Hi everyone. I'm very much a newbie. I've been learning to juggle for about three weeks and while I still drop the beanbags a lot, I'm starting to get the hang of the basic three ball cascade. I get a lot of my practice in while waiting for busses on the way home from work, and now that DST is over it's usually totally dark. I've been looking for some light-up balls, but since I still drop them so much I need something that won't roll away and into traffic. Right now I' m using homemade beanbags about the size of hacky-sacks and I'd love something a similar size and feel. Any suggestions?

This is sort of a long shot, but I have two questions about my new set of PX3 Fatheads. First, does anyone know of a US vendor that carries colored replacement knobs for PX3s? I can get colored tops from Jugglingstore.com but they only offer the knobs in black. I know Play makes colored knobs but I've only been able to find them on European sites and since the Fatheads only come undecorated I wanted to add a bit of color when I inevitably end up replacing the knobs.
Second question, has anyone replaced the tops on a set of PX3s? Does the little PX3 insert (picture) just pop out to reveal the screw? I don't want to get it out and then not be able to put it back. Just curious, thanks for any help you can offer.
Never mind, thanks to the power of critical reading I've discovered it's just a sticker and the replacement tops come with a new one.

Help a juggling video AND a food bank win
I'm a finalist in a contest here: http://irisevideo.com/index.php?/official-voting.html
The grand prize is $15,000 and there's a runner-up prize of $2500, and with that much cash, I thought it'd be a good deed to try and spread some of it around.
So, if I win the grand prize, I'm going to be donating $5000 to the Greater Boston Food Bank (http://www.gbfb.org
), a hardworking charity where I live that feeds a LOT of people. If I win the runner-up prize, I'll donate $1000.
If you'd like to help, just go to the site above and vote for me, I'm video #5, iRise Viral Project. Vote early and vote often, you can vote every day right up until June 20th!
And pass the word! Facebook, Myspace, your own personal journal, whatever you can do to get the word out would be great. Even if you just want to make fun of my technique. :-)

Can anyone recommend an "affordable" set of juggling clubs good for use outside and for a beginner club juggler who is likely to abuse the hell out of them?

Vote for Gemini Hoops at www.clipstar.com!
I am writing to ask you to please help me to manifest my dream of creating a family healing arts center with massage, craniosacral therapy, chiropractic, midwifery, and workshops for the whole family, including infants and pregnancy.
Please vote for my hoopdancing video "Gemini Hoops" at Clipstar.com and help me to win $10,000! I am currently in 2nd place and need your help to win this contest so as to fund my dream healing arts center for pregnancy, babies, children, and adults. http://www.clipstar.com/videopage.jsf?video=9_7002_159
I am a healing arts practitioner with 10 years experience as a massage therapist, doula, craniosacral therapist, birth educator, hoopdancer, teacher, writer, and mama...please support this project by voting for my video and sharing this with your friends! I have a space lined up, and practitioners waiting to share the office.
I am working diligently to manifest this contest as well as a microbusiness grant that will fruit next year to help the center grow. However, the space may be opening sooner than previously expected and I'm hoping to win this contest to transition this summer into the healing arts center!

Recharging old bean bags
I've got a dozen Todd Smith Beanbags (http://www.toddsmith.com/prods/beanbags.shtml
) that I've had since '99. I hardly juggled them, but they were put through the ringer as I've loaned them out over the years in classes and to friends. They are now in terrible shape. The outer skin has peeled off, and they are very, very SQUISHY. Still, it seemed a shame to just toss them.
So, while at Petsmart picking up food for the cat, I stumbled into the "dog toy" section and found some nice, light balls for 99 cents each. They were 3 inch balls. I bought one to test. Brought it home and cut it open a little less than half way, and squeezed a beanbag inside. A little superglue and wait for it to set and you have a stage ball. (Well, I guess it's more like an MMX Ball (http://www.inthespinjuggling.com/t_store/balls.htm
Issues: The balls are *soft*, so the hardest part was actually lining up the seam to reglue the ball together. I had to reset and reglue the ball twice before I got it nicely line up. One of the balls was a little flat on one side, but that hasn't really thrown off the balance to my notice.
Speaking of balance, if you shake the ball, you can feel the beanbag move around inside, but there's almost none of that when juggling.
The balls end up being heavier than a standard stage ball. My arms certainly feel it after five ball runs.
The issues are minor, in my opinion. Better to give these loyal bags new life :)

Numbers are a bit further in the future for me, but I've been thinking ahead to that wonderful day, and I was wondering about clubs.
Right now I've got some one-piece Renegades, which are quite light and handy, and some Dube composite clubs for passing. Not a fan of the Dubes for solo; I can certainly juggle them and they've got great handling, but they're also rather heavy. Ideally I'd want something light, undecorated and reasonably cheap (if I'm going to buy five then I should probably just buy one more and have six.)

I've just joined this community. I am from Moscow. I can juggle everything, but mostly fire torches.

Cross posted from HoP:
I have a serious request, no matter how stupid it sounds. I'm looking for a zorb. Yes, a zorb. A giant, human, hamster ball. Actually, the illustrious Johnny Bass is searching for one. So, while I've seen a lot of talk about how they won't sell one, any help or info that may point to purchasing one stateside would be great.
Thanks in advance! Current Mood: geeky

I'm a total beginner. I've only played around with hackysacks and... nine volt batteries for lack of anything else to juggle with. I am thinking about buying Dube's hollow vinyl stage balls
, but I'm kind of confused about the difference between a flourescent and non-flourescent color. Also, does anyone have these in glow-in-the-dark? Are they worth it, or kind of cheesy?
Any help is appreciated. Happy juggling. :) Current Mood: curious
