Yes, I won a golden ticket!
I was there....It was crazy.....It felt historical.

It was a genuinely reverent and heartfelt event. I will definitely never forget it. I got to be a part of pop culture history.

Must have been such a surreal event.

I saw the Paris speech later in the day, had my gut in a knot after hearing her. Until I heard her speak it dawned on me that he was much more down to earth than I think the public ever saw.

Awesome photos by the way

That is pretty cool that you got those tickets Shane since you are such a super fan of MJ. They should of used your drawings you did of him somehow, they were great. I was still thinking till the end that he was not really dead and this was just he start of his world tour, unfortunately he did not pop out in his thriller costume, oh well. Congrats on getting to go though you really did deserve it.

Remember geeking out over MJ and Lucas at CalArts? Good times. I'm really happy you got to go. I was stuck at work and had to download the service later. Seriously, I had the hardest time sitting through it it was so emotional. I totally agree, Brooke's speech was the best. I loved Usher singing "Gone Too Soon" (this is where I kinda lost it). Paris taking the stage pushed me over though and, like yourself, I was sobbing like a baby, albeit in front of my monitor at 4am. What an awesomely touching service! I'm dying to get one of the programs but I'm not sure if the ones on Ebay are legit or not. I guess that doesn't really matter. I have his music. And I think what he gave us in his music is how he would have liked us to remember him.

By the way, when you have a chance, could you fire me off an email? (
I have a quesion regarding a couple of your pieces. Thanks, bud.

Congrats on getting the tickets! I tried with several emails, but no luck:(, so I had to follow on TV instead. You were definitely part of an historical event, that you or anyone else will never forget. I've been to two MJ concerts myself and the second one was his 40th b-day, so that was kinda special too. Got to sing "Happy B-day" for Michael....that's not everyone who can say that:)

Great post underneath too and awesome MJ illustrations!!

Anyway err on abercrombie Outlet the side of caution and choose the abercrombie and fitch larger size. If the abercrombie sale size 20 blouse is too big, but abercrombie & fitch the size 18 is too small, choose abercrombie the larger blouse. This will enable you to have it fitted. A seamstress or tailor abercrombie uk can't do anything with a garment that's too small abercrombie london -- he or she can, however, tailor a garment abercrombie and Fitch Polo that's too big to fit you to a T.Most plus size abercrombie Polos women's clothing will fail to fit one particular part of her body.
