Mmm… Lovely performance, mixing in loads of animation techniques, and some tight, funky boog.

He’s loving being on that stage, and the audience are loving watching him.

Good show.

Addicted to Ball in the head!

Hello people.
I’m trying to spread on the Internet… the production of videos involving the Cucuruto, the stall point on the top of head.
Which I think is the evolution of balance, by independent of vision and develop the touch and proprioception.
This is very popular in Brazil and in Latin America, but I do not see the rest of the world so interested. And I think the ministry of manipulation is the most influential Internet website to spread the activism of this idea of balance. Can you help?

Yes we can, and we love this video :D Thanks
Great music, what is it?

In other bad news, MoM got hacked for the 2nd time, sorry for all the (hidden) links to porn sites – now deleted. We’re trying to deal with it. Drew

Liquid Pop Collective – Eric – The arcade clip [full] & Tutorial

Back in the days before youtube, when it was just cool clips that were passed around on forums and messageboards, everybody had this video of Eric dancing in front of an arcade machine. It should have been the first video ever posted on this site, because it was one of the first dance videos I ever saw that made me think ‘omg that’s magic.’ Now thanks to youtube we get the full clip, which includes some great nightclub footage and some photon practice.

Liquid is awesome. Click below for a very good tutorial applicable to all manipulators.

LCD – contact juggling & liquid robot dancing

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

YouTube Preview Image
After the silly robot intro, LCD launches into a wicked display of contact juggling isolations. To quote Su-nami from www.contactjuggling.org

How is it when you Isolate an acrylic it looks like an incredibly intricate dance form and when i isolate an acrylic it looks like, well, someone isolating an acrylic?

LCD (aka Liquid Crystal Display aka ‘elsie-dee’ aka Nika aka Nick) and Matt Hennem have been obsessing for a decade now about the fine details of moving a ball from point ‘A’ to point ‘B.’

Masterful juggling from one of the best. I held my breath through most of this, and am without words to describe how deeply this inspires. It is a masterpiece of expressive juggling, with a constant play between the various emotional states and a huge depth and range of techniques. I’m feeling it; Stefan is awesome.

Bravo!!!! and a standing ovation for bringing this to youtube in 1080p.
