  1. I rambled this out while waiting on a train. It started asking questions about wrap combos, but then ended up questioning overall glowstringing style I think. "What are you trying to achieve with your wrap combos? What is your goal? Are you trying to make a combo that is as technically difficult as possible? One that is visually pleasing? One that is perplexing? One that just feels good to pull off? One that is technically simple yet elegant enough to gain appreciation from all? Do you like high speed? Slow? Consistent speed? Matching moves with the beat of the music? Every wrap, trace, and swing? Or only select moves? Or do you just match the song whenever you can without going out of your way? Do you string to the beat or only match the music during special parts of the song? Do you string more with music, or without? Who is your intended audience? The public? other glowstringers? Poi spinners? Artists of some sort? Just yourself? No one? When do you think out your combos or routines in advance? For performances? Videos? All the time? Or do you just make up your combos on the spot? Are you just free styling completely? Or are you stitching a lot of mini-combos you've created in the past? Did you create them on accident? Or was it thought out?"

  5. 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.

    Glowsticking tip: You can draw inspiration from so many different things in life. I'd suggest at some point watching videos of different prop manipulations, dancing, and other performing arts. A lot of my moves for example where inspired by yo yo.

    I completely agree!

    Glowsticking tip: Try every type of move! Even if you don't think something is too appealing, or even if it doesn't have the best feel, the more well rounded you become the more you will see improvement in all areas of glowsticking.

    Glowsticking Tip: If you are having trouble picking up a move, try practicing something else! Giving your mind a break can often help you get past a wall. Trying different moves works your brain in new ways and may just unlock the door you need to learn something new.

    That was so much fun! Thank you for organizing it all Ken!

    Glowstringing tip: If you have trouble learning a move, try doing the move with one hand at a time! After you feel comfortable with each hand then you can try putting it all together!

    Glowsticking Tip: If you microwave your glowsticks, they will get brighter! Be careful though, if you microwave them too long, they will explode.

    Glowstringing tip! Try to find shoelaces that don't stretch. It helps a lot with consistently landing moves at different speeds!
