UUU stands for the Unbelievably Ugly Uniform.
I've been wearing it to work for years, but its only when i filmed this that i realised just how vile it really is!
Its like a navy-blue pumpkin with legs!!
Fortunately, the eetsit in my pocket is the yin to its horrible, horrible yang!
The first little combo is for the sheer "letting go" joy of 5A (counterweight) yo-yoing!!!
I have no idea what the second one is called (please enlighten me if you know...), but it looks really good in its catapult kind of way... And that is the one i will talk you through...
Jump to the last step for a slow-mo video of it. It really helps!
Step 1: "Lasso Loops" (because I Don't Know If This Trick Already Has a Name)
Start out with a double or nothing, then block the string with your middle finger and bounce the yo-yo back over it, and back onto the string.
Let it all hang off your non-throwhand finger.
Step 2: The Mount
Step 3: The End of the Mount
Step 4: Now We Are Ready to Begin...
Step 5: The Lasso Bit
Over-emphasizing the throwing movement does help.
Make sure to send it straight so that the string lands in the yo-yo gap.
Step 6: Loop Round the Yo-yo
The rest of the string loop will keep going round.
As soon as you get to this point, release the pinched string above the yo-yo, so that it lowers into this new loop of string.
Step 7: And Back Again...
Repeat ad nauseum...
