You like that alphabet soup title? It’s Throwback Thursday: XRT (radio station) Big Holiday Concert. In this case, 93.1 FM’s holiday concert from December 11, 2009, featuring opening acts Pete Yorn and Phoenix and headliner The Flaming Lips.
My longtime pal, Karl, posted a request on his Facebook page asking people to type a single word describing how you met him. Another friend, Lynne, posted “LostBlog,” which, despite being two words, brought back memories of one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my near two decades of blogging...
I really hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (if you’re in the U.S., of course) with whomever you elected to spend it.
Just a little more than a week ago marked the eight-year anniversary since my brother and I graduated from the Fire Academy.
Halloween is my favorite holiday. It always has been; always will be. It’s quickly becoming Nathan’s favorite, too, because he loves cosplay. Oh man, I can’t wait until I can take him to a Comic Con.
Why, yes. Yes I do like taking pictures of sunsets. It’s one of my favorite things. I don’t care how cliché it may seem, sunset photos are awesome.
Remember oh-so-many years ago when Oprah Winfrey stood behind Book-of-the-Month-Club awardee James Frey when his book A Million Little Pieces was proven to not be as non-fiction as originally purported?
I always really loved this photo I snapped of a sunset over the I-88 tollway. It was a wallpaper on my old work computer.
I thought it might be interesting to post my first photos on Flickr and Instagram as a Throwback Thursday this week. Why not, right?
It should be obvious where this Throwback Thursday was taken... el Gran Cañon!
Last year, I posted a Throwback Thursday of Katie with Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek and his Dancing with the Stars partner Anna Trebunskya from 2010.
Since I posted that picture of Roger the other day, I thought I would show a pic of my very first laptop. His name might have been Lomby or the like, which is short for Lombard, the model of G3 PowerBook it is.
This Throwback Thursday is of my ID badge at work. The photo was taken on my first day just shy of 11 years ago.
For as much as little kids complain about having to go to sleep, they sure seem to enjoy it once they're down.
Here's a throwback to a time oh-so-long ago. That time we woke up and looked out our hotel balcony at East Bay of Traverse City, Michigan.
I forgot all about these Choose Your Own Adventure books I found at my parents' old house about a decade ago.
This is our home phone. It's one of a pair of phones we have at home connected to the home phone number Katie and I have had since 2001.
I was checking out Facebook when I came across this gem from 2011 that was created by the splendid LeSombre. It's his homage to Reservoir Dogs featuring all his geeky friends. I was honored to be counted amongst them.
I found some old USB thumb drives in my desk drawer and was about to throw them out because they were really low capacity. Kinda pointless to keep them when they're low, right?
Last night, Katie and I were paring things down on our bookshelf when I found these little gems.
Two weeks ago, it was a TBT post about my Nintendo DS. Now, following that as well as two similar posts from Marty (Post 1 | Post 2), I'm going to post another Throwback Thursday: Video Game Edition featuring my Game Boy Color!
This is another one of those Throwback Thursdays that's not an old photo so much as a new photo of an old object.
A while ago, I posted a series of TBT pics of what I basically dubbed my multiple failed attempts at youth athletics. Just not in so many words.
As this is still the Month o' Katie, I figured I'd give her some more Throwback Thursday treatment.
As Katie declared to me last night, “This is my week! My month! Celebrate me!!” So I suppose I should take a moment to explain why…
For the next few weeks, I'm going to feature TBTs of Katie. Why? Her birthday is coming up!!
In honor of National Wear Red Day tomorrow, I found this Throwback Thursday photo of all three of us wearing red.
This selfie of Nathan and I dated back to January 12, 2013. How this photo is now four years old is beyond me.
I was checking out my Dropbox folder of Nathan photos and found this gem of Nathan and Katie from just a few days after he was born. Probably within a day or two of coming home.
Nathan loves Christmas tree ornaments and, thankfully, he's become really respectful of them this year.
I guess I could've done this a week ago when the 75th anniversary happened. But I didn't realize all these photos had been uploaded to Flickr.
Do you remember last week when I said that one of my fond memories of Gatlinburg, TN, was my attempt to overcome my paralyzing fear of heights by bungee jumping?
I've had an on-again/off-again relationship with comic books. I read for a year or two, stop for several years, and pick it back up again for another year or two.
Since we're all still basking in the glow of the Cubs ending their 108-year drought, I thought I'd share another gem from a Cubs v Yankees game Katie and I went to in April 2011.
In honor of the next three World Series games being played there, this Throwback Thursday is dedicated to Wrigley Field.
