A video of one of my favourites hobbies...

I've been spinning pens as a hobby since mid-february and it has quickly become one of my favourite things to do during class, on the computer, waiting for the bus, etc.
I've decided to introduce this wonderful hobby to you people, please give comments on what you think. Positive and/or negative comments are welcome. I don't really care if you say I have no life because a lot of my friends have said that but are now sucked into this craze and ask me to teach them tricks.

If you've never used rapidshare before, just click on the free button on the bottom and wait for download.

See if you can spot me in the video ;)

I've been trying my best for like the last year to pull off even the most basic pen tricks...all to no avail. I don't understand how people do it. I guess I just suck at it. AND IM ASIAN TOO GAH! Shame and dishonor I've brought upon my house.

I say you have no life.

(Come on, you saw it coming).

That's pretty neat, though. I gave the movies on pentrix.com a try, and after about half an hour ( :S ) I can do the thumbaround right about 1/3th of the time. Strangely enough, I get better results when I'm not looking directly at my hand.

I am so sucked in.
 
Yes, its a nice party trick, but i agree with others. To learn to do that would take way to much actual concentration. on a pen... and your hand...
There are more productive things to do with that hand, such as hold a can of beer.

It takes a lot of practice. But I don't do anything at school anyways so I have hours of practice every day.

What do you guys think about my combo? :D

Ah, well, it says I need to wait one hour. Whatever, I guess I'll just check this tomorrow or something.

Wow.

I found it funny that the guy doing the "Do Not Try This at Home" shiz had the nickname SubParSpinner.

He's not too good with the pen spinning. Too slow in my opinion, but his other stuff is whack.
Come on guys, tell me what you think of my combo, I need to make improvements for next video.

Thats cool, I think I'll stick with Juggling though :D
Oh, what do you juggle? And on what level?

Watched the video, your combo looks nice, but could use a bit more flow in it. Kind of static in some places, but still very skillful.
