clap wow



You'll find more posts to more links to video clips in every post I make in this thread - Look out for 3 angels angel angel angel

smile



Todays video for your pleasure:

Baton twirling - Sheryl Welykholowa, Jill Ford, Stacy Singer - Triple Threat

Linky linky



Details: On stage probably 2002 . A super tight performances from world champion standard baton twirlers.

Amazingly talented trio including Stacy Singer doing monster rolls - a move apparently invented for her and remamed matrix by the edinburgh staff twirlers.

See Glitzy stuff, 3 baton juggling, contact sequence and some qualilty strutting about.



If you like this, make a post below. If you have any requests, I can post them too. biggrin

oh, I thought monster rolls refered to the entire neck spins and matrix and frontside stuff. If you'd said it was delinated, I might have used that name instead. eek "the now legendary" - Kaskade
"the still legendary" - Kaskade

I spunked in my friend's aquarium and the fish ate it. I love all fish. Especially the pink ones. They are my bitches. - Anon.

Thanks for posting Drew



as for requests - erm, can you sort me out those three for an evening? wink



Failing that some more of the same please smile



or a video of yourself ubbangel



Matrix is a cool name - however "monster roll" has its qualities.... maybe we need to create a monster move to suite it smile "...We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing......."

Michelle Smith Supergood baton Twirler Canada

Video Linkies:
The fist link is my favorite:
Freestyle
Solo
Doubles

Expect to see: Lovely routines, and super hot technical baton twirling. I like the way that she keeps the batons flowing a lot more than other baton twirlers tend to do, and she doesn't break plan soo much either smile


8 times represented Canada at the world baton twirling championships!!
Heres a profile about her:
https://www.albertabaton.com/page19.htm#Michelle%20Smith

And she is responsible for one of my all time favorite stick clips
the clip is "michellefreestyle2003.mpeg" or
"michellefreestyle2003shithotbatongoth.mpeg" !!

But I don't have an active link
It's What happened to this one in just 2 years? She got cool ! ubblol
and still kept winning,
you'll find some of that clip in meg's Stolen spinning - the goth with the pentagram on the back of the costume smile

Are any of you staffer types in contact with the baton twirlers?

It shouldn't be that hard to get a contact email.

This lady should be invited to the EJC smile Getting to the other side smile

Thanks again for posting, Saturdays super link:



Well seeing as that was 2 lots of Stick links, I think it has to be something for the poi fans



click to gallery:

https://www.indrayoga.com/Gallery.htm



Expect to see: 2 ladies, of indra - lots of wiggling/dance/ not technical spinning smile



I like the chilled out yoga stuff at the begining, thats fab

Personally I'm not so keen on the trashy pornstar stuff later on in the clip, its not the style I dig.

It kinda makes me laugh biggrin but I guess thats what sell over there in the US of A.

Definately High quality filming and production and hence earn a place in Drews Super video blog.

cool smile

Sunday Special. Not poi. not staff, but

Bees fighting - Hold on for the surprise ending as to how the little bees fight back against the big hornets!!

Then tell me, how the hell did that evolve??



National Geographic News 2005 Number 1 video clip:

Bees Battle "Hornets From Hell"



"A small but highly efficient killing machine lurks in the mountains of Japanthe Japanese giant hornet. The voracious predator pumps out a dose of venom with an enzyme so strong it can dissolve human tissue. Just a handful of these hornets can kill 30,000 European honeybees within hours. Watch an attack of giant hornets on a beehive, and learn the surprising secret that Japanese honeybees use in their defense."



Here's the rest of the Nat Geog top 10:

Happy Monday, and what does this Monday turn up on Drews video Blog?
This nostaligic old clip will charm all the silent movie buffs.
A Historic film from the pathe News Archive showing Col. Sgt George Simpson in 1933
Flag poi and club swinging in the UK.

Follow this link, and you should find a free preview low res download at the bottom of the page:
https://www.britishpathe.com/thumbnails.p...club%20swinging

In order to download you have to go through the whole basket thing. but It won't cost any money, and its well worth it as you can get a lot more historic videos of all kind of interesting things - a great site to waste days on. theres at least 1 more club swinging clip.
https://www.britishpathe.com

So for a couple of days I have put the little puppie up in my gallery here:
https://www.homeofpoi.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=829
catch it while you can.

"Since the world's beginning, we've all searched for that "youngish feeling". "Club swinging" keeps this 67 year-older young!" Elderly man stands in front of a curtain in the Pathe studio demonstrating his club swinging technique. "Hard as nails and fit as the proverbial fiddle through club and flag swinging" (says Geo. Simpson, late Col Sgt, Middlesex Regt.)"

Closer view of George as he swings a Union Jack and a Stars and Stripes around his head - very patriotic! L/S of George flag swinging. "Slow-motion shows how complete these exercises are for the arms and shoulders"

Slow motion footage shows flags off to best effect. "Incidentally, the flags are not fastened to rods as they first appear, but just weighted with shot and roped - the speed keeps them taut." Another slow motion sequence.
______________________________________________________________________

OK, some other historical sources:
Over at "The Journal of Manly Arts"* ( https://ejmas.com/jmanly/
)we have:
Club swinging - (not video)
https://ejmas.com/pt/ptart_dick_0101.htm
https://ejmas.com/pt/ptart_treat_0501.htm
https://ejmas.com/pt/ptart_ymca_0401.htm

and stick fighting:
https://ejmas.com/jmanly/articles/2001/jmanlyart_a-wp-w_0901.htm
https://ejmas.com/jwma/articles/2000/jwmaart_wolf_0500.html

*Not wishing to be associated with some of the more "fance figures with club swinging" which I guess will be somewhere in "The Journal of Girly Arts".

Enjoy
Drew smile

Mmmmmmmmmmmm.... ubblove

They didn't have the old shows up last time I looked... (some dubious clubswinging umm, but the horses are great!) Nice to see the progression, how they've kept the energy, but made things much more pure and clear.

I tried to ask them if they had a full dvd, but they never replied frown
