just....absolutely fuck yeah.
my friend knows someone that does this. what a woman.
she posts up videos on Facebook.
It looks really fun.
I keep meaning to go and watch but then I always end up forgetting about it.
That's my story.
i think we should both go...blag me an invite? we could hook up with derby girls!

smash the state, yeah?

More hype than substance for a very small subculture which then blows up and kinda goes mainstream before being packaged and marketed into oblivion by some big companies looking to buy in some cred.
The film Whip It (aside: was it any good?) can probably counted as the 'year zero'. Expect to see a saturation of rollergirl style mobile phone company adverts replacing the current twee folksy ones within six months.
Fun while it lasted though, eh?.
I'm tempted to go mainly due to my preconception that all the women involved in the Roller Derby scene look like they should be on the Suicide Girls website. I will probably be proven wrong and spend some minutes faced with the spectacle of loads of chubbies rolling around Meadowbank before I leave to go to the pub in the huff.
it hardly looks like a high speed, hi octane danger sport. just looks like the step aerobics class has branched out.
*with some chuff.
I was expecting something like Rollerball. What I got was a roller disco for ugly nobheads.
