haha someone missed the joke. 

Thanks for the comments.  Yea, the syncing was kinda hard cause we're not looking at each other for the one and the 2 we're just gonna cut it out. 

Ben: People use the word "stole" too freely.  If I stole that from M4U then he stole it from the matrix which is where it's from....

I have to disagree.  The Chinese yoyos that we use at the Chinese folk art workshop has two cups and a small axle yet it's also like a wide axle.  It's just a different make of the same object.  Baseball and tennis, both are balls yet completely different.  Yes?

I call it chinese yoyo or diabolo.  It's interchangable.  It's brand and make that's different.  It's like a difference between a finesse and a taibolo, they're different brands and makes but they both are diabolos or chinese yoyos. 

So you study in a different place than where your visiting and they're curious about the different culture... So what?  Can't they be curious?

You can always improve.  I promise you, you can always improve.  Just suck it up and go practice.

Performances / Westwood Chinese Cultural Night - Diabolo
« on: April 06, 2008, 11:49:12 PM »
The Westwood Juggling Club creators, Matthew and Joshua (me), were invited to perform at the second annual Westwood Chinese Cultural Night. We used "Che" by Jay Chou. I apologize for some of our "antics" shall we say being hard to see but I hope you enjoy it.  We choregraphed it without the music so we had to loop the music.  A couple careless mistakes but overall we feel it was pretty decent.

Over the weekend I editted a highlights video of the entire performance so here it is if you wanna take a look.  There's some pretty sick stuff in there so yea...

Hey guys, it took me a year to get a 3 shuffle down, so just keep working at it, you'll get it.  Very nice work for 2 months...  Wish I learnt it in 2 months... a year *grumbles xD

Haha, next year, Diabology 3? haha Maybe we can create biannual collaboration videos or maybe we can create a "Mad .CA Posse" video with tutorials and videos and such and sell it to raise money for Sean to pay for this great website?

I have some ideas for April Fools add on jokes, pm me if you want to do it next year.

It's here!  The much anticipated sequel to the most popular diabolo video that has been released.  The Mad French Posse has come back and released a second video filled with new tricks in new locations.  After much work, Mister Babache has helped the Mad French Posse distribute 3000 copies to various stores.  Dvd's should arrive at stores on the 2nd. 

Antonin, Trash, JiBe, Priam, Lutin, Eric, Tony, Baptiste, and Vux

9 diaboloists bringing 9 brand new videos featuring the Mad French Posse doing what they do best.  Antonin and Eric rocking all new one diabolo tricks, Priam innovating with 2 and 3 diabolos, and Tony using just way too many diabolos, these are just some of the new parts of Diabology II. 

There also is a new instructional section with all new tutorials, stage performance of Sur le fil, and much much more.  Contact your local juggling store for your own copy today.

Happy April Fools Day.
Got you didn't I?  Please don't lynch me.

That was pretty sick.  Looks like a lot of fun with the three passing onto the second floor along with all the goodness in there.

Again Asa, that is due to bad technique.  It's like chinese whip normally if you cross the string then it'll wrap up.  I remember there being a good post explaining it with a diagram a short while back...  If you could do say repeat genocides with fixed then imagine how many you can do with bearings.  That's why you should do it with fixed, you'll get proper technique so it doesn't look like you spazzed and somehow caught it again...  Fixed for technique, bearings crutch for technique.

The Eric is Eric Bates?  I found this video of him and he's insane at boxes!  You got 3 mini columns!!!  How do you do it?  How'd you learn it?  Reveal it to me!

It does but with good technique it dies slower.  Bearings allow it to die slower even if you screw with it.

No it really isn't.  Bearings allow for your diabolo to keep more of the speed when your technique sucks.  Your bearings are a crutch which compensates for your lack of technique.  If you learn how to do a trick with a fixed axle without losing much speed then your technique is good because you won't be rubbing the cups excessively and spinning yourself around for too long.  A prime example of this is repeat excalibur genocides.  If your string hits the diabolo at an angle, a fixed diabolo would lose alot of spin while a bearing wouldn't. 

Fixed teaches technique, bearings are a crutch to compensate for technique.

Daniel why would you use any other string than the ones on your sticks?  You can use any type of string with any diabolos.  Any of the above mentioned diabolos are stable.  Also since diabolos without bearing shuffle themselves they should require less caring about than bearing ones. 

You sound like your just learning 2 diabolos so I recommend fixed ones.  Any of the fixed ones shouldn't make any difference in learning 2 diabolos.

On the vertax genocides, you should rely more on clean technique then the diabolo (it's bearing right?)  If you watch tempei, his diabolo doesn't tilt at all through all his genocides and it's just beautiful how perfect they are. 

I really liked that gyro trick.  What wrap do you use on it?  Oh another thing I remembered is the antisuicide.  You paused to put the diabolo onto the stick; it would look much better if you just went into it.  It's really not that much harder than a regular antisuicide and it'll look alot smoother.

Keep up the good work.
