Who Are Those Guys?

It is probably high time for me to introduce this rag-tag assortment of amateur commentators. So here goes:

e.gage, better known as Bryan, is a law student at the University of Idaho. His specialty is injecting some random humor into the blog, as well as sharing some wry commentary on the issues of the day. Check out his weblog, and the great pictures on his photo blog.

Maine Man, Brent, is a manufacturing engineer currently working at a major manufacturer in New England. He is responsible for the lean manufacturing posts, and offers commentary on everything.

Matt is our man in D.C., and recently graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in business information systems. He is spending his first summer as a free man as a Congressional intern, and will be blogging about it on his own weblog.

Jason, better known to us as Jamo (that label will never die), also recently graduated from the University of Utah, with a degree in finance. Right now, he is contemplating women, but he is also considering a future in law school, probably depending somewhat on what Brian tells him about the law school experience. He also runs the Jamoblog.

The Niem, Adam, is our movie and pop culture guru. He usually blogs to vent - but I'm hoping to see more regular posting from him, both here and on his own weblog. He vastly underestimates his writing ability.

Nathan has a masters in bioengineering and is currently working at a small research and development firm. Reading a cool science story? Nate probably found it. He also offers some interesting insights into the human condition.

Tyler. Well, that's me. I can wax either narcissistic or self-deprecating, but always I'm the one using too many words. I am the political junkie of the group, and am heavy on opinions but light on knowledge. I am a chemical engineer with an MBA working for a manufacturing business here in Salt Lake City. I like Winston Churchill, and I run The Pacific Slope.

So who are we? Well, our opinions and political philosophies run from libertarian to downright conservative, both socially and politically.

We have the following in common - we are all members of the LDS Church, and we have all crossed paths at some point in Salt Lake City through fraternities and friends.

And we all thought it would be fun to start a weblog, and see where it went.

I'm the guy in the middle (4th in line) in the blue shirt.

At 10:51 AM, Blogger j.m. said...

I'm the one wearing contacts.

At 11:41 AM, Blogger Tyler said...

And as much as I want to lay claim to Steve McQueen, I'm the only guy still wearing a tie.

At 11:52 AM, Blogger Tyler said...

Or am I Yul Brinner?

At 12:40 PM, Blogger j.m. said...

Not only am I the guy in contacts... I'm also the guy with s#*t all over his boots. Lousy horses. Transportation sure has come a long way! Now instead of crap on my boots, I have crap in my lungs and am developing a case of asthma due to pollution!

But at least my shoes are clean.

That crap in your lungs has to be cancer. But,...it will probably go away once you get married.

At 4:18 PM, Blogger j.m. said...

When... if...

If the cancer doesn't kill me first, I'm sure marriage will.

At 4:19 PM, Blogger Tyler Farrer said...

I still have the position open as my 'Avenging Angel'.

At 4:20 PM, Blogger Tyler Farrer said...

...or 'Destroying Angel', or what you will.

At 4:20 PM, Blogger j.m. said...

"Destroying Angel." And I will be taking you up on that in the afterlife. If it turns out that I can't hook-it-up down here, I want my revenge in the life to come.

At 1:23 PM, Blogger The Niem said...

Oohh! Whic guy do I get to be? I think I'd like to claim the front guy with the giant forehead, because I also have a giant forehead. However, he's probably the super-cool leader-type and I'm not sure the rest of you will accept that. In fact, if there were a vote I supect I would be marked as the #2 guy (from the left)... you know the dorky-looking one.

This is the same phenomenon that occurs when we play the "Which Star Wars Character Would You Be? Game." I always end up being C-3PO.
