I am happy for you......and a little bit jealous.  I know the thrill of learning a new trick.  It feels great.  The endorphins are kicking in.  There is a general feeling of euporia.  I am happy you are experiencing all of that.  I am just a little bit jealous because I did not learn a new trick today and I want the same experience you are having.

Good work, Jack (even if I am a bit jealous).

Round tricks were always harder for me to learn also.

The Toque returns!  (I miss the TV fire though)
I can do only 5, then things get goofy.  Congratulations on keeping them going.

indeed!!! jack + the toque = rick astley @-@
i too miss the fire but that setup was very narrow and there was only 3 1/2 feet between the tv and the table for e to stand between so the new filming location is a little more spacious.........one day the fire will return...have no fear  ;D
thanks

Oh wow!! I'm impressed!! I wanna learn that too!!
And thanks for the quote :)
I'm right now working too many hours to improve properly, but I finally learned the gyroscopic flop, and mastered the merry-go-round around the head and crazy 8s switching hands.

PD: I am heading tomorrow to buy an 'Energia elec-trick' in the local toys r us. The energia spintop that comes with a C size (standard yoyo size) bearing. I have one, replaced the bearing for a ceramic one, turned into one of my favorite throws. If any of you wants one, let me know and I will make sure to ship it correctly
