    I cracked a pair of sticks last night for the first time since 2011 or 2012. I really don't understand why I quit practicing freehanding on the norm for so long. Perhaps its because I started listening to other genres of music that don't inspire me to dance so much. I love those other genres, but they don't have that beat, flow and beauty of EDM that drives me to move to the music. I love glowsticking so much. It's such a great way for me to express myself and it's so beautiful and feels so freaking fantastic - and it's great exercise to boot. Once I cracked the sticks last night I found that I just couldn't stop. I practiced for hours. I remembered why I put so many thousands of hours of practice into this art. It's a part of who I am. Just like painters can't help but paint, bodybuilders can't help but work out, etc, glowsticking is something that's embedded so deep in my soul that once I got going it all came back to me and I did not want to stop. I'm a bit rusty now, and sore too from so much exercise I'm no longer used to doing regularly. My left hand doesn't want to hit the angles I worked for years training it to do. But that will change. Once I shake some of the rust off I'll start posting videos again. Just thought I would share my excitement at diving back into this wonderful art.

    people have lives to live. most people went into other props, shit happens. why overthink it? what are you doing/have you done to keep the scene or art going? i'm sure life happened for you, which is why i can assume you haven't been active or done anything. post up a video. lemme see some content. i wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the community. gsc made me the sticker i am today. a place to meet likeminded prop artists, have a little fun and to learn and teach with content sharing. but if this is the community now, just a circlejerk, then i want just about nothing to do with that. (i know it's not a circlejerk) 12 years later and yeah, you want to feel nostalgic, but when was the last time you picked up some sticks or pushed a concept. looks like from your post history you just like to pop in every now and then, and leave. no consistency. before that,you made a thread about coming back...and then you left again. i get it, you want to come in here and feel nostalgic, flex on "newer" members. no one cares man. if you want to keep it alive, put out some content, start a meetup, teach someone at an event. threads like this sure as hell don't help your cause. unless you just want story time, then hell yeah brother, keep it up. let's go down memory lane all day instead of stick. just because you may feel like it died, sure as hell doesn't mean that it died. glowsticking is and will always be a daily part of my life.

    I'm in the third one. This community means so much to me and everything you said was true icy in one way or another. You where one of the first sinor members I met at my first meeetup in 08. I don't get out much anymore unless I'm working or DJing a event. But when I do I'm normally the only freehander there. I feel so alone at times being part of a dying breed.

    Hi all! Brooms is the name of a glowsticking retreat held over the weekend of July 8th in Indio California. The event was organized and run by Nitro and Demo. It was a three day long event that some 50 glowstickers attended where we practiced, performed, and taught glowsticking all weekend. In addition, we held LEDstick making workshops, held a Gala Show, and had an Ultra Circle! The video I linked is part 1 of a compilation of footage from the Gala Show. Please enjoy! More videos will be released in the coming weeks.

    I decided to film a video and post it on here. Haven't filmed in a while, and I'm kinda out of practice. But it really was fun to pick up my sticks again.
