Behold the tortured face of a man crushed down by the crippling strains of an endless existence...

The horror. The horror.

The tattoo is healing pretty well. It still randomly seizes with pain but that's to be expected after being stabbed thousands of times with a gooped-up needle.

Hubris fo' life, y'all.

Here's some other fun pictures of my nephews' birthday party.

Donaldo, the middle child (and subsequently the most responsible child in the family) and one of the twins, I forget which one.

Joshua here needs ice cream cake to grow strong.

In a world gone mad, one lone baby is the only one who realizes he's being photographed...but why? He's all alone and determined to find out in....Pizzarrazzi 4: Ender's Revenge.
Opening Summer 2007

Stay tuned for the Luis Lopez Show. Fifty straight minutes of Luis being Luis, starring Luis Lopez.

Ah! Well a-day! What evil looks /
Had I from old and young! /
Instead of the cross, the albatross /
About my neck was hung/

I used to have an albatross necklace that fell from my neck while I was running one night. I never found it.

Now, about my neck is an albatross I can never lose. It is tattooed on. I am pleased with it. Now maybe the gods will finally pay me some attention.

It is a bit bigger than I planned on getting, but it is fitting because albatross are huge birds. Also unexpected, when I raise my arms to the heavens the unfortunate bird's wings seem to pull in as if diving towards the earth or sea.

The beak needs to be touched up. It is curved, and albatross beaks are straighter, much like a seagull's and exactly like an albatross'.

I am pleased.

Next up I still need my labyrinth on my back and perhaps the hitchhiker's thumb. I'm not sure where I'll put that. I'm starting to run out of room.

I am pleased.
