You read right, an International Flash Mob to be performed on Homestuck day next year! Read more for details!
It's pretty much a bunch of little Flash Mobs done on the same day but with all the sames songs and dances.
I was randomly watching Flash Mob videos on Youtube and thinking of different good ways for Homestuck to be seen by the mainstream and then it hit me: A World Wide Flash Mob to Homestuck, In Cosplay!
How this works is that the Flash Mob will start at 4:13PM and end at 6:12PM in whatever time zone you live in so that it's not only all at 'the same time' but it kind of makes a more steady flow of videos being uploaded and news reports and what not. Also easier for coordination here. This is all to be done in Homestuck Cosplay so get your horns and hammers ready!
I know it seems like a long amount of time but you don't have to dance the entire time. It allows enough time for people to come and go as they need/feel, rest, and take turns with the many cameras that are to be present.
Each song will have a list of characters to dance for it to allow people to rest and also because it's fun for the rest of us. I will be posting a list of rules once I start getting people saying they'd be interested in doing this.
Everyone will be in charge of their own city/town/village/etc. We don't have choreography yet nor do we have the full list of music. Each place is going to need at least ONE camera taping JUST the dancers because at the end I want to have all the videos in one huge playlist to send to Andrew Hussie.
Suggestions for music are greatly appreciated and when we have a full list I'll start holding auditions for choreographers. I will be grabbing several for this project with no more than two songs for any one person to create a dance to. Songs that already have dances will use those.
I'll post details on how that will work when the time comes.
~Once the songs are set, we can start discussing order. One thing for sure is that 'The Happiest Homestuck Song Ever' is going to be last.~
We have a tumblr page! http://intrnl-homestuck-flash-mob-hq.tumblr.com/ spread it around and tell people on there that if they want to run the group in their town/city/etc. to drop me an ask with their Name, URL, and Location.
Quick Note of Warning: If I reject or don't readily accept any suggestion made, please do not push me on it! Some songs I need to listen to a few times and think about. Some songs I just don't think will work with what I'm wanting for this. Pushing me to accept a song will get the exact opposite end result of me refusing to use it no matter what. In the end it's my decision please respect that.
Song List (not in order, not complete): Feel free to request songs or even question any that are on the list. Cascade will not be on here because it is way too long. The total time needs to come to about 1:59:00
Happiest Homestuck Song Ever - 5:05
Pyrocumulus Kickstart (lyric version) - 3:04
Turn Me On - 2:57

We have found someone to choreograph the dances for us already! Thank you so much striderssuGROINis for volunteering!
The Song List has been filled and completed! I will now start working on the order of the songs. If you have suggestions on what songs go where feel free to ask. PLEASE spread this thread around as much as you can.
