Here's my version:
Endless Combo #35 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv
I'm not sure if Adam will allow either of them. When I did the trick, I thought I was launching straight, but watching the video back.... not so much.

Sorry for the late reply, Just got home from work, long day.

I'll have to go with void's trick here as his was a straighter pop before the tap, where as Dimension's looks like it starts the rotation before the tap (if all that makes sense)

Just means you get to attempt whatever void sets!

While you were typing that, I was filming this....
Endless Combo #35 - Straighter! - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

Actually this one looks about the same as my last one... About 30 degree tilt on the pop.... But if you look at the top of the wall and the floor, you'll see that actually I was filming at a slight angle, so this one is "truer". I can probably un-tilt it in the editing anyway.

So, thanks, Adam. Right, I'll have a little think about #36....

Okay folks, inspired by [user]SamB[/user]'s excellent Best Trick at EKO, I give you...

#36 Lighthouse > Clap Tornado

0. Hold a Lighthouse still for 2 seconds (for the benefit of the editor)
1. Throw the tama and ken up with a spin, so that the ken spins (minimum 360 degrees) on its long axis (staying vertical).
2. While the kendama is in the air, clap your hands.
3. Catch the tama....
4. .... and the ken back into a Lighthouse.
5. Hold the Lighthouse still for 2 seconds (for the benefit of the editor).

It's okay if the tama and ken separate in the air, as long as the ken has rotated and is caught back in a clean Lighthouse again.

As well as the standard rules (see first post in thread), I'm also going to specify that for this trick you must:
1. Stand facing the camera.
2. Film in daylight, outdoors. (I'm bored of seeing you all in fuzzy rooms. ;) Fuzzy= fail.)

[user]The Void[/user], [user]Yan Kud[/user], [user]BrandonYoder[/user], [user]Ash[/user] and [user]mreasyguy[/user] must sit out this round.

Good luck to everyone else!

This morning I tried to film the tap lighthouse somersault outside this morning - and the picture was like a silhouette and before I have wanted to film in the evening - so will if it is evening/ morning/ raining etc will there be exceptions?

Point your camera away from the sun, not towards it, and you won't get silhouette. If your camera has exposure options, that can help too.

Sorry, no, that only turned 180 degrees. I want a full spin.
Yay for filming outside though. :)

As you were, people.

Hopefully this is better - I did a cheer on this one because I did it 3 but only 180

Next step is
37. Lighthouse -> Drinks Break

It just a fun and simple trick
0: hold lighthouse still for 2 seconds
1: bend down and pick up a drink (it could be anything - preferably something coloured)
2: have a big sip - still while balancing the lighthouse
3: bend back down and put the drink back on the floor
4: hold lighthouse still for 2 seconds

AND! Please film outside and facing the camera

Good luck
Rob
