I've posted some unofficial guidelines for tonight on my blog:

I’ve devised some unofficial “rules” (you can think of them as some unwritten guidelines for tonight’s festivities):

  • only Flash photography will be allowed

  • Music selection will be limited to the musical works of Grandmaster Flash, Flash. Bat, and Flash (particularly tracks featured of the album “In the Can”), and any other artist who has the word “flash” in his name

  • Clips from the old “Flash Gordon” serial will be projected on the main screen

  • Anyone who admits to having seen the 1997 film Flash and liked it will get a prize

  • somebody will incidentally flash someone

  • all Flash Lite-enabled cell phones will be illuminated with a flashlight

  • There will be copies of the Flash comic book available for reading at your leisure

  • A flash mob will spontaneously gather outside Resistor Gallery at 08:30:06 PM tonight (Aug. 30, 2006) and experience/discuss flashbacks

  • Flash memory will be the only type of digital storage media allowed in the vicinity. If someone has a digital storage device that does not use flash memory, the item must be publicly identified as such and held out

  • there will be a karaoke showdown to see who is able to sing the 1980 song “Flash” by Queen the best

  • At least two people will spend half the night competing for the title of the ultimate master of Flash Flash Revolution
