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 🙂

at the “emergency room”

Here I am getting all nice and bandaged up by the UCLA staff people. I think it is funny how this small cut turned into such a huuuuge deal. Regardless, the video is pretty funny.

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:

I made it out a door!

And then turned! Well this may seem like a lame accomplishment to most, but I was pretty darn excited about it!

I tried it outdoors for the firts time today. The Broad Art Center has a perfect patio / railing for me to learn on. Expect another video in a little while.
