Posted:----------- Spinning@... Update -----------

Dear all



we have moved to a new location.... se here for the new treead

http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/show.../o/fpart/1/vc/1





see you at the rag factory..





this is why we have moved...





We had discussions in the pub on Tuesday regarding the use of the market for spinning@spitz and thanks to friends we have a much clearer idea of whats going on:



Unfortunately we are not allowed back into the market for our workshops. It seems that while we have been out the market for the work, there has been a change of management. The new management appears to want to increase the value of the market area (gentrification is the term being used). This has led to many of the existing tenants not being invited to re enter the market, our selves included.



The stgeorges residents association would have had no idea we would not be allowed back in, so although annoying its not their fault. We still have contacts in the market and we dont want to cut out any future possibility of re-entering the market at a later date by kicking up a fuss, especially when there is no chance at all of us using the space in the current climate.



We need to do 2 things 1. Find a temporary place to play ASAP (see top) and 2. Find a permanent new home to help us move forward we need your help. Please think of the people around you, be it your parents, friends, colleagues etc and see if there is anyone who may be able to finds us a new home put the feelers out there.



If you find somewhere that fits our criteria (see below) then please get a contact name, a number or email and if appropriate, have a brief chat with them as a recommendation or personal contact makes a huge difference. If they are interested, forward their details to me and I will then chase it up.



We require an indoor or covered outdoor area with adequate lighting able to house up to 100 people on a Tuesday evening within 10mins from a tube and centrally located. We also require power to run a portable stereo.



On another note we have decided to have a Xmas party to raise some funds to help us secure a new spinning@..... s venue. The confirmed date is Thursday 20th December in a Brixton from about 7.30 pm to 1 am. More details to follow.



Hopefully we will get sorted very soon and in the meantime we will meet at the poet next week and maybe look at ice skating, bowling or something else there after.



Huge hugs



Kev and the guys at spinning@.... s

Posted:I will be there tonight, as will some of my Planet Angel buddies yay for being back on a Tuesday and not having any tube strikes!

See you there - and Pink Poi - I'm sorry, I deleted your (and a couple of others actually) private message without reading them - I will look out for you tonight - I'm easy to spot - big blue cord troosers, big brown curly hair, a big grin and pink and yellow sonic star poi or a short fire staff! (non lit of course)

Posted:Sorry, got to be quick, work... Na, my "past-life's-punishment" is quite hectic at the mo (ahahahand I was a very naughty boy it seems.)

Ooohohhoho-yesss we're on (I'm very happy to say.) STSP: 7-10 hopefully down by the Spits Bar end (unless the book fair's on in which case up at the other end but nay matter, it's not as though people won't be able to find us

Coleman, good for you and respect. I've been thinking of taking a job closer to Spits so that it's easier to get to Poi, but I haven't quite made it happen, so... well done sir, true commitment

Sorry Pink Poi, roof's made of wood , but yeah, lights and flashy things are great and most welcome. (As are all colours of skin, Poi, clothing, make up, hair, and of course, humour.)

Havoc - 'a drinking night away instead?' Nooo, 'a drinking night away, as well '

Ali Ali Ali, hmm... see colour bit above,... And then colour me happy when I see you

Chains!!! You gonna be there? How far are you away anyway? Can we bring Spits to you I'm thinking? Perhaps not, but where there's a will, there's usually a teacher trying to break it... Reminds me of a quote (or is it a misquote...) "God! Save me from your sheep!!" People often try to do the right thing, but if it's cutting into your spinning time, then it's juuuust possible that they are evil; and were sent to this world to destroy happiness, light and all things whole and round (and thus spinning.) Dunno, shooting in the dark here, but I'll keep an eye out for a sheepskin to replace your carpet jacket (so that you can move more freely among/ away from the flock )

See you in a bit, ahhhhhhhhh nooooooo, that was supposed to be quick, I got carried away,

