Well, it would be better off if someone else could pull it off infront of a video camera. I got kind of burnt with the two stick hits in a row, so I must gather some courage before I try to get it solid...

I'll go outside and practice it later and see what I can do about it.

Finally got 2d high to work somewhat consistently today. Only took about half a month’s worth of time to figure out how to make it work that much  :oops:

I was working on genocides today.  On the 24th attempt I broke the string on the right hand side.  Since I don't have any replacement string, I learned that having extra string would be a good thing

Matt Halls body wrap, No minigenocides or anything, just the wrap and I'm pleased about that! :)

How come this thread isn't a sticky???

Its not really something people will go searching for or be pointed to, and it will be active enough so its easy enough to spot. I guess.

2d shuffle if getting better, 2d leg stall, slack whip trapeze thing, more tsuff around the leg, arm orbits, hand swap suicides, slowicides and arm stalls. Think thats everything new.
If you see me please feel free to come over and give me some advice. Thanks in advance.

I use red and black circus's, wear to much black and will be at the BJC.

Finally nailed a load of vertax genocides today.  Probably managed about 1 in every 3 attempts considering sometimes I got a load in a row and other times there was a severe lack of success.

Thanks go out to Matt Hall for his workshop at the BJC where I learnt the vertax magic knot whip catch as well as got plenty of great tips on the genocide, cheers!  :D

i also learned vertax genocides today :D . the normal and one with a stopover at left, two magic knots around the left stick and then do a (mini)genocide. it's even more easy than the normal one because you don't have to pass the stick

Nice, however, I found one of the key tips Matt gave me was to not switch sticks until after I catch the diabolo, this vastly improved my accuracy and chance of catching the diabolo and so for this reason I'd probably find the magic knotted one harder.

Also learnt "proper" infinate suicides yesterday (ones without a wrap), Guy should be pleased...even though I do use the normal inf suicide to enter and exit it, we can glaze over this  :wink:
