Title: Cleanest trick idea
Post by: Coolaqw on August 20, 2013, 07:46:12 PM
I think that diabolo.ca should have a cleanest trick contest . We can see how clean people can do tricks!
It would be amazing if you did please support! We have to pick a trick, first I thought we should do any trick we want but then it would be too hard to mark. Please tell the forum what trick you want us to do!  And please it was an idea a thought if you don't like it please just comment say I dont support i just wanna see how it goes.

Wtf? I usually work in a sterile environment, just to make sure my tricks are always perfectly clean.
 
Sorry, but thats it, this is the one that hits me the most I think. It started me thinking and stuff.

In reaction towards the topic starter, great idea, but imagine this:

Why not always try to film something the best way you can think of? The cleanest way?!!! Try for f sakes, please a hundred times if necessary.

And why not always have interesting and new material in a video? And what is new anyway?

Youtube online video sharing has destroyed the quality of juggling videos available throughout the internet.
It's quantity has increased in huge amounts though. For anyone who cares about that "****ty cam quality & terrible bedroom light" authentic touch to a video.

And no, never will I join in on such silly games you fool. No thanks, not even for the fun of it, cause that's just not me.  ;)

I did this idea because most tricks for 1d in video are in combos i wanted to see how clean they can do it just a single trick.

Name a trick, challenge someone to do that clean, watch it and have mind blown, go to sleep.

^ This. Some tricks i've only ever hit clean once and made sure it was on film when i did.

If you release a sloppy trick on video. You are sloppy.

Definitely, if you release sloppy trick, you're sloppy person. Some people might like to be that way, anyway. IF you don't get what I mean, you might want to take another look to sloppy seconds video released by Projekt NMN. Maybe it can make you realize...

Dont know if you realize it, but that ain't one trick mate, thats a sequence.

I would really love to be a part of this. Please film a video of yourself doing the trick  fts 2-2-22-22-1-2-3 before i will make the cleanest video of this.

How about we do something more people can do

Post by: Chloé F. on August 22, 2013, 02:57:32 PM
Maybe an easier trick would be... Realisable for more diabolists. I personnaly can't do fts, even with 2 diabs... :-|

Heheh how about  some integrals or around the back?

No, you sayd fts 2-2-22-22-1-2-3 and thats the only trick i want to do now. Please film it very clean

I fail to see the point of this. You are looking for a single trick? How do you define a trick?
I would understand if we would take a basic trick(like the elevator:) ) and make third base
videos out of it, but taking a identical trick and trying to see who does it most flawless
does not strike to me as being really interesting.

I doesn't really work at all with Diabolo, but that doesn't mean it's not a good idea.

Aaro let's do instead with sandwiches, i suggest starting off slow with the classic 'Ham & Cheese' i'll post pictures when i'm done. (I promise i'll only have 1 attempt.)

Lz, I'm in but should we choose something else as I don't cook meaty things.

Of course, apologies. Shall we start with just Cheese?

Cheezy it is and will be.

C'mon, if somebody wants to make an activity related to diabolo, and use the forum as a support, maybe the amount of posts that are jokes or 'I do not see why that is fun' could be less than half, uh?

About the competition. It was suggested a crazy fts (that I cannot do) and accepted by Tipper and Jannis. So, come on, you can play between you three (Tipper, Janis and Coolaqw) this first round, and then you can choose another trick for the less skilled people like me or Chloé F.

Once said that:

I'm a fan of the idea! I'll have to skip this one, but I'll definitely attend at some other trick!

Post by: Chloé F. on August 23, 2013, 05:56:52 PM
@Arjan and @Ronnie. I hope you weren't serious :P when I say an easier trick it could be like an integral with 2D or something hard, but many people can't do fts, that's why I said it's too hard...

Does anyone remember the days when fts was a proper classic trick that was learnt as standard instead of some stick-twirling poncy-ness?

yeh but whenever every single diaboloist does a 'classic' FTS in all their videos it becomes boring and samey and eventually unimpressive. Whereas poncy stick twirling is new and unexplored and therefore interesting.

It´s been explored for a few years now and it all looks the same... It´s a rare, innovative video that inspires rather than twirls.

If by new you mean really old and well explored, then yeah... I guess its new.

Post by: kampfjapanertaro on August 30, 2013, 11:27:32 AM
at the german forum (diabolotreff.de) we had the same topic and idea to film just one trick and see who lands it best. i guess we even had a trick chosen but noone has filmed anything. I believe it´ll be the same here as it was in Diabolotreff.
And i agree with Arjan. The Quantity of the videos have increased so that nothing is special anymore.

Then i guess this part idea is over

I think that this seems to fall in same place as the consistency trick idea. Which hasn't taken off that well.  Most of players seem to like to just consume videos. In the world of too much good videos I prefer to meet people and play with them and learn stuff.

Videos you can watch everyday but meeting other players is rare. I would (and will) go to conventions instead. ;)
