Rock Balancing Video

Monday, May 15th, 2006

An oldie, but a goodie:
balancing point

Rock balancing has to go back to the beginning of time, even mother earth likes to play this manipulation game.
But Sensei Studios do it well, and the film it well, and they add an extra twist with reversing the video. So it’s definately worth a look.

It’s from:
Sensei Studios
Who have got a lot of videos and stuff.

Ryans likes Rock balancing, and I like Ryans Rock balancing – You might see a hint of this In the In-Isolation DVD.

This Blog is manitained by Ryan and Drew and today is the first day that it’s actually been live and working, mind you, we haven’t actually lauched it yet, and there are no links to it so we don’t expect you to be reading this.

The observent amongst you might notice that there are a lot of posts preceeding this one. Mr Mellors has imported all of his past posts from his old blog on Tribe. But kept all their old dates.
I’m confused,
Drew
