The seraphs were going through the same procedure…keeping tabs on the ignoble galactic inhabitants. But then, a stark revelation dawned upon them, their discernment, at its peak. Euphoria, their most vital possession and obsession, was in peril, the risk of losing it ever imminent. The impregnable art of life, unexplored until then was now being explored full Monty by a gathering on a planet, its incumbents called, “The Earth”. “Heaven on earth” they observed. The chronograph read 1996.
It was a Synod of elegant beings, a Council of accomplished homo sapiens, a celebration of life and arts, christened, LA Fest.
On the day of this annual festival, the heavens stand still, a silent witness to the unfolding of new dimensions to the cultural praxis.
This year too, the celestial conclave continues, its legacy spanning over two decades.
And now, it’s your turn to engage in the pantheon of wonders.
Embark on a journey to transcend the horizon of elemental forces.
Elysium awaits you …
The balance in our universe is in the very harmony it sustains. To synchronise with the beats of your creation is not the task, but to resonate to the beats of a thousand hearts is quite a challenge! Realign your senses to a whole new level; where the beats of life blend into the music of art. Balance is truly the quintessence, making a thousand hearts race in the process, is just a sideburn. Harmonize with the senses and elevate them to the Elysium of your creation. Teach them what it truly means to be in 'Harmony'...
If you are reading this for the second time Hi! againWe were asked to explain what Block N' Tangles is but this clearly seems to be neither the time nor the place.
The fact that you are reading this message is highly depressing and disappointing because it means that the message has not reached where we intended it to.
"Irrespective of the circumstances and the quandaries* you find yourself in, be content with what you have" said, your granny, while we were standing behind her.
By the way, who are we????
We are your exceptionally merciful guides to one hour of distinction, who would never intentionally walk you into a ditch.
AND this is…
Block N' Tangles, an annual phenomenon that takes place in the harsh and cold winter months of June and July. Four different permutations of humans (let’s assume) called "teams" from different "schools" are pitted against each other (Now, that’s how you use quotes…right?).
AND what you have to do is, split the sides of the people watching you, crack their ribs and make them slap their knees. (Literally)
Quip and the world will join you in merrymaking.
Be dull and the world will snore with us.
If you can go along with these criteria then Block is the bread to your butter, Rachel to your Chandler; coffee to your large Haldron Particle collider and sea anemone to your Batman. Well, you catch the drift, right?
Winter is coming.
*This word explains itself…
** And is a conjunctive word used to join 2 sentences or to talk about 2 things at the same time.
Greetings earthly low lives... This is your alien overlord... If you are reading this you have just been named the co-conspirator in an intergalactic plot. No... Don't press the button. Yes of course we can see you. There's no turning back from this. The weight on your shoulders is heavy. You'd have to pass through an intense screening which will test your mettle and give us proof that you are indeed a specimen worth experimenting on... Or you could just smile and look pretty. Either way, once inducted into our specimen board you really have gone too far to come back. You will be displayed under lights. Your worst fears brought in front of you. All your good "qualities" decimated in front of you. We look forward to this... Live long and prosper....... or not.........
To be THE sub-aerial modification,
Read, Perceive, Obey.
There will be (at least) four rounds. Let’s just say you have to adapt to survive.
If you don't know why you are here, read on and try to comprehend. If you are still reading this, well let’s just say we warned you!
And now the question arises, where are you? If you feel you are suited for this, you already know the answer. Your reading of this is just a mere formality. If you don’t, your chances are getting slimmer by the second.
If questions keep you up and if answers are what you have, then the probability of your being right is high. But then again it’s just a probability, and as you should have guessed by now “probability” and “lucky strikes” are not what you are here for. If you are wondering what’s up with all the 'ifs', then forget this ever happened and move on. You are at the wrong place.
If you don’t, if you know more questions than the answers to them, keep going. Now coming to the question which probably deserves some attention here. This is not where we ask you questions this is where ... we demand answers !!
Music is your conversation.
Dance is your language.
Its poetry with arms and legs
You don't talk. You express yourself...
You are not part of a crew. You are the member of a family ...
Let your body do the talking...
You think on your feet...
You think with your feet ...
This ain’t any street fight...
This is where emulation gives way to innovation and novelty...
From the cadence of penguins to the Bravo bob, earthly incumbents have made it their universal language.
And, now it’s time to articulate yours It’s time to battle it out and let the world rock to your beat...
Photography. The mercenary draws out his gun, trains it on his prey with unnerving audacity, and pulls the trigger to eliminate the unwary.
He misses the target… he misses the bounty. Same story, different scenario.
With the camera slinging around your neck, you capture that moment that does not last more than a second.
You miss the shot…you miss your ticket to stardom. Welcome to Shoot at Sight 2015.
It’s your chance to shape a million perceptions, your chance to transcend mere oblivion.
It’s your turn to be eagle-eyed.
Let the shutterbugs snap away.
The Labyrinth … A mythical maze filled with your worst nightmares. Just a crazy Greek myth… Or is it?
Get prepared to be unprepared. Face challenges the likes of which you have never experienced before. Sharpen your intellect to be your blade. The labyrinth awaits you.
Are you ready to believe in yourself, to risk everything, to take that leap of faith and to double down?
For the scholastically able, the mystery should unravel itself. For the other less- gifted lot, read on and try to perceive.
In the most basic sense this event is a race… WOAH! Hold on there, sport jockeys. This is an inter-school cultural event not some sports meet. This event requires you to use muscles that are of a higher level than those in your legs. It’s time to exercise your grey matter. That’s right, you’ll have to use your brain for this event…
All you have to do is solve some riddles. The solution of one will lead you to the location of the next. Solve all the riddles in time to reach the finish line and hog the glory for yourself…
Well, if only life was that simple!
This isn’t just any race. You don’t just finish first to win…
Welcome to The Martingale Hustle…
