Posted:Last Night Cerberus and I were doing poi on the waterfront of Halifax and there must have been 10-20 people taking our pictures and we found out that the Daily News was there, and they got pictures and asked us a few questions! We were on the front page, I couldn't believe it!!! WE were so happy!! Plus the fact that this was our first public performance so, all in all I'd say it was an amazing experience and we are doing it again tomorrow night! Cheers!

Posted:congrats! i was in a simalar situation once. and afteri explain you might undrstand why i am happiest for you. i was spinning at a concert one night (unauthorized of course). i liked the band and the music so much i just had to. a photographer saw me and started setting up his camera. i told him to hurry i was almost out and sure enough befor he got one click off i was out. i asked him a few questions and he asked me a few and it ended with both of us appoligizing to each other for what me missed out on. so again congrats to you.

we could live beside the ocean leave the fire behind
swim out past the breakers watch the world die

Posted:We saw the fire poi shot on the cover. Nice job!

Actually, at first glance, I thought it was me. Then I was like, Wait a minute... we've been in Ontario and Quebec for two weeks...

It's a great shot. What move is that? Bicycle?

Cheers,

Posted:Alright, um... yea, school is annoying and makes us go in earlier then we'd like. Blaze and I are going down again on friday (aka tomorrow... but only if you read this post today O.o figure that one out) around 6, and we'll be able to stay out later (Yey!).
Again we'll be at the little wodden stage that Deimos specified (Its also near the big plastic Wave). Anyone who can come is welcome, its always fun to meet more um... poi-ers ^^ Especially ones who can teach us new tricks *wink wink, nudge nudge*
Well, I guess I'll see whoever makes it down tomorrow. Hope you can make it down this time Dawn... by the way, whats your name on here anyways?

Posted:Flipmodius and I went down to the waterfront today to spin for his friend as a belated birthday present. Flip had a pretty good crowd for his rope torch and as soon as I lit up someone dropped a toonie in the hat!So nice of them!
I'm a little upset though, since today was the last day I would let myself use my wicks, bits were starting to fall off and they were becoming too dangerous. This means I might have to cut back on spinning with you all until my new kevlar comes in...
