South Sliders

My goal is to have everything in one place in case of the Facebook apocalypse. Now this is a little tricky but I am doing the first couple of South Sliders to draw your attention to my page.  Anything that goes in a slider is also in an album with over 16,000 photos. Here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/shanesflyingdiscshow/albums/72157600403970854

Then I do a 180 round house kick and use the Flickr albums as embedded slideshow panels because I can’t afford the web space on Word Press. Some of the Flickr viewers have between 500 to 16,000 photos in them.  That overheats the internet and if you are in an album that should have more photos in it, click around on the viewer and it will take you right to flickr to finish off!

That’s easy for you to say! It took me ten years to find the slideshow button! So We can use two styles. One way you can go through our photos one by one manually. Or I can do an occasional slide show with it.

South Sliders is a little tricky and takes some finesse on the phone especially.  I was finally able to get my web page to load on just a telephone connection.  I couldn’t break into  Wal-Mart’s wi fi so I used my phone’s connection.  When you see South Sliders a couple of Slide Shows will move the photos every five seconds or you can push one of those dots to get to another photo.  The FlickR slider is touchy on the phone.  I found if I barely touch on the far-right side in the middle, the arrows come up and I can surf each slider with my thumbs.  If I bump it too hard it takes me to Flickr.

You can pause the Doobie Brothers or let them loop on. I have more tunes at the bottom of the page. You can also click the > or < to make the slides move faster!

Hover your mouse over the albums below and click away. I rely heavily on the < and > keys. I often hold one > down to watch my life flash before me.

Steps and Sit Part Three

When you live in a Dog House, your walls take on full mud from large wet dogs coming in from outside.  Your steps get worn.  We know we can fix these things and tidy up when we are ready.  In the meantime, we will practice doing steps and sitting down on command.  We will worry about cosmetics later.

Aroo Hu and Taco Take Shane For a Walk

Aroo Hu our three month old Miniature Schnauzer and Taco Bello our Rat Terrier tried out their new harnesses today and hit the walking trail at Tanglewoof Dog Park.  We had the place all to ourselves but for one kind lady and the new camp bosses were setting up for the season at the campground.

You should try to take two dogs for a walk one time.  There is nothing easy about it especially when one is a puppy. It is a lot like trying to catch a lost alligator. I am pleased with their effort to let me walk with them!  I muted the sound but for my encounter with the kind lady walking the trail.

I often play the long version of my videos because I know people that can’t get out of the house very often.

My eleven year old Rat Terrier and my four month old Miniature Schnauzer are teaching me new tricks  We can sit  on command and with a secret sign.  We can track a rolling mini-Frisbee Flying Disc and we can dig!

Call her at 336-331-3999.  We stayed clean for about 20 minutes then we chased poodles at Tanglewoof Dog Park in Winston –Salem, NC!

Sidekick Dojo Ricky Randy sksst South Rowan

The feeling is amazing at Re-Unions. You look at someone. You even are reading their name tag. Although you see the tag and you are looking at them your mind is stuck thinking who are you! Then they speak, you ask their name, then BOOM it’s like you see them again and your memory is instant. You can see them perfectly. There was a lot of heart breaking going on tonight. Darlene Strickland Harris drove all the way from Florida. Scott Trail drove from Atlanta then turned around and drove all the way home. What incredible energy! Tammy Cook and Cathy Wirtz worked hard to make things happen. Running ANY event is never easy and tends to be the most taken for granted job. They made this fun. Rick Houston’s golf club is first class. He says he and two others own it, but I call it his! His pro shop is second to none. The club house has about 10 wide screen TVs running sporting events. You pass a large neighborhood full of expensive houses into this amazing club complete with lake. If you don’t golf, I would suggest going there just to walk around the lake! It is Warrior Golf Club in China Grove.

Ben Bolick Sidekick Dojo

This will be the first of several articles  about


Not only are The Smith brothers pioneers in their sport, they are also actors and life savers. They have been lifeguards most of their lives watching after their piers since they were 10 years old.  That requires a lot of responsibility. The best thing I can say about The Smith brothers is that they are also teachers!  They share their art with others. They have put in countless hours with their sport and created a life for themselves that only most of us can dream of. 

I heard it said to me once that only %2 of the world is self-motivated enough to run their own businesses.  Then the rest of us need cattle prods.  The Smith brothers are also known as Sidekick Karate or The Gold Dust Twins.

When they were just out of High School they created a sport that made people like Chuck Norris, Bill Wallace and Joe Lewis famous.

When Chuck Norris needed advice, he went to Ricky and Randy’s mentor, Jerry Piddington.

Jerry has been on the cover of many martial arts magazines and is also an actor.  He travels the world sharing his talents.

I was given an opportunity to photograph a Black Belt and Brown Belt promotion ceremony that many of Ricky Randy and Jerry’s black belts attended.

I was especially amazed at one young brown belt that convinced me he could fly.  He could fly because he had motivation from the best martial artists on the planet!  His Father Shawn Bolick is also a student.  But Ben Bollick is Batman!

