Joey Chase Quits Psyko Clothing Through Twitter?

October 31, 2009


The first word from ONE Magazine’s twitter

Well if you hopped on the bandwagon of Twitter you might have seen this little piece of news earlier in the week. ONE Magazine announced that Joey Chase, Psyko Clothing’s newest rider, doesn’t skate for Psyko anymore. Apparently no one knew about this, not even Psyko Clothing.


It’s a childish move to not let the company you’re riding for know directly that you moved on and to have someone else announce it for you over the internet for the world to see before the company knows, is for a lack of a better term, unprofessional. Luckily, Psyko took a more mature approach and instead of lashing back with an expected stupid statement the company simply wrote this response via the Psyko blog, “Well as you all know Joey Chase is no longer riding for Psyko and as you all found out same did we, though twitter. We wish him the best of luck keep ripping” – psykoclothing. Seeing Psyko’s future clothing line plans I’m sure this minor mishap won’t effect their success at all.

Kevin Dowling and Jamie Olmstead Premiere Footage Tape

October 30, 2009

Kevin Dowling and Jamie Olmstead have premiered their project titled, Footage Tape, which is an online high definition web series that has set the standards for any piece of online media dedicated to rollerblading. Not only does Footage Tape provide great footage of some of rollerblading’s top pros doing the sickest tricks with multiple angles but it covers each section as a news report which is refreshing to see. This first episode is approximately 31 minutes long and is better than most videos that are out now. Footage Tape provides great coverage on the Panhandle Pow Wow and the Boots, Burgers, and Hammers competition as well as scene reports on Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, and New York City.

The NYC report rounds off the video. Saving the best for last? I think so. Kevin opens up the NYC section showing his love for our scene, and the I Roll NY site (I love you Kevin!) as well as dedicating the opening footage to our lost friend Brian “Cozmik” Scott which I’m truly grateful for. The NYC footage goes on to cover one of our many Lets Roll NY sessions, our Last Man Standing competition, and various pros skating our city. Thank you to Kevin and Jamie for not only representing our local scene amazingly, but rollerblading in general amazingly. Please show your support, just how Kevin has, and visit the Footage Tape website. “FootageTape is the first ever HD online rollerblading web series created by Kevin Dowling and Jamie Olmstead. This episode features skating from the likes of David Sizemore, Julian Bah, Michael Braud, Rob Guerrero, Tim Taylor, Adam Mcmanus, Montre Livingston, Billy Oneill, Adam Ehalt, Walt Austin, Jon Jon Bolino, Chris Smith, Cody Porche, Jon Ortiz and more” – Footage Tape.

Leah Finnegan and Jack Mirkinson of the Colombia University paper, The Brooklyn Ink, have written an article on our lost friend Brian “Cozmik” Scott where they featured our memorial session and the group photo from photographer Cesar Macay. “…Sunday the friends who knew him as Cozmik, the peerless inline roller blader, gathered to raise money…they came from across the city to the Coleman Skate Park under the Manhattan Bridge to honor his memory in the element in which they knew him best. In the skating world, friends know each other through the way they move across concrete. You are what you can do. And so between laps of the park, Scott’s friends remembered with awe how he navigated from ground to ledge to rail to air and back on his skates” – The Brooklyn Ink. Read the entire article Skaters Remember Fallen Friend. Thanks to Leah and Jack for writing the article and attending our event.
