I uploaded this as DVD to the torrent site DimeADozen back in 2010 or so. I thought I would finally make it available again. This is the information I included at the time below:
1. NBC 4 Police Press Conference 11:00 AM Dec. 9
2. ABC 6 12:00 PM News Dec. 9 (about the gunman)
3. NBC 4 11:00 PM Dec. 9
4. ABC 6 11:00 PM Dec. 9 (very short clip)
5. CNN Headline News
(very short clip)
6. NBC 4 12:00 PM Dec. 10
7. CBS 10TV 11:00 PM Dec. 10
8. ABC 6 11:00 PM Dec. 10
9. Video from the Alrosa Dec. 11
I did not go to the Damageplan show where Dimebag Darrell, Nathan Bray, Erin Halk, and Jeff Thompson were murdered. I almost went with a friend for his birthday, but thankfully he backed out to spend time with his family. I recorded local news clips with my miniDV camcorder connected to my TV. (There is one very brief clip from CNN; everything else is local news.) This means the video was recorded onto the miniDV tape from the TV. (I was not filming the TV screen.) The quality is pretty good for standard definition. I did not own a DVR at the time, so several of these clips have small cuts in them. At one point I had switched channels during one story included to see if another news station had something more relevant. (They did not.) I've tried to edit out everything that wasn't related to the story.
Please note that very little is said about Jeff "Mayhem" Thompson. Most of the focus, when talking about the victims, is on Dimebag, Nathan Bray and Erin Halk. This is probably because Dimebag was the celebrity and the other two were local residents. Also note that there's a really stupid comment from the reporter at the end of chapter 2. Consider yourself warned.
The last chapter is just footage I shot when I went to the Alrosa Villa three days after it happened. I just wanted to take some shots of the little memorials people had left behind. I remember there was a young man, who had attended the show, that was just hanging around by himself, still in disbelief. I felt really bad for him. I talked to him for a little bit.
I know this is quite an odd thing to distribute, but someone that I have become close friends with since this happened, who attended the show with his brother, encouraged me to seed this.
