THE HALL OF THE DEAD

The following pictures are that of graves I have visited of people who have influenced me the most at one point or another. This was a list I had begun many, many eons ago when I was a young lad filled with wonder and hope for life. At the time, all of my friend's role models were current rock stars, sports figures, or actors, and I quickly realized that everyone I wanted to idolize and worship had died long before I was even a sparkle in my father's eye. This list continues to grow with each passing moon as I am awakened to new ideas and perspectives into the minds of my fellow mankind. If you have someone to add to my list that you think will enlighten or corrupt me, then feel free to drop me an e-mail. Also check out www.findagrave.com to find the location of your favorite famous or infamous idol's corpse, they might be closer then you think.  I have a couple of short road trips planned to see some of my fallen brethren, so hopefully if the winds are right and the money is there I will be able to add some more bodies to this page.
