    It's just fucking unbelievable.

    We really have no idea what it was like...

    Watching it... nicely done... I bet Tony is found right at the end.

    Pretty well as I have pictured it in my dreams (nightmares?)... out of control.

    Makes you realize that 99.999% of what we do is because of rote. Anything out of the ordinary, and we are fucked.

    On that note, my toilet is plugged, and I am now shitting on the carpet, because I don't know what to do.

    was just coming here to post the same thing.....

    its unreal

    it really puts the whole thing in perspective in regards to what happened that day to the people around there.

    i'm speechless
  5. Is it commercial free?

    This question does matter.

    From the Ministry of otherwise, I am curious as to where the sponsor's money is going to, if it's going to a charity no problem. But I haven't heard anything along those lines.

    i havn't noticed a commercial yet... a few tidbits here and there saying its being presented by Nextel, but thats been it

    (missed the first hour though)

    Yeah, it's commercial free. They tried to keep this as non-controversial as possible.

    Once CBS announced this, everyone was like "Oh, they're trying to cash in on tragedy" so they worked hard to not make it seem like that.

    :( <------------ Missed the first hour too

    laura did you finish your essay??

  9. Good. It would be in extremely bad taste if you could see, this program brought to you by McDonalds. The last thing I would want to see would be someone advancing their own business on the back of a couple of thousand dead people. I was very skeptical about watching this, I am now sorry I missed it.

    right at the beginning of the show they were showing the footage of the crew that was in the lobby....there was a load *thunk* followed by a *thunk-thunk* and somebody off camera asked "what's that?" and you hear somebody answer "somebody jumped"

    *shudder* :(

    Exactly my sentiments... I feel as though it happened just now for the first time....

    Very intense

    We spoke about this show in my Role of the Producer class last thursday. The reactions about it ranged from one end of the spectrum to the other.

    Some that had lost family were disgusted by it, and protested it's realease. Others were anticipating it. A weird mix of emotions in that classroom.

    Bottom line, we have never experienced any of this before, and nobody knows how to deal with it.

    For example, two beams of ligiht will shine into the nights sky for 32 days.

    I found it surreal to see the Reverend just moments before his death, standing in the foyer, praying all alone. The sound of falling bodies made my stomach turn, and I was nearly brought to tears a couple times, which surprised me.

    Metal Morphosis and I were in the mezzanine a couple years ago and on the 80-something floor of the north tower. It was beyond strange to see it like that. I still have my ticket...

    6 months tomorrow. Seems longer...

    Did anyone happen to tape it? It would MUCH appreciated if I could borrow it please.

    I've been reading so much and I wanted to catch this.

    Same. Mine's in my scrapbook. I've been up there a few times and I couldn't imagine what it was like for those people just being there on a regular day. It's so sad...

    My ex bf was running away from tower 1 with a friend holding hands when she was mashed by a jumper.

    One minute they were holding hands, the next, she was virtually flattened.

    He went to a bar a couple of blocks away and started drinking.

    Took me 5 days to get a hold of him, we thought he was dead.

    Video footage of the jumpers the day it happened was sickening. The worst part thinking how bad was it up there to do a nosedive from 80 fucking floors. We'll never know. :(

    That was the most amazing documentary ever.

    I am glad they decided to show it.

    Some images that are still with me this morning:

    *When the people walked out of the elevator about 50 minutes after the plane hit. They had no idea what was going on....I wonder how many others died trapped in elevators and not knowing what had happened.

    *How the lobby looked when they first arrived...the damage was incredible - even like 80 floors below the impact. It took huge balls to just even walk in there - never mind climbing up the steps.

    *All the sounds.....when the plane hit - the jumpers - the collapse. Frightening shit.

    *When the camera dude got tackled by the fireman underneath the car when they were running from the collapse of tower 1. It looked like a nuke had hit just behind them - crazy shit.

    RIP for all who died on 9/11.
