Happy (Merry?) Fourth of July

I'm well aware that we really should change our blog name from All Things Go to All Things Adrian due to my complete and total lack of posts in the past month. It's been kinda hectic for me recently what with graduation, beach week, jobs, explosive diarrhea, and saving the world. Anyways, it's time for me to get back on track and get writing. Unless you're a commie bastard, you are aware that today is July 4th, the day of independence of all of us citizens of this fine nation we know as the United States of America, home of cheeseburgers, football, and mullets. With all of the anti-war sentiment and civil unrest, it's easy to jump on the "I hate America" or "I'm moving to Canada" bandwagon, but today is a time to set this all aside and feel just a little bit patriotic. I am going to be watching the Italy vs. Germany World Cup semifinal match, (and pulling for Italy because Germany knocked out my boy Messi and Argentina). I'm also doing some good ole' Amurrican BBQ and kickin' it with some friends. It's July 4th, so everyone get out your firecrackers, coozies, and shitty American beers (Goddamn you High Life Light) and raise your glasses to the finest country on the finest planet. With that in mind, here are some America/Freedom/Independence related songs to get you going. Have a wonderful Independence Day, and make sure to check HBO Family which is showing ID4 back-to-back-to-back (I can't get enough of Will Smith). The Decemeberists - July, July! Jurassic 5 - Freedom Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American Mike Doughty - American Car Simon & Garfunkel - America Dntel - Fireworks Ted Leo & the Pharmacists - Loyal to My Sorrowful Country -Zack
