The (belated) Daily Word in red-white-and-blue mixtape, bears and fire-free festivities

The Daily Word

Inspired by Laurie Anderson's description of "Yankee Doodle" as a surrealist masterpiece, I whipped up this rad red-white-and-blue mixtape for 'Merica—and all y'all.

"One count of being a bear. And one count of being an accessory to being a bear."

In the interest of preventing more fire, scope local hackerspace Quelab's list of festive Fourth projects that offer all the fun of fireworks with none of the environmental risk.

If you're really hankering for fireworks (and John Michael Montgomery), check out the City's Freedom Fourth event.

Have fun, get radical and stay safe out there, y'all.
