An OG going from GC to CO

Posted in LB-CAM Pics, My Ramblings with tags on February 26, 2010 by lordbrian

          

          This past Saturday I had the hard task of detaching my Ground Control frames from my Valos. I say “hard time” because I have been riding on Ground Control frames since the 1st Generation pair. Whether I experimented with rolling on Kizer, 50-50 or Xsjado I always ended up coming back home to the familiar feel that is GC. But like the saying goes, time for a change. I am a huge supporter of everything rollerblading so it is only right that I support my boys Brian Lewis, Hakeem Jimoh & Billy O’ Neill with their newest joint venture Create Originals http://www.createoriginals.com Continue reading

RODNEY GLENN From Alaska to Long Beach

Posted in Exclusive Interviews with tags , , on February 19, 2010 by lordbrian

         

          When Revolution (http://revolutionskate.com/)  moved out of the wintery Alaska landscape and into the everlasting sunshine of Arizona, it seemed as if the Alaska rollerblading scene went into hibernation. My first thoughts were the whereabouts of a great friend of mine and a skater who definitely helped put Alaska on the map and that is RODNEY GLENN. Rodney is one of those skaters that put his heart, blood and soul into bringing the Alaska scene to the attention of the rolling industry and I knew that I had to find him. Continue reading
