Lots of useful threads about hyperloops\airwraps\knots\tangles\nexuseses\randy badgers.



Please post random rubbish in this thread to keep it bumped biggrin



Read These First



Airwraps and Hyperloops

A funky article by Dom, introducing and explaining the terms airwrap and hyperloop.

Includes this important observation:
Written by: "Dom"

"The word "hyperloop" was first used on this board by Glass in October 2002. Since then there has been constant debate about what a hyperloop actually is. Ultimately a hyperloop is part of the airwrap family of moves and it doesn't actually matter what it is or what it's called as long as you're having fun."






[Old link]

an excellent 'how-to' guide for the most basic tangling move from Professor Coleman. The thread that started me hitting my poi together on purpose.



[Old link]

This thread is basically what got all the techie people into Hyperloops and Isolations. Here you can verify that this stuff is all Glass fault spank

It's massive and has lots of interesting stuff (if you skim past the occasional bout of arguments/accusations)



Butterfly Threads



[Old link]

Dom & Dantana explain the whole tangly butterfly thingy



[Old link]

Dantana, Coleman, Poibox and Nix? explain the whole tangly butterfly thingy



[Old link]

includes MORE useful stuff about butterfly thingies from Dr Dantana. He knows his thingies he does



[Old link]

Starts off describing recoil-wrapping one-poi from a butterfly tangle. Goes into more general butterfly tangly advice.



Buzzsaw Threads



[Old link]

In fact its a tangled buzzsaw smile



[Old link]

OK thread, but not enormously informative or helpful.



[Old link]

advice on how to keep buzzsaw tangles going. Good stuff.



[Old link]

Oli explains stuff about adding and removing twists from tangly buzzsaws (with nice diagrams smile )



[Old link]

not particularly informative or helpful



Helpful Theoretical Type Threads



[Old link]

More than what it says in the title. Messed up tangly conversations.



[Old link]

i reckon this is a very useful thread for advancing your understanding of tangles in general.



[Old link]

The effects of rotating hands contrary to spin direction. Reducing the amount of time you spend untangled.



[Old link]

Horizontal tangly stuff and a bit of general chatter. Definitely worth checking out.



Wierd Moves n Stuff



[Old link]

Three awesome new tangly moves (with video) from the Reverend Rev



[Old link]

another great thread by le chat bleu with many funky ideas to play with



[Old link]

Good description of and advice about between the legs airwraps



[Old link]

(but... aren't all hyperloops atomic? confused)



[Old link]

Groovy idea from Tommy Nixford. Needs long poi.



[Old link]

Stuff about how to get lots of beats in airwraps



[Old link]

Stuff about how to get lots of beats in airwraps. again...



[Old link]

stuff about tangling poi then stalling them...



[Old link]

"...like some freaky astrojack/meteor mutant monster!"



[Old link]

Horizontal tangled throws from Dr Dantana



[Old link]

you can put bouncy balls in socks then go tangle tangle bounce bounce tangle bounce.

Thats about the size of it. Its a short thread smile



Other Useful Bits



[Old link]

General advice about learning. Very useful.



[Old link]

Argh! Terminology debate! Mummy, im scared...



[Old link]

sometimes hyperloops make you sad PART ONE! :sad:



[Old link]

sometimes hyperloops make you sad PART TWO! ubbcrying



Only included for the sake of completeness



[Old link]

Given it's useful sounding title, this thread is quite shockingly pointless ubblol



[Old link]

Some stuff about turning with hyperloops. Not enormously useful.



[Old link]

Some random stuff ball chain, 3 beat corkscrews, teabags and cone-shaped gravity



[Old link]

Mainly descends into terminology confusion frown



[Old link]

simple question? About hyperloops? ubblolubblolubblolubblol



[Old link]

oh god, dont mention fountains, youll only upset cole

Ah - I seem to have inadvertantly bitten the smitten kitten (not wearing mittens)

Best thing to do with sticky cows is throw them on the ceiling then wait as they fall on unsuspecting victims.

I wonder if you can UHN - Glean a Bad ger?

Mushashii: Can you help?

Simain: Like kings I tell you.

Wealesely: I think you should turn it green.

gleaning a badger you say?


this is the aftermath of capturing your randy badger, when the room is filled with smells of fresh randy badger sex and you need to burn some incense. Therefore you jump into the shower with your smell randy badger and glean(with soap) until you can glean no more...understand yet??

"Whyever not?" gasped Henry.
"Tash and Fi Henry! Mother says "Its just not practical" and thats why sillyness is wrong" replied Tabatha, incessantly.
Henry's face dropped. He was not playing hopscotch in the back garden with Wilfred, his small arab play-friend whom he had known for many, many years after Mother bought him at a dutch auction.
"TESTICLES TO YOU TABATHA!" he raged, shortly before turning his back on the tea-party-cum-Ann-Summers-Hen night.

Hi Cilla, Hi Tabatha!

Well, if was a vegetable I'd be an asparagus - I just love it when people dip me in melted butter with their fingers - and if you pick me, I promise that you won't find any soil on my roots

Well, If I were a round object, I'd be a golf ball, you could hit me with a stick, then run after me. What more do you want out of a relationship?
