Good Times

Ah, good times were had at Goof's coming back to Texas party. Props to his mother-in-law and everyone who had the idea to bring together mass quantities of alcohol and food. The every sexy and intelligent Jen got to take her first sip of Goldschlager. That was pretty smooth considering she is a wine cooler kind of gal. The rest of the Goldschlager was polished off nicely by me and my opportunistic drinking buddy, Zach. I am not sure if it is spelled "Zack" or "Zach," but I need to drink more with that guy. Also, we got a good pic of the guys flashing some pseudo gang symbols. That is always fun. Apparently, I drank too much cheese tonight, but I still got this post up. I am a pro.

Last Post Before Summer Pass Out Post
Saturday May 19th 4:40pm by Brian - E-mail Brian IM Brian

Well, I figured I would post a few things to prove that Matt and I aren't dead before we do the last post before the summer pass out. It appears that the Dixie Chicken is the College Bar of the Month on Playboy.com. Thanks to Jen at The Campus Rag for pointing that out to me. She must visit Playboy.com more than I do. And for those of you who like pictures, here are some pics from us drinkin' at The Bench.

Wild Ass Sunday Nights
Monday May 14th 6:30pm by Brian - E-mail Brian IM Brian

So, evidently last night happened. Kind of blurry though. Multiple glasses of Scotch will affect the memory. At least we found everyone, and I even got up in time to sober up in the waiting room in the courthouse. Now, I can do my community service at my place of choice. Hmm, Alpha Delta Pi is a non-profit organization, and I helped them with their website. That technically counts as community service. Damn the man. Damn him good.

To check out more pics from last night and a good story of the night's events, go to Marc's Site.

New Icons

2 3 4

Three new icons have been made to support TamUt.com. We felt that the people needed more TamUt.com icons to choose from, and I am sure more will come in the future. All of the icons here and the original TamUt.com buddy icons can be found on the Buddy Icons Page.

Tonight, I get to kick it in exciting A-town. Well, at least I got good gambling buddies in town, and Jolie and Katy will be by later. So, fun shall happen even in A-town.

Good Times at Em's
Friday May 11th 7:00pm by Brian - E-mail Brian IM Brian

Well, I had to take at least one pic from the party last night, and I think I picked a good person to take a picture of. Overall, last night's party at Em's was pretty good. Too bad we ran out of beer, but luckily I had some reserves of alcohol stored in The Bar which is no more than 1 minute from Em's place. I had to make sure Nicole got plenty of booze in her since she turned 21 at midnight. So, Happy Birthday to Nicole. My apologies to Jason if she got a little too much booze in her, but I am sure last night will be considered light when compared to the events of tonight. Ray gets the quote of the night award with "Hey, what's the fastest way from 6th Street to College Station?"

As the semester ends, I am sure some people are not wanting to leave their college town and a lot of their friends. Others, I am sure were damn glad to get away from their roomies. For the latter group of people, I think the best way to amicably move apart is for one of the roomies to just pack their stuff up and move out. No need to say goodbye or even inform your roomie when you are moving out. Just let your roomie come home one day and wonder where you and all your stuff went. Props to Jackie for actually doing that. Damn you rule.

Well a couple of nights ago I was out at SWT partying. -Click Here- to see the pics from partying out there. Yea, I probably should have been studying since it was dead week at UT and all, but why would I want to do that? SWT was done with finals this Wednesday so they all got to just party knowing that all they have is summer ahead of them whereas I had an exam yesterday and this morning. But it's all good, I bent both of those tests over and gave it to them dry, and I only have one more to go. Fuck, I just found out A&M is done with exams too? Bastards. Why the hell does UT have to stay a week longer? Oh well.

Most of you probably wondered what was up with the Cal-Maine poll. Well -this girl- was trying to tell me that EVERYONE knows what Cal-Maine Foods is. I had never heard of them before and didn't think that anyone else did either. But she just thought I was way out of the loop b/c I didn't know who they were. So I figured most of the TamUt readers were reasonably intelligent and would know something like that if it were common knowledge. To get to the point, 66 people didn't know 11 people did. If you want to learn what the hell Cal-Maine Foods is, -click here- (Disclaimer: The information on this link may contain boring and mind-numbing infomation, view at your own risk).

Also, new poll is up in case you were blind.

Good Times at Josh's

The Host Pimpin'It

Last night was pretty damn good. I didn't even have to leave the apt complex to party. Props to Josh for hosting a bad ass party and getting lots of women there. Too bad one of the guys had to go to the hospital with a .31 BAC, but he turned out ok. The Black Death off the shot block was pretty fun. I'm not sure what all was in it, but any drink named after a plague which wiped out 1/3 of a continent sure does kick some ass. And for the first time, I saw someone sippin' on some Courvoisier at a party. Although, that man didn't appear to be gettin' with several unsavory skanks as the real Ladies' Man would have done. Oh well. Click here to see the rest of the pics from last night. Tonight shall bring us good times again although the location is not set yet. If you up for some partying tonight and are still in College Station, IM me. As I am typing this, I realize there is a small cut on my wrist. Must have been playing with the sword a little touch much. Bons temps.

Ok, new poll again. Results from last 2 polls: Most people will marry rich and Cal sucks. Answer this poll w/o asking anyone else about it.

