Last night...
Last night, while very sleepy and recently roused, kikibird told me that runstaverun ate half a pound of ground beef. In my mind, I pictured runstaverun savagely tearing into a bloody heap, scooping handfuls out from under the plastic sealing the mass against the foam platter. It took me until Pete and I were walking south along Grand Street this morning for me to realize what she really meant, that he had a big burger. My dream world is a great place, I should get some people to move there.

You can see the two beams of light from my new place. Amazing.

Feeling: hungry hungry
Listening to: runstaverun's gum

That still strikes me as one of the most heart felt and tear jerking displays. If we did nothing (no commercials, no speeches, no nothing) but put up those two lights I would feel it was the greatest symbol of mourning and respect and pride that had ever been shown by this country. It makes me tear up to think about it. It's a strange thing that those two beams of light give me more pride for my country then all the rethoric and warmonger in the world.

However for the record I'd also like to see them build three towers in it's place. Just to say fuck you, we're still here and we're stronger becuase of you.

Make the middle tower the longest one.

Yeah, I too love the tribute. Simple, powerful, effective, not too preachy, fairly damn non-denominational. You drive down any of the Jersey highways towards the city, and the two beams of lights are right in front of you, miles and miles away. It's just damned amazing.

As far as building, I'd like to see the two rebuilt just the way they are, or larger. They were amazing beautiful buildings... Distinctive, well-crafted, and a great landmark. The skyline seems empty without them.

Oh yeah

I think perhaps we shouldn't take this too far. As far as buildings go, the WTC towers were two of the ugliest skyscrapers ever put up. They were distinctive, well-crafted, and tall (which probably qualifies them to be lankmarks), and the skyline seems empty without them. But they were ugly, ugly buildings, and I for one really hope that whatever replaces them are perhaps more "aesthetically pleasing".

But the beams of light are enchanting. I went on a run today along the waterfront, and just stared at the memorial. Very, very fitting.

Re: Oh yeah

Interesting. I've always found them to be the two most distinctive and beautiful buildings in the city. Big mesh, sweeping arches, masterpieces.
