Strange things happen- ros & oli.. Remember that was the clip I watched before I knew how to do a weave. Big inspiration.. and fluffster.. ubblove (but I bet everyone tells you that wink)

Yuta's clip would probably be the most recent inspiration.. clean, fluid, technically brilliant. Amazing stuff.

Erm... Yuta's ones are fairly badass. As in like, I Watch them, and I go "Oh Shee-it, thats badass." S'mental. Hmmm... Anti-spin flowers... ubblove

Oooh... and the Wrestling Vids that UCOF and Simian are putting up. They make me laugh. biggrin

Um Hard one..

Are we talking about favourite spinning in a video or favourite video making?
Because for video making - PyroWill's Isaac is amazing, 2bag's Falmouth 3 video is pretty cool too.

Or for inspirational spinning etc..

Dervishly Yers was the first poi video that made my jaw drop and is still a favourite.
Strange Things Happen by Oli & Ros. - I ubblove Watching Ros spin. Oli's not too bad either wink

(Rougie - thank you, I like my moo sheep too ubbangel )

Falmouth 3 - the 2Bags edition
Black n Blue (which I could watch all day, every day)
RaverGirl glowstringing (the stuff at the end and that track *swoon*)
Andy PoiBoxII (though not sure where I got it from - it's the uncut CoL one)
And (tho I feel very silly for saying this) I really like Strange Things still.

Ive downloaded and watched many of the vids on here and have rewatched many over and over. Dervishly yers is awesome but if i had to pick a favourite it'd have to be yutas, I watch that all the time and its a constant inspiration to me, every time I watch it I just wanna go spin and get better!

I personaly like Mint Sauce's "First manchester meet" video. That is the video the inspired me to start poi and staff.

The only reason i'm scared of little kid's is because I know in ten year's time they'll be mugging me.....

Pretty much anything I've seen from Yuta, FNF, Meenik... each filled with beautiful spinning.

treesandsparklies (Mot) is a gorgeous CJ vid..

Oli vids are always fun.

Favorite specific vids:

yuta.wmv (the first yuta vid post to the forum)
1nickwithfire.wmv (meenik)
dTVOD.avi (Ros n Oli - sending signals to spaceships)
treesnsparklies.wmv (Mot)

Mine is Maele... or summat like that. It has the song that is super old like "I put a nickle in the telephone and called my babys' number but i got bbbbbbbbbbr bbbbbbbbbbbbbr bbbbbr Busy line..."

Any idea what it's called? One of the first videos I'd seen. I loved it.
