Flandskate Anthologies

Never the types to take ourselves too seriously…

So Ridiculous... I thought that at some point, we were going to put together a shoot because our time as roomies is coming to a close very soon… and well - the day for that shoot is here! MAJOR DISCLAIMER: Although kinda fun and silly in a million and one ways – we, the current flandskaters - are both laughing at ourselves on the inside and very embarrassed to have these photos posted in any public way… We do realize that this can work against us in many ways: Future job interviews, large blow-up sized reprints on our front door, and the internet vehicle in general, just to name a few… but we are never the types to take ourselves too seriously... but, even with that - please… be kind…we would really love that... thanks!

Please don’t take us too seriously in this shoot… we hope that, at the very least, you laugh at us and want a photoshoot just like this one for you! (well kinda like this one…) *wink wink* First: Behind the scenes… Enjoy!











Second: The Olin Mills Portrait Studio dedication - Behind those scenes - the original shots...





Finally: The Olin Mills Portrait Studio dedication – the finished vision of assistant photographer Mark Marcelo… You just gotta love these…




I swear... I'm still laughing at these as I review the post.. sooooo embarrassing and soooo ridiculous.... I really can't stop laughin at the picture just before the last pic/album cover... The Maartes... the all black background, no belts, and hella drama faces... if you know us - you know this totally isn't us - kinda - well you know what I mean... just way too hilarious...

These guys (and David Reyes, not pictured here, moved to Vallejo in April 07) have been my roomies for the past 2 years and really have been the best set of folks to live with that I could have asked for.. the fact that I will be moving in just under 3 months and initiating the final break-up of the legendary old-people household is a bit sad for me… I will have to say that I will look back on these past two years with a great fondness… the best of great memories, laughs, and support, these guys are yet another one of those blessings in my life that I am really grateful for… no matter how embarrassing we are….
