Why Can’t I Juggle In My Dreams?

Can you juggle in your dreams?  I can’t.  Whenever I’m juggling in my dreams I’m uncoordinated and slow.  I wonder why that is?  When you’re dreaming, you can do most anything else, I don’t see why juggling is different.  In fact, juggling is so dependent on muscle memory I’d think it would come naturally.  Maybe it has something to do with juggling relying on a real environment (with gravity) to make it possible, and your mind can’t recreate that perfectly.  I was thinking about this the other week when I was watching Inception.  If you could juggle in real life, you wouldn’t even need that personal object to test if you were in the real world.  You could just try and juggle, and if you were awful, then you’re dreaming.  Or you’re just an awful juggler.

Juggling Music Monday: Kids by Sleigh Bells

I heard this song in a fan-made promo video for Invicta FC2, and it got me pretty pumped for the event (which was last Saturday), so it made its way into my juggling playlist.  It’s got a pretty slick beat and some quick vocals that are fun, but my biggest complaint about it is it’s pretty short.

Juggling Music Monday: Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine

I’ve been listening to this one for a long time, it’s pretty epic.  It’s a bit slower though, so you kind of have to double up on it or do patterns that you can really control the speed on. Some other Florence + The Machine songs I listen to for juggling are Spectrum, Drumming Song, and Rabbit Heart.

Juggling Music Monday: 11h30 by Danger

This is a new feature I’m going to do weekly, to share what juggling music I’ve been listening to recently.  The song this week is 11h30 by Danger, it has a pretty neat beat and goes through a few phases, which I like to play with. Not a bad song to run to either.

Quick Juggling Video

Made this quick juggling video to test out a new setup for recording.  The audio was just set in via youtube, but it seemed to match the routine pretty well.  I’ll get a new video up that has real music soon though.
