Would that be the one with the ginger hair? ;)

That would be Ginger Tom then, all pontefrecians are well versed in in mini-g's, even the Bar lady of the counting house pub.

I loved it. The whole feel of it was so smooth.. Unfortunate of the tape messing up.. Tom's string really is short!

I really liked the whole fibe in this video, great music, great tricks. You always seem to have songs in your videos I really like, keep it up!

If there is anything that could be improved in this movie(in most movies out there) it would be locations of shooting the movies, im getting tired of the grass backgrounds in EVERY diabolo video ;D



Sorry if my english was bad I just suck at it,

that must be the shortest string I have ever seen :p, but great! Really like the style and I looove how Sean_ (I think?) has his cigarette in his mouth while pulling of great tricks, that makes it look even easier, classy :).
some people think they are better because they can do something better

When will i see this web of yours then tom?  ???  Anyhow it was a great little vid and especialy like the effect from the "anti shuffle accelerations" (?)  and sean's crossed arm madness that looked really smooth (and obviously the recovery :P).  Crack on with the next bit of filming now!  I wanna see it.

Really good video, I really liked the tweaking and it was a shame the tape played.  I like seán's 2d combo very original

What a save indeed, even you realised that someone was smiling down on you then!  And as for Ginger Tom's short string, you must remember he's only 4'6".

Nice stuff gentlemen, what was that odd looking car behind GT in the beginning?  Looks like a Diahatsu with a spoiler.  And check out those related vids from the "professional juggler at Expert Village.com".  Wonderful.

Very nice -

Especially the eternal minigenocide variation and the 2d move at 03:12.

Good work.

Dear Sean_ and GT,

Great stuff guys.  Permission to steal at will?   ;D

I've GOT to get over to the other side of the pond and hang out again.  It's been ages since BJC 2006 and I'm suffering from Brit-style diabolo withdrawal.. :(

Again, loved the video.  Short and sweet.  Sean_, on the one hand, I don't want you to get cancer, but on the other hand, the fag in the mouth while busting 2D is the coolest **** since Cheap Trick's drummer.   ;)

later guys,

matt
Many Thanks to Sean for all his work and inspiration.  Respect to the MFP!
