Rotor?

Looks a bit like rotor without the dex?

JFC drill

Air quality has been fluctuating between good and bad lately. The trick is being flexible and being ready to play on a moment's notice when conditions allow. I still want to shoot entries for JFC 2020, but the air hasn't let me. Happily, I did manage to squeeze in a session and shoot some stuff. I d...

Unhealthy Air Quality

glad the air quality improved there, we're still pretty terrible out in california.. Yeah, whenever I want to complain about the bad air quality I catch myself because I understand how much worse it is for other parts of the country. Like, it sucks that we can't take the kid outside to play and tha...

From 90 degree heat to snow overnight!

Incidentally, I thought about doing something similar, but was thinking more along the lines of making a short video saying hi to everyone there That thought crossed my mind too, but then I got all self-conscious about how bad my Japanese has deteriorated.  :oops:  Maybe I should binge more Terrace...

De La Sole

Thanks Dan. As time passes I'm able to view Worlds 2020 with hindsight, and consequently I am more able to internalize it as a success. I'm proudest and happiest about how routines and Shred Off turned out, but the tournament as a whole was also one of my best and for that I feel proud. I actually w...

Good playoffs so far

Yeah, it's pretty neat that the NBA is still involving fans despite the challenges of the bubble. I also think we're all kind of taking for granted how well the NBA has executed the bubble. It's been over a month, tons of players, tons of staff, and not a single positive case. It's jarring to compar...

Re: Japanese Footbag Champs 2020

More details released today:http://footbag.jp/jfc/2020/ Also not clear if this is only open to Japanese players, or if anybody can participate. Looks like it's open to anybody who currently lives in Japan. That's pretty cool. That means TJ or me could have competed when we lived there. I'm not sure ...

Blurriest is a bad name too

I agree that DLO is maybe the worst offender in terms of being straight up misleading/incorrect. I also feel some annoyance at tricks like blurrier and blurriest. They were undoubtedly hard tricks when they were named, but they've been surpassed by so many other tricks which are faster...how can ste...

Nice barrages!

Thought the barrages looked great! I personally find barrage from toe a lot easier than clipper. Maybe it's the foot switching timing, or the placement. As for bags, is there any reason you prefer lead? I know a lot of stitchers avoid lead these days. My personal favorite bags are Ivan Iakimenko bag...

Nostalgia Nostalgia

Jay reminded me of this thread today, pointing out the meta level of having nostalgia about a nostalgia thread. I agree though.

Re: Canberra, Australia via SCL - Daniel Boyle

we were talking about getting organised the footage, at least from finals, of all the different world championships I think that's a great idea. I loved the Finals night show, but it is hard to ask an acquaintance to watch a 90 minute video when you may only want to showcase to them a single event ...

Blooper reel

yeah I think that live chat feature only works when it's a premiere, it doesn't stick around afterwards. I'm not sure how the chat replay works.  All the 2019 Worlds videos still have the chat replay functional: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu2u1A9s-Zs   Anyway, I recently stumbled across this b...

Grading my Worlds

Even just being close enough to have smoke in the air for days and day is not pleasant at all. Bad air persists, so I haven't played in a week.  Beyond footbag though the air quality has forced us to keep Griffin indoors 24/7 so he's been cranky and bouncing off the walls as a result.  Can't wait t...

Re: Worst Shorthand Names

Who the fuck came up with calling ss Atomic sets “tapping”, when a trick, tap, already exists? Has to be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. I can shed a bit of light on things. Way back in the day sets didn't exist, so these problems didn't exist. When tricks involving sets first started po...

Solo 2020

Typically they don't open up events for non-Japanese/non-resident players, unless the event is unofficial (e.g., circle contest). Given that I am half Japanese, I think it'd be fair if they let me compete and then just halve my scores.  So like the Shred30 I did for Worlds (246 points) would count ...

Smoke town

Poor air quality has limited my playing this past week.  There are like 4 major wildfires active around Colorado now.  While they're too far away to pose an immediate threat, the smoke has been intense.  Everything has been hazy, it smells like a fire, and there are public health warnings to stay in...

Japanese Footbag Champs 2020

Looks like JFC is going to be held online this year, similar to how Worlds was done. It appears a lot more detail will be coming out on September 6, but for now it looks like the key dates are: :arrow: September 6: rules announced :arrow: September 6-October 31: period for submitting video entries :...

It's a me!

Tiny C-Fan (or V-Fan) at the top in the middle. Ha!  Yep, that's me!  It was an interesting experience to say the least.  We had two feeds running simultaneously, one of the live game feed and the other of our cheering section.  That meant the actual quality of the game feed wasn't great.  The enth...

If anybody is watching Game 1 of Jazz-Nuggets, look for me in the virtual stands as a virtual fan. I'm wearing glasses and a yellow shirt.

Quick E

Those Adam Hughes Mucha tributes are AMAZING!  I had heard of him and seen some of his normal comic book art, but these are way more impressive.  Thanks for sharing Erik! I actually don't think I see you do DATW all that often and there were a few of them in there. DATW definitely checks all the box...
