Me gone 2 months. Me do lots work. Spend money on spinning toys and new underpants.
Me think lot. Brain hurt. Me scratch butt. No help brain hurt.
With break, me change. Me back now.
Ohh. Look. Penny
For all of you who apparently didn’t get the previous message, I sincerely hope this provides the clarity you need. STOP trying to buy my collection!
First: Why was I gone?
For those not paying attention or jumping in late, I just needed to prioritize some other stuff, namely some video editing projects. I also needed to prepare for some shows, one of which you may have heard of, CalStates. The truth is my work was the issue that kept me away, NOTHING else. There may have been some coincidental things, but my decision had already been made.
Second: Why did it take 2 months:
Because that’s what it took.
Third: I haven’t quit. I have been working on getting better. I’ve also been active in my own Sacramento Skill Toys group on Facebook:
I’ve been working hard to unite kendama and yoyo players, which hasn’t been difficult. I’m also trying to get other skill toy players out and OUTSIDE and MEETING WITH PEOPLE. I’ve also been tying this into working with local skill toy merchants. However, I’m not doing this for me, I’m doing this for the community. It just needs a force to drive it, and apparently I’ve got the force to drive it.
I was talking up yoyos and tops and kendama with Andre at CalStates. No way I’m quitting. I’m having too much fun. Regardless of the curve, I’m going to be sticking with this.
Heck, I just did sound for CalStates. I’m doing sound for BAC 2013. I’ve already secured CalStates for 2014, soI’m after getting BAC for 2014, and I’m still gunning for being the sound company for Nationals. I’m also going to be working Worlds 2013.
Been working on 4A whip, just started landing Magic Drop today for 1A. 5A isn’t going too well, nor is 2A, but you know, you just gotta keep at it, right? Of course you do! That’s how you get better!
Fourth: Oh yeah I’m still buying. My stash has increased quite a bit. So many standout items, so many great things. HH3, ReXtreme, Destiny, red DM2(got 4 DM2’s now), Rex, Rock, Jetset, Droid, Kuyostar, Trap(2), Trap 2013 and so many others. I take them around, share them and more. Not to single out something, but I’ve prepaid for a Civility. I’m also heading to Vietnam soon for 2 weeks of having my life wasted, so I’m taking yoyos to keep myself from going absolutely insane.
Most of my metals are snapped and online here:
I don’t know squat about photography, but that hasn’t stopped me from trying!
So many other models I want to get. I love sharing my stuff!
Now, some reality check:
Did the forum shrivel up and die without me? No, of course it didn’t. I’m sure things went by just fine without me. No, I wasn’t lurking either. I mean, I was GONE. When I posted something, I wrote it offline, logged in, posted, locked and logged out before anyone could notice I was here.
A few of you texted me. Some of you PM’ed me. Some of you emailed me. Nobody called, but that’s OK. Thank you. It was appreciated.
Expect longer post from me soon.
Oh, and NOT locking this one.
