Hobby Followup - Popsicle Stick House Roof

Today we are posting our most requested how-to video, the roof for our Popsicle stick house.

'How to Make a Popsicle Stick House' is our most watched video, with nearly ten times as many views as our second most popular movie. Many readers and viewers have requested we explain how to make the roof to our house, so we finally got around to doing it! Basically, we attempted to make the roof in the original video, but failed horribly and cut that part out of the film. Now you can finally see how it is done.

-18 Popsicle sticks
-Roofless Popsicle stick house

To make your own roof, notch cut 16 of the sticks and pair them together. Use the remaining two sticks to connect the 8 pairs. Just watch the video.

Have fun and check back next week for more hobbies.

City Life

Click any image to zoom in.

The sign reads, "Will Ferrell Semi-Pro."

His saxophone was singing the tune to "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands."

In the city, you can't help but look up.

A lost Asian tourist.

The "Civic Opera Bvilding." Yes, building is spelled with a 'v'. I guess they hoped nobody would notice.

There is always a protest going on in urban centers. They just become part of the noisy background.

The Museum of Contemporary Art.

They told us we couldn't take pictures inside the museum, but we knew better. This masterful video projection simply can't be expressed in words or a still image.

The rolling mountains make a great addition to the city skyline.

A quiet match of ping pong amidst the urban sprawl.

Hobby 11: Listening to Music

Our hobby today is the classic way to spend time, listening to music. According to our sources, hearing (or audition) is one of the traditional five senses; music is an art form whose medium is sound.

With the recent formation of our band, it became increasingly important to listen to music. By listening, we can gain inspiration and insight into the creation of music.

-Great way to relax
-Engage in small talk about favorite bands

Basically, we are too busy in the studio writing and recording our first single. Loop Hobbies will have more updates later this week when we have more free time.
