Hey Top Spinners.... "New" guy here...
« on: September 06, 2015, 04:05:35 PM »

Hello all!

I am Marcus Perry AKA Marc Daniels and I have been an avid/voracious/manic TopSpinner since around 2005.  I have been a professional performer since the early 90's and really enjoy incorporating spin tops in my juggling act.  I have known several members of this internet community for quite a while and am just now finally getting on the boards!  At the urging of my friends Mark Hayward and Jim Neff I attended Miamisburg this year and had a GREAT time. 

Glad to be here!

El Diabolo!!!  Welcome.  It is good to have you with us, Marcus.  Sorry we did not get an opportunity to talk very much at the Burg fest.  Glad to hear you had a great time.  Hope to spend some more time with you in the future.....maybe in Cleveland?

Looking forward to having you post on the forum.

Sounds familiar . . .  ::)

Now the forum has a John Markus and a Marcus Perry. If you combined them, the Mark/cus cancel each other and you get John Perry, the author of a famous lecture on spinning tops. If you can get the book based on this classical lecture (there have been many reprints) I highly recommend it.
