Found Poetry in my Email

Kinda slow here lately posting-wise so... I've been keeping a file of odd phrases in spam emails when they caught my eye for a while. Together they made a little random poem. (No "poetry" tag for InlineCafe?)

Strange Convergence: My Skates on Skatebay RSN2 eBay Most Watched

Ha! What Fun. Silly fun, but still. I put some Verducci V-Tek Size 9 (Size 41 EU) skate boots and some off-road inline Rollerblade Coyote Size 10 (which RB call 43 EU) up for a penny each on eBay auctions. I thought they would get some attention, but wondered how much. Well looking at the Skatebay most watched skate items which are listed on the bottom of RSN2 pages (at least for now; i hope to make the display rotate "some day"), I saw both of my skate ads (with the magenta borders). That's truly some silly fun to see different things I'm doing mixed together on the web. No it's not a huge irony or coincidence but it was still a nice surprise. OK. That's all. I guess I'd better pack and get over to my parents' house to be with family and wait for turkey and hmmm...graaavy. Skateylove y'all and Happy Turkey Day. Below are links if my skates aren't showing up on the hot list any more. Blake

Derek Parra on a slideboard

 I am not sure how many of you know about Andrew's Love's blog (which is awesome by the way: http://www.andrewlove.org/blog) but recently he has posted a video of Derek Parra doing a slide board session with NC-based Amber Yrbor. I highly recommend checking it out - it is not only that 

NYPD's proposed rules for group skates / bike rides

This means us!!

I have changed the terminology from biking to skating in the press-release from Transportation Alternatives to underscore the impact of the proposed new rules on our community. Theoretically, every point applies to skaters, even the requirement to carry a bell.

The NYPD already has the rules needed to keep order in the streets. They have traffic laws, prohibitions against disorderly conduct, and a host of other rules. In short, there is no need for the police to create new rules to suppress non-vehicular transportation.

Speaker Christine Quinn is supporting the new rules. Make sure she knows that you don't by using the links provided. Alan has given you her answer to the initial notice, when you get that first answer, send another note of concerned opposition. Write also to your council-member.

See you on the streets!

Does being a Brave Soldier help road rash?

I was browsing a list of products on the Bike Nashbar website and something called "Brave Soldier First Defense" caught my eye. Blurb says that it was "originally designed to treat road rash at bikes races," and that it "cleanses and removes debris with a powerful, yet soothing antiseptic wash that doesn’t sting."

Eddy Matzger goes to court for skating the Blue Ridge Pkwy

Carol Patch of DC has been circulating this appeal to help Eddy Matzger challenge the ban to skating on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Contact her for more information on the court date and requirements for submitting an affidavit.

Hilly Hundred 2007, Bloomington, IN

2007.10.13 7:00 am
2007.10.14 3:00 pm

Danny's InlineNC write-up, after skating this Bloomington, IN, cycling event back in 2005, got me dreaming about taking part in 2006. Well I completely missed it. It was the weekend right after A2A. However, I'd like to try to make it in 2007, because the course sounds and looks outrageously hilly, and hilly = fun, right?! If you go to their homepage and click on "2005 photo contest winners" you will see what I mean about the hills. By the way, what a great idea to help promote an event: a photo competition.
