Allow me to introduce my crew:
The Santino — Santino grew up in Madrid and is a documentary film maker, currently working for a company named Flannel, producing short spiritual vignettes called Noomas. Terribly talented, I try to stick with this kid…you know, for the whole popular-by-association thing. Santino Stoner, remember that one.
The Seth — Currently en route to join his compatriots at Flannel, Seth is a graphic designer and budding film maker who moved back to small-town Ohio to help out with his family for awhile. This guy is a rock, and constantly is on call for me whenever I have one of my freak-out-what-am-I-doing-with-my-life moments.
The Nikos — Our Greek cultural liaison, Nik is the senior planner for the Grand Rapids transit system. This kid is versed in all sorts of political movements and philosophies, and is a good coffee shop companion. Nik is one of those good-hearted guys that’ll buy you a drink and have a chat whenever you happen by, which is always a pleasant perk.
The Billy — Baseball phenom, Nik and Sonny have known Billy longer than I have, but with his dad’s military service, Bill and I sort of share a bond that makes us vibe pretty well. I enjoy talking with this guy a lot.
Rockin good chums. Of course my Army gig keeps me away from the gang for most of the year, I get to visit every once in a while.
The Josh — Here is your humble blogger. I forgo style and panache for bluntness and boring clothing.
