They're shit and I hate them.
Katy Perry's HIT SONG!
you're scared of bangs
Nearly an hour.
hate that song mind, especially as they even put it on Cbeebies..just when you think you're safe
would rather they let off the whole 30 minutes worth in one go.
There needs to be an unpredictable/dangerous element. Letting them off yourself is acceptable.
25 minutes of boring widdly bits before building to a big crescendo which was the only reason you went to it in the first place.
in Bournemouth they were trying to break the record for the most fireworks set off at once or something. It was shit and they didnt even break the record, but the pier went on fire which was cool.
I hate them too.
What you gonna do
and your opinions are shit.
Especially when they're soundtracked with good stirring music like Rule Britannia. Lancaster castle does a great one every year.
I liked it in Australia where they're illegal to buy so you only get amazing organised displays and none of the chavs buying them to set them off throughout all of autumn which just makes my dog bark all night, pretty annoying.
so ^that lot are extolling the virtues of fireworks displays that are even shitter than the ones we have in Aust?
and I was so drunk I don't really remember them, BUT YEAH.
as it does to pretty much any experience
Still, I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest you wouldn't have enjoyed it any more if you'd been sober.
But when people are setting them off for weeks around those events I hate them as they scare the shit out of my dog when he's out on a walk.
but fireworks are objectively boring
The only issue is that they're very expensive, so there might not be any actual fireworks.
Do you think that'll be an issue for folks?
I *am* invited...right?
(I was considering inviting a bunch of your DiS folk actually. It's just that some 'real people' might be there, and I wasn't sure if they'd appreciate the image of a shirtless Rob standing in my garden shouting 'FUCK YOU I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!' at my neighbours cat?)
I think it's definitely a good idea.
picked this up off a gay guy, so its not homophobic ok? even tho i am.
also the Embrace song of the same same was alright (they had some decent tunes, despite the shit voice and the rubbish rock posturing).
then they can be incredible... usually it's underwhelming
Hated them then. Hate them now.
Pops Meowingtons Big Disney Adventure... I can't wait.
Spare no details ...
He does buy a new pair of Ray Bans everytime he goes on holiday because he always goes into the sea and forgets they are on his face and then loses them.
And we got to celebrate British time and American time. All day drinking ftw.
when people over the age of 15 want to 'go and watch the fireworks' I find it amazing.
Thousands of students go to Hyde Park in Leeds every year, to stand in the freezing cold, looking at a big fire and then at some fireworks.
I know that when you reduce most things to their literal level they sound crap, but I just don't understand the appeal.
is a visual trip...for me anyway.....then again I love lazer tunnels at discos.....and i like glitter and holographic wrapping paper.....and 3d..... and the big screen etc
Of course they are not worth the environmental cost, but neither is most of modern societies rubbish, and most of it doesnt make my visual appreciation circuits go 'oooohh'
