Conan’s Home

Last week I moved into my new apartment near NKU. Seeing as my apartment windows face the main road of the complex, my dear friend Conan has been on guard during spooky late night hours.
You know, just greeting the neighbors.

Say, how much is that Handsome Barbarian in the window?

Office Chair Fun

Office chair riding has long been one of my favorite forms of recycling! But once last year me and my bandmates at the time ended up being the the talk of the day on the national radio station K-LOVE after one of our neighbors called in during a caller segment asking “what is the craziest thing you saw this weekend?”
So yeah. One of my previous bands was on K-LOVE. Not for our Christian rock music though. For riding an office chair behind a car…
Unfortunately the segment wasn’t recorded, so I can’t show it to people… Highly disappointing.

Anyways, for several years whenever we have an office chair to be thrown out, we give it one last good use. With a helmet and kneepads, and a car to hold on to, a simple office chair can turn into a ton of fun!

You can only get up to about 15 miles per hour before the wheels start giving way or you begin to topple.
We have rode countless office chairs, and every time the wheels melt or break off at about the same distance, which if your wondering, is about 1 mile.

Apparently office chairs are designed for 1 mile of rolling and have a top speed around 15MPH. Now you know!

R.I.P. Good Parking

Last year, when our university housing department decided that “beautification trees” would a good use of several of the best parking spots in our already-at-capacity parking lot, I at least wanted them to know how we felt…
Or at least make someone laugh.
To that point, I think I hit the nail right on the head. I made some lawn signs in the shape of grave stones and painted them with the phrase “R.I.P. Good Parking.” I stuck them in the ground of the recently departed parking spaces and even placed some fake flowers in front of them.

They were a big hit! Several Callahan and NKU students tweeted them around that afternoon! I’m just glad I was able to express what we were all feeling in a fun, silly way.
Those parking spots were so young, it was sad to see them go :'(
