In fact, I think I'm going to copy and paste your whole comment, giving you credit, on my FB.
Since you HAVEN'T copyrighted it, I'm totally stealing "synthetic victim." Totally.
Great. Now this song is stuck in my head. Thanks. :/
Huh. That's strange. The video even came up on the email notification I received that you had responded. If you go to Youtube you can search "Pride of the Sunshine Marching Band 9/10/11" and it will come up. That's how I found it. :)
I was blessed to be able to go to the University of Florida football game last night (free tickets from a friend). The Pride of the Sunshine Marching Band (the UF band), gave a beautiful tribute at halftime. Video link below. Keep in mind that whoever made this video was on the student side, so all of the formations are upside down in this view. The beginning is hard to hear - Taps in echo - because it's two trumpeters, both facing the skybox side of the field (away from the camera). The bagpipes you hear after that were live; he's also on the far side, a black dot of a person just in front of the front line of white band uniforms. Some of .tThe formations you'll see are "9-11-01," "U S A," an eagle eblem and an outline of the nation - again, all upside down from this camera's view. I cried through the whole thing at the game last night. "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHDq3oSwVlU"
Hear, hear, Harley! I'm a native and lifelong resident. Floridians know what to do and we do it for ourselves. We don't wait for the government. Actually, that reminds me of Joplin, MO. Same thing. They just started helping each other, one board at a time. Self-reliance and taking resposibility for oneself. That's what we're about.
I saw that press conference...or whatever it was....too, and I turned to my husband and said of O, "I know he's talking but all I hear is blah blah blah." Of course, the sound quality was poor for some reason, but I think I would've heard "blah blah blah" regardless.
Wow. Thanks for sharing. As for violating non-disclosure, (a) you no longer work there and (b) nobody really know who you are (unless they start poking around at your IP and all that....) ;)
Which is why I quit using Google. Actually, it was D-Day (June 6) 2+ years ago. Google chose to honor the birthday of Tetris, the video game, in their cute little logo graphics rather than honor the heroes who sacrificed everything not only for OUR freedom but for the freedom of all of Europe and most of the rest of the world, too. Tried Bing, and sure enough, there was a beautiful tribue to D-Day and its heroes. Yes, I know Bing has its problems, too, but I'm choosing the lesser of two evils.
Ack! We posted at basically the same time! How dare you steal my thunder!! ;)
