A flash mob with a difference:

I think Guy Gorton would have enjoyed this if he was in London that day.

I remember flash mobs from about 15 years ago. They weren't funny then. Nowadays people simply ignore them.

I'd like to have been at the brainstorming session for "How do we raise awareness for whatever is it this thing is about". Someone said flash mob as a joke and it was the top idea!

I assume you didn't actually watch the video? The Marylebone commuters
certainly didn't ignore this flash mob. And, no, it wasn't funny, or meant
to be.

He would indeed! I have seen all sorts f events there but this is
probably the best. I started using M'bone in January 1969 which is a
frightening span of nearly 49 years. Infrequent visitor now.

I had rather hoped it was you playing the organ!

I did check to see if Georg Friedrich had any connections to
Marylebone, and it seems that he lived just outside the area, about a
mile from the future station, at 23 Brook Street. Had he lived long
enough to travel by train, Marylebone would indeed have been his local
main line station (Paddington, Euston and Victoria are all further
away).

Absolutely perfectly wonderful.

We moved to the Vale of Aylesbury in 1960, and started using the
trains into Marylebone, and to Rugby, shortly after that.

Question: back in the day the BR ticket office was roughly where M&S
is today. Last time we. my spouse and I, were at Marylebone there was
new ticket office backing onto the platform area,

Was this built new, or moved from elsewhere? It has a very classic
look about it.

Not funny, but joyously serious. And, unless the cameramen and
editors managed to mislead us, much enjoyed by many of the public.
Did it benefit Syria? Hopefully, it did - help is sorely needed.

I came across the thread by Recliiner early this morning before going
to church to play the organ for the first Sunday in Advent. It gave
me inspiration even though the message was rather different - and I
did not play any Handel but did play Bach and did try to encourage the
congregation to sing joyfully - which they did..

The Hallelujah Chorus was ruined for me many years ago, when I saw a
comedian singing "Mozzarella" instead.
