Onni Toivonen threw out great footage of his live act today. It is a highly recommended watch. His dedication to the art of juggling is deep and full. He has a fluid manipulation style paired with highly skilled toss juggling of up to 7 clubs.
And yet, his Clubbed to Death video featured above is a little shorter and grittier. It features his clean manipulation style with funky edits and it is just so gosh darn cool!
Throw Joy is 53 minutes of sledgehammer hitting ice-cream cake. The result of 561 days spent making 6 clubs tricks, strapping cameras to trees, and filling 8 juggling notebooks with questionable ideas. The video not only includes the most hardcore juggling Wes has ever done with balls, clubs, and rings but keyboards, chairs, tripods, paintings, and wine bottles are also recklessly thrown skyward. After 24 years on earth and 19 years of juggling, Wes finally has the freedom to make a hula hoop out of clubs! Bon appetite!
Throw Joy contents:
-Catching chair with head

-You’ve never seen 7 like this
-New 6 club tricks
-The death of ring juggling
-5 clubs #€%&
-Please clean the room
– Giant Tricks (incudes 5 bouquet backcrosses)
I sat down to watch Tony Pezzo’s new downloadable video “The Third” the other night. I’m interested in how Tony will be able to forge his identity as the next in the “American-in-Sweden” royal line after Jay and Wes. This is a 42 minute compilation of short choreographies with balls, clubs and rings, and Tony Pezzo proves that he is, indeed, the Third. I want to know what they feed circus students in Stockholm because the level of juggling ability that comes out of this place is astonishing.
The Third is a juggling film by Tony Pezzo. It features tricks, and sequences inspired by living in Sweden, and being around people such as: Wes Peden, Patrik Elmnert, Emil Dahl, Jay Gilligan, and Ivar Heckscher.
THE VIDEO CONTAINS: † OVER 150 NEW TRICKS † 250 PENGUIN CATCHES† TONYS FIRST GOOD MIXED PROP ROUTINE † SOME OF WES’BEST 3 CLUB TRICKS, WITH RINGS! † NEW 3 RING ROUTINE† PLINGELING † HIS FAVORITE TRICK: THE FIVE RING FACEROLL TAKE OFF PUT BACK, WITH THE MULTIPLEX PANCAKE.
Tony is making juggling for us, we the people of the internet who love juggling. He takes the standards of technical numbers which we all know and adds new elements (the multiplexes… oh the mixed prop multiplexes!!!) to show us a kind of ‘technical-with-a-new-twist” style which he has polished up nicely
Whatever comes next from Tony is gonna be gold, and we should all be supporting the future by stopping what you are doing, taking $15 and throwing it at him right now.
Old release, but suddenly showed up on youtube after being hard to find for many years. There is something so special about the way Elias moves and his tricks are still super fresh. I hear Visionbot is re-releasing a lot of old stuff on vimeo (including the VSNBT MNPLTN SRS) so i’m gonna repost it all when it comes up again.
