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

Red Solos at The Annex

Red Solos at The Annex

The last time I added a Beer Shots entry here on the blog I started out the post by saying, “It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry.” That was 14 months ago. Needless to say I’ve not been keeping up my promise to myself to be a better blogger. That said, back again tonight with a pic that… well… just feels right. The last pic was from The Annex and … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 33 Beeramid – The Last Ride?

WrestleMania 33 Beeramid

Father Time is undefeated. He quite literally never loses. At WrestleMania 33 last year we saw what was presumably the final match of The Undertaker’s career (until they decide to roll him out again in the next six weeks in preparation for WrestleMania 34). For over a decade now Pip and I have been building the structure known simply as “The Beeramid” while we watch WrestleMania. Several years back we started to produce our yearly … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 32 Beeramid – Return To Form

WrestleMania 32 Beeramid

WrestleMania 33 is just a matter of weeks away taking place on April 2nd, 2017. As has been the case for the last several years Pip will once again make the trek to CLE and we’ll rekindle our relationship with the one and only… Beeramid. As we do every year we’ll also come up with a drinking game to help us along the way and as I sat down tonight to start putting that together … 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

Pip, Chewie & The Princess

ROTJ - Chewie, Pip & Leia

Ran across this beauty on the hard drive this afternoon and just had to post it for Throwback Thursday. It was originally posted to the site as the May 2nd, 2005 Picture of the Week with the following caption: Sadly we recently lost Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) so it’s ironic and sort of sad that I saw this today.

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 Weekend That Was WrestleMania 32

Wrestlemania 32 Weekend

I’ve got a rule. I won’t go to Indy for my yearly trip until I blog about the previous Pip / Chewie weekend. Well, I’ve broken that rule since I’m writing this recap after I returned to Indianapolis. What can I say… bad blogger. As I write this recap I’m realizing that not only did I not do our yearly recap, but I never even got around to writing my Beeramid recap for this year. Apologies … Continue reading
