Posted:Well, after a stressful/fun/eventful/tiring/confusing/wonderful weekend at the Beautiful Days festival, I came away with one question.
In particular, this is aimed at Glass, but others I'm sure will be able to contribute.

One of the stalls was the Mushy Pea Juggling stall, manned by a very nice guy called Steve.
The second sentance he said to me was (and I quote) "I invented contact staff..." which is quite a claim. He said Glass (amidst others) had attended his workshops and that all things contact staffy basically came from him. Two questions:
1) Is this true?
2) Where does he hang out/spin?

Although not a great staff spinner myself, I have to admit that he was freakin' awesome! I was very sceptical after such a bold claim but - damn it - he was VERY good.
Also his CJ was very good, well, awesome (I asked if he was the SilverMan but he isn't...) and his club spinning was like nothing I'd ever seen before - wicked! I really must get myself a 4" ball soon.

the father of modern <insert invention here>

instead biggrin

pretty much all the Londony contact stuff i know comes via Knoxious and Ogre Tim - who in turn got most of their stuff (i think) from a baton twirler who used to go to the Viaduct.

But that's all based on vague memorys of hearing stuff what other people had heard maybe rolleyes

Ah. I thought you could mean the juggler Steve Brown. Mind you, I haven't seen him recently so I'm not sure of his follicular status ubblol You could have a look at the University of Southampton's Juggling Club gallery and see



not that it's necessary any more since the quote was from a fair
while ago and since you've found mushy steve, but i'm the steve
brown of whom you referred to, and i'm almost certain that i haven't
invented contact staff. however, i'm not ruling out doing so in the
future. i am follically well, but have no idea who you are spanner.
have we met?
