Hi JugglingEdge,

thanks a lot for the invite.
I am a juggler from Bonn, Germany and am working on getting my 5 clubs clean and doing some manipulation.

My reason for getting here is the search for a juggling which I saw performing a few years ago. Unfortunately I don't know his name.
He juggled balls and used a rope to catch and throw those by throwing loops into the rope. If any of you have any idea who he might be, help is very much appreciated! :)

Thanks and best regards,

Welcome Flo!

Bonn is a nice place, I've visited there a few times and once even attended a university juggling club!
I know of the performance you talk about. It's been a very long time since I've seen anything of it, and I have no clue who he is... Good luck finding that out!

I saw video of the act I believe you are referring to. I found a similar ball and rope act but I don't think it is the same performer:

The act I saw was being performed in Europe in 2012 or 2013 and the performer juggled a ball and would manipulate the ball(s) using the rope.

Top quality clowning still exists! Just not necessarily in the circus.

I enjoyed this compilation of Chicago Bulls mascot Benny the Bull:

An impressive array of skills on display, particularly the acrobatics in a suit which must have limited visibility.

Hi my name is Parris. I have recently got back into juggling after taking a break for a few years. I primarily juggle balls and will be performing at the Congress of jugglers in Maryland in early may

Hi Parris, welcome to The Edge, and welcome back to juggling. Good luck with your performance!

Welcome back!

I never realized how strangely shaped Maryland was until I looked it up just now. A bit outside of my fest radius, but I hope your performance goes well!

The Haavard Documentary - available now on eJuggle at

Not just great skill footage and interviews (with Haavard and his friends, family, and fans), but also fascinating analysis on what makes Haavard so wonderful.

...videos on JTV. A nice number to hit. Here's the first 5th-figure vid:

Congratulations! To think, there used to be so few juggling videos out there...

The Void - - Parent

I remember when all the online juggling videos were gifs!

Scott Seltzer - - Parent

Do you remember when I created a database of every single online juggling video on the entire Internet (including gifs)?

The Void - - Parent

Heh, that rings a bell. Was it also you that did one of your VHS collection?

Scott Seltzer - - Parent

I may have been into that sort of thing, yes.

Excellent. This has (tangentially) reminded me of some of my early audio cassettes - as well as writing down the song title and artist, I'd also note the "tape counter" number at the start of each song. That was a mechanical dial that ticked up as you played through a tape, to show you how far through the tape you were. I don't think the numbers corresponded to seconds, and I remember when I got a different cassette player, and the tape counter numbers didn't tally - the new brand's counter went at a different speed!

I remember the first time I saw an internet video. The year was 1992, and Apple had just launched QuickTime, which allowed computers to play video, something unheard of at the time.

I downloaded it off Usenet (probably as a multi-part binary encoded as text). We didn't have the web back then.

QuickTime only ran on Macs, so I wrote it onto disk on my Sun workstation at work, and took it home to try on my Mac Classic II.

It was only in black and white (at least on my computer) with dithered grey-scale. It was maybe a hundred or two pixels across, and lasted 10 or 15 seconds max.

Still a stunning glimpse of the future.

I've just tried to find it online, but there seems to be very little recorded of that era. I do remember a rocket launching, and a voice-over with an attempt at an awe-inspiring speech. I vaguely remember a QuickTime video being circulated by one of the candidates in the US Presidential election, so it might have been that. Or I many be conflating two memories, and the rocket may have just been an Apple demo.

I might still have the video on a Mac disk. Quite hard to convert to modern formats, but not impossible! Maybe I'll find it one day and put it online.

Nothing to do with juggling, but hey, nostalgia is great ;-)

Paging Tiff, paging Tiff ...

This should work with 5b overheads and a modified Salerno ring, right?

Little Paul - - Parent

I’m not sure it would, because the twisting movement required to get the ball up to the next platform would tend to throw the ball out of the Salerno ring at the top?

Orinoco - - Parent

Yeah, but Tiff will just time the twists for when the ball in the Salerno ring is at 12 or 6 o'clock. No big deal.

The Void - - Parent

But meanwhile, Jamie's already engineering a bearing-mounted isolating head for the ring...

With gyro stabilization?
