From the 2008 EJC, Furet (Nicolas Longuechaud) from Paris presents a new piece of isolation performance with rings which makes me smile. I liked it enough that I made a cheesy fan poster to hang on my wall.
greatest of the hoop isolationists
Cheers to Furet for the ministry credit in the video. We remember him when he was just a kid on some internet forum 😉 Be sure to check out : Other Furet videos you haven’t seen yet!

CG or not?

Interesting debate going on over on rec.juggling; ManiacDrew asks the question: crazy basketball tricks… too crazy?
Decide for yourself:

The 2 ball headroll and 3 ball balance is especially questionable… but I think its all possible.

Manipulating Cubes

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

an awesome six cubes diamond

Hi everybody! I’m writing here to share with you what I’m working on in this hot summer here in Rome (with playing banjo :P). I’ve been inspired by Ryan with his cube in an old vid, and also Shay in ALTER EGO has tried to use a cube as a new object to manipulate. I respect so much their work, and they helped me a lot to find new way to use cubes. I’m a multiballer, so why don’t try to morph with cubes? 😀 I had some ideas working with 8 (90x90x90, very big and HEAVY), and I think it could work, and maybe it could be (or maybe not .__.) an interesting innovation in morphing and multiobjects contact juggling (considering contamination spheres-half spheres- cubes too).

a CUBE!! dedicated to Mcp! :D

So..I’m studying how to morph the same patterns I can do with balls..with CUBES :) I’ve tried the CUBE (obviously), DIAMONDS, PYRAMIDS and RINGS. I can’t spin (yet, I hope :P) them, but…here on this page you can see some photos!

Yesterday was the Gala show of the EJC – one of the biggest, and best juggling + manipulation shows in the world – We only found out 10 minutes before, that Jeanine would be performing Balledanse in the show – a routine which has been developed a lot since the BJC07 version we posted last week.
Lots of fantastic EJC 2009 photos online at