The Venardos Circus

Venardos Circus 20191012, Asheville NC, Asheville Outlet Mall

My wife and I made plans for one year to make sure we could take a vacation planned around The Venardos Circus in Asheville, NC. We planned to stay for ten days!  The first day of prep two days before take-off, our slide out on our RV broke.  This was our third of three slide outs to break in some manor to hinder our plans.  Fortunately, I found the Mobile RV Doctor  Gary Casto. $611.00 later and an entire day of wrenching we were ready and determined to catch the sold-out show. A dealer would have ruined the trip and charged me twice as much. Dr Casto did some Circus type move and found his tools blindly and actually put on difficult threads blind! I’ve been through some wanna be RV techs through the triad and i have found my Dr. Call Gary ‭+1 (336) 692-5984 if you are in a bind. We thought we might catch a hotel.  But booking a Hotel in Asheville during leaf blowing season is a $300.00 per night adventure for a room. I was thinking the entire time having flashbacks of 30 years on the road as an entertainer, thinking, imagine my problem times 20 other entertainers!  These entertainers had deadlines to meet and have to make the show come hell or broken slide outs!  On our way, we blocked traffic for a while as Asheville makes these skinny turns to the interstate too small for trucks or large RV’s.  I narrowly missed a median sign and but for the kindness of a stranger might still be there trying to avoid scratches on my fifth wheel.

In my thirty years on the road as a professional Frisbee Flying Disc player I ran into the best and worst acts on the road in many different venues.  I learned first-hand how hard it is to market and sell an act.   I had learned the hard way from town to town and had an understanding at the marvel I was about to witness.

I pulled into the Venardos Circus on the last leg of their US tour in the middle of their two-week showing in Asheville. I was awed by the neatness, cleanliness and visual appeal of the set up.  They kept their lot squeaky clean. I was amazed by the signage, the generators, the vendor trucks and the way the entertainers all had many different hats to wear.

Every single entertainer was seasoned often many generations of life-long Circus and stage performers.  This was a rare treat for any town.  Every single entertainer came from larger shows that swap talent.  They swab the decks and wash the floors.  The owner of the Circus takes the garbage out at the end of each show.  Behind the glitz and glamour of being famous in their own specialty arts, they each swabbed the stage, set up the tents, sold the concessions, worked the ticket booths and worked this show 24/7!  You could tell it.  Each act could carry an audience on their own for hours at a time.  However, Venardos produced a show that was nothing short of a Broadway or Vegas show with incredible timing and professionalism! There is no wonder that he is booked for FORTY-FIVE MORE dates all over the United States for the 2020 season. They had to easily work 16 hour days full blast all day!

His hospitality was amazing.  He extended an invitation for me to live with his team for the rest of his duration in Asheville.   I had to think of the love I have for my wife and had to leave because of her schedule.  I did not want to leave!

I understand Kevin is looking for a good sound and light person!  His last stop is at my favorite town in St Augustine, Florida to kick off his 45 town 2020 season!  He will be performing on the same stage as many of the most popular musicians of all times have performed at The St Augustine Ampitheatre! When I lived in St Augustine, I could barely feed myself and my favorite ex-girlfriend!  Kevin has twenty teams to feed and their families! 

Circus families are the greatest entertainers and athletes of our time.  You have to see it to believe it!

You can tell a class act when you meet one!  In this case I met two!  Bubba Blackwell and his partner Ron worked their asses off in 100 degree plus weather for two shows at Smokin’ Harley Davidson in Winston-Salem, NC 20190713!  He treated me to a first-class spot and made me feel at home right away!  I’ll have some video ready before long!  I’d love to see his big truck jumping ramp set up but there just wasn’t room where we were.  I got a kick out of  his five-biker chick jump!  One biker chick was strapped with a nine or a 40 so if he missed she could come up shooting!

Thank You Bubba!

Thank You Ron!

First you have to pick up a guitar or a set of drum sticks then learn how to play.  Then you have to find a dedicated singer or fake it yourself.  Now ,You can stay in your Mom’s basement for 40 years but eventually you are going to have to sell an act.  Most of us can’t even make plans with a Hot Date where we are going to go for the night.  Try Organizing just one show for a band.  You make sure the band and all the band’s guests are taken care of.  Then comes the media.  You want to give the photographers and videographers as much latitude as possible unless they are socially unacceptable.

The first thing you know are the bands fan club is going to come and hold their I phones in the face of the band blocking your pro shot.  It is a new thing.  Watch where the pro photographer is setting up then run in front of him with your Iphones.  But this fan club isn’t getting a shot.  They are moving their Iphones and shaking them with the beat of the music.

No band or photographer or videographer is worth a damn without a good sound and light man!  I would love to met Craig Clarke in Sarasota someday.  I wanted to give a special Shout out to the Sound  man and the light  show guy Larry Hedrick from After Hours Tavern.  The club was clean and didn’t smell like bar rot.  You know that bar rot…..The kind that eats the rubber off the waitresses and bar tender’s shoes and burns their feet!

Diane Hoffman is a gifted singer and musician.  She pulls two jobs and also manages to  keep bands together and finds them nice places to play!  Havoc along with Larry Hedrick the light guy made it  easy to photograph and get video of their metal rock band.  The drummer was set up on a stage and the cymbals weren’t blocking his face.  The musicians didn’t step over each other and made it easy to get full shots and close ups of them working together.  The tough part was getting over all the  IPhones.

Havoc had a Judas Priest like singer in the audience, Brian Meyer and let him get on stage.  Then my favorite, Diane Hoffman kicked off her shoes and sang rock and Roll and the blues right out of the starting gate.  Havoc traveled from Myrtle Beach to entertain us in High Point.  The opening act was  awesome too!

When I get together with Diane I’ll get contact info on how to book her bands.  When the opening act contacts me I’ll pass along the contact info.

Diane made it possible for you guys to use these photos.  Please download the high resolution photos on Flickr and not the stepped on version on facebook.  Facebook has a purpose  But they mash a 30mb photo to 80kb. Give Shane K. Smith a credit when you share, put my name on your album cover if you use them for an album (CD).  Give me back stage passes!  When the money starts flowing pass some around!
