There’s no doubt in my mind that this is going to rapidly degrade into a circus… so many variables: how much media will show up? will there be “authorities” there to shoo the mobbers away? How many people can you CRAM into such a tight spot? Are the instructions going to be overly complicated? So many things to go horribly, horribly wrong.

Nonetheless, like the twisted, burning remains of a trainwreck, I’m drawn to it and, against EVERY OUNCE of my better judgement, will be participating in the chaos… See you there?Flash Mob #1
From: Flash Mob Austin
Location: See instructions below, Austin, TX
When: Monday, August 11, 7:20pm

Join an historical event right here in Austin!

If you don’t know what this is, then just follow the instructions, bring friends and just do it. Trust me, you will want to be a part of the buzz.

1)Set your watch to this link… [url=][/url]

2)If your birthday is between Jan. & June, go to Buffalo Billiard’s (6th & Brazos) by 7:20 pm. Don’t be late!

3)If your birthday is between July & Sept., go to Starbuck’s (6th &
Congress) by 7:20 pm. Don’t be late!

4)If your birthday is between October & Dec., go to Jamba Juice (NW corner 6th& Congress) by 7:20 pm. Don’t be late!

5)Bring an umbrella.

6) Look for a person in a Texas Flag Cowboy hat to get further instructions. Follow the instructions exactly and this will be a moment everyone will be talking about.

If you’re early, feel free to support your local businesses, but don’t feel obligated. You should blend in and not make it obvious you are part of a larger group.

PS. There is absolutely nothing remotely illegal involved, so bring your friends.

Questions? Check out and join… [url=][/url]
