Happy BBQ & Fireworks Weekend!

Happy Fourth O' July Weekend! These colors DO run, but only if you forget set your washing machine on the delicates cycle.

Alright people, you know the drill. Share your plans for the holiday weekend in this blog thread. Non-US citizens, share your plans anyway because you deserve to set off explosives just like the rest of us. And speaking of fireworks, here's an updated article from the past that might help get you in the mood for blowing things up:

The Underappreciated Art of Firecracker Labels!

I've just added an all-new third page of firecracker labels to the piece, so be sure to check it out and submit any labels of your own that you happen to photograph before they get blown to bits!

Well, I live in Canada, and we had a pretty nice display of fireworks back on the 1st (Canada Day), compliments of the local fire brigade.

Something about that seems wrong, they should really just get someone else to do the fireworks, so they are free to put out any fires that are certain to happen because of the hillbillies around here.

As for my own plans, I'll probably just stay inside and watch Das Boot. It's been raining really hard the past few days, and today is no exception. Oh well, I love that movie! :D

I'm also a Canadian, but I was too busy getting my ass kicked at Samurai Shodown to go out and enjoy the fireworks. For the best, really. Today, I plan to honor my southern neighbors with a full-series Contra marathon. What's more American than blowing shit up with big guns while smoking a cigar?

Well, half of the people I would've spent the 4th with are chumps; they're off in France for the month. I think they'll get to celebrate France Day or La Dia De Francia or whatever they get over there. =P

Anyway, we here in Maine are shut in due to rain (as it's been for the past 3 weeks or so), so our plans involve the red, white, and blue in the form of food colors. Hot dogs, chips, strawberry ice cream, and blueberry pie. No grill because it's raining and the Francebound half of the family are namby-pamby vegetarians.

I set off a few awesome roman-candles, including a truly amazing one called the "Dragon Eyes". It has a cool Dragon on the label, I'll send you a pic sometime tonight or tomorrow.

I had a few with the wife and watched "Shameless". But I'm Canadian as well so I saw some good fireworks in Vic on the 1st over the harbor.

Had a fun fourth with the family. Swam in the pool, had bbq, watched fireworks in town with a nice little picnic. Then set my own off in the backyard before enjoying some DS. Nice holiday.

I'm going to time travel to the future for my 4th of July and hang out on the internet

Spent the whole damn weekend redisgning a magazine. We don't pay too much attention to this holiday in Mexico, though...
