2010 Ultracircle Review
Posted 27 June 2010 - 11:02 AM
Another year where we had to move it to a different location because EDC just keeps getting more and more packed, but it turned out okay. Definitely held its own as as a great ultra circle. certainly not as epic was 2008, but everyone was a pro, and it certainly felt pretty smooth sailing to me. this year has been a lot less "drama" in terrms of GSC so maybe that had a lot to do with it.
Music was better than 2009.
They had cameras on huge cranes and they displayed the ultra circle on pimp LED screens.
a lot of new faces
The stage was brighter than the colliseum or the kinetic fields so the ultra circle didn't seem as bright as when it was held in the darkness
no hassles with battlers this year.. people generally was okay with taking turns.
we didn't have multi-stage cracks this year

One question though, how is it a con that there were no hassles with battlers?

Sorry I made such an ass of myself (I did a timed ground crack to a beat drop and... nothing else interesting ), I'm normally not that bad, but I froze up hardcore and couldn't do anything but weave and wrap. Shaaaame. Mad props to everyone who can perform with that kinda pressure, the respect I have for all you guys is just huge. Thanks for a magic moment. Maybe next year I can throw in an orbital or two

That is ridiculous.

The side stage worked decently but I think it might have resulted in the less than bountiful turn out. Also the music had more lulls than I expected from an electro dj.

Kyle 'Clutch' Jimenez
Dave (Cynicdave) - for creating GSC, mad freehanding skills, and friendly inviting personality.
Aaron (Spazzman) - all the vids that you've posted over the years that served as a basis for my own freehanding, as well as your words of inspiration and encouragement. Will definitely hit you up if I'm in the NYC area for sure!
Ray (Greens2dust) - Trying to teach me an orbital air wrap, even though I failed, your stringing, isolations and freehanding.
Jeff (Nmestarr99) - All the vids you've posted, for teaching me tosses, and just being and over all cool ass dude! Like we always keep saying, we have to hang out, lol!
Brian (Melvenorc) - Being the first ever GSC person I met at the Summer 08 meetup at Metreon. Your stringing has always been something that has put me in a state of awe.
Nalin (IndianSpicedRice) - Always seeing you at every rave I end up at, your conjuring skills and being another dope ass homie!
Cody (Ange) - Though I kept missing you at EDC, for being the one GSC member I've have the opportunity to kick it with the most, and all the crazy talks about trance and glowsticking after the raves.
John (Global J) - Your stringing in the ultra circle was just as magical as the first time I meet up randomly at spookfest 09 and it always brings a smile to my face.
Griever - Epic ass freehanding skills, your raw flow and style has always been something I've looked up to esp. due to the lack of freehanders I know.
Guinto - Being one of the original GSC members I got to meet at my first meet up. Your stringing and glowsticking style is crazy good!
TKstick - Your freehanding with sticks connected together was pretty cool, and gave me new concepts to experiment with.
Epictracer - For hooking me up with some of the NorCal GSC contact info, your freehanding and overall being a cool dude.
Freehander passing out ultras? - I'm sorry I do not remember your name, though I know you told me, thanks for trying to teach me how to juggle two glowsticks in one hand although I'm still in the process of working on that.
Anyone I forgot to mention due to my inability to remember names.
P.S. If people are wondering, 'who the heck is this?' I was the freehander wearing the white buttoned down collared shirt and grey SF Giants baseball cap. Just thought I'd clarify. ^^'

(For the curious, I was the awkward guy in the black jeans and gray t-shirt with a breast pocket.)

haha took me forever to jump in that thing. After Matone had went i KNEW i had to go haha, he later told me that he knew i wouldnt go so he jumped in to inspire me haha and it worked
I was so looking forward to glowsticking with everyone and i had some thought of how inspired id be after watching everyone, but wow, i was so wrong, my expectations were wayyyyy short hahah, complete utter chaos = inspiration infinite +2 =D
And the premeetup was so awesome, getting to kick it with everyone, had a great time
haha wanna say thanks to Demo for saving me and matone from being stranded at the wrong place, hahah it was great. he knew it was me from my gages, and i knew it was him from his fro hahah definitely will never forget my first EDC pre meet up. No amount of words or thanks could truely explain the gratitude i have for everyone that came out and took part in such a great moment.
What inspired me most; when everyone said it was impossible for me to graduate, was the thought of getting to see, hang and glowstick with all the people i looked up to, and meeting new people... still makes me soo happy and giggly thinking about my awesome trip.
awesome Awesome AWESOME
SUPER HAPPY, smile from ear to ear
