    Bring it back! Bring it back!
  2. New Beans

    I personally use Extreme Glow and bulk order Revs http://www.extremeglow.com/store/p/68-6-Revolution-5-Minute-Lightsticks-10-pack.aspx
  3. They doesn't look like they have anywhere to attach strings to. I have never bought from this site before.
  4. There's a glowsticking discord channel! Join and chat with other fellow glowstickers https://discordapp.com/invite/Ub8PxWJ
  5. My fire poi set is in and I love them! The Technora have a much more string-like feel to them and don't bother me at all when holding them directly with the knobs... speaking of the knobs! Totally worth the $40 extra. They are a fun touch to make them feel unique and standout from the other usual fire poi sets I've seen. I need to start learning moves to utilize them more! They have all sorts of color settings, but I find the yellow solid color setting looks the nicest when I'm spinning with fire. It can sometimes be difficult to press the button on the knobs, but I think that's just me having weak thumbs haha. As far as the small monkey fists, I am totally happy with the size of the fire. It might just be a fire culture thing to care about large flames, but coming from glowsticks, the weight trade isn't worth it for me. I find I can spin much longer without getting tired and I can spin faster than I had been able to with past poi sets I've tried out. I'm still getting used to spinning fire, but I highly recommend this config if you are looking into buy fire poi. Here's a quick clip of me spinning them and not being very good lol: https://photos.app.goo.gl/hfh7kW5sEJSErSQa2 Also a snapchat I took of them when I first got them newFirePoi.mp4
  6. Hey! I just ordered my first pair of fire poi ever! I felt like I couldn't completely depart from my glowing roots, so I ordered it with the following: - The smallest monkey fists I could order (the weight difference with past fire poi I've tried always throws me) - Fire resistant rope called Technora rather than chain - Ultra Knobs, which are rechargeable LED handles They are arriving in a few days, so I will report back on what I think of them from a previously strictly glowstinging perspective. Up til now, I've had little to no interest in spinning fire because of how different it feels and the minimal wrapping options. But I'm interested to see how far the prop has come with these new options. Stay Tuned!
  7. Old school free hand

    It says video is unavailable
  8. IT'S ALIVE!

    Thank you Xepher! That means a lot and welcome to GS.c! If you have any questions or happen to be in socal, let me know! I want to make videos again, so keep an eye out haha
  9. IT'S ALIVE!

    The forum is so nice to use now! Thank you Dave! Two things I wanted to point out: 1. When creating a new post, the text in the Title and Tag box are black for me (rather than the off white the text box field is). This could just be a setting I have in my browsers, but I'm curious if you or others are also see this. I've been just getting around this by highlighting the text before moving on. 2. I REALLY like Tinychat... I know there's a slim chance, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for it to come back and be visible with who's in the room on the forum page like before. That was the way that I became so close with my friends on GS.c. There's another level of connection when I can video stream with my fellow GS.c peeps. It of course doesn't have to be Tinychat as a platform, but having a chatroom with video options and an easy way of seeing who's in the room would be so awesome! P.S. I just want GS.c to live again!
  10. Sunset Flow Jam every Wednesday evening! When: 6:00pm (ends sometime between 9-10) Where: 110 Pier Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90405, USA Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/glowflow We have a few glowstringers that come out pretty consistently every week, myself included now. We normally arrive at around 7pm.
  11. GSC Revival Collab

    This never came out did it... lol I can't remember what footage I sent for this. If it ever does get made, maybe that will be the official GSC Revival.
  12. OK, so it has never failed that whenever I got to some sort of massive or rave that I get asked that question, "Are you rolling?" I remember meandering the threads and finding a topic of how to start up conversations at raves, and this is how every stranger seems to start up a conversation. Does anyone else find this true?
  13. How many days in a row can you post?

    Darn it... 1 ^-^
  14. Back into glowstringing after....4 years?

    Thanks Rorok! I'll try to get on here more!
  15. Back into glowstringing after....4 years?

    Nice! I couldn't sleep last night, so I ended up stringing until 4:30am. I tried going into Tinychat just for fun too. It's too bad no one can tell if someone is in there from the Forum page anymore.
  16. Completely New

    Hey Andrew! I hope you can gain some confidence from glowsticking! It's the only performing art I can do confidently in front of people. Good luck! And if you have any questions, go ahead and ask. I am not on here regularly anymore, but there's a good group of people in this community.
  17. Don't worry GSC

    Super late to the party, but I came, so that's something

  21. So I have this random desire to post a topic about SLO GLO. SLO GLO is a small community of glowstickers in this little college town called San Luis Obispo (hence the SLO). For 2 hours every Wednesday night, we get together and effectively have a glowsticking meetup/workshop where we all hang out, encourage and teach glowsticking, and show the newest things going on in the rest of the glowsticking world with video showing. SLO GLO is coming on it's 4th year, and we have been SLOly growing larger and larger. We just released our largest member collab yet, and we finally just created our very own Youtube channel. SLO GLO really started coming into creation in the fall of 2008 with guinto and en814. Their freshman year at Cal Poly State University, en814 saw guinto glowstringing one day, and he started hollering "weave!" "arm wrap!" "spiral!" trying to say all the moves he was doing at the time. After that, they started spending their nights walking around the college just practicing together in the dead of night visiting whoever and then moving on. One night when into the computer lab where I (Aqua) was working on an assignment. I had never seen glowsticking before, and I honestly didn't think much of it because they were swinging deads. Some time after that, I decided to try it out, and guinto and I were up until dawn glowsticking! On my birthday, he gave me a "Glowstringing Starter Kit" with a couple strings, LEDs, practice sticks, and a couple pairs of ultras. From then on I was in. After summer passed, we started our sophomore year, and someone named melvenorc12 entered Cal Poly, and he already know a few glowstringing tricks we all began meeting up in one of the side rooms of the computer lab where I first saw guinto and en814 stringing, and we asked a couple DJ friends of ours to play some music while roughly 6 or 7 of us all practiced! There we came up with a name for these weekly meetings, and that's when SLO GLO was created! Since then, we've made tons of videos, and met new amazing people who have picked up this art, and have come to love it as much as the founding members. There have been tons of comments on our videos that say that SLO GLO is what inspired them to string too! It has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever been in. In the next year, the founding members are all going to depart from SLO GLO though. We had our first SLO GLO member, core2, graduate, and guinto has also just graduated as well. This June, en814 and I are going to graduate as well. melvenorc12 will be the last founding member to leave in March 2014. But I really hope that SLO GLO stays alive and strong once we leave. We have some amazing glowstringers who have learned a lot while in SLO GLO, and are even better than some of the founding members! Anyways, here's the most recent SLO GLO Member Collaboration! Subscribe to the new SLO GLO channel if you want to see more! We are planning to have one final SLO GLO Core video released some time soon on this channel
  22. http://youtu.be/1yXgLbX9wO4 Just rewatched the '05 East Coast Meetup video again, and it's just so good! I really want to make it out to the east coast some day soon. I really hope the scene is still strong like it was in this video! I don't want to jinx it, but in a year, I want to say I will have enough money saved up to go out there for Super Spring Break Meetup 2014. It will be much easier to save since I'm graduating college in June. I've never been anywhere further east than Chicago (which isn't even east), so when I go, I'm going to make it a full vacation while I'm at it. I'll bring melvenorc12 with me too! I can't wait to meet all of you guys!
