Got my first “original” trick tonight. Call it a kick start. I just rest a dead yo on the floor and squeeze it between my shoe and the floor. That causes the yo to squirt out and start spinning. It’s really simple, so I am sure its not unique, But it is the first time I did something that I did not hear about or see before so while I am sure no one is impressed, I think I can be proud of it. Baby steps right. lol
Very cool to come up with that! I’m afraid though, it’s not a new concept.
watch dylan kowalski’s 6 binds vid
You mean this?
Totally understand that feeling. I’ve come up with a few “original” tricks as well, in that I didn’t learn them from another person. It’s the best feeling when you accidentally find something cool to do, and then figure out how to do it on purpose.
Bill Alton also recorded this trick in “The Noble Disk” newsletter, somewhere around 1990-91
THE NOBLE DISK you say!?
That took me a while to compile and edit. Glad people are still making use of it and downloading it.
I was just reading it! I love it! Thank you! I wish there were still paper yoyo newsletters and a magazine.
I know Steve Brown has all the YoYoTimes issues that he wants to have made into a digital ebook one day. It’ll be great to have them available to everyone. Wish I would have kept my copies
From 18 -30 years old I was a punk / hardcore zine fanatic - I made em, traded em, bought em through the mail. There’s something about being able to hold, touch, feel, smell, a paper publication that can not be replaced by digital stuff. Oh, well, I’m old. I crave paper. I gotta figure out a way to print out that pdf. Maybe Office Max.
