Perry Romanowski from Chicago is a dedicated marathon Joggler (juggler+jogger=Joggler)
He can run a 25 mile marathon in 3:22:45, juggles the whole way, he typically has 2 or fewer drops.
He just set a new world record for joggling 50 miles in 8:23:42. OMG!
Making the whole distance without walking and with only 4 drops. That’s just incredible, so much respect, in my mind that’s impossible!
Read about it on his blog.
Silva Paolo busks outside the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France. Does some pretty cool stuff with an acrylic. His backward roll fooled me for a while there. The vdeo picks up after a minutes or two.
Silva Paolo… any relation to Silver Paul? 😉

Comedy juggling song performed on the Gong Show in the 1970s by Hillary Carlip. Read all about it in her memoir, Queen of the Oddballs. By the way, She Won! Thanks to Void who put us onto this clip over at JTV.
Dutch magician Wouter Bijdendijk, also known as Ramana, said he couldn’t say much about his magic trick.
“This is an art,” he said. “And in India, they see it also as a science. I hope I make people wonder.”
A crowd gathered to watch the magician’s spectacle. Some took pictures, other videotaped and at least one man checked around Bijdendijk for props.
“I just wanted to show that reality is not all that you think that it is,” Bijdendijk said.
