Posted:Well, after a stressful/fun/eventful/tiring/confusing/wonderful weekend at the Beautiful Days festival, I came away with one question. In particular, this is aimed at Glass, but others I'm sure will be able to contribute.
One of the stalls was the Mushy Pea Juggling stall, manned by a very nice guy called Steve. The second sentance he said to me was (and I quote) "I invented contact staff..." which is quite a claim. He said Glass (amidst others) had attended his workshops and that all things contact staffy basically came from him. Two questions: 1) Is this true? 2) Where does he hang out/spin?
Although not a great staff spinner myself, I have to admit that he was freakin' awesome! I was very sceptical after such a bold claim but - damn it - he was VERY good. Also his CJ was very good, well, awesome (I asked if he was the SilverMan but he isn't...) and his club spinning was like nothing I'd ever seen before - wicked! I really must get myself a 4" ball soon.

Posted:woops, well that didn't go as badly as it might have done! thanks to all those who said nice things about me! i've written a little history in the introductions page. i hope that'll clear this up and not cause any more controversy oh by the way, that link to poipoi won't help anyone find me.

not that it's necessary any more since the quote was from a fair while ago and since you've found mushy steve, but i'm the steve brown of whom you referred to, and i'm almost certain that i haven't invented contact staff. however, i'm not ruling out doing so in the future. i am follically well, but have no idea who you are spanner. have we met?
