It’s Fourth of July weekend — albeit a stormy one here in New York City — and Mashable.com has posted 15 fun ways to ‘geek up’ your 4th of July.

Mashable likes it because it’s a retro, miniature version of the real thing.
Maybe it’s my New York City point of view, but….
Looks full size to me.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!
You’re no doubt gathered with family and friends around a grill laden with burgers and hot dogs, enjoying a cold beverage and awaiting the start of your local fireworks display.
…or, at least, that’s what every image you see on television and in movies would have you believe.
But did you know that there are 155 television marathons planned for the 4th of July weekend alone? Fans of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Monk,” “The A Team,” and even “Silent Library” can watch episode after episode of their favorites over the next three days.
Do you think these marathons are planned for folks standing around the charcoal briquettes? “Gather the kids, Grandma — there’s 12 hours of ‘Ugly Betty,’ and the family wouldn’t want to miss it!”
I don’t think so.
The TV networks program marathons over the holidays because so many people don’t have that idealized, family scenario. They may just be hanging out, enjoying their free time…or they may be lonely as hell.
It’s just funny to think the folks who sell the idea of what the 4th of July holiday is all about also sell the substitute…
Just in case.
