“This edit was made commemorating my section in the Senate team video: Day of the Rope.

That was made about 15 years ago. I thought it would be cool to use the same song that Arlo Eisenberg chose for me back then.

I’ve had the greatest times of my life blading, and plan to roll for as long as the body can handle.” –Alex Miranda.

Filmed and Edited by Aarin Gates with help from Demetrios George and Quinn Feldman.

AM 4 life… Alex Miranda, lots of people have an opinion on who Alex is. Some think they know him, few actually do. I’ve known him since we were kids, 12 or 13 years old. When he was still rocking a rat-tail under his A’s cap and wearing a Bash Bros. t-shirt.

The first thing we had in common was our favorite baseball player, Jose Canseco… this was before steroids were really illegal. We became friends, and began chillin’, playing football, baseball, BMXing, or whatever the flavor of the month was. In ‘93–’94, rollerblading began to consume us.

We saw a great opportunity to be original and have our own crew that did something no one else did at that time. Shortly after that, we were known throughout the city as “Bladers.” Alex had a style that stood out from the rest of us. When Alex skates he strives for perfection, just landing isn’t good enough.

There’s a sense of unity when Alex locks on a grind; it seems that he attaches himself to it, while making sure his shirt and hat always match. Alex was getting into the OC scene, skating with Randy Spizer, Arlo Eisenberg and the Senate guys. He was eventually placed on the Senate team, putting his name next to skaters like Louie Zamora, Josh Petty, TJ Webber and B Love. What most people don’t know about Alex is his life outside of rollerblading.

I’m sure that there are kids out there who can relate to family issues, health problems and trouble with the law. Alex has had a fair share of ups and downs, but through the fog, he has emerged with a new perspective on life. Alex is a person who can make you laugh one minute and maybe get under your skin the next, but one thing that’s consistent with Alex is that he is always himself, whether you like it or not. – Carlos Kessell
