Too busy for a properly written update, but sometimes you go to blog with the words you have, not the words you want…

Looking forward to this Saturday’s Firearms workshop.

Got a number of props projects in the works and/or recently completed, some of which I’ve been meaning to try for ages. Nothing with photos up yet though.

Made a couple tries to do something with footage from the last workshop, but haven’t gotten far- one software crash, and a couple times where I got called away to deal with other things.

A few updates from elsewhere:
The SAFD is getting a new website rolled out.

Reclaiming the Blade is almost out. Wish I had the money on hand to pre-order myself a copy…

Beginning Chinese Broadsword workshop @ Seattle Wushu.

…and finally, a fun video contest from Robert Chapin:
