Maguggling? Juggagic? [Feb. 19th, 2014|09:14 pm]
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...
