Well i'm just rendering up a copy of the uberOz video. Damn it's taken ages to make. And i've just realised 1 person who i have oodles of footage of and completely forgot to put in the video, juggler mark. DOH

Hmmm. Thing is i have so much footage that i couldn't face clipping it up with all the rest. I'll get in touch with him and maybe squeeze a few clips in this video and make a separate thing in the vj section, or something.

bugger,

But apart from that today went really well, after yesterday deciding i didn't like the video i'd made, it just wasn't clicking. But today i love it.

ps bill are you getting wibbles and tangles confused?

Well hello hello wavehello



People are starting to ask me for news of the second UberOz for 07, or more succinctly: 2UberOz7



The bad news is I am not organising anything early this year (too close to Woodford Circadia, and I need some day job $$ right now rather than another round of gratis event management!)



No one else seems to be putting hands up to organise one either, though we did have some talk about a Melbourne event. (If anyone wants to get something up in their home town, contact Bluecat for naming rights! smile )



BUT...



The good news is that I AM organising something for later in the year, that will incorporate a 2UberOz style event (residential, masterclasses in poi and staff) within a more ambitious event; an Australian Juggling Convention clap



I just bought the domain name ozjc.com as the crucial first step. (Telling you all about it is the crucial second step wink) Details will be going up online (and on HoP of course) as soon as I know them.



This inaugral OzJC will be in Brisbane, probably in late August/early Sept. That way we can finish with giant Fireworks on the River kindly laid on by the City Council! Unfortunately this is not in school holidays... having it in the Sept hols would be a clash with Common Ground. Also in August I will be able to get at least one certain International Superstar Guest Dude to visit our shores ubbrollsmile



OzJC will not necessarily be like any other Juggling Convention. It will be based across various parts of our lovely city rather than a self contained location. (I am very open for people taking the concept to other cities in future. That's why it's called OzJC rather than BrisJC...))



The 2UberOz-type bit will hopefully be at the same school/scout hall, for a weekend. The rest of the week will be in beautiful Brissy locations, and with some outreach/integration into the wider community. So it will be a great holiday as well as a great time for learning/sharing.

Plans are in an early stage.

Suggestions and offers of help are welcome! Anyone know much about marketing in Japan??

2uberOZ is looking fat, and it's just gonna be a part of something really spesh. mmm Brisbane.
Keep an eye out for some preliminary info on teachers real soon.

Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

believe it or not, I have a job as a software engineer and in order to lead a comfy sit down type life when I'm old and decrepit, I want to finish the contract I have with my company and gain a step on the career 'ladder'.

this would be my busking act:

"look I can do a triple matrix jesus steve!"



"and I can do it in reverse!"



"wooooo! Give me money!" wink ubbrollsmile

You know I just wanna go over there so I can act up, you can tell me off and I can sulk and call you mum sarcastically again... biggrin
