Has anyone ever considered putting together an outtakes section on the next COL tape? Not to encourage people trying to mess up, but anybody that's been taping themselves knows they've got a lot of foul-ups on tape (some pretty priceless) not really bad burn types, but the funnier kind, like when you socre a "Sack tap" with a pair of zuni's, or the like.anyway, just an idea, as im sure there is some funny footage out there.

Ok, a couple of comments from me. I haven't yet seen any COL (I promise to soon, though! ), but just some general things.

First of all, I am glad that the editing will be allowed. As Nomad and NYC said, my main thing is to see something entertaining and to challenge me to do difficult stuff.

One thing to keep in mind is that this is not a realistic thing no matter what. Someone can do a performance without any cuts, but if this is their 75th attempt at the same combinations of moves, it still isn't really "realistic".

However, the two methods do lend themselves to different things. One for the overall combination and flow into things. For the other, you can do not only interesting cutting of tricks, but switch between locations and such.

I'm not sure that they require separate categories really, but I don't mind a huge amount.

I'd almost rather that there was no contest aspect at all to it. On the one hand it does encourage people to do their best, but getting onto the video seems like a contest in and of itself. I dunno if it really needs that much more competitive spirit. I think I'd rather it be more like a skating video with lots of random cool stuff put to music. But I doubt that is going to change, so I'll leave it at that...

One thing.. you mentioned a minimum of 1 minute? Would it be possible to have people submit stuff shorter than that? It wouldn't be eligible for winning the contest, but could be pretty neat as filler between performances if someone just wanted to show off one or two cool tricks.

Do you think there should be more specifics in terms of what toys can be on it? It sounds like general spinning stuff can be on there, and fire stuff. What about a non-lit diabolo, or ball juggling, etc? I have some light-up yo-yos that could look interesting, but I don't know if that'd really be appropriate for this...?

Lastly, while the giving of a tape to everyone that sends footage is a very nice gesture, I'm not sure that it is really practical. I mean if there are already a lot of people sending stuff in, I can only imagine it'd go up an order of magnitude since they know they are getting something free. I mean even I would be tempted to send in 5 minutes of me doing the weave just to get a free tape, even though I think my morals would restrict me in the end.

Interestingly stated.
To put my 2 cents in, I think deep inside everyone, wants to know who is the best. That is life. Fire is an art and an element. Together all of us appreciate what we go through. COL lets those of us who have a competitive side live a little.

I am entering not to win, but to let others see what I can do. Now my associate is entering to win.
Im sure everyone enters for one reason or another, but its not always just to win.
I use to think I was the best girl out there until I seen Sage. The woman is good. I am close, but still miles away.

What will you do? Will you enter or just comment on it?

I know everyone has had a few bottles of something mixed up from under the sink, but where in the #$)* did the Zebra's come into play?

And no he went topless too, he had what appeared to be an armore vest on with flames coming from his waist up.

that's no zebra, that's a gazelle. & Jif was the Daddy of the detergants, now it's called Zif & I think they've taken out the active ingredients.

Hey, where did the floor go?
