The Rogue's Gallery
My life, reduced to a few minutes worth of pixels.
Feeling Society's Pressure, November 2003
Taken the day before Woofcon 3, and the first appearance of the shaved
head. People still haven't decided if I look more like Dr. Evil or a Shao
Lin Kung Fu Monk.
Hanging with giants, February 2004
My current crowd of friends, Will, Matt, me 'n Craig from left to right.
No, I don't normally dress up that much, it was business dress day at work
Snow Day, February 2004
It's not Canada, but sometimes the snow here is still a pain in the ass.
Bro, March 2004
Isn't he so cute? This is the look he usually gives me when I get a bright idea.
Roanoke, April 2004
My home city, from atop Mill Mountain.
Dogwood Blossoms, April 2004
Only Virginia would have a state flower that was actually a tree.

On the other side of Mill Mountain...

Joe Pantoliano's younger brother, April 2004
Finally getting used to this shaved head thing. Even people that didn't think
they'd like it seem to like the new look and I gotta love the savings in hair
care products, too.
Out with the old, in with the new, June 2004
Finally got rid of my '91 Eagle Talon for a much spiffier '03 Hyundai
Tiburon. Depending on if I'm in polite company or not it's either the Dragon
Wagon or the Penis Extension. ;^D
Joe's wedding, June 2004
Alas, my digital camera was not up to indoors photography past a few
feet, so only a few pictures turned out. The wedding was held at the Jefferson
near downtown Roanoke. The reception food was ok, barring the undercooked
meatballs you can see my brother roasting over the candle. The bride and groom
had an awesome "getaway car" rented, but I and my henchman were
able to get the time to give it a proper decorating for their sendoff. I was
the only one who had the nerve to take credit, though, as you can see...
50th Birthday, July 2004
Me dear old mum on her 50th birthday at Mama Maria's in Salem. She's not
drunk, just tired. Honest!
Joe Pantoliano's younger brother, take 2, August 2004
Don't know how much longer I'll keep this look but here's a slightly cheerier
take on the cueball...
Nicole's visit, part one, May 2005
One of my lovely Canadian friends finally visited me for once. It was fun
showing someone around the "stomping grounds" of my youth, including
a trip to the "Blue Hole" I spent many a youthful summer splashing
around in and trying to drown my cousins. Admittedly, I don't know why it wasn't
called the Green Hole instead... the last picture is part of the path back to
my aunt and uncle's home from the swimming hole.
Nicole's visit part 2, May 2005
So that's a "no" on skinnydipping, I take it?
Nicole's visit, part 3, May 2005
From our trip to Dixie Caverns. Toshiba 3300s suck when it comes to indoor
New personal record, July 2005
Finally hit 165 on the benchpress. Yay me. Next stop, 175, if I don't rip
my arms off at the shoulders in the process.
