Hey all, I’m making a flash movie intro for my club’s website.
I’ll post the movie when it’s completed, but due to the large-ish size of the movie, I will require one of those fancy ‘loading’ movies.
I would like to fill the void while loading with quotes. You know how in anticpation of an event or a movie, they’ll write
‘blah blah blah’ - Famous guy
very much like what we do in our sig lines.
I wonder if anybody has any really cool one(or 2)-liners that really embody the whole unicycling experience?
I’ll credit the quote with your name, or if you know of any already made up ones, I’ll give them the credit.
I’m looking for 4 or 5.
(Something that the novice person who may have stumbled onto my site (searching for ‘unicycling’ but maybe not all that interest (YET) may have their interest sparked with, not something like…profiles and gazzoloddi’s yeah, pedal grabs…)
You could do what Nick Brazzi did in his Moab video. An unrehearsed scene plays behind the end credits, as he walkes around the group of resting riders on the slickrock: “Where’s your other wheel?” he asks, to one person, then the next, then the next, and gets a different answer from each person. A wonderful piece of spontaneous unicyclist cleverness.
You could list a bunch of those, or just a bunch of the stupid questions people ask.
What sparked the original request is the poster I have up behind my compuet. it says,
‘Mountain biking is about adventure and the rediscovery of your childhood freedom. It removes you from the daily grind and puts you in an environment with endless posiblities - wildlife, epic views, a personal epiphany about what really matters, and tasting your endorphines after a long, hard climb. The reward is looking back at obstacles, that are now behind you, and feeling like anything’s possible.’ - Gary Klein
