YouTube – Anthony Gatto – Full Act

11 minutes of Anthony Gatto performing on 20/4/2004 in Frankfurt Germany, including 9 rings and 7 clubs. It’s clear that he doesn’t even begin to think about dropping. He’s performing in Cirque du Soliel’s Kooza now.
I prefer my juggling mixed with some dance and movement skills, but it’s worth seeing this clip for a display of pure technical juggling!

MoM Layout Updates

0028.jpgHi, have been messing with the Layout of MoM. What you have at the time of posting is not the new look, just an intermediate that I’ve been using to develop the new code. It should work, but colours fonts and layout need work.
Put it live to test a few details, if its broken for you, wait 30 seconds, refresh (I’m changing lots), and if its still broken please e-mail me.

New thing: Social Bookmarking stuff: see “share this” below.
