9th Ave. North, Minneapolis


If Roy Orbison and Rod Stewart had a baby (very disturbing thought) with mad rollerblading skillz, he might look like this -- Chris Farmer. Being a career cynic, I did not believe him when he said he got paid for doing unusual things in rollerblades (out of frame are his home brothers, one with a video camera and the other throwing himself at a bridge girder with rollerblades on). I was content with the flat black Rod Stewart 'do, the bolo tie and the Wayfarers. His hair's been black for about eight years. Last year it was quite a bit longer.


He prefers Savers for fashion. But there is so much more....


Naturally I got home and Google-verified and holy unintelligible jargon, he was not making this stuff up. He really does have his own skate stuff, see above. He really does rollerhuck every day, all day. He really does get paid for it. Rollerblading really is crazy different than skateboarding (he said that but i don't really buy it). Observe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcHwv5baoMc. And http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QYc2sfHnSg&feature=related. And to think that I often fall down stairs while wearing shoes and holding the handrail. Wait for it... his style is fearless.
