Weiß hier zufällig jemand, wo man kompetente Anfänger- #YoYo s kaufen kann?
In 2018, The Method Makers posted an interview with Paul Escolar, a fantastic artist and extremely influential #yoyo player from the Bay Area. In 2021, the article was deleted during a big update to TMM's site. A few months later, Paul passed away.
I reached out to The Method Makers about the interview and they kindly dug up the old email interview. With their permission I've posted it here https://doctorpopular.com/the-method-makers-interview-with-paul-escolar/
Paul was a legend and I'm really glad we were able to archive this.
I drew a couple #yoyo related pieces for stickers and things, but was thinking about making an enamel pin out of one of these ideas. Which do you think would look better as a pin?

Had a great time at the SF #yoyo meetup today. Weather was a little wet and cold, but we still had fun. I think we had about 12 folks show up. 6 were first timers.
New cushions on the patio furniture? #Yoyo will be making sure they're the right ones.
Bummed too Golden Gate Park for our #yoyo meetup, but I made a quick stop at the Blooms End bakery pop up on Divisadaro. https://www.instagram.com/p/CsaDiQALSQr/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==

@glasspusher @catsnkittens But do they actually like to travel? Guessing no. #Yoyo is good at dividing his time between his house and ours, but he spent his first two years in San Diego here.
Some responsive counterweight tricks with the Weekender #Yoyo. #5AMay https://youtube.com/shorts/hGfh7xk0l-w?feature=share
I just restocked my site with Weekender Yo-Yos. These aluminum yo-yos are designed specifically for "modern responsive" play, meaning they are great for stalls and regens, but not intended for long spinning string tricks.
These are made in Eugene, OR and hand tested by me before shipping. #yoyo https://doctorpopular.com/shop/the-weekender-yo-yo/
#Yoyo is recovering well from his tail-loss injury. The fur is growing back on the portion thar was "sleeved." #catsofmastadon #cats
I'm organizing a #yoyo meetup in #SanFrancisco on Saturday May 20th. We'll be located at the giant water-fountain in front of the Golden Gate Park Bandshell. It's free, outdoors, and open to anyone. https://doctorpopular.com/san-francisco-yo-yo-meetup-on-may-20th-2023/

The song "Dance Now" is by Jid.
It's #5AMay in the #yoyo community. 5A, also known as Freehand or Counterweight, is a style of yo-yoing that has a weight attached to the end of the string. This allows for a completely different style of play, including completely letting go of the string while playing.
Here's some footage of me playing 5A while surrounded by synthesizers for some reason.

@glasspusher #Yoyo is a Brooklyn dumpster baby. He's a survivor.
When making my #yoyo trick videos, I like to record short songs to go along with each trick.
For my newest tutorial, I asked my sponsors on Patreon to try writing jingles and I included my favorites in the final video https://youtu.be/pYzr2dlKqNM
#Yoyo had a little mishap Friday night, and lost about a third of his tail to something—a car door is my best guess. He's fine; the middle third of his tail is bandaged because it had to be shaved. He's not happy about staying in or wearing a collar.
Opened up a yoyo design that I created on contract for yoyotricks.com. It uses a tiny MR85 ball bearing, m3x12mm axle, and silicone response pads. The yoyo body is anodized 6061 aluminum. It turned out pretty well! #yoyo #yoyodesign
It’s interesting how with the larger nosed rocket the handwork feels better if the movements are more mechanical. #yoyo #5Ayoyo #astrostyle
My new #yoyo video is online now!
It features an original soundtrack and all original tricks. "Slow Streets, Responsive Yo-Yos" was shot entirely on beautiful Sanchez Street in #SanFrancisco. One of my favorite #SlowStreet projects in SF.

Hey y'all, my new #yoyo video is live now!
It's filled with original "responsive counterweight" tricks, but it's also a love letter to Sanchez St, my favorite #SlowStreet in #SanFrancisco. Watch it here https://youtu.be/OZa19jeNVtM
Some big #yoyo things happening today. First off, I'm doing a second release of the Doc Pop edition Things on DoctorPopular.com at 10am PDT.
Secondly, I'm releasing my new trick video, "Slow Streets". This video was shot on Sanchez Street, one of my favorite #SlowStreet projects in #SanFrancisco. It's the first full length trick video I've made featuring my "responsive counterweight" tricks. Slow Streets premieres today at 2pm PDT https://youtu.be/OZa19jeNVtM
A freehand #yoyo combo I'm working on. Not sure where to take it next. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/EmIbeitkErM
Todays throw - Pom Mojo #yoyo #5Ayoyo #astrostyle
A #yoyo design i’m producing that I call the Unicorn. It’s made of anodized aluminum, stainless steel weight rings, and matte translucent polycarbonate caps designed to be used like a top.
I learned this neat repeater yesterday. #yoyo https://www.youtube.com/shorts/MiMPjeSjekk
It’s #yoyo #mosstodon time.
Playing with a new #yoyo from Polyform.
"Yes, someone in Central America, maybe Costa Rica, carved this bowl knowing that it would someday be brought to California so that I could sit in it. Because I am #Yoyo, and it is #Caturday for #CatsofMastadon"
@docpop Perhaps not the same spelling (#yoyo), but still fun... and lots of 'tricks' included 😉
The most dangerous #yoyo in my collection.

