Posted:This meet has been going great, there has been 200+ revellers attending the fire meet lately - a professional drumming crew arrived last week and there was so much energy around that people driving cars past and pedestrians from Brunswick st were all facing the firey cacophany - it's better than the summer sessions!!

wooop!!!!

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?

Posted:Awesome picies Bender babe!
I'm gonna try rreeaaalllyyy hard to get my tushy down there this week. Actually I'm a bit excited as I just picked up my brand new monster pois that I've been waiting for, for ages.Isn't it bizarre that you get a new toy and all you wanna do is set fire to it?
