Ryan vs Dorkman

2006-03-15 19:08:59.73664+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Via Borklog, a little choreography that made me sit up and watch: Ryan vs Dorkman.

What began as a friendly rivalry between two effects artists explodes off TheForce.Net's FanFilms Forum and into the real world in a lightsaber battle royale.

And in the spirit of 'net videos we recently enjoyed, I offer this film of Jason Garfield doing a noteworthy 5-ball juggling feat to the tune of The Beatles' "Golden Slumbers"/"The Weight"/"The End" (which itself is in homage (or diss if you prefer) to the original Chris Bliss 3-ball version. I like 'em both: Bliss's original is dancing with juggling balls, Garfield's version shows amazing skill and fortitude.

Cool, I'd heard about that sequence, but hadn't seen it. Yeah, Bliss is a showman, Garfield is a technician, I'm glad I saw both versions.

I much prefer the Bliss version. Sure, it's not as technically challenging as Garfield's, but I found it *much* more interesting. One was an interpretation of the music, the other was juggling masturbation.

"juggling masturbation" seems to be the party line in the comments about Garfield's. I still liked it.

Don't get me wrong, it was a ton of fun to watch. If I had to choose one to keep in my collection, it'd be the original.
