Posted:This space is for all those funksters busy improving their technique by learning new moves - made-up or traditional.



Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Posted:infinate one handed BF hyperloop (although only forwards as backwards infinate still won't work, I cant make them go where I know they need to go! rolleyes) and then making the poi go in a strange bi-axis cicle plane that I can't explain, and which is hard as fook to make it continuous.

Inverted isolated buzzsaw thingie but going in from one side and immediately back out the same side, forcing a weird hyperloop before turning and pulling it back through buzzsaw plane and exiting on the opposite side. I think it's pretty similar to oli-ing but a little different.

Vertical hyperloops under the arm exiting above the head, nice way to enter a matrix too smile

Posted:btb butterfly crossers, btb butterfly ww where one poi carries one way and the other carries the other way, some other btb butterfly ww timings, some weird bfly weave separations and 5bt bfly weave where you use the transition on the wrong end of the ttn to move to the other plane, which feels as wierd as hell. and a reverse ttn where you throw under the arm for the inside beat that i saw one wheel dave do one time.
wrong beat leg thru wraps... do a 5bt weave, the 3rd beat thru wraps and the 4th leads over as normal, then the 5th unwraps. tangles with one poi thru wrapped, swapping which one each transition. tick-tock wraps in tangles and buzzsaw tangles. other 3rd beat things like inverting it. which is fun. not half as fun as doing a 3bt and inverting the first beat over... it's like doing a 5bt just changing plane a beat early. turning 3bt's with the lead poi thruwrapping on a bicep and the other sneaking through the gap thats left.

might go and play with a stick for a bit now.

Posted:Wow. What's a tick-tock wrap?

BTB waist wraps both directions with low carries, windmill turns and pirouettes, double throws, various entries into airwraps and hyperloops from stalls

Posted:spiral.. check spherculism.. (though I posted the basic wrap theory here too) but I think matt put and uber old clip of mine in the galleries somewhere of the tick tock wraps.. they just boucne back and forth between points.. like the pendelum in a clock ticking and tocking..

Posted:yep, half beat wraps, one bouncing between the top of the wrists, the other bouncing on the bottom. NYC showed me them ages ago when he came to sheffield... theres a video on glowstickers.com (and it might be in the teknoturtles vid too) of tangled ones.
buzzsaw ones are *hard*. the trick is to keep the strings tight until just before they wrap, so they wrap loose, then pull your hands apart quick enough to make them bounce with tight strings... if they arn't, the bottom one won't make it across. oh yeah, keep your hands far enough appart so the poi don't wrap too far round. and on the 'untangled' wrap, keep the strings crossed... if they end up parrallel they won't tangle when they go back. but they look cool when they work. and you can do them with your hands at the top and bottom too, but bouncing from the bottom to the top requires a yank and looks bad. there's probably a way to make it work though.

This is a real turning point for me. Oh hello all I'm new here but have been reading for a long time.

Posted:Lessee, I finally figured out what the hell a notcoleman5 is, no thanks to the descriptions on this board. Now I can do it, it's ugly, but forward and reverse and from right to left and left to right. Oddly, getting forward and reverse was easier than right to left.

What else, a lot of the stuff from the SS videos. Hyperloops from all directions, one of my favorites being the overhead thingy at about 1:15 in SS1. Also doing other hyperloop stuff including a weird btb waistwrap looking one and a hyperloop double-stop off the wrists in either direction. Also working on 5bt weaves with a hyperloop transition from side to side, also, very, ugly.

that's funny because I started calling them that when I wrote the basic wrap theory thread to have a way to reference them.. I hadn't read any of your stuff there on it :mrbighead:

Posted:I learned this cool move that makes even the most expaerienced spinner hit themselves in the nads.. I call it 'not paying attention.' its real simple.. start spinning really complicated utl or atl stuff, get someone to talk to you from across the apartment.. and try yelling back a conversation.. and have them say something that just makes your brain go "WTF" like " a moose once bit my sister.. " or "if it weren't for my horse, I wouldnt have spent that year in college.." and tada.. instant success..


and I learned some utl antispinnyness.. whihc was dramatically cut short.. by the above move..

Posted:Ok I learned I jumpy spinning move while doing the corkscrew, aim is to get perfect three in a row (any more and I get really dizzyubbloco). 90% success rate without fire, tried it with fire and did a face wrap eek. Singed eyelashes and light burn/bruise (can't tell yet but I think bruise) to edge of eye area.
oh and also linking throws into combination: btb throw, under left leg and over left arm, under right leg, repeat. about 60% success rate. (but I only started btb throws today). Still cant do btb weave or butterfly yet. grrr.
