It looks like steel wool poi.


Solitude sometimes speaks to you, and you should listen.

Posted:I giggled at the fact that this was moved from "social" to "events"... wouldn't everything be an 'event' than? I don't see this as an advertisement of an event for all of us to go and attend as much as a social or political discussion of the allowing of such a festival by the ruling government.

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

Posted:Thanks for that NYC, I could have sworn it wasn't in here when I posted!! And I completely agree....when talking about past events and historical moments like this it should be kept in social. It's not an advert or a 'please come to' thing at all



But hell....who are we to reason why...it's just for us to spin our poi......
