The Art of Storytelling Jon Julio Article Now Online

November 7, 2010

The New York City based graffiti / action sports / street culture magazine, The Art of Storytelling, featured rollerblading legend Jon Julio in their premiere issue and the article is now online. Issue 2 will feature an interview with legend Arlo Eisenberg so stay tuned. In the meantime check out the TAOST Jon Julio article here.

“…During this time period, I was also working with a bunch of music artists like Sage Francis, Sole from Anticon, and Masta Killa from the Wu-Tang. I was making a DVD surrounding all those artists and rollerblading. I was organizing concerts/shows with these artists for skating related events. On the flip side of it all, the popularity of blading was at an all time low. Blading was dropped from the X Games and TV exposure was none existent. I was only getting older and I was at a point where I needed to pick a direction to go” – Jon Julio.

50/50 Juice Full Online Video

October 11, 2009

Juice was 50/50’s video release in early 2000. There was a bit of gossip about the video and it’s length because at the time, and still today, videos would range from 30-60 minutes in length but Juice was only 15 minutes in length and for good reason. 50/50 specifically made the length of their video shorter in comparison to others to do exactly what the title says, get yourself juiced. The purpose of the video was to have something to watch quickly before you go skating to get you…well…juiced to go skate. With names like Chris Farmer, Jon Julio, Randy Spizer, Rachard Johnson and of course New York City’s Dustin Hallerin, the video did the job well and now it’s available online for your viewing pleasure.
