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

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

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

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

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

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

TBT – Gookins’ Wedding

Gookins Wedding (8)

Welcome to today’s Throwback Thursday! Our good friend Ryan Gookins spent many a days and nights at 406 (seeing as he lived right across the parking lot). Here’s the original album that we shared on the site way back when he got married. Gotta love drinking directly from the Bud Light tap and (Pip?) double fisting bottles of booze. That needs to be your profile picture everywhere sir… Do you have any other 406 related photos? Send … 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

There’s Always One

There's Always One

If there’s one universal rule when taking pictures at a wedding (especially as the night goes on) it’s that there is always (at least) one person in the photo that is “that guy”.  In this one we’ve actually got two options. The first that jumps out is Dark… not much else to say when you’re the dude in the photo LICKING someone else. But don’t overlook Gookins… the look is priceless and definitely is in … Continue reading
