Default July 4th fireworks

Went to a private party in Malibu Colony yesterday. 2 houses down from where Jim Carrey lives (saw him few times there.) They had the best ******* fireworks I've ever seen! House is RIGHT on the beach - 20ft from water and fireworks were shot from a barge about quarter mile away in the ocean. Sorry for sideways video, I'll work on fixing that

This is from NYC last night - 45,000 shells shot from multiple barges.


And the finale

I've never understood the appeal of fireworks displays. Sure I love explosions and loud noises as much as the next guy, but after you have seen one, you have pretty much seen them all.

Kitty shirt is ******* awesome though.

Oooo pretty!

I made friends with a pyrotechnician while I was working at HF. Now I prefer homemade flash powder. Did some bad things this 4th, now its time to experiment with diesel.

I guess maybe that would help. I haven't been since I was maybe 10-12 years old. Maybe it would be better under the influence and with your own soundtrack. I always get annoyed with their choice of music.
