I approve very much of everything in this picture.


#8

i see no pen + paper for hastilly-scribbled, near incomprehensible diagrams of new tricks?


#9

My yoyo of choice, often CZM8, rally, or Proton. My Treehugger for when I need to switch it up a bit (along with extra strings and a paperclip, 'cause dang…). Headphones for my motoX. Tend to listen to my upbeat Industrial mix or some dance-oriented indy. Optional are friends/fiance to talk to while playing, some sort of beverage, and access to my laptop for tutorials or inspiration.


#10

Good stuff guys. Love the energy drinks idea, gonna try them next instead of DMD. Anyway, I may have had one too many beef sticks last night…but either way, it was still productive.
I need to find some good music to listen to when I throw, I’m getting tired of watching the tv. I think I’ll give dubstep a whirl.


#11

Safety pin
Water
Good music
A fully size body cutout of jensen kimmit (for inspiration of course) :wink:

Cool topic. Honestly I don’t set aside time to PRACTICE yoyo much, but I do find myself on the porch with these effects quite a bit. We have a “Yoyo Room” about 20ft away with hundreds of yo-yo’s and all my string/supplies, but ironically i find it too cluttered to be creative in there. Way prefer fresh air. I throw mainly in the morning, so I usually have black coffee and frequent ukulele breaks help me reset. Pandora (Charlie Parker station) is a go-to. Usually use 86400 for 1a or the minute for 5aMay along with a No Jive and I have a GoPro handy for whenever I do something I think is interesting.

THIS


#16

Usually just a yoyo (usually my shutter), a bottle of water and my yoyo glove.


#17

When i really just want to sesh out, usually a yoyo, a spare string, a mechanical pencil (for knots) and I might play some music but I just can’t eat while I yoyo. The idea of dorito fingers on my cascade and white strings makes me cringe

3.plastic fork (seriously the best knot picker)
4.water
5.music


#19

I use the little “duck clips" from the jewelry section of walmart. They are AMAZING.
