My Cousin...

... Designs high-end audio speakers for a living. He shreds. Check out this article about him in the Indianpolis Star.

I have another cousin whose husband used to work for Todd McFarlane, creator of "Spawn," maker of killer toys, and onetime artist on "Spider-Man." Her and her husband are now very involved in childcare and issues regarding adoption, etc. They rule.

My brother is a tattoo artist. Come to think of it, my family is sort of awesome.
