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

Mastercard and College… Priceless

Pip Mastercard

It’s been forever since I’ve done a Pic From 406 entry. Today’s entry for Throwback Thursday was originally posted to the site the week of March 2nd, 3 with the following caption: Putting a picture of you with your friend passed out behind you on your credit card…priceless. That’s brother Pip’s credit card. I’ll leave it to you to try and remember (figure out) who’s on the couch 😉 Do you have any other 406 related photos? … Continue reading

Praying to the Porcelain God

Heather Toilet

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Pic From 406 entry and I figured this was as good as any to get us kickstarted again. This week’s entry for Throwback Thursday was originally posted to the site the week of January 1st, 2002 with the following caption(s): Top 5 Captions: 5. Someone’s in my bed, so I had to find some place to crash. 4. Damn, I dropped my keys… 3. Might as well paint … Continue reading

The Shirt – I Don’t Even Know Where To Begin

The Shirt - Kruk

I honestly don’t even know where to begin this post. Strike that. I guess I know where to begin. Indiana. More specifically Indiana University. Beyond that I’ve got nearly nothing. Jenny posted these three pics to Facebook the other day of herself, me and Steve. Neither Steve nor I have any recollection of this particular night. Per Jenny: “I got this shirt from my aunt as a serious gift. The loser of our game had … Continue reading

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

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

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
