Well, instead of a Sparkly Party we are, OBVIOUSLY, going to have a Wedding Day, with Wedding Reception. We have the Carter nuptials and Lance Loves Michael to squee over, to be followed by a proper wedding-style feast with appropriate cake and the inevitable disco afterwards. So make sure you are ready to dress for the occasion* **. (Not sure if it will be on Saturday or Sunday, but presumably the weekend will be when we have the most people there.)

Now, I think it would be awesome to have someone take charge of being the Cheesy Wedding DJ. As (some of) you are already aware, we have the awesome video wall of awesomeness and can therefore have a video wedding disco. [ profile] nopseud has the nominated vids from last year, but we must be able to find more stuff that is fun to dance to. Does anyone fancy taking on the job of compiling them and putting them into an order that will get everybody up and dancing and exhausted at our Wedding Reception? (Note that this probably gives you the opportunity to influence the chosen music, if that is an incentive.)


Other footage. We are, naturally, expecting that the Backstreet documantAry will be available, with extras, to provide another evening's worth of joy, weeping, angry shouting etc, but that still leaves some time to be occupied.

It would be really nice—I think—to have a telly-watching Plan in place in good time, and we have three and a half months to get ourselves prepared, so.

Firstly, what would people like to watch besides the above mentioned? Particular concerts? Films which feature SDBs in any guise? (I yearn to watch 'The Bloody Indulgent', which looks like UTTER CRACK, but will it be possible?) Would an evening spent comparing 'On The Line' with 'Friends With Benefits' be an evening well spent, or not? Is anyone prepared to endure enjoy 'Harry and Max' one more time? 'Edison'? House of Carters? Dancing with the Stars (a dance-off?)? Nominations in comments, please!

I think we could also put together brief collections of stuff which we've enjoyed and would like to share with Camp. I have, indeed, been collecting Lance footage under the "Because He's My Favourite" label for a while. I can fill about 45 minutes with five, just five, choice pieces. Can anyone else do the same for Your Favourite? (ETA: I have also found some fun Joey stuff.) Ideally, using more recent-ish footage we haven't been watching for ever? (How about Justin's VMAs footage?) We could have a "Because He's My Favourite" evening. I don't expect everyone to have as much material available as I have, because Lance has been very visible of late, and good luck finding 45 minutes of recent Chris footage, but I'd love to see it! Or you could compile a bunch of stuff on a different Theme, like "Crossovers" or "Cute Moments with Babies/Animals" or "Incredibly weird songs which JC sings on"... whatever you like, including the Classics. Any volunteers?

Your Camp Sparkle needs YOU!

* Dress code for Lance's wedding was 'Royal Wedding meets Met Ball', so pretty much anything goes, and you probably cannot have too much sparkle

** Magnificent hats will have to be removed while watching the footage, unless you are in the back row.

Now, then.

With the laudable goals in mind of (a) spreading the load, and (b) giving everyone plenty of time to get things done, can I suggest it is time to start thinking about footage?

We could quite easily, as [ profile] nopseud has pointed out, watch a concert every evening, and this would probably be a fun thing to do. Possibly we could invent a game or two to go with the concerts we know by heart (a PopOd pixy stix game could be devastating...).

Various sparkly people have also appeared in films great and small, and I for one am *longing* to see Kevin as a vampiric crackhead (or, er, whatever he was supposed to be in whatever that was). I can, in addition, report that there are sighting of Justin's bum in that romcom he did, should anyone be interested. So, are there sparkle-infested films that we should have on the menu? And if so, who has a copy?

Mostly, though, I'm thinking that various of us might put together some footage that we maybe haven't seen that much of, or could happily see again if only we could remember it, or following particular themes. A 'Crossover Footage' theme would actually be quite workable, if anyone wants to do that. Lance and AJ singing BSB songs and doing the Bye Bye Bye dance together?

I myself have already begun to collect things that Lance has done/is doing, since he is being obligingly prolific these days. I propose to share these, on the theme of "Because He's My Favourite". Are there others among you who would like to compile a selection involving your favourite? I should think a maximum of 30 minutes would be reasonable, and less would not be a problem. We might have a Favourites Night, or something. I'm thinking everyone could bring along their own compilation on a USB stick, or otherwise convey it to [ profile] nopseud if that is her preference.

And of course, if you can think of and compile a different Theme, that sounds like fun to me.

So, people. What do we want to watch at Camp 2015? And who's up for a little footage work?

PS MTYG signups, closing soon! If you haven't signed up, or if you know someone who ought to sign up and hasn't, get on it!
