Posted:Anyone ever experiment using poi with magic mushrooms? Tried it and found it was pretty good. Although it makes it much, much easier to get distracted it enhances dexterity and reflexes, and makes the visual effects very impressive. Any such experiences out there anyone would like to share?
btw I was using electroglows. dont have fire, but to be honest wouldnt have liked to try it underthe circumastances. call me a wuss...

Posted:are we allowed to talk about this stuff here...?

anyway niki, thats bloody slander that is!
(and are you sure btb was frommushrooms? )
k (one of my preferred spinny chemicals) is not dirty and drugs are not bad.
umkay, some of them are but not all of them.

now i would never recommend abusing chemicals but the evidence for poi enhancement is undoubtably there - i got my pendulums sorted while on the horses, isolations locked in after the leary liquid and i'd never be able to do hyperloops without the aid of all those cups of tea (assam preferably).

if anyone disagrees, come to glastonbury and explain it to me there

so thats how you are so amazing at spinning...and theres me thinking it was due to the 9 years of spinning when it is in fact that you are actually connected to your poi via some crazy mental link...you ask and they do!

Posted:Any mind expanding substances are fun to spin on. Well, I don't take man made drugs anymore except LSD unless they have been proven safe (Vitamins, anti-biotics if I REALLY need them). I don't even take headache or cold medicine anymore, haha. Mind expansion is completely different though, as there are religious / spiritual reasons for my use of them, and anyone who doubts those applications needs some reading time with Mr Leary (and application to see the truth in those words).

That said, all I wanna say is I learned how to do most of the basic moves with a staff during two nights of acid last summer, and half of what I am now capable of with poi on shrooms a few weeks ago. Dedicate yourself to learning one thing every time you take hallucinagens: your mind is far more creative and powerful and you'll find you can learn just about anything you put your mind to. My current list is: staff, poi, liquid dancing, (a little) break dancing, mastering one Kung Fu Token, and my favorite, the nature of enlightenment (That is a fun one if you get to it, try reading Leary's "Psychedelic Experience" and applying the knowledge therein on shrooms).

I found last time that I could count the beats and swing my poi with the music if I tried to absorb myself in it which ended up being one of my funnest spins ever... may have just been that the band was playing some predictable four beat song, but I seem to remember having to deal with a tyraid of other tempos too...

Posted:Im pretty sure this thread will be locked once a mod finds it but I have a suggestion.

What about makeing a passworded forum where people who are 19+ can discuss things such as this in private? The password would have to be handed out very sparingly to people who can be trusted but it would give a venue for this kind of discussion. It would also stop google from picking up those nasty words that will wind homeofpoi rated inappropriate for kiddies.

Now, spinning practice poi while on shrooms? Heck, that's how I learned to flow. I learn moves sober and I learn how to flow while tripping.

Ditto.

I spin/live clean these days.

I would be suprised if the mods lock this thread. HoP has always had drug conversations and they've never been locked down before. Although it was decided collectively ages ago that less random drug references on the site would be preferable. Newbies can search for a thread called 'altered states' and "Altered States' which discuss these issues in more depth.

I cannot understand the reference to K and spinning. As I remember on K it is hard to co-ordinate yourself into picking up your poi let alone spinning them.

Posted:Oddly enough k and spinning can work amazingly... as long as you don't take too much. But even then as long as you can stand (barely) you can spin... it's all muscle memory rather than conscious thought after all!

But k helps because it makes you hyper-aware of how your body is moving, and allows you to be break down your bodies movements nicely. For me it sure helped with buzzsaw isolations a while ago.

Agreed that cid is great for getting your flow down

Posted:thistle - horseydust does for me what dom said shrooms did for him.

k is a dissociative and as such means you gradually become 'disconnected' from your body with increasing dose.
when i spin on it, i find i have less awareness of my limbs and just sort of find myself floating there enjoying the show
i especially like using long uv poi that extend out of my peripheral vision - gives the impression of two thick orange lines sweeping around me (kind of sonar-like).

i will admit that k is the ball juggling antidote though

i'm gonna shut up now.

Posted:LSD???? Josh, I have mad respect for you. I tripped tuesday night, and I'm just today picking my chains back up. There's no way I could spin on acid! I dunno, call me a wuss.

Now WATCHING someone else spin on mushies or acid is a different story!! It's quite an amazing site on psychadelics.

I do reckon it's best to stick to the ones nature makes rather than are brewed up in labs though, specially as regards spinning.
Coleman, your invention sounds most interesting. what on earth could this so-called "cannabis" be?
