Before Barry forced him to walk the plank with an iPod full of Bruce Springsteen super glued to his ears, Osama bin Laden was pretty excited to delay an Amtrak train or something, on 9/11/11. But Osama bin Laden is dead now, or so we have been led to believe, so why is he still allowed to plan terrorist attacks? This is what he has been doing, according to some theater in Boise, Idaho, which has dared to break terrorist tradition by advertising an attack before it is scheduled to occur. Apparently, Boise is going to celebrate the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with something called “EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY.” Did someone forget to tell Boise that nothing is supposed to happen in the sky, on 9/11? Or is this just something unrelated that has been blown out of proportion by an idiot with a cell phone camera?
Some person at this concert venue in Boise is in big trouble, for not realizing that it would be “controversial” to book a band called “Explosions in the Sky” on the anniversary of actual explosions happening in the sky.
A theater marquee for a poorly timed concert is drawing attention because it advertises “Explosions in the Sky” on “Sept. 11.”
The sign in Boise, Idaho, is promoting a concert by the group Explosions in the Sky, which has the unfortunate timing of taking place on the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks that killed more than 2,700 people at the World Trade Center.
Experts say thousands of New Yorkers still suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder from the twin airplane explosions that could be seen from miles away on that clear morning.
The band has had to contend with 9/11-related questions before.
They released their second album in late August 2001, just before the attacks, called Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever.
The album’s artwork features a plane shining a light on an angel, and includes a liner note that reads “this plane will crash tomorrow.”
A few months later, guitarist Michael James was detained at an airport because his guitar case had a sticker with the same message.
Seriously, what is with this band and 9/11? Did they plan it or something? Actually, a band with the word “Explosions” in it is always extremely inappropriate in America, where it is 9/11 all the time. Nevermind that there are explosions happening in the sky and on the ground pretty much every single day of the year, all around the planet. This band is some sort of Texas 9/11 conspiracy, and Boise should probably cancel this concert and replace it with a Charlie Sheen show, because of Patriotism. [NBC]
