Roderick does have good spinning skills. He does curls with both hands on a 6' uni.
Scot how did you find that?
That video rules!

I searched on google for "juggler" he has an ad. Don't click on those ads because, the person paying for it, has to pay per click and that's kinda mean.

actually, the WORST busker -- I just remembered a reglular pan handler in Hamilton who would pass off his pan handling as busking by hitting a bucket with a stick. ...no distinguishable rhythm. I always thought he was funny.

at first I thought he was talking about New Orleans chris. But then I decided that he is talking about Christopher Cool after reading the St Petersburg thread. I like Cool's show too.

There was this teenage black kid looking all funkedelic with a sequined rainbow outfit, jerry curl hair, grinning like he was Cathy Lee Gifford on a Carnival commercial on the boardwalk this summer. He was not in a good area. He had a boom box and was playing music and it was really gay music to begin with but he was dancing like Napoleon Dynamite only it looked more like figure skating or ballet. It was really disturbing. There were a couple of people looking at him but I think they were really just trying to figure out what the hell he was doing rather than watching his show. Kids were laughing at him and I have to admit I laughed along with them. I watched for a minute or two in passing and it was just pretty sad. He did get a fin from a little girl that was sitting near by while I was watching...

There was this guy in Verona italy who had painted his face white and was wearing a polyester dracula cape - the kid's halloween costume that you buy in a drugstore kind- and he was trying to be a statue. A group of boys between five and seven started making fun of him and after about two minutes of this he just cracked. He started yelling some of the worst obscenities I've ever heard, which made the kids laugh, which made him yell more, which made them laugh more and it just kept going until he got so mad that he literally fell over himself and the kids ran away laughing wildly.

He may have been one of the worst buskers-- but that was one of the best shows I've ever seen.

I was just having a look/see to make sure I wasn't on anybody's list.

Guess I could list myself, but that would be soooo pathetic, but then again that's never stopped me before.

Default FRuit Loop?

Waht about the Fruit Loop? I'm drunk cause friggin cold front in FL and I'm bored and found this post.

I won't give names but someone else can. Dan want to give a shout out? I don't want to see a fat guy with his legs behind his head wearing old sweats who can contort himself through an oversized hulahoop then finds tht he still cant accomplish the feet so he breaks it. You don't need talent to have a show, hell I admit I dont' have skills but find something that the audince can watch and not toss their cookies. hmmm maybe thats what he wants.

well he is a big fat guy who contorts through a hula hoop. like big and fat that's his thing. When I saw him in Edminton he was calling himself the worlds worst street performer. You would not believe what a fat dude doing contortions looks like. He was my favorite street act I saw that year. I still tell people about it. And Chris and I were both named in this thread as "worst buskers". So Nah.
