place to meet for 27th :- stone circle in the park behind the castle .... ?

There are a few poi spinners in cardiff that I know of - me and rossco from here and Non when she gets back here....

For places to spin and meet up :

Tuesdays at the Hawian on City Road from 8.30 onwards
It is an open mic night, 2 with a free buffet at 9pm ish and a chance to spin fire weather permitting... a few of us are there most weeks

Thursdays Juggling Club 2, 8pm till 10pm this has just moved to a new location in town... at Charles Street not quite sure on directions yet haven't been there myself yet but if people want to meet up before then that can be arranged...
It is just a practise space but it is always good to meet and share tricks. . .

so hope to see you all soon hug

We shall try and plan to be there 12ish then, I will probably only stay a few hours as I will have the sproggs with me, and I expect it will be absolutely freezing, if this week so far is anything to go by.

freezing?? great. well it's supposed to be -12 here and we had snow last night! although we're keeping a nice toasty warm 34C inside with the wood oven biggrin so I'm still going to freeze in Cardiff...

Maybe we can meet, slightly after 12... like 12.30 or even 1... I only plan to stay in the cold for a few hours too, despite blankets, chocolate and biscuits...

hey xorba, if the essay still isn't finished by next week, i can ramble some more on that topic if you like biggrin

its when artists such as gauguin and picasso got obssesive with so-called 'primitive' art. tribal art...etc. basically the whole idea was to find some kind of raw inner form of expression but in trying to recreate 'primitive' styles and techniques they took their western views with them and, in my opinion, made crap work. Gauguin moved to madagascar or somehwhere and tried to become a local. He referred to himself as a 'savage' which in itself proved that he viewed the inhabitants as savages, an extremely racist view, although at the time perhaps a fairly common view in western society. Basically it didn't work.
(n.b. the word 'primitive' is used only because it has always been. Really i suppose what we mean in this context is 'non-western' art. 'Primitive' suggests that it is undeveloped in some way, which is most certainly not the case)
