Pogo stick propaganda written by Aidan Gabriel With editing assistance from Duncan H.
It has been three months since I released my debut trick pogo video, SLUGXURY. Within our pogo community it is not common for people to write manifestos explaining their cinematic creations. However, there is a deeper sentiment I have tried to convey with this project. I have since discovered that a pogo stick video is perhaps an inefficient way to articulate a revolutionary potential. In an effort to rescue the point from obscurity, here I am writing yet another manifesto.
The opinions contained in these pages are my own. It is undeniable that I have been inspired by books n’shit. I just don’t want to imply that these opinions are shared by other members of the extreme pogo sticking community, my friends at Allpogo or Reaper Pogo, or by my friend Earl who is featured prominently in the SLUGXURY film.

I was granted extra special access to a lot of these clips as he filmed them, and I have been getting more and more hyped by the day.
On the night that Earl finished filming and editing, I drove over to Nick Ryan’s (Not The Cube) house and we fired up his TV and a few other things, and sat down for our own little viewing party. By the end, both of us were speechless and the TV speakers were blown – A perfect fit for a perfect video. -> (Read More) ->
