Posted:I would like to ask everyone out there....Do you have any weird or unsual (to popular belief) habits that are a result of your twirling or spinning hobby?For instance..I carry my poi with my everywhere I go. Imagine a young computer geek, carrying a laptop bag around, with a set of bag poi in them...pulling them out at every opportunity to get a few more minutes of practice in. =) Fortunately for me..I can just open my laptop up and put some of my favorite tunes. (Aren't Mp3's great?!) I'm big on music, and really "feeling" the music. So I'm confident with enough practice and listening to the music, I'll find my "groove" and have my own stype of dancing.Any other weird habits anyone? =P------------------ [PLUR]-=Crazy Raver Dude=-

Posted:I find myself spinning whenever i get uspet/madIt helps reduce stress for meSometimes i'll just pop them out, and start spinning in the living room, or outside at all hours of the day/night. sometimes i'll be walking around outside, on the way to class, and i'll think of a move, and go through the motions.I also have an addiction to Rave Liquid dancing. If you don't know what this is, I have a small video clip of it on my website:http://www.geocities.com/frodus17/misc/liquid.mpg

Posted:I do kinda the same thing, i find a pair of 4-inch glowsticks on string travel quite well in a pocket and combat boredom quite nicely...

Posted:I take my streamers with me pretty muchanywhere I go any more. It's a great wayto pass the time when you are waiting forsomeone or waiting in line, etc.I've had a particularly good time beforeconcerts where they've got good music playing, plenty of room on the dance floor, and nobody doing anything.I'm now looking to build a set of micro LEDpoi similar to Malcom's that I can carryarround in my pockets *all* the time.I've also noticed that I have poi dreams.Admit it, you know what I;m talking about,you've had them too. ;-) These are the oneswhere you go to bed after spinning for awhile and you start dreaming poi movesand transitions.Finally, I must admit I do have an addictionto fire. If I go more than a week withoutlighting up I start jonesin' hard. Andwhen I really get in a groove -- the rightspace, the right music, the right ppl, theright mood -- it is just downright hard tostop.-p.
