Posted:Yeahhhhh, I love these threads... Another year, more goals, more awesomeness...

I was gently surprised by my goals last year, the completion and nature of them. This year, more solid goals:

1) Keep doing this stuff for another year without getting a real job.
2) Do not destroy my fire troupe.
3) Do the choreography and dance things.
4) Do the Hundreds. All of them, on video.
5) Try and do 1000 Matrixies for Children in Need.
6) Try and do something for the Fringe, indoors.
7) More floorwork.
8) Get some silly leg stuff solid.
9) Make a CJ routine
10) Make the post modern staffs.
11) Make the amazing machines routine... Damnit!

That sounds like a good lot of goals. Now I have to go and work on some stuff before 2010 rolls around...

Posted:?? Nerve?

I don't know if I've made a tutorial for fujimi's....

It's just like passing it between the elbows, (almost conveyor belt style) linked to the other way by half an easy way elbow fishtail, and some torso turning.

Posted:It's basically: double elbow cutback double elbow cutback continuously with torso movement so that you're standing in place. It's kind of hard to explain a cutback. It's when the staff reaches you second elbow and then due to a weird elbow fishtail motion it rolls back in the opposite direction it came in from.

Meg, I believe you're doing the reverse fujimi roll if I'm not mistaken.

I'll put it in a video when I finally get it and it doesn't look like total censored.

Posted:1) flash 5 staffs
2) do some juggling on fire
3) earn some money
4) not fail uni
5) doubles contact
6) spend time on performance over skill (don't like the sound of that)
7) fire

2)achieve! quite a bit done.
3)i'm surviving, but have now now become a tree surgeon
4)a couple of modules off completion, one year maybe i'll do it.
5)a little, but haven't really staffed at all
6)well, i've learnt to stop before i drop, and only do solid patterns in performance.
7)not in the big scheme of things

not so bad really, i more into clubs than staff nowadays though....

Posted:Originally Posted By: EmmCeeeFF- Continue to spin when I get back home to the UK and the cold
- Try and organise some sort of regular meet in home town
- Build a new staff to replace my travelling companion

Pending the first 3 go to plan...

- Practice all existing moves more so I don't have to chase the staff arround so much when doing contacting and hopfully make everything alot smoother

- Possibly start with some doubles?

1) Tick! Although since the snow has invaded again I havn't picked it up too much
2) Tick! Yay lots of new juggly people to practice with!
3) Well, I bought one..
4) I think I managed it to some degree, still alot of practice in 2011 though
5) Doubles hurt my brain, but the first steps have been made


If i had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isnt. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldnt be. And what it wouldnt be, it would. You see?
