General / Anything great happen in the past two years?
« on: February 18, 2016, 02:47:23 AM »
Hello everyone!

It's been just over two years since I last logged in to the forum. I remember around that time my last piece of string broke and I never got around to ordering a new roll. Yesterday a friend gave me his old pair of sticks so I decided to get back into diabolo.

It's great to see a lot of the old members still here and all of the new members who have joined since then too!
So this is probably a silly question but has anything unique happened in the two years I was gone? Exceptional videos I should watch, new records, 4 low progress, new vertax tricks etc... (just to save me a bit of digging right now, but I'll do some too). The one thing I did check and was surprised about was no new videos from Eljas or Joona (I was always a fanboy :P)

Cheers!

Practice / Beach Days (Practice/Fun Video)
« on: October 03, 2013, 07:10:17 AM »
Made a quick practice video over 2 days at 7 Mile Beach when I was staying near there on holidays with a friend. Nothing too new, clean or fancy. The editing isn't that great either as it's not a serious video.
This is a JTV exclusive video (with download link)!  ;)

Song: Sunshine by Matisyahu
All feedback and criticism is greatly appreciated!

Enjoy!  :-D

Diabolo.ca Policy & Feedback / FDC Major Topic Idea
« on: September 03, 2013, 08:05:11 AM »
Yo Admins,

Would it be possible to get own major topic on diabolo.ca? Then we could get all the past fdc talk and videos on a place where it could be found. There's already eight years of FDC behind. I think this would be cool for all of us.

Like this would propalby make it easier to follow all the videos. like the second FDC2013 video from this year titled 'alright'.

btw. there's third FDC2013 video on it's way already. Would be nice way to celebrate the totally awesome solid FDC main topic. ;)

pea,

Samuli

Thought I'd post Samuli's idea here. Thoughts?

Performing / Australia's Got Talent 2013 Audition Routine Idea!
« on: March 07, 2013, 10:48:18 AM »
Hi all!

Okay so this year i'd thought i'd do my best and audition for Australia's Got Talent 2013! This will be my first performance alon as i have done all my previous performances (street and stage) with one of my good friends, but he will be on a cruise during both the audition dates  :(

Here is a small routine i came up with for the audition round. It is nothing final and pretty sketchy, but i thought i'd film it and post here and to my friends so i could get as much feedback as possible.

Australia's Got Talent 2013 Audition Idea (Diabolo)

Anyway so far afew of my friends said i need to build up character. I can do much better than this (as you should know) but at this stage i want to keep tricks simple but looking hard (nothing too technical that non-diabolo/juggling audience won't understand) and as i don't want to stuff up and not make it past auditions.
ALL FEEDBACK AND IDEAS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Oh and for all Aussie diaboloists/jugglers out there auditions for Sydney are on the 13th of April (my birthday) and 14th of April (when i'll be going) not sure about other states though.

Diabolo.ca Policy & Feedback / Posts Disappeared???
« on: February 27, 2013, 03:01:33 AM »
Hi all!

When i logged in to diabolo.ca the hyper-links ("show unread posts" and "new replies to your posts" have disappeared!
The buttons up top (Home, Forum, Help etc) still appear, then there is a gap where it shows your username, profile pic and the hyperlinks followed by the Diabolo.Ca logo.

Any ideas?

General / Happy New Year
« on: December 31, 2012, 02:45:57 PM »
Happy New Year everyone (it should be new year everywhere by the time most of you read this).  :-D

Mainly just wrote that (pointless i know) also here is a "best of 2012" video i uploaded on my main channel:
The Best Of 2012

NOTE: There are sections of diabolo but i honestly wouldn't bother watching unless you also enjoy skateboarding, scootering, stunts, trampoline and pogo sticks, flips, fails, comedy skits and sketches, vlogging, random stuff, juggling and have 23 minutes worth of spare time haha.

Anyway main reason was just to say Happy New Year, so Happy New Year again guys!  :-D

Videos / Red VS Blue Trilogy (My New Diabolo Videos)
« on: December 24, 2012, 03:52:03 PM »
Hey guys, it's been a while since i've made a thread and even longer since i made a video!

