Posted:I was doing fire-staff on New Years Eve on my friend's land in Essex; don't know what temperature it was but it was f***in' freezing 'cause the paraffin was freezing as soon as I dipped the ends and I was having to thaw them over the fire before they'd light.

Posted:You're not alone, I spin while I'm on the phone and I completely forget I'm on the phone... that gets people pissed =/ Then when the ball hits the phone and it knocks it off reception I have to run inside and put it back in the cradel before they call.First thing they ask when I pick up the phone is "Spinning again?" >_<My room's big enough to practice the foward weave and the backwards weave with barely hitting my dresser, and laundry basket on the other side of the room. I tried a 180 degree turn but I knocked over the pencil sharpener on my desk and had a fun time dragging out the vaccume cleaner.Keep at it. lol you're not alone

Posted:yes, I've gone outside my house at 2am, last night actually, someone directed me to this site, and i was able to see a move in slow motion for the first time, so i ran outside in only a sweater, jeans and slippers for a quick try.The nextdoor neighbors have a brandnew baby, which was up all night squealing, so apparently i had an audience of its parents watching me practice. They apparently enjoyed my hitting myself in the head repeatedly, but not my yelling of expletives.so yes, i understand, poisessivness is overtaking me. Everytime i hear a song, a routine starts in my head, and won't stop. and 2inch poi...i'm intrigued...

...that's not flying, it's falling, with style...

Posted:the mini poi were made of yo yo strings knotted through holes in dice - and maybe their about three inches, but it keeps me entertained while sitting on my arse - i was downloading "the return of motion sickness"AND I FOUND THE ABSOLUTE BEST TRACKS EVER TO SPIN TO FOR HIGH ENERGY! okay, i'm bored and this is my only perk while on the computer - finding music to spin to1. House me teenage rave by green jelly (a bit explicit, but funny)2. the powerpuff girl remix of manson's 19963. MANSON DOING "SPIN ME RIGHT ROUND!!!!!!!"ps - don't drink redbull with vodka - there is a chemical reaction to alcohol with red bull that is dangerous - heard it briefly while watching TV - and down in RI we have something i have yet to try - a new shot called "hot sex" ... ;-)------------------~ Tiger, Tiger, burning bright... ~

Posted:Fortunately, Go Fast is *not* Redbull, otherwise I wouldn't drink it at all. Redbull is vile, and tastes much like I would imagine camel piss does.I haven't heard anyone speak of Green Jello in quite some years I'd almost forgotten they'd ever existed.For some other high energy spinnig music try some Lard, one of the great forgotten industrial bands. Fork boy is one of my faves by them. Or try some AFI if you like going really fast, like Fall children or some such song.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.

Haven't heard of green jello in forever!! *squeek*I dislike Red Bull. Its like cough syrup.. I also dislike vodka.. so I think Im safe... for the most part... seeing how 1/2 the can of Go Fast is a warning... but compared to the metabolife drink where the whole can is a warning Im playing it safe :lol

Posted:I don't know about the whole adverse chemical reactions stuff (never one to read the warning labels), but from my experience, the Red Bull and vodka thing is quite a ride! The uppers in the Red Bull (Guarana & Ephedrine I think) give you a body buzz and make you all tingly, while the alcohol loosens you up and lowers your inhibitions. The experience as a whole is a LOT like rolling i.e. taking XTC. If anyone has ever wanted to roll, but was unsure about how it would make them feel, try this first. It will also prepare you for spending that much freking money just to get a buzz. (Damn things are expensive!)
Non-Https Image Link
As a side note- remember the adage-"don't mix uppers and downers." Just trying to give the information to those who are curious. If you don't trust me, then don't try it. But if you do, still be careful. Depending on your body weight, you probably don't want to drink more than 5 or 6 of these in a night. Much more than that and the stimulants start to screw you up inside. I have had friends who have OD'd and gotten really sick from ephedrine before. Not pretty. All in all it isn't going to hurt you at all unless you drink A LOT of it! So cheers!

Posted:The only reason they are called "Green Jelly" now is because of a lawsuit from the makers of Jello for misuse of a copyrighted name. They will always be Green Jello to me and I outright refuse to call them by any other name.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.
