Nice ones Milky, Trace & Ben.

I failed my practice for the 3rd day in a row. Worst 3 of the month. *sigh*

Right, now I need to go and put my yo-yo head on, for a gig tomorrow.
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!

That sounds rough, Void. I hope the 45 mins were fun.

Today I landed my first spike to earth. I went through a whole bunch of ladders on youtube and wrote them down on a sheet of paper. Now I go through the ladders until I land each trick. I'm learning so many beginner tricks now.

I got hit by a van last week and pulled a knee ligament so I can only play for five mins at a time. Total bummer. Getting x-rays on Monday.

I just landed my first lighthouse as well!!!

Yes it was, Trace! :-)

Well done on the tricks, but bad luck on the van. Ouch. Get well soon.

Today I...
Managed to get a few clips around New York whilst on holiday
But whilst filming a trick on Ellis Island, one of the helpers[1] saw me and started to call me other. It turned out he owned a kendama too - and had it with him! He didn't know what it was called but could do a few basic tricks (moshikame etc.) we talked a played for ~10 mins - so all in all a good day and a good finish.

Oh and my Bamboo KROM managed to take a big chunk off the big cup. Time for some super-glue and a warning sign me-thinks!

Sorry to hear about your Krom. I would like to see your edit when it's done.

Today I landed my first airplane to ken somersault! So psyched!

For a short moment I wondered, what kind of sequence "around New York" might be. Found it funny that you filmed it on Ellis Island. Then I understood :)

Ha ha, Lars! :-)

Today I filmed my submissions for the diabolo collaboration, passed my 6th Dan practice, weighed, measured, and sold a kendama, and started writing up a web page.

Nice, Fred! Max has got skills, huh, Lars? Or were you just having a bad day? Glad you like it, Kev.

Today I passed 6th Dan practice. 8/October. But with a whole heap of horrible in the tries between this and my last pass. And it seems I need to be outdoors in daylight to stand a good chance.

I'd say it was both. But we also played on different rings because of our different skill levels. And KendaMax is more solid than I am with on the respective level :)
The game's a nice addition to our sessions. We used to use the random function of the Kendamapp to explore new tricks in a non-competitive way. But to have some change is great.
