The Travels of Cardboard Jim Traber: 2009 Norman Music Festival w/ Cardboard Cornett

nmf-09-035

I think it’s safe to say the 2009 Norman Music Festival was hit.  Attendance exceeded expectations, the weather was perfect, we had press passes, and for the second year in a row, Cardboard Jim took to the streets and mingled with the crowd.  This time around, he also brought his friend and colleague Cardboard Cornett. Yes…it was a cardboard extravaganza.

After the jump, check out a bunch of the pictures we took of Jim with the hippies, hot chicks, shirtless boys and chicks from Wimgo that the mean Wimgo guy told us not to take pictures with. Be warned that since there are a bunch of images, it may take a while to load.  Enjoy.

Cardboard Jim told these yardbirds what it’s like to be a big time radio star.  Cardboard Cornett told them about Bob Cortese.  The guy on the right starred in Rushmore and is in the band Coconut Records.

These girls were impressed with Steve Hunt’s handy work.

This is why Regular Jim Traber breathes so heavy when he is on the radio.

The guy wore a “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” shirt in hopes that he could be a “Of Montreal” groupie.

The guy in the funny hat is Billy Ripken.  Cardboard Jim has some funny stories about Billy Ripken.

These outstanding individuals were very impressed that Cardboard Cornett came all the way up from Oklahoma City to attend the Norman Music Festival.

Right before he cleansed the cardboard colon, the dominate duo made these friends.

The boy in brown has very long hands

This picture was taken before the mean dude with glasses from OPBUCO got mad at us.

The real question is what is the guy doing behind Cardboard Jim?  Maybe that explains some things.

For some, reason Cardboard Cornett and the Thunder Girls disappeared after this picture.  They said they had to go to Oklahoma City to take care of important business.

Hurt that Cardboard Cornett ditched him for Thunder Girls, Cardboard Jim needed a distraction.

nmf-09-0781

And another distraction.

And one final distraction.  After this, he was good to go.

Cardboard Jim was pretty sure he had seen these guys before.  He thinks it may have been at Lake Hefner.

nmf-09-137

This guy was hiding from the man behind them.

nmf-09-1361

This guy and Cardboard Jim were dancing to the loud and annoying tunes of “Man Man.”

nmf-09-1301

These were Jim’s homeboys from back East.  They hadn’t seen Jim in a long, long, long time.

nmf-09-1291

The girl on the right had big earrings.

nmf-09-1281

This picture was also taken before the mean dude with glasses from OPBUCO got mad at us.

nmf-09-1271

The girl in the pinkish redish orangish dress ended up being pushed to the ground by her excited friends.  The creepy guy behind them helped her up.

nmf-09-1201

This guy kept demanding that we give him Brent Skarky’s phone number.  We told him that Regular Jim Traber knows Brent Skarky.  This satisfied the guy.

nmf-09-1191

This guy told Cardboard Jim that he was a big shot ad agency guy and that Ackerman McQueen sucks.  He also said Renzi Stone likes to be tickled.  Just kidding, he didn’t say either one of those things…or did he?!?

The second best part of this picture is the beer sign floating at the top.

nmf-09-1101

This guy claimed to write for either The Red Dirt Kings or Gossip Boy OKC.  Or that may have been some other guy.  That’s what I get for drinking while working.

nmf-09-106

Cardboard Jim’s favorite Interpol song is “No I in Threesome.”

nmf-09-1041

These yardbirds invited Cardboard Jim to go to the roller derby.

nmf-09-0971

For some reason, this guy was excited to see Cardboard Jim.

nmf-09-084

These picture reminded Jim of when he and Cal Ripken would hang out in their underwear.

Okay….

When we saw these strangely dressed Wimgo girls, we quickly darted towards them to get a picture.  As we were getting the picture organized, some mean little guy with glasses who was wearing a Wimgo shirt told the girls to not take a picture with us.  I asked him why, and he said “Because you will make fun of us.”  I then told him that we wouldn’t post the picture and they we wouldn’t make fun of them.

Anyway, I guess I lied on the “not posting” the picture part, but that’s what they guy gets for being a douche bag.  However, I didn’t make fun of them.  I let the picture do that.

So there you have it:  the newest installment of the Travels of Cardboard Jim.  If you didn’t see your picture, or want to see more pics, we will be posting a whole lot more on our regular Facebook Page and our Facebook Fan Page.

  1. Isn’t the guy with the beard in the Parrot Head T-Shirt, State Representative Joe Dorman of Rush Springs?

  2. Didn’t realize that Cardboard Jim had such gravitational pull. Check out the girl with the “I heart OK” T-Shirt to his right. Standing at attention and getting ready to take off.

  3. “Didn’t realize that Cardboard Jim had such gravitational pull.” T-Bone, anything as dense as Traber is going to pull other bodies into its orbit, especially spheres.

  4. It’s obvious the wimgo guy reads your site and is afraid of losing his alpha-dog internet guy status with the ladies he pays to hang around him and wear green body suits. Green with envy, I’d say.
    The guy in the first pic is a rock-n-roll clown… and he likes cocaine.

  5. I think the green bodysuits were supposed to fit more like the tie-dyed bodysuit in the first picture. Sunglasses man must have been so disappointed.

  6. i heard there was a wedding going on at one of the churches off of main street and no one going to or in the wedding had a place to park because of the festival.

  7. I can’t think of a better way to lead into this great NMF roundup than featuring a photo of a guy wearing a tie-dyed “onesie!”
