My Life In Ropes
http://vimeo.com/18396916 you can watch it in HD if you want...

My routine based on the professors nightmare and some moves from fiber optics. This is my interpretation and is protected by copyright © Timothy Dowd MMXI - if you copy the story you infringe these rights and your most precious body parts with die and drop off...

Naturally, the moves can be learned from your favorite book or DVD... Except the "backhanded rope count" which I think I invented... if anyone can give me information on a similar count please let me know... how to do this count is also included in the above license agreement... assuming it is mine...

I've never seen anyone count >quite< like this before, and I've seen quite a few rope routines! I don't mean to sound to sound condescending, but it's really just a variation on a theme, isn't it? Slydini's sliding side count (for lack of a better descriptor) comes to mind.

Thanks for sharing your routine with us. It looks like you put a lot of work into it to make it your own!!!

Hey Guys, thanks again... gaddy you're right... it's always a variation... just wanted to set my variation in stone Smile just in case some punk comes out with a one trick download for 50 bucks Smile

I really love this routine... and it only works if you present it from the heart...

I am going to present my Bavarian Bier Counter next...

Your rope routine is well pleasing to the eye. Though I'm French and my English isn't very fluent, I saw the performance without annoying or losing the thread (except perhaps when babys are coming in your mouth ;-) ).
It's absolutely not my story-telling manner, but I liked it.

And your "backhanded rope count" is really fluent and impressive.
Thank you.
