I hate the Fourth of July.
There, I’ve said it.
Not popular, and I’d like it if it didn’t threaten our livelihood in this stupid city.
Every year we have to pack up our computers and such,
and sit in the studio not for just the one night, but for a couple of nights until the wee hours of the morning to make sure the building is not burnt to the ground
by idiot people lighting illegal skyrockets within a few blocks.
We are in the NW Industrial Sanctuary, which is deserted over holidays.
Hence the idiots choosing this place to party.
And the cops do NOTHING, though they can see the illegal fireworks
and the lockup is in this neighborhood so they are RIGHT HERE.
We don’t call cops anymore, just sit and have a maybe stupid idea that
if one of the damn rockets broke a window we can put out a fire.
