So, one week ago the nation was celebrating. People everywhere were blowing up all sorts of fireworks to commemorate the rockets’ red glare on the fourth of July. In my neighborhood the practice was… extreme, to say the least. In fact, it sounded the way this great video looks. It’s a time-lapse of the Chicago skyline dotted with fireworks wherever you look. Fireworks which, coincidentally, are illegal within the city limits. And since this video’s so neat, I can sort of see the appeal. But still, just to be clear, setting off fireworks in a crowded neighborhood later than 11pm kind of makes you a jerk, at least around my house, no matter how cool they look.
