That’s right guys and dolls. The great Danny Machal has earned a seat at the table of the BubbleGum elite. Second place in the second 2009 quarter of the BWC (bubblegum world championship). When I recorded that first fluke bubble around the middle of May I posted here and put it in my YouTube channel. People started to watch it and I discovered the notations feature for YouTube videos. So, I put my url in there in a whoreish plea to generate website traffic. It worked. I figured with all the new media marketing hype floating around, I’d see where I could take it.
I got educated about bubblegum and what it took to blow monsters. What were the pros using? How are they able to do it? Can I learn to do it? Two words will answer all those questions – Dubble Bubble (get some).
I knew about the BWC from my research but I never really thought about entering. I kept recording bubbles and posting them online as they got bigger and bigger. It was the BWC commissioner Bobby “boom boom” Bickerson that approached me and said I should give it a shot. What did I have to lose? Worst case I get last place, but at least DannyMachal.com will be posted somewhere new, which is what I really wanted.
So the results came in and I got second place! How cool is that? Alright let’s say it together, ready?
“I know the number two ranked bubblegum blower in the WORLD!”
Big thanks to Bobby and the BWC – this is so much fun.
Here is a link to the results.
Below is the video my entry came from.

Man, it has been way to serious around here lately. I ate about half a roll of bubble tape and turned on the flipcam just to mess around. I ended up blowing a MASSIVE bubble gum bubble.

Ahhh Harold makes a new friend!
I’m really enjoying this story, so I’ll keep on writing it. I hope this isn’t boring people to death.

This story was inspired by the prompt over at Jeff Hites http://greathites.blogspot.com/. The prompt was, “in the largest bookstore in the city. “ I don’t know how it came to what I have here, but it did.
So here we have it, “Harold the Ardently Knight of Battynannas: Part 1.” It is a long read, about 7 minutes if you don’t fall asleep. I’m still knew to all this stuff. Suggestions are always welcome, especially in regards to the audio.
