Posted:here is some feedback...

I watched your video yesterday and tried to do contact staff straight away but you make it look way too easy!!!
It seems that you had very good control of the staff unlike some other videos i've seen. YOU would actually not burn yourself if the staff was on fire. Cheers for the inspiration.
Sorry, dont have anything bad to criticise.


hm, pinecones, my favourits!

Posted:Yes I agree. The vest shorts combo was un-flattering. And shock horror, it's not your backyard!

In toher news: Those moves mostly start with or go to reverse fishtails don't they? Why have you not connected them all together? Plus make the transition out of the foot fishtail more smooth, (good editing, but you can tell you're about to grab it... smile )

The fishtail, propellor, fishtail, is only done on one side, (the front) you could do a propellor behind you as well.

What's your other arm doing? It doesn't seem to be posing.

Other than that it's really good. Too many fishtails thou... smile

i have a vid of Ben continually throwing his sticks on the floor whilst trying to pretend he's doing it on purpose. Quite good for a giggle tongue Found it on the Soton site i think. Doesn't have any music on it though frown

Posted:Well as with many other aspects of the amorphous entity we know and love as Ben-ja-men it's ludicrously bigger/grander than it actually needs to be and won't actually cram into an email....


I shall endeavour to try and remember it on the 15th.

*insert flabigastered graemlin here*

methinks ud have a copy of the rubbish unedited footage that josh took of me before i left for the yoo kee im hoping my bang bang video is on an old backup cd somewhere ill get a copy to strugz if i can find it.

chris ill add some gay poetry into my next video along with the unicorn just for you, unless i find the props to do the special video for drew first in which case the unicorn and poetry will have to wait.

on a completely unrelated note even if youve never done fishtails or staff you can criticise my movement as to what looks pretty and what looks awkward (eg the foot fishtails and the whole leaning back thing) comeon ppl help me out here!!!

Written by: (edited)Me
Very nice, I like how you edited in all your best bits rolleyes

Most liked bit - Fishtails into isolated (erm...or is it called propellor?) back into fish tails = very nice


but


Fishtail into foot fishtail and back was quite sloppy. You over balanced lots so work on controlling the pass from hand to feet a bit better (was a well recovered mistake tho) . Infact come to Sheffeild next week and get some decent foot fishtails lessons you're obviously not practising enough now you're back in Ozshire


Fishtail to neck roll to fishtail was quite nice but the finish was a little...erm..."stiff"...so smooth out the ending a little, don't rush it back onto your arm


All the rest was brill, as usual biggrin


*hugs*

Posted:nice man, i liked the drop to foot and kick to hand, that was the best trick for me, make it look very fluid, maybe you could do a kick up type move, so from left hand to right foot, from right foot to left foot, and left foot to right hand?

on a side note, nice to see my sticks are making you better wink

are they still with org grip?

Posted:Yep a nice little vid really like the angle roll (bastard) and the music wasn't Queen which adds a whole new dimention to all videos...

Anyway moving on to acturl real criticisum and not just general abuse i'd say do the fish tails on the back of the hand and not on the wrist just because i think it looks better.


Maybe I should change this too something abit nicer, humm no I still think your all Ccensoredt
