Thanks, koko.

I'm pretty sure Tito has some bot or script voting for him 24/7... 'cause he suddenly has like 100 more votes than me. Dunno if I should figure out how to do the same... hahah.

No pressure, but the contest ends Monday, so if you guys wanna vote for me again somehow, that would be delightful :) Regardless, I'll be giving lightshows and hugs in 5 months :pulse

You've come a long way from being stranded in Virginia's snow with only a bathing suit, Ms. Ninja! I'm looking forward to a show in 5 months!

Guaranteed, you put that bathing suit on and do your thing in the middle of the street like Tito did, and he'd have no choice but to throw himself under the next bus out... that is, if the first person to see you doesn't run him over first! lol

Aw Bev, I will definitely teach you some moves when I see you at Coachella :) Are you practicing with poi too?

BROKENDOLL
11-27-2011, 02:40 PM
Aw Bev, I will definitely teach you some moves when I see you at Coachella :) Are you practicing with poi too?
Well, I guess you could call it practicing...

LESSON 1: See Allyjoy@ 2009 Coachella displaying her lightshow skills and the seed was planted. (I'm easily amused by bright shiny lights and blinky things...kind of like a moth, you could say.)
LESSON 2: Spend endless hours on the internet researching all that glows, from fingerlights to poi balls. (When I dance, my hands tend to dance right along with me, so fingerlights probably would have been a good start. But...they were too easy.)
LESSON 3: EDC 2009, "Oh, look, babe! A kiosk that sells bright shiny things!" $25 later, I'm the new owner of a set of what I would call, "ratchet lights."
tWBtZ1dIA9E
A far cry from Allyjoy's skills, and if you'll take notice, one ratchet has already taken a shit after colliding mid-air with the other ratchet. (#@$&*!) But, I am a determined moth, and would not give up so easily! (Besides, I actually had a guy come up and watch me so intently that I was convinced there was hope. Couldn't tell you how many hits of acid he had taken, but it was enough to convince me to prevail! lol)
LESSON 4: Back to the internet for studying up on all sites that sells shiny shit that blinks, etc... The fingerlights call out to me because they're just too easy. But, after watching several poi ball videos and then seeing yours, I'm determined to learn the art of poi. (That may be the problem...you've seen my form of art... it's like comparing stick figures to Michelangelo. lol)
LESSON 5: Wanting to start out right means starting with the basics... except a tennis ball shoved down in a sock wasn't doing it for me. I ended up ordering a set of balls for EDC 2010, in which we ended up missing afterall and sadly, my balls were on backorder anyway... :(
LESSON 6: EDC 2011. Another kiosk beckons me, and there they were... Poi balls that had lights built in to them, along with a rubber covering to help prevent injury and breakage. Another $50 later I am now the proud owner of a set of balls, as well as two light wands with various settings for the lights inside. Afraid of giving the impression that I really knew what the fuck I was doing with the balls and then looking like an ass in front of those that do know what they're doing, I set those aside to practice at home first. The light sticks were good enough, and apparently I was too because I had a guy during Richie Hawtin absolutely enchanted with my skills! (Guess I should mention that his eyes were practically rolled into the back of his head, but still...the seed has not died.)
LESSON 7 began back at home, and more excitement was added when a week later, the first set of balls I had ordered a year earlier had finally arrived. How could I not learn the art of Poi? I've got more balls than most, and also 5 months to at least get the basics down. So far, I've learned and been told, "Do not play with those in the fucking house or you'll break something!" As well as learning that it stings for just abit when one hits you in the face. I know that the cats think I am just the Cat's meow when I play with them... well, that is until one of them almost got hit, but the intrigue is still there. Knowing that you'll be there in 2012 and are willing to help an old moth out, just thrills the shit out of me! I'm sure it's not often that the opportunity to be schooled by the Master Ninja comes up and I am excited!

Do you have any tips for a new baller? Or... should I just attempt to go straight for the fire balls and put an end to this fantasy of mine? LOL By the way... you just got another vote from me! :)

11-27-2011, 02:44 PM

I started out watching youtube videos, Beverly. I watch playpoi's tutorials because I think they explain the moves the best :) I'll send you some links when my internet isn't too laggy :)

I guess the best advice that I got when I started was to make sure you practice moves on both arms so you don't get used to only leading with your right arm. Also, try to learn the forward and backwards of a move when you start out, so you develop muscle memory both ways right away. I only learned the forward way for some moves, so it was harder to do the move backwards because my hands were so used to the other direction. Stay free and light and you will be great :)

But nunchaku is a Japanese word. Gwai lo is a Cantonese insult. And I thought you were from a Mandarin background?
