I didn't get the chance to stand on anyone at the recent Boston Hatrackian picnic, but I wanted to share some circus tomfoolery with you all.

Last month, Mike and I attended an intensive circus skills workshop (five students, two coaches). I have several clips of things we learned. The avi's are in divx format and are between 1-3 megabytes each. I'll list a few of my favorites if you'd like to just pick one or two to look at.

Here I stand on Mike then flip down to the ground.

This one is definitely the funniest. Oops.

Mike dives through a hoop with his hands to his sides.

This is a bit of what static trapeze is like.

*** And for those of you who can't do movies at all, but are still interested, here are photos of some trapeze improv.

I hope some of you can poke around.

Muff Muff.

Heh, Myr. I promise the next time you come to juggling, we'll do cool stuff =).

And if you dress appropriately, you can learn some trapeze [Big Grin]

(For those of you who don't have broadband, I have photos of some improvisational single point trapeze.

So, no excuses now!

"muff muff" is akin to "ttfn." In Suneun-ese. Don't worry, nobody really knows what she's saying unless you talk to her in person.

Though I have to say that "muff muff" is relatively new, as far as these things go.

The most common ones used to be "moof" and "meep" - but I haven't actually heard them in a while....

[Smile]

Sorry about missing out on the Boston Hatracker shindig, by the way - I was feeling *bleh* in the tummy.

The Evolution of Muff:

beep -> meep -> merp -> moop -> moof -> muff

It seems that every 8-10 months, I'll switch. I don't usually do it consciously. Beep was sophomore year, Muff is the last year or so.

I only get the sound. Which is interesting, but weird. If I didn't know what was going on, I'd wonder about you. [Wink]

So sad. I get the video and no sound.

Mebbe I'll convert one of the files to a different format so people can satisfy my insistent pushing =)

Whoa. Those rock, Suneun. You guys took to it really easily, it seems.

btw - I'm still completely convinced that Mike is, in reality, Chris Kattan.

Is Chris a local friend? or someone famous I should recognize?

Nifty Nifty.

Sweet! Was the whole workshop outside? You're lucky, it looks like the weather was nice.

So far my slooooooooow internet isn't liking the movies but I'm waiting (im)patiently for them.

Speaking of circus (we should have done some fun stuff at the picnic *smacks head*) I've got some pictures of my summer:
me on the slackwire
same trick, different angle and different location
blue picture of the club passing act
better picture of the passing act
tripple bridge
a try at 5 person bridge

good fun!

Heehe. I like the three person bridge. I wish I could juggle better (I can barely do three clubs).

Definitely more Circus the next hatrack event. We can teach everyone to be circus geeks!
