You may know that I adore both juggling and magic. And it hard to beat when you combine them!|
In many ways, juggling is like sleight of hand magic except it's done without hiding half of it. :) So this combination seems natural, at least to my mind. Wonderfully performed.
(Though YouTube videos labeled "must watch!!!" are generally not worth it, I assure you this one is.)
I like it!
I recently picked up my juggling balls again after several years of storage. I picked it up again as if I'd never stopped. Just for fun though, I tried 4 (something I'd never really managed to do before) and to my surprise I actually managed to maintain it for longer than I expected. Much longer than a fluke, for sure. So I've been practicing with 4, though I find my ceiling isn't high enough.
Excellent! I pick up my juggling balls now and then but I've not been in any sort of regular practice routine for quite a while now. I should do more, just to get my skills sharpened back up again.
That was pretty cool, thanks for sharing! :)
That was indeed rather nifty. ^_^ (Juggling, of course, sends me straight back to thinking of that brilliantly "simple" video for Fatboy Slim's "That Old Pair of Jeans"
Whilst not traditional "magic", I imagine you've been watching Derren Brown's exploits, such as training a bunch of pensioners to steal a valuable painting, with the owner forewarned of the identity of the culprit and the time of the theft? =:D
Yes, I do like that video. I've always preferred three ball tricks as opposed to numbers juggling or clubs. I can actually do every trick in that video except for the split behind the back. (Though I won't claim to be as fast and sharp on them, especially after having only minimally practiced during the last, um, decade or so.)
Haven't been following Darren Brown. Sounds interesting, though...
