A morbid fascination since my youth

It all started with this album my father bought when I was but a wee child.

There it is.  The crash of the Hindenburg, the tragic event that coined the phrase “oh, the humanity!”  Yes, that one.

I can remember looking at this album cover as a child and imagining what it must be like to see something like this happen.  I was captivated by an exploding airship.  How many people were on board?  How many died?

The foundations for a life of gothic and morbid imaginings started because of Led Zeppelin and their iconic album cover.

Thanks guys.

If you haven’t ever seen the actual footage of the crash, I present to you the final flight of the Hindenburg.
