Indiana Inline's 100th Post Celebration and The 2008 Brass Knuckle Beatdown Edit!

OMG!!! 100 Posts in less than a case you couldn't tell I'm making a concious effort to post news and media as much as possible so do your part and let me know if you've got anything that should be up on the main page. I was planning on putting up one of Josh Mayo's sections from the Year In Review DVD but I'm having some issues converting the files to the propper format so that could be a day or 2 away. Anyways, finally got all the footy for the Blade Jam so expect an edit within a week. Keep checking and using the site to your advantage so we can see another 100 posts and another and another and so on. Peace.

Owen for day one...Alex for day 2...BNB coming soon.

New blader in Lafayette, IN

Say hi to Rich everybody...Rich is a brand new blader and is new to Lafayette so hit this dude up and skate with him! He just drove all the way out to Indy to get his first pair of blades together and for a free 1st pair they aren't looking too bad. I've still got plenty of boots to be put together in the garage if anybody new needs some skates so hit me up!

Available for only $5 in person or $7 shipped to your door. Email me if you're interested in a copy...I'll barter if needed. However, if you are broke like most of us you can wait to watch it online. Starting in the next few days I will be uploading a section a day (approximately) from the video onto vimeo. Look out for Owen Nevins' 2008 Mini-View dropping first. The Blade Jam story will be up more than likely by tomorrow...I'm just waiting for Be-magto put it up before I post the longer(more photos) version on Indiana Inline. Stay tuned.

Indiana Inline Year In Review: Volume I DVD news and The 2009 Bittercold Showdown Edit Finally Arrives!

Bittercold Showdown 2009 By Indiana Inline from Indiana Inline

A month or two ago I had an interesting idea that is finally seeing the light of day. My idea was to start a yearly video magazine for Indiana Inline to show the highlights of everything that went down for that year. Included in this volume will be everything that has already been showcased online and a bunch of other bonuses. In no particular order the sections will be: Bittercold Showdown 2009, Brass Knuckle Beatdown 2008 by me(and possibly Josh Mayo's as well), KY Battle 2008, South Bend Spotlight by Daniel Kinney, Bittercold Showdown 2009 Box Session, Alex Braunagel 2008 Mini-View, Alex Braunagel 2008-2009 Profile by Josh Mayo, Owen Nevins 2008 Mini-View, and Seth Andrews 2008 Mini-View. The biggest news on the DVD is that the trailer for Tiny Beautiful Things will be on it as well…it will eventually go online but for a short while it will only be available on the DVD.

These are just the confirmed sections in Volume I...I am hoping that Josh Mayo will have time to get one more section finished and if there is anybody else with any crew edits, profiles, or contest edits that would like to contribute please let me know because I would like to pack as much onto the DVD as possilbe. Anyone seriously considering contributing keep in mind that anything submitted must be received by next Sunday(6/14) at the absolute latest to make sure there is enough time to have the DVD ready for the Blade Jam on the 20th. Anyone interested in a Blue-Ray copy must contact me prior to the comp. Feel free to email me at with submissions, questions, or funny cat pictures.

Today's Indianapolis Monday Night Skate(6/8) will be a Street Only Session

It was supposed to rain today but it looks like we'll be alright. If anybody is down for a street session I'm working on getting some people together in Broad Ripple since there are lots of untapped spots in the area. Give me a call or send me an email if you want to come out. Check back later today for the 2009 Bittercold Showdown edit that's finally going up and more news on the Indiana Inline Year in Review: Volume I DVD.
