I love how a contact juggler can silence a room of jugglers...

Posted:Matt is so cool... biggrin

I totally love his modesty. wink

I did notice a couple of points on the video, though...

1) His left arm isn't used to it's full potential.
2) That head catch. He fell victim to the worst thing in the world a thing that I constantly fall foul of too... A move you have solid most of the time, just didn't want to play on stage. frown It looked to me like it hurt quite bad...

But saying that, his isolation is SICK. I wish I could have that much confidence in my own.

Posted:Do you have problems using diffrent codecs and media players? Those times are over with VLC! What is VLC you might ask. VLC is a freeware media player with most (all) codecs built into the player itself.

Ok nuff with the sales pitch. Bottom line is that VLC is great and doesn't contain any type of ads or spyware.

Posted:amazing vid.

as for playback of it, media player classic is lovely, and it's not free unfortunately, but the CoreAVC mp4 / h264 codec absolutely blows away quicktime, vlc or any other PC support for such things.

I did want to make that convention, purely cos I'd seen Matts contact work on online vids- unfortunately there wasn't a lift available.

So thanks for posting the vid link- it's an outstanding clip and has very much inspired me to get out the contact ball again.
