It's out! It's done! It's on homeofpoi.com!!!

Yes, I've gone and produced a DVD: The Scales of Poi! A distilation of everything I know about poi. It's loveable. It's funny. It's... well, I can only say so much, because I made it, so you need to order it (yes, YOU) so you can say how great it is, and people will listen to you.

My God, it was a lot of work. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Other people would be more sensible and make a DVD in a sensible way. Me? No. I have to have three camera angles. I have to put myself in a position to turn 24 hours of footage into a 90 minute DVD.

And now it's done! Did I say that already?

Are you excited? I am. Can you tell that I'm excited?

I don't know whether I'm itching to make another one, so I can do it the easy way, rather than the do-everything-the-hard-way way.

Oh, wait, I'm itching to get back to practice. Working on the computer is most definitely different than practicing. I'll just... Oh, shoot. That's right, I'm homeless and I owe the bank money. Should I have listened to my mother? Of course not! I'd be a terrible stripper.

Much love to all of you ubblove

Posted:Trailor coming soon. I'm just waiting to finish the new playpoi.com. The trailer is more of an art-video rather than an adavanced-tricks-video. You'll see what I mean soon ;P



I've actually been sitting on a bunch of cool stuff, new videos and photos and all... just waiting to finish the website. I've got some teaser "lessons" as well as the trailer.



And what's with this "I'll order as soon as..." stuff? ubbloco



Ok, I'll get off the computer now. :P

Heeheeehee... Let's see... how many DVDs will I have to sell before worrying about forgetting the little people... doot-dee-do... (clickity-click-click)...



Oh.



Well, no need to worry about that, then, is there?



It's a good thing I'm rich in love ubbrollsmile

Which is good. It means I won't have to resort to tactics like subliminorderscalesofpoidvdtodayal messaging. I would
hate to stoop to that kind of unethigirlsshouldkissmecal marketing.
