Movie Review: Skatetown USA

October 5, 2011


Since our roller disco I’ve reignited my love of all things disco and have been attempting to get my hands on any movies related to my passion – skating and disco!! Skatetown USA was the first on my hit list.   This movie was made in 1979 during the height of the American roller skating […]

Ocsober – Chicks of Anarchy

October 3, 2011


If you’ve read our previous blogs you’ll notice we like to challenge ourselves to improve our fitness and our abs – not always successfully! This time it’s different, I’m making myself totally accountable to you! Each year I like to give a little back by undertaking some form of charity fundraiser.  It started in 2009 when I joined […]

Photo Friday: A Nice Night for a Roll

September 30, 2011


The recent weather improvement inspired Erica, Bundy and I to venture out yet again.  This time for a skate along my local running trail that has recently been concreted.  Given our achievement of our goal of “using skates as transport” we thought we’d skate to the start of the track rather than driving – it’s not far, […]

In […]

RollerCon – A Quadzilla Crush!

September 12, 2011


Las Vegas is crazy, loud and dazzlingly brilliant – just like RollerCon. I attended as a roller derby wannabe.  A starry-eyed hopeful, an aussie chick on wheels hoping to return home with mad skills and a burning desire (and ability) to hip check the world off my track! Once I figured it out how to navigate the […]

As Em stated in her previous post, this weekend is THE grand final!  Hopefully, you’ve entered your tips for the game that will decide which team gets third place.  If not, do it NOW click here!  Do it!  Go on, I’ll wait… You’re back!!  Right – down to business. The battle to determine 2011’s Roller […]
