One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

The original tricks list, heavily plagiarised over the years.
FA's Tricky Wiki, the most thorough attempt at an update that I know of. (WARNING: may contain AudioRob - proceed with care)

Mike,
yes, that's my name on the original tricks list.

Now there's stuff I never even heard of. A 'poisoned ivy'? It's just me but I like the tricks that look deliberate and smooth - probably the more basic stuff. I like a nice jacobs ladder that pauses at each position, a 540 that goes nose away, around and back up, a nice flic flac that pauses in the fade. I'm not a huge fan of the speed stuff that's nearly impossible for the spectator to figure out what the heck is supposed to be happening.

I think there are a number of tricks, if not all, that from a different perspective look like the kite has something wrong with it, and is about to crash. Recently there was a video posted of a Freestyle Duel between 2 of the best pilots in the world, and from the 3rd person perspective, it looked like they were flying a couple of broken kites. The same event, viewed from the pilot's perspective was a lot easier to watch.
I thought the same thing as you about tricks like the Comete. Until you see someone do the trick right, with style, it does look like cr@p.

BTW... I want to know what the 'Twisted Sister' trick is.  Cheesy
