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

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 – The Many Faces of Buford

Sorry for the late Throwback Thursday post but I said I’d try to roll them out weekly and dammit I’m going to try and stick to that. Buford was a “Founding Father” of 406 Northlane and I think it’s fair to say he was always, and still to this day is, the life of the party. This particular photo album was pulled directly from a backup I’ve got of the site. Ladies and gentlemen, I … 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

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

Channeling 406 – This Is IU

This is Indiana!

Pip sent me this video earlier today… I clicked and had absolutely no idea what to expect.  I quite literally got goose bumps.  THIS video is the essence the college experience at Indiana.  These guys (who apparently have some fame in the Hoosier state) don’t know it, but they’ve completely channeled the 406 Northlane experience. Please don’t take this to mean that life at IU was all about partying.  There was certainly (more than) a … Continue reading

Damn Was That Fun

Pip & Chewie Pose Down

Warning: This is going to be one sappy post. One of the really crappy things about growing up is that people have a tendency to move away from one another and friendships are tested.  It becomes hard work sometimes to maintain a friendship (though Facebook has made it easier to keep in touch).  I’m happy to say that Pip and I have never had that problem. A couple of weeks back I headed out for … Continue reading

Thoughts For Monday

IU Football

The goddamn jackhammer is back.  We’ve had a week of silence so this comes as a very unwelcome shock to the system.  All I can say is this better be the best restaurant in downtown Cleveland when they’re done. Mondays suck.  They suck even worse when Sunday night is bad. Mobile devices are now officially the bane of my existence.  This includes cell phones, BlackBerrys, etc.  Sure they’re nice when you REALLY need to get … Continue reading

Sweet Home 406

Chewie & Pip Go Home To 406

They say you can’t ever go home.  In this picture, Pip and I prove that it simply isn’t the case.  This photo was taken 5 or 6 years after we left Bloomington during one of our trips back for Homecoming.  Not sure if the residents were even home but we just had to head home and snap this picture. There never was a more perfect time than to thanks the Barenaked Ladies for their classic … Continue reading
