Jim Jones interview with The Source

January 3rd, 2007

jim jones

Put your biases aside and really read this interview. Maybe it’ll help some of y’all to understand what The Diplomats are really doing. It’s more than music, baby.

Check this transcription of the Jim Jones interview with The Source.

Jim Jones, who recently announced the creation of Dipskate, a rollerblading team. Don’t miss the comments at the bottom of the page!

[...] When it comes to Jim Jones, expect the unexpected. “Some people look at him and say he’s a criminal,” explains Hip-Hop mogul Damon Dash, who has known the artist since Jim was 7. “But he has an executive job, he directs his own videos. He can take care of his own destiny, and he’s always up in somebody’s school.” Some didn’t think he’d ever leave the ‘hood, but eight years ago Jim Jones became the co-founder of The Diplomats with Cam’ron.

Two years later, he started directing Dip Set videos, and in 2004, he unveiled his purple liquor “Sizzurp”, which came with its own mixtape, Sippin’ on Sizzurp Vol. I: Getting Drunk on Music. Jones released his own DVD, signed to Koch Records as a solo artist, put out two back-to-back albums (2004′s On My Way to Church and 2005′s Harlem… Diary of a Summer) and now a third, Hustler’s P.O.M.E.

Last year he founded a new label, Byrdgang Records, and also recently announced his sponsorship of his extreme sports team, affectionately called Dipskate. Next up in 2007 is a family line of clothing called Nostic.[...]

10 MINUTES: With Kaya Turski

kaya turski

Check this interview of Kaya Turski, pro skater and freestyle skier.

What’s going on with your rollerblading career and how has it helped your skiing?

Women’s rollerblading is really slow right now, so I’m taking it easy in the skating world. Lately I’ve actually been skating vert, something I was never really doing seriously, so I can try to bring that to skiing pipe.

Rollerblading helps me a lot for skiing with balance on rails and landings. If you can land on skates, chances are you can land on something 20 times the size of skates. [...]

Wheel Anti-Reversal Device

December 31st, 2006

standing on a curb

Wheel Anti-Reversing Technology was initially developed by Bruce Honaker to give beginning skaters a safe advantage while learning the basic skills necessary to inline skate. The novice can keep both skates constantly on the ground, and parallel to each other. This creates a very comfortable and stable method as he/she shuffles forward to gain momentum.

As the novice becomes more confident, the “baby strides” come more naturally. Soon, the regular dynamics of skating are developed and the device may be removed or disengaged.

If i’m not wrong the idea is to prevent the skates from going backward. I think this can be a nice idea for beginning skaters.. Ok, i allready see the feedback ‘we, hardcore skaters do it backwards too’, yes true but the idea is maybe to ease the start of future skaters, we definately need young blood in the scene.

By the way, how does this work (maybe in the bearings ? i saw no image explanation of the device).

Thanks to Too Fast
