Ok, so I have this Bucket List, and I'd like to cross one of the items off at this year's convention. So, I need YOUR help. Number 17 on my bucket list (of 100 items) is to start/lead/participate in a mass sing-a-long. However, not just ANY mass sing-a-long; a mass sing-a-long to "500 Miles (I'm Gonna Be) by The Proclaimers. Why that particular song? It's a nice song about camaraderie an whatnot, and what better place than ACen, where camaraderie is aplenty. So, I figured I'd try it out this year. Plus with the recent-ish popularity of the Doctor Who video which uses the same song as seen hereI thought maybe I could get more people involved. I was thinking of trying to pull it off somewhere outside as to not interfere with the goings on inside, but lets see if anyone would be game. Post your thoughts. Look for me at the con, I'll be the Irish guy with the ukulele.

Fantastic, tell your fellow con-goers. We have about three months to organize a start up group. I want to have the thing grow at the con itself so it remains semi-impromptu.

I prefer "I'll make a man out of you" from Mulan for a sing along, but 500 miles is okay too... I suppose. :)

Coincidentally, I can play that too. We'll make it a double whammy.

I agree, The Proclaimers are teh shizz. I'm actually quite excited now that people are actually responding haha. "Jam with the lobby band" is going to happen. Everything else, I've done already, and I THINK OD-ing on Pocky may be the best one on there, because. It's Pocky and it's delicious.
