What are you doing today?

Drove down to visit Jordan (@chaosgow) yesterday. Met his Nan, had a lovely dinner all together and spent 6 hours learning how to yoyo from a legend. Got to try a lot of his cool collection too. Was an amazing day no phone, no interruptions. Just pure yoyo and a good chat for hours. Thank you for the everything and the hospitality.

on hindsight I should have taken some photos…

P.s. the new absurdity was mind blowing good. Took one away with me on loan :grin:

I’ve been a bit quiet here because I’m building a new Reef aquarium. This has been on my to do list since moving in, and I’m really excited to be getting to it. I am going to custom plumb the whole bottom half of the tank with Schedule 80 gate valves and red PVC! It’s gonna look like an over-engineered mad scientist’s laboratory. I’ve created a ‘build thread’ on the Reef2Reef forum in case you’re curious… Funny thing, people kept asking me about the yoyos in the shadow boxes. Gave them a little explanation and linked them to one of Gentry’s old trailers and the reef community loved it. :slight_smile:

Got a big pot of vegetable beef soup on the stove. Next up, white chocolate chip cookies with almonds, cranberries and sunflower seeds.image

Man I can’t wait to see some photos of the completed tank! Any chance you could share a video when it’s all set up? :smiley:

Absolutely! I’ll be sharing some build photos as I go. I’m actually just as exciting about the plumbing as I am about the reef tank, LOL. Here’s a photo of an amaze-balls tank that is serving as inspiration for me:

I have 4 x 29 gal freshwater tanks and a single 40 gal freshwater. Nothing close to this. Nice!

If Tony Stark/Iron Man had a fish tank…it’d look just like this!

The tattoosmanship (new word) really makes cool drawings look even better.

Thoroughly disappointed is the yoyo being removed though.

is that permanent ink?

Agreed! But it had two fatal flaws:

  1. Was on the wrong hand.
  2. Was going into the ground.
    Also I want my yoyo tattoo to be its own thing!

Very!

did you do it yourself? or did someone else do it for you?

I can understand your thinking there.

Although I saw it more 3d and almost walk the dog or forward pass. And maybe that pokemon is a southpaw?

Either way, cant wait to see the dedicated yoyo tat.

I had a thought that it would be a Dragonite in a double or nothing, then realized that Dragonite has pretty stubby arms so it would like real dumb. Likely going to be a pair of zombie or bone hands doing something impressive.

Lol I am not in prison! A professional in a very clean environment did it for me. But if you meant the drawing itself, the same professional did it for me. I am a bad artist, lol.
