The Wedding, Forensics, and a Tool

Well I haven't posted in a while...vacation..wedding..honeymoon..

The wedding and honeymoon went very well and I hope to be posting some pictures up soon. Keep in mind that they are clean pictures and nothing from the honeymoon slides will show up on here nor anywhere else on the net. Special Thanks to The Wrider, The Duke of Fullerton, and The Man O' War from Portugal Mario for attending the festivites. The Duke and Dukess had a dance off with the Man O' War!!

I started my Computer / Digital Forensics classes at Cal State Fullerton and i've got to tell you that they are awesome and so far I am really into them. There is so much that I have learned in such a little time. For those that don't know what Computer / Digital Forensics is, it is the study of Computer Crime and once complete I will be a certified Digital Forensics Examiner. It encompasses Law and Computers which are two of my favorite subjects. I'll keep you posted to how its going.

FYI...I love talk radio because you can listening to interesting conversations and never have to say anything back.


Two days before my wedding I went to go see what is probably the best concert I have been to this year...the band....TOOL. The stage set up was all white and very simple. Two songs from their set were Wings for Marie part I. and 10,000 Days (Wings part II). During this set Maynard, the lead singer for the band walked off stage. I didn't know why at first but then I did some reading (once I got home). Tool changed their setlist for this show alone and included Wings parts 1 & 2 which is something they have never played live. Both of the songs refer to his Mother Marie (or Judith Marie). 10,000 days refers to how long she survived with the sickness she had. The reason Maynard walked off stage was because he broke down in tears while singing the songs. Those songs have much more meaning to me now than they did before. The rest of the set was AWESOME! Laser show...video mixing..everything flawless. Tool is a must see band.

Great to have you posting again! I'm glad your honeymoon went well. Can't wait to hear all about it! The wedding was a blast! We had a good time at the reception!

Your class sounds great! I had no idea that's what your studies was going to be in, but wow! I'm pretty jealous now! Good for you!

You are the second person to mention TOOL....Birdman mentioned them in his latest blog, too. Guess I'll be checking them out! Touching recount of the lead singer's mother and him having to walk off the stage.

I've not forgiven you yet for missing my Going Away Festivities...(Guess which finger I'm holding up?!)
