I say, yes
hohoho, T-Mobile did those ones, ahahaha, at Liverpool Street station, hohohoaoaahahahaha, where everyone danced? Woahahaehehahahahahahahhhehehehehahahha
They were hahaha brillllliant!1111111111111
and people were stood there frozen for a minute. i wasnt impressed
i'm going to piss on their shoes. But otherwise it ain't harming me.
we do what we can to get by
Its because they know that this is PHOTGRAPHED and VIDEO'D and they'll be able to PLASTER it all over their facebook and show their FRIENDS how WACKY they are and the ENDLESS fuckign FUN they have. Its just cuntish.
imagine what would happen if people plastered themselves being at the pub and being hammered all over facebook. It'd be a nightmare!!
I'm a flashmob purist.
I dont do this you bellend.
there wouldn't be lots of photos on it of you at the pub, getting pissed? Sure about that, sunbeam? And how is that any different to doing a shitty silent disco.
MEAT. GRAVE. SHOVELLED. ALL.
My last photo is from December 2012? And the two before that is me patting a girl dressed as a robot on the head :s
you've been tagged in a ton of photos in 2012 of you drinking. i wasn't actually having a pop at you at all though! i was more saying: people get tagged in photos being cunts in a supermarket is as stupid as people getting tagged in photos of them getting hammered in a pub. both futile but ultimately harmless (although drinking arguably less harmless)
As I was THERE when it all crossed over from taking photos of what was going on to planning everything you do so you could be photographed doing it. Its fucking wank. Had to really bite my tongue when my cousin spent an hour moving champagne bottles and cards for her graduation for a photo entitled 'Let the celebrations begin'! Its so needy and it winds me up.
thanks for pointing out no-ones thought Ive been worthy of being in a photo since 2012 you cunt
But for some reason I couldn't find the camera bit on my phone or in fact hold it steady. They would have been good pictures. Also, there are pics of you in glasgow at my birthday but I didn't tag you in them because I think it's up to people to tag themselves.
These photos dont exist or Ive never seen them. I imagine they wouldnt be the best side :D
I am wearing pink hot pants! What the hell was I thinking? I'll try to send you them and you can tag at will.
People who cringe generally = people who don't actually have much going on in their lives.
okay, people who cringe at the harmless actions of others etc etc
because despite wht they might say is a motivator, it's that they deem it uncool/wouldn't be brave enough to risk being considered uncool by doing something similar.
it is a projection of self. and that ramps up so much more when people need to tell everyone they're cringing as well, which happens on dis a lot
wince/cringe at prejudice, idiocy, awkwardness and the like,
but someone being a bit silly/doing something stupid just for a laugh or fun is probably only going to earn respect, if anything.
(I'm always quite cringe when I hit on people, to be fair)
But anecdotally: people who are sound don't cringe at other much.
than pretend to be ok with it coz i'm a RIGHT ON GUY, LIVE AND LET LIVE no let's shut this shit down and make these chumps realise it's unacceptable, then there will be fewer instances of it in future
but i don't give a shite if someone planks, because why the hell would i? would i do it myself? no. but do i have the time to cringe at someone else? no.
Curse my ineffectual scheduling
I'M TOO BUSY TO CRINGE
SO MANY PROJECTS ON THE GO
'projects' made them seem too much like hobbies
To show how they were all intrinsically ?
Find it difficult to be anything but utterly apathetic about their existence either way, really.
does that count?
probably one of the most fun things I did all year
Remember his name?! Or what became of his shit band?
Is this how the "Feeling A Bit Low About DiS" thread started?
total low blow
i shall now return to my sorrow box in the corner of Theo's office, where I sleep
Close second though. Probably
My sphincter is super clenched with repressed scottish person embarrassment nonetheless.
What is it even for? And just why?
I know what they are now. But why?
- people arrange to meet up in a certain location to all do the same thing. usually in a public place (otherwise, it's just called 'zumba class' or whatever). So you might have a flashmob where everyone meets at trafalgar square dressed as badgers and they all do the Gangnam Style dance, or something.
So how is this fdifferent from that other thing people did when they pretend to dance to a tune like pure fannies.
I dunno, I wouldn't want to be a part of it.
And are you talking about the Harlem Shake in respect of the pure fanny dancing?
My friends got stoned and tried to do one, but there were only three of them and it was a load of arse. They did it to harder better faster stronger, it was ridiculously funny but not in the way it was intended.
Yeah, I know flashmobbers must get fun out of it, I just wondered if there was a wider purpose. I have nothing against it other than the involuntary clenching in knee jerk embarrassment.
I think I probs would have enjoyed a flashmob as a student. I'm definitely too old for that shit
I watched 'when in Rome' last night and although i enjoyed how silly it was, i think it's put me off the romcom genre for at least a week.
the ending would be a perfect example of a flashmob though
Ad i don't get it either.
The temptress in life will find her wicked ways punished in the burning pit of Sodom for eternity in the fire of hell
When girls draw a moustache (normally a curly one) on their index finger and then hold it under their nose and make a duck face. Surprised we were not all pulled into the pits of Sodom instantly the first person did this.
with the word GEEK (in high school-style lettering) on the arse. GE on the left cheek, EK on the right
in shirts sayin DORK
GEEK / DORK / NERD
FUCK OFF, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS LIKE BEING A GEEK AT SCHOOL YOU FUCKING GOON
^i'm gonna get a t-shirt saying this, in high-school lettering
and they're so shit at it, I was way better at it when I was a socially inadequate teenager and I'm still way better at it as a socially inadequate adult
as people who used to wear "Jesus Is My Homeboy" trucker caps* looked as likely to be Christians.
*cringed while typing this bit.
basically whisked her halfway round the world, where he'd somehow organised some sort of all-singing all-dancing bunch of people do something off of Glee or something. She said yes, it went viral round the world and made the news.
I bumped into her a few months later and it was the first thing I mentioned. I suspect it's the first thing anyone who ran into her had said for a good few months.
She was absolutely aghast at the entire experience.
Bit concerned that someone was filming my reaction to it as went a bit crazy.
Argentina was full of them (might be dwarves actually.) i screamed in ones face my mistake because i got a fright.
so are people defending them.
Loosen up you Fun Fascist. You are the worst.
he's also put gel on his moustache and styled it in an offbeat fashion
and stupid at the same time
at the end of the day it's people having fun, at the expense of no one really, so why stop them?
* jumps up and lands on the floor in all like musical theatre clothes and loads of people come out and do all dancing and that *
SPONTANEITY AND FREEDOM
* people with acoustic instruments and old waistcoats come out and play shit awful music *
O prithee, companion
Wont ye be me wife
We'll get lost in the dancing
Till the end of me life
WOO HUMANITY WOOO
All the festivities stop once the cameramen have got shots of bystanders -- an old woman looking at her husband going ooooh, kids laughing with their parents, someone clapping along on his own
ME: Wooo guys that was totally geek yeah!
FOLK MAN: So wicked. So glad you organised it!
ME: HA! Don't thank me, dude! Thank the cool boffin godlike melvins at TFR Mobile Solutions, I'd never have gotten all of my mates together if it wasn't for their 3000 free texts and 500mb of free data
FOLK MAN: Aw gee, howsabout we just JAM a while. Why not live in the moment?
OTHER FOLK GIRL: (in a musical theatre American accent) Yeah, let's not waste the vibe of authentic human communectivimunitivity. Let's switch all the lights off in the shopping centre and illuminate everything just with our phones
FOLK MAN: Wow they're like candles. Ive got the most authentic semi
ME: HA! Humanity! WOO
there's your pound of flesh mute-branches. hope it fucking tasted good
