Seems like everyone in a 5 mile radius of my home woke up this morning with the same realization: July 4th can’t be celebrated without a well manicured lawn. Hence, it was decided — through some mutual telepathic means — that everyone would synchronize their lawn mowers for a 9am chorus of mechanical whirs.
Happily, by 11am, the lawns were mowed and yes, dear folks, the fireworks commenced. At 11 o’clock in the fraking morning.
By noon, my ears were mush.
By 2pm, I came to the conclusion that if you can’t beat them, crank up the music. Today’s playlist:
– 1776, the original Broadway Recording
– Les Miserables, the original West End Recording
– Hair, original Broadway Recording
– Nightmare Before Christmas, original Film Recording
Theme? You betcha – Revolutions! Of all shapes and sizes from the American and French Revolutions, to the Cultural Revolution, to a revolution involving Ghouls, Skeletons, and Santa Claus!
