Celebrate Independence Day With Fireworks

Posted by LOTGK on July 4, 2013

As the twilight of Independence Day rapidly approaches, it is our solemn duty and privilege to pay homage to all men and women who have given their lives paying the ultimate sacrifice defending our country and our freedom.

Tonight as we celebrate the Fourth of July remember the words so elegantly penned by Francis Scott Key during the defense of Fort Henry September 20th, 1814…

“And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.”

Before you begin to illuminate the skies this evening by launching volley after volley of pyrotechnic patriotism, pause a moment and reflect on the sacrifices incurred by our forefathers more than two centuries ago. Gaze upon the heavens in wonder as fireworks brilliantly and brashly shout out loud and clear that we the people stand united as a nation declaring in unison that America is the best damn nation the world has known.

Hug you wife, husband, significant other, son, and daughter. Yell out a hearty hello to your neighbors that have come forth from their homes this evening to watch the fireworks shows and to celebrate as an entire nation.

“O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”

God Bless America.

Phantom Fireworks – Half And Half Rack
The Half and Half does exactly what it means in several ways. Each of it’s nine shots have a very loud report, (Turn on your speakers to fully enjoy the video) and each burst splits into two separate colors that fill the sky. The finale shoots three big bursts all at once that will assuredly be a crowd pleaser.

Phantom Fireworks – Stellar Storm
The stellar Storm is a 12 shot which sends two shots at once in the sky bursting a split second apart from each other filling the sky with noise and multi-color bursts.

Phantom Fireworks – Charcoal Rack
The charcoal Rack is a 9 shot finale that rockets out of the tubes into the sky with large colorful palm bursts and very loud reports.

Worst Fireworks Prank Ever

Posted by LOTGK on July 4, 2011

Worst Fireworks Prank Ever

Happy Independence Day!

As the day light slips into night this evening and you begin your annual preparation to light up the skies with fireworks, please use common sense and caution when lighting your fireworks displays.
* Always read the caution labels.
* Always have a bucket of water or hose available just in case.
* Never carry fireworks in your back pocket.
* Never attempt to re-light a firework that doesn’t ignite or malfunctions.
* Do not throw fireworks at the crowd.
* In fact, don’t throw fireworks period.
* Don’t smoke when lighting fireworks.
* Don’t drink and light fireworks.
* And for God’s sake, never, ever, place the last red firecracker of the evening into the mouth of your sleeping girlfriend passed out on the couch. The results are never the outcome anticipated.

Two Stage Silver Jet Fireworks Crash

Posted by LOTGK on July 1, 2011

I was experimenting with slow motion video and sound using fireworks as my control subject. By chance, while filming a Two Stage Silver Jet it went haywire and crashed and burned.

The silver jet was supposed to spin on the ground throwing out silver sparks and lift into the sky. It was then supposed to fan out with more sparks and fly into the night sky about 100 feet or so.

Instead, it flopped around on the ground and lifted ever so slightly and crashed to the ground. Watch the video, it explains it way better than words.

Sidenote: Read the instructions on the label of the fireworks you are going to light. It makes them work so much better.

May The Fourth Be With You…

Slow Motion Fireworks – Fountain Cones

Posted by LOTGK on June 22, 2011

Continuing with my video’s of slow motion fireworks, this offering is of two ordinary fountain cones side by side. I noticed how the one fountain on the right sort of spit out the powder.

May the Fourth be with you.

We Control Your Internet Service

Posted by LOTGK on June 1, 2011

There is nothing wrong with your Internet service. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. Until we inform you otherwise, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your Internet service. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to… The Grassy Knoll Institute.

Actually, you can merely click your mouse on the back button and you will be whisked away back to surfing porn in no time. However, the above video is pretty cool. If you like fireworks, as I do, then a treat is in store for you.

The video you are about to see is a super slow motion with sound of a whistling tri-rotating wheel up close and personal. After filming and watching this the first time, it made me think of The Outer Limits. (The opening narrative above) I love the way the sparks fly out like a forming galaxy and the whistle, just damn eerie. Enjoy the video.
