Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

The WWHHHOOOOMMMPPPHHHH of the flame. The smell of kerosene. The screams of agony.

Tell me where you're going and I'll meet you there.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:Hi pozee, been a while.
Get out of the States. Obviously I'm not judging all US spinners here, (and no Ray, I'm not being anti-American ) but from what I've seen the US spinners have a very, well, American style of spinning. You see those damn big cars cruising down big ass American roads? They look cool as, but they lack a certain style and finnesse. A lot of US spinners are the same - look cool, but in other countries they do things differently.

I can recomend you download the Spinning in Paris video as it features Cass spinning. She is the definition of grace and style and my most favourite spinner of all time, ever.

I also recommend selling a kidney to get out the country. Summer is kicking off in Oz and there's some excellent spinners there! And by coincidence Cass is in Melbourne for a few months soon and Knoxious is in Brisbane, along with lots of amazing spinners all over the country.

hope you find what you're looking for

Posted:I'd echo the Spinning in Paris recommendation - the skill and cheekiness with poi shown there is incredible there's also some contact staff in there which is very impressive to see

the videos at poiinthepark.co.uk are mostly very good, and 'how to' is an especially irritiating piece of spinning - so smooth and casual

years of practise to go until i can spin like that i fear...

Posted:Spinning in Paris is fabulous in its grace and the ability of people to spin and Smile.

I want to do that too without the balls falling from the sky.
