    'Hey,

    Ok, as not many people replied to my thread about the weekend at my
    house, and the fact I would like people to review the movie we made, I
    have made a new thread.

    the movie is called 'Whatever' and is sort of back to front. Watch it to
    understand what I mean.

    I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it!

    Please let me know what you think,

    Cheers,


    Joe' (http://tinyurl.com/4393l)

    Very cool movie. But I have one question... at arround 4:50 into the
    movie... is that a wooden pedal?

    Logan says that staring at trees is better, I can safely say that that
    is a completely incorrect response. If John Childs says it, it will
    carry more weight. --Paco

    Mellick, that would be Aarons gold pedal - its not wooden, and also,
    before you ask, its not 'real' gold!

    Souleater12, dont know why!
    Try getting in from here:

    Cool video:) Thoes falls were really great, although some of them looked
    like they hurt. The riding it self was awsome:) keep it up.

    Nice video. Good choice of music. Most of the falls and stuff look
    staged and exagerrated, which is fine, but it makes it look like a
    "JACKASS" movie. Good "outtakes". Solid stuff. Where 'bouts was the
    coastal stuff?

    dunno, but that cat was cool & cute!

    All those errors and falls reminds me to a quote of Isaac Asimov: "The
    most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
    discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'" or
    another one: "scientists never make mistakes, they find new
    posibilities".
    Anyway, all those falls are usefull as you learn by making mistakes.
    And the outakes are good to!

    That was a very fun bit of unicycle porn. I liked the backwards
    presentation, but of course it woudn't be as effective with a "cold" or
    non-unicycling audience. Until the "outtakes" part started, I thought
    you guys were just a bunch of posers trying to fool us into believing
    your could actually do all those hard moves!

    My favorite shot was the one where the three guys jump directly over the
    camera. A cool viewpoint. Good thing it was in the outtakes section, not
    in the "Oops, last shot we filmed" section!

    During the first part though, it was beginning to look too much like a
    skateboard video. Not a skateboard video, but a video of what I see guys
    doing with skateboards. Trying over and over to do tricks they can't do,
    and not wearing any pads. Yes, you guys had your legs covered, but
    apparently none of you has had hand, wrist or head injuries yet. You're
    still a couple of notches above the skateboarders. Even if many of the
    crashes were obviously planned.

    All in all very fun. I liked the miscellaneous non-unicycling shots
    stuck in. A break from all the "porn" is always nice.

  12. Very nice, you guys are getting really good. But shouldn't it be 'The
    Start' instead of the end? :) I liked the long fence rides with the 90
    degree turn in the middle. Very nice.

    Thanks guys.

    Tim, as John Foss said, 'a break from the porn is always nice'. We got
    the train, so I thought I may aswell video it...

    BoojiBoy, the coastal stuff was in Whitley Bay, where I live.

    John, thats true about the backwards presentation not being understood
    by none-unicyclists. Aaron posted the movie on a MTB forum, and they
    didnt understand until he told them. Once they knew, they were loving
    it!
    I know what you mean about skateboarders trying things over and over
    again with no luck what so ever! I was wearing leg pads and gloves, as
    was Aaron. Aaron was also wearing his helmet. I had mine with me to use
    at the lighthouse, but most of the riding was very spontanious (spell?).
    I usually always wear my protective stuff. I think wearing it is a good
    example to anyone else watching the movie.
    I'm glad you found it fun - that was out aim. We also wanted to do
    something different and stupid at the same time. :)

    Mr Carter. How are you doing? I havnt talked to you in a while. Pleased
    you liked my ride along the fence. Thats a great idea about having
    'Start' at the end. Which we had thought of that one!

    Simon, I sent Aaron the CD yesterday, and he got it this morning.
    Donesnt seem to want to work though. Should play fine in WMP.
    Aaron was wearing all his protective stuff. I was just lacking a helmet,
    and Simon, well.. he never wears protective gear...

    Thanks all for your comments...

    Anymore?...


    Joe,

  15. I'm doing very well thanks Mr Baxter. I did my first solo (although
    with somebody speaking for me but I was the only unicyclist) trials
    unicycling gig at Australia Zoo the other day and got paid $300 for 4
    hours work. Not bad hey! I have a entertainer friend who will keep an
    eye out for more gigs for me too.

    There's an English guy over here in Brisbane at the moment and another
    coming in a couple of months...why don't you follow suit? You know you
    want to. :)

    I'm sorry andrew... but Joe is coming here to Perth. I've got big plans
    for the little bugger (even though he's probably several inches taller
    than me). I've spotted some good trials lines for him, stuff that I'd
    like to do if I was only good enough. But hey, I'm working on it!

    So $75 an hour you got, ey? Slightly better than $6.04 an hour :D
