Posted:I'm sure we've all done some crazy stuff in our reckless beginnings. I'm curious to see what all has been spun

Guess I'll start off:

and yes I wasn't completely sober when I did some of these.


Fuzzy dice (for practice)
Old boots- yes I did light them on fire
various fireworks- no one hurt, luckily
and the infamouse wicks with black powder

Very satisfing when they smack together, and keys go everywhere.


You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

Posted:Last weekend my friend Alice who I promise I'll try to get to join up here did a bit with handbag poi, and the second last show I did I tied my sockpoi to the ends of my scarfe to make a meteor type thing that I pulled through my neck (magic trick) before starting to spin and getting tangled up. I'm slightly proud of myself for recovering from that. wink

I'm weird. Just work through that and we'll all be fine.

Posted:Just possibly. :P

Tis an impressive list actually.

Green bag for groceries single poi I did yesterday, and I tried to do staff earlier with a poster mailing tube. Apparently there's a reason staves only get made so thick. wink

Posted:Only slightly off topic (but I can't find a strangest staff you've spun thread).
I spun a bodybar at a fitness centre once, steel bar with funky foam padding, weighs about 10kg.
Excellent for building wrist and arm strength but I got some really strange looks.

Posted:Which is always fun. wink
I was juggling two corks and I think a tub of makeup or summat last night, and I've got some sink plungers to juggle at the moment, which much random fun was had with at my halfbirthday thingy. Two of them have apparently been given to me after the guy who bought em forgot to take them home a good few towns away (a phonecall to his dad's given me that information, rather than me deciding I'll just have them).