One of my yo-yos made a cameo in @emilyharpist's newest video.
I'm a huge fan of Emily's music and videos, so I sent her a green Bolt #yoyo last year as a gift. I know she's been getting some use out of it, but I was really cool to see it get some love in one of her videos.

I wrote a post about the "engineer's notebooks" by Don Watson. Don is often cited as the designer of the modern ball bearing #yoyo, and these books are filled with hand-written formulas, charts, and diagrams that explain the #physics of a yo-yo.
If Forrest Mims made a series of #zines about yo-yos, this is what it would look like.
I've posted photos of these notebooks, plus downloadable PDFs on my blog. https://docpop.org/2023/01/don-watsons-yo-yo-physics-zines/
My 10 year old nephew has gotten into yoyos and #yoyo tricks, and it made me think about when I was his age doing the same thing. I've also seen all of the custom yoyos available in both metal and #3dprinted varieties. I decided to model one up in #freecad to work with some 6701 ball bearings I had leftover from another project. It sleeps, but I think it needs more mass. Now I have a base model to modify and #3dprint however I want! #3dprinting
A quick #yoyo combo. Music by Infinity Shred. https://youtube.com/shorts/sBxspIwVS8o?feature=share
Working on a new bimetal #yoyo design. This is for one of my team members. Sometimes a plain color scheme is useful for evaluating the design, since it lets the other less flashy features shine brighter by comparison.
Did you know you can hire me to design a yoyo for you? It’s true! I’ve designed yoyos for several yoyo companies big and small, and even very small.
I finally played a bit with my #yoyo yey
Here’s a similar yoyo design to the previous one I posted, with some differences that are mostly important to folks who play yoyo. The diameter is much bigger, the inner section is more open, the width is larger by a bit, and the steel weight rings press on from the outside, appearing to wrap over the aluminum. These changes would make it feel much different in the hand and in play.
This #yoyo was designed in #freecad and rendered in #blender3d with the help of the sverchok nodes plugin.
My new #yoyo arrived and I am not home tho :blobcatsadlife:
I got a super cheap MYY T5 :blobcatcomfy:
Re-watching Farrah Siegel's #yoyo routine from the 2007 National Yo-Yo Contest and I'm really blow away. Her song, "Time Warp", fits perfect and is a clever nod to the Time Warp yo-yo trick.
The coolest part is she's two handed yo-yoing without any looping. Obviously there are lots of wraps and tangles, but if you pay attention you'll notice that she's doing Shoot The Moons and Stalls (aka Palm Stalls) instead of traditional loops. I love this style of 2A play.
@brandont @benjaminhollon hey Brandon you can buy a #Yoyo too :blobcatderpy:
Some #yoyo moves to brighten your timeline https://youtube.com/shorts/8bJAuaEElyw?feature=share
Merry Christmas people, I just woke up. I got a #yoyo and many clothes which I like now that I am a responsible adult. But I also got a yoyo :blobcatcomfy:
Working on a yoyo design that mixes different materials for an aesthetic effect - anodized aluminum and wooden rings. I want to work on it some more, but this captures the idea pretty well. Eventually, I might get this manufactured as a special edition design for the yoyo club here in Atlanta.
Yoyo design is my art and I am enjoying it more than ever
(#yoyo designed in #freecad and rendered in #blender3d)
I released a new unresponsive metal yoyo design, the Dynames. I wrote a blog post about it here: https://mk1yoyos.com/2022/12/the-dynames-yoyo/
I don't get it, why do I have friends getting married and having family drama and here I am getting a freaking #yoyo for Christmas :blobcatderpy:
Learning #yoyo tricks turned out to be a satisfying hobby. If anything I am much more interesting at family gatherings now.
Boingy boing mastered, now onto eli hops. #yoyo
I recently got back into #yoyo videos and I kinda want to get one for #christmas as a gift for myself.
Something inexpensive like a Node or an N12...
I wonder if anyone who sees this is into yoyos and knows newer options in the price range :P
A short #yoyo trick filmed with a head mount gopro. Need to get used to filming again.
@BlackAzizAnansi When the doctors, consulting, in one of those small exam rooms are
unmasked (which they were), it shows how much #YOYO
Here's my #introduction
Hiya, I'm Braedo. Late 20s #nonbinary :nonbinary: nerd working in #science (I play with microscopes 🔬)
For hobbies I mostly play #videogames like #TowerofFantasy or rhythm games like #SoundVoltex but I also #yoyo and read #scifi - I'm trying to cook more so I'll post some #food pictures too 😅
Reach out and say hi! I only bite if it's consensual 👀
