General / Diabolo collaboration: do diabolo not war
« on: March 07, 2022, 02:30:53 PM »
I guess all of you know what is going on in Ukraine :(. So I thought that we can do a collaboration video to show our support to  Ukraine and against this horrible thing. I thought about something like "do diabolo not twar" or "tricks for peace". What do you think and who is in?

I agree with wis the zoom idea is super cool.
Less people than other years, but nice video.
It was nice to take part of it.
Congrats to everyone and keep going with diabolo!
"Martin. super great shots! And you look great in that mustache :)"
thank you wis :D

Congratulations!! Keep playing diabolos! I'm still struggling with 3dlow haha.

What a shame... For me diabolo is about to have fun, research and  create new tricks. Maybe you´ll need months of practice, but when you do it you feel great. Copycats are not cool...

This is based on how I have understood it based on talks with people who have been playing diabolo for a lot longer than me. I can't promise that this is 100% correct but I hope it gives some perspective.

To understand this better one must go back in time to before the change of millenium. To release or drop a stick while playing diabolo used to be a mistake. All of the tricks would be such that you hold the sticks and did throws, over the arms, grinds etc. Stick relesing tricks just didn't exist. People used heavier sticks usually made from wood, with no soft handles or such. Now to do a stick release with this equipment and this time would be both wrong and would hurt you quite a bit. And I guess lot of people can still relate since the sticks still tend to hurt even if we have lighter sticks and soft handles. Catching stick right would hurt, catching stick wrong would hurt like hell. Explaining a trick where you do sun but release the other sticks would be world of pain for you. Your friends could say, "Doing that trick is practically suicide." The trick name "suicide" was quite fitting for a trick that causes you loads of pain.

So times change, turns out the stick release or rather "suicide" trick is just a beginning of it all. Now imagine someone having somebody to whack or spin a hurtful object around in place with lot of people. That's a huge risk of hurting the other people. You would not be hurting yourself anymore but other people as well. Quite fittingly "that's a genocide".  How about mini genocide? Smaller version of genocide yet still risk of hurting other people.

Infinite suicide then is quite logical it's just the same trick that goes on forever.

Integral then? The trick combos were not named until the Diabology dvd set came out. Integral is a mathematic term "of or denoted by an integer".  Mad frech posse who filmed the tricks were mathematics or computer science students so I'm guessing they named it so. Or does someone have a better theory?
Thanks for your answer. It makes sense now. I practice alone, but yes playing infinite suicide or genocides close to people is a "suicide". About the integrals I thought about that meaning related to maths but I wasn´t really sure.  I´m a historian of art, so I´m really interested in history of the modern diabolo style. :)

cool. I wish I had a place like that to practice diabolo high. Practice 4d high outside with the wind is really hard :(

A 4d low progress video among your favorites, I didn't expect that. I like to realize how different other people's view can be. Amazing! And yeah, Ronnie's progress is mind blowing :)
Thanks for all the videos :)
I´m bad with more than 2 diabolos, but I like that video because it shows that If you don´t give up. One day  you are going to reach your goal. 
It doesn´t matter what you play, some people are good with numbers other with 1 diabolo, but the key is to have fun and enjoy what you do. Like fdc video shows  :)

My favourite diabolo videos:
-the black sheep by robin spinelli. Tricks are crazy, location looks great and music fit perfect.

4 Diabolos evolution by Ronnie Slowinski. awesome progress

- 3, 4 and 5 diabolo video by Pieter. It was one the first diabolo videos I saw. I like it a lot

-FDC 2010 - Finish Diabolo Convention 2010 Slow Motion. I´ve never been in fdc but looks like good vibes there

-Adjectives. First time I saw the helicopter. Tricks are still really nice.

I´ll probably add more videos  :)
