I keep on falling on surprising videos on youtube recently  :P

Never heard of him, it's a nice act, particularly the end.

Reminded me of Barnesy at the end actually - seemed like something he would think up (now to get him to try it ;)). It's a great idea though.

I quite enjoyed that - the violin is my favorite instrument as well, so that was a bonus.

That was a nice act. Nice clean tricks that I like. And the attractive looking live musician is totally a plus ;)  The end was sure impressive, I got to work on my two in one hand. That guy looks familiar, I think I've seen a picture of him, doing 4 diabs like that. I just cannot remember where.

very interesting act. some very well done tricks near the end with excelent controll. 2D in both hands was sick! i tried 2D rocket start into one hand and it ended up smacking me in the face :-\

Ah cool!  Like Tommi, I'd only seen a picture of this guy before.  Thanks for posting the link.  I think Luke B pointed him out to me one time after I was playing with the 2 in each hand thing Duncan correctly identified as my bag.   My one handed rocket start is pretty good, but I've never had 2 in each hand very reliable from a self start.  If I remember correctly, there was some footage of Ryo Yabe doing it unsurprisingly well at a WJF fest (maybe the first one).

You remember correctly indeed.

Wow, I never thought about what it would look like putting the 2 sets of diabolos in front of each other like that. Lots of visually interesting possibilities.

Classy performance too.
