Posted:OH brother, I have to announce that having seen the competition, I will not be entering the:
Annual Biggerest Nerd in the World of Poi Competiotion 2003
Having easily claimed this title in 2002 with "Poi weave state transition diagrams"
which graphically depicted weaves all the way up to X beats and were used to develop the goofy weave sub-family. (Surely the most ugly pointless and nerdy family in the whole of poi.) I reckoned I was onto a winner this year with post modernism in poi.
but I hadn't reckoned on the might of the german entry. Professor Klaus
even more nerdy than NYC
check out this mans diagrams, the link on the middle of the page....I really don't understand this.
this is the front page of the site look at twirling to music and workshops
Yep I've looked at his book and after 5 years of poi (and holding the biggest nerd in poi title for the last 3 ), I still don't understand it.
and so this years title for biggest nerd in poi will surely go to prof Klaus Scheuermann.
The good news is that he is going to be at the EJC and doing a workshop. Where, unless a stiff challenge can be mounted by the likes of NYC or Dr coleman, I shall be handing the trophy over to Klaus.
tell you what though writing poi in fire for the front page is a brilliant idea. cool.
