We have found a new friend for Cardboard Jim Traber…

We recently got an email from an Ogle Mole about an interesting item for sell at a some internet auction. And when I say “interesting,” I really mean “best friend for Cardboard Jim Traber.”  Check it out:

The Travels of Cardboard Jim Traber: SoonerCon 20

As Marisa mentioned on Friday, SoonerCon had their annual nerd convention this past weekend.  I call it a nerd convention out of respect, because in all honesty, I can’t think of a better way to describe a convention that’s catered to fans of comic books, science fiction, monsters, Dungeons and Dragons, Lord of the Rings and all those other fun topics that interfere with more desirable things like sex.

I also call it a nerd convention because I’m a professional blogger, and there really aren’t too many conventions I’m allowed to make fun without looking like a hypocrite.  Hell, even making fun of this one is pushing it.  I’ve seen pictures of blogging conferences and they make the crowd at SoonerCon look like the attendees on some Jagermeister MTV Bud Light Party Cruise or something.

But…I haven’t been to a blogging convention yet, so yeah, we decided to wake up Cardboard Jim and take him to Sooner Con.  Just like Regular Jim Traber, Cardboard Jim really enjoys comic books.  Unlike Regular Jim Traber, Cardboard Jim didn’t masturbate to the sex scenes in the Watchmen comic book.

Anyway, check out some travels of Cardboard Jim after the jump.

Ogle Madness: Midwest Region – Lower Bracket

We’re getting a late start this morning, but we have good reason.  You see, I’m currently at the hospital awaiting the arrival of Clark, JrJr.  Patrick apparently started celebrating his arrival early because he sent me an email at 2:30 asking me to finish off this post and get it online.  Don’t ever let me hear you say I’m not dedicated to you readers.  Before Mrs. Matthews kills me, I’m going to throw it to the voting.

Travels of Cardboard Jim Traber: Snuggie Pub Crawl


As you surely know by now, we organized Oklahoma City’s first ever Snuggie Pub Crawl last Saturday night.  The crawl started Edna’s, then crossed the street to the Drunken Fry, and ended at the Speakeasy.  In all, we estimate about 200-300 people cuddled up in the “blanket with sleeves” participated in the event.

At the end of the night “” after we gave away a $1,500 diamond “” we brought out Oklahoma City’s favorite cardboard cutout decided to crash the festivities.  His name is Cardboard Jim Traber.  Check out pictures from his travels after the jump.

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


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.
