Re: Fanzine

Thanks for your thoughts on BAP a bunch of posts back. Great reasoning and insights! Also interesting to read your continuing thoughts on Worlds. It's an interesting year for competition. https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/5db7168521bb7642d02ed3fd/1577344833464-8U3837NZZSEUS6ZHTGAN/ke17Zw...

Re: Muffinman

Yeah, I could use better balance. I wish I could slow down my game somehow. Just be less spastic and be more smooth. Anyway, had another solo session. Was super stiff to start, but warmed up after a while. Oof, my body takes so much longer to recover now that I'm getting pretty close to 40! I'm supe...

Re: Kankeri Japan

I was thinking about writing this progress down in modified, and if it could affect placement at Worlds. I mean, if a judge who frequents Modified read our blogs, they would know the degree of effort put into a routine, whether it was 'just a safety routine', and other possible things. Honestly, I ...

Re: Fanzine

Great video! So many huge tricks, it's nuts! I think Worlds this year will be exciting. Everyone will be pushing and hitting stuff that wouldn't normally be able to, and for a spectator that should be a lot more fun to watch! I am curious how BAP induction(s) will work. Though who can argue that Jak...

Nice, it's great to be able to build a game and style from almost scratch. Sounds fun!

Re: Muffinman

Thanks guys. Double spins aren't back yet. I tried a few times during session #5 (3 sessions ago) and it was too sloppy. I'm still working on just getting single spins back consistently, lol. Jammed with Alex today. It was sooo hot out. He said that there was a heatwave warning and that people were ...

Re: Muffinman

Thanks guys. Yeah, weather has been great! The new guy here, Mark, has been around since last season... well, almost 2 seasons ago I guess. But it's great that he's coming out and is so motivated! RECOVERY SESSION #6 I missed Sunday's session (I think it was Alex and Mark) and had been dying to play...

Re: Muffinman

new guy ? wait those exist? Lol. Technically I guess he's not new anymore, so maybe not... Apparently our other "new guy" contacted Alex recently, out of the blue after a long absence, so that's also neat. He's an older new guy, but I think this newer one has trained harder and has more tricks/cont...

Re: Starting over

Your barfly form is so choice! Watching the first one, I was, like, “Oooh!” Very Tom Mosher (who gets barfly compliments from everyone!) I also just wanted to say that I have the same form on whirls and I also always hated it! If you figure out the secret to changing to more horizontal, I’d love to ...

Re: Fanzine

I have no interested in participating in competition or watching most of it, but reading your thoughts on strategy is pretty interesting! I'm curious how much thought less-seasoned competitors put into these same calculations

Re: Canberra, Australia via SCL - Daniel Boyle

So many beautiful sunsets in this one! Wow! Trivia! I think I inadvertently "popularized" the trickname "Darkwalk". Pretty sure Rob Fuller came up with it, but just used it himself, didn't try to make it official or anything, and then that's what I called it on Hackrifice, decades ago, back when my ...

Re: Starting over

Actually, you guys (Gray and TJ) have similar style! Very smooth with lots of time to spare! It looks like you're struggling with you osis a bit. Maybe some BOP drills would help with that, like as many full rotations of ((pdx mirage > near butt > osis) repeat). Something I like to do when training ...

Re: Muffinman

Thanks Gray. Actually, I can do reverse swirls, but not regular ones -- I could never figure that out either. The water was far enough away that I wasn't concerned, since i'm not doing any big tricks that would fling the bag that far. It's nice to be by the water though :) RECOVERY SESSION #4 Alex i...

Re: Fanzine

Yikes. So sorry to hear about your week, Ken! Mathieu's solution sounds promising! Alternatively I was going to suggest replacing the tongue with some other fabric? It's hard to picture how the toe box broke, but maybe that could work. Do you have other non-G-Unit shoes you can play in? Not ideal, b...

Re: Muffinman

Thanks guys! What are those buildings in the background? Looks like a cool place to shred. The buildings are part of Ontario Place, which is, hmmm... like a... "Entertainment venue", Google says. It's got like, a water park, an enclosed pond with swans and swan pedal boats, I think there are animals...
