Posted:Someone resently emailed me about Moonfest, concerning the smelliness of the fire twirling fumes... helth issues ect. Suggesting that I have too nights for moonfest, one for just the "professionals" and another for all the others... she says it can't be healthy to be breathing in such a consentrated amount of fumes all at once....

But imagine that! "no sorry tonight is just for the professional twirlers... no fun... you're not aloud to just injoy yourself tonight, didn't you know this is just for professionals to put on a show for unappreciative people!" It's larghable!!!

I love Moon Fest, and it's the fact that everyone feels comfortable ennough to just get up and play that makes it so beautiful! and beginner twirlers have to start somewhere... and where better than a friendly, fire LOVING environment like Moon Fest The magority of people that comment on moonfest LOVE the fact that there are SO MANY twirlers!

GRRRRRRR!!! People like this make me mad

If she wants to see professionals do there shows she should go to their shows and not epect to be entertained at a warm friendly gathering...

It's the festive folkie people that make a good folk festival!

Well I've had my little rave...

What do you guys think???

Posted:one of the best things about twirling is the fuel smell. Weird person not understanding that simple pleasure

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:I understand her point of view. The fumes can be bad and really aren't good for you....HOWEVER, she is one isolated person (as far as you know) and while she is allowed to her opinion, if she doesn't like it, she doesn't need to go. Her expecting the group to seperate down like that shows her inability to realize a gathering such as this is about togetherness, peace and sharing.
It also seems to me she doesn't understand that these aren't necessarily performances either, but more of that coveted place where the professionals are able to just spin, no pressure, just peace.
As I said before. If she doesn't like it, she doesn't need to go.

Posted:Ye', like I do see her point... I don't like the fact that it's smelly and bad for your health... They are issues of my own... I'm serching for a fuel that's a little cleaner burning that is still safe to use...

What made me mad is her expectation of a "professional" show (it's never been promoted as such... always as a gathering... just people coming together to have fun and enjoy themselves... If she's looking for a provessional show she could go to one of them... she might have to pay to see it???... but that's why it's a profetional show... moonfest if for people to just play.... no pressure) and her seeming solution by getting rid of the "fledgelings" (her word not mine) It's not a place for exclusion... And it's not really focussed on the spectaters view, more on the envolvement of people... What makes it a great gathering is that people bring the festival with them... It's not a festival/gathering with out all those gorgeous beautiful people! It'd just be a whole heap of people sitting arround waiting for something to happen....

So, ye' Charles, I've kind of said abit about it here, but it's just a gathering of anyone and everyone who wants to come a long and have fun! Heaps of twirling, a groovin' drum circle, and loads of dancing! Every now and then we have a theme so some people dress-up... and sometimes put on a little bit of an impromptue improvized kind of performance with whoever is there and wants to be involved I set a little candle circle for people to dance, play, perform in if they feel like it.... It's all very casual and friendly. The vibe is just beautiful... I've made so many friends, and met so many gorgeous people.... (and quite a few of those gorgeous people are just starting out with twirling... so maybe that's why I take so much offence to her suggesting we seperate people acording to level of skill.... how about by means of who has fun at moonfest and who doesn't! all the wingers can have "another night" )

Geez! Didn't know I could get so worked up over one little complaint...

Posted:dude, do you like, watch movies with a post-it note pad next to you to write down all these quotes?? i bet your room is just plastered with post-it notes. like a jungle trying to find you to wake you up in the afternoon, need a machete to chop away the curtains of them just to get to the bed.
(cue the nature show host)"here we have the elusive bender, a nocturnal mammal, distant cousin to the kung fu spider monkey, but eats marmite and star wars cereal exclusively...it's courting habits are too bizarre for this god fearing host to even mention, let's just say that post-it notes are involved" your gonna have to sand the walls to get off all that dried post-it glue when you move next...
either that or you're strange. yup.
or you've got serious overkill in the photographic memory department. hyper medula oblongata, i think

Posted:I was the president of an old silly club at Uni 'FOUL: Friends of Unnatural Llamas' that was loosely based on an appreciation of Monty Python Society, then branched out into general zaniness. every tuesday we'd have days like 'wine and cleese' day or 'Spanish Inquisition day.' we had the worst record of all silly clubs on campus - the most nudity and drunkeness We had our own Llama chant (which sounded alot like the 'aussie aussie aussie' chant that was overdone @ Sydney olympics) and bible, the Foul Manifesto I've met soooo many lunatics from that stint
goddamn i miss it. I still attend the Irongut and Scav hunt every year - Very animal house!!

You can pretty much find a quote for any given situation

I'd lost my ball with a little green gem in it from my belly button ring (cost me heaps!) and I was on my hands and knees searching through the grass for it! and my brother yells out "There's some lovely filth down 'ere!!!"

Then like half and hour later I was dusting the matt... wacking it on the brick wall .... and of corse he starts making cat screeching noises.... Yup monty python sums up life in a nut shell!
