Title: VotW: 20 October 2008: Martijn
Post by: Duncan on October 20, 2008, 11:01:50 AM
We have another moderator stepping in today - Martijn's got what he dubs "mini-suicide madness" for you try out.

Tijn edit: check out my 2nd blog post (http://diabolo.ca/some-examples-of-tweakage/) for an explanation and more thought behind this VotW.

Further Edit: Glow Version for those who like all things spinny and glowy :)

Martijn would really love to see a glow version of this!

That would be ace if you found an easy way to swap the swinging hand mid trick - especially with glow sticks

Cool. I think I can combine this with Hugo some way or another..

I don't quite get what you mean looby? during the sun move, or during the turn-around?

Glowsticks is an excellent idea :D I'll try to film that tonight.

Loved that! A great idea and there's lots of combinations to explore.

Post by: Funty on October 20, 2008, 06:32:24 PM
the first little bit, 12-15 second bit is brilliant and yes it would work well with a hugo. i think it definately calls for teeth getting involved on the static stick if thats possible:)

That`s some gangsta ****;-)
I think if you just combine tricks with some swinging like that it can make them look much better!
good work.

Dope ****, a real good find!

Dude since when is diabolo getting so girly again btw?

I beg your pardon? girly?

Lol, I mean poi-ish maybe  ;) Which I'm totally okay with  :-D

What's wrong with girly?
Title: Re: VotW: 20 October 2008: Martijn
Post by: martijn on October 20, 2008, 10:35:04 PM
Secretly, I've always liked poi.

On a more serious note, the greatest tricks in diabolo are poi crossover tricks. Lutin's 2d swing moves, mini suicide tricks (although these can also be seen as 5A yo-yo [counterweight] crossover tricks) and more recently Sergej's butterfly integrals. Arjan, eat your heart out!

haha it looks good, but can't appreciate you're style.

Can't forget the fan airwrap/hyperloop from poi that has become popular today.

Ah of course, I knew I forgot something :)

haha it looks good, but can't appreciate you're style.

How come? Could you explain yourself a bit more? Some people thought my style made up for the trick :P

Post by: Robski on October 21, 2008, 01:39:15 AM
I liked the glow one, highlight on the "stick throw to miniG" (I don't know the proper name)
I think I can sum this up with:
(suicide)Madness? this is sparta!

Post by: nezzybaby on October 21, 2008, 07:42:09 AM
I like your style too... and the trick was loverly... and the glow version looked brilliant...

However please lose the burberry hat... better yet burn it, because if you lose it you might find it again!

I'm just guessing, but since we can't see 'you' in the dark, I guess fasilevi can't appreciate the elements of the move. Am I on the right track?

Post by: Hathaway on October 21, 2008, 09:08:59 AM
That was sexy. Cheers Martjin I enjoyed that I did. More glow/fire for votw peoples!
Title: Re: VotW: 20 October 2008: Martijn
Post by: William on October 21, 2008, 11:05:34 AM
That made a hell alot of difference. I think that should replace the original votw. It looks so much more visual. Agreed with Hath.

Nice to have a bit more movement variation in a suicide combo, good call.

Get glasses.

Nice combo, very simple, still quite flashy and looks great with glow props.

Title: Re: VotW: 20 October 2008: Martijn
Post by: Diabolo88 on October 26, 2008, 12:06:52 PM
Both vids are really nice. Trick is pretty simple I thought (apart from the very last mini-gen combo) but it is so flowy and effectful it´s really good. I´m guessing also getting it that smooth will take some practice.

Tijn, the glowversion is funny for the reason that you could see instantly from the accelration that it was you, your style is very distinct.
