Folks, allow me to introduce you to a friend of mine.

Nathan Johnson is a multi-talented 21-year-old who leads a very interesting life. First and foremost, he is in a band. A very, very good band called The Sailor Sequence. Although I tried playing an instrument in my grade school days, I was always last chair trumpet because of my refusal to practice and my increased disdain for the instrument. As such, I’m very impressed by people who are born with musical talent and have the discipline to stick with it. Nathan is one of those guys who has a deep-rooted passion for music. Check out the song “Find Yourself” on the band’s myspace page.
Nathan is also a very talented graphic designer, which is how I met him. He is currently a designer at Premier Studios, where I work with him and Robbie. Nathan has an eye for design that I would have killed for at his age. Heck, I might just kill him for it anyway.
He’s also a blogger, and though his site is pretty new, I can tell he’s excited about it. Or at least designing it.
Finally, he’s a funny guy, and he regularly says things that crack me up. So much so, in fact, that I’ve been keeping a list of things he says since March of last year. Today, I want to share it with you.
Behold: This Is Nathan Johnson. A collection of some of Nathan’s finer quotes. 89 of them so far. The list is ever-growing, and will be updated as regularly as Nathan sees fit to grace us with another Nathanism. And just so you can get a better idea of what it’s like to work with Nathan, check out this post on Robbie’s blog. Nathan is like that all the time.
The site was built by Robbie in a matter of hours, and then the real hard work (entering all the quotes) was done by yours truly. It’s the first joint venture between two creative supermen, combining our powers (mostly) for good.
So now you know Nathan Johnson. Some of the things he says might only be funny if you actually know him, but I have a feeling that a lot of what he has to say is pretty universal.
