Something I enjoy showing off is contact juggling. I’m by far not the world greatest, I only know some basics.
But here are a quick beginner tip:
For training you don’t want to buy an expensive contact juggling ball (about €20,- for 6,5 cm diameter)
You can buy a Fushigi Ball, this is a cheaper “gadget” version. (about €15,- or a cheaper second hand one)
None the less I only advise these when you can actually do something. It’s a shame when the surface of the good balls scratch during practice.
I learned tricks by using water filled bouncing balls (€2,50) from the toy department.
Then I started to use big glass marbles, these are about €5,- but very heavy in contrast to official balls.
Today I was in the sports store and saw Field Hockey balls. These are just perfect to practice with; They have a nice weight, good size and are nearly indestructible. Next to that they are quite cheap (€3,- although fancier ones are more expensive)
The only minor is the seam and the logo. But again; it’s practice material, it’s only to learn the skills.
I’ll buy a couple of those to use at the next EFF for kids to practice with, so I don’t have to worry they’ll toss the expensive balls around the gravel pathways. :)
Okay, maybe I’ve been too impatient.
The episode itself ain’t that bad.
"Wanna play a game?" was the first thing I thought when I saw Lauren and Crystal chained up.
I misjudged Crystal, I’m sorry for that. None the less I don’t really like her character. She doesn’t bring much to the table, unless she’s serving food in that diner she worked in,
I liked that Kenzi had some sort of quality time with Bo and she finally barfed up her confessions. I’m glad they made up.
Kenzi lost a bit of her spirit these last couple of episodes (her eye color isn’t that bright anymore as well), I hope she’ll get her spunk back quite soon, now everything between her and Bo is fine and her debt is settled with Massimo.
Did anyone laugh at the sight of the garden gnome gargoyle? That statue was sooo damn funny! :P
I’d preferred it if they had used a living statue. Think about Goliath from Gargoyles!
I know the budget for this show isn’t through the roof, but they could’ve done it a slight bit more spectacular.
On the other hand that thing seemed a bit unnecessary, it wasn’t beneficial for the story.
Lauren was awesome. She’s becoming such a bad ass! :D
Do we call her Karen now? I’m confused about that.
It’s nice they refer back to the episode where she admitted she knew how to make pipe bombs (3.10). I feel sad how ever for the reason why. There’s so much about Lauren that’s unknown. When did she make the transition from Greenpeace Activist to Doctors Without Borders?
I’m curious about The Elder, also why she thought it was Hale who was ordering her.
Wow…they already annoy me the first minute.
My recap (not their actual words):
Bo: “Any word?”
Dyson: “No, we don’t know anything and aren’t bothered to find her. I’m sure she’s save in a world where humans are hunted by powerful fae. I have smelled he along the way, but I’m not telling.”
Bo: “Who cares about Lauren anyway. I need sex…stinky manly sex…right now!”
I just applied for kick boxing last week. They managed to ruin my sport already with these haunting images! :O
Lets find the strength to watch the rest and I’ll be back with my verdict.
I’m sorry to say, but I’m annoyed as crap. So I’ll have a little rant.
For that: Spoiler alert!!!
This episode is way TMD (To Much Dyson). There was almost no room for any other character.
We only get the Morrigan back and we see Lauren having her one night stand with a backstabbing bitch.
I knew that she was trouble (when she walked in, it’s a shame on her no-ow.)
Anyway Bo’s in trouble, who’s there? Dyson. He’s in her dreams, in her dawning and now in her alternate reality thingy, which happens to be just a far away place in this reality.
I’m also starting to be annoyed with L-Word Jenny. She’s still Jenny; An egocentric sociopath that does anything for the money and credit. My tip to her: Stay away from the swimming pool!
Then near the end Bo says: “I can’t wait to see everyone. Kenzi and Hale, Trick and…”
…Okay, clearly we moved on from Lauren. No-one gives a shit about her anymore.
The 1st episode I thought people actually missed Lauren. Kenzi tried to call her several times until they got their memory back.
She helped everyone over the last years being their doctor. Dyson is alive because of her! And this is their way of thanking her?
Owh, and something I found odd: When Dyson passes the car she’s in, he doesn’t even smell her! What a douchebag bastard…
It’s so stupid that Dyson always gets to be the hero and Lauren is always the one that gets kidnapped, locked up, tricked, cheated on etc. :(
There’s nothing as soothing as sitting in a quiet room, watching the world outside, as you listen to the sound of your purring cat lying on your lap.
I tried to toss a plastic tray at my co-worker. But I accidently hit another co-worker as the tray hit the window of the office and bounced back into his face.
I don’t throw like a girl…
I throw like a Slayer!
(side note: He’s fine, he only suffered minor injury; a little scratch above his eye.)
