I record two podcasts about two of my favourite hobbies: juggling and science fiction novels. Both of them have the most boring names possible. This is intentional. I like it when you can say a name people instantly know what they are getting.
The Juggling Podcast is one I usually record with Pola, and we talk about our travels and shows we do and shows we see. We do interviews with lots of famous and some not so famous jugglers. We do workshops about performing and various other topics. The thing is, we haven’t recorded a new episode for two months, and there was a two month gap before the last one too. This is down to a number of factors:
1. We’ve been away from home for ages.
2. We’ve not been to a juggling convention since the EJC.
3. I’ve been in a lot of pain from a trapped sciatic nerve and haven’t been juggling much.
4. We’ve both been working hard on other projects.
Of course, we don’t intend to “podfade” entirely. Once we get inspired by new topics and find new people to talk to we’ll start producing podcasts more regularly again. You can subscribe using this feed.
On my last cruise I met Matthew, a magician from the UK. His promo image was good, but he looked rough. Intentionally rough, with stubble and scruffy hair. Good for some gigs, but to cruise clientele it might seem a bit too rough. I offered to come along to his technical run and snap some photos, to see if I could better capture his current image. I had no control over the lighting, and no time to make him pose past saying “Look at me… now!” CLICK. But I think I got a few good photos. The best is the one above, even though it could be sharper and a bit less blue. The full selection of passable attempts is here
Luke Jumping in Portugal
Every time I upload a new album of travel photos I’ll post the link here. They’ll be in one or both of two places:
I have loads of photos hosted on this website: http://lukeburrage.com/photos/index.php?album=travel_photos These are sorted first by continent, then by country, then by city or visit. Also you can find the International Mugshots Gallery which consists of Pola and I taking the same photo of ourselves pretty much everywhere we visit.
I also put some recent albums on Sosauce.com: http://www.sosauce.com/user9620/albums/ including photos from my trips to Africa and Portugal, and a day with Pola on the beach.
Pola on the beach.
I travel a lot as a professional juggler, and as of this year I’ve visited every continent. If you want to see all (or most of) the places I’ve visited, I keep track using the footprints feature at Sosauce.com:
I’m also trying out a service at Sosauce.com that lets you record and share your trips, so I’ve loaded up my next trip to South America:
I’ve been to all these destinations before (I’ve been to Buenos Aires and Montevideo more times than I care to count) but I’m looking forward to revisiting them all. For example, I’ve been to see the Magellanic Penguins and the Rock Hopper Penguins on the Falkland Islands, but not the King Penguin rookery.
On my Sosauce.com trips page you can also find the route of my last trip http://www.sosauce.com/trip/1318 which took me to East Africa, and earlier interesting trip routes. Eg. Pola and I went to Antarctica, and you can see exactly where we visited here: http://www.sosauce.com/trip/1319
