Dubé has recently stepped it up in the internet department . . . and we love it!
A few juggling equipment companies have started a blog or posted some videos, but Dubé has decided to attack the internet on all fronts. Last week the great people at Dubé sent out an email officially introducing the world to their new Facebook page, YouTube channel, blog, and Twitter feed.
Dubé has been supplying jugglers with equipment and training materials since the mid ’70’s and have always seemed to stay at the forefront of innovation, quality, and professionalism. This big step into the Web 2.0 world continues that legacy of leadership we have come to expect from them.
Here’s a video recently posted on the Dubé YouTube channel. It’s an introduction to the world of cigar box manipulation.
I used to love the column in Juggler’s World magazine where they listed where jugglers would be performing . I was able to catch a lot of great juggling acts because of that column. This is an attempt to re-create that online. I want this to be a place where you can come to see who is performing where.
Not only will this be an entertaining read, but also a great hub of information on where to see great jugglers do their thing.
When Wes Peden released the short juggling film Expectations, we were hoping it would be the first of many similar projects. It looks like our dreams have come true! Wes just released a new short film titled “Plaid.”
Here’s how he describes the film:
Plaid is a collection of juggling inventions and compositions made from the love of weird catches and style conscious throws. The film covers many controversial topics such as flipping, up catching, under the leg and backcross desegregation in relation to five club juggling, and what exactly the edition of purple handles has on modern 3 club juggling.
We are excited to see how Wes delivers his unique, art-infused juggling style in this new venture.
Even if you didn’t shell out the $10 to buy Wes Peden’s Expectations, you’ll enjoy watching him answer questions about the creative process he went through to create the video. The inisight is priceless; especially for all of us hoping to make creative juggling videos ourselves.
(You can see Wes’ influence popping up all over the juggling subculture. Tony Pezzo’s latest video–although showing off Tony’s individual style–seems to have some Wes Peden qualities to it. Chick out Tony’s video here.)
