I present to you… THE MANDOLIN AND UNICYCLE PROJECT

It has been a long journey, and my month is up, so I created the following video to show my progress, success, and failure. Stay tuned for the next project! To begin in  just a few days! My new challenge will be revealed in a matter of hours 🙂

OUCH!!!!!!

Now, keep in mind this does not look nearly as bad as it actually was, but it WAS. Essentially this is what happened:

I got a bit cocky about my mandolin and unicycle skills as I had done decently well a few days prior to this shoot, so I decided to invite some people on the patio to check it out. Things started off a bit sloppy, but then I caught my balance on the unicycle and started strumming the mandolin a bit, and then BAM. I fall backwards, with nothing to hold onto and take a whack to the FACE from my mandolin. Needless to say I can now honestly claim that my SWEAT and BLOOD has gone into this project.

Check out this video for the documentation:

mandolin + unicycle -day#20-attempt#2

I tried to get them both together for the first time today! It proved to be quite a challenge to get used to having this thing around my neck while unicycling. The following video is one of the very first attempts at riding with it attached to me… just to get the feel of it.
