Watch as pen spinners Ian Jenson and 吳宗諺 (PPM) perform some epic pen spinning, complete with a few great slow motion moments that really showcase what’s going on. This short from Taiwan’s Kuma Films makes us want to get some weighted spinning pens, but anyone can start practicing with an everyday pencil, too: How to Spin a Pencil Around Your Thumb.

GIFs not your style? Check out my last minute astronomical announcement song:

Currently still cloudy.
