Posted:Haven't really been spinning pio that much in the last 6 months, and i haven't been following this forum much. (I've spent my time learning 2 diablo which is fially coming together, linking a few nice suns together, suicide, just getting forwards fan, spinklers coming on and nailed the vortex a few times)

Anyhoo, i was just wondering if i'd missed out on any fundamentally new stuff. The last thing that i remember being fundamentally new to me was all the inside, inverted, variations of butterflies and weaves. COs it opened up possibilities i'd never explored. But that was about a year ago i think.

I'm guessing a certain group of bristol folk have been advancing in the direction of >>> plane changing tangles // propellors // contact // mind games?

Really just looking for something that i can get my teeth into. Get back into me poi.

Posted:spherc -- both. umm. i checked last night and split time is definitely easier, even though i didn't think it would be when i started learning these. if i'm doing split time, i turn into the tangle as it tangles on the leading side... it untangles, retangles in the other direction, then i turn again. same time, i have to decide to tangle either on top or on bottom a half beat before the turn, and then decide whether to turn right or left with it, so it's actually a lot harder for me to do clean, even though i learned it first (story of my life). split time might have a trailing side tangle where you turn away from it, but if it does i haven't learned to untangle it. anyone know about those? so yeah, the exact move i was talking about is the:
"4 beat split time butterfly outside tangle weave". this is also why i'm against shortened poi move names. lol. it's hard enough to not be vague with deeply technical terms already!

Posted:I like Mr Chutney's long arm, stalled pendulum flowers.

Me, 2Bags and Frodo were coming up with a lot of post-modernistic poi moves this Sunday...
Some awesome stuff there, had to be seen to be believed.
"Fakes" were a true classic...

Posted:"fakes" - they're mine they are. soon to be appearing on a video smile.

puresock and i have also been working on a new type of poi matrix which is quite cutting edge. might try and persuade him to put it on a video when he can get it slightly smoother.

favourite trick from sunday though was durbs demonstrating "foot isolations". truly beautiful and mesmorising ubbrollsmile.

I'll get to work on that but I also have to make the long awaited force push video. I might just stick it all together into one. But, of course, I am missing one important thing: a video camera.

Posted:mmm, the return of post-modernist poi... ubblove

bovril monkey and ucof's 'gilligan flowers' were truly a sight to behold.

and i found out that doing antispin beats when moving pendula through point isolations makes for a nice braintwister.

been having a go at andy's wrapped spirals too -
trying to do those in flowers really hurts my head so i gave up smile
