I named this trick “Toilet Paper Roll” because it’s slacky like toilet paper and it has a roll just like what holds toilet paper together. In this tutorial, to make it easier to learn, majority of it is taught from my POV so you can see exactly how it’s supposed to look from your perspective.
Okay so I know what you’re thinking. “Are you serious, an ASMR video???” Well these clips were supposed to be used for a different video but unfortunately I still do not have the audio I need for that video, but I won’t tell you what that video is yet incase it is still going to happen.
Anyways, I always found that the sound of a smooth spinning yoyo was satisfying. So here you go!!! A video of just yoyo tricks with no talking and no music.
Now, this wouldn’t be a LorenzYo Cubing video without some comedy and entertainment!!! “What’s this video’s segment Lorenzo?” , WELL I’M GLAD YOU ASKED!!!
Before I tell you that, let me explain WHY I made this segment. So if you don’t already know, Youtube has created a new policy supposedly based on a federal law, which is kind of strange to me since they only created this policy NOW. But basically, this new policy enforces Youtubers to place either their WHOLE channel, or every individual video into either the “for kids” or the “for adults” category. Now you may be asking “what’s so wrong about that?”. Well in summary, only the “adult” content can make revenue while the “kid friendly” content can’t, which very much bothers me since most of the popular “adult” channels today support “youtube drama” and “beef” with others.
THIS BRINGS ME TO WHAT THE ENTERTAINMENT SEGMENT OF THIS EPISODE IS!!!
As a JOKE, I made parodies of TWO POLAR OPPOSITE shows on television and on the internet. The video starts off with a parody intro to one of the most beloved kid friendly shows on television, “Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood” which is TV Y7. THIS NEW show is called “A RAN DOM Neighborhood” which the intro indicates is TV MA, again as a JOKE, with Geoffery Quilates (RAN DOM 2) doing his version of the iconic Mr. Rodger’s change of clothes choreography. ALL MUSIC for this intro was arranged and recorded by us two.
Right after the intro is another parody segment of a typical “Filthy Frank style” video with Daniel Daligcon (RAN DOM 1) as the host doing his impression of him. If many of you don’t know, Filthy Frank is a very DANK and MEME-ish channel, definitely not for kids, but super funny (at least to me). Some of you may know him NOW as “Joji” since he is now currently a song artist.
After this long intro I FINALLY appear in this video. Before the actual review of the yoyo, I explain a little behind the scenes of the trick video I made for this yoyo. Basically, there was different audio (a different version/cover of “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish” to the original cut which actual went better to the video than what is out right now. But due to some copyright claims I had to change the audio which led to me having to go through the Youtube copyright claim dispute process, WHICH WORKED!!!
The MagicYoyoZ01 Focus is the latest bi-metal yoyo released in 2019 by the company. First off, this yoyo is INSANELY CHEAP for a bi-metal standing at only $39, but the quality definitely exceeds that price point.
This yoyo, by far, is my current all-time favorite MagicYoyo throw at the moment, it has even become my go-to pocket throw. Let me explain why!!!
First of all, in terms of playability and feel, the yoyo is definitely a tad more toward the lighter side(not too much), but the yoyo is not necessarily floaty. The stainless steel rims on the sides of the yoyo stabilize the spin which keeps it from being floaty. So what you have is a very nice all-around yoyo. Speed and horizontal are no problem and the comfortable even shape makes it great for rejections, tech, and slack.
Regular finger grinds are no problem. Talon grinds are great because the way this yoyo was designed, the bi-metal rims don’t go into the inner – face of the yoyo, so the inner – rims are smooth and anodized aluminum. Finger spins on the other hand are only okay since the yoyo has scratchy laser engravings on the face.
OVERALL, the MagicYoyo Z01 Focus is an almost perfect, cheap, all around yoyo that should be in everyone’s collection and I highly recommend it!!!
You may recall that I have unboxed the original version of this HouLight UV light before. You can find that unboxing video by clicking here.
In the original video one of my criticisms about this light is there is no on and off switch. Essentially to turn it on and off you literally need to plug it in the outlet or unplug it. That effort becomes a bit inconvenient specially if you are using often.
This version 2 however is the new and improved version. HouLight took notice of complaint and improved the product by adding an on and off switch on the light. They reached out to me via messenger and asked if I can review the new and improved version and I agreed. If you are in the market for a black light, look no further than the HouLight High Power 20W Ultra Violet UV LED Flood Light. For yoyoing, it will make your strings look super cool and visible.

I so happy on how well received the TopYo x LorenzYoCubing Meta yo-yo have been from the Yo-yo community. In a period of just a few days, the Meta became sold out from YoyoBestBuy. But not to worry, other stores still have stock but am moving fairly quickly as the word is getting out. That is amazing and I am so thankful to you all for your continued support.

The following video was shot during this event which was held on April 12, 2018. The video displays the talent presentation of John Luke aka, my brother doing some beat boxing and yours truly, yes ding a 2 minute yoyo routine.
This talent show is a competition and was well attended by local talent.
Although it is not all yoyo related, it is still pretty cool to watch since the content is full of family and friends. I hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed performing. Please like, comment, share and subscribe. PEACE OUT Y’ALL!!!
In this yoyo exhibition, I used the TopYo Silenus. I brought both the original and the new limited version with the polished rim.
In addition to the featured color ways above, the TopYo Creater come in 9 different color ways. So if you are looking for your first metal yoyo, with long spin sleep times that will not break your wallet, check out the TopYo Creater.
Also something to note, as you improve your skills and go from basic tricks to more intermediate or even advance, you can change out the bearing and boom, you have a good none-responsive yoyo.
