Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Yet another thread, started By Ben-Ja-Men, not to include a video! ubblol



But, yeah. It's a great idea. A load of people from CJ.org are doing the same thing. I should be making a video with Colin J, I can submit it here as well? It'll be more CJ that spinning, but it'll still be cool! biggrin

It's all about having fun. Be creative, see what Mischief you can get up to, see how you can make people laugh... You don't have to be able to spin well... But it would be nice to incorporate it...
Hang on... I'll find out what was said on CJ.org...

Its that time of year again!

Here's the plan... December 25... christmas morning, what does every contact juggler dream of?

That's right! A batch of new videos from your friends at contactjuggling.org!

Remy and I are working on a special 'video christmas card' for .org, and plan to release it to the community on christmas morning, just in time to be opened with all your other gifts.

But why should the fun stop there? Why should we be the only self-sacrificing 'santa-claus' figures? We want our presents too!

Imagine stumbling to the computer, bleary eyed, on christmas morning, to find a half-hour's worth of new video lovin', from the .org community...THAT would be a true christmas miracle....not to mention the best pile of gifts ever to come down your chimney...er...DSL line.

So how about a special category on the forum... a 'christmas tree' section where we can all contribute and exchange links to our new 'present'-ations.
sorry about that.
That wasn't cool.
(and for the record, that was RYAN's pun, not remy's.)

We're not out to show off big tricks here. You don't have to be a great juggler to make a great short video. Get into the holiday spirit, tell us about your big chistmas wishes, play around with those shiny chistmas ornaments. Decorate the house in true contact juggler fashion. Lock away your acrylics for a day and pack together some snowballs. Confuse the local shoppers at the mall and upstage Santa. Take a ball with you to the ice-rink. Spread the .org cheer.

This isn't for a low-res webcam video of your latest butterfly variations. No-one likes getting socks for christmas

Make it special...
Show everyone your creative side.

Who wants in? Lets start a 'sign-up' thread. If you have the capabilities to record and edit digitally, and want play a part in making this holiday special, put your name down and give us something to look forward to. Your participation may inspire others to join in.

3 weeks to go....
Happy Holidays!
Ryan and Remy.

Excellent. We have a person to hold the camera, and look after our stuff to make sure it doesn't get nicked...

Plus you'll be able to help me bring out more sillyness...
