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

Happy Birthday To The Rockstar

Dawn Puking

Well, it’s not Throwback Thursday, but it’s Dawn’s birthday so I figured what better day to post this gem. WAY back in the day in the first iteration of the site, I had a feature called the Picture of the Week. This particular photo originally ran on May 27th 2002. Happy birthday lady! Hope you have a simply outstanding day. Miss you! Update Photo credit goes to Pip. Per the man himself: “It was shot … Continue reading

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

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

Bow Down To The Plaid Flannel

Pip, Wes & Chewie

I’m not sure when it happened.  Must have been sometime between when I left Cleveland and arrived in Bloomington.  Plaid became cool.  And not just plain plaid… FLANNEL plaid. Perhaps it was a carryover from the “grunge” movement that was sweeping the nation but I can tell you this – the majority of the pictures I’ve got from college have SOME plaid flannel in them. As you can see here, I’m sporting the standard backwards … Continue reading
