How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be seen and Beyonce to be heard singing “God Bless America” live on TV.
Via the magic of Twitter we also know some of our favorite musicians spent the day overeating, overdrinking, watching Independence Day, and in two cases, recklessly planking. I’ve posted the best tweets below chronologically, and collected any attached photos in a gallery above. Click through for pics of Bethany Cosentino’s boob coozie, the National and Beirut sharing a meal, Mrs. Wayne Coyne topless with Cheetos, and a photo of outdoor fireworks from Ducktails intended to rub it in to those of us you who spent the night inside watching Hoarders. Whoever they may be.
Oh, and FlyLo dropped a free 2hr24min MP3 mix of his favorite songs for summer, so don’t miss the DL link in his tweet.
But seriously, we had a planking incident go horribly wrong today. Hope the bone isn’t broken. In waiting room for diagnosis
I can’t find firecrackers anywhere here in Manchester. #4thOfJuly
I Still Have To Take A Shit Since Yesterday Fuck
Oh hey Twitter, sorry I haven’t had time to check in. I was busy DJing ON A YACHT. http://twitpic.com/5l3jsk
Happy 4th! If u need me I’ll be shooting fireworks from a swimming pool filled w/hardboiled eggs into another swimming pool filled w/air.
the wrens wish you a happy Independents Day. Pun intended but so are the well wishes.

july 4, the world has many different viewpoints. I see 3 firework displays at once in San Diego- most see only 1. In the U.K they see none.
someone tell this cat to get off the playstation
That Shit Was One Of My Greatest Accomplishments
As we celebrate our independence from a constitutional monarchy, it seems appropriate to announce that nobody in this group is a Prince fan.
Just read 1 in 4 Americans don’t know what country we broke off from? Can this possibly be true? Do we even deserve fireworks & hotdogs?

“I picked a hell of a day to quit drinkin'”
That was a deep quote from Independence Day. 4th of July just hasn’t been the same since 1996. Where are you Will Smith?

My favorite of the fireworks were those little microbe duders that would scatter into random directions after apexing to a certain size. O_o
How much do these firework displays cost?? Its funny where our priorities are.
Did you see that woman on Hoarders with all the dolls? She has way too many dolls.
