one time when i was glowsticking, the knot on one of my strings gave, causing my freshly cracked stick to fly through the air and land in the toilet. :wallbash:

One time at sparrows house in frisco I wandered out along the edge of a lake (very thin strip of land, water on one side, fence on the other) late at night because I thought it would be an epic location to freehand. The freehanding was going well for a couple of minutes until I missed a toss. The glowstick hit the ground and disappeared!

 

I was like WTF! My glowstick just disappeared! So I got down and started looking in the area it landed and discovered that it had fallen into a deep crack in the earth. The stick was at least two feet down, I stuck my arm in a long way and still couldn't reach it.

 

So I called Valeranth over to check out my insane situation. He confirmed that yes, my glowstick was unreachable. So I did the only thing I could do. I took pictures and then proceeded to dig out the side of the lake to retrieve my glowstick from the bowels of the earth.

 

It was an epic adventure, fraught with peril. At any point the ground I was standing on could have given out from under me and I would have gone careening into the lake. But at last after much digging I had victory over mother nature and recovered my stick.

 

Here are two different views of the glowstick in question, swallowed up by the earth:

One time I was using some horrible Coleman glowsticks at this club, and as I was stringing, the hook broke, spraying glowing blue liquid... All over some guy about twice the size of me. The stick hit him in the face too.

 

I never went back there.

LoveFest 11' Afterparty (Which as known as Lovevolution now) was wicked since the Ultra Circle made it through.It wasn't too crowded making stringing comfortable,the vibe was awesome and the air conditioner at the event was nice :) (I'd like to see another Ultra Circle happen in the bay area again this year)

Shit was rockin'

Got a string session going with R3dlin3 yesterday.I haven't seen the dude for awhile and he still has his moves down lol

Awesome glowsticking adventure story number 2:

 

This one time at band camp...er, at a gsc meetup... Our meetup escalated into the making of a horror movie. (It's at the end of a meetup video.)

 

There was even a death in the movie. Poor Trance-Rckr was murdered.

 

Just thinking back on making that brings a smile to my face. A bunch of glowstickers got together and made a horror movie. How unlikely, yet true. :D

awesome adventure #2

 

candy mountain @ afterlife '08

event had somewhere between 1,000-3,000 people (rumours tho, was prolly only like +500)

 

we handed out rainbow walls to everyone

at midnight we cracked ultra rainbow walls and I did a duet with 3D to open up the dallas ultra circle

it was a pretty remarkable night for the dallas rave scene (but even more-so for the DFW glow community)

 

then had Dallas SWAT bust the event and started pointing guns at us!!

shit was so intense, especially when the helicopter started circling overhead

we all got a pretty good scare (and later a laugh) out of it xD

Yes, fun? memories. I got a gun pointed right in my face by a butch blonde ponytail swat woman. Someone sitting across from me dropped a glowstick or lighter or something and asked if he could pick it up or if she could kick it to him and she said "Shut up." and that's all she ever said. The guys in the ski masks were scarier than butch blonde woman though. It was an interesting experience to say the least.

well...

i was at electric sun fest saturday, and there was this one point where the DJ *i can't remember which one it was for the life of me='( or the song atm.

I was in the dunking booth chillin' with a few people i had met, (we were pretty much doin' our own thing) and i felt something take over kiinda, i threw my sticks in the water.. Boom. Boom. in perfect sync and proceeded to stick under water.. as best i could anyway lol. It felt soo good.

and i don't know why i didnt notice but when i did, there were 3 people just standing there watching.

i was floored. i froze. (side note* after i had got out, this guy robert i had met. showed me what it looked like from out there.. and with the way the tank was && the water i guess, it did look kinda badass -anyway) it was awesome. they were cool ass people too.

i saw a few other people who had sticks with them *mostly stringers;p

&& gloves. but thats maybe a handful, and they didn't do much.

-well i didn't either but thats because i dont know shiit. lol ^which kinda sucked cause' i was hoping to pick some brains.

or maybe, i didn't notice.. i was in my own little world, but hey. it was amaziing. <3

met some cool ass people.

did some crazy ass shit.

learned alot.

can't wait to do it again.

 

oh! && my birthday when my homeboy N8strings, showed me what he could do forreal. That is an image that will be burned into my brain forever.

he was pretty damn good.

Fun fact that ultra circle is my favorite glowsticking clip of all times!

 

I dont have too many crazy stories but legends tell of this one time this Bad Karaoke guy went to Texas for edc and it was fucking amazing until the police dept shut it down, but Karaoke being the bad ass mother fuck that he, according to legend, is was like fuck this the party aint over! So his friends took him to an Ihop where he continued his shenanigans.... or so the legend says

I remember the next day (i think it was Rehan) telling me how his car was having issues and when he was trying to get a jump to his car the swat team like pushed him into the car and the helicopter was shining its light on him...

 

That Story never gets old. How cops storm into a HUGE cuddle puddle fest.....

I've been absent well because "life happens" basically. Right when I really started getting into glowsticking I got married and had two kids. It doesn't leave much time for a whole lot else. I still check in from time to time though.

Speaking of 'glowstickers where are you' How is that we get two days / nights of people in tinychat, and for the past few, ive seen 0.... :( I blame that 'thread' that came up....I'd stay in TC but it lags me out after 10 minutes of inactivity.
