Gear / Juggling shops in Dublin

Hi guys (and Girls)

i'm in Ireland for a week and will be stopping in Dublin for a day on the 28th.

I just wondered if someone could point me in the direction of a Juggling shop (hopefully that sells teflon hubs, maybe even a number so i could ring up and order some?)


General / Thanks to Ginger Beard

A big thanks to the Ginger Beard lot for coming down to pontefract this weekend and having a juggling workshop at the Liquorice fair.

There were a couple of different performances going on including staff, fire clubs and of course diabolo.

I was going to have a bash at performing but i was too sto........drunk to even ask.:)

Thankyou guys, Pontefract has never looked better.

Technical / Converting Quicktime .mov to .mpeg
« on: June 16, 2005, 12:08:12 PM »
Hi there any help would be apreciated on this one.

I have just about compiled all the footage for the pontevid.

My digital camera puts my videos into quicktime format but premier or WMM wont read .mov files.

I have got a WINVideo converter and tried to convert the .mov but it is only getting the sound and it makes the .mpeg 10-15 times bigger the the .mov file. :cry:

Please point me in the direction to a decent converter so i can finish this damn video.

Oh god please help :evil:  :cry:

Tricks / Slowcide -> Mini genocide
« on: April 05, 2005, 12:41:46 PM »
Hello  :)

I've been looking at the trick video archive and noticed in the genocide section there is mention of a slowicide to mini genocide.

Nik mentioned this to me at shefcon a bit ago (and i think i saw norbi do one out of the corner of my eye :wink: )

Iv'e been playing with the idea but keep hitting myself in the face!

Please could i have some tips as i dont want to flood the diabolo injuries thread!! :?  :lol:

Tricks / Genocide from arm orbit backhand/scoop catch
« on: April 01, 2005, 12:47:59 PM »
Good Afternoon Ladies and Gents.

I have recentley learnt mini-genocides out of inverse arm orbit and really want to know how to get into to position from regular arm orbit.

There is a bit on Diabology where Erik is in arm orbit, catches it rubber arm and then does a little mini genocide but catches the stick before it does a full wrap around the axle, putting him in the  position  to mini genocide in theother direction.

I can catch the diabolo from the rubber wrist but always enf up with about 2 or 3 wraps in it. does anyone have any tips for making the first stick release a little slower?

THanks :)

Gear / Diabolo Clothing
« on: March 03, 2005, 01:43:06 PM »
I've had a look on the forum and cant see any related threads, so here we go.

As a keen diaboloist (is that right? i cant juggle any thing else so i dont feel like a juggler) i would quite like a Henry's or MB Tshirt to wear down at the pub or when i'm out.

Does any body know where i could get such things??

...back to that @~*>ing shuffle.... :(

Videos / 1D Leg orbit tricks/runs
« on: February 08, 2005, 01:07:23 PM »
Hello everybody

My attempts with 2D are bringing me close to tears so i thought i would see what ideas people had for leg orbit tricks.

All i have at the moment are suicide/slowcide to back, the one where you catch the diabolo backside and then turn (frontside if you skate) 180.

I have seen one where you turn the opposite way and the diablo ends in some sort of knot?? and also Jibe (sorry i keep going on about him but the majority of stuff i have got tricks from are off his web site) throws his stick around his leg which creates some sort of loop i think but i dont know how it works.

Any takers??

Videos / Inverse arm orbit figure of 8
« on: February 04, 2005, 01:55:38 PM »
The only time i have seen this is on the Jibe website.

I know that you start with a trapeze whilst in the inverse arm orbit then flick it back round over both arms, but i dont have a clue how!!

This is the first time i have used a forum so ive just been tormenting my self for the last 2 months trying to figure it out on my own.

Any takers?