After about 9 months of planning and work the trilogy is here! It has been kept "on the down low" so that's why there hasn't been any hype.

Here is part 1 (My Christmas present to you guys  ;) Merry Christmas!
Red VS Blue (Part 1 of 3): Reconstruction

I really hope you enjoy these videos (wheather it be the music, scenery or ofcourse the tricks) as a lot of work went into it. We spent time planning and creating tricks finding locations, creating unique angles (sorry for multiple screen formats), choosing music and of course getting locations with 2-10 hour long drives and canoing as fast as we could to a marsh island to make a deadline or riding through the bush in 30 degree (celcius) weather!

Part 2 is here!
Red VS Blue (Part 2 of 3): Recreation

Part 3 IS FINALLY HERE after a huge delay!!!
Red VS Blue Part 3 of 3): Revelation
This part has some of my best 2D tricks as I'm better with bearings, but if you really can't be bothered watching it all skip to the end to see some 2D vertax/excalibur stuff!

Additional notes:
- Download link for all 3 parts as one will be up on JTV soon!
- In parts 1 and 2 the diabolos being used are Tiabolo V2, in part 3 Sundia Fly's are being used.
- Sticks are MB Silicone Extremes with MB performace string, in part 3 Henrys green string is also used.
- And of course they are 2 diabolo only videos and a 1D only video (or 2) will come soon!!!

General / PLEASE DON'T REPLY TO OLD THREADS!
« on: December 10, 2012, 03:13:25 AM »
Hi all!

This is my first "negative post" i've made (i think). I just keep getting "notiications" that are quite often useless one sentence replys to old threads. Starting a new thread if it hasn't been posted in a year or more is a good idea (people have been doing this lately) which is good if it is like "diabolo injuries" or "i just learnt" but not if it is something like "need help with 3D) where you could just read an old thread.
My main point is if any thread that isn't like the ones mentioned above is if a thread hasn't been posted on for maybe around 2 weeks, DON'T POST A USELESS ONE SENTENCE REPLY!

Sorry to be negative, just needed to get this out!

Tricks / 2D Vertax Excalibur Trick
« on: November 16, 2012, 02:53:28 AM »
Hi all!

After watching 1 2 3 Vertax i was inspired to give 2D excalibur/vertax a go. After getting the hang of it after a day or 2, i tried to do a sun trick and this is what came out. This was also submitted as a VOTW but got rejected for "not being up to standards with what we are recieveing" I still think this is a great trick!
This was filmed around 1 or 2 months ago.

« on: October 15, 2012, 11:47:54 PM »
Hi all!

My friend and i have performerd several times on stage and had several street performances (busking). We were wondering how do people like Etienne and Guillaume get to perform shows (in particular Chinoiseries) in circus' and in front of audiences who pay good money to see them?

General / IJDB Shut Down!
« on: May 24, 2012, 10:24:39 AM »
Has anyone else realised that IJDB (Internet Juggling Data Base) has shut down after 11 years and 4 days around last week  :'(.
Does anyone know any other sites besides the one Void posted similar to this as it is really dissapointing to see it go.

I'm New / WE NEED MORE MEMBERS!
« on: May 16, 2012, 11:10:43 AM »
Hi all!

Just been looking at d.ca with my phone and noticed there is a who's online, every time I look there is like 30 or so guests on the site and only 3/4members.  So is there a way you would be able to restrict there use until they are signed up. This way there would be more members and more posts.

Now I 100% agree with what Sam said, since usually there are 1-4 members and 30+ guests, and as you may know the forum is going down hill.  :'( So please if you're new and you sign up or if you're reading this and you're not a member, PLEASE SIGN UP and TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
We need you support to help keeping the forum going.

Videos / Diabolo.Ca Collab 2012 Editor
« on: May 09, 2012, 09:38:36 AM »
Hi all!

