With my brother being in the business, I get to hear some of the backstage scuttlebutt sometimes.
Comparing Bliss to the jugglers that actually compete and push themselves is sort of like comparing Olympic skaters to performers in the Ice Capades. The Capades skaters are competent, and might be entertaining, but it's not really on the same level.
Garfield also breaks down Bliss' "choreography" in an amusing way. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 6460#0m27s
"four basic juggling moves" put to "music that people like."
In fact, he does pretty much the same routine to another song here...
Having heard Garfield interviewed, I know that he came up with that routine to match Bliss and filmed it within only a few days, 4 or 5, and not the years that Bliss has been doing the same routine.
I always wanted to see the side by side of the routines, and I've never seen it, so I just went ahead and did it myself.
And last but not least, some more cool stuff from the World Juggling Federation...just because... it's cool.
