Awesome, especially the french disclaimer and 1:35  :D
But it was a nice, fun, funky video overall

that was great! i really enjoyed he flow and style, especially the idea that - well - you can just have ideas (im thinking about the last trick). it reminded me of fini's vid in that aspect, which is a good thing.

Hey Tijn!

Finally a new vid of you :)
I thought you where kinda easy on diabolo lately, but it looks like it's the other way around.

I really enjoyed the way you presented your tricks, everthing was executed with a nice flow.
When you screwed up, the words on the screen did a good job.
Whats up with the wristband?


Keep up the good work!!!

FINALLY. I was having suspicions you were dead.
Waiting for the video to finish downloading. I'll go have a diab..

And back.
Nice. I really liked some of the 1 diabolo suicide catches.
Awww. I was so going to use the advisory in the next video. Oh well. I've got another idea.


In general - Was great.

Martijn's still kickin ass!
It was tricky to see the sticks sometimes infront of the brick wall, but still a great video!

 :o :o :o

Now that I've used my smiley quota up: That was fantastic!

Good to see you're still diaboloing, I thought you might have been having a break, seems like anything but that. Great video, keep on doing what you're doing. Your site was one of the first to motivate me to pick up a diabolo and practice, so it's good to see that you're still active.

(So what've you got for the collab? [insertextrasmileyhere])

Darn you, moffet.

I'm just poor. I'll get crystal suns to learn 3 for christmas if jugglingstore doesn't get taibolos in.

I figure "if the taiwanese can use them for 3, i should too"

Post by: Sharpes on July 21, 2008, 03:39:07 PM
Awesome stuff, I liked the creativity, and it was hilarious! I also really liked that it was only two locations, each had a really nice aesthetic. Great work! take a smaller break between videos this time please!
Title: Re: Martijn presents: Dang-Diggy-Dang
Post by: iroQuai on July 21, 2008, 04:39:44 PM
..most of the time when people use only two locations in a video other people tell them to put some more effort in finding locations - now it's a good thing?

Anyway, there were some creative tricks in the video! fun to watch :)

Post by: nev on July 21, 2008, 04:42:38 PM
just watched this in Southampton Airport - had a relative crowd of 4 people behind me by the end

Nice work there Tijn - well worth the wait

Post by: Sean on July 21, 2008, 05:06:39 PM
..most of the time when people use only two locations in a video other people tell them to put some more effort in finding locations
I think the 2 good locations fit well with the "work in progress I'm letting you in on a practice session" kind of theme (or rather officially "stuff I'm working on"). But, no, I guess a variety of interesting backgrounds is not usually a bad thing either. Anyways...

1. Is that a Jack Johnson shirt?
2. Your white suns have a kind of hyper-glow look to them outside. Lovely.
3. Took me 3 watches before I realized that "look! a worm!" wasn't the name of a new move.
4. Bob and weaved de-interlacing rocks.
5. I like the little suicide move at 0:40
6. 1:34 "The backscratcher" There, the move has been named.
7. 1:41 Nice grawlix (http://www.typography.com/ask/showBlog.php?blogID=122)
8. 1:46 I think I remember you making me learn something like that in a video tennis match way back when! :)
9. 2:02  No, really, what the hell? Nice reaction.
10. 2:07 love that move
11. 2:56 My favourite part
12. "The neck greaser" ... makes you looked possessed
13. 3:15 Ha! Don't worry, I closed my eyes.

Awesome.

Once you're suitably emabarrased we'll change the frame-shot.  ;D
Title: Re: Martijn presents: Dang-Diggy-Dang
Post by: martijn on July 21, 2008, 05:43:32 PM
Ha yeah, what Sean said. I wasn't even planning on releasing this on the forum - it's just a practise vid, I know a brick wall or a bush with lotsa tiny leafs is not a proper filming background (boy, I had to use a high bitrate to make it watchable!) I did put a bit of effort into the editing though. Glad you all liked it! Thanks for the positive comments.

@ Leo: don't worry, I'll have some stuff for the collab vid :)

1. Is that a Jack Johnson shirt?

Ha! It's not actually. It's from a Dutch rapper. I don't know if it's clear, but the print is a tree with hands for leafs (just like the cover of his debut album (http://ondasonora.blogsome.com/images/typhoon_lichtluchtcover_300px.jpg)).

2. Your white suns have a kind of hyper-glow look to them outside. Lovely.

Yeah, that happened on a few spots where the sun shines through the tree above me. Fly's look great on video!

8. 1:46 I think I remember you making me learn something like that in a video tennis match way back when!

Not really... the tennis move was something like an under the leg crossed catch. These backside bounces are a bit different. (although there's nothing new about backsides or backside throws :P) They don't look very impressive though.

10. 2:07 love that move

To be honest, that one is stolen from Arjan as well. I tweaked it to my own style, so I thought I could pull that off ;D

I don't agree. Because I wanted to show them first what a kewl move I found! I'm very childish about it really...
Well since I haven't put out a video for a while it's always a risk someone stealing your thunder.
Other than that, I found the majority of this video not soo intresting. Except for the use of comments and lines on the video material and the happenings.

What I do have to say is that I'm glad you gave the credits for it, that's fair enough.

Liked it, solid video and nice music. Very much liked the style with some stickhits, you don´t see that very often. "Frenchcombo" looked good too.
What were you doing when you bowed your head down in that one clip though?

That last trick looks a little like something I´m working on currently (same start except I only throw one stick). What´s the thought in your trick (it looks interesting)? Geno both? That´ll be difficult... ;)
Title: Re: Martijn presents: Dang-Diggy-Dang
Post by: Aaron Z on July 22, 2008, 06:52:45 AM
What's the White diabolo that you're using?

I tried pausing the video lotsa times so I could see what color the hubs were, which would decide between Sun/Fly but I can't pick it out.

Post by: martijn on July 22, 2008, 11:23:08 AM

I was looking at a worm that was creeping out of the soil. Honest!

The idea of that 2d integral at the end is doing Jako's integral with 2 diabs. Pretty inventive eh ;)

The see-through diabolo is a Crystal Sun and the yellow + white diabs are (fixed) Fly's.

I've only just rekindled my love for the diabolo, and that was awsome to watch, you got some mad skills Martijn.  I love the french body combo bits i've been trying to learn that recently.

Your website is smart aswell.

Keep up the good Work

Haha yeap. They don't look that good on video/stage, but they are by far the best sticks to play with.

I have to ask, though. What is this "rewind" concept. I've yet to find a single mention of it.

Hi

Please post this video on youtube
Title: Re: Martijn presents: Dang-Diggy-Dang
Post by: martijn on July 26, 2008, 09:44:34 AM
I'd rather not put it on youtube, I don't want to ruin the quality ;)

I have to ask, though. What is this "rewind" concept. I've yet to find a single mention of it.

In cigar boxes, it's a category of tricks where you do a series of tricks, then somewhere in the combo, you pause, and do all the tricks backwards. It's like you pause the video and play it backwards. Hence rewind :) Right Matt? (he explained it to us at the Dutch conv)
