Good morning and Happy Finally Friday, patriots, malcontents, misrepresents and boom-happy pyros of all persuasions. It’s the first of July, before a long weekend of disturbing noise for many of us in the States. Joy.

Hey, look, maybe it makes me a bad Amurrican because I actually think that minding the firework and grilling statutes re: where it can and can’t happen and who should be allowed to do so on their own keeps people from burning each other’s houses down when they are so close together, but I won’t friggin’ apologize for it. I don’t really understand why blowing shit up is patriotic in the first place. Is it some kind of warrior nation hoo-rah thing? Seriously, someone explain it to me.

Anywho, it is in fact Friday. And July. And I hope those of you feeling the heat with or without the sparks can stay cool and safe. In the meantime, stop by and say hey and drop some nice friendly .gif bombs if you feel so inclined.
