The saddest New Year's Eve in America just got sadder

The saddest New Year's celebration in the country has to be the Peach Drop in Atlanta. How sad is it? Imagine every Joy Division song wrapped together in one sorrowful dirge. Now that's sad. Don't believe me? Just watch this video of a past Peach Drop, ye mighty, and despair.

That's how sad it is. A sad, pathetic, shadow of the ball drop in Times Square. Only the ATL doesn't even get a lighted spheroid. It gets a somewhat flattened fiberglass peach with spotlights flashed upon. This occurs down in Underground Atlanta,  an albatross around the ATL's neck that no one is willing to just plow over and turn it into something useful like a Wal-Mart. Now imagine this sadness amongst a drunken crowd with the warm smell of colitas rising up through the air. Yeah, I'd rather spend the night at the house too.
This year's "celebration" will be a little more sadder than usual, however.

"Underground Atlanta has announced that Jackson, along with his mother, Katherine, and other family members will be ringing in the new year at the 22nd annual Peach Drop.
In addition to Jackson 5 songs, Jackson is expected to perform two songs from his upcoming solo album, "So Far, So Good."

LaToya must have had something better to do tomorrow night.
