Getting A Yo-Yo Shout-Out in The Middle Of a Graffiti DVD from 2005

Bench Warmers was a documentary-style series of DVDs about freight train graffiti culture in the 2000s. These “Magazine DVDs” primarily focused on the art of writing on trains, but the series also featured interviews, stop motion animation, underground hip hop, and musical performances. In “Bench Warmers Volume 3”, they even featured a few minutes of tricks by a couple of young yo-yo players. Imagine my surprise when I heard my name mentioned 13 minutes into a graffiti documentary from 2005. Shout out to Brian Lee and Dweeb for sharing their yo-yo skills in 2005’s Bench Warmers #3 DVD.

Another Yo-Yo Video from San Francisco

I’ve recently released a new yo-yo called the Populist, which meant it was time to make another yo-yo video. This one was shot around the Mission District in San Francisco. It’s been really windy here lately, so I shot most of these clips in the early morning, which gives the video a really moody/foggy feel. I thought that paired nicely with the song by Benjamin Mørk. Enjoy! I also shot some behind the scenes footage with more details about the yo-yo. The post <span >Another Yo-Yo Video from San Francisco</span> appeared first on Doc Pop's Blog ..read more

The Mini-Panzer: The World’s Smallest Yo-Yo

The Mini-Panzer is the smallest unresponsive yo-yo in history. It’s machined in brass, but available with gold or silver plating. It is .7″ tall, weighs 21.5 grams, and has the smallest bearing you’ve ever seen. This video isn’t sponsored content, I just thought it was a cool yo-yo. I bought mine from YoYoExpert, but I think Yo-Yo Store Rewind has some too. Available on some sites here: Spingear YoYoStore Rewind YoYoExpert It’s worth noting that B!ST made an EVEN SMALLER yo-yo back in 2012, but his appears to be responsive. I don’t think it ever made it to the market either, but it looks a ..read more

Yo-Yo Magic Tricks

When I used to work at a yo-yo kiosk, I used to prank my co-workers with these yo-yo magic tricks. I had been meaning to film them for years, but it wasn’t until I heard this funny episode of the 2.0 podcast that I finally got around to filming it. I used a short audio clip from that podcast in part one of my yo-yo magic trick videos. See if you can figure out how I did them: “Although magic and yo-yos are impressive on their own, they could benefit from combining…” Here’s a magic trick that will only impress other yo-yoers. Hints: There is no editing or post production used in these trick ..read more

Why does AI think that the yo-yo emoji looks so beautiful?

Emoji are not displaying correctly in this post. For a better experience, read this article on https://doctorpopular.com/why-does-midjourney-create-beautiful-art-when-i-use-the-yo-yo-emoji/ Y’all know me, right? So you know, when I got access to generative art tools like Dalle 2 and Midjourney, the first thing I tried using as a prompt was the word “yo-yo”. That’s a no-brainer, and you may have already seen my video about it. Using AI to reimagine yo-yo tricks While making that video, I had a strange realization that anytime I used the ?

Hand-painted wooden yo-yos that look like donuts

Happy #NationalDonutDay! These donut shaped yo-yos were given away at a Dunkin’ Donuts grand opening back in 1948. They are fixed axle with large holes that run through the middle. I asked my friend John Higby to paint on the sprinkles and cream. To be honest, they used to look more like bagels than donuts. Brought out some special yo-yos for this hole-y day. #NationalDonutDay pic.twitter.com/iTmnMGYdNB — DoctorPopular.RSS (@DocPop) June 3, 2022 The post <span >Hand-painted wooden yo-yos that look like donuts</span> appeared first on Doc Pop's Blog ..read more
