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

Meeting Robert Englund – Welcome To Prime Time Chewie

Robert Englund & Chewie

In a recent post I talked about how I got to cross off a bucket list item last month when Pip and I attended HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis and I got to meet Barry Bostwick.  The last line of that particular post I ended like this: “The weekend didn’t end there… I had another “nightmarish” encounter at the same show.  But that will be covered in another post.”  And finally… here’s the other post.  If you couldn’t … Continue reading

Meeting Barry Bostwick – The Good Guys Always Win

Chewie & Barry Bostwick

If you’ve read my stuff here you know that I’m a bit of a geek.  I tend to get a bit lost in my childhood and have a tendency to like some stuff that’s a tad bit out of the norm.  One example of this is my love for the 80’s action flick MegaForce.  It’s a supremely terrible film that I happen to absolutely love.  In fact, I listed is as #1 on my list … 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

Double Main Event (Kind Of) – WrestleMania VIII

WrestleMania VIII (1992)

Event: WrestleMania VIII Date: April 5, 1992 Venue: Hoosier Dome ( Indianapolis, Indiana) Attendance: 65,167 This show was billed as having a “double main event” which rarely (if ever) works out.  I believe that this is the first Mania event that I watched live on PPV.  We get Gorilla and Bobby Heenan on the mic here which is a good lineup.  Reba McEntire sings the national anthem.  It seems weird that the WWF can never … Continue reading
