Posted:Sorry to resurrect a very old thread,

But Ive seen Matt Hennem doing a very little bit of mindblowingly cool contact juggling, but I was distracted and drunk at the time.

I looked at the above site and couldnt see his vid without a password. Do you know anywhere else I could see a vid of Matt Hennem, or Franc from Paris (I think his stage name might be Mica Quartz or something), or Mr. Om, or some other greats?

Posted:cool, best place for vids is definatly contactjuggling.org, but you probably know that by now. that and the book by james ernst is wicked, even if that is just coz the pictures all look so nice :-)
