    it's just more flashmob crap, surely?

    19.25: get slapped in the face by harried commuter who is fed up with fuckwits getting in his way with their desperately tired "Please look at me!!! Aren't I cwwwazy and wacky!" antics.

    <cue applause from bystanders>

    there's all sorts of different motives behind people wanting to go surely?
    it designates a time and a place and the people who're interested turn up and dance about...
    most commuters find it pretty amusing (which it is)...
    its not about getting in people's faces, but enjoying the strangeness of being part of a crowd all dancing to their own beat- makes a pretty refreshing change from dancing in stinking hot night clubs to boring repetitive duf-duf...
    :p

    Nah, it's just a load of self indulgent, well-past-its-sell-by-date, over-done, "look at me" twaddle.

    I bet, like, there'll be lots of people taking pictures of each other, yah?

    dancing in the street is cool as fuck. i love dancing to my walkman

    i caused a car crash once :D

    i doubt i'd ever be arsed to turn up to an event specifically designed for it, but i don't see why you have to sneer at it

    there's "yeah-mates" wherever you go- its unavoidable, but it doesn't mean every one has the same intentions/ reason to be there-
    have you been to one?

    I had to walk through a preening gang of attention-desperate iPod-waving Flashmobbers at Paddington station once and I dearly wished someone had set about them with a high powered water hose.

    Sooo avant-garde!

    Sounds just like flash-mob twattism to me - let me guess, after 30 minutes everyone goes their own way leaving bemused commuters wondering what that was all about?

    Utterly pointless, and has been done before.

    i don't understand why such hostility

    it;s exactly the same reaction a lot of people would have had to reclaim the streets re: preening etc.

    it's just kids fannying about and it's just as valid in the sense of creating a community as this website

    Some of the American Improv Everywhere stunts were pretty funny. I like the fact that a bit more thought has gone into them.

    Reclaim Streets had a valid purpose, as does this website.

    A bunch of twats being told "no dancing before 19.24pm" has no purpose other than being far too late for the mercifully short-lived "craze" of flash mobbing.

    editor hiraethified

    Err, Reclaim the Streets was a political protest not an excuse to wave expensive consumer goods in the air, you clueless wazzock!


    :D :D :mad:

    Exactly. There's some funny shit out there, but dancing at Liverpool Street has been done already. You might surprise the odd Japanese tourist, but every fucker else has seen it before.

    Think up some new shit.

    and the purpose is to bring people together. i don't know what flash mobbing is but if a bunch of people meeting up and fannying about then (hopefully) going somewhere afterwards to fanny about a bit more is wrong i don't see why

    they are told no dancing before a certain time so they can all start dancing at the same time....like i said. it's not my thing, but i don't see why people are sneering so much. let the children boogie....

    ok to put it another way for the simpleminded, reclaim the streets and that sort of shit is something i'm all for, having parties wherever the fuck we like is very important imo. but it is just as much a product of the system as people dancing about with their ipods etc. if reclaim the streets had evolved into something else then i wouldn't be taking the piss out of it, but the best you lot ever did was trash mcdonalds in regent street, fucking wow.

    Well, that and get the road building agenda and green issues into the headlines, massively raise public awareness of environmental issues, introduce a new generation into original, smart and successful protests and - arguably - force the government to cancel some of its planned road building projects.

    PS Reclaim The Streets didn't go about "trashing mcdonalds in regent street." You've got it confused with Mayday, silly boy!
