Johnny Archer and Nick Varner at FastMikie's Fun House!

World pool champions Johnny Archer and Nick Varner
gave me private lessons for the last 3 hours.

Archer ran 120 in straight pool.

I got it on HD video!

Thanks for your kind words...

I'm thinking the video will be here soon enough. Probably in the next few days.

Mikie,

Sounds good, looking forward to viewing the video. Did you use your Flip HD to record the moment?

Due to your use of the Flip HD I am looking at it or the Sony Webby (?). My thought, sight unseen, is that I could use one of those flexible tripods and mount the camcorder to the pool table light to get a birds-eye view of the action. Figure it might help myself and team mates to solve issues that might arise in our games.

As your previous commentor mentioned, your videos are great - especially enjoyed the Sorto Rotation.

I didn't use the Flip camera because it only holds one hour of video and the session was going to be 3 hours, at least, so I used my Canon HD camera with a hard disk.

Thanks for your kind words.

That's a real good idea for using the Flip camera and a flexible tripod. Check out the Gorilla-pod on Amazon at
