I did a grind on a wire/electric cable spanning the streat  6-7 meter above ground,  It was an amazing trick when it worked. I culdnt nail it more than about one time in 20, so I gave it up after a while...
Maybe you culd do a grind on a cat just to get lots of static electricity and then tell a kid to bring you the diabolo... they will jump in a funny way  8)

This was one of the best tricks I have seen!
Well done!

An insane an possibly impossible trick would be to wrap the string around your arm and somehow get a sprinkler going around the arm... trick of the week if you do it:)

Trick of the week, trick of the MONTH! But I think it should be not that hard... Thanks for idea...

I Still think this trick is extremely hard to do, but dont let that stop us...
I have some ideas on how to enter.
left hand armstall swing the stalled diabolo around the arm and the other diabolo. this will get you into the possition but the diabolos will not have verry much momentum :-(
Maybe its better to start doing around the arm and just frontwrap everyting (including your rigth arm) with your left hand. tried this a couple of times, and it doesnt seem that hard to do.
I think that the best way to enter wuld be from some kind of sun that goes around and wraps the rigth arm so that you have good momentum when you start. Kind of like this sun on the rigth side with rigth stick pointing backwards like when you do arm orbits. Actually it migth be a good idea to start this "sun" from arm orbits...

I have been playing around with keeping the sprinkler in one hand (left hand). you can swing it between your legs in sa sexy way , but beware so you dont sprinkle yourself in a painfull way...
You can also do onehanded suns while scratching your head in a funny way...
Its also possible to release one stick and do a suicide exit from a onehand sprinkler. Personaly I dont like suicides but everyone cant have good taste... :)
Another idea is that when you are "sprinkling" release both sticks at once and quickly grab all the string parts between the diabolos with both hands and get into a stationary position. (maybe you culd hold on to the sticks and point them outwards and still grab the string). i havent a clue about how to get back into the shuffle, but it shuldnt be to hard to find out.

What about foot stalls and armstalls I think they culd be possible to do in sprinkling possition.

Some far out ideas...

If you are one of those peple who enjoy pain you culd try to catch the strings between the diabolos with your mouth. (and get your teeth "sprinkling" all over the place:))

Plenty of spin , fast shuffle and an old string (higher friction)  are important factors for keeping the sprinkler alive for a long time

Wish I could get it on film but I can't find a good angle. My darn head is in the way.

Cant you hold the camera with your mouth? :D

Dracodragon I think that doing some poi culd help you to get the feeling for the handmotions, its kind of the same. Learning fans goes verry well for me, and i now belive that having dabbled a bit in poi is the reason for this.

« on: May 24, 2005, 09:03:59 PM »
Great that it worked! :)
It semed to me that all s-fan exits involves some tricky stuff at the rigth hand  side because the string was crossed in the "wrong way". So I thougth there ougth to be some way to get the string crossed in the "rigth way" to make the exit simpler. A sun to the side twist the string 360 degrees. here we go...
 Trying to find ways to exit with one diabolo with the string in "the wrong way" was a good way to get and test ideas.
There is probably some way involving a couple of "swings" to make a magic knot on the left stick as well...

This is a sligthly confused theoretical post , if you dont like or understand it. just ignore it. :)
Im not an s-fan expert, but I have a background in mathematics and physics (and even in metapysics...)
 When I tried to figure out why the diabolos start to tilt I came up with the following theory (based on my experiments...)

While in the s-fan each diabolo swings around in a plane of its own,
in this post I´ll call them "swing planes". When these "swing planes"
are paralell (both diabolos are then moving in the same plane) the
diabolos will stay in line. When the "swingplanes" start to differ
(so that there is a small angle between them)
it will cause the diabolos to start to tilt in opposite directions
(generally onetilts  backwards and the other forwards).
If one "swingplane" turns to the rigth it will cause the diabolo
swinging in it to start to tilt backwards.
If one "swingplane" turns to the left it will cause the diabolo
swinging in it to start to tilt forwards.
Its more or less just like when you do string corections with one diabolo.
When you do the s-fan you can control the alignment of the two "swingplanes"  with your handmovements.  And thereby you also control
the tilting of the diabolos.
If you for example want RH diab to tilt backwards an LH to tilt forwards you shuld turn the RH-swingplane sligthly to the rigth and the LH-swingplane sligthly to the left. (RH diab passes a bit  to the rigth of where LH diab passes when they are as far away from you as they get).
If you want to tilt both diabolos forwards you shuld turn both swingplanes  sligthly to the left. (just turn to the left).
This shuld provide us with a method to correct the diabolos when in the s-fan.
Jupp thats about it...enough theory back to play around with diabolo:-)
Anny comments or thoughts?

General / What makes for an interesting diabolo video?
« on: May 24, 2005, 01:17:52 PM »
Great toppic!
I think there are different kinds of diabolo movies. A educational diabolo movie is good if it explains the trick its about. If its a fast or "tricky" trick a slowmotion is a good idea. Otherwise i think that the artistic aspects are secondary in this kind of movies. Its how well it teaches that is the main thing here.

