Apparently Matthew Peplinski likes to smoke pipes and is a pretty good juggler.
Here’s his attempt to do both at once:
Get’s a little smokey in there eh Matthew!
Three things we like about this video: 1.The background music. 2.The subtle midwest accent. 3.The high-pitched giggle at the end by one of Matthew’s fellow Order of Collegiate Pipe Smokers member.1 comment
A long time ban on juggling in the forest preserves of Cook County Illinois has been lifted!
According to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times:
Forest preserve commissioners were in clean-up mode during their Wednesday meeting. They cleared off the books some old — and possibly illegal — ordinances and better defined “misconduct rules,” including what constitutes indecent exposure on the forest preserve links.
This included removing ordinances against juggling, acrobatic feats, and fortune telling.
We’re glad that Cook County officials finally realized that JUGGLING IS NOT A CRIME!

Frank Pizarro of the FDNY explained, “it worked, because the fire department, fire, torches flying everywhere . . . it’s really a fun project. And it’s going to educate young people especially, as to fire safety.”
FKB and FDNY will film the PSA in a couple of weeks. We’ll let you know when it hits the airwaves.

In a recent interview on Remote Patrolled, Nick Pike opens up about his America’s Got Talent experience. He discusses the three acts he was able to perform, his minor feud with judge Piers Morgan, and his post-AGT plans.
When asked if he would have done anything differently, Nick says:
I have no regrets. I achieved what I set out to do – and then some. I had a lot of fun performing and meeting all the other contestants on the show. I would love to thank all of my supporters and fans out there, and challenge any of my critics to get out of their arm chair audition for the show, make it to the top 48, and then get back to me!!

It seems that Dexter only appeared on the childrens’ show twice, but we were impressed with the skill that must have gone in to creating a Muppet that can carry on a conversation and juggle.No comments
Our hat’s off to Nick for getting as far as he did in the competition and showing great class by apologizing for some angry behavior exhibited the night before.
Nick has a lot of skill and a lot of passion that comes out every time he performs. We appreciate him representing jugglers this year on AGT!

The cruise ship juggler–who suffered the fate of nearly all jugglers on the popular talent competition last week–was invited back to join the top 48 line-up in Hollywood last night.
Nick received this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when the sword swallowing act of Twisted Trystan and Krystan withdrew from the competition.
Here’s his performance from last night:
That’s right, even though they brought him back, the judges gave Nick nothing but grief. Luckily the judges no longer decide who moves forward. Nick Pike’s fate is now in the hands of the American public.1 comment
We should have seen it coming.
Last week, the few jugglers that got through to Las Vegas on America’s Got Talent were quickly sent packing.
In what seems like an endless supply of rejection, the jugglers were once again dismissed from the summer talent show, despite demonstrating skill far beyond many who were put through to Hollywood.
Those of us in the Juggling Subculture are once again left scratching our heads, wondering if any jugglers will ever be given a the chance to present their talents to the American public.

It was an extra bonus to see some baby juggling during the trailer for Megamind.
We doubt Dube will be coming out with a line of stage babies any time soon, and we don’t recommend trying this with the real thing unless, of course. you happen to have superpowers!1 comment
