The dance was organized through word of mouth and social networking by Roma Flash Mob. I’ve gotta admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this song for a while, but I’m beginning to see what the hype is all about. Keep dancing, everyone!

The worldwide pop dance sensation from South Korea, known as “Gangnam Style,” has just wracked up two new honors: on Wednesday the single became number one in digital sales, and the video has made the Guinness Book of World Records. Not surprisingly, this type of global pop fever manifests itself in flash mobs. The latest took place on Sunday in New York’s Washington Square Park.

Очень надо захотеть чтобы увязать эти события,или я безнадежно аполитичен.

Graceful World Change: Meaningful, Fun and Empowering
I have heard that the next stage in world change, the big one,
is going to be to be one of grace and beauty.
I see world change occurring now in articles and applications on the internet.
I hear it in the vocabulary of people I interact with on a daily basis, in the news, and in movies.
You can hear the change coming in the new normal core vocabulary.
Carried on the lips and in the written words of humans is the cure.
The world is breaking loose of its dogmatic ideals and evolving around its living ideas.
The world is becoming aware of itself.
A world looking at itself as a world needing change and balance.
I have been developing ideas around graceful change, designing ideas to make real and meaningful change fun.
I have been testing these ideas in the social networks I am building.
First, I am an artist. I envision painting the world with a big brush. The brush I have chosen is flash mob applications.
A flash mob.
Google it, watch a flash mob on YouTube.
Flash mobs are large groups of people that coordinate their efforts on the internet.
Flash mobs organize and may choreograph their abstract expressions of art or acts, choose a location and time to meet,
and then perform as a flash mob.
Flash mob community renovation projects.
The idea I am developing now is a community trash removal flash mob.
This is how I imagine it working: Participants in the community take pictures of build-ups of trash in their neighborhoods.
The participants then down load their pictures to a localized flash mob website with the location of the trash build up.
Once a week a trash build-up site is chosen from the pictures of the citizen that reported trash.
The flash mob meets at the chosen site.
The flash mob removes all the trash and then films the activity, all within an hour or so.
The filmmakers then up load their videos of the flash (trash) mob onto YouTube to
raise awareness of litter and trash.
The flash mob filmmakers do audits of the trash removed, giving insight to the types of trash
that litter our communities, our roads, our rivers and our oceans.
The idea is to be able to replicate this idea in any community with massive positive impact.
Installing organic orchards with flash mobs.
This is how I imagine it happening: Let's say we are going to plant an orchard. I envision participants going
to YouTube and watching a video on how to plant a tree.
At the end of the video, participants would take a short comprehension test.
After taking the test, they would receive a reservation number giving them a time and place
to attend and participate in the flash mob orchard planting.
An orchard is planted by the same people who one day may eat from it.
Harvesting crops with flash mobs.
Imagine the picking of an orchard or any variety of hand pick able crops using flash mobs.
Of course, a YouTube video with a comprehension test would be a must for sanitary reasons
and picking methods. I imagine the flash mob picking could be choreographed to be graceful
(of coarse all filmed) so as not to damage the fruit or vegetable. A slow motion act of grace.
The act of participating in a flash mob gives the individual a feeling of being a part of some thing bigger
than oneself; a feeling of belonging. A sense of connection to the world and the people in it.
Thank you for your readership and following.

If we are going to rebuild this nation we should start by cleaning up our work
Trash in our communities
Trash is building up in many communities across our nation.Large amounts of
trash is built up, along our roads, on our river banks and on our ocean beaches.
Storm drains run first to our creeks and rivers and then to the sea.
On our east coast cigaret buts all but pave side walks and choke storm drains.
Fast food wrappers, straws, plastic bottles, plastic grocery bags, drink cups and
plastic wrappers of every kind have infested our country.This same trash slowly
leaches out its poisons in to our water ways and fertile grounds. Ask not what
bitters the waters that where once sweet.
I am a carpenter by trade. When i start a new project i start by cleaning up my
work area and organizing my available resources, then i start building or
repairing, what ever the case may be.This proses of clean up and organization
gives me more accurate information to plan and lay out my project and is key to
efficient completion.These same principles simple as they may be will work with the
same efficient magic in rebuilding and repairing our nation. Lets clean up our
nation first and then see where we are, make a new plan.
Just because you cant see under the ground dose not mean nothing is happening
down there.The soil, the earth filters the water that makes it way down in to our
aquifers and then eventually becomes the water we drink and bathe our children
and our selves in.We are 98% water.The food we eat, plant or animal, is entirely
dependent on water.There is nothing more important than water to every one
and every thing.! This is a naked absolute truth.If we pollute water we are
betraying the one universal truth we know.The one true truth i know.Have a little
respect please, i am begging you,for the love of everything.Don't half hazerdley
cast your trash about, contain it,take responsibility for it,take ownership of your
community,clean it, it will repay your spirit with a feeling of belonging.You will
be taking a stand and as you share your experiences with others you will be
embraced by the community and others will take a stand with you.The sky's the
limit friend.Rebuild and rebirth your community,Discover and create a new
language of self respect.
The first step.
I don't just come begging,I have a potential solution
Have you ever heard of a flash mob? (If not Google it.)
Using flash mobs in conjunction with a website for smart phone citizen reporting,
Flash mobs organize and chose the location and time to remove trash from
the worst effected areas the citizens have reported.
With video cameras trash bags and grabbers the flash mob meets,
removes the trash and films the whole clean up in one hour.
That same day the filmmakers post the videos of the cleanup on YouTube
to raise awareness.
The added positive effect is that each participant gets to mingle and
strengthen there community first hand,creating a environment of a
human sense of belongingIf we are going to rebuild this nation we should start by cleaning up our work area... more
A diverse group of residents recently took over a subway car on the Los Angeles Red Line in hopes of sharing a little love with stressed and anxious commuters. The members of this love flash mob, including children, mixed-in with the unsuspecting crowd, and let loose with one of the most inspiring 'random' acts of unity that I've seen in a long time.

CodePink Austin, along with allies from Veteran's for Peace and Women in Black staged a Don't Buy War "freeze" at Barton Creek Mall on Saturday, December 3rd. The strategically chosen mall location was between the Santa photo station and the Gamestop store, which prominently advertises the 'Modern Warfare 3' video game.
The goals were to raise awareness about the continuing wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, to educate shoppers about the costs (both human and economic) of the wars, and to dissuade parents from purchasing war toys. The creative action was well received by shoppers, and several veterans approached the group to thank us. All was peaceful until mall security and APD arrived, and an APD officer brutally attacked a young woman who had joined the group spontaneously. She was seriously beaten and ended up with three cracked ribs and bruises all over her body!

Flash mobs used to be so much fun. A group of people would arrange to meet in a public place at a particular time and would perform a song or a dance number or some other form of entertainment very suddenly and without warning.

All over the country, young people are using social media and other forms of communication to coordinate shocking large scale crimes.Flash mobs used to be so much fun.
