Posted:All right, I've borrowed this images from different theory I'm working on
right now, anyway here we go:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1] Snake (half/full)


Non-Https Image Link


This is a clean snake, or club swinging snake or elbow isolation
or what so ever. More, a bout snakes can be found here:

2] Snake Eye


Non-Https Image Link


"Simply sad, cat eye in snake motion."

Deeper, cat-eyes are clockwork technique, not a static figure.
I'm implementing this tech into another. Very hard, almost ...

Video wink

Again, I slightly grasp what you mean, but a video made with that funky video camera we bought you would be a great help... wink


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.

Posted:Also I've found that is better to distinguish between master
and Poi path, by different type of line, that would make dia-
grams more readable.

If you got a videocamera its time for explanations the visual way and not only theoretical one.

Please, some of us or at least me have only understood tiny fragments of all the stuff you write, but it sounds awesome. Doesnt matter if you or anyone cant do the stuff perfectly, I would just love to see some ideas explained visually, I want to be with you in the ideas and thoughts and not only sit next to you and not being able to understand a word of what you are saying, it sounds to good to miss out on tongue2

Posted:Snakes with poi?
Ouch....
Sounds like fun though. Will give it a whirl....

How you do a cat-eye like this I dunno. But then, not being able to do cat-eyes cleanly fails to help I think....

Posted:well.. your hand will be moving in the same direction as doing a normal snake, but the poi will be spinning in the opposite direction.. since your hand is doing a circle, poi in the opposite direction, this will make a cat eye, but your hand will be going in the path of a snake.. snake eyes smile

I concur! Video! spank

I mean damn, if you guys want motivation to buy me a video cam (which I don't have), I'll start making my posts waaaaayyyyy more cryptic... and for simulation videos, I'll start posting clips from the 'psychedelic screen saver' as poi moves! (seriously, if anyone wants to buy me a video cam, I'll make videos wink )

But seriously, I know when I'm in the deeply conceptual realm of poi, it's hard to get my head straight to even make a simulation sometimes! So, it will be a process for Richee to learn his workflow with the camera. Plus, what type of computer setup are you using Richee? I seem to remember you don't even have a mouse, which leads me to believe you may not be on a system optimized for convenient video editing. Have you run into any complications getting video off your camera and uploaded to say, youtube, where you can do simple editing and annotations online?

So Richee, is there anything we can do to help in your video endeavors? hug

Posted:I can't do them clear either, I think they are possible
with havier socks if you woun't smack your face
with crystal ball.

Ther are bit odd, I din't saw them in mirror, but they
are nice in theory, but that doesn't meen they will
be practicaly nice.

They tend to shift to outside, that makes them looks
like wall plane unit circle ,but they are not that
simple, cause you need to insert them into snake.

but snake is hard itself,
