - LoPan (original)

So it’s nearly WrestleMania time once again! In less than a week, Pip will make his yearly trek to Cleveland for a weekend of pretending we’re way younger than we actually are, movie viewing and general bad behavior. I won’t speak for him but I look forward to our twice yearly get togethers and I start counting down to his Cleveland trip pretty much from the time I pull out of his driveway on my … Continue reading

Spring Has Sprung – Jimmy Buffett 2004

Spring has sprung! We’re now officially no longer in Winter and when the weather turns warmer there’s nothing better than a night out with some friends with some good tunes. For today’s Throwback Thursday we’re looking back at a 2004 Jimmy Buffett show from what I can only assume was at Deer Creek Music Center. Even if you’re not a Buffett fan, I’d urge you to go and experience a show at least once in your … Continue reading

Indiana University Homecoming 2002

I almost missed it! Sorry I’m WAY late in the day, but here’s your weekly Throwback Thursday spot on 406. Today we take a peak at the 2002 Homecoming Game. Well… let’s be honest. We’re actually looking at the tailgate. I’m not sure any of us even made it into the game. (Maybe Gookins… and perhaps Buford for a a quarter or two). I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again. I’m … Continue reading
