Posted:grr.

i promised myself this wouldn't happen.

but unfortunately, as happens every year, col filming and editing happens in our busiest period. in may and june we prepare for our entire year, and most espescially glastonbury, which we twist until its our biggest show every year.

and so, once again, i'm going to fail to get a vid in. the main reason being that all the footage i tried to get of the edinburgh crew failed to come out with any decent shots beyond about thirty seconds. my fault for not taking extra lighting; also if we'd filmed in twighlight like id wanted to instead of everyone milling around for half an hour getting dipped and the lile.... grumpblegrumblegrumble. ubblol(at self)

so i wish all contestants the best of luck, and go for the broken record style; as used by josh, myself and a few others....

anyone else having this problem?

love

'cept i suppose i don't really have a very valid reason for not getting it done. just been kinda busy and putting it off. i'm sure i could have made time, but alas, i just procrastinated as per usual frown

Posted:Im not getting anything sent in this year. Its really the first year that I had a chance since I only started spinning about 3 months before last year's due date. Unfortunately, like you other guys, Ive been too busy/lazy to get good footage. Next year will be it, though. Im gonna go all out and win 1st prize rest assured smile Ill shoot 20 hours of footage if need be to get a perfect routine.

Posted:cole, i think you should hit col hard with what would start as a spinning entry, but then have juggling balls spring loaded in your sleaves, and then fire them out midd spin, throwing off your poi, and starting your juggling!

would be very sweet biggrin

only a thought though!
