Posted:This would be the second time I've seen fire Poi in real life, and for the second time I was blown away by it. Stuff like that is why I keep spinning.

I got to talk to Loki too. he asked if I went to home of poi.

The rope torch and contact fire were really cool too.

Posted:yo-ho! Its me, otherwise known as Phobos..i cnat get into my other account so i had to make this one. Im also up for the whole 'waterfront spin thingy' if thats going to be put together. Ash Circle has really inspired Dawn, Rosie and I to be the best (and safest!) we can be so I think i public show-off with other spinners is in order...

Speaking of ash circle, I had no idea that so many people were influenced by those cool-cats. Im not surprised, but still.....thats wicked!
I guess thats all i gotsta say. Im off to print off some new moves to learn. Gotta bone up on my skills!
See ya!


man, it makes you wanna shoot them in the face and beat them with baseball bats, doesnt it?

Posted:I've got two REALLY awesome pictures of Ivan fire breathing! I didn't even know I could take such a good picture O.o I don't have extended film though so the pictures of Loki/Rick are not that good (stuuupid camera).

Me and Blaze/Jade are going downtown again on Tuseday (I think)... Everyone is invited! Unless of course the weather realizes that its been the same for four days straight ^^;

Posted:sooooo we came in third for the peoples choice awards ( still better than a kick in the head )

that means we wont be around next halifax buskerfest ah well such is life

you guys don't know how happy i am to see that you all have the proper safety gear and whatnot

showing responsibility is a good way to become credible in the eyes of the majority

( plus if the local fire community behaves we'll never have a problem performing in halifax )


thats right i look like an albino ape that has had a bad day.. go ahead say something stupid... i dare ya !

Posted:What do you mean you're not coming back?! *sighs* That means you have to come out to perform in Calgary during the Stampede, 'kay? 'Else I'll have to move to Halifax... Which, in itself, isn't such a bad prospect, seeing as there's so many spinners out there... Anyway, thought I'd express my regrets that you only came in third- I was TOTALLY looking forward to flying back to Halifax for Buskerfest. Which I still might do. But will be saddened by your un-presence.

... right.


"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Posted:About the Amber question, we might do a street show sometime when Amber's down to visit, but as far as Amber rejoining the troupe, it looks doubtful. Still, she says she misses performing. I doubt she's found her lifelong calling just yet (Environment Canada not quite fulfilling her all the way).

Ash Circle's next thing will be about 1:45pm at Parade Square for Breakfast Television (airing on Saturday), and then Saturday night, probably parade square.

floo.

Posted:Yeah, it's airing on Monday. Oops.

This is a callout to all you cats. We're doing a show or two on Parade Square Saturday night (Oct. 4), probably our last chance to do street before it gets too cold and we get too busy with the Vaudeville shows and Singapore and whatnot. Afterward, everyone could gather and have a spin. Could be fun.

Anyone with drums, it would be great to have them there. I'd love to do some spinning to live drums again.

Poi circle anyone? Continuous fire, one circle of people, live drums. Tell me what you think.

Um... tomorrow... hmm... Nooo! I think I may be babysitting.... I'll see what I can do T.T Especially since I HATE babysitting with a passion BEYONG belief... Noooo!

If I do get to go... I don't have any drums, sorry! But now I want to go SOOOO bad!

*bawls*

Oh, and Rick, have you checked out the Hallowe'en in Halifax string? It'd be awesome if you guys wanted to join, if it gets off the ground. We still don't know where it's gonna be, unfortuantely.

Posted:Aww, i'd love to have us all spinning, uno problemo however. My kevlar didn't come in, so i am without fire wicks. And another problem... theres a shortage of Smokeless Odorless Lamp Oil in HRM. I'll try my luck tomorrow morning though. And perhaps if i get a chance i'll make a set of Towel Wicks... if i can figure out how.

Posted:ok, so now i am without an old towel, and was going to use a coat hanger due to lack of good wire/mesh. So everything is working against me... i'll be there with my camera though... perhaps someone has an extra pair of wicks they could lend me :puppy eyed look: :pout:

Posted:Hey, DD, I have some wire... *cough* Actually its Bobo's wire that she has wanted back for the last while... oops... you didn't see that! But anyways, you could probably borrow some of it when your kevlar shows up. Til then, if I show up tomorrow then you could borrow my poi when I'm not spinning. As for lamp oil... there is no way to not sound like a wad for saying this... try WalMart ^^ Thats where Blaze and I get ours... though some don't like it because its a bit more smokey then others *shrugs* I'm used to it and when I'm spinning I don't notice much anyways.

Ok, I don't know about drums Loki but I could attempt to drum on some trash cans for you! ... but I would suggest a pair of ear plugs as I've never tried drumming in my life ^^
By the by, what time would you be doing your preformances on saturday night(aka tomorrow)?

Posted:Thanks Cerberus, but the wire was going to be to make a pair of towel wicks tonight. I'm almost completely ready for when my kevlar comes in.
I went out and bought enough copper pipe to make 2 small wicks and 2 double wicks. I've got 6feet of kevlar coming in, 1ft for each cylinder, and i'm going to do the Towel core thing, and i've got some Kevlar Thread coming in aswell, i'm going to experiment with that a little. But yes, i get off work tomorrow at 5, i've got a little work i've got to do in the morning aswell, and i'll drop into a few stores to check for fuel. After work i'll pick up my bag from home and head over to parade square. Though i'd love to know the time it starts.

Posted:I'M SO THERE! I've been itching for a good spin lately and having everyone there would be spectacular! DarkDevil, I'm sure you could use the wicks of mine you used last time since I can't use two sets at once.
Also, my sister and I have been to many hysterix circles and stuff like that so I'm sure I could scratch up a hand drum or two, though don't expect any expertise...
