Pens are some pretty crazy shit! #17





So right now im sooooooooooo tiered, last night a friend of mine decided it would be awesome to keep me up while nonsensically ranting about how his life could have been so much more... Till 6am...
But enough about me not sleeping! Today's video's are of Pen spinning!

This stuff is crazy super awesome and i really just cant get enough of it... But that could just be the inner Asian in me trying to escape...


"Pen spinning is a form of object manipulation that involves the deft manipulation of a writing instrument with one's hands. Although it is often considered a form of self-entertainment (usually in a school/office setting), multinational competitions and meetings are sometimes held. It is a form of contact juggling. It can also be classified as a sport. Pen spinning is known as "pen mawashi" (compare for example Mawashi geri, "round-kick") or, more disparagingly, "r┼Źnin mawashi" "college student spinning" in Japan where the pastime has been popular since at least the 1970s, and where the Pen Spinning Association Japan is now dedicated to promoting the aspiring art form. While its origins remain unclear, pen-twirling is quickly gaining international popularity through on-line video sharing and forums. According to Masaki Tsukada, chairman of the Japanese pen spinners, pen spinning now has dedicated movements in South Korea and the United States. "

  4. I tried to learn pen spinning once, but I couldn't perform the simplest tricks and got frustrated. Maybe it's because of my short fingers.
