Fourth Of July 2012
« on: July 04, 2012, 08:44:17 am »
This should be under fail. But really it's just documenting a freakin hot dry summer that cancels most any firework activity.

Most communities around here is cancelling fireworks because of our drought and all vegetation is so dry it's all a fire hazard. I believe they still might be doing down by the riverfront. But there is no way in hell I'm rubbing elbows with  thousands of others downtown in 105 degree, high humidity.

Heart is playing under the arch, but all I can think, I feel sorry for them.

If I had a chance to see Heart perform tonight, I'd just go and ask Nancy and Ann to come over to my place for a pool party, dinner and drinks, supply them with a couple of acoustic guitars and then lock the door so they couldn't leave. But that's just me.

Yes. I had to sell something to pay for rent and food.

San Diego Fireworks Flop 2012

I don't know what people are complaining about. This is AWESOME!!! I guess if you waited all day to only get 18 seconds worth, then it could be a bummer. Guys now exactly what I'm talking about.

Okay, back on topic. For locals, fireworks mean nothing to us. We get free firework shows every night courtesy of Sea World which puts on a show to close out each night. Even when I'm outside and the show is in full effect, I don't pay much attention to it anymore. I haven't for years.

Here's a report out from out local rag


Last Night
Here's Your Postcard Perfect St. Louis 4th of July Photo (Plus Heart Highlights)

Slideshow of Heart at the Landing

Yeah, we'll raise an InBev product to that.
The USA is one year older, and this year's celebration was oddly subdued in much of the country -- massive drought conditions led to the cancellation of fireworks displays all over, including many in the St. Louis area.

But the show downtown went on over a big, wet river with some assistance from rock and roll badass Heart. RFT Music photographer Kholood Eid was among the thousands braving the heat to bask in all the glory -- a few key moments from the night's festivities follow:


Nancy Wilson of Heart plays the hell out of her guitar on the 4th of July in Downtown St. Louis


Fans at Fair St. Louis


Ann Wilson of Heart.


It's a little bittersweet, but whatever.

This comment is about InBev buying out Anheuser Busch
