Independence Day 2011

With the 4th of July coming round the corner again, I realised that I’d neglected to recap the stunning pyro displays witnessed last year. It was AMAZING.

Of course I had to rope in Jesca for the sillies. XDD

The group of us headed to the Pasadena Rose Bowl at first:

I have to mention that I’m a total sucker for arm tattoos.

Drink from one of our kind car neighbours!

Just in case you don’t know how much of a sucker I am for arm drawings. Also, this guy apparently owned a restaurant. The name and address was gone with one of the guys we traveled with though.

The Rose Bowl proved boring, since it was family-oriented, and we were looking for something a little more active, so we headed down to Long Beach:

And there it was, the most beautiful display of pyrotechnics I’d ever seen.

I’m still unsure regarding patriotism (leering into nationalistic pride), since it seems to lead to segregation from what I’ve felt, but then this seems to be a discussion I’ve yet to flesh out within my mind. A good celebration is still a good celebration though!

Also, I think The Game is in the plans for this year’s celebration. A little bit excites!

[edit] re: pride:: George Carlin seems to be my mind’s amplifier, in a charmingly coarse, in-your-face kinda way.
