I went out to the California State Yo-Yo Contest in Oakland, CA last month. I don’t enter contests anymore, I just like to show up and hang out. I met some new folks and traded tricks with old friends. These were all shot on my Lomography LC-A+, my go to camera, with some of this wonderfully aged 35mm film.
I got sick of constantly having my yo-yo videos taken off of Instagram, Youtube, or Facebook because of DMCA takedowns, so I decided to just start making the sounds myself. You can hear what I’m talking about in my 3 most recent yo-yo videos.
r/Throwers, the yo-yoing community on Reddit, was torn apart this weekend by a huge controversy. Is Rock the Baby performed with the palm up, or palm down?
The debate started shortly after yotricks posted this tutorial. A flame war quickly broke out on Reddit, with many people chiming in on the “correct” way to do this classic picture trick. All of which is ridiculous… it’s palm down obviously.
