I am in a fantasy football league: the Blading Football League, with a bunch of other older rollerbladers (some older than others), Jon Julio is the Commissioner. The penalty for getting last place is you have to post a skating edit. A couple of seasons ago I (allegedly) finished last. This is my attempt to settle my dues. PS: I won the league this year. My team is Los Fancy Boys. We are the reigning BFL Champs. - Arlo Eisenberg.
Todd and Joey watch the 1996 rollerblading video “Fast Shoes” by T-Bone Films. Produced by Craig Caryl, camera man: Jose Cuervo, cinematography: Evan Stone.
Arlo Eisenberg was once dubbed the face and voice of his generation and his story sounds like the best 90’s movie that was never made. Arlo, the punk rock kid from Texas drops out of the University of Texas and moves to California to become a star in a sport that isn’t really a sport yet. He arrives on Venice Beach, gets “found” and blows up to be a global sensation who lives a life that is every 13 year old’s fantasy. Along the way he stirs up a national controversy, hosts the X-Games and rides off into a world of graphic design. - Michael Powell.

I’m honored to have been interviewed for Michael Powell’s “The Powell Movement” podcast. We went pretty deep into the history books for this one, like all the way back to how my parents met and what I was doing before I discovered rollerblades. But it really does give some insight into the very early days of rollerblading and my career. Enjoyed the chat very much. Hope you enjoy it as well. - Arlo Eisenberg.
