Here There and Everywhere

Seattle Library Flash Mob

“I knew you’d like a Seattle one, if you haven’t seen it already,” my friend wrote to me. I totally do. Seattle ROCKS! What a great study break, and what a cool library to allow the Seattle Theatre Group to stage it there. 🙂

  1. If you like that, you’ll love looking through Improv Everywhere’s site. Reenacting Ghostbusters in the NYC Public Library, Star Wars on a subway, singing made-up showtunes in public places…they’re fantastic.

  2. OH EMMA! Oh! Oh! Oh! I just watched “No Underwear April 1st” and I was just dying laughing. I LOVE these things, these events that take the day out of the mundane and ordinary and lift it into something a tiny bit chaotic and a whole lot hilarious! Thank you! That is a GREAT website, and they are doing some very creative work. (I’m also a great fan of Princess Leia!)

  3. One of my old roommates was actually there when they did one of their older ones – the Grand Central Freeze. It was a few years ago, and for five minutes people all over Grand Central Station froze in place. People got pictures with them, one guy was in the middle of eating a banana, somebody was leaning down to pick something up, etc. My other favorite that they did was called “Mobius Strip” – a mobius strip is when you take a strip of paper, twist it once, and tape the ends together so that no matter which side you trace along, you end up on both sides of the piece of paper…thus it’s a never ending piece. For theirs, they had a 5 minute loop that their people did in a Starbucks – a couple walks in and has a fight about the same thing, a guy spills coffee on himself, etc. Over and over again. It’s pretty hilarious…then again, Subway mirror (they had identical twins dress alike, sit across from each other on the subway, and mimic each other) was funny too…

  4. I love it. People are so creative, creating something out of nothing, and oh, the difference changes everything, lifts an ordinary day into the extraordinary. Sort of like someone who can create an entire blog on the daily life of hermit crabs, LLLOOOOLLLLLLLLL! Are you in the same place, or have you already gone?
