19 April 2012: Hold on new orders
I need to suspend work through June 1. I’m overloaded with Burning Flipside stuff.
6 May 2011: flowarts.net
For a long time, Home of Poi was the go-to website for fire artists. Then tribe.net took its place. Then tribe.net encountered persistent technical problems and everyone seemed to migrate to facebook. This left the fire community without anything like a central clearinghouse of information.
Well, the folks behind flowtoys have created such a website, flowarts.net. Check it out.
16 April 2011: Flipside crunch
With Flipside just around the corner, an uptick in orders, and general busyness in my everyday life, orders are taking a little longer to get out the door. I’ll be grateful for as much lead time as you can afford in your order. If you need your order by a certain date, please tell me.
The fine print
Firedancing is potentially dangerous. If you haven’t figured that out yet, you shouldn’t be playing with fire. Even assuming my products are without defect and you don’t make any major mistakes, you will probably burn yourself a little at some point, or at least singe some hair. And it is possible (heaven forbid) that you will burn yourself severely using my products. In which case you may decide to sue my ass, and you may well win, but I’m not rich so you won’t collect a big-time judgement against me, although you will ruin my life. I’m not carrying any liability insurance on my firedancing business. I mean, you think my stuff is overpriced now—can you imagine how expensive my products would need to be to cover that? In offering this stuff for sale, I am relying on your good will and reasonableness.
I make every effort to ensure that my equipment is as safe as possible. Please do your part and inspect it regularly for wear and damage. If anything looks suspicious, don’t use it–send it back so I can see what the problem is. If there’s anything you just don’t like, let me know so that I can try to fix it.
