Day 347 – Gravedigga Shuffle
As 365 started winding down, I realized I’m not done with it.
I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a pretty huge pain in the arse to keep this going. I really underestimated the amount of work it was going to take to create, film, score, edit, and upload a trick every single day. You’ll notice that I ran out of “old tricks” pretty early on in the process. I honestly thought I had a lot more than I did. Ha.
But it’s been fun, and I feel like constant content is one of the things that keeps yoyoing interesting…there is ALWAYS something new coming out and that’s a huge part of the fun.
So 365yoyotricks.com will be continuing in 2012 with a few changes:
1. The videos will be moving from YouTube to Vimeo. Partly because I like Vimeo’s quality better, partly because there are fewer problems with nasty commenters, but mostly because YouTube’s copyright system is ridiculous. I’ve had videos removed that I had music rights to but didn’t prove it fast enough, and I really don’t like having other people’s ads served on my videos without having a say in the matter.
2. More merch! I’m working on some t-shirt designs now, there will be new stickers, and possibly even some 365yoyotricks.com editions of popular yo-yos.
And the biggest announcement:
3. More players.
I had a lot of fun creating all these tricks this year, but I want 365yoyotricks.com to become more than just my own personal outlet. So I’m bringing on FIVE players that I love to watch, and each of them will be contributing one trick per week. So for 2012, you’ll get two tricks a week from me, and five tricks a week from a roster of players that I think you’ll be pretty excited about.
Thanks so much for all the support, thanks to the National Yo-Yo Museum for giving me the “Trick Innovator Of The Year” award for this project (and a few other little things I may have done in the past), and thanks to the players who have come on board to make this project even more amazing. I promise….you folks are gonna be stoked.
New trailer for “World On A String”, the yo-yo documentary by Dawn Schwartz.
I redid my main yo-yo case tonight. Once in a while I get OCD and de-string everything and re-organize. I have a second case that is overflow and a few sentimental pieces…although it’s mostly FAST 201’s that I use for demos.

I’D LIKE TO OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE THAT I’M JOINING THE CARIBOU LODGE TEAM!
Ok, not really. 😛 But I did get this great yo-yo in the mail today from Chris Mikulin, owner of CLYW. Had a really nice time playing with it, so I thought I would throw him some love with a big ‘ol CLYW logo for today’s video. Thanks Chris & Jensen!
Song is “Fortune” by Deadsure. They appear courtesy of No Idea Records. And they’re Canadian!
Yo-yo used is the Canvas by CLYW.
