Is it me or might he have some requirement that at least half of the characters he plays must have crazy hair?
if you hadn’t heard yet, my boys over at ONE magazine are holding a t-shirt design contest. they enllisted designers from all different corners of the inline world and had them design a tee for ONE. it didn’t have to include “ONE” or even their logo… it just had to be a cool shirt.
the submissions are in… check them out by clicking on the pic above, or HERE. the Exclusives™ got in on the fun too. we’ve got some submissions in there! atleast 3 that i know of, but for the sake of keeping it annonymous, you’ll have to figure it out on your own. vote for the one you would like them to produce now!
Kobe has been promoting the Hyperdunk for a hot minute. He and some of the Lakers have been rolling these kicks. Reggie Miller even talked about how they are the lightest basketball shoes (13 oz to be exact) . This “commercial” reminds me of the old ads he would do with Adidas specifically the one showing his dunking abilities (here). It’s no question that the KB4′s will probably be based on these shoes. a la hypebeast
i dunno about you, but it’s unfortunately been awhile since some “thing” (be it a product, or trick, or whatever) in rollerblading has perked my ears up. check out the clip, and get excited too. the homey dustin latimer is putting together a new video.

, along with denial, and genre are putting together something you should be clearing your schedule for right now. saturday, april 12th they’re throwing another box jam, but this is the real deal. in honor of Richie Stefanacci. a local little ripper who i fortunately got to meet and skate with before he passed away way too early from Ewing Sarcoma (rare, pediatric cancer). his pops put together a foundation, and we’re going to celebrate Richie and raise some money for the foundation.
come out and skate with me, the denial and genre family, brian shima (who’s flying in from cali just for this!) and about a million other kids from be-mag who know what’s up!
i wanna see you out there!… come out, buy some goods (all sales from the day go to the fund, so it’s THAT easy to donate) and i’ll put your pic up on here.
for more info, holler at these websites:

When I found out that James Jean was doing some pieces for Prada, I was excited…not because I wanted to buy a Prada piece that he collaborated with, but instead wanted to see what he would do for them. He did a great job with it and you can see this animation where he did the illustrations for. You might want to download this to your ipod.
Things have been extremely hectic getting Franco to where it is now, with that said I have never lost touch nor have I lost the desire to have some sort of impact in the rolling community. I am now getting all gears in motion for this new video project im working on that you may or may not have heard of called “Nobody Cares.”
The video will star the likes of Rachard Johnson, Chris Haffey, Franky Morales, Murda, Carlos Pianowski, and special appearances from Josh Petty and Aaron Feinberg, along with lots of old and new faces from the Future Prospects crew.
Here is the interesting part. As of right now the only person Franco Shade sponsors is Rachard Johnson, well that is going to change. We are taking video submissions to be no longer than 90 seconds showcasing your skating and individual style/personality. You will post these clips on youtube under “Nobody Cares / ‘your name’ “. After you have posted it, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that it is up and we will look for it. If you do not receive a response from us please try again until you do, as that is the only way you can be sure we have seen your submission.
You have until May 1st to do this. A committee of people involved with this project, myself included, will weed through these all and select a winner. That person will become our next sponsored pro which gives them basically all the same privileges that Rachard has had over the past few years. Along with that you will get your own feature section to go along with the pros that I earlier named in the video itself.
I’m sure there are people out there who could care less about being sponsored by Franco Shade or being in this video. For those of you just move on to the next post and enjoy your day. For the rest of you please take your submissions seriously as you will not have any chance later to add or change your edit. There will be a couple runner ups whose prizes are to be determined at a later date.
If you have any questions, send them to email@example.com
Again, good luck!
