I still wish that one Land Before Time fan fic where some time traveler took the dinosaur cast millions of years into the future for the sole purpose of witnessing 9/11 where Ducky and Chomper confessed their love for each other was still on the Internet, either of its original format or its sporking.

Oh well.


The memes are great, but I still get chills watching the footage. It was the day of innocence lost but I was too confused to understand exactly why. My best friend was never the same after that day, and it was as if the sun was never as bright as it was the day before. And the night before, too, my school had an ice cream social and everyone was just having a good time. It was a surreal experience.

Yeah I'm going to need a copy of this asap

The weather today is almost exactly the same as it was that day, weird. I watched this for the first time last year. I think the staircase was in the same building as the Borders bookstore but I'm not sure.


Good thing I'm lazy and decided to reschedule an AM appointment after 2 PM so I could lunch in Battery Park City. Which never happened.

I can't find it, but I remember seeing footage from a Brooklyn guy that caught both the planes crashing, with sound a year or two ago. I of course can't find it now, but it was the first time I'd ever hear the crash with actual sound. It's the most jarring and surreal thing. All the footage I'd seen prior was just the planes crashing from sky cams, or one which would catch plane sounds, and a sliver of the plane colliding. Most people I've talked to haven't really heard the sound either; just silent footage.

This is the next closest thing I could find, but I'll have to look for Brooklyn guys video when I get home.

The Naudet brothers documentary has video/audio of the first plane but what has more of an impact is the footage of them inside the lobby and the sounds of the bodies hitting an awning and sidewalk, with the FDNY chaplain who was killed by a falling body.

Is that the one where he's on the rooftop, and when the second plane hit within seconds the soundwaves reach him and he mutters, "Jesus"? I think that was in a compilation video, but I can't recall which one.

I was going to post the Howard Stern 9/11 video, but it seems that Howie and his team of goons had it taken down once again. It's a shame, I feel like the anger and confusion that everyone in Howard's studio displayed was reflective of how people felt at the time.

EDIT: found it after a more thorough search. It really is worth at least skimming through it. Start at 28 mins in.

Having seen Russia's WW2 child-targeted propaganda this last decade, and its results, I sympathize with the kid. He couldn't have helped copying the adults, because that's what he was taught to do as a good kid, and he wanted to be a good kid. Glad to see he turned out ok.

I think it was. I also distinctly remember after the second plane hit him going, "this ain't no accident. We're going into Iraq now aren't we?"

I took back my feels rating 'cause I've found the video (well, audio).

Oh damn, 6+ video versions that I had in my liked videos playlist were taken down, so I assumed they were all taken down... Thanks for pretty much finding what I couldn't.
