Last night’s firework display in Eynsham, though surprisingly pricy at £5 a head, was also surprisingly exciting. There was a good ten or twenty minutes of solid fireworks, including airborne catherine wheels, enormous multicoloured explosions and rockets that turned into slightly smaller rockets when they exploded. The smaller rockets looped around crazily, and j4 decided to christen them ferrets, saying: “well, that’s how ferrets would behave if they were on fire.”
Elsewhere, Tim Ireland was burning a guy equipped with a CCTV camera and then publishing the guy’s eye view on the web. So very wrong and yet so very right, that you don’t know where to begin on both counts. Where’s the last of the Mohicans when you need him?
