Change - 2011-09-11 This is the part I never forget.
Frabo - 2011-09-11 Somewhere during this I went numb. Stayed that way for days.
I can understand some backlash against the "Never Forget!" crowd etc, but to say that day didn't move me like no other day would be a lie.
Ursa_minor - 2011-09-11 Some of these shots are so vividly post-apocalyptic. The pause three mintutes in; you know the cameraman realized just then he was walking into something otherworldly. 18:29, over and over. Watch the tree.
Frabo - 2011-09-11 That 3 minutes of blackness that follows. COUGH HACK "Boy that was close" COUGH HACK "I found a pole" COUGH HACK and finally an old guy still cracking a joke. fuck.
Ursa_minor - 2011-09-11 It's all you can do to stay human in the face of something like that. That dude was decidedly still human.
dairyqueenlatifah - 2011-09-11 I am not watching this. It was depressing enough when it was happening. It's depressing enough that it's been ten freaking years.
That said, I probably will never forget 9/11 and how seeing those towers fall live on tv made me feel. At the same time, however, I think a lot of stupidity followed in the response to this and is ongoing still.
hammsangwich - 2011-09-11 Holy fuck, that's some pretty hi-def video for 2001. I remember. I was eating breakfast and had no idea what was going on. I saw the second plane hit and was just baffled. Obviously all my classes were canceled for the day.
jangbones - 2011-09-11 HD was becoming standard at the broadcast level, but it had not gotten to the consumer level nearly as much. So you'd shoot a bunch of beautiful HD footage then down-convert it to shitty SD.
This looks like a digibeta cam.
