Hey hey hey.
So, it's been a while. A long while. 20 years, more or less, that I've been out of the juggling circuit. 20 years older, less hirsute, and with a bit more baggage around the midriff. Saw Haggis on the Jonathan Pie skit, was gutted to hear that Arabella had died, I had no idea. Then one of Luke Wilson's videos popped up on my youtube feed (his first performance at the Circus Space Cabaret, here - https://youtu.be/QS4peWR_v20), and then I found out that he'd passed on as well. Tragic.
Anyroadup, I've pulled a few of my old props out of storage. I can still do 5 balls relatively solidly,and most of the old 3 ball stuff is still bang on, thanks, muscle memory. And I just had a pop with the parasols. First time in literally 20 years that I've picked them up, my old RJ balls are dead, so had to use a cheap kid's football, which is way too light, 10 minutes of playing and I can do the curls again. Got some ideas for all that, but they won't involve black light and crappy techno this time :)
A big hello to any of the old Circus Space crew who are still about, I see St3void's still around and active, if any of you are liable to be in the French Alps at any time you'd be most welcome to come and crash.
If anyone wants a laff, here is literally the first time I picked up a parasol and spun stuff on it in 20 years. Sound's atrocious, framing's not much better.
Blimey, hello. Nice to see you spinning the brolly again. Although it's not the same without someone saying "That's my Daddy! And he's wearing make-up!" in the background. #YouHadToBeThere.
