Posted in Full Online Movies, In-Depth Reviews, My Ramblings, Support Rollerblading with tags , , on February 2, 2015 by lordbrian

In a blading world that is filling up rapidly with VOD sections there is a hidden gem that recently dropped with a “FREE” to view price tag that is putting others to shame.

I dare you to watch this and not be motivated to go out and shred outside of your comfort zone. Let’s dig in!

My Thoughts On My JC Rowe 2.0 Custom Skate (JC Rowe 1.5?)

Real Hip-Hop (RHH): Kendrick Lamar BET Cypher 2013

Posted in My Ramblings, Real Hip-Hop, Respect Due with tags , on November 30, 2013 by lordbrian

Definitely a must-listen, especially with a subliminal dart or 2 aimed at Aubrey.

Being that my son woke up early today and wanted to use his scooter I decided to take him to the new skatepark in Ozone Park, Queens. I’m not sure if it has an official name yet but it is worth a trip to check out some of the fun lines that can be done if you have a skaters’-eye. In between skating while my son scooted I took some random park shots so you can check out some of the obstacles. Continue reading
