04 Jul Independence Day Tribute: ‘Merica
WE LOVE YOU, AMERICA!
America: 2017. 241st birthday. We salute you from across the country and from around the world, with your ever-changing diversity, love of freedom, and unquestionable firepower against terrorists. We love you, the people inside of you, and the things that they do for one another – across endless bounds of hope, from sea to shining sea.

Regardless of how you personally feel about politics, groups of people, religions, your fellow human, today is not the day for all that. Today is the day for celebrating a nation’s independence from way back in the day and throwing back a few cold ones with friends, family, and neighbors – even the ones with the annoying kids down the block. They’ll grow up eventually. So raise a toast to the nation’s birthday, our founding father’s did – have you seen the bar tab from those fuckers?! I want to party like they did back in the day.
And one more thing: America is about freedoms that people have fought for over the last 241 years. While we may be sometimes belligerent, sometimes assholes, and sometimes idiotic, we are still able to do things so many others in the world could only wish they could do. Isn’t it time we start thinking about that and being thankful, and not bitching about what we don’t have or what’s not fair? How about we start by helping and supporting the art community by making art great again? Support us in our conquest of a long game against the terrorists and help us succeed in creating art that people can appreciate and value!
With all that being said, we want to wish you all a safe, epic, and very American Independence Day! Enjoy the fireworks, enjoy the drinks if you’re drinking, and remember – you’re a badass!
