For many years I watched Dick Clark’s new years show on TV. Usually the only interesting part to me was the ball drop in times square. It’s such a classic image, there isn’t much difference each year except for the big numbers that light up when the ball hits the bottom. All they need to do is insert a shot of the new numbers and a couple shots of drunk people wearing those new year novelty glasses and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. I grew up in the Midwest and didn’t understand time zones when I was younger. It wasn’t until many years later that I figured out that I was watching a replay of the New York ball drop from an hour ago. I kind of felt lied to.
