Looked great. I'm a little suspicious that the video might have been sped up a bit. I would have liked to have seen more than hands in the video. Any other moving objects in the background (like people walking by)would have convinced me one way or another if the video had any help.

Even if its sped up ..the slower version is impressive. I couldn't do that in a million years.

Best,

Tim

I was at a seminar and this kid was spinning a pen around his thumb then through his fingers and did it fast and smooth. I asked him about it later and he seemed not aware he was doing it, said he had a boring job and use to play with the pen. I sure couldn't come close to doing it but it was similar to what that vid showed in some of the shots.

I couldn't watch it, because my Adobe Flash player is too old. However, I'm familiar enough with pen spinning: it's one of the group of juggling skills endorsed by the people associated with Godzhandz (or whatever they call themselves) along with XCM and cup-stacking.

Actually, the cup-stacking amazes me the most. When they do it REALLY fast it looks very magical, as if the stack of cups is just building itself. I'll go find a video:

[later] Here's a video: http://www.kardkingz.com/videos/2005stack.mp4

I still can't figure out how many websites there are for De'Vo and Jerry and the gang. Handlordz.com, superhandz.com, kanrdkingz.com...obviously these people have a thing about using "z"s instead of "s"s.

The use of a Z is right up there with 'extreme' in their little diluted minds. My favorite failure of theirs was the underwater cuts.

Santa, if you want silly, you've got to watch this:

I guess De'vo is all grown up now and ready for a serious career in something other than card flourishing.
