10 Years of Not Juggling - Full Resolution

btiemann

I took a 10-year break from juggling, but am getting back into it. Here is my first collage. Music is Comets Over Flatland (15) by R. Winchester. It is written in 15-tone equal temperament, not the otherwise universal 12-tone equal temperament of western music. Filmed in late 2009. 0:04: 4: 61616 0:19: 5: ([4,4x],2)* 0:29: 7: ([6,6x],2)* 0:37: 4: 7161616 0:51: 5: 75751, 77771707771716661*, then 95551 a few times. * Trick was "spontaneous." 1:21: 5: 66661 1:31: 8: (8,8), 97, 8, (8x,8x) flashes 1:56: 5: 91 2:07: 6: 99919191 2:14: 8: 999999990 and 99999991 flashes 2:23: 9: 9 (9 catches then 11 catches) 2:40: 10: a (11 catches, Garfield Finish) 2:48: 5: 88171717 3:00: 6: 8844 3:07: 6: 868671 3:15: 6: b66661 3:23: 4: 80 (Actually, 6: 8[22]) 3:36: 6: 889191 (big brother of 6671) 3:42: 6: 78888171 3:51: 6: 8888181 4:00: 7: 88888817 4:05: 8: 97 4:11: 7: 8888881 4:20: 8: (8,8) (18 catches) 4:27: 7: 888891 - this is a really neat trick 4:32: 8: 8 (21 catches) 4:40: 10: a (17 throws, 10 drops)

Advice on Not Juggling - Video Response

Hybrid Tricks for Numbers Juggling: Boppo's Whiteboard

btiemann

This is a family of tricks that are part cascade or fountain, and part shower or pseudoshower, which are good tricks for learning numbers juggling. They are stepping stones between the easier tricks you can do, and target numbers trick you wish to do. Pseudoshower?! Twin to the shower, it has even high throws and odd period, instead of odd high throws and even period. The four families of hybrids are, the cascade-shower, the cascade-pseudoshower, the fountain-shower, and the fountain-pseudoshower. The inf. pseudoshower 3: 1818181 could have been added to the lower right section, on top. I like all of these tricks, but haven't seen them described this way before. I also performed 8888181 and 8888881 in Ten Years of Not Juggling, shown on the board. In that film I also performed 6: 99919191, and 5: 88171717, 6: 88881717, 7: 88888817, and also 6: 889191, and 7: 888891, which differ in having shower throws higher than the fountain throws.

Best Method: Throw Sequence (Brute Force) Transitions

btiemann

If you want to only watch one, watch this one. /nHere's a method to generate siteswap transitions based on where all the balls actually land; making them all work out amounts to creating a sequence. This is my favorite method, and it produces rather easily, all the possible transitions within the context of the throws that you've decided to mess with, either out of necessity (when throws collide) or by choice (when they don't). /nIf you're trying to come up with a way to write an algorithm for producing transitions, I would suggest that this way is the best way. It's deterministic, for one, and it's comprehensive, for another. /nThis is part 1... stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion!!

Relative Heights of Siteswap Throws: Boppo's Whiteboard

btiemann

Here's a physics lesson that shows you how to calculate the relative heights of siteswap throws. How much higher is a 7 than a 6? or a 9 than a 5?

Boppo's Whiteboard:

btiemann

Here's the "Level Of Excitation" Method. To use it, you only have to know the get-in and get-out sequences for the excited-state siteswap tricks you wish to transition between. Knowing those, you can write transitions both ways.

Siteswap Pinch-Ups - Boppo's Whiteboard

btiemann

Here's something I discovered while composing my thoughts for an upcoming siteswap-based tutorial for numbers juggling (still in progress) I call them "siteswap pinch-ups." I don't think they have been described before.

btiemann

Here's the way computers use the state-space to generate transition sequences ... and why that way doesn't work for people! Plus, there's a human-based way if you know of or can come up with a trick that has states in common with the two tricks you wish to transition between. /nPlease note that even if tricks have different levels of excitation, but nevertheless share states with one another, you can just go from the middle of one trick to the middle of the other (or wherever the tricks share the common state), without any "extra" throws.

The Perils of Ambiguity: Boppo Qualifies 11 with 24c!!

btiemann

On the heels of Alex Barron's upcoming filmed 11-ball qualify, does Boppo get lucky once again on camera with an unbelievable 24 catches with 11 - and 15 catches with 13? /nOr, is he just trying to make a point about the shortfalls of ambiguous notations?

Synch Transitions from Throw Sequence Method 1

btiemann

The first of two videos using the throw sequence method to deal with a synchronous transition, getting from (6x,4)* to (8x,2)*. Plus, a word from my sponsor.

Best Way

btiemann

The stunning conclusion to the Throw Sequence method, for asynch tricks. In this case I derive some transitions from 714 back into 741. This one also shows how to do a 0, and why I like numbers and not letters to denote siteswap throws.

Awesome concrete wall, that a six-ball juggler blocks part of

btiemann

Here's a film of a really nice concrete wall, except that some juggler is blocking the view of part of this wall. He seems to be doing the wimpy pattern and then the inside halfshower, as if to show that the patterns are different. But check out that wall! (See the killer thumbnail!)

5: Enter exit and reverse 5 shower - siteswaps

btiemann

This is my favorite way to enter, reverse and exit a five ball shower. From cascade 5, 678 is the entrance, 91 (repeated) is the shower, and 817161 is the exit. To reverse, throw 8181818 and then you can throw 91s from the other side.

Mythical Patterns: 4 cascade, 5 fountain, and bonus: 5 wimpy

btiemann

Here I attempt the impossible: to juggle four balls in the cascade pattern, and 5 in the fountain. As a bonus, I also show the 5-ball wimpy pattern. So far as I know, I am the first person ever to do this trick, and with any luck will also be the last.

6: 7899918171: The 6-ball-shower-chicken-out siteswap

btiemann

I find this trick funny, because it is almost like the 6 ball shower entry and exit, 789a...b1...a1918171 but it chickens out at the 9s and flees back to the fountain.

Here's the 5-ball siteswap 10 5 5 5 5 0 (a55550) done two different ways. First the 10 is a high throw, and the 0 is demonstrated with an open palm, and then the 10 is tossed to a kickup and back into the pattern.
