Probably the most shocking thing you will see this week.
The “No animal circus cruelty” crowd can lay off on this one, I’ve been bitten by enough of these little critters to have a grudge against them – despite 20 years of vegetarianism.

Once upon a time… by Capucine

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Once upon a time… from Capucha on Vimeo.

A breathtaking story by Capucine. Starring baby monkeys lost in frightening trees, a witch, crocodiles, a tiger, a “popotamus” and a lion, and even a “tremendously very bad mammoth”. There are also magic powers and an orange ring, but sometimes, “something goes amiss”.
Bring your popcorn and enjoy the show.

Yesterday’s Friday fun, a bit late. 1000% Cute. Warning this video may have anti-contraceptive effects.

Interview & Video – Okotanpe / Mr Fuse

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

When it comes to smooth, polished technical contact juggling, few people stand out as much as Okotanpe (Mr. Fuse). His JCJC clip has racked up millions of views on youtube (and every other video sharing site) making him one of the Internet’s most popular contact jugglers.

Ministry: Where do you live?
Fuse: I live in Chiba, Japan.

Ministry: Is there a community of contact jugglers where you are?
Fuse: Not really, but I often play at Yoyogi park which is a famous place for contact jugglers.

Ministry: How would you describe contact juggling?
Fuse: The most beautiful entertainment that I’ve ever seen.

Ministry: Why do you contact juggle?
Fuse: Because I feel great when I contact juggle. especially the palm circle isolation.

Ministry: What is the best piece of contact juggling that you’ve ever seen?
Fuse: Michael Moschen of course! Labyrinth(movie) was my first time I saw his work.
I was impressed deeply. then I watched In Motion(by Michael Moschen). It was an amazing performance with more than just technique. That’s awesome. I was shocked. I was happy.
Also, let me say one more… The open stage at EJC2008 ‘Intrika’. (LINK)

Ministry: What is the future of contact juggling?
Fuse: I think people will increase the number of balls. but it will always go back to just simple technique to show beauty the ball.

Ministry: What do you think about when you are contact juggling?
Fuse: The line of ball as it passes the body… the next action. Where should the ball go next?

Ministry: Any advice for people who are learning?
Fuse: The most important thing to image what kind of contact juggling you want to play. Remember, ball movement should always be nice and smooth. Learn to know and feel how your body works and to see yourself objectively. Play with a ball a lot

Below are two amazing clips of Mr. Fuse in action.
