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...

Worek BAP theory

I was incredibly disappointed and floored that Jakub Worek didn't make BAP. but I feel that Jakub is one of the best players in the world easily right now. I wonder what the deciding factors were for the induction. Not enough clipper like Olaf? I wasn't in the BAP meeting so I have no insight on th...

Taishi legs and vlog

Taishi has always had logs for legs. But you are right; they seem extra enormous. When I met Taishi back in 2003, they introduced him to me as a hardcore soccer player who was now interested in footbag. I took one look at his beefy legs and thought: "this guy is built for soccer, not footbag." As i...

Taishi on TV

Just watched the Taishi segment, and it was one of the best promo pieces I've seen done on footbag. Fantastic work from Taishi and the NHK production team!

Finals Stream (Part 2)

I would have had Team Japan on in 2nd for doubles - I thought the artistic mastery was really great.  Same here, but I'm not very well-versed in doubles.  Maybe experienced judges picked up on a lot of technical nuances that I didn't notice.  Either way, it was a killer routine and at least they go...

Finals Streams (Part 1)

Nice find Dan! I'm sure I saw that video when it came out, but back then I probably wasn't as familiar with Muse or Nina Simone so the song didnt stick in my head. It's been a few days since Worlds has officially ended and life feels like it's returning to what passes for normal these days.  I've sa...

bad injury luck!

Haven't played since my last post. Started getting nerve pain down my leg, like sciatica (though my physiotherapist nor back specialist referred to is as such). Geez, it feels like you can't catch a break. :( I remember getting Lavers shortly after seeing She's All That, but I remember playing in s...

Finals Show is Back Up!

It appears to be up again! Haven't watched it all the way through, so not sure how they addressed the copyright strikes.



It does appear the live chat replay is not available, which is a bummer since that was a lot of fun. :(
