Posted:yeah, thats sites been around for some time now.

if you download a video called:Spin Cities 3/19/01 (MPEG, 37 Mb) it features old school HoP dude called Bassman on his powerskips.

check out docs own site the glass lab he makes the sweetest videos.

I'm Kael, a student of Myron and Wes from that first video.
My own wrapping vid while I was still living in Chicago-
Wes does post on HoP rarely. His name is Mixinluv2u.

For more videos like this, hit us up at www.glowsticking.com, where wes, wil, scooch, myron, and I post and check out our glowstringing/poi media center.

Thanks for the complements all. wink

Haha! I don't wanna sound like I'm busting on you, because obviously it is easy to miss things when you don't know where to look. But it is still funny just because the number of yo-yo videos is totally crazy, especially in the last couple of years. smile I can barely keep up with them lately.

The best place to look for new yo-yo videos right now is this site, which is blog-ish listing of new stuff. Almost 15 videos listed in last week or so:


Was glad to see this stuff pop up in a thread. Doc Pop and Glasseye's sites are both great, and good people to boot.

And Kael and Wes and all of you are very inspirational for glowstringing. smile



P.S. In the East Japan videos at the top of the yoyonews.com, check out Hiraku Fujii's freestyle. He usually has a lot of poi-ish moves like hyperloops and wraps in his freestyles.
