Something about contact juggling always served to creep me out, like stripping away the few enjoyable aspects of a renaissance fair and leaving only sweaty men and discomfort.
Also, absurdly appropriate music.
I've never felt so unnecessarily uncomfortable after watching a video.
Seriously, burn the witch.
I don't mean to sound condescending, but I am, so it should come off that way. I studied at a workshop with a professional contact juggler and what this guy is doing takes about 5 minutes to learn how to do. It took me a whole of 15 minutes to get the hang of tricks like the ones in the videos and I'm by no means especially gifted. What I mean to say is, you could quite easily do what he dos and his act is garbage. You start with an orange on the back of your hand (palm) and learn to roll it over your fingers to your palm. Practice that for about 6 hours and then use the same momentum up to your inner elbow, then shoulder, etc. This guy is a chump and that's coming from me, and I suck at contact juggling far worse than you ever would.
My comment was ment to be a reply to you
I had issues with the butterfly, then again, I'm not that coordinated.
touche, good sir! not only shall i post the video, but it will be one of myself directing the news while on pcp and debating keith olberman from stephen colbert's chair while contact juggling three kittens with cerebral hyperplasia! just you wait and see! i'll show you, i'll show you ALL!
My dear Mr. Graves, if you could make that happen I'd be your best friend forever!
I really liked this. If this guy is a chump and there are others a million times better then this guy then I am in for a long night of searching youtube for people with balls.
What I mean to say is, not me, but YOU could easily do this. Real contact juggling generally encapsulates techniques such as rolling from the back of the hand along the arm across the back of the neck and down the other arm to the other hand, etc. I know it sounds odd but it is merely a matter of practice. The techniques here are really really basic. Watch the video again, it is just fluff. I'm not in any way saying I'm great, I'm saying that what is here is flash compared to the people who really are good, and you could do what he is doing with about 30 minutes of practice and training. When you see a guy rolling three crystals simultaneously for five minutes along his arms, neck, and down his stomach and from one palm to another with complete fluid motion, then you are watching someone who knows what they are doing. I'm really only saying that you, the viewer could easily do what is in this video with almost no training. It just looks fluffy.
Jareth is suffering from some male pattern hair loss. Glad to see he's got some normal trousers on, too.
I love watching old men play with their balls.
+4 for the creepy porno music

I thought 'contact juggling' was about people juggling while running into each other, like contact football but while tossing balls and pins in the air.
Either way, this is creepy, but interesting.
Chiming in an even more dorky fact - the distorted/warbly CB radio sound in this song is from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
His Balls are Acrylic
