Ooh! Juggling!  8)

You know, I think I remember that!

:)

P.S. Nice routine Void.

Well done, enjoyed that!
Someday I'm going to have to witness your yoyo skills as well. I've started throwing lately, having a lot of fun with it!

Wow that is some amazing skill!! So out of all your hobbies which one would you say you are the best at? My guess would be Kenama? maybe? but youre pro at all of them hahahah!

Thanks!
I'd say kendama is the one I've taken to the furthest level.
As for being a pro at [whatever]... I consider that to mean that you get paid[1] to perform/demonstrate/teach it. So therefore I'm a professional... club juggler, hat juggler, ball juggler, fire juggler, staff spinner, knife juggler, ring juggler, contact juggler, poi spinner, yo-yoer, compère, etc etc.

So far I think I've only had travel expenses for doing kendama[2], so the jury's out on that one.  (Do the books count?)  ;)
 1. in money.
 2. Don't get me wrong with the "only" - It was great to go to Netherlands/Finland/Japan/Denmark/and, errr... Leicester

 1. ] you are still doing that right?, it wasn't on your list

@Misterwhang Well, I've done a few gigs as a CJer, but I'm pretty ropey at it. Have a gawp at my friend Matt instead:

@Dimensions Yeah, I forgot diabolo. I still do that. Don't really have much footage of me, and you're not missing much compared to what you've seen over on DCA. I am planning to submit something for either the collab or a VOTW though, so you'll see a little something by the autumn.

You never told me you do diabolo ..... :)

To be honest, I'm more scared by the image of you as a "professional poi-ster"!  Great to see you again this weekend, good luck with the onions!  Donald (who once balanced a vegetarian haggis on his head and juggled three bottles of whisky for a photo shoot, and WASN'T paid for it! :) )

It was only once, honest! Me and Ella tried persuading them... "Are you sure you wouldn't like us to do some club passing? Diabolo? No? Poi? Really? Okay then.... " (sigh). Thank goodness there are no photos.

Wow that's amazing! Oh and is diablo hard to get into?

Q "Is kendama hard to get into?"
A1 "No, Big Cup is really easy!"
A2 "Oh, yeah, Moon Circle is really hard."

Point being - the easy stuff is easy, the hard stuff is hard. Basic spinning and control takes 10 minutes or so to get used to[1], and then you're off.
 1. Assuming you have someone to teach you/some good instructions. http://donaldgrantdiabolo.wordpress.com/books-and-dvds/ (http://donaldgrantdiabolo.wordpress.com/books-and-dvds/)
