Some interesting juggling there to maximize crotch-to-prop time. Even though the intention of the video was to decrease prop rape, there was no need to have so much of it in your video.

The problem seems to have been solved by washers. I didn't have them in before, silly me!

As everyone has said, the editing was amazing!

However, you guys did get the shapes of the tetris pieces wrong, you have two shapes that have 5 blocks instead of 4 :P

Uses of a studded diabolo:

- cooking in the sun
- self-defense
- mirror

I'm really confused as to what the purpose, diabolo-wise, would be. Harder UFO grinds?

Forgot to mention I'm using Circuses with JC's Ultra Leichts; the axle it came with has a bit more thread on one end than the other, but it tightens just fine. I tighten them with a ratchet holding one nut in place while I tighten the other with a crescent wrench.

Gear / Excalibur loosens nuts?
« on: March 09, 2008, 12:06:59 AM »
Lately I've been fooling around with excalibur more often, and every couple runs I'll need to re-tighten the nuts a bit. I think this is because the string rubbing on the cups turns them, which loosens the nuts. Is there any way around this?

2D mini-columns, and left stop-overs (I'm left-handed).
Within minutes of each other, mini-columns coming first :P

Orange with white stripes and black hubs looks like Nemo!


Apparently, she is a professional juggler.

If she can make a living off juggling, there is hope yet for me :)

Born in Brooklyn, NY, this fabulous juggler  [...] After a near fatal car crash in 1994 left her with permanent disabilities, she did what any normal person would do: She took up juggling and moved to the Pacific Northwest. [...]some television performances, including two national appearances, and many community events in the greater Tacoma area. She has studied with some of the greats in the entertainment field; people like Cindy Marvell, the first woman to win a gold medal in juggling, and Scotty Meltzer, of Comedy Industries.

"…she can clearly juggle better than many good jugglers I know."

An easier vid to learn from would be a link to diabolotricks, or a screen-capture :P

When you can't see properly through your glasses because your diab has mucked them up.

Gear / Anodizing Sticks?
« on: December 23, 2007, 04:07:37 AM »
I saw something in Popular Science a while back that had Theodore Gray anodizing titanium to get permanent colors. Would it be possible to do this with aluminum sticks to get some sick-looking sticks?

I too would like pics of your metallic Circus; you can just host the pics on photobucket or something.

What effect would wrapping the string around one of the handles have?

Wiimote+Nunchuk and you get the lightest diabolo in the world; or you could tie your string to it and actually play :P
