Posted:awesome finally a video section!!!

i couldn't find my old thread posted probably around october of last year...

so anyway here is the link that started my online video posting career:

fisher price presents: my first online fire video

parts of this performance were used on COL3

divx encoded (thanx bender ) though unfortunately the live drumming that i danced to has been lost in the compression...
the performance was taped in may 2002

Posted:Eh up mr skunk, to save me double downloading:

Is this the same as the one that was up called skunkwebspin20mb?
That vid has the best collection of Between the legs I've seen
and a wicked east cost bob and foot shuffle style that reminds me of mr nomad?
You two spun together?
Cool stuff

Posted:will do!

maybe i can swing by London together with Sunbeam as we make our way back from BURNING MAN!!! gotta love those jedi powers of persuasion...

btw this is irrelevant to the thread but i saw cirque du soleil's varekai this weekend. first of all, they got these 3 12 year old chinese kids that are just SICK with meteors. at one point one of them is spinning horizontally, launches the meteors into the air, and jumps onto the ground on his back with his feet pointing up. then one of the other kids jumps up with his back on the first kid's feet and does a backflip off of him, stopping halfway through the flip to kick the rapidly descending meteors back up perfectly off of 1 foot!!! then he lands and the first kid on the ground manages to get up and catch it without missing a beat.

not to mention the juggler. well i guess it's too late for that and as i already mentioned him, i might as well say that he was the most impressive juggler i have EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE and i think either juggling 5 ping pong balls in his mouth or the juggling of 6 (not american, the one you actually play with your feet) football sized balls, 2 in each hand, and 2 kicking up off one foot and bouncing off the head clinches that title. and of course rarely have i seen people running full speed and tumbling while Juggling Clubs...

i gotta make myself a set of meteors, now that i've seen it done properly...

um..sorry bout the offtopicness.

Oh dear God. You're not leaving me here in New York City.

If my calculations are correct that would make me the best TECHNICAL spinner in New York City. That's pathetic.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Oh yeah. Firstly, I can safely say after having been to the European Juggling Convention last summer that you'll see better jugglers in your life (Especially if you hang out with Glass and the Euro Juggling gang...)

...also, if you click "Edit" on your first post you can change the name of this thread yourself.

Posted:ah ok nyc i changed the title myself. and yes, i am gonna leave you here indefinitely to rule the roost. maybe you should take over cassandra's Poi classes (hehehe) mr. technical. so in the meantime let's freakin get together and play already since it's been like a month and a half since i had an effective (more than 20 minutes) Poi session...

and thanks kindly dantana, i been doing Poi for quite some time so that is my excuse...

i am very psyched to be meetin the london gang this fall hopefully, not just because of all the innovative Poi culture but also especially if any of you can juggle like that d00d in cirque...
