Bench in the Light at Night

I've decided where my first spot is going to be for "My 5ifteen Tricks". There's this bench in front of the Library at the University of Wisconsin Barron County. It is accross the walk-way from a light post. The light the lamp casts down on the bench is pretty cool looking at night. I think with the help of my portable painter's light, I might be able to get some interesting shots. I think it will also demonstrate how easy it is to get creative with unicycling. Adding more spins, flips and rotations is cool, but it is certainly not creative. I'll try to think up some cool stuff to do on the simplest object around; a bench.

I'd also like to mention that RedBull is doing an advertiseing contest thing. Well, not quite a contest but more of a collaboration of ideas. They're basically just going to be using peoples ideas. Or possibly the raw footage? That is to say if you were to submit a video suggestion. Which is by the way precisely what I intend to do. I hope they use mine. I'd really enjoy being in a RedBull commercial.

Shiftys and One Footers

So Bry from "Univision" wants to see the one footers and the shiftys. I have to say, they haven't gone anywhere. I still do them all the time at my local skate park. I do the shiftys while airing out of quarter pipes and also airing back into the euro gap. I also do the one footers while transfering on the hip in the center. But if it's old school tricks you want, its old school tricks you're gonna get. I'm going to go film nothing but as soon as I get a chance and post it on univission (unicyclist.ca) for Bry and the whole world to see.
My 5ifteen Tricks

Check it out. It's a new series of videos that I'll be putting together over the next several months. I should be able to eek out a large number of these videos based on how short they'll probably be. It doesn't take long to do 5ifteen tricks. So expect to see lots of interesting tricks at lots of interesting places. And follow it religiously. Please.

I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I might be a guest on Rob Dyrdek's new show "Rediculousness". That's right, I got the offer last night. I've got my fingers crossed but if all pans out, I'll be able to do a demo and talk about unicycling. Stay tuned for more information.