No, I'm Not Dead

Damn, it has been a good while since I posted. I have busy with this whole thing called finals- the period of time at the end of each semester when I study my ass, listen to the "Dark Side of the Moon" continuously, don't sleep at all, and limit my food intake to items from Wendy's. If that ain't healthy, I don't what is. At least it all ends tomorrow. Then, I get to relieve all that stress and indulge in the post-finals glory. For those of you at UT with finals still left, I have a few methods to relieve some of the stress that builds up during finals. First, you can't forget the basics. Nothing says stress relief like alcohol and firearms. Sure, some "experts" think firearms mixed with alcohol is dangerous. That is just to keep others from knowing of the fun. For those of you with no access to firearms, here is a fun little stress relief computer game that went around my work this past summer. It just might be a little safer than real guns. Well, 8 hours to petroleum engineering exam. Time to keep this all nighter going.

Summer time,
Monday May 7th 6:15pm by Matt - E-mail Matt IM Matt

... and the livin's easy. Yea, summer will be here in a couple more days. With summer comes Corona's by the pool, partying any night you feel like it, and the end of Hockey season. Both Brian and I will be heading back to Arlington for the summer, which means the partying and craziness will be brought down a few notches.

We've been thinking long and hard (a couple of minutes while drinking at a party the other day) about what TamUt is doing for the summer. What we decided is that we're going to do a semi-closure. We'll leave the message board up for people to still post shit from wherever they end up for summer and we might post every other week, but in general we'll just be working on new back-end code and upgrading the site. We'll save most of the material we get from the summer to keep Fall entertaining (so we don't slack like we have the past couple of weeks). It's been a damn good first year.

The new poll is up for the people that were bitching. Doc Brown's DeLorean won by a count of 228 votes to Homer's toaster's 215.

Knocking on Heaven's Door
Saturday May 5th 6:00pm by Matt - E-mail Matt IM Matt

There are times when drinking gets a little too excessive. These times include: when you just about die, and ... well that's about it. Drinking, partying, puking, dry heaving, and hangovers are all just part of the college life. It's when you push the borders of life and death that you got to watch the fuck you are doing.

A couple weeks ago a friend of mine got a ride home from guest-bouncing at a club for a private party. When he got out of the car he walked about 10 feet and did a face plant into the concrete. There just happened to be two cops near by that saw him and called the ambulance. Normally I'd say, "damn cops." But it turns out my friend had a .348 blood alcohol level. If I'm not mistaken, that's pretty much knockin' on heaven's door. Luckily he turned out to be alright. Pretty damn crazy shit. Above is a portion of his medical report or you can click here to see the whole report. Moral of the story, dying from drinking is bad.

On an unrelated note, I think we both did some crazy partying last night. I was the the Delta Chi Muai party. But of course my dumb ass forgot to bring the camera. We haven't posted a new set of pics in forever. Maybe we'll get some this week.

One more thing, I've got a digital video camera lined up. So the activity is good to go now.

Good to be

After my Engineering 211 exam, I got an early start. Damn, I got an early start. Jon and I were drinking Manhattans by 3 PM. That is pretty damn hardcore. Then, I took a break to eat and shower. Then, it wasn't long before two very beautiful girls(pictures aboved) showed up. Then, I got to go with those two beauties at Cody's. Being "that guy" can be good if you do it right. And being "that guy dancing with the two hotties" is never something I avoid. Too bad we had to leave a little early because I sure wouldn't have minded more dancing more with those two. Thanks Crazy for bringing such an attractive friend.

fuck yea

Well it's about damn time. The last class day of the semester. But it seems like just a week ago that we were in spring break and just a week before that the semester started. I think it's the fact that I took 17 hours and worked that caused the semester to fly by. All I know if that I don't have an exam until Thursday and I have a lot of drinking to do between now and then. The partying definitely starts tonight.

To those if you from SWT and Tech that haven't had classes since last week, we don't care. So don't go bragging.

Wanted. Video recorder for miscellaneous TamUt activity at UT. If you have a camcorder and will be around UT for the next week IM me and I will give you the details about this activity. Trust me, it is good.

Office Space
Wednesday May 2nd 3:15pm by Matt - E-mail Matt IM Matt

Well with the end of the semester comes exams, finals, projects, and other things that we all love to do. A side effect of all these things is a little frustration, maybe even anger. Personally, I've been working on my MIS project for the past 4 days straight (and will continue through tonight), and I've started to experience a little of this frustration myself. Many times I've been tempted to show my computer or the lab computer what was up. But the rational part of my mind keeps my hands from bitch slapping the side of the monitor after thinking how much I paid for the bastard. So what keeps me going? This guy does. As you can see he is applying the "Mighty Kumquat" procedure to fix his sick computer.

Registration Sucks
Tuesday May 1st 12:55pm by Brian - E-mail Brian IM Brian

Registration just sucks. There is no way of getting around saying that. I am glad that I didn't get shafted with my schedule this semester since I did register a week ago. However, I feel sorry for those freshmen(and sophomores who forgot to register) who are going to have all 8's mixed with those labs til 10PM. To add to the prison raping of registration, A&M still uses outdated phone registration. Even monkeys could come up with a better registration system than that. What's worse is that you don't always get a busy signal when you dial in; sometimes, you get to hear several annoying rings followed by some annoying bitch telling you that the phone is busy. You might as well just have some guy pick up and say, "You're not going to get in for another fucking hour, but keep calling anyways." To counter the annoyance of the A&M phone registation busy message, I suggest you download this Simpson's clip which demonstrates a much more humorous automated telephone machine.
