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

Abbey Road vs. Kirkwood Ave

Pip Anniversary

So my good buddy Pip celebrated his 9th (!) anniversary yesterday! To say time has flown by is an understatement. I remember his wedding like it was yesterday and thanks to Facebook I got to look through those memories and photos again today. One of my all time favs is this one from photographer Stephenie Cobb Knoll who awesomely re-created the Abbey Road album cover on the corner of Kirkwood Ave in Bloomington. In case … 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

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
