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

Jimmy Buffett 2001 at Deer Creek

Welcome to another Throwback Thursday edition of the 411 from 406! Today we’re looking back at a 2001 Jimmy Buffett show from what I can only assume was at Deer Creek Music Center (currently the Klipsch Music Center and formerly the Verizon Wireless Music Center). Would you just look at those young faces!!! And let’s be honest, who DOESN’T like a good Jimmy Buffett show. Hell, even if you don’t like Jimmy Buffett you’d be hard pressed … 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

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
