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

Magic is deception, but its not a Lie nor is it dishonest, because in watching magician,
in esscence you, the audience, enter into a non-verbal agreement which goes something like this:
"The magician will deceive me (the audience) for the purpose of my entertainment."




exactly what I was getting at when I used the theater term 'suspension of disbelief.' What's even more interesting is when you get into stuff that requires the 'suspension of suspension of disbelief.' Professional wrestling for instance.. where you have to know that its fake to appreciate the storylines. Another example of something that people moan about being 'fake'... professional wrestling is not fake.. its about entertainment, and like most entertainment, it has premeditated outcomes.. which helps to push the story and actually get more people 'into' the story..
see http://www.projectbraintrust.com/
for more info on that.. specifically the philosophical project section.. haha..

anyway.. enough of my ramblings.. nice post drew..

Posted:Drew; I think we completely agree. I was just saying it sucks is all. I agree it's magic and it's legal and lies and deception are all part of the show.

But if I have to naturally assume that every 'volunteer' is a paid actor and every trick on TV is digitally altered then it becomes no fun.

I think it also COMPLETELY discredits actual slight of hand artists (who are truely artists) if I pretend to do the same thing but with digital effects.

OBVIOUSLY every magic trick is a trick.

I think there's a big difference between FILMING a magic show, and having the camera be integral to the show.

When I'm watching Penn and Teller on TV, I'm certain that the card tricks they're doing look just as good in person. That'd be an example of having a show flimed. Stupidass David Blane using camera tricks is a different story.

Here's the link to the website of

http://www.ayaco.org/aya.html
br>
Online home for the fantastic Mr Om with Katanka.

Poke around a bit and you will find their promo video Metamorphose

Lots of contact of all styles, bits of daftness bits of diabolo. But more importantly - a performace rather than just "doing tricks" and a lot of fun.



Ludovic/ Mr Om: is a good friend who came to stay with me last year, He is a legend of the contact world, incredibly tallented at 1 ball and multiball, and does yoga poses with a ball on top of his head!!

Katanka - I've never met, but all reports say that she is groovy too.

and now it seems also Miss Frix has joined the company smile wow

The awesome miss Frix (source of my fluffy pink ears who I owe 28 euro worth of good Karma from the last time I saw her at EJC2004.

Enjoy:)

PS - Mr Om is the only other person I know who can do any kind of contact with 11 balls - its in the clip

____________________________________________________________________



NYC Ditto. I completely agree, with that- although usually I'm not quite so eloquent.

It the same reason that I don't enjoy films like "crouching tiger, laughing hyena"

CGI fakery oh NO frown

Jackie Chan really doing hard crazy censored. oh YES biggrin (the mans is totally brilliant)

Rev: I think thats also part of why I don't relly watch wrestling either smile I can't "suspend my disbelief" this is the modern era of hyper-reality.

Cole, you better get in quick, there are 2 pairs left on my desk in white and 2 pairs in orange.

I don't care for wrestling at all... redneck soap-opera is how we refer to it... but one of the teachers on my thesis committee (also really good philosopher of mind and language) has fallen in love with it.. which is why him and others are doing work on this whole 'suspension of 'suspension of disbelief' '.. its not the suspension that you need for wrestling.. its the second order suspension.. which I guess presupposes that to some extent you can do the first order one.. haha.. I can't do it.. its still men in tights fondling each other.. at least japanese and mexican wrestling has acrobatics.. better sotrylines too I'm told.. a well.. not my cup-o-tea

In a strange coincidence they just had Penn and Teller do their "clear cups and balls" trick on TV this morning.

biggrin

I stand behind my love of them. I saw them a few times when I was 14 and have loved them ever since. Mostly because they hung out with me during the intermissions. biggrin

That's sooo cute, I'm gonna go to bed with a big Grin form that one.

Rodo - Thank you for the videos.Your poi should be with Olivier tomorrow or at worst monday
The Delay has been entirely my fault. And i'ts only because alphalight sent me a nice message every week to remind me, that you have got the poi at all.

alphalight: I will PM you with the rest ofthe details.

3 videos posted here today, and I certainly can't top that last one, So I'll be back tomorrow with something else - Something Very Very Gay.

(not qiute poi poi poi, but Flags Flags Flags



Axis Danz Flagging

http://www.axisdanz.com/index.asp?PAGE=viewourreel
br>
Not quite poi, but flagging from this US performance troup.

Most of them seem to work in TV, so unsurprisingly. this is a very well produced promo.



Its well worth having a look at the "performance highlights" slideshows, showing shots of impressive looking shows -

Mind you their, performance highlights do include a "Mariah Carey Music Video" ubblol



Not necessarilry anything special in terms of twirling, but worth seeing the video for some great moments where they show some big choregraphed twirling shows performed by multiple pro dancers smile



Video Overall Rating 68%

+ performance, twirling, filming, editing and dancers

- technical, and those orange and green flags wink

He gives flagging classes downtown, I've taken a few. He's a great guy. We've crossed paths many times.

Yeah, you can all laugh at the thought of me trying to keep up with a tall goodlooking well-moving dance troupe.

Yup, George is great. They do all sorts of Gay fundraisers as well as performing at various international venues. Local New York Boy done well.

Lots of dancing and good flowy dancy poses.
