My love for the comedic stylings of the Auburn University Bookstore student workers has been well documented. Around 9 months ago, they released Episode One of their The Office-style docu-com(?). It made me laugh. Hard.
A few weeks ago, they asked for help with Gameday buttons in the same style. Today, in true college slacker fashion, after taking the same amount of time as the full gestational period of a human baby, they give us Episode Two. Enjoy.
You may not know that Auburn's Aviation Program is the oldest continuously operated program in the nation (1941). You may not know that the Aviation Management Program at Auburn is the State of Alabama’s only 4 year degree program in aviation. You also may not know that the program is in danger. For multiple reasons, it's possible that the program will lose accreditation by next Spring. This can be changed, and you can help at FlyAuburn.com.
The aviation world is full of many Auburn graduates that give the program a good name. So good that a certain famous, poofy-haired, smooth-legged, short-shorted aerobics instructor decided to throw his hat into the ring for support. I'm, of course, talking about Richard Simmons. Yes, THAT Richard Simmons.
The Auburn University Bookstore needs your help. No, what they need is to do another episode of their "The Office" style sitcom. Episode one was amazingly hilarious, in my opinion, and the powers that be need to give these kids time to film a follow-up. Note: I once ran into Aaron in the bookstore and congratulated him on being Student Employee of the Month. He politely reminded me that it was Student Employee of the Year. So yeah...
You know those buttons with the snarky remarks you see on people when trying not to make it look like you are staring at their chest on football gamedays? Yeah, those come from the Auburn Bookstore (located in the bottom of the Haley Center). As you'll see in this video, they want you to help come up with those. I personally love the Washington State Cougars one, but it probably won't fly.
Anyway, watch the video and click the link below to enter the contest (by April 27th). You win a t-shirt and 10 buttons if one of yours is picked, but what really win is Auburn Gameday Button fame forever.
Enter your ideas here, and post them in the comments below.
The Auburn men's basketball team lost a close one to the Florida Gators today by the score of 83-52. I can't remember one positive moment of game time, but during the 12-minute timeout in the 1st half, Aubie and the student section, also known as "The Jungle," partook in their own version of the world's latest craze called "The Harlem Shake."
I'm 30 with two kids so I'm not exactly where this thing got started, but I do know from YouTube that everybody and their mother has created one of these videos.
I love Batman and the Joker, but the subtle Florida fan by Aubie, I see you, and never sit in my student section again.
Charles Barkley has no filter. Sometimes that's a bad thing. Sometimes that's a good thing. In regards to what he did/said on TNT last night, it's a good thing... if you like trolling Alabama fans as some of us like to do.
It's a real shame that Charles can't even make a classy move like going to Tuscaloosa to congratulate Nick Saban and... well, just watch.
Since these were such a hit last year (that's what I've told myself), and since we are experiencing a new day in Auburn athletics (in football, at least), I figured it was a good idea to create a few more Auburn-themed candy hearts this year for Valentine's Day.
Some of these are admittedly bad, so if you think they are lame, just remember that I gave a disclaimer first. One day, I'm going to make these a real thing, but for now the web version will do. Happy Valentine's Day to All!
I know, I know. It's been a while. 19 days, in fact. If you're unaware, there will be some pretty big changes in the next few weeks for the Blogles. We're moving home, to the promised land, to the Auburn/Opelika area. It happens this weekend. So that's why I've been absent the last few weeks. I've had things to do, loose ends to tie up, a few Bams to level with. Real life and stuff. Expect more of the blogles you love (and maybe a new look) in the next few weeks, but just be patient. I'll be back at full force soon. Good things come to those who wait.
Now that I've got that out of the way, let's ease back into it. You may or may not know that Aubie defended his 2012 UCA National Championship around a week and a half ago. Hellbent on keeping the SEC and Aubie from winning yet another championship, they gave the dang trophy to Goldy the Gopher of Minnesota. Seriously? Who knew that was his name before I just told you? Nobody. Our beloved Aubie did come in 2nd place, though.
As the year 2012 comes to a close today, it's time to take a look back at 366 days worth of blogles and view the ten that piqued your interest the most. Given that this year was not kind in any way to the Auburn Tigers, I'm as ready to get to the new year as anybody. When the big three sports combine for a 45-57 record, it's hard not to look ahead, but you don't know where you're going unless you know where you've been... or something like that.
As it was last year, my uniform obsession seems to have seeped into your brains and taken a stronghold. Of the top ten most read blogles, four were uniform-related. Apparently it's not as pointless as some may suggest. It's fun, isn't it?
As far as the 'Blogle and all things 'Blogle are concerned, there was a slight drop in overall page views, but we all know that has to do with the fact that nobody wanted to read anything about Auburn after around October. Twitter followership did jump up around 9,000 sheep, uh, followers to over 25,000 in the year 2012, so there's that. As a guy that just does this as a hobby, I'm pretty proud of that. And as last year, I beg you, just give me a dollar a month. How hard would that be? I'm only slightly kidding.
Another year has passed and the 'Blogle is still here, so we can call it a success. I have many things planned for the new year, but I'll lay those out in my Resolutions post in the next day or so. For now, take a look back and feel free re-read the top 10 blogles of 2012.
