7. And what about alcohol, dope? What was your attitude to this stuff in different periods of life?
"–alcohol and drugs are obviously very dangerous and addictive, thats why i just smoke weed and limit my drinking. Weed is a great drug for anybody trying to be a pro athlete, or for just about anyone for that matter, as long as it is used with good intentions"-Aaron feinberg
"F.I.D. FUCK IT DUDE HAHARHA+HARHA"
This thread rules. Unfortunately I'm going to make it slightly less cool by suggesting you ignore what anyone involved with rollerblading has ever said about anything unless that person is Robert Guererro.
Or Possibly Shane Coburn.

Richie Eisler sucks
“As far as I can see out there today, Rolling is, it's the purest thing out there. I mean, what attracted me to Rolling is the fact that it was like this blank canvas"
"Yeh, I mean it was a blank canvas, like when we started back in the day, that's how it was, but now it's evolved so much and there's so many kids just going crazy and it's all just creativeness everywhere, everyone's doing their own, it's tight, it's like individualism, at it's best..."
"and and everyone....everyone's doing their own thing, but the cool thing is it's embraced you know what I mean, there's not a lot of like bias and prejudice in, in rolling, I mean it's like, I see some tech kids out there and I see some kids who just go huge and it's like it's all the same community you know what I mean, people are down with the whole thing..."
"I mean but in the community it's all great and it's at its illest you know, it's the best it's ever been, but then you look outside and all those outsider eyes, that are all into the "cool" whatever's "cool" you know is carrying their skateboard whatnot, they look at it the same way they have, but if they open their eyes to what we do, they cannot deny the fact, that what we do is ill..."
"They gotta put on different glasses and stop listening to Korn and Limp Bizkit..."
"Cos its like, it's like, seriously, stop following the crowd you know, stop being a victim of social conditioning. Rolling is the illest thing out there. It's the greatest thing, that, that society has seen in a long time. It's the most honest form of self-expression out there, it's like I just wanna be part of that evolution, because it truly is, it's evolution. I mean for the first time I can see something infront of my face, I can see something that's like; Rolling, and it's positive and it's getting better, and it's like I mean it makes me so complete to go out there and to be able to challenge myself, mentally, physically, spiritually...I mean, it's it's, it's just like the greatest feeling you know what I mean..."
"It's the best thing for you man. I mean you go out 'n skate, you can do anything that you want. You can test your brain, you can think of new things to skate, you can test your fear 'n just huck yourself, try to go get hurt you know...you can just do whatever you want and it's so broad od what you can do, and possibilities are endless"
"And they seriously are because they are attached to your feet, and people look at that, as like something bad, but it's not man, it's an extension of your body. All that means is that, anything your body can do, you can do on, on skates"
"I mean in having them attached to your feet, that just allows you to be one, you know, like.....with skateboarding, all compared to skateboarding right now, I don't like to but I am like, a skateboard you flip around, it's not you, all you're doing is working at flipping a piece of wood around, you know.
"Like throwing a baton in the air"
"Yeh, it's the same thing you know, I mean it's different but it's the same thing"
"I hear you man, I mean, I feel the same way, I mean that's what I love about rolling, that's why I'm so attracted to it. It is true, honest self-expression and there's nothing else out there, there's nothing, that can touch that

God, that thing from BFG is the coolest thing ever in the video, but the transcript of it is almost impossible to read.
"Never forget why you started rollerblading. If you do not enjoy and can't turn into that little kid over and over, then you will never get better and in turn nor will rollerblading." DL
