Butler

Post by Tripp » 21 Dec 2008 18:19

I don't expect this to be very active or to last very long.
Now that I'm starting to get back into this game, I'm just hoping this may give me reason to keep me playing.

Working on my non-existant clip/spin/ducking game tonight.

gyro osis > ducking clip rpt
gyro osis > spin clip > duck clip both sides

Will try to get that second one to rpt when I haven't been drinking.

Hopover reverse swirl.

One of the few tricks I can think of that are harder to do in your head than it is to actually do.

Also fell on my already-in-pain wrist, while shreddin', in the snow. Hurt like a mofo right after, but now feels almost 200% better.

the biggest travesty in footbag history is that the name gaywalk didn't stick. I don't even remember what it was for.

your vids have, for years, been mind melting, jaw dropping shit. clicking your links is a guaranteed good time.

Hahahahahaha! Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with your brain that you even attempt stuff like that? My brain was hemorrhaging.

I love it. Hahaha. Awesome.

Sorry. Been real busy.

Mr. Randall - Appreciated! Thanks.
Ian - You're welcome.
Colin - It was Symp Bubba set far Butterfly. I still haven't seen anyone else do the set (of course, I've been away awhile). Though, Jorden was doing it wrong around the time I first learned it.
Boyle - I like their older and their newer stuff more so than their middle stuff (The Burning Red, Supercharger.. y'know, the nu-metal era)
Matt - Likewise, when seeing you play.
Ken - Not yet, and I don't really plan on it either. I just wanted to set an idea and hopefully someone like Cod will come along and be influenced and hit it.

Did that bounce on your foot in the slomo?

That move is insane.

I'm pretty sure anyone who is not completely stupid likes the older and newer MH a lot more than the middle albums. Have you seen them many times?

Haha, thanks again, guys. I figure I may try to hit it later on in life when I'm much younger and less wiser.

Dan, I've only seen them once about 5 years ago. Supercharger may have been their newest one then, I can't remember. It was at a relatively small venue and we were packed in with about zero breathing room. They were still good, though.

Dude!! you do exist...!

Its been way too long since we have seen/talked to eachother. I need to try making it up your way sometime this summer. Or if you ever get sick of the snow, I have a nice sunny place in NC for you to warm up at.

As for the 4dex... what the hell you doing slacker!!!?? Where is the pixie and/or atomic set in front of it!!! So ashamed right now...

That was really sick by the way..

Hi Aric. haha. Glad to see you're still alive, too. Yeah, you should definitely try to make it up to PA. It's always sunny here.


The past 3 weekends I've seen Ursus and The Grandeur live.
Megan used to work with the guitarist, Chuck, of Ursus and he would give me discounts at the beer distributor when he worked there. They have a chance to open the Pittsburgh Music as a Weapon date if they win a battle of the bands this weekend.
And I also have been real good friends with the singer of The Grandeur, Brandon, since before high school. Check 'em out if any of you are into that kinda brutalness. I'm just surprised there's actually good stuff in Butler.

Anyways, footbag wise...
Proof that freestyle football is just a easy as footbag
