Posted:Maybe they're too awed to speak.No news is good news etc (unless there's some form of strike action at the printers. In which case no news in necessary and should be endured until all demands are met or an adequate compromise can be reached).

Posted:I went over to pozees and watched some parts of it and I sure am glad people have advanced. It was a good movie, very entertaining. The cover is one of the shirt designs and the best one at that. Sage was good, I think she won cause the ass shot, but that's my own oppinion. She was good, I'll admit that, I think if pozee entered with a real clip he may have won. Bassman... PROPS!!! You are the shit at juggling, awesome!!! Your switches were nice but I didn't like the super jumps, or whatever they were. Nice back flip (wink wink)as I said, I haven't sen it all but I'm looking forward to it. I just watched the people I was looking forward to. Robert michael, you little lurker, I liked you're COL1 performance better. You seemed to flow nicer in that one then in COL2, just a little constructive criticism. Great to watch none the less.Eric

Its about talent, not make up or costumes.

Posted:I just got my copy. First of all, I want to thank Malcolm for putting it together--it's a great asset for twirlers in general. There's a lot of talent on there, a lot of different styles, and it is fun putting faces to familiar names.It's fun to watch just as entertainment, and I know I'll be studying "how did he/she do that?" as well. And maybe next time, I'll send in a submission.

Posted:Yea! Malcolm is (once again) officialy the man. Oh yes, once again...no, wait, that is not quit all...the COL2 video is like an "order of magnitude" better than the first one, and I liked the first one. Ya know what I'm sayin'? I only have one problem, I know it is an hour long, but it only seems like ten minutes tops. They say "time flies when you are having fun" but this is rediculus. I just watched it twice (in a row). Oh, wait, I forgot to mention the music, VERY NICE, hypnotic, heck, I still got that song (that starts at Cassandra) stuck in my head (and liking it!). scale of 1-10.... its a 12.Good job, Malcolm...you da man!

Posted:Oh yea, I forgot to mention. I realy like the "gratuitouse" slow motion shots! Some things you just cant see unless it is slow-mo, and it tends to be breath taking when it is used in the right places during a run (which, luckily, there were a lot of opportunities to use).

Posted:I got my video today and I was impressed. I think this is better then COL1 video. I hope next year we can have a COL3 competition. It would be exciting to see how much talent/ performance skills improve in a year.

Posted:I got my copy this morning, and although I only had enough time to watch the first few people before I had to go to work, it's damn good so far.I've got a hell of a long way to go before I'm anywhere near that good, but at least now I have something to aim for

Perhaps ill take a pen and paper and do some close examination :P

Posted:Got mine today! Only had time to whiz through it once before work, but wow! Jaw dropping stuff! VAST improvement over the first vid in terms of vid-quality, performances and music.I alternated between awe at the outstanding skills on display and despair that I shall never be that good! Huge respect to all.And as for Sage... words fail me, a well deserved winner! Awesome routine.PS I got my first ballchains in the same package, wahey! Spent 10 minutes deliberately trying to tangle them and watching them separate themselves again. Joy!
