Do any of you have any other hobbies besides anything related to the cube?
My other hobbie is electronics especially high voltage.

I play guitar and bass! I try vocals. Work on solo acoustic folk punk type music. Used to be in a band but it fell apart after a year and a half or so.

I read (political philosophy, novels, etc)
I make things/sew things.
I try and stay active in community things - different forms of activism.

Used to play guitar but got bored of it.
I juggle every now and then.
And I play a lot of computer games.

I'm taking some culinary classes right now.
I take my chili way too seriously. Perhaps I should enter a chili cook-off or something.
So aside from puzzles and cooking, I tend to read between the lines and bitch about the governement and the media.

Just wondering: I know that many cubers out there also juggle. But do any of you guys contact juggle? I'd be really interested in watching a video of someone contact juggle a spherical puzzle.

Maybe I worded my question in a way that made it easy to misunderstand. "Contact juggling" is completely different from "juggling." Contact juggling is when the ball(s) stay in contact with your body at all times. (it never/rarely leaves your body). A sample can be found here:

In about 1995 I wrote a computer program to generate (siteswap) juggling patterns, transitions between them, and animate them.

I can juggle 3 balls in a standard cascade, but not much more. It does fascinate me, and I must recommend this 3 dvd set:
http://www.gandinijuggling.com/newmedia ... eswaps.htm
It is just amazing.



Anyway, my hobbies are buying and watching dvd's (I must have about 700 now), computer programming, maths, and magic tricks.

I can juggle 3 and 4 balls well, and 3 pins very badly.

Board games are my biggest current hobby... maybe even ahead of twisty puzzles. :oops:

I can juggle 2 or 3, but not extremely well.

Used to play ice hockey. Loved it. Wish I still played.

Anyone know what type of spheres are used in contact juggling?
My brother is a good juggler, so he has some decent juggle balls, but I feel like trying contact juggling, but I don't think his is good for that purpose (I may not end up trying it, but if I do, it can be good to know...)

I bought a nice kite when I was in Seaside, Oregon several years ago. Sadly it hasn't seen much flight time. :( The last couple of years I have visited family and camped at Lake Michigan. I have several nephews that have some cool kites that they try to fly at least once during our stay.

My friend is one of the top female jugglers in the world, and she always gets mad when people call them 'pins'. It's 'clubs'. :wink:

Haha.



I've taught her the 3x3 and I'm begingin the 4x4, now she needs to teach me to juggle.

I juggle, I was actually surprised to see the amount of cubers who juggle as well, someone should see the correlation between solving a rubik's cube and having the ability to juggle. Any people who have a hobby of making graphs? hah.

I taught myself to juggle when I was 7 and had no life or friends. Now I'm 18, still don't have a life, but a few friends.

I can juggle 2, 3, 4, and I can do 5-ball flashes but thats about it for 5 right now. Clubs, I can do 2, 3, and 4. I kind of had a period of 3 or 4 years where I didn't juggle, mainly because of time constraints.

I've tried contact juggling, but believe it or not, even after being able to speedsolve a rubik's cube and juggle, my hands don't seem to be flexible enough to do it.

Where did you get the contact juggling ball(s). I memorised 70 digits and then
stoped

Me? I originally got a starter juggling kit when I was 7, those little bean bag type balls.

Once I got older, on of my dad's friends from work juggles and gave me some clubs to try out. They arent anything special, but they are clubs, so I'm happy.

As for now, I just use baseballs, softballs, tennis balls, bouncy balls, anything I can get my hands on, and when there aren't any balls, I juggle rubik's cubes, hah, well now Megaminxes since I have enough. (edit: the bouncy balls and tennis balls aren't too good for contact juggling if you couldn't have guessed, megaminxes not so much either, but rubik's cubes worked, lol)

Also, now that it's snowing, I make snowballs and juggle those while I'm walking down the street.

Search eBay though, they have a good stock of juggling equipment for relatively cheap prices.

edit #2: speaking of contact juggling, has anyone else tried contact juggling clubs? I should probably try to master it with balls first, but I tried with clubs, and it was definitely something to look at, lol. It's kind of hard to get them spinning across your arms without colliding, but I can get it for a few rotations.

I also juggle, mostly 3 ball with some patterns (Mills Mess is a lot of fun). I am OK at rings and clubs, but nothing special. I occasionally juggle my puzzle balls, because they are just sitting there...

I used to play paintball, but not on a unicycle as shown in the avatar of CaptianCrash44...

I used to do gymnastics, but that was many years ago. One of my favorite cubes was a gift from my wife. She sent a picture of me doing a cross on rings to rubiks.com and had a custom sticker cube made :)

I enjoy Ska music, and go to shows once in a while.

Ah. Not too much of a fan of ska besides a few punk ska types (Op Ivy and AAA). I go to shows somewhat often. I'm a fan of different types of "punk" mainly crust punk, some UK82, anarcho, folkpunk, regular folk, indie, etc.

And I still listen to a couple of the bands I wouldn't shut up about on here 2 or 3 years ago.

I'm brand new here but I figure I better share my non-cubing hobbies...

I'm an avid music-game fan. Started with DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) and eventually branched out when I got tired of DDR. Been playing an obscure Japanese music game called Beatmania IIDX which later became available to the USA for the PS2 which was just called Beatmania.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gNlAvtsiKY - One of quite a few videos of me playing Beatmania IIDX.

I'm also hooked on an online MMO called Albatross18. It's cute anime-looking fantasy golf. Yes, golf. I've never played golf before in my life but this game is ridiculously addictive, I don't understand it.

I guess another hobby of mine was playing guitar/bass/drums/keyboards, but I kinda grew out of that.

There you go, weird hobbies. ^_^

puzzles, poker, video games for me :P


Kid w/ the Mohawk - Op Ivy rawks!!! Ya listen to The Pietasters at all?
hehe I could go on and on about punk/ska :P (pre-2000 though, I'm a bit older punker, but not ancient punk lol)...


Does my name still say Kid_with...? It shows my actual name for me..

Nah, I never really gave them a chance, but I'm very limited on what I like as far as ska. Some other ska/reggae type is the "rock steady" genre that has a large punk influence. EX: Leftover Crack, Morning Glory, INDK, etc.


And yeah, most of what I listen to is either from the late seventies/early eighties, or current bands that grasp the "older" sounds. I hate to use the word, but "underground" can explain my musical tastes as far as punk goes.

Good to see someone else appreciates Op Ivy and related bands!

I collected PEZ dispensers when I was younger..

My single contribution to juggling was a kind of pastry.

They looked like colorful juggling bags and I called them "hacky snacks." I believe that they were the first food created that you're supposed to play with. :)

Just wondering: I know that many cubers out there also juggle. But do any of you guys contact juggle? I'd be really interested in watching a video of someone contact juggle a spherical puzzle.


Yeah, I'd love to see someone juggle 3 rubiks cubes, and solve them as they juggle them.

fingerflips perhaps?

Macky had a video of him doing a 1 handed two ball shower while solving a 3x3 in the other.

At the end is me doing the same thing as macky (as you said), under a minute.

Save the file, try not to stream it, it will take forever to download.

if you can memorize pi you should be able to do BLD solving very well. its no different then remembering 20 numbers in a short amount of time.
