Damian, thanks for sharing the clip of jason. Was he good, no, he was amazing, did he entertain me though? no...it was like watching a card guy doing onehanded muliple cuts, cool yes, but boring as hell after awhile (why are you doing something just to do it?), and that is the point I think many jugglers miss. It is the same as magicians. We go [censored] over guys who have amazing skill, but guess what, while I would be a bit upset at some lay person loving a bad magician but a great entertainer, it would be because I was jealous. When you are part of a community there is always a push to out do the next guy, and I understand that this is really a joke that Jason is doing, a diss, I would hope to think Jason would not do this in a real performance for the lay audience, for other jugglers fine, probably would be pretty funny, like a magician ragging on Blaine, but when I talk to my friends who are not magicians who like him, I don't say bad things, even though I know he is an ass. It is out of respect, respect to another persons thoughts, and respect to the fact that he can entertain with amazingly simple tricks. I really do not get the jealous outrage from Jason, and Penn and others. I understand that it is not a demanding routine with three balls, but that is why people love it, only three balls, it is simple, something the audience can follow and think, [censored], I can throw three balls into the air and catch them, but that was beautiful, I could never do that. I know that your brother is a gold winner, and that you are very proud of him, but I know lots of gold winning magicians that are not known to anyone outside the magic world, and never will, becuase simply put they only think about magic, and not about their real audience who is not made up of magicians. Bliss some how did something that made people connect with him, not the skill. Jason did a neat joke, but would I want to watch that version over again. No, there was no feeling behind it, I trully belive that 5 balls make it look ugly, I hope to see Jason perform live one day so I can see his true style, and I am sure I would like it, I love jugglers, I have seen some amazing feats, but none have touched the emotion of bliss, and I know you said your brother can but dude, there is only so much a brother can say, with out seeming to be just upset that his brother is not the one on the email lists, get it on tape, put it on line and prove us all wrong, in fact I would love to have you get your brother to the next WMS, talk to Rich, if he is that amzing I would love to see him, as I am sure everyone here is ( I am serious on this, I would really love to see your brother, he sounds like he is a mix of Jason and Bliss, the best of both worlds). Take care, and thanks for the debates, and for respecting everyones choice to like Bliss, but know that your tone, has been one that makes it seem that we are all stupid and wrong, hence my posting, I understand that you think Jason is better, he is, but also remeber that we are a lay audience to this as much as Jason and Bliss are lay audiences to us, they may even like Blaine, but hey thats their right, but I don't think you'd see my brother posting on a jugglers site that I am better than Blaine, it would be stupid, so hopefully we can all agree that Bliss was great, he entertained us, and that Jugglers know better.