Movies with new/innovative tricks are interesting to watch for other diabolists because of the trick, artistic aspects are always nice but not really nessecary in this sort of movies. We will watch them annyway...

The points sean made is much more important if you want to make a movie with artistic ambitions, I agree with all of them and wuld like to add a few things I think can help:
-The performing diabolist shuld be enjoying himself.
-Playfullness...We are having fun after all, dont we?
-It culd be cool to have parts in the movie filmed during a live performance.
-the movie shuld be inspiring, make others want to try for themselves...

I also think it wuld be nice to have some movies with fully develloped stage/circus routines here as well.

I shuld obviously spend more time whatching old movies lots of cool stuff there
Annyway I got another Idea for an exit, it involves one of those freaky swinging fans that JGherkin does in his fan-video. (no I cannot do them yet...).
Idea is like this.
If you do one swing with the lefthand diabolo the string will change its crossing.
Its kind of like when you do a sun with one.
Now the string will be in possition so  that you can exit the s-fan with a simple magic knot from below on the rigth stick.
I tried to do the moves with one diabolo and it went ok.
Also tried it with "nonmoving" (on the ground and lifting them around) diabolos an it semed to be working.
Maybe some of you "swingers" culd try this out and se if it works...

//Edit clarification
Having whatced te swing I have to make clear that I meant  the LH diabolo shuld pass outside Lh once and no more swinging than that.

Seems like fans is my cup of tea... Im actually suprised (and verry happy) that learning them goes so smootly. Maybe its a mather of puting things I already knew together in a new way.

Hoop, yes thats me. Im a streetperformer (circel shows) and my clowning character is called mr pink. Reservoir dogs is a verry good movie, but unlike the mr pink in the movie I do belive in tipping...
It would be pretty silly with a streetperformer who doesnt belive in tipping...

Aha! If you are not doing it on purpose then its not a trick... :wink:
Stay away from the sprinklers for a while, they are almost impossible to do without some kind of wrap acceleration. So keep working the shuffle and start working on acceleration when you feel you are ready for it, then sprinklers...
Btw I can now do the s-fan, its cool it goes on for almost ever...
I exit with the clasic tangle... works sort of every time...

« on: May 20, 2005, 04:37:47 PM »
Let the diabolo swing over your arm and you will get into a lefthand armstall. from there just throw the diabolo into the shuffle. Safe and simple...
You can also undo the wrap by letting the other diabolo swing around the wrapped one on the inside and get the other diabolo backwraped. I think this is called transfers...
(place the diabolos on the ground and put the string in the possition and move the diabolos untill you know what to do)
Good luck!

I dont really know mutch about these things, but maybe the 2diab sun culd be wiewed as a multiplex throw of some kind.

Thanx Martijn that entry worked verry well for me.
Its good for beginners since you have some time to figure out what to do next...
I thought out another start as well.
Its inspired by the armstall exit sean does in this video.
Get to this armstall however you want to.
From there swing the diabolo around to a stopover on left stick and then just start the s-fan by undoing the stopover.
Got it working...
I now belive that this is some type of magic knot variation.

Its a great video sean, I really like it a lot! It will be of great use to me and everyone else when we are working on the s-fan exits..
 Ill start to work on the exit as soon as I figure out how to start the s-fan...
I have watched tis clip at leas 10 times and i still dont know how the entry is done... It looks so simple and smooth...  
How do you enter te s-fan?  Is it just a simpel "toss and catch from above" with the left stick or is there some tricky thing going on?

General / diabolo jokes
« on: May 18, 2005, 09:02:04 PM »
Well done! The birdstrike is not an easy trick it usualy takes several years to master... Some crappy jokes to amuse my fellow diabolo players, You are the only ones wh migt possibly laugh at them...

Why are there so few diabolists at this juggling convention?
They all comitted suicide...

Diabolo?? Isn't that some kind of satanic mass suicide sect from colombia?

Are you a member of the diabolo fan-club?

I really liked the movie verry good tricks, the behind the back sprinkler is one of my favorites. And the fans... how long have you been working on them? They are soo nice.
You are linking the tricks together in a good way as well that make it more interesting to watch! 8) (Good if you are working on a stageroutine)

My C- fan is now solid I can enter it 9 times out of 10 and keep it going quiet a while. And today I finaly lernt how to exit as well!!  You are rigth Ed its easy when you know what to dobut if you dont its a mysterium... Its a great move different from the usual shuffling and not at all as hard to learn as I imagined it to be.

Tricks / Ideas on fans...
« on: May 16, 2005, 07:47:35 PM »
Yes that would probably be the entry
Sprinkler turn 90 degres to the left and start to "fan" with the sticks as fast as the sprinkler is "sprinkling"'
It wouldnt  look like a sprinkler, rater like a normal fan but smaller and about three times as fast... point is that the sticks are pointed at the center of the pattern.
