...the onslaught is under way. Right now I can ignore most 9/11 specials but the day can't be far off when I'll have to stop watching, listening to or reading any medium if I want to avoid the frenzy. I think SteveG has the right idea - pull the plug on the teev (and stick to leisure mags for entertainment?).<br><br>
I don't think watching some of them are too bad - some are probably going to be very well done. It's the over-commercialization that I can't stand. I've already gotten e-mails offering a U.S. Flag with the WTC picture in the blue area covering some of the stars. Also got mail offering mini-statues of the WTC before & a statue of the firefighters with the flag. <br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

I rarely watch TV, so this topic doesn't mean that much to me. In fact, I haven't even read all of this thread ...<br><br>BUT, I made my own Quicktime movie tribute to the 9/11 disaster a while ago. If anyone wants a little MORE (lol) of this stuff I've got it here<br><br>I tried my best to be artistic, so don't laugh.<br><br>
Thanks. Glad to hear you folks say you like it, when this thread is about how we're all sick of this stuff <br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>how did you get the photos to come out so clear? Mine always look jaggy/blurry.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Really? How are you making yours? If you use something like iMovie that will be digital video at any point that is not good. If it is a true Quicktime slideshow each photo in the movie should look identical to the still, because thats all it is.<br><br>I like LiveSlideshow from Totally Hip the best. It costs a little bit but it really has the nice functions like letting you determine how long each slide is viewed and how long the transition effects last, text and music per slide, etc.<br><br>However, iPhoto's Quicktime export produces just as sharp a finish as anything it just doesn't have near as many options.<br><br>
You know, Trog, I had deliberately not watched any footage of 9/11 after taht first horrible couple of days. Those images in your video brought it back. It's well done, but I think you've convinced me that, come 9/11/02, I will stay far far far away from TV, radio, and newspapers.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Yes, I do know what you mean. When I was looking for photos to include in it I came across a few that I just couldn't even bear to put in the movie. <br><br>And although I have been joking around, I understand the topic of this thread; the drama drowning by the media is simply shameless. I don't blame people for avoiding it, because they are either sick of the melodrama (my main reason) or just plain repulsed by the images from that day.... just as long as they (we) don't forget. <br><br><br>
