TRICKS OF THE TRADE
This is a good beginners video. My main complaint is the horrible repetitive 80's music. However,
this video helped me learn many basic tricks such as pixie and mirage. I have heard good things of TOTT2, and I would
advise that over this video, as some of the footage on this video is slightly outdated. The freestyle footbag world
is better represented in TOTT2.

THE NEXT LEVEL
TIME 2 JAM
I love this video. This video alone made me fall in love with Brian Parson's style. My friends
quote "I'm going to hit a montage... a montage" quite often. This video is full of awesome style and is definitely one
of my favorites. There is a great James Risden section where he is shredding near the beach and some jugglers are doing
their freestyle routines. There is Jim Penske shredding on a cellular phone, which makes me laugh nearly everytime...
"No... southside? Southside." And to top it all off, there are singing fish at the end of the video.
JUST SHRED II: LIKE WHOA
Whoa. I just got my copy of Just Shred II: Like Whoa. It was really pretty good. Let's see... there's
a really funny and cool interview with Travis Strickland (up and coming footbagger I guess... I wasn't too sure... maybe a
pal of Wicked's?)... I liked that. It's near the end. The whole video is around 42 minutes long. Allan hits a PS Whirl off
of a wall and that was PHAT. Haha... let's see... other highlights include a tetris remix which was cool... the first 2 or
3 songs are rap, which I like, but not everyone digs, but whatever. The big three's were SO COOL and so were the sick tricks...
some dude (forgot who...) hits a Marius... I hadn't seen one yet it was PHAT... and I have no idea what the trick he hits
afterwards is... sounded like someone said "Tricerotops" but I'm probably wrong. Let's see... phat shred 30's with Penske
and Smith... I loved those. And Peter Irish did a really interesting juggling thing... there's no way in hell I could do that,
haha. I think it was 5 balls and he used his feet too. Cool stuff. There were times when I said "Oh my god"... or laughed
at the impossibilities these guys were pulling off. There's like a semi-promo for Fo Shizzle... someone throws a stuffed animal
at the screen and Wicked flashes the words "Fo Shizzle"... holy crap it was just a good video. I suggest it to anyone interested
in what's going on now in shred. Peace.
