I heard Pink Floyd's 'Goodbye Bluesky' and instantly thought about 9-11. So, this is my tribute to America on that infamous day.

Credit Pink Floyd for the music, with some added effects by me, and the slideshow credit the AP, yahoo, CNN.com, & MSNBC.com. I feel the images and music create morbidly eerie mood. I will not grandstand and claim that this is any tremendous work on my part, but simply a montage of images to a fitting musical work.

The file is 1500KB, so if you have a slow internet connection and hate to wait, then don't bother viewing. As it is I destroyed the quality of the music because of it's mono and compressed.

A musical insight into a tragedy...

Although what you have done is greatly appreciated, I am sure by many, and the message it conveys to those people is strong, I felt that certain images could have been left out. Any image of this tragedy is bone chilling, but I dont feel that pictures of those people who chose to jump out of the buildings is necessary. I knew a few good people in the building on that day, one escaped the rest did not, and seeing those images of the people escaping peril is beyond emotions. Besides it all, it is the best tribute yet - thank you.

Heh...

...yet more images of tragedy and destruction emblazoned on my mind. It was a nice tribute... theese pictures are getting old. What I am waiting to see is the pictures of them rebuilding and going back to how things were....

Unfortunately, it's still pretty much a mess down there at "ground zero". The lack of images is a sad indicator that they have a huge job cleaning up the destruction. When they get anything good or 'uplifting' that they can supply to the media, they do it. But the WTC complex was an immense civil landmark that has been reduced to and enormous pile of concrete, steel, and memories that will not turn into open park or new buildings anytime soon.

Goodbye Blue Sky

um.....that was an incorrect interpretation of the song the song is actually about a kid growing up without a father in post-WWII times. But you get extra points for doing a pink floyd thing.

Pretti fucking Morbid..

Well i never had the chance to see people jump from window but thanks for giving us RFaces Of Death for the upteenth time.. plus the song didn't quite fir the time . It's not ww3 or what not , but maybe you can construe the media to be wall which we all fall behind ..who knows .. nice try..


z3n responds:

Everyone is focusing in on the use of several stark chilling images of people who leaped from the upper floors of the WTC. OThers chose not to include them in their tribute, and I understand the arguments for doing so. I included them because I don't believe in revising history. Selectively ignoring what happened in Manhattan on that day is to hope that it will not be remembered.

I was not attempting to exploit those images, or I would have focused in on them (I saw one movie where the images of the jumpers were blown up). I placed all of the images in as close to chronological order as posible, and I included images of soldiers and people with gas masks because the whole point of this 911 tribute is to convey the emotional change that this country has been affected by. One person who reviewed this movie brought up the point that the song "GoodBye Blue Sky" by Pink Floyd was about a boy who lost his innocence. I think that concept, that emotion could not be more fitting!

Absolute Garbage.

Wow, you can find pictures and put them in flash, one after another. On top of that, you can put text in at the end! OMFG! You are so skilled. NOT! Absolute garbage, I was so kind as to give you a 2 because you went to all the trouble of finding the pictures.
