As I said in part 1, I’ve now been writing for eJuggle for almost three years. In that time, I’ve managed to research and write 64 articles, including historical pieces, interviews, obituaries, reviews, and anecdotal accounts. In the weeks and months that follow each article I write for eJuggle, I often learn more information about the article’s subject. In January of last year, I wrote an update of past articles I’d written and I now feel it’s time to do this again. In addition, many of my readers miss some of my articles. Therefore, this article is my way of pointing readers back to articles they may have missed and adding new information to those articles for past and new readers alike. I would encourage readers to click on the titles of the articles in order to read them and then come back and read the additional information provided here. I should point out that in some cases, I’ve gone back and added material to the articles after publication. I’ll try to point this out as well. Having the articles online, and thus editable after publication, is one nice advantage over print! Here are the most recent 34 articles I wrote, in the order they were published.
Inverted Toss And Bounce Juggling – This article showcased upside down juggling. Since writing it, I’ve obtained a picture of Andre Reverhos juggling five clubs upside down, a video of him performing three clubs inverted, and a video of Chester Dolphin performing his act. Unfortunately, I’m not permitted to share the videos online. However, I can share the incredible photo of the five clubs inverted. It’s easily one of the greatest juggling tricks ever achieved.
I’ve also recently been given a video showing Marko Dzamtuvski doing some inverted bounce juggling while balancing on a head pedestal.
Common Juggling Misconceptions – Since writing this article, I discovered much additional information about Frank Le Dent, resulting in the article listed below. I also was given a photo showing the clubs that Albert Petrowski used for 7 clubs. Below is Petrowski juggling with 6 of them.
