 :o Almost killed!!!!  I am feeling a big delayed relief that a huge tragedy was avoided.
The video crew now has the "jeopardy" angle they always seek and a potentially compelling documentary. I guess they would want you to complete the project and have the top spinning fast.  They should actually help you with $ and logistics to get the top spinning freely as that would make for a great finale.   ;)

ta0 -Would be great if video crew were paying me but, alas, it is the other way around!  However the producer thinks if we do it right, and he does feel the quality of his video shoot is up to their standards, we may have a shot at getting it on Discovery Channel or something like that. In any case, it will all be incorporated into a DVD with my remade full tops show as well as the largest top in the world saga, at least that is the plan for now.  What we first thought would be a 12-15 minute documentary on the making of the world's largest top has expanded into potentially a 1 hour TV slot.  So not sure yet what all will come of it other than our originally planned DVD.

Cool! The idea of the discovery channel is exciting! 8)

I think that this record has allot of potential to spread the joy of spintops!  :)
