Pretty amazing, but from a purely entertainment point of view I think I still like the first guy. I really like the optical illusion type tricks like the strechy triangle pattern thing. Im going to have to check out the rest of these vids when I got some time. Youll have to make a video of yourself next and show off your skillz.

Tim Kelly (first guy) is more of a performer than most jugglers. The guys (like Thomas Dietz,Jason Garfield and Vova Galchenko) juggling 7 clubs, 9 rings and 9 balls perform harder stuff than Tim but he is very creative and does tricks that are easily distinguished from other tricks. There are jugglers that jugglers enjoy watching and then there are jugglers the non-juggling public enjoy. TK has a routine that's a lot of fun and combines tricks to make them look good. I think his best talent is his side juggling variations. At one point he does side juggling with a shower pattern and penquin catches. That's taking a hard trick and then adding more elements of difficulty all while making it look unique. His club video is pretty cool too.

Someday I'll make a juggling video but my skills pale in comparison to these fulltime performers.

Just found this on Tim Kelly
http://www.comedyindustries.com/bios/timk.html

It turns out he was a world class footbag competitor and then switched to juggling since he couldn't make a livivg kicking the bag. It says he prectices 9-10 hours a day. Wow! no wonder he's good.

now footbag, there is something I used to be really good at. When I was in high school my friends and I would literally spend all day playing sack. Recently some friends and I were together and one had found an old bag, we tried to play a few rounds, and I have to say I did better than I though I would after almost 10 years off, but.... well... lets just say you know your getting old when a buddy falls over and almost breaks a hip :lol:

Kinda funny that there are so many disc golfers who know how to juggle. I guess both pursuits are related in that they involve manual dexterity and watching objects do cool stuff while in the air.

Produce is my favorite thing to juggle with.

That's one multi talented dude.

Skateboarding, juggling, ball spinning and diablo. In disc golf terms he's 1000 rated in four different disciplines.

The move I found most impressive was when Tim Kelly was keeping all three balls "levitating". His hands were moving as if jamming on a piano. I don't know how technical that move is but it impressed this non-juggler.

It's a simple pattern but it requires very good hand speed. I practiced it for awhile and had it going once but I couldn't sustain it for more than 4-5 catches.

I wish there were more jugglers like TK. Most jugglers get to a certain mastery of tricks and then move on to more props (5,7,9) but Tim sticks primarily to juggling 3 but the tricks he performs look smoother and better. Whether it's a shuffle, machine,windmill, a mess or a barrage he's perfected them like no one else I've seen.
