Hello dear forum members,

Arjan and I performed at the Open Stage of the EJC 2005 in slovenia, and we asked 2 people to film it. Thanks to RoB and Ferko for that! We did a technical act, with *hard*  tricks and combos in it. Unfortunately, we dropped a lot. Although, the audience really liked it, and Arjan felt great about the show. So it wasn't that bad after all :) Enjoy the video, and let me know your comments!

I uploaded a WMV version, 4 minutes, 40 mb for you guys: http://66.49.236.16/diabolo/arjantijn_osejc2005.wmv

edit: And the promised MPG version, 4 minutes, 28 mb: http://66.49.236.16/diabolo/arjantijn_osejc2005.mpg

Thanks for these kind words! I also love my new 2d start! It was the only thing that worked the first attempt... (funny that Dai has a similar one in the Feel Good Inc. video)

I know... the quality of the filming was pretty bad unfortunately. :( Too much light, and our white diabs + lightcoloured clothes sometimes looked like one big blur. Ah well, the tricks were nice :P

edit: the MPG version is now online @: http://66.49.236.16/diabolo/arjantijn_osejc2005.mpg

That's a lovely performance, I really badly want to go to a european juggling conevention!

One thing that I have noticed since I started juggling is that I don't mind how many drops a performance has as long as it is a good show and the performers are pushing themselves. Before learning to juggle I would have probably preferred a showy dropless performance.

And that is the nature of a non-juggler, wanting perfection and being overly disapointed at drops becuase apparently we shouldnt (which i guess is true, to an extent) It's also why proffessional performing is a cnut, becuase you have to be 99% perfect.

Great that you and others liked it so much. I just used the well known 'weird trow away the diabolo trick' and added a 2nd diabolo and anti suicide. You only got to think of it :)

Because that way it`s better to watch for you, and infact, when you goo with the flow of the combo, it`s easier to pull, and more fun.
