Yo-yo, Bro was created by Joey
Back in 2008, I had gotten into the somewhat-of-a-sport-but-not-really of yo-yoing. No, a yo-yo is not simply a cheap plastic toy that goes up and down. This is an example of what the true art of yo-yoing is all about:


And this is what yo-yos really are: www.yoyoexpert.com

Also, even your average looping yo-yo can look extraordinary:


Anyways, I had forgotten about for a while. But ever since I made that bedroom transition discussed in my previous blog, I came across the yo-yos, and recently got hooked on the hobby again. I am not nearly as good as that guy in the video (who happens to be a world yo-yo contest champion), but you know: practice makes perfect.

So yeah. I just wanted to make awareness of the yo-yoing hobby really. Many call it a sport, so that's how I'm going to address it. It's not easy either; it takes a lot of practice - years of practice. But, it's fun - very fun.

I love you, but your attitude is like that of a shrew. Your options? Take a pill or be my kill. Might I suggest that you wear a vest. Perish in class or be banished to the land of bluegrass, where dreams don't exist as you'll be eternally pissed.

It would take me two years just to master the technique without the yo-yo.

I am a programmer. Most here know me for being one of the major contributors to Marble Blast Platinum and PlatinumQuest.

Oh. My. Gosh. This guy is sick! This would take me 4 years just to get the coordination right! I'm still hooked on yo-yo and i don't know how to get rid of my addiction, nor do I want to.
