From the roof tops

Sometime during the heavy snowfall (and subsequent snow-days) of the winter of 2015 I decided the roof of the unused building across from Callahan was disappointingly bleak (perhaps I was suffering cabin-fever?). So I added a nice message for my fellow dorm-mates and school employees.

Yeah, this one was probably on the more risky side of silly things I’ve done, all things considered, but I was safe about it. Anyways, WHOOOHOOO FOR SNOW DAYS!

The Debate Tweets

So NKU informatics department streamed a live feed of the first 2016 Presidential debate in our Digitorium. They also had a live voting count and a live twitter comment feed on screen… Its as if they assumed we wouldn’t hijack it for Trump and Harambe memes!
Or at least thats what I did with it.

Every single tweet got a chorus of laughter from the theater! Thrilling to say the least. It made the debate buffoonery go down much easier.

Here are a few of the tweets, all from my various random fake twitter accounts for shenanigans (these accounts will be featured in several other shenans in the future!)14522255_1236731093035444_1779258818_o

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.
twitter post
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 :'(

The Cozy Parking Spot

If an old Cozy Coupe car is being thrown out, it might as well provide someone with one more laugh. Or many people with a laugh. So that’s just what I made happen.


Basically I just put a cozy coupe in the best parking spot near the front of my dorm hall. I even outfitted it with a fake, clearly photocopied (with the numbers covered up) NKU parking pass in it. You know, just in case any of the parking goons wanted to ticket it.

It was the talk of the day, or at least the afternoon bus ride for Callahan Hall! I’m pretty sure I saw a tweet about it, but I didn’t save it or screenshot it, oh well.

It got moved to the sidewalk pretty quickly, but only after having the fake parking pass stolen.
I would love to know who took the parking pass and what they did with it. lol

Of course I went back and retrieved it later and properly disposed of it. Otherwise that’s littering, which isn’t fun for anyone.

Changing Sorority Girl’s Car Paint Gang Signs

Temporary car paint is only supposed to be left on for a few days to a few weeks at a time. It can actually permanently stain if you leave it on for too long!
Since a lot of the sorority and fraternity students at college were leaving this paint on their windows on for months at a time (or in some cases, as long as 4 years), I decided the least I could do is help them out with a little gag.

Basically I just changed their frat or sorority (gang sign) letters to different Greek letters in the same place. Others, like the one in the picture above, had their propaganda statements written on them, so I spell checked them. You know, to help them out. They are in college after all.

Most of them noticed and changed them back pretty quickly, but I love the idea of someone just driving around, then looking in their rear view mirror and realizing “WHAT I’M NOT IN OMICRON SIGMA GAMMA!”
