Taking four steps back and four forward…

First off… we magGots would like to wish you a very happy, happy, happy 4th of July!

Growing up… We had our family reunion on the 4th. My Pops and his brothers would put together an insane fireworks display. Folks traveled from all four corners to see our redneck explosive shenanigans…

The 4th of July, 2012… David Graham, Rachael Deacon, April Lynne Radzanowski and I took a little trip. It was a rough year and a rough day for me… Being the anniversary of my Pops passing… and just three weeks before Mr. Ben was in the hospital battling his ailing health (July 28th, which was also the first day of shooting His Devil’s Night in West Virginia. Moments before shooting our first shot, we received the phone call… which of course set the bar and importance for the shoot having much more meaning.)

My rad friends thought we could pour that negative energy into something positive… So in classic magGot fashion…

We set sail to shoot a magGot Corner and enjoy the many festivities at a carnival to boot. Such a groovy day was had indeed; full of insane laughter, tasty treats and the best friends in the world!

Though the footage was thought to be lost, it has resurfaced just in time to chop it up and share our little adventure…

This will forever be an important day for me. Through memories growing up as well as so much more.  Here’s to another 4th today…

Have a very magGoty 4th!
