Yesterday early morning around this time (after 6am) I started a Star Trek film score marathon listening to all 11 Star Trek scores in a row. All though I didn't finish it last night and stopped half way through Star Trek Insurrection since I went to bed early last night. I've continued it and I'm almost done with Star Trek Insurrection.
Of course when I started this marathon I started off with Star Trek The Motion Picture (just the main body of the score). Giacchino's Star Trek score will be the last one to listen to.
I've never done this before I mean have a marathon listening to all complete scores. It's actually been a cool experience at least for myself since as you guys know I love ALL the Star Trek film scores.
It definitely has been difficult for that. November 13th we start our 5th year and unfortunately won't be able to be together for it. However, I'll be bringing her here for Christmas and New Years. She'll have to fly back after that but hopefully shortly after that point I can finally bring her back for good.
I went up to Washington State where at the time my friend Joe was living with his at the time wife (now divorced). Anyways, we went to Lincoln City, Oregon and a day or so later after we got back, we went up to Mt. Saint Helens.
This first pic was in Lincoln City and it was my first time on a beach. I visited them in February...while it was cold I had fun both in Lincoln City and up at Mt. Saint Helens.
Here are some pics from Mt. Saint Helens.
This last pic from Mt. Saint Helens is cool. We were driving back to my friends place when my friends wife noticed this little water fall on the side of the road.
This last one I went back up to Washington state for the last time (haven't been back since) in 2008. We went clamming, while I didn't catch anything I caught this beautiful sunset picture. This is by far my favorite picture.
For me this day will be a second day that will be forever burned into my memory. I can't believe it's been 11 years that day, time sure does go by fast.
I still remember that day pretty well. I was in bed and slowly had just started waking up. My friend Chris and Sam were living with my parents and I at the time. Chris came blasting into my room, startling me a bit and told me to get my ass out of bed and hurry into the living room that something was happening in New York. So I quickly sprang out of bed and rushed into the living room with him.
That's when I saw the north tower of the World Trade Center burning. Of course reports were first still coming in of possibly a plane hitting it or a small plane people weren't quite sure but as more information came through that it was most likely a passenger airline. Then Sam, Chris, my mom and I watched live as the second plane hit the south tower of The World Trade Center. We were all struck with disbelief and I think Chris, Sam and I blurted out, "What the hell!?!?!?!??!". Then the rest as we know what happened. We were pissed off the rest of the day as we could not believe that the unthinkable happened to the United States.
I did not live very far from McCarren Airport there in Vegas. I was so used to hearing planes taking off and landing there as it was a sound I really enjoyed for some reason. I was also used to seeing the line of planes landing at the airport at night. The rest of that week, especially the next day it was extremely eerie not to hear any planes taking off or landing, or seeing the line of planes landing at night or planes in general flying over head in the skies.
We should always remember this day. Especially those brave Fire Fighters and Police Officers who gave their lives trying to save others from both World Trade Center buildings. We should also remember those who died during the collapse of those buildings. We should also remember those who died when the two planes struck the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and those who died trying to take back United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania.
I know this isn't related to this but the first day that I hinted about earlier that will forever be burned into my memory was the day that Pepcon blew up there in Vegas. It was a plant that made rocket fuel for the Space Shuttle. Miraculously only one person died in that explosion, it was someone who helped a fellow employee get out of there. It also took with it a marshmallow factory that was next door. This particular day had a traumatic effect on me for an extremely long time. It made me afraid of loud noises, such as thunder and strangely enough the garbage truck as it came and picked up trash the usual day every week.
Anyways...regarding this day 11 years ago we should NEVER forget it.
Edit: I have to agree with Steef, enough of the mudslinging back and forth to each other. This isn't about one member, just drop that all ready damn.
I fully expect landlines to die out in the near future. They really offer nothing that a cell phone doesn't.
I don't think all land lines will die out. Nearly all of your government and companies use land lines. Plus you got those people in rural areas that can't get DSL or some sort of high speed internet and only can have dial up.
