Montre Livingston - ONE Mag, Issue #12 Interview (2009)

Montre Livingston - ONE Mag, Issue #12 Interview (2009)

These days Montre Livingston(/tags/montre-livingston) is one of the most celebrated bladers on Earth. Rightfully so! But back in 2009 he was still an emerging talent that had just landed the biggest score of his career when Brian Shima hand-picked him for the then-burgeoning Nimh.

To capture Montre ripping in his natural state, we sent long-time contributor John Haynes to Charlotte to shoot the pics for this interview. Turns out that wasn’t a pairing for the ages. But what we did get was a batch of hometown stunts by one of the most exciting bladers of our generation. So dig into this interview from ONE Issue #12 to get a taste for that sweet, sweet nostalgia.

Arlo Eisenberg - The Powell Movement, Podcast (June 2017)

Arlo Eisenberg - The Powell Movement, Podcast (June 2017)

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.

Check the podcast on Thepowellmovement.com.

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.

#TBT: Alex Broskow - ONE Mag, Issue #2 - Interview (2006)

#TBT: Alex Broskow - ONE Mag, Issue #2 - Interview (2006)

Over ten years ago ONE Issue #2 went to print and inside was a feature interview with Alex Broskow. At the time he'd just filmed for The Meantime (full video), was skating on Roces skates, and I could be wrong but VX may yet have not received their cease and desist letter from naming their jeans the "James Dean".

But we didn't handle this one alone. Sitting in on the interview were Wes Driver, Corey Casey, and Adam Johnson. So much time and blade history has come and gone in the intervening years that the information and opinions Alex (and AJ) share in this discussion have both been incorporated into blading's underlying psyche while also being lost in our collective memories. But that's what makes #ThrowbackThursday so fun, because it's a great chance to dig up old content like this and share with audiences that may have never seen it before. [...]
