Posted:Hope no-one minds me making a new topic - couldn't find anything that instantly filled the niche of what I'm about to ask .... wink

In my LJ I've posted that I've been touch with my old mate and that I've started spinning Poi. In some posts for the last week I've mentioned I'm gonna practice and general stuff like that.

A friend on LJ who hasn't really had much love for me lately has now posted a reply which has made me think;

Their comment being, basically;

"Poi is for people who go to dance clubs not fuvking rovk clubs jason, make yourself more annying why dont u?"

Now, like I say, due to my personal life and peoples views on stuff I'm not particularly liked by this person at the moment.

Now, I've been to my fair share of dance clubs. In fact, I have about 5/6 years on top of this person (Been clubbing, mostly Rock, for 13 years now). although, like I say, it's mostly rock/metal.

So - peoples views:

Can a 6'3", Pantera/Hatebreed/White Zombie loving rocker be accepted as a spinner ? I like my DnB, Dance, Rave, Jungle, Dance, Trance, Techno, Electro etc as much as most other clubbers though, music is my life.

Please, don't post anything about being narrow minded or owt, that's not what this is about, but just got me thinking. biggrin

Posted:Actually saw a girl in the local rock club in Derby spinning glow-poi on Saturday. Very good, was trying to watch to learn the moves by-proxy or at least figure out vaguely how she did them!

Good mix of choons spun too aswell, some Tool (Which actually I'm beginning to appreciate a bit more as I'm listening to them for spinning possibilities a bit now!), Nirvana (IIRC) and I think she was spinning to Pantera "Cowboys from Hell" too ... which was good, as it's pretty much my fave choon of the past few years !

if you are close to derby get down to the Firstfloor club, normally quite a few of us spinners down there, best Rock/metal club in Derby, you should see it on the student night most of the Uni Circus Soc are there!!



Yeah dude, I've been going to the 1st Floor Club for MANY years now ... I vaguely recall it being called the Rock House when I first started going, then Future, then Supanova .... in all I've on-n-off been going there for about 13 years !

Only very rarely see spinners there. Maybe very occasionally - every few months or so ?

I was going up on Tuesday for the Bombshell student nights quite a bit, didn't see anyone spinning then!

Meep - have to keep a look out for ya !



well i should be there this tuesday and then this coming weekend for the new room opening


I am a sig virus place me in you sig so that i can continue to replicate

Posted:I found MCR about the same time I did Anberlin after hearing about their first album in the states (I'm on a couple of US rock forums where I try to listen to as much new stuff as possible!)

Not so keen on the new one, but all their stuffs good. Just wondering which songs to spin too ... the faster beatier ones I think. "I'm not OK" and "Thank you for the venom"

PLAY ? Just waiting to be able to buy my ticket! Myspace ... I'm a total myspace-ho, anyone can add me! Same with MSN!!!!!

Surely there must such at thing as Bling Poi or Poiburry ?

Well slap my sports-wear clad behind and call me Xander Ronaldo Smiff if there isn't. To console myself I think I'll go buy another sovereign ring from Argos.

Actually, drunken Stella Poi could be quite interesting to watch!

Love the review of this on Amazon..

"""Perfect" is a word often used in reviews, usually without justification. But there's an argument for its use when describing Slaughter of the Soul, the final album by Gothenburg's At The Gates, originally released in 1995."""

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Slaughter-Soul-Remastered-At-Gates/dp/B000068QT3

biggrin



Yeah, that's pretty spot on. That album has soooo much energy...

I also love Chaos AD by Sepultura, early In Flames (Whoracle up until Clayman, anything after that sucks), and anything by Amorphis. And Strapping Young Lad. In fact, pretty much any Devin Townsend smile

And going out buying tampons ? Done it before, I'll do it again! I'm the brazen type who'll walk it and browse the available selection and ask people nearby which is most comfy!

Very little shocks me like that!

But hormones do scare me.

Woman + Hormones + Thrash Metal + Poi = very deadly mosh piy me thinks.
