Maybe we should consider trying to reach out to diabolists not only via this forum, maybe social media or other forums. Anyone?

I might post it on them polish diabolo forum :)

Will there be another batch this year after the current one ends? I am considering to get 5 for my finesses for Christmas... ( even though it is half a year away)

Tricks / Loop trick
« on: June 27, 2013, 10:39:54 PM »
Hello! We had Sports day at school yesterday and I won the Javelin competition however we had no warm-up so I pulled a muscle, because of that my arm really hurts and I try not to move it. That combined with the fact that my diabolo string broke made me really reluctant to do 4 diabolos, that being said I had to do diabolo so I made a loop for fun and did some loop diabolo, after a while I tried to be a bit more creative, I do not see that many people doing loop diabolo which is sad because of all the possibilities! Anyway here is a small creative clip I did, it is in no way a proper video but it might be some food for thought:

Loop vertax thing

Excuse my "sloppy" style but that is the effect of combining loop diabolo with triple bearing diabolos  ;)

i would really like to see some continious 642s .

To be honest continous 642s would be really awkward, just like continous 552s, it would just be uncomfortable, I decided to go for 62s because they have a good feel and i can already try some combos, for now though I will probably go back to perfecting some tricks and doing suns :P

Also, to everyone on Facebook, Youtube and of course thank you so much! I did not expect the video to be this popular, it has motivated me to keep training and maybe do a summer / autumn video (although don't take my word for it) I can't wait to meet people at EJC!

Personally I love numbers and number vertax, the creativity is great don't get me wrong but I so far I have not seen that many practical uses for this kind of vertax (kamex?), I think that more people should try to learn vertax the way Alexis does because there are so many possibilities! That being said I remember a great video by Aoi with 2D vertax from doing kamex so please prove me wrong with this as well!

I found that lecture quite interesting, I already knew about how the average equals the amount of balls but I never realised all the water terminology (cascade, shower, fountain...)

You might want to check this out:

You have probably seen it but I think it better than working out whether the siteswap is valid on pen and paper, and you get to see a simulation of it too!

What's good about these sticks, besides the fact that Trash used them?

Many people think of it add the ultimate diabolo stick, I have a pair and I prefer Taibolo sticks but people love deos sticks because they have silicone grips combined with a great stick, I am not a fan of the grips but they were my main sticks for a long time,  I don't know if others have this problem but my grip slides off constantly and they really squeak, that is why I went back to taibolo sticks.

Any news on this? Does anybody knows if they will be ready for EJC? Does anybody knows to whom I should contact to reserve a pair of these beauties?

At BJC I was talking to the people at Oddballs, they said that someone recently bought the patent for the Deos sticks and should be produced soon, so I think Play and Oddballs are both going to be selling them! Don't take my word for it though, they could have been talking about some different sticks altogether but I think I am right in saying they meant Deos.

For the 3d part, that sprinkler under the leg would have looked awesome if you got it

I know it kinda looks like a sprinkler but it was meant to me a sun just it hit the string, if I practised the sprinkler then maybe I could do a sprinkler under the leg and then suicide back to normal... I will think about it :P

Also I got my costume to fit in with the Blues Brothers theme, I checked other songs but this was the best one in my opinion, it is probably too late to change the song anyway since the performance is next week

Performances / My BYJOTY 2013 Performance
« on: May 21, 2013, 09:45:39 PM »
So this is by far not the best performance, I was rather disappointed when I looked back on it. However I have to post it because I need help, I will be doing pretty much the same performance for the OJC (Oxford Juggling convention) and I have to know what I need to improve:

My Performance at BJC 2013

I am no master at integrals (if you don't know that by now then where have you been? O.o ) but I am not usually as bad as I was here, my hands were so sweaty and I was so scared, this was the first proper performance I have done and the audience was rather big. Anyway excuses aside, let me get to the point, I know I have to slow it down a bit, my tricks were not smooth but this is because of how stressed I was and I had many drops, I have much longer string since then so I will be more comfortable. Any other improvements people can think of? Be as harsh as you want, I don't mind :P We only learn from our mistakes. Any ways to make someone less stressed on stage would be awesome as well!

No problem like that here on my PC, I know iOS does not support flash but I am not sure if that has anything to do with the video player

Also guys, I updated the thread with the video of my FTS 3-4, it may be currently unavailable but that is only a matter of minutes when the video is processing :P

I'm not sure if it is more catches than Etiennes 5D a few years back. It's official there are 2 people who have done "5D Low"!

I did get 1 or 2 more catches than Etienne but none of us really "did" 5D low, also there are a few more people that have flashed it including Dixie (in the 2012 EJC video) and Robin (in the 2011 EJC video) and many more. Anyway I am sure that since then Etienne has done longer runs, I mean he flashed it in 2010!

So I do not know how this usually looks like since I have only been juggling for 2.5 years but there is one thing I do know, and that is that this year it is going to be hard to follow up from the insane awesomeness of the last collab, I think Lucas did an amazing job and that he should be chosen again although I know he is really busy, also I am not sure if you can even choose someone from the previous year, obviously quite a lot of people will want to want to enter (as would I ) but personally I would like to think of the whole community and I do not think I am fit for the job, it may seem like a simple job at first, after all anyone can put some clips together one after another, but the music (for example) is also important, you don't want to use any copyrighted songs since they would make the video unavailable for other diaboloists across the globe (unless you have a licence) also the writing with the name of the person, I think that Lucas' subtle pop-up was genius! It looked nice, the font was cool and it fitted nicely, as opposed to something like a big title in bright colours and a simple font.

This is not being directed at anyone in particular and I am sure many people may know this but I just wanted to share my first thought as someone who experiences the election of the collab producer for the first time, I will try and search through old threads and try to find something about how it used to be :)

Also, I think that there should be one collab, it would be cool to have 2 collabs but I think that instead of it being double the awesomeness I think that it would be a mess to organise, many people (including myself) missed the date for last years collab and yet I still managed to make it in, imagine how it would be like having it twice a year. Also the collab was one per year in the past and I think one per year should stay, maybe someone could create a poll and see what the community thinks?

Once again, this is not directed at anyone, these are just my first thoughts :)

Videos / 5D (more than a) flash at BJC 2013
« on: May 15, 2013, 06:54:40 PM »
So since I see it it being posted EVERYWHERE (or so I have been told :P ) on facebook I decided that I might as well make it public and show it here:

I was going to save it for a BJC 2013 video but there really was not that much diabolo and others did a great job of doing some so I think I will give up on that.
Of course how could I miss out the fact that without Folkert this would not be possible, a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.....uuuuuuge thanks to you! I will practice my throw-ins as best I can for EJC!

And Wis, I kept my word! Here is the video:

So I decided to beat my old record of 20 seconds and this was the result, it is pretty late so I think tomorrow in the day I may double this:
