The Perfect way to kick start your training.
Check out this cool Roshambo iPhone Ap from Duncan Stevenson. I loaded it up thinking how much fun can it be playing against some computer generated opponent? But trust me when I say that standing in line at the post office has never been more fun! Instead of checking email or surfing for football scores I can get some well needed practice and gear up for the next World RPS Champs.

Rock, Paper, Scissors (Ont)
At first the documentary about the Walker brothers who take the childhood game rock, paper, scissors (RPS) to new heights, feels like a mockumentary. There is the chain-smoking recruiter, the bathrobe-wearing playboy whose game strategy involves becoming “one with the rock,” and the two brothers who dream of the game becoming a money-making sport.
But quickly the surprising twists and turns of life divulge the realness behind the innocence of the game. The journey parallels watching a rock band get its feet wet. There is fame, glory and fierce competition. Get to the theatre early or you’ll be playing RPS for tickets.

It's funny to think how it wasn't that long ago that I wasn't sure anyone would ever see this film. Now we've had a world premiere, won an award, been invited to a bunch of others and are now flying out to Victoria for the second public screening ever. It's all very cool. Kind of surreal, but very cool.
We decided to scrap the street RPS tournament after the screening - too many thing to organize from afar and really I think I just want to enjoy the night, have some drinks and chill in Victoria. The prospect of running around to coordinate just has no appeal whatsoever. Not mention the three hundred mardi gras necklaces I would have had to lug over there. So drinks it shall be.
Anyway, that's all for now. My wife is packing around me right now (we just bought a house) and I should probably turn my attention to that.
