Why the hell is philosphy reserved only for poi?



"Poi is life"...... where the hell is staff in that equation? tongue



Poi gets all the "There is no move" BS... what do we get? Nowt.



S'not fair. I want to be able to terrify newbies with such confusing words of wisdom, but yet there doesn't seem to be any spiritual side to staff... Lame!



Is it because staffers are, by default, meat heads? Is it beacuse philosophy is reserved only for the wussier side of object manipulation?



Should I just shut the hell up before I get lynched?

Reading this thread reminds me of a zen proverb...

novice rushes up to staff jedi;

"Master, I finally understand. There is no staff! "

!!! BONK !!!

"So how do you explain the lump on your head? "

biggrin



What he said biggrin

*hits firetom on the head with a staff*

tongue

Posted:"How good are you at staff?" Someone asked me.

"How good?" said I.

"Yes", said the boy, "Which level?"

I replied to him, "Level, eh? Well, I suppose I'd be level 1."

"Just starting?"

And then I looked him in the eyes, and I knew what it was to be a spinner. Quietly I spoke to him then. "Yes. Just starting, every day, just starting."

(Points to the person who recognises the exchange!)


Spin, bounce, be one with the world, because it is yours to enjoy...

Posted:My philosophy of staff is to think of them like a woman...at first you keep them at arms length, she could be dangerous remember. Then as the atmosphere heats up, she starts to tease you, running her handle across your wrist then upto you neck. Soon (If you're lucky) she starts to move majestically around your body with no nook or cranny un-explored.
Sometimes you're blessed with many at once...the sexy danger factor increases and of course you ubercoolness rating goes up. But juggling them can be difficult (Just remember, two should never cross paths). But most of the time, the heat dies down after a while or you just drop her one day. She hits you a little too hard in the face maybe, and you're not sure if you want to carry on. You CAN get the better of her in the end...you just have to keep on trying. And if you persist she'll one day be your biatch forever... ubblove HEHE

Posted:I think this may be the key...I went and had a spin just after writing this, and I don't know what happened. Everything clicked...Angel Rolls, Jesus', lots of weird shoulder rolly stuff. Even silly little things like, burn-off to balance on the foot into static steve...Loving it...shame it's 1am and I've got to try and get to sleep for work tomorrow...Just not enough spinning hours in the day

Posted:So, what have we proved, other than staffers are more poets than philosophers?

Maybe that's it, maybe that's the revelation. It certainly ties this thread to Ben's thread.

Poi is about philosophy, whereas staff is about poetry.

I'm happy with that.

Same applies to rollerskating, window shopping and figure skating.

Posted:Haikus eh? Sweet...

* Ouch series *
Effortlessly one,
united in each contact,
until staff meets head.

Faster, and faster!
Staff slams into the bad place,
I weep bitterly.

* Ok, I'll really try series *
Powerful circles,
splitting night into patterns,
moonlight drowns in fire.

Eyes are not needed,
body flows into the fire,
burning away sense.

There ones was a man from Nantucket...
who carried around Parafin in a bucket,
teenagers pointed and laughed at his passing,
and being quite fed up with harrasing,
he beat them with a stick.
Oh and it was on fire.

my thoughts on staff Vs. poi philosophy:
when spinnig poi, jiggle your hips and dance like a girl
when spinning staff stamp your feet and jump around
