Once a topic gets to twenty pages, we lock it and start another topic. You can still go back and read the past questions, but to ask new ones, please do that here.

Mr. Altman, why do you start a new topic after a topic has gotten to 20 pages long? Just curious.

Hi Anthony...

I was wondering... since you can do 7 club pirouettes pretty well... and can juggle 9 balls... also pretty damn well...
Have you ever flashed 9 clubs?

Anthony Gatto has never flashed 9 clubs. Or at least he is not on the record sheet for that. Only three people have officially flashed 9 clubs and that is Bruce Tiemann, Scott Sorensen, and Chris Fowler.

Actually, they 3 flashed 9 sticks, not 9 clubs.

I don't think that anybody can get good runs of 9 clubs (well, not for now, at least). Just a flash is possible, but I don't think that anybody is able to control it...
Willy told me that he already flashed 9 clubs, with his small clubs...
I attempted 9 clubs just to see how it goes, but there are too many clubs in the air hahah...

I didn't know that the 9 club flash has been done. :S

His baby clubs count for nothing. come on, at least full length 75s. that's as small as it should get to be valid.

How long would you estimate your longest 7b overhead run is?

Ville, I have never even tried to time an overhead run. That's one thing I really don't do is focus on records with tricks. I feel it to be superfluous. I am sure I could run that pattern for a minute if I wanted to but like I always say... why?

That's exactly why I said "estimate." I was expecting this reply

'Why' seems to be a strange question here. I mean, why breaking records on anything anyway? If you go for one minute with 8 balls you can go for one minute with 7 balls overhead as well I think.
I don't get your point here, Anthony. If you want (or wanted in the past) to break records why only doing it with the basic patterns?

Really? I mean really? This is amazing to me that you couldn't understand this. Can you answer what that would do for me? Will it get me another job? Will my wife have a newfound respect for me because I can do seven balls overhead for a minute? Will I even get a spot of JIS for this? Think about it, and I mean think, don't just say... "if I could I would," that's not thinking.

Beside the fact that when you become a real juggler and just having the knowledge that you can do something is enough satisfaction, there is also this:I have a practice regimen that I do in order to do the best possible performance I can in the evening. I am at work for 10 - 12 hours per day. I am integrated into the show in other ways than just my act. I am a back up artist for one of the characters as well. I get about 20 minutes per day to cram in a lunch and dinner. I now have a baby to take care. I get about 5 - 6 hours sleep per night. I have to walk my dog twice per day on top of all this. If you can't understand why I don't waste my energy on doing seven balls overhead for a minute to make a youtube video for people to watch, then you haven't entered the real world yet.

It's not surprising to me, at all, Anthony. People, not just jugglers, are totally obsessed with records, especially "World Records." To your credit, you don't try to rack up every single record you could.

Everyone is going to have their fifteen minutes of fame, and hold some kind of world record, even if they have to make up some obscure way of doing it, like, "The most throws of seven balls, facing the east, wearing a red shirt, while standing on one foot."

I'm going for a new record: "Fewest Catches of Seven Balls in 10 Minutes" :o(

You won't be able to do that, Andy. I already hold that record. I didn't set a new record, but I tied the old one. I'm afraid that will be the best you can do, too.

I feel really bad for Anthony because he only gets 5-6 hours of sleep each night.
