<xaeda steps up from her table wearing a gobsmacked expression, makes her way towards the stage, trips over her dress, knocking somebodys glass of champagne to the floor, gets back up again soaked in champagne, and wobbles up to the podium to accept her "staffie" award>wow, thankyou so much Malcom! I'm surprised and honoured, and sooo so so happy

To everyone else that entered - I'm sure it was *very*, *very* close, and I'm really looking forward to seeing all of your videos. Cassandra, frog-girl, sweetie - pleeeeze stop all this "master" bollocks

heheCharles - Well obviously my spinning is heavily influenced by the work of Kant, Wittgenstein and Kuhn, who have inspired within me a seething boredom and frustration which makes me wanna run away and play with staff instead of reading their confusing arguments

hehehe. "ahem, and I'd like to thank certain dull german philosophers without whom I might actually bother to study....."As for gymnastics, I'll gladly teach ya some stuff at the festival

so start stretching them old bones now! ;-)(i know, i know, bones don't stretch....figure of speech, k?). heh.Wooh, I'm off to the 'shop' to contemplate what on earth I'm gonna get. *bounce*, this has made my day. week. month. heh. Malcom, thankyou so much on behalf of all of us for organising this whole thing....you put so much love and effort into making this community what it is, and I think we probably don't thank you often enough.) You rock! (now run along and finish the tape, I wanna see everybody else

Posted:So Xaeda, after watching some of your staff work I can see you took one of Wittgenstein's lines from Tractatus Logico Philosophicus to heart..."We could present spatially an atomic fact which contradicted the laws of physics, but not one which contradicted the laws of geometry."Sounds like a early 1920's description of someone doing impossible things with a firestaff, but still being bound by geometric reason if nothing else.Hee hee hee

Posted:Heh, give us a few years to practise and I'm sure we'll all be transcending the laws of geometry ;-) Maybe we could transcend the laws of thermodynamics too? We'dnever get burnt again! heh, once I went busking and some pompous git actually explained to his friend....."hah, that's not dangerous, I bet she's using that special cold fire, you know, like magicians use on tv".

Posted:Just coz I'm working fulltime now (i know, disgraceful isn't it) does that mean I'm not studying philosophy in my spare time...My favourite is Hobbes, as in Calvin and Hobbes, and the others all make me fall asleep. I'm stockpiling lots of Philo' to read to my kids before bed

If they were fair, then one of us guys would have one at least one section...(glances at his fiance over his shoulder) I say they are the unfairer sex, they are good at everything, look great, are much more intelligent and are the answer to all of the problems in this "man's world"------------------Charles (INFERNO)newdolbel@hotmail.comhttp://juggling.co.nz

Posted:**Turns twords pozee and frowns**What the hell... how the... this can't be. Beaten by girls. I'm glad I didn't enter,lol, I can always say I didn't win cause I didn't enter. Next comp, can we please have a glowstick and a fire comp, if only for a pen. For those of you who don't have one, it's worth the 2 bucks. I know I"m not the only one who sleeps with one.

Its about talent, not make up or costumes.
