Posted:that 14 meg video of a guy named sergey... in http://www.houseofrave.com/videos
....watch it =)I mean... for your own good, what's my point? besides for getting a laugh...(even the camera guy was laughin) is to get you to know that even if you know all the tricks you arent a pro... I mean, I dunno, i can't say he sucks cause he does a 2 tricks that I cant do(not the BTB) but i mean, watching the video, i realize that when you poi is only for dancing, like an expression, not just doing the moves emotionless, dunno, doing poi is dancing for others, not for you... just my thoughs------------------[- y.a.s.h.i.r.o. -]

Posted:i don't know...from the way he was spinning, my impression was that he's a rave-only spinner, and filming a high-speed practice at that. you could hear the glowsticks whack the floor (or other object) only a few times, and he was pretty fluid when lengthening and shortening the cord/rope/chain/whatever he was using. imagine this in a darkened rave with blacklight all around, two bright spinning objects and the silhouette of a person in the middle...i thought he was pretty decent for indoor glowstick. also, indoors they don't see your face NEARLY as much as with fire, so he can focus on the lightshow without worry. the lengthening and shortening of the cords caught my attention above all...for glowstick on thin rope, this would be a great start, allowing you to establish your floor space, catch attention, and thus leading to being able to safely expand your working area. (people near would notice you expanding, and [hopefully] move back to compensate. just my thoughts, though.

Posted:I reckon the 5.2 MB vid "GlowstickDermonstration" is much better. The one with the ultra high intensity orange sticks. I know he makes more mistakes but he's far less sterile and is obviously having a good time.

---------------------With a bit of luck, his life was ruined; always thinking that just behind some narrow door, in his favourite bars, men in red woolen suits are getting incredible kicks from things he'll never know.

Posted:everyone starts somewhere and grows.give this person some time...he looks like he's on his way to being a pretty decent spinner.besides...if i was still in hard learning, i would be more concerned with hitting myself than how fluid and expressive my movements were...wouldn't you?------------------"life begins between the night and the light."

Posted:Jangla....that 5 megs video that you watched, I d/led it in june 12 but in 30 megs sizeand that video is the reason why I began to practice poi(and that's why i'm talking a lot about body movements and such and a damn criticer) I wasn't interested at poi before because it wasn't cool, but the way he did it is very cool, although he did a few things, he's quite a show to watch, right Jangle? "following the music"Anyways, for those who are learning poi right now and want to have a good time in your learning process download the 5.3 file as Jangla said[This message has been edited by yashiro (edited 11 December 2001).]
