Returning from the premiere of their first DVD, Extra Credit, The Imagyne crew hits I Roll NY with another teaser edit. It seems as if there was a bit of confusion going on and as response Joseph Perez responded with this cool edit. Sean Grossman’s opening lines are edited like the previous KFC videos which brings some nostalgia. The edit also includes team riders, Lonnie Peterson, Pat Irwin, and others. “For all of them strictly haters that felt some type of relief on friday when i posted me disbanding my team, what i really meant to say was i was disbanding my team on socom. so for all those who hit me up with negative in your face type stuff. go back to frowning because we never went nowhere. this will be my last edit with my panasonic dvx100b because ive found a better much more quality friendly camera that i would like to present my fellow fans with. cant we all just …. get along” – Joseph Perez. Get the full story at the Imagyne That site.

I know I wouldn’t mind seeing a NYC skater taking first place at an NJ comp!
A lot of people have been questioning the current status of B Unique, and with it’s known site (the one previously linked to on I Roll NY) being shut down it seemed as if the company vanished over night. I contacted Brian Perry, aka Lord Brian, to get a status update but nothing was confirmed or denied. Doing a little research of my own I found that B Unique currently has a new site up and running. The new site, www.buniqueandcompany.com showcases the latest B Unique line, unseen products, contact info, and a mission statement. “b.unique and company is a lifestyle brand that takes pride in designing as globally conscious and free spirtied as the individual today…our mission is to immerse ourselves with the air of cultural independence by surrounding ourselves with forward thinking individuals who reflect this same progression like I Roll NY” – B Unique.

Dave Lang is a NYC local who made his appearance in our LMS competition and showed us his big tricks and hammers. This edit includes Dave and Wake Schepman skating the Hackettstown skatepark in New Jersey. Expect to see more of Dave in the future. Thanks to JB for the submission.
“All right, all right, all right. You saw the online Vibralux edits, right? Well, AJ just hooked ya’ll up with this m4v version of all three edited together, and formatted for your iPods. Quality looks proper on Quicktime through the ‘puter and we can imagine it’ll look damn good on your 3″ LCD. Download and enjoy” — ONE.
This edit is over two years old and has very rarely been seen. Yannes Sootes and Sebastian Michalski were, and still are, one of the best skaters from the Brooklyn, NY area. You may say I’m partial due to me being born and raised in Brooklyn but if you take a close detailed look at the last trick in this edit you will be just as amazed as I was. Besides Yannes’ switch up at the end, he also pulls off a top acid on a chest high rail in Chinatown. Sebastian also pulls off some clean and smooth tricks that are just as impressive. Hoping Yannes and Sebastian will step back into the lime light, John Alcantra submits his edit to I Roll NY.

The Art of Storytelling is a new publication dedicated to street culture and underground lifestyles such as ours. Their first issue features Jon Julio, which was posted on I Roll NY earlier last week. As it turns out, TAOST, has some deep roots in the rollerblading industry. Not to give too much away, A few people involved with TAOST have been involved with one of inline skating’s biggest magazine’s in the past. Tomorrow is the premiere party for their first issue and our rollerblading community needs to be represented correctly. This is a 21 and over event so if you’re of age you are obligated to come out and let The Art Of Storytelling know that our sport and community is strong and striving.
