There’s a photo that tends to go viral once or twice a year. It’s an angiogram of a professional yo-yoer’s right hand that shows significant damage to one the fingers on his throwand. That finger belongs to my buddy Dazzling Dave Schulte, from Minnesota. After the image went viral again last week, I reached out to Dave to ask him the story about this photo and what it’s like to be one of the few full-time-yo-yo-professionals on this planet.
I’m in Park City, UT for the last week of Sundance Film Festival. Christine and I have seen 7 films/collections, so here’s a quick list of my favorites.
- Untitled Amazing Jonathan Documentary
- Hail Satan?
- The Witch Hunters
- Indie Episodic Part One
- Shorts Program: Winners
- Shooting The Mafia
- Light From Light
During last year’s 24 Hour Comic Day challenge, I created a silly comic book about yo-yos called “Believe it or Knot”. I’ve been yearning to make a book like this for years and I think it turned out awesome. You can download it for just $3 here, or you can get it for free when you support me on Patreon.
The book was created almost entirely on my iPad using Procreate and an Apple Pencil. The only non-ipad stuff was the fonts I added in photoshop. I sure wish Procreate supported fonts.
I’ve been throwing this yo-yo a ton since our 48 Hour Yo-Yo Project in Eugene. It feels like I’ve rediscovered my love for yo-yoing all over again. Here are a couple recent tricks:

I’m HOPING to have the Weekender Kickstarter ready for launch on December 3rd. Fingers crossed.
