Posted:So everyone seems to want to see bloopers, yet no one wants to be part of a video compiled of our not so greatest moments. I know we would all think the humiliation factor would be astounding, right? (I do)But, if we are all on it then it wouldn't be so bad, besides, get the video, wait a year and then watch it when it'll be funny, right?Malcolm says that he doesn't have permission from anyone to use the "blooper" footage. He also said that some of the stuff looked dangerous, which I agree isn't always funny.So what I am thinking is this...if, and this is a **huge** if at this point in time, I decide to send in a video for the next compilation, I will also include footage of my rehearsals, which must be pretty damn funny really. My rehearsals are unlit primarily, so the danger effect is mainly how I beat myself up for stupid mistakes.What do you think? Who would be interested in a completely unlit blooper video?No offense to anyone but I would rather see that than a COL3, simply because, while watching styles is very cool, sometimes I can only see the weave so many times. Part of the thrill of fire is being there, and video can take that away. But bloopers are just fun, laugh at yourself and with your friends in a completely safe way (unless you are using beaming poi!)And Malcolm, not to make more work for you...so if you want help, I am sure I can figure something out. I just think this is such a good idea. It is so easy to learn from watching other people. If you can see how they mess up then when you find yourself in the same situation it is easier to find a solution. This, I think will also help people to feel more at ease with thier own spinning, as so many feel inadequate. I also think it would help to keep ego's to a minimum in some cases.Anyway, I wanted to pull this away from the competition thread so that mode of thinking can stay on track.I am curious to see how you all feel about this though...Night!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:i agree that a large part of the thrill of spinning is being there, but personally i'd prefer to see a COL3 than a blooper reel because i love watching other peoples styles... that being said, i'll contribute to a blooper reel, cause i know i make enough stupid mistakes..

Seriously, I don't think spinning bloopers are going to be that 'hot'

Although I agree you can only see the weave so many times, I reckon you can see people drop their staff or set themselves on fire a lot less before getting bored.So maybe if anyone does have something awful happen while being filmed it can be whacked onto the end of COL3?

I think a whole vid of bloopers would get kinda dull, that's why I suggested a tack on at the end of COL3.But I agree that some bloopers may be dangerous, and I wouldn't want to think of anyone making silly mistakes on purpose.I guess a good judge would be to watch a funniest home video show and see if you are still laughing after the 10 crotch whack in a row.

Posted:You people never get tangled?Never do one too many spins and do a little disoriented?Never get stuck in ground work or a dance move?Never release before you should and find you or your tool in odd places (a tree...a bush..coming straight down on your head?)?Never have your strings/chains get wrapped around your hair? (I have seen this happen alot to people I have met and to myself)And the list goes on.......Truly I would pay to see someone set themselves alight with unlit tools (as per my original post) and if all the mistakes you all are making is crotch shots, then there are going to be alot less children in the world someday!!!

Hmmmm, and my idea of a blooper real is not just one mistake out take after another. You have to have the build up...so you have the moments of good spinning and then ruh-roh raggy. I could watch that for about 30 min.I think the circus music idea is hilarious!I don't know, it just seems to me that everyone is so serious about getting moves right, getting that 11 beat bhb weave and getting lost in the flow that this would lighten the spinning side of things up a bit, especially since it has been mentioned for *every* video comp that has been announced.I think the reluctance is people not wanting to show they make mistakes!!!

Posted:I don't think an entire blooper vid would be funny, but a segment at the end (perhaps mixed in with the credits - see Jackie Chan)could be humorus. Should I get a video togheter there will most defitely be some form of oopsie or alot of editing on my part.Perhaps we could have a pole on this?------------------'There is a fist pressing against anyone who thinks something compelling'

Posted:i never make mistakes either..I thought i did once, but i was wrong.I think they woul be funny. As long as the person wasnt seriously hurt, it should be ok.Like skateboarding and bmx bail videos. Those are the coolest.Just as long as you send in bloopers of yourself, and not some one else, i say go for it."S"

Posted:Hmmm...I know the funniest thing I do when practicing a new (or just difficult) move, is the faces I make. Hehe. A tape of my strange faces could at least keep you occupied for a minute. Then there's my "dancing" who knows why I even try...I think it's just habit. Still, I look quite silly. Personally, I think that a tape like this would be quite amusing. Just make sure that there are both screw ups and good moves. Start with a routine of good moves, that leads into the blooper. Just bloopers could be a bit much.Also...there could be a nice long section of crotch shots...one right after the other. Trust me...this is one of those things that will make you hurt in your sides while laughing. Especially if the person is a ham...and takes the shot well. The faces can be great...just as long as the person isn't hurt bad. Yeah.

Posted:Bloopers would be a brilliant idea. Almost every video for "extreem" activities has a bloopers section. The Totally Bored snow boarding videos all have bloopers as does every skate and BMX video I've ever seen. I saw a motor cycle stunt video caled Las Vegas Extreem that even had a bloopers section, and there was some crazy shit in that one.I seriously doubt that mankind will ever tire of seeing their fellow man take one in the floppy bits, or tire of seeing things (people) catch on fire. There is an old saying that goes: "It's funny 'cuz it's not me"Perhaps whom ever compiles the video footage could shoot all the participants an email asking permission for use, or you could just make the use of the individual's likeness in a bloopers reel a condition of video submission.

Posted:Pele, u are a genius (or we are all stupid).This is a great idea, that I strongly support, because it means even i might get on the COL things.Besides, if the Extreme Unicycling video has bloopers on the end, why can't COL???I do agree totally that a whole video would not be the way to go, and also, NO PRIZES FOR BLOOPERS.I really don't want people messing up on purpose to win things or gain notoriety. That's just not cool, and there are plenty of people I know who would do it.I vote for a bloopers vid at the end of COL3, official vote = 1 (cmon guys, vote away)PS you also have to vote with your wallet, and buy the video! possibly at a higher price because more editing work will have gone into it...

Seems to have good support.Ok, It will be done. Only with the permission of those that submit the blooper.They will get tagged onto end of COL3. I will email the people who I already have bloopers on file. OMG I have over 24 hours of tape to go through to find them again.Did anyone notice the bloopers I put at the end of the "Art of Poi" video? (Diane with the beamers??)

Posted:He he he, yeah a bloopers film would be kinda cool. I can see other peoples point tho about having it at the end of a vid.You ever watched a skateboarding video where they have loadsa trix then they play a few where they stak it? Maybe you should have it on that kinda basis. So u get a bit of both worlds. It would make the vid more interesting
