The Kendama Consistency Challenges return!

Since a couple of the KCCs have proved to be too challenging to be conquered, we're going back to the original concept of CONSISTENCY for number 10. All of these tricks are achievable in themselves for an intermediate player. It is the "in a row" aspect that we hope will prove to be challenging for all players.

Rules:
1) Open to all forum members, worldwide. (And if you're not a member, what's stopping you from joining?!)
2) Post a video in this thread of yourself doing all of these tricks in order.
3) Remain in shot for the whole run of tricks. If you go out of frame, or if there are any edits or cuts, the video won't count.
4) No misses allowed.
5) Use the same standard-size kendama for all tricks.

So, to set you up for your EKO practices, here is a list containing some standard tricks, and some from the EKO list.

Pretty Tricks All In A Row
1. Lighthouse, 2 in a row.
-3 seconds with hand held still.
2. Aeroplane, 4 in a row.
-Start with ken held.
3. Scooping Big Cup. 2 in a row. **
4. Spike. 10 in a row.
5. Stopover.  *
-Clean entry to big cup, no wobbles, and no slack string allowed.
6. Around the Prefecture. 3 in a row, without re-setting.
-ie Straight from the spike back to the base cup each time.
7. 200 Moshi Kame.
-120 bpm minimum.
8. Hanging Spike. 3 in a row.
9. Knee Bounce. 3 in a row.  **
-ie Big cup, knee bounce back to big cup, repeat immediately without resetting.
10. Nodding Off. 2 in a row ***
-ie (Pull up to Bird, 3 seconds with hand held still, then tilt into Big Cup. Reset.) x2

** See EKO 2012 Advanced vid: [noembed]http://juggling.tv/11705[/noembed] .
*** See http://www19.atwiki.jp/shakemid/pages/478.html (Bird-> Big Cup part only)

Winner gets:

1) An exclusive piece of signed Donald Grant artwork. ("Flying Top")
2) Some BKA event posters
3) Some stickers
4) A kendama stand
5) 2 Spare strings
6) The right and honour to set KCC #11 with your own chosen list of tricks.
7) The respect of the clicking community.

Ready, Set, Click!!

Can anyone help me?
I don't know what "stopover" and "nodding-off" look like... Even if there is a short description of the nodding off...   :-[

Stopover: Sorry, it's number 6 on [noembed]http://juggling.tv/7018[/noembed] .
Nodding: http://www19.atwiki.jp/shakemid/pages/478.html (But only the first two parts in this video. You do not have to "nod" back to Bird.)

I believe I can go quite far in this one, I am not going to be able to do 3 hanging spike nor nodding off, but all the rest seems doable, nice one :)

hmmm, I did it all the way up to the 2nd hanging spike. Not that I will be able to do a single nodding off, but hey

I also tried knee bounce a little and doing it 6 times in a row is not difficult (I did not even tried it before)

Same here!
Annoyingly, in my cup-of-tea attempt just now, I got to the first Arnd Pref, and then reset it without thinking. D'oh!
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Last night I got to number 10, landed the first Bird, then missed the Nod. Aargh! :)
