I did know the track, but I forgot it now smile

Posted:This was really cool. I watched wifeswap the other night and there was a whole herd of people doing poi and there was a guy with a fire staff. There was a good length segment on it. I liked some of the poi too. They were tailed and they were made of a dark material, but the cloth had iridescent threads so it sparkled in the lights. I couldnt say if there was actual fire poi. I think there was, but if you get a chance to see the episode with Bella the Wiccaan priestess and the blonde woman watch the first half. This is not the one where the larger woman freaks out and just flips.

But she was really happy to live with the rich girls family as she felt what it was like to have parents again... *sniff* She tried to teach the mum poi...

As well as the poi footage, the rest was an enjoyable show to watch. It's great that she found her father only a fortnight later smile

Posted:Ah!! I knew there was a thread about this somewhere!

I was watching TV (the USA channel) anyway they are having this contest about being a "character" because their slogan is Characters Welcome. And lo and behold what do I see?!

POI!!!

Yes, this woman was spinning poi, it made me so excited I just had to run and logon to post about it. lol

This is one girl's profile, I'm not sure if that's the one on the commercial or not. I looked up halfway into it and was watching the fire more than her. biggrin Sike I lie, this is her. You can go and watch the video of her and hear her interview (I guess it was an interview). I voted for her.

Posted:So Im watching survivor and this girl comes back from a reward challenge and its said that she is a fire dancer but TV says a lot of thingsand she has short staffs and poi. I could not tell if the first poi I saw her with was the blue fuzzy poi or post-burnt. But there she is spinning around. And later she is showing some of them how to dance with staff. At the end, she takes turns with staff and poi lit up. Ahhh, to be able to do a horizontal buzzsaw like that would be nice. Maybe they will show more of her and the poi and staff. It sort of sucks cause of how she gets portrayed, hippy and not in the neutral sense. So which one of you is she

Posted:I saw sic kitty's link with the girl, but she's not doing much, i was hoping for more moves.

I'm from greece and there's a singer from here that has this song "Party" and on the clip there are poi-spinners, juggling and fire-breathing. smile I was really happy to see it.

&You'll never guessed where i saw fire-poi... In a telemarketing commercial for the sauna belt!! There was this girl dressed in a hawain outfit and was doing the 3 beat. It was so weird...

Posted:my dad just showed me a survivor episode with that girl spinning poi. i don't know if it's the same one you saw faithinfire. i guess her team won some challenge and got a "luxury" item from home, so she got her poi. what i saw was actually pretty decent, she did some btb stuff and her skills were pretty good. i was just excited to see decent poi skills exposure on mainstream tv smile

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.
