Posted:Ok so i am asking this in the loosest possible term but my general idea is this.



Over the next year, if the last is anything to go buy i will be bumping into alot of old friends and some new - all of which to me are awesome at what they do. However, some stand out, for what reason, be it style, character or just because i like that person i dont know, but they do.



If im sat at a gathering watching many people play, there ae a few people that could get up for a spin and will draw my eye out of a huge group because of what they do. Im not saying there the best, im saying ther are unique to me. Im sure you all know what i mean.



Anyhow - to the point strugz, if i was to spend a very long time (yeh yeh) making a video of spinners that stand out, in the form of an arty / wokshoppy type thing, who would you recommend / like to see on it?



Personnally for me there are a few, but ill get the ball rolling:



Garthy & Ucof - unique style (when they doesnt realise there on camera, a joy to watch every time)



Simian - i stare at this dude spinning poi and cant work out what hes doing - its great smile



Ronan - smooth, uberclean, slow and controlled.



Sy - smooth, uber clean and fast.



Antti - love watching this guy, throws from everywhere, fast, clean and consistant.



As i said above this is not a whos best at all, but a who stands out in a crowd of firespinners to you and why smile



If you think this thread is gay, then your name is probably Meg wink



So, after play 2 is finished this is going to be a little project of my own for the coming year and i think it could be something great biggrin

I would pay to watch Stitch (from Lilo and) spin four staffs. And fire breath. In fact I'd pay to watch him knaw on stuff and just generally destroy things. biggrin



PFFT! Stitch can easy do AT LEAST Septuple Staff! and probably knaw on David his spinning partner devil

And I just DID pay to come see MCP, Chrono,Strugz, Irinus, TinyPixie, Neon just some festivities got in the way ubblol wink





And boy did you pay for it! Not sure if you got your money's worth I'd ask for a refund. Or at least get some store coupons... tongue

Posted:I wonder how many sticks stitch would need to actually juggle? 5 I guess, but then he would just swap the one in the air with any of the ones in his four hands. I think he should really start out at 7. 3 in the air shouldn't be a difficult thing for a brain used to manipulating four hands.

I think for him to be doing his equivalent of our 5 ball cascade, he'd need more sticks in the air, than his number of hands, so he'd have to do 9 sticks.

and something balanced on his head, for him to knaw on... biggrin

Posted:Well Stitch has 6 limbs (don't forget - his legs are VERY prehensile - like Jon Pete tongue) and a neck so that's 7 staves if done Chrono-style whilst doing a dead beetle...

I told you - David, doing mere doubles... biggrin



Plus he has a built-in stereo system... tongue

Posted:If we teach Lilo to contact juggle (best get them while they're young) she can CJ Stitch for a bit who will then do whatever the hell he wants with as many objects as he is capable of whilst she does the hula in the background (how unlike many videos on HOP tongue )
