Welcome back, Kotaku readers. Did you have a good/festive/drunken 4th of July? Or was it just another day to you, as you celebrate your independence on a different schedule? Well, we take all walks of life in our open thread, so... welcome.
Mine was great, thanks for asking. I gorged on sliders, hot dogs, guacamole, cupcake and newborns. Seriously, I was surround by babies. It was crazy! My fourth continues tonight as my neighbors continue to burn through their remaining illegal fireworks. It's very considerate of them, this festivity extension. Gracias, neighbors!
Here are a few things to get the conversation going. Have a good night talking about whatever!
- Cabel Sasser's annual fireworks shopping post is up - You must see the fireworks display known as "Computer."
- Warren Ellis' new book SVK has a very neat trick - Thought bubbles can only be read under UV lighting.
- Vanity Fair's Justin Bieber cover is the worst selling since Will Smith's Wild Wild West issue - Unbeliebable? Says VF: "Who knew 12-year-olds didn't buy magazines?"
- Casey Anthony found not guilty in murder of her child - But the real story is this tweet from Entenmanns.