Although it's only May, I thought since I have been doing more editing than filming at the moment I would like to volunteer to be the editor for this years collaberation video, if thats allright with admins, moderators and other diaboloists.
I have already been planning on how I'm going to edit (music, effects etc), is anyone else volunteering? Because I would REALLY want to be apart of a big project with other diaboloists/jugglers around the world.
If I am chosen to be the editor (I really hope I am) send your clips (3-5???) to my email (badboy_simmons@hotmail.com) and add your name, country, if you have been in a previous collab video (which one) and if you want age.
I promise that if I am the editor it would be a great video to watch with a new twist.
One last thing:
Is there an actual length to a collab video (I want it to be aound 10-15 minutes) and is there a limit of people to be in one (because I want to fit everyone in)!???

Sorry for length of post and all replys welcome!

Performances / Circus Class Assessment Task
« on: May 04, 2012, 02:27:58 PM »
Hi all!

As I said in the JTV description box of our video I will put it here before you watch just incase:

A circus performance my friend and I performed in circus class last term. We have still yet to perform it to an audience this term.
The basci story line is that I (the kid with blonde hair starting on stage) am doing some diabolo tricks. My friend (dark haired guy) walks on and sees me. He trys to show me up by juggling but fails (on purpose). I show him up again, and he steals my diabolo (twice) then he grabs some staffs. We fight, he "beats me", but then I get pu and finish him with the diabolo and do a final trick. ENJOY! :DDD/nP.S. The reason I ran off stage quickly was to grab a diabolo which rolled off stage. Sorry for the 2 fails (diabolo ones).

Diabolo.ca Policy & Feedback / Diaboloist of the Week?
« on: May 04, 2012, 03:10:40 AM »
Hi all!

Since recently I have been making many new topics and replies (as you sohuld know if you have been online recently). I had an idea that since we have VOTW maybe we could have a "diaboloist of the week" (or month) award or something similar (like employee of the month), and have that users profile on the side of the front page with a little banner on top say DOTW (or DOTM).
Users could win the award by getting "thanks", posting many topics and/or replies, submitting videos and VOTW submissions.
I'm not sure if this would work, but it was an idea I just had to make the forum better.

Tell me what you think  ;).

Performing / Drama and Diabolo
« on: April 27, 2012, 01:01:22 PM »
Hi all!

So today in drama we were told our task for the term. Basically we had to create a compilation of a certain topic using extremely creative and unexplored ideas. Our teacher said it shouldn't be any normal acting and that we should include some or all of the following:
Music and musical instruments, singing, dancing, mime, circus skills and acting if needed in the compilation.
Our group is kind of stuck for ideas but we know we are going to use diabolo (tricks and manipulation) and maybe some other juggling apparatus manipulation.
Please does anyone have any ideas? ANY IDEAS NO MATTER HOW CRAZY?!

Tricks / Excalibur (Vertax) Umbrella?!?!?!
« on: April 26, 2012, 10:25:46 AM »
I posted this in the "Tricks" board too, but thought i'd post in videos aswell. Just a note I had nothing to do with the video, I just found it and felt like sharing because of the trick named above.

Hi all!

As most people know the trick umbrella is pretty hard, i know it is extremely hard and still can't do it   haha.
But just then I found a group of Jugglers/Diaboloists named the "Silver Creek Jugglers" (on youtube).
Most of there stuff is 2006-7/8 but in the video below one of the guys did a VERTAX (excalibur) UMBRELLA!?!?!?! I seriously didn't think that was possible till I saw it. Has anyone else done this before? If you share the link.

(Trick starts at 1:57).

Gear / String For a Video
« on: April 26, 2012, 01:04:33 AM »
Hi all!

Recently I have been working on some big diabolo projects (videos), and my string snapped. That is not the problem though.
I am going to buy some new string:
25m Mister Babache Performnace String (for my MB Silicone Extreme sticks with Pink grips).
and
25m Sundia String (For my Sundia sticks).
The problem is I'm not sure what colour to get. I want to get a colour (of string) that would be good to see on video. I have filmed afew clips with my pink MB string before it snapped and it seems a little harder to see. So i'm not sure wheather to get Pink string to math my MB sticks and Yellow for my Sundia. Please tell me what colour string (or another brand of string (henrys?)) has good visability on video?

Thanks to all who reply!
-Alex
