Addictive TV, the top VJ duo working today, was hired to video mashup the Antonio Banderas dance movie Take The Lead . It’s pretty cool.
Click on the video below. Or watch it on YouTube.

The best trampoline act I’ve ever seen is in La Nouba, Cirque du Soleil, in Orlando. It includes a lot of backdrop skills into, onto and on top of a 3-story “building”. (We did a lot of this kind of “spiderman” work at Taiso in Saskatoon over the years.)
The two feature trampolinists are fantastic. Coach Mathew Sparks gave me a tour of the set last month. Wow!
You can watch a brief video on the La Nouba site. This show includes trick bikes too. Cool.
The Flying Wallendas are still going strong. The Wallendas are one of the most famous circus family acts and they still are acclaimed for the 8-person pyramid in the 2003 Guinness Book of World Records.
This photo is the 7-person pyramid they have been doing for decades.
Gymnasts like it. And the new gymnastics movie has been a financial success â€” but critic Peter Sobczynski calls it a “brainless and soulless example of marketing masquerading as moviemaking”.
Seems this little movie did some creative advance work with a sophisticated MySpace page.
Disney also packaged a special mailing of the “Stick It” trailer and the Missy Elliott video “We Run This” to International Gymnast magazine’s 30,000 subscribers.
Savvy Gym Clubs organized Stick It parties for their teams. GymnasticsZone posted a positive review, from a gymnastics perspective.
I am happy for the success of the film, but am already slightly dreading “Stick It, Again.”
Wonderful photo, don’t you think?

I found it on flickr using a cool search page by Air Tight Interactive.
If you want to use a flickr photo in a project (as I am here) first check the copyright restrictions. In this case the photo is in limbo, source unknown. Add a comment if you know where it comes from.
Good fun! Try a free on-line trampoline game.
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.
