2 years ago all my friends in Europe started asking me ” have you met this young kid Joseph? He is amazing.”

I later met him at the Swiss juggling convention was deeply impressed by his passion for contact juggling. I immediately subscribed to his youtube channel, Juggling for Cake and he has released some great contact and multiball and 8ring stuff. Seriously just click those links.

They are all full of stuff you’ve never thought of before but it is brilliant. I should have been posting all of them on the Ministry all year, but these recent 3ball videos are just too good so here ya go, this is Joseph and he is seriously one of the best new contemporary jugglers that exist.

Pilolip – Isolation hoop routine v1.1

I am always surprised when other hoopers dont know about Pilolip. His latest video of his isohoop routine is so flowy and isolated and perfect. It currently has less than 200 views, and i think we can fix that :)

Filmed at the same time as his ball routine, which is equally amazing.

Luke Wilson Memorial Donations

Monday, October 29th, 2012


At the start of October we were saddened to hear of the passing of inspirational Club juggler – Luke Wilson .

Sam Veale has set up a Just Giving page
:

Luke lost his battle with oesophageal cancer on October 3rd 2012. He was just a few weeks short of his 36th birthday. His family have nominated Macmillan Cancer Support in honour of the help they provided in the final months of Luke’s life

If you’ve ever Juggled or manipulated anything, please go make a donation, even if if you can only afford just £1 pound. Or perhaps you’ve ever thought that you’d like to make a small donate to MoM as a website, then heres your chance, we don’t need it, give it to Lukes fund.

If you need more information, here is a post by Stevoid on jugglehub, including a link to an obituary in The Stage.
With additional info in the post by Jay Linn.

See also,Luke’s Blog on Circus Geeks, with a wonderful memorial post by Arron Sparks which includes this great tutorial by Luke on how to learn 3 club kick ups:

Typically Luke, well considered, precise, incredibly technical, inspirational and showing the high standards that Luke set in everything he did.
Luke you are very sadly missed.

Gustaf Rosell ”Sorry won’t cut it”

Gustaf Rosell with ball body throws, bounce, and balance combinations. This zen master is throwing 7 up pirouettes from a cold start directly to a collect with the last ball landing in an elbow balance. His technique is not only high in a transitional sense of catching and throwing with precision but he has figured out how to make incredibly accurate bounce with balls off of his body. Sending them off different sides of the elbows, behind the neck, and performing elbow bounces synch with drops from the same side hand to backwards leg catches. He has really developed his own style of working where it looks like no one else!

Super project by our friend Teku. 30 minutes of bodyrolling/fingerstalls with RdL Props (Rings + Clubs)/Babal/Diablo.

“I’ve made plenty of videos up until now but I felt like creating something more substantial for a change. The idea came several months ago during a very low point at my job, so I used all that pent up energy and frustration and decided to create some new ideas and see if I could take contact juggling somewhere that maybe hasn’t been explored before. Theres plenty more to be done but this is a first step towards where I would like to be with my juggling in the future.” (Teku)

We think this is a big inspirational gift for the contact juggling community. BIG UP for you Darren, really!

Thanks for watching
