FIREWORKS

When I watch the New Year eve fireworks I feel anger, sad with a heavy heart. The rare earth metals (which the fireworks burn) on Earth are strategic resources for human future. Many high tech equipment need them to build. They are cheap; we can afford to burn them. Yes. But the market only reflects the present demand and supply conditions. It excluded / externalised the endless of future generations. The market, the modern economics totally externalised the far future, because it don’t talk, it don’t have a hard leverage on the present economic factors (they are the unborn, the weakest). Its leverage can only projected on the reality through our rational thinking, but that is exactly the thing our modern economy denies as mirage, too far, irrelevant. The whole human kind had lost direction dangerously. We don’t know why we live and how to live. We take real mirage as real destiny and happily and enthusiastically chase them towards extinction hundreds or thousands generations ahead. It is the distance in time that puzzled us and makes us think it is not real, too early to consider about. But we know the laws of thermodynamic is true and what we do now is irreversible that will determine the fate of our future.

Not only rare earth metals but all vital resources we are wasting on our overbreeding, chasing happiness, vanity life styles, competition, etc… we even tap into the Earth life blood --- geothermal energy for house heating and generate power and the main stream are planning a total transfer to geothermal energy.

We always celebrating, what to celebrate for my friend?

Another option for New Year's Eve if you're single and in NYC would be SingleAndTheCity's annual New Year's Eve Singles Party @Stitch Lounge (W. 37th near 8th).  Party goes from 7pm-3am and you can arrive at your leisure.  I met my boyfriend at their party 3 years ago.  Around 400 singles attend. The trick is to get your tickets early.  Prices go up as the event gets closer and are $100 at the door the night of the event if they're not sold out.  Purchase at http://www.SingleAndTheCity.com

What to expect:
*Open bar from 7-8pm (doors open at 6:30PM)
*Complimentary appetizers from 8-9PM
*Event photography
*Ice-breakers, prizes & give-aways
*Hip-hop/Top 40 music & dancing all night
*Champagne toast 
*Midnight kiss?

New Years Eve in NYC, Stone Rose has been rated as a very hot event. It's a Lounge in the Time Warner Building on Columbus Circle that overlooks Central Park. It is partially owned by Bruce Willis and usually hosts a lot of celebrity guests that in the past have included Effron, Diddy, Jeter, etc. The place is awesome and the views are incredible. Tickets can be brought here: www.nyepartyguide.com/tickets Tickets to all other NYC events can be bought here: http://tickets2014.cravetickets.com/newyork/newyearseve/12-31-2013
