Born into a Mormon family in Plano, Texas Nov. 14 1986, Josh Carmona spent his early years in Princeton, Texas. He has two younger brothers and an older sister.
June 6th 2005, Josh joined the United States Marine Corps and after getting to recruit training in San Diego Recruit Training Depot, San Diego, California, he instantly realized that he made made a grave and rather foolish error, but it was too late. He was promoted to Private First Class and transferred to Camp Pendleton after boot camp and to attend Marine Combat Training. After running up and down the California mountainside pretending to stab terrorists he was transferred to Fort Meade, Maryland to attend the Defense Information School (DINFOS) to learn the sacred art of military journalism. During his 10 month tenure in Maryland he cleared his mind of racist and Mormon brainwashing and started partying with Satanists at the Sidebar Tavern in West Baltimore. During his time in journalism school, he pissed off his superiors and was sent to Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow, Calif., where he, "would never get anyone killed." Barstow, California was an unusually good fit for the 20-year-old Lance Corporal. He was able to move about freely, under the guise of writing a story and caused much mischief which eventually he was punished for under Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
After leaving the military June 5th 2009, Josh crashed at his friend Nathan P's house aboard the former Mexican, currently Thai restaurant on N. Cedar and Hickory. In August they moved to Panhandle Street and smoked herb religiously. In Nov. 2009, Josh launched Calm Magazine, which promptly folded 3 months later. Josh currently lives at 1011 Panhandle and loves to buy booze at the Howdy Doody and print Zines.
