Well, I was going to write about my New York City trip...
... best made plans, eh?
I spent several hours piecing this video together... The tattoo on my left arm reads "Johnny." It's short for Johnny Ipacs. Johnny also has my name hidden on his body tattooed in large print as well! (Obviously, you don't arbitrarily get a tattoo of someone's name on your body without there being a serious connection.) Johnny and I share a total of three unique tattoos.
Johnny and I celebrated five years together as a couple in September of 2002 -- but 2002 was a very bad year for us -- by 15 February 2003 I had moved to Boston, Massachusetts due to a number of relationship issues. Johnny and I reconciled our differences and became very close friends in 2004 -- but his health began to fail shortly thereafter.
Over the past two years, Johnny's health has been failing quite rapidly. He's been in hospital more than not lately, with a myriad of conditions.
I created this, my longest video ever, to rally his friends to come and support him while we still can. John was taken to Strong Memorial hospital this past weekend and the prognosis isn't very good. If you know John, please stop by and say hello or say a prayer.
Some of you might recognize some of these photos, people or places in this video. Consider yourself lucky to have been a part of our lives -- I hope you appreciate the video.
Please note: This video contains brief male nudity in an artistic form (there is no sex nor sexual acts.) This is a dedication video, if you think you will be offended by seeing a flaccid penis or two, simply don't bother watching this video please. Thanks for your understanding in this special circumstance. Those who know Johnny also know that this collage speaks reams of how he lives his life, and this is exactly the way he would want to be thought of.
