Not sure where I learned this as a kid. Don't even know whose trick it is. I remembered it and performed it at a recent session. Did it at work last night as well. If anyone knows whose trick it is, let me know.

Re: Latest Video Clip • Noodle Joint Ramblings

hmmmmmmm. sorry. The only thing I did different was save it as an MP4 file as opposed to a MPEG. (a larger file, better quality resolution)

I don't know, it's a dumb clip anyway. . . you didn't miss much.

Re: Latest Video Clip • Noodle Joint Ramblings

Steve,

You need to upgrade your Quicktime player to version 7. If you poke around the download site you can find a link to the player alone that doesn't force itunes on you.

Hey Geno, why not bring me back to perform the rope escape again like we did in Woodinville, WA

That was such a rush!! Bringing in a ringer who was a bondage master was a nice touch.
