Change of Plans

Posted: September 26, 2014 in Uncategorized

No Missouri State Yo-yo Contest on the 27th as promoted 2 months ago. The venue double booked and cancelled us. This is why you haven’t heard any promoting or any details for Moyo. Looks like we are gearing up for the spring though!

The Festival is the only free outdoor professional theater in St. Louis. Join nearly 3,000 people nightly for the evening’s Green Show, followed by the main stage show.

The annual free production in Forest Park has become one of the most anticipated events of the St. Louis summer season. Highly regarded regionally and nationally, the Festival’s productions feature some of the country’s best actors and have been nominated for numerous awards.

We want you to come enjoy free Shakespeare this summer and meet some of the top St. Louis Yo-Yo players.

Posted: April 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

If you watch you watch Portlandia…..San Fransisco or Portland, what’s the difference these days right? Well, we asked our readers the same question and it turns up the distinction is a fine line.

With the same reverence of Portlandia it will captivate any audience and bring out their true artist! Portlandia quite easily finds the quick wit, intelligent humor and free-style artistry that defines Doc Pop! We hope you enjoy this video.
Yes please and prepare yourself because this IS real-life Portlandia, “When Your Ready Come and Get It!

Ice Carnival 2014

Posted: January 13, 2014 in Uncategorized

Come chill at Star Clipper on Saturday, January 18 for the 2014 Loop Ice Carnival!

One of the best days of the year in The Loop, the Ice Carnival offers carnival games, performers, face painters, a putt-putt pub crawl, a Frozen Buns Run, and more! Every year, this unforgettable day of family friendly festivities gets even better, and this year will not disappoint. Previous years’ favorite events are making a comeback; plus, there will be 18 new, unique events!

As always, Star Clipper will have a pop culture-inspired ice sculpture in front of the store, but we’re not telling what it’s going to be – you’ll just have to come and see it for yourself!

At noon we will have the same familiar furry mascot giving out warm cups of Hot Cocoa. Come in out of the cold for a tasty treat while supplies last!

In addition, we will also be hosting MoYo (the Missouri State Yo-Yo freestyle group), who will perform a synchronized “Fro’s and Yo’s” demonstration between 1pm and 3pm. Check out videos of the group performing at youtube.com/moyounited1. For more information on the Missouri State Yo-Yo freestyle group go to Moyo13.com.

MoYo United

Posted: April 24, 2013 in Uncategorized

MoYo United is our new video team project which includes practice, local performances, competitions, and the teaching side of all things yo-yo, diabolo, and spin-top.  With our first release of videos coming from contest MOYO13 you can go directly to our Youtube channel: MoYo United1 . For extra credit watch the video below from our director…

Dylan Dodson is our newest team member and official videographer for MoYo United, or shall we say “Wizard of Rap?” Dylan will be the first to admit it’s his first time filming yo-yo freestyles at a contest. And we have all been there and actually he is just learning how to “Walk the Dog”, gee whiz he’s a yo-yo virgin too!

When Dylan isn’t giving Free Hugs across America, he enjoys reading, watching Psych, and posting YouTube videos to his YouTube Channel “mybffDyl” Dylan is quick to tell you that he has dozens of fans in his World Famous Party Rap Dance video.  Being the best Seeker in the Midwest, Dylan hopes to take USA to the Quidditch World Cup someday.
