Emenai and The Art of Pen Spinning


Introducing Emenai.  According to his sparsely populated Dailymotion profile, he is a 17-year-old male in Oftersheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.  He registered with Dailymotion on October 23, 2007.  Since then he has amassed a noteworthy underground following thanks, in part, to an unparalleled online charisma and, in part, to his library of video clips that document a preternatural dexterity.

He has yet to speak or show his face.  As of February 11, 2009 – a year-and-a half old in Dailymotion years – he exists in the minds of his followers as only a video game being played by a master gamer or else as a pair of milky hands that, we must assume, manipulate the video game controls.

Here is one piece from his library, a sixteen-second clip on the art of pen spinning, Emenai freestyle.  This German has Hong Kong penspinners analyzing his finger and finger-slot charts to create what we might think of as the Cliff Notes, Tabs, or A Primer for his pen spinning combos.  I wish them luck:
