Posted:Yeah, I like the same background song thing. That would solve the time problem and compare to see who matches up to what. But what if you have two people that don't like to spin to similar music? Like if I were to be forced to do it to Dubstep, I would not do well at all, I hear Dubstep and nothing somes out. It's just unspinnable to me. Should we just play that by ear?

The only luck is bad luck.

Posted:of coarse we should grin

these are not laws, they are ideas, suggestions to make this whole thing more FUN. each challenge can have its own set of rules agreed upon by the participants, and then shared when the video is posted, so every one else knows whats up when they watch it.

happy spinning

Unless Sister Eleven is a little nervous without her power play to fall back on... tongue2

*crosses fingers style, flair, and attitude can level the playing field*

A little nervous, yeah, actually tongue2. It's not too uncommon for me to start into one of the two contact moves I know, only to quickly go "wait, fire doesn't roll very well! Also it burns me!" and mess up trying to change my move. I expect this to happen more than a little with throws tongue2

Haha exactly! If she ditches the throws her problem should be solved... wink

How about this for an option Sister Eleven, we each do two videos but they count as one submission. One video will be classic monkey fists with no throws submitted by both of us, the second video you can do throws/contact until your heart is content against my torch poi so I can do catches and alternate moves as well. People will vote for whoever they liked better based on our overall submissions with an old school and new school video coming from us both. smile

What do you think? Or is this too complicated?

And nah, I'm not trying to talk my way into throws. The original terms are fine.

Posted:Unfortunately serious stuff effecting my life, living situation, and future have had a devastating blow which is common in military families to have transitions and paperwork screwed up. Until all of this mess is straightened out I cannot follow through because I just don't have it in me, all of my focus is on damage control.

When everything is sorted out and I have a lot more answers and fiscal stability after an appeals process, I'll be more than happy to start being back to my old self, it's just been snatched up for a little bit. frown

Posted:It's all good. I didn't get my video shot quite as I was hoping, but I can use the footage as my ~1yr video... I'm open to other challengers, and best wishes EoN.

I am also changing my medium of choice to glow/practice poi. Filming fire is just a hassle, since it's hard to drum up a cameraperson on the one night of the week I can do fire.

Posted:I'll bite. I've been waiting for another challenger, and what I've got on you in tech you might make up for in movement (srsly, I'm such a cruddy dancer). I'm opting for practice poi (for reasons mentioned above, fire is a pain in the ass), footage being from a continuous session (editing in title screens or credits is ok), 3-5 minutes. I'm open to suggestions for theme and such. Myself, I will probably be costumed for no apparent reason.

Posted:Poismylove: any kind of practice poi; I'll probably be using inner tube poi or contact poi. I don't want to set a specific song, but let's since we have a mutual love of Beats Antique, let's say our videos have to be to one of their songs--and not Beauty Beats, Roustabout, Dope Crunk, or Nesatavo; all other songs are fair game.

EoN: I'm up for a critical compare & contrast. Can't wait to see your vid!

ive been practicing putting lots of dancy footwork into my poi sessions lately so i can bring some sort of advantage to this thing smile
Ill go record tommorow probably if im in a good poi mood. my sound quality will probably be horrible though since i dont have editing software for my video camera, and i have to record the song on my phone and then play it back by setting the phone next to the video camera.

and cant wait to see both of your videos grin

Here it is. Don't think it's very good, and the encoding from putting in the text kind of crapped out the quality. Not to mention the song on the video doesn't really match the song I was spinning to; I just couldn't hear the original song in the video to find something that matched tongue2 It's what I got, though!

I had to outlaw those particular songs because they are DONE TO DEATH. tongue2 Beats Antique is huge with the spinners here, and those are the songs that end up on everyone's playlist. Me, I'm going to go for something off the new album...

I'll try and film some time this week or next, weather permitting. Hopefully my footwork is coming along okay. And hopefully I'm not sleep deprived when I shoot so I don't have godawful triquetras like I do in the video I shot for my challenge with EoN tongue2
