I need a better juggling icon, but no clowns! [May. 10th, 2010|06:54 pm]

[Current Mood |pleasedpleased]

As of today, I feel confident in saying that I can, in fact, juggle.

I can't keep it up for long, and I can do only one pattern. But I can keep the balls in the air for at least three cycles, and I call that success.

Thanks, sweetie. My dream icon is Adam Savage juggling, but this one is not bad!

I made this really quick. Or re-sized it really, I didn't make it make it. ;)



I think it's amazing, congrats on your accomplishment!

Hit it! I have credited the maker on my userpics page but I don't remember who it is offhand.

Thank you thank you! I only saw that movie this year and adored it, even if I'm not a 13 year old girl.

Oh, wow. It must be really something seeing it for the first time as an adult! Cool.

I love that movie so much.

Watch the making of Labyrinth... Bowie isn't doing the juggling... a really really good contact juggler is doing it behind him... and if you're interested, I know of a contact juggler in the Detroit area... he performs at the Michigan Renaissance Festival, but teaches classes from time to time, too :)

(and congrats on your new juggling prowess, too :) )

Have, in fact, watched it and was impressed with the cleverness with which they accomplished it.

Congratulations! I've tried, but I've never stuck with practicing long enough to make the break-through.

Before you know it you'll be juggling fire and chainsaws.

So far I'm sticking with balls, but I may work on new patterns.

From one juggler to another, Hurrah!

Now, wait for the people who will tell you, "I could never do that!" :)

Keep up the good work! Years ago I was able to do a basic three-ball pattern, but I never spent enough time on it to get beyond that point and have let even that lapse.
