Thanks for some great music. Receive an auspicious rebirth, friend.

This totally sucks. The Velvet Underground's first album was the sound track of my teenage years. Thanks for the tunes, Lou!

that lightnings garland, while on earth below, the peacocks dance with joy as
showers of rain, falling gently, approach.

I'll keep Lou in my dedications.

Ouch. My past is disappearing fast.

May he be released from all suffering -- or, failing that, have an auspicious rebirth.

On a side note, I didn't realize that HH is so tall. Has he got hops?
