General / Visually Pleasing Or Impressive?
« on: June 10, 2005, 01:57:39 PM »
Hey Everyone,

Slightly Random post here, but i thought it might be an interesting discussion topic...

I was doing a little bit of diaboloing yesterday on the Cathedral Green where i practice sometimes, along with some other people who were doing various things of the juggling variety, and the topic came about as some diabolo styles being easy to watch, and enjoyable, and some being just so crazy and complex that its almost hard to watch...but very impressive.

So i was thinking to myself, are there different diaboloing "styles", very visually pleasing compared to some others which are less visually pleasing but very impressive. I guessed that a more visually pleasing style would flow very nicely from one combo to the next with suns etc. And a very impressive style would involve very difficult genocide and infinte suicide cominations, which doesn't SEEM to flow so easily due to catching sticks and things like that.

I suppose that this all leads back to the fact that laymen enjoy the much simpler tricks, and maybe don't enjoy the more complicated tricks because they can't get their heads around it?

So do you think that the majority of people prefer to watch something that looks very pretty and nice, rather than something that looks slightly less pretty but is very impressive?

Any thoughts?

Tricks / 3 Diabolos Low: Throw Start, Anyone?
« on: November 12, 2004, 11:00:01 PM »
I'm learning 3 diabolos at the moment, my best run so far has been about 6 catches (2 Cycles).

I'm using the "old skool" throw in start at the moment, the only other person i've seen use it is Guy Heathcote, i was just wondering if there is anyone else out there trying the good old throw start? Or does everyone think the wrap start is the way forward... :?:

Cheers,

Matt P
