Google Video and Warwick 40th fireworks

Writing about web page

Some techy soul has been good enough to upload their video of University of Warwick 40th Anniversary Gala Concert fireworks display to Google Video

For anyone who wasn't their and doesn't believe how great the display was…take a look. If you've got any videos of your own you want hosted for free and want the world to see, just upload them. Warwick Shootout entries anyone?

  1. I read today that Hunter S Thompson's ashes are going to be incorporated into a firework display as requested in his Will. They are mixing his ashes with 38 mortar rockets and firing them into the night sky. What a way to go!

    At the risk of sounding incredibly ignorant (no change there then) – who is Hunter S Thompson Tom? It's funny but my other half has said he wants to go like that – well I don't think he has actually specified the 38 mortar rocket scenario – just one big one! (I'm pretty sure he won't have heard of this Hunter chap either!)

  5. link

    American writer and journalist – wrote Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and was the poster boy for a particular style of writing labelled 'Gonzo'. One of the more brilliant writers of his generation

    Thanks for educating me Tom and for the useful link too. I must admit though – it still didn't mean a great deal to me to know that he'd written 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' – I think I must've missed a whole cult thing there! He did seem quite an interesting character though.

    I think they may have gone against his wishes in splitting him up into 38 mortars as according to the info there he wanted to be fired out of cannon 'in the shape of a double-thumbed-fist, 150 feet in length'. Still I guess such items are a bit tricky to find lying about!
