  1. As long and as weird as possible. Over the years that I've been stringing and taking breaks and coming back etc... I always come back to wrap combos and how fun they are. They just FEEL good. I'd say the "goal" is to keep it going and add in other concepts I learn into them. Like, I'll say "cheating" a combo would be one stick spinning a beat behind me while one is still wrapping and then continuing the combo. So, using what I just said for my goal, I'll use that beat to antispin into a different square (9square Theory) and then continue the combo in that different location
  2. Hey guys! Just wanted to give you all a heads up if you're near the San Gabriel Valley. We have a semi-weekly Flow Jam at Cortez Park in West Covina from 4:30pm~8:30pm. All Props welcome. It tends to be 2-4 stringers and about the same amount of hoopers. pm me for more info or find me on fb. FB Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1687769071446539/
  3. In my years, on both sides of the states, I've seen more negativity arise out of the "hate of battling" than actual battling. I don't battle, and won't, because of the culture here and how it raised me to view sticking. Which I'm still thankful for, but that's because I'm not a competitive person anyway, at least in a creative sense. The negativity that came with it was nothing more than the same kind of bullying/jackassery you'd find at a high school/college then. Just insert a topic, in this case glowstringing. Reading Zin and Danika's ideas; I think social media w
  4. Ok, don't promote it here. But ostracizing them from this site/community because of any type of pro-affiliation with something that isn't supported here?
  5. How about a revamp of the rules that don't claim ownership of an art form? Ones that don't create an unwelcoming environment to people from a different angle of life/understanding, but are interested in learning. Guidelines that promote the art and how creatives should treat each other, giving us a chance to create a community where we all grow, share, and make connections on the exterior as well as in. And lift all bans that currently pertain to the old rules. There is a lot of experience still around eager for a community, but these rules take away 100% focus on glowsticking to the point
  6. I've actually started messing around with gloving also. This actually looks pretty promising. I'm checking out the tutorial vids Good post!
  7. Sorry for being a month late! You're name does look familiar. But that's awesome that you're incorporating your freehand into it as well. Those isolations at the beginning! 0.0 I don't have much to critique other than it looks like your shoulders are the base of your poi for the most part. That's not bad for things like extensions, but the smaller stuff looks clunky, which is a bit jarring when your freehand was so clean. practice on spining from your wrists (they're already extremely limber from FH). Keep it up!!!
  8. Welcome to gsc! The site may not be a correct representation of the community, but it's still around. As Ph0ton said, people just gotta post. I just wouldn't rely on speedy replies.
  9. YES! I've been stringing since 2002 and I stop every few years or so for a stretch. And it's exactly like you said, Ph0toN, I never remember why I stopped. I'm sure it has to do with life getting a little too intense. But that's the lazy answer. I picked up my sticks again around Halloween, and I think I'm at a point in my life now where I recognized it's value. Everyone is different and not everyone's form of meditation/exercise is the same. I've worked practice into my daily routine now (before I go to sleep and when I wake up) and now it's what balances me out. I could go so far to
  10. I've been posting, just not in here hahaha
  11. I remember when I did handes for a bit. They're fun! Here's a guy in Hollywood still rockin em ( ) There's a trade-off, like every other (grip/tie/string/etc). I'm hesitant to say that you have to give up certain styles like manipulations and anything else people think are impossible with handles. But the way glowsticking has progressed, almost exponentially it seems, I'm positive someone with enough practice can come up with some pretty unique ideas. It's just learning the new feel.
  12. Well I didn't start posting in here on day 1 technically ;P
  13. I need to visit the east coast again soon!
  14. Not much activity on the forum, but Zin has been campaigning this whole time. And the SoCal group is small and scattered... I'm trying to be the glue lol. Lives change, and so do priorities. But I will say that a majority of my best friendships came from this site.
  15. I wonder if this site will ever get live again. With all the FB groups that people are using for progression... It's more convenient. IT would be cool to see how this place was again.
