Yearbook Yourself

Yearbook Yourself photos.

I thank god for my naturally strait hair & Kirk Original glasses. Note back in the 80’s I did have a perm, but I don’t think I ever looked this dorky in any of my yearbook photos.

Whip It Trailer…

July 16, 2009

Whip It Movie Trailer !!!

View trailer :: Whip It Movie Written by Shauna Cross & directed by Drew Barrymore.

Riding Giants, Dogtown & Z boys, Thrashin, Gleaming the Cube… It’s about time someone made a movie about women & indie sports. As a girl who has skateboarded and snowboarded since the 1990’s it’s exciting news to finally have a film that focuses on women & action sports. After watching the trailer, I feel like this is a testament to how I felt growing up (minus the beauty pageant & lame mom.)

The cast hosts a line up of many of my favorite female actresses – Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore, Stuntwoman Zoe Bell, Juliette Lewis, and Eve. I also learned that Minneapolis recording artist Har Mar Superstar will have a part as a ref.

Will whip it inspire girls to get involved the sport of rollerderby? If yes contact your local rollerderby team to volunteer or come see us at bouts.

The Ride of Silence 09 Minneapolis

On May 20, 2009, 7:00 PM – cyclists worldwide gather in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. Yesterday I rode together in a pack of about 100 bikers along side my brother in law & husband. Sadly biker Dennis Dumm was killed earlier that day on 15th and Park near downtown, which is why I chose to participate in the ride.

The ride stared at 34th & Lyndale and proceeded to the ghostbike location of Jimmy Nisser’s ghostbike, and then on to Dennis’s site where we met his family & friends in tears. This was a very emotional ride for everyone, but powerful. Although those in cars did not understand why a pack of cyclists took the streets, it still made a huge impact, many stopped and watched. The downside is that many spectators thought it was fun to see the group- many of them did not know that this was a tribute to the fallen bikers of the twin cities. Randy, Will, and I rode to Nicholas ‘Nik’ H. Morton’s bike and proceed home. The ride went to St. Paul to visit the last ghostbike of Virginia “Ginny” Heuer.

I often I fear the dreaded phone call, as my husband and many friends commute in rain, heat, and snow via bike to work. Minneapolis has one of the biggest population of bicyclist commuters in the nation and many of the dedicated bikers fight to keep the city streets safe to ride. I have chosen to ride to work in the past and have experienced many asshole drivers who choose to harass bikers on the street, one even who veered close to me intentionally.
