That song is awful. Please use this land is your land.
Thank you.

If I was going to do this stunt, I'd sing the song 9.11 times. But I'm lazier than this guy. Also smarter.

Couldn't he just sing 9/11ths of the song and not bore the hell out of people?

PsyLord: Will he be wearing a US flag shirt and bandana while singing it?

Pants and a do-rag. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while he's wearing those bad boys? Forget about it.

Oh, man. If you love Lee Greenwood's rendition of that song (AND I KNOW EVERYONE DOES) you'll love this amateur ten year old singing it EVEN BETTER.

Well there's this:

"Cause-and-effect thinking is critical to human survival, Legare said. So it's natural for people to find logic in supernatural rituals that emphasize repetition and procedural steps. If doing something once has some effect, then repeating it must have a greater effect. For example, if a mechanic says he inspected something five times, the frequency of his actions leads the customer to overestimate the effectiveness of his work."

But then there's also this:

"Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).

Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety."

It only counts if he wears a patriotic costume that goes directly against both the spirit and letter of USC Title 4 Chapter 1 §8: Respect for Flag.
 
2012-09-11 02:52:30 PM  
Best part? Nobody is really going to sit there and count to make sure he 'really' sings that crap 911 times, so he just basically has to sing it a bunch and them GTFO...

Worst part? They're keeping this stupid "We have to sing God Bless America to prove we love America' bullshiat alive. I was hoping it was dying. It's not my national anthem, I'm not standing up for it, I'm not putting my hand on my heart, and I'm not removing my farking hat.

Pray in whatever religion you practice, for everyone, for all on this very sad day of rememberance. Pray for forgiveness, healing, strength to remember, honor and to continue on living for those who are no longer are as a result of this terrible day, no matter what the real true reason or purpose behind 9/11 was.

If your are atheist or otherwise, keep loved ones close to your thoughts and hearts and be kind to your fellow humans.

That is all

Although towards the end, I bet the song would be more like, "gaa blesh deyooess . . . aww, fark it!!"

Probably the only time in recent history that they did anything together. Rest of the time, they are tearing apart America.

Well, at least they're keeping it low scale and classy. No circus atmosphere there...

Can I just say how much I despise this song, or does that make me one of the turrists?
 
2012-09-11 03:12:52 PM  
I don't believe this, but Colorado Public Television aired, and still has available, the documentary "9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out (Link)." I'm just seeing this for the first time, and here are a couple of interesting facts:

1. Hundreds of first responders reported that they heard explosions.

2. People ask me how access to the structure, to plant explosives, could be possible, without anyone noticing. This documentary says that all you need is access to the elevators. I'm sure there is more than one elevator in each of the Twin Towers and Building 7.

This report is full of experts, and the fact that Colorado Public Television is willing to air it means that this is no longer a fringe topic. People are ready, and many are demanding, scientific scrutiny of how, why, and by whom this event came about. Why did NIST exclude the evidence of melting steel? Why did NIST not look at Building 7, which freefell for seven seconds, and wasn't even hit by anything? Why was the debris from 911 shipped out of the country immediately?

Logical minds want to know.

boozehat: Lets assume the song is 3 minutes long.... he'll be singing for almost 48 hours straight.


At which point it would be 9/12 or 9/13.

No, it's actually 3:09 (good estimate there) which means that if he starts now and has to finish before midnight (UTC-8), he's going to have to accomplish each in just under 47 seconds. I can only assume he'll be singing at 4x speed and it will sound roughly like some sort of Chimpmunks album.

Reminds of some kind of Twighlight Zoneishy nightmare. Methinks "Stairway to Heaven" over 900 times at some smoke filled, urine stained Karaoke bar would be more tolerable.
 
2012-09-11 03:15:52 PM  

HotWingConspiracy: About 500 flags will surround the tent where he will sing, and columns of 3,497 solar lights will replicate the Twin Towers at night. The latter figure represents the number of people killed in the terrorist attacks.
The event also will feature an American Indian flutist and actors who play former presidents, Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross. Free apple pie donated by local stores also will be available to the public Monday while supplies last.

And use the ORIGINAL VERSION. The one that contains the verses:

As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.

In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?

That song is construed as being anti-banker, so none of that Commie Woody Guthrie shiat.

The death toll was about the same so, no. The unprovoked and tragic loss of roughly three thousand Americans is not something to forget, no. I knew someone in one of those towers and I remember that day. So, no. I'll never forget. Too bad you have.

Perhaps you'd be happier living in another country.

Well, to be fair, they were black. So whitey doesn't have guilt about them.
