A window inside life at Augustana College

Hello, my name is Gary Miller and I am currently a Sophomore at scenic and tree-filled Augustana College. I am a Colorado native who currently lives in downtown Denver and is a proud graduate of Columbine High School. I am an English-Creative Writing major with a Theatre minor, I also enjoy coloring outside the lines in the coloring books my professors give me here. I love being involved with Augustana football, wrestling, and Phi Omega Phi. If you take time to read my blog I can’t guarantee you will become smarter or know how to do Kung Fu like the Matrix, but you and I can be e-friends (as the kids call it). Most importantly — Go Vikings!

No Money, No Problem

  Being bored as a young man with little expendable funds warrants creativity.  If necessity is the mother of invention, boredom is the milkman. Days gone by of smacking a piñata with a blindfold as my friends celebrated the bleeding out of our favorite cartoon characters danced like the Vikettes in my head. The memories I decided to make […]

Augustana People: Alissa “Greek Chariot” Leirer

Alissa Leirer is an ear of corn. She’s a blissful day on the beach yelling at kids to quit stealing beer out of the cooler. She’s a centaur shooting arrows into a crowd of satyrs. She’s a jam filled peanut butter and rowdy sandwich. And she wants young prospective men, women, children, and the like to […]

Dictators Looking At Things

Anytime you have a rough day this week. Imagine these guys being confused by things. Comment with your own captions. Winner gets the internet.

Augustana People: Tesia “Joy for Substitute Teachers to Pronounce” Kolodziejczyk

Tesia Kolodziejczyk is an enigma amongst names and people alike. Some may know her as a member of the Phi Rho Nation, some may know her as a dancer, others may know her as a dancer abducted in a film made by Alvin Fonseca. I know her as a tiny dancer who holds this valentine […]

GO Mind Racer!

  I am a man with too much time on his hands. With that time I daydream. The mind races and thinks the same way a child speaks after a sugar fueled Christmas binge. Their little bodies downing sugar like a downtrodden Tony Montana downs daddy sugar. Sometimes thoughts shoot into a person’s brain and […]

Augustana People: Ben “Candy Necklaces” Hodges

I met Ben before we even set foot in a classroom. Getting to know him through football and living as a 1J warrior in Westerlin has been a pleasure. Some of Ben’s accolades as an athlete at Augustana include lettering all four years, being named Team Captain, and he is the recipient of the Jerry Freck […]

2014-A Disorganized Photographic Journey (For Serious Folks)

    This  past year Augustana presented me many opportunities to experience the country and do what I love at the same time. Here is a small collection of photos that highlighted a special journey. Thanks again.      

We drew a _________ on a bathroom stall, swiftly called it art and Taylor won a Gazebo From IKEA

  “I want to make sketch video” “I have a really good story, but I don’t know what to do with it” “I really want to try acting” “I would love to write a book” “I want to start making a film” “I have an idea for this movie where an adventurer, maybe an astronaut, […]

Skinning Pigs, Throwing The Skin Around, Having a Good Time as a Family

This weekend was an eventful Football weekend. Local Colorado news that only I probably care about: my alma mater Columbine beat rival Chatfield. Columbine alumni celebrated while Chatfield alumni went to high school parties wearing their letterman jackets talking about how funny that, “new Austin Powers was with the mini me guy”. Go home Tim […]

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like? -Internet

Before I get things started I have huge news! Take a guess at what it is!     That’s right, Bob Mazooka won his game of Jimmy Smits against Captain Ahab last night!     Another bit of good-news-happy-joy to swallow down into that hungry brain of yours, a little birdy told me the Mcrib is back or made […]
