LOL, yep, that's how the Seattle celebrations roll.  I have never actually gone to New Year's at the Needle, but it's tradition to watch it on the news every year.  They do a pretty rockin' job!

Fireworks have to be observed in person in my humble opinion. To me, it's like jazz music. There's a certain.... something that is lost in the translation from visual to digital. It's why I work in traditional mediums. Reality has a 3 dimensional tangibility that can't be replicated. It's so unique. Fireworks is like that too. They're never as impressive  all flat on a TV as they are there in 3D roaring in front of you :)

Truth. It's still pretty darn impressive, but I bet no television experience can beat seeing that in person.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

But... What if you're watching the fireworks on a high definition stereoscopic 3D television with 7.1 audio surround sound? Isn't that just as good as seeing it in real life? XD :rofl:

No way! Seriously! 3D can't make up for real life. All it can do is replicate sound and vague amounts of the visuals. It can't do taste, touch, or smell. Fireworks have a smell. They also emanate heat. Fire is a also a primal instinct. When we sense certain things, it triggers primal memories. fires are a gathering point for humans for a reason. They were the life bringers back in the dark ages. It's imprinted on our DNA

I was joking... XD I realize that seeing something in real life is so much better than seeing it on a tv screen, no matter how good the screen itself is.

The signature under my avi? Do you mean the text "it's catty-wompus!" under my avatar? (If you can't tell, I'm having an idiot day. By that I mean that I think my over-all intelligence has been lowered for some reason... I must have slept funny XD)

Ah. If I remember correctly, you were involved in the discussion of that word, correct? I must admit, I've taken a liking to it!

LOL, I was initially the one who said something about it being catty-wompus, and everyone was like, "Whaaaaaaa...?" :rofl:
