VotW: November 28, Tom
« on: November 28, 2004, 09:21:33 PM »
This week's video comes from Tom Derrick. A few of you may have seen this video before since he posted about it on rec.juggling a while back. You had to register to view the video, though, and apparently not many people saw it. I believe it was decided this trick should be named the "Tomcide".

(Tom, I took the liberty of converting the video to MPEG to avoid the usual complaints. ;) )

Keep the videos coming! The stock is starting to get low.

Lovely trick Tom, its good that more people will be able to see it now. (BTW Its my fault its called 'Tomicide')

Jim has put it on diabolo tricks here Tomicide , for those who would like the step by step.

I still havent got around to trying it but I really like the look of it, well done Tom.

Better rack that mind hard, Seàn! If I don't get more tricks I'll have to start inventing silly stuff myself... and you don't want that. ;)

Tom, yes, that's a lovely trick. Coming up with original one diabolo tricks of that kind is difficult - it's an area that has been relatively well developed. Congratulations.

Is a double inverse trapeze into for extra style :wink:  then a genocide out. If anyone hasnt seen that vid yet (then where have they been, lol) then they may want to see what i am talking about, along with some other funky stuff. Sorry Tom, i didnt purposely plug my vid in your post, it started as a compliment and finished as something completely different, me bad. :wink:

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I thought it was good, but it's reassuring to know that other people think the same.
Cheers for converting it to MPEG, Sean. Most parts of computing elude me.
