I apologize for posting this so late. I meant to do it earlier, but my 2 year old daughter decided to do a swan dive off of the couch and break her arm. First haircut and first broken bone in the same day, not bad.  

Big thanks to Heiko for manning one of my cameras and taking the majority of the photos below. Enjoy!




Brian had to sign his name well over 400 times yesterday. This photo was approximately number 50. He was very excited!


Tacopants was in the house..He shot this photo.

The photos that I am in go towards evidence that I am not exceedingly photogenic, but nonetheless, these are awesome photos. For as long as I was able to stay, I had a blast.

so we could hit a brewery or two afterwards.  She's the one working on the sucker (needed video instead of a still shot for that). 

She's awesome as hell and still looks great at 50.  I'm pretty sure we were the oldest attendees.

It doesn't matter if it's 5 or 95 or if you're going to work or the beach, Korean men wear suits, especially black suits. I don't take it that far but I do usually go with business casual when taking out the trash. Wearing a t-shirt in public would be like going outside without pants (which most of you also seem cool with). I guess it's just strange to suddenly realize that I'm probably the only person here who doesn't own any Michigan apparel and that if I ever returned to the town in which I was born and raised, I would feel out of place.

I realized just how drastically low my michigan apparel was saturday when I realized that A.) I only have two michigan t-shirts any more and B.) both were dirty.... hence the Che Guevera shirt  (communist revolutionaries love michigan football)....

I have a lot of michigan hoodies and coats, winter stuff, but not enough summer stuff... time to go shopping! 

ps.  I wish I could go outside without pants on but sadly no one wants to see that so I am 'oppressed' into wearing pants every day...

I like to think of my self as some sort of modern member of the brotherhood, hence 'we are the dead'.

sidenote:  I read 1984 at least once a year and consider it the most important book ever written (import due to both it's prophecy and the real wisdom/understanding of what power is)

for the next Photoshopping thread; now I have new ammunition!

But seriously, I wish I could've made it to the release party. Great work by everyone involved with the magazine.

Am i the only one trying to figure out who is who in the pictures?  Not real names but their MgoBlog persona's.  It would be way cool if the pics had captions like "Section 1 explains his Free Press theroy to OMG Shirtless while RDT-WIAG listen in".

well to start, he's my father.  (for real)

Second, he's an immigrant from the Soviet Union who adopted michigan football to replace soccer, his first fanatical love.

He's also crazy, prefers to pace around the house watching parts of the game on 3 different TVs when things are going well, and following the game on the internet when things are going bad.  He kicks my mother out of the house during games because she's bad luck.

And he hatest Michigan State with every fiber in his body even though my sister went there.

He's a Michigan Man.

What about any of that is "crazy"?  

Wait, do you mean to tell me that pacing around in front of a TV for four hours and then not letting my wife watch the last play of the Sugar Bowl b/c she hadn't been in the room before and might "jinx it" was somehow a crazy thing to do?  Now whose talkin' crazy!?

But I feel like I was well represented-- I counted at least 4 of my shirts just in a brief scan of the album.

Who's that wearing my Chuck "Shadow Heisman" design? FWIW I'm wearing the same tee as I type this!

..sopogon, talking to someone who I need to email back today so thanks for the reminder.

(I'm, like, wearing a nametag in the photo!)

And that's my favorite shirt! Brian gave me crap for being the guy in the band who wears the band t-shirt to the show. I said if we're trying to sell t-shirts, why wouldn't we have the best-looking person modeling it?
