I was doing a hired gig last weekend at an outdoor rave, and my arms had gotten tired (the rest of the spinners from here were all doing other things that weekend, so it was only I)and I'd begun thwacking myself, but I hadn't yet lit up my latest and largest set of wicks. I was thrown off by the thwacking, but eventually I made the decision to light them. SHWOOMPH! I could feel the heat from them while I was spinning, like being near a campfire. I was very glad I'd gotten the nerve to light them up. The crowd loved it. The nervousness went away and I enjoyed dancing with them.why I got into physics: you know those questions that pop into your head when you're a kid like "how big is the universe?" and "how does light work?", the kind where you can only look so far into the answer before you realize you can't seem to see any farther, but you know there's an entire ocean more of truth to it? Well, welcome to theoretical physics, where you get to spend your time looking for answers that a six-year-old stores away who then goes to play by a stream. One gains a great appreciation for one's own grand ignorance, and a great fondness for playing in streams.next hired gig: tonight! crap, I gotta go!

tho' I must say Metallica are rather too poncy for me now (old=good for them) for twirling i'd like to try some trancy stuff but i've never really looked.. metal-wise, the terribly fast Strapping Young Lad are ace... tho' your forearms get really tired, really fast.Plans for future - I've been considering coming all the way round the world to AUSTRALIA an' NZ, if anyone'd like to meet up (this will be next year or perhaps even longer) please email me!!So... enough is enough.Oooh, but quote would be "I like the cover. 'Don't Panic'". Hyper-intell. blues will gettit.love, p_g xx
