Take a look at this - it will make you smile. I have never seen anyone juggle like this...
Warning - you will need a broadband connection!
PS: I know it's not strictly magic - but this seemed the most appropriate place. Hope it's okay.

Very, very cool. Thanks for the link.

Very very nice! Excellent choice of music too!
And it also shows that you really don't need loads of super-duper expensive props to entertain well.

There is a note saying ** video will be available Feb 28

Saw this, and I have to say I'm not really sure what the appeal is -Bliss is an average juggler at best; slightly below average depending on who you hang out with.

To each his own, Medb - I think it was the way he was riffing the music so well that made me smile. Also, the 'chaotic' sections where he looked like he was loosing it but actually, wasn't... (Sorry, I don't know if there's a technical term that jugglers have for this bit?)
I'm sure I have seen jugglers who are possibly technically better, here in the Edinburgh Festival - but, this is just a cool combination of music and skill...

Wow! Thanks Mercutio - I just love this kind of stuff! He is more what I would think of as a 'performance artist' than a juggler as he uses his body in an acrobatic way. Reminds me a lot of Cirque du Soliel, who I have seen many times - I see he has worked with them.
He's also been to Edinburgh! Yikes - I certainly won't miss him if he comes back.
I am going down to London this weekend to see Blue Man Group. We saw them in Vegas and they were fantastic! I'm pretty sure the prissy health and safety laws here in the UK won't let them do the stuff they do in the Vegas show (such as hang a guy upside-down from a crane, paint him and swing him against a board to make 'living art'!!! LOL!) Yeah, I know he must have been a plant (surely?) So looking forward to it...
