Posted:Sorry people after last COL5 I am not willing to make another one. Please do continue to share on the net as you do and link to your videos in the video forum.



I will do some other project instead, hopefully with Pele.



PS This is a sad moment for me too as I have really enjoyed putting these together hug

Posted:you'd best forget about col for a bit...



to best illustrate this, let me tell a parable.



An obviousely drunk, naked pirate walks into a pub, dressed in nothing, except a big hat, and a pair of boots, and a steering wheel hanging from his eek... HE walks up to the bartender, slaps gold coin down on the bar, and says, "Gimme a drink! Rum!"



The bar tender hands him the drink, and doesn't say a word.



The pirate downs it and says, "I'll have another!"



The bar tender gives him another rum, but this time he asks the pirate.... "Excuse me sir, but did you know you have a steering wheel hanging from your eek



The pirate says, "Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I know, it's driving me nuts!"

Posted:ha ha. I get it.

I'm just super excited about the COL6. I just looked at the line up and the Czechs are in and Mexico and Singapore and some of my old faves like Datana and One Wheel Dave. Yayy!!!!

My fire sister, Lindsay and I were talking about making a black light video, but alas we slacked. Hopefully next year, but in the meantime, I really want to get a copy of COL6 and I'm just soooo thrilled that Malcolm didn't cancel this wonderful, amazing, inspiring record of some of the best spinners in the world.

woo hoo! biggrin

Posted:I've just finished watching COL 5 and have 3 and 4 sitting at home waiting, tempting me to sit and admire for hours and hours...

I wanted to say thank you to Malcolm and to everyone who has volunteered time, effort and resources into producing something for the videos.

I find these videos inspiring, funny, fabulous, amazing, and something to be viewed with the joy that goes with twirling.

I don't mind if you are techy plus or simple and flowy and only do 'circles' - it's all part of the rich variety of spinning and people who spin - I love it ubblove ubblove

I don't mind if you spin in your bedroom or on a beautiful beach surrounded by fire, the fact that you are playing, love what you are doing and are prepared to share that with us - is much appreciated hug

thanks clap bounce2 bounce thankx

I think there should be a $1 USD entry fee, or something like that. Then, everyone who submitted, whether or not they were accepted can vote and the winner can get a HoP gift certificate in the amount of however many submissions. That way the people who get to vote are the ones who contributed, which is fair, and I do not know ANYONE who would go through the trouble and expense of making an entry and not being able to drop 1 extra dollar. For all those folks in England it less than a pound! That way there can be a competetive spirit, and a prize, and still not be a fiscal downfall for Malcolm.

I am not sure on the policy on multiple submissions, but anyone submitting multiple entries would pay for eac submission, but only get one vote.

What does everyone else think? I think this is a good compromise, and I knwo that I wouldnt mind sending an extra buck in with a submission, I cant imagine anyone would...



yay!!! hug great idea m8...that way everybody is happy biggrin

Posted:Although $1 is a trivial amount, it will be highly inconvenient for some if it has to be submitted by the normal means ie those who don't have a credit card, can't get the paypal/switch thing to work etc.



Hopefully if there was an admission fee this would be taken into account by allowing personal cheques.



However, personally I don't like the idea; given that generally there seems to be only around 60 entrants pre year, the resulting prize isn't going to be that great, and if the entrance fee is raised to give a better prize, then some people won't enter.

I can't wait to order it (I need to wait till I've got my student loan through).

Well done Malcolm and everyone who got on.

*Crosses fingers for having something worthy of a future DVD*

I'm actually drooling thinking about it now. I can't wait for it.

Seems the coverslips for the DVDs were all printed on cardboard instead of glossy paper. So new covers are currently being done. New expected release date is 7th October.
