Kickin' it with Evidence Explained and Nine Inch Nails

I love electronic music almost as much as I love genealogy. When I was working toward certification, I had created flashcards for the first two chapters of Evidence Explained so that I could have those theories and definitions down. They are timeless and should be studied to have a solid genealogical education. Even now as I write this blog post, I flipped through the first two chapters and I had many "whoa" moments because lately, I have been bypassing the first two chapters to get to the citation portions for reports and writing. When you read it, ponder it, digest it and then read it again, you have many moments where it totally makes sense and that in itself, is a really satisfying feeling.

Couple reading these two chapters with the Nine Inch Nails 2011 Creative Commons upload "Ghosts" and you will have a super chill session to learn. Trent Reznor is the reason I even got through those teen years and now his sound is ushering me through the genealogical mindset portion of my life. Also, things get real in Ghosts IV.
