STB in 48 sec...that is very impressive Void!  I just found out that I have been doing around japanx2 and around the worldx2 wrong.  Went back and did STB the right way and finished at 1:43.

Finally landed an inward lunar also, such a good feeling trick.
Also learned 1-turn stilt,  I was going through a 1-turn/2-turn phase for a week or two.  ;D

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 at juggling / kendama club, I landed bird for the first time, including finishing the trick with a spike.  Even better, some of my friends actually saw it.  I've never been able to finish the trick with a spike. 

Maybe this means, I'll actually get gunslinger one of these days, especially if I devote more time to practicing!

Been awhile since I've had time to dama...
Yesterday night I managed Swing in -little bird- reverse earthspin-big bird- earthspin-spike.

Alex Ruisch inspired that one in the Sunrise edit.

... managed an aeroplane and two jumping sticks in a row. I'm currently heavily practicing aeroplanes and everytime I catch, I'll try a jumping stick. Not very successfully so far. Might have the influence of been Nic's "Single trick II" that I watched today.

I managed Super Flamingo Spacewalk last night. It had always seemed really frantic, and unlikely to be achievable. Then I engaged my brain... "What if I make the first throw with a slower rotation?". Well, whaddya know, it makes all the difference! (It's still hard, though!)

Also, Hanging Triangle Candle, and courtesy of Orin, a penguin catch Aeroplane, and a Hand Throw Aeroplane.

I have a rough idea what a couple of these are... but I'm rather unaware of these names haha! I can't remember what Super Flamigo is, I think Tornado Sycthe Weasel has pushed out other names from my memory. As that (and 'Scythe Weasel') are the only spacewalk combo names I can remember.

See WKC 4th+ Dan video for SFS, see Knees for others.

In the time since past, I have landed SF Spacewalk (tiring...) and on Thursday I landed Merry Go Round! :D
Astounded, is not the word.

EDIT: Decided to slam this link in here... Merry Go Round:

Nice work, Thorny. I remember just trying to get the spin right on that one, and getting nowhere! Flukey catch? (Not to sound mean, but it's got to be hard to time that right!)

12m20s of Moshi. At about 155bpm, that's 1900+. A record for me. Then I finished off 4th Dan for good measure. :-) I also got a rare (for me) 100-catch run of 5 clubs. Last night was a good practice night!

Cheers dude, I normally aim for 10 minutes, but I forgot to set my timer that night. :-)
