21st November 2011 - I really need to update more frequently!

Flying post to share some stuff that's been going on. 

PRETTY EVENTFUL AND BUSY REALLY - Read on!!

BELOW ARE. Links, Pics, People, Events, Stuff, VIDEO! etc:


Hoops , Juggling and bands - 30th October

Went up to London to see Ri-flower, Rae and others, to hoop, juggle and play in the park like awesome people. It was much fun, got a few hours of juggling practice in, which is a rarity nowadays but it was fun. When we'd finished in the park Ri and I went to Camden to our favourite little eatery "My Village".

PICS AND CLIPS TO FOLLOW!

Upon leaving, I did a double take and realised Matt and Chris from Funeral For a Friend were in there eating also. I left them be but figured they must be playing a show, so managed to wangle tickets and saw them that night. Escape the fate were supporting, which was an unexpected bonus. Funeral STOLE the night though with an AMAZING set, playing lots of songs from their kick ass new album, "Welcome Home Armageddon".

Here's a video of what I captured of the Night, Funeral for a friend opening up! Watch in HD!

Coincidentally, this day last year I was seeing Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour! Apparently this date is yearly gig day.



Sopio! - 12th November

Certifimication
I ventured to LONDON for the 2nd London Sopio Tournament, celebrating the creation and release of the 3rd Deck in the Sopio series! ((It's a killer deck))

The Tournament was run by none other than Mr Danny Hooper and Alex Day, was great to see them again and have a good old chat about my favourite card game. 

This time round only deck 3 was being played the whole day, which, took time but was much fun being thrown into the deep end. I managed to get through to the final of this tournament with "Epic subby Rowan' Brad Smith from World of the Orange (TEAM WOTO) and Laura Maxwell.

Laura won in the end, but nonetheless I'm now ranked.... 6th in the world and Sopio! WOOP! www.sopiocards.com/rankings

Thanks for everyone for being so awesome and lovely (and geeky enough to attend and make it happen!

Longboarding and pursuits - 15th November.



Playing while it was SLIGHTLY dry in Wales.

 Well, winter and the wetness has set in which is making boarding difficult BUT managed to get a decent day in last week, and filmed, and edited in the same day. So, enjoy the video below!
Big thanks to Newton's Shred for adding me to the Team and for the support over the year!

Since last post, The Southend Longboarding Gravity Research Division and Newtons Shred Team, went to WALES to play on a VERY WET hill mid September, Hog Hill in the beginning of October and skating loads since.

If you could swing by www.facebook.com/slgrd and like the page, would be super awesome! Same for www.facebook.com/newtonsshred for all your longboarding needs and fixes :).
