Way off topic, but a college buddy of mine is in the Guitar Center Master Satriani guitar contest and could use a few votes. I've checked out several of the guys ahead of him and, frankly, he blows many of them out of the water. It's really just a popularity contest and it'd be cool for this guy to get up there, and even win.
His name is Que (pronounced "Q" or kyoo) Rhee and he graduated mid-90's in engineering. Very cool guy. I still remember jamming with him, totally butchering the lyrics to Comfortably Numb while he just killed the solos.
Anyway, to vote for him,

You can do all three, by the way.
I've had two double ardmore scotchets (smokey) and a couple double rum & cokes. I'm drunk off my ass. What are you drinking. WHOO!!
I know this isn't relevant for around 99% of you, but I am starting up what's known as a "Spirit Group" in Eugene, Oregon. It is basically a mini-Alumni Club, and the plan is to host game watching, networking, and other Michigan events. The events will be open to everyone (alumni, fans, etc). I have been living in Eugene for around two years now, and since there are 500+ alumni in the area, this seemed like a good idea. Help spread the word! Thanks!
Here is some more info from the official message that went out. My email is included at the bottom:
Dear Fellow Wolverine
I have an interest in forming a University of Michigan Spirit Group through the Alumni Association for the 500+ UM alumni who live in the Eugene area. The primary purpose of the group would be to bring UM alumni (and fans) together a few times a year to cheer on the Wolverines.
- Maintain a group of at least 4 alumni who will serve as the group’s contacts, including one who will serve as the communications point person
- Provide information for the group’s website, which includes the group’s contact information. The Alumni Association provides the website and will maintain it for us.
- Host a minimum of three alumni event(s) per year (e.g. game watching, cultural, networking, community service)
- Promote the group’s events in e-TrueBlue (Alumni Association electronic newsletter), through the group’s listserv and the group’s website
If you are interested in joining me in forming and maintaining the spirit group, please contact me by email at [email protected]
Without much time left for OT threads, and with profitgoblue taking a temporary hiatus from posting these threads, I thought the time was right for another. What's everyone up to at work? At home already? Big plans tonight? Let's have some fun, it's Friday at four (for those of us in the Eastern Time Zone).
You may not believe it, but we are almost out of OT time for 2012! Pretty soon, all threads must be on topic!
Don't miss out on your last chance to just completely flip out:
Instead, come with me on a magical journey into total OT-ness. You'll feel like you have superpowers! You'll feel like you've got a hand full of vertebrae and a head full of MAD!
The mods want to silence you! The mods want to tell you not to use this thread and put in whatever you want.
Do not listen. You're almost out of time! Flex your OT gunz!
Get in there, post some entirely OT content, and FIGHT!
User mgobleu's comment in the Big Ten basketbally championship ring thread (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/michigan-basketball-2012-big-ten-championship-ring) got me to thinking - did you guys and gals get class rings when you graduated HS and/or college?
Honestly, I don't remember if many people in my HS class got rings, but I did not.
I did, however, get an awesome unique super-special mystical-powered M-emblazoned class ring when I graduated from Michigan (thanks, Jostens!). I used to wear it pretty often the first couple of years out of school, but haven't in a long time. I'm still glad I got it, but don't wear it. Don't regret not getting a HS class ring. School colors were green and white, so that actually sorta worked out... ;)
Also never bothered getting a ring when I graduated from business school. Do people get rings upon completing their graduate degrees, too?
