The Rose Parade

If you missed the Rose Parade (or want to watch it again, newly flush with the knowledge that it’s my and my Dad’s favorite parade), I highly recommend KTLA’s coverage, which is essentially perfect: it shows the entire parade straight through, with great camera coverage, no commercials, and no cutaways to talking heads. Best parade; best possible televisual presentation of a parade. There are real dogs on real surfboards, miniature horses dressed as unicorns, marching bands from Tennessee and Japan, folklorico dancers, a float by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a dove-release dedicated to the Pulse nightclub, and too many gorgeous blooms to count. Get you a dose.

(The stream definitely works from outside of the US. Did for me.)