Posted:Coleman:- Rahhhhhh - didn't see you (well actually I probably did but I didn't talk to you, or maybe I did that as well but......oh fuck it)

Yay good night last night, although as Jonathon points out it did go on for about 8 hours in the 3 we were down there (not a bad thing me thinks)

Big Hugz to all involved and bigger Hugz to Ewan & Carrey

Oh cheers to Simian - hehehehe

Got some mad 2 person staff contact down with Jez and 2 people actually asked me how to do stuff (how cool? - )

Errrrmmmmm.......and REALLY sorry for the previous Thursday when I turned up far too hammered to actually do any poi......(Thinking I still managed to remember to pay for the night though, but if 'tis not the case please collar me)

Hehehehehehehehe (Random gigglage)

Posted:Hellooo all,

It's Tuuuesday it's Tuuuesday, (we're gonna dance all day, dance all day, dance all day to this DJ.)

Hmm, almost didn't mind getting out of bed this morning... Almost

Diana, yay new person!! Or are you new? I wasn't down at the last Clapham Common but I have met a couple of Diana's. Hmm, guess we'll find out tonight (Quite tall, browney-blond hair, slim... err, two ears and a nose? SmallBoy - be calm.)

Davethehat2002! A big smiley welcome to you too. Tell me though, as a hat, a)how have you come to spin (I would have thought contact would be easier?), and b) how do you get from a to b without people trying to put you in a circus or film, or on their head for that matter? We don't have many sentient objects spinning with us on Tuesdays, just the Poi and toys that we play with I suppose (mine have a sick sense of toilet humour that generally gets a laugh when they end up between my legs at the end/ beginning of a moment of distraction.) Do you have a human handler to make life easier? We could potentially find you one if not.

SmallBoy - another act of niceness . You do realise that things are going to be a lot warmer for you in hell because of these moments of weekness I've been noticing? Number one dude, take care of hims'all I'm saying, the rest will come to you when you're a millionaire and can afford to buy it. Until then, head down and stop making the nice people comfortable. Sh!t anybody would think spinning was a 'sharing' thing. Yuck.

Erm, part from that, hope everyone's well and happy. Oo, and it was me Birthday yesterday . One more step toward the light (starting to get a tan now,) tripping over old white beard, farting continuously, dribbling unexcuseably, and my mind!! Where's it all gone? Can't remember how to fly, play the piano, predict the future, travel faster than light, jump tall buildings, or remember which pocket I put my keys in, all the little things really Still, I can still remember where Spitalfields is, and with enough head injuries over the next few weeks I think I'll probably be able to jog some of it back into memory .

Chains - you the man, looking forward to more of your tunes (you Skat-man-word-remembering-funky-moving-fiend-in-a blue-dragon-shirt-person you.)

So!!! Yay, nice one all round, and I'm older but still none the wiser (and that'd be 27 years none-the-wiser don't ye know (old for a mushroom but young for a tree ...and somewhere inbetween I should just about be.))

See you all later,

SmilE

Posted:sorry, i lied about making it to spitals. i'd been up all night going into tuesday, and decided to go home and get some sleep instead of playing. isn't it sad when one's priorities get so mixed up?

i WILL be there for the last tuesday of the month though!!

SpacemonkE, let's see...yes I've got 2 ears, a nose, kinda skinny, and I'm 5'10" (or is it metric over here??)...but my hair is short and very dark. oh well, 4 out of 5 isn't bad.

Long may we continue! Certainly til it starts getting f-f-f-freezing anyway Nice one Ewan and Carrey, hope you're feeling better today, all a bit knackered and spaced last night!

Posted:I reckon that even if it's freezing, we'll just have to spin harder to keep warm
I'll be happy turning up pretty much whatever the weather as long as I'm not the only one there.
I think the only exception to that is when it's bad enough to cancel the trains into London.

Having said that and tempted fate, I'm obviously going to get a really nasty cold next week and decide it's far too cold to leave my bed


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
