Following up the first Voodoo Jam Hype Interview with Mark Kuhlmann, Ron Monis is up next! Ron is from Chicago, and has been killing it on the AM Flat Circuit! Without further a due, lets get into this!

How you feeling going into the Voodoo jam Ron?
Pretty good year so far, 1st in Toronto, 10th at Jomo. I’m pretty pumped up for Voodoo. Looking forward to hanging out with everyone again, meeting new people and hopefully pulling a trick or two during my run.

How important are contests in keeping yourself motivated?
Contests have definitely pushed me to be consistent, but I love the feeling of coming home with a bunch of ideas and trying to incorporate those ideas into my links. I try to change up a link or two for every contest just so I don’t get bored practicing the same thing all the time.

Road trip from Chicago or flying to New Orleans?
I’m road tripping this one with Todd Gully. I love driving long distances. All I need is a large coffee and an ipod full of Neil Diamond and Rick Astley and I’m a happy guy. Todd is a good travel partner. He puts up with my fruity music and we always have these crazy discussions about aliens and religion.

Have you been to the Voodoo jam before? If so, how many times have you been?
The last Voodoo I attended was the one in 2004. I took dead last!!

Who are you looking to as the main competition for you?
Todd Gully and Pralex are always a big threat. Todd and I have been competing against each other for over 20 years and he always manages to kick my ass. He totally pushes me!! I’m actually thankful that Todd didn’t go to Toronto with me! There’s a handful of guys from Texas that also kill it, but there’s just too many of them to list. The thing I love about the expert/masters class is that for the most part, we are all good friends and are stoked for each other whenever one of us does well. Afterwards we all go out and party anyway and it’s all good.

Are you planning to drop any new tricks at Voodoo?
Probably not. A lot of the tricks I’m working on at home are straight line rolling tricks, around-the-worlds, jugglers, stuff like that. There’s probably no room to do that stuff at Voodoo. I don’t really have any big tricks, I just like to link and flow, so I plan on doing what I’ve always been doing at contests, maybe change up the order a bit.

Who are you really psyched to see ride in general in New Orleans?
I’m just looking forward to meeting new people. Looking at the registration, there’s a bunch of people that I haven’t met yet and know nothing about so this should be interesting.

Are you ready for Scott O’Brien getting crazy on the mic?
Yes, I’m looking forward to his bicycle kicks, somersaults and cartwheels and craziness on the mic!!

Any closing comments on the Voodoo jam?
Get your asses down to Voodoo Jam!! New Orleans is an awesome city with great food, great vibe and good people!!

Thanks for your time Ron! Good luck at Voodoo!
