This episode of PopCast was filmed at the California State Yo-Yo Contest. I had the chance to talk to Michael Ferdico, Bryan Figueroa, JD, and many more while I was there.
Last week I checked out the Cal State Yo-Yo Contest and chatted with lots of cool people. Most of this footage will be used for my next episode of PopCast, but I had some great interviews that I thought I’d release as standalone videos.
The first of these is a chat with JD Steel about the changes in the yo-yo industry and how YoYoBESTBUY will continue to evolve. Watch it here and help sponsor future episodes by support me on Patreon.
In this episode of PopCast, I talk to my old friend Kyle Machulis about his newest project at Nonpolynomial Labs. Inspired by Johnny Lee‘s fantastic Wii-hacks, Kyle has created a yo-yo controlled musical interface using Max/MSP and a modified Torch circuit board. In the video, Kyle talks about the project and let’s me make some yo-yo core.
You can check out Kyle’s “WiiYo” post on www.nonpolynomial.com. Skin The Gerbil never sounded so good.
Due to several conflicts, Joseph and I were unable to record the results right away, but I hope you find the results worth the wait.
Also on this episode is Joseph’s tips for picking up chicks and Doc shows just about every one handed version of stall you (by “you” I mean “me”) can imagine.
On this fantastic PopCast, I disscuss the art of stalling. Stalls are one of yo-yoing’s newer moves and involves stalling the yo-yo as it returns back to your hand.
In this episode I give the talented Josheph Harris a two handed stall challenge and one week to see what he can come up with it.
My special co-host this week is the infamous Boxthor. Unfortunately, this episode had to be slightly edited due to the length of Joseph’s segment.
Welcome to the first episode of Doctor Popular’s yo-yo video blog.
This episode runs a bit long, but that’s because Doc is used to doing 45 minute audiocasts, so six minutes really isn’t that bad.
