Each and every day, I lose myself in the immediacy of the moment, find myself in the joy of the movement. Each and every day, I learn more and more...and, within that new knowledge, realize that I have so much farther to travel.

Frozen in Grand Central Station

This is so cool. We should try something like this in Vancouver.

Well, we do flashmobbing here in the form of mobile clubbing (courtesy of Foolish Operations)... but nothing on this scale. This is amazing. Look at the confused faces! lololol

It would be hard to freeze for that long. I'd get sore. better pick an easy position or you'd regret it...lol

This was organized by a group called Improv Everywhere

I saw this video posted on www.woostercollective.com

In-terms of vancouver...waterfront station might be a good location for something to this effect.
Busy enough anyways.

Yay Mel! I talked with Julie from Foolish Operations and we are going to try and at least get another couple of mobile clubbing events happening soon. I don't know if we can pull off something of this grandeur and scope, we'd need a ton of people and a good location and good timing. But we'll see - never say never, right?
