A kiss blown is a kiss wasted, the only kind of kiss is a kiss tasted.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Posted:the shaolin monks are awsome, though they are kinda being exploited, did anyone see an add for the movie Shaolin Soccer?, sad that, its interesting that he was doing poi, since i know they do rope dart and all, i think it would be awsome to create a sort of shaolin nuns sort of thing, you know, shaolin for the girls(head shaving optional) anybody with me?, come to think of it i guess that would be exploiting them too, >>>>luv

if you think that our kiss was all in the lips, come on you got it all wrong man, and if you think that our dance was all in the hips then, oh well, do the twist -The White Stripes

Posted:I went to see Van Helsing last night and guess what?.....Theres poi in it! Does anyone know of any vampires that spin regularly? in fact not just spin but do trapeze and ribbons as well.
Now that ive seen at least 8 people spinning in a hollywood blockbuster, does this mean that poi is mainstream? or does it just make vampire films even cooler? weavesmiley

Poor Little Rich Girls

Julia Cunningham and Suzy Money

22:00 - 22:30 Thursday, 9 March

A spoilt girl who lives in a large country house swaps lives with a hippie activist, who works in a charity shop to pay the rent. She shocks her flatmates by admitting she approves of hunting, and attempts to help them make money by organising a busking session. Meanwhile, her counterpart experiences a polo match, a night at a London club and a posh dinner party. Continues after the news
