The best use of the internet for teaching skills I’ve seen is The Front Handspring Vault by coach Brian Bakalar of Gymnastics Revolution, Connecticut.
Then check Brian’s photo and photo sequence database of basic skills he calls Gymnastics Interactive.
This is the best last salary review I have seen. Bill Sands collected data from 76 coaches; half male, half female. (34.2%) college, (59.2%) club.

I’ve been waiting for this.
The successful predecessor to this film, Bring it On, helped popularize cheerleading. Stick It will do the same for gymnastics, I think.
How did we not know about this sport?
Reviews have been less-than-Oscar-worthy so far. To see for yourself click the video below and watch the trailer.

Just saw the latest Chouinard show titled bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS.
… erotics of disability: gorgeous dancers, prosthetics and crutches at hand, twisting tortuously into orthopedic poses of pleasure and pain.
The other day Tiger Wood got blasted for saying his play was spastic. He (and I) learned that word is offensive in 2006. The lexicon of political correctness is ever shifting.
The show is based on the Goldberg Variations as interpreted by Glenn Gould. I liked the electronically distorted sampling of a radio interview with Gould.
Modern dance is my favourite style. Thumbs up from this talent scout!

Review from the North American Premiere in Oregon.
Did you happen to see Darren Berrecloth’s uninterrupted ride down a steep arid mountain ridge in Utah?
It first aired on Discovery Channel’s Stunt Junkies Feb. 1st, 2006. But I notice they are replaying that episode frequently where I live.
Berrecloth is widely considered to be the top mountain bike freerider on extremely steep and technical terrain.
From Discovery Channel:
Bike Magazine’s 2004 “Rider of the Year,” Canadian Darren “Bearclaw” Berrecloth has spent the last few years radicalizing the already extreme sport of freeride mountain biking. His signature spins, hand grabs and no-hands seat grabs have redefined the sport and earned him tons of accolades in the biking world.
Highly recommended is the summer gym camp owned and operated by two Olympians, John Macready and John Roethlisberger. Great guys, great staff. They know how to have fun.

Coach of 2006 NCAA repeat champions Georgia Gym Dogs, Suzanne Yoculan, reportedly earns $220,000 a year.
Good for her.
Georgia is the most successful women’s team in US College history, after Utah.

The new Beatles show which I knew as “Le Boys” previews June 2 in Vegas.
A cast of 60 international artists. Using the master tapes at Abbey Road studios. A custom-built theatre at The Mirage featuring 360Ëš seating, panoramic video projections and surround sound.
Sounds like a huge hit to me.
