You are two of my favoritist assholes ever.
So my aunt wants to open a roller rink in murrietta because WOW SURPRISE nothing to do here and my 16 year old cousin is all yay yay roller derby. I think you and Leah should pitch your idea to them. Bleach Maritni's for everyone, too, clearly.
It's really good exercise?
Its great exercise, I have lost .01" cellulite, or so it seems. Ok, shutting up now. Sorry, I have nothing bad to say about Derby.
The movie idea is golden.
I mean, what is the next step for roller derby girls? Suicide girls????
t substitute i like teh postal service does this make me a hipster jerkhole plz reply soonest
to aid in assessment please inform if in possession of
a)trilby hat and/or
b)sunglasses = or > size of face
i have a brown fedora but there is no feather in the band and i would like this taken into consideration
it will be noted and submitted to the tribunal with the collected evidence
Just goes to show you how much location makes a difference. I love me some roller derby, but it seems that in Chicago the girls and the crowd are quite different than out your way. Cornfed midwestern girls & southside badasses made for some brutal fun.
Oh, there are plenty of cool derby girls and derby events out here. I think I just hit saturation.
I can understand that. It hasn't reached that sort of popularity here... the fanbase is made up, mostly, of chubby chasers like myself. Call me a shallow fetishist, but Ye Gods it's just too much ass to pass up.
This reply made my whole day.

"luckily I'll be driving"
That's it - I'm canceling my subscription to bash.org. Who needs it?
You have to go to a bout to get it- I stand by it.
Derby itself is probably loads of fun to play. Derby as "phenom" is getting to be a pop culture disaster.
REALLY?! I swear to you, I thought only me and the other derby girls and assorted fans bought into this.
Send me coverage, I need proof. And I'm with you on a lot of anything pop-culture is usually a bad thing.
Side note, care to nosh this weekend? I'll be there Sat/Sun...
It's a THING now. Invest in it somehow, because every Fall-Out Boy fan in Sheboygan is going to be doing it in a year.
Nosh: Yes. YES. Sat. lunch?
I second his comment! It is not the activity itself or the people - I love all my derby girl friends and their derbying. It's more the slow build I can feel and see around me... Saturation point for me. Maybe it's also 'cos some of my derby-oriented friends got SUPER into it, to the point where that was all they cared about and that sort of alientated me from them/it, y'know?
By the way, am I ever going to met you?
I hear you guys- its definately (and I hate to say it) a lifestyle, which is why people get so saturated. I skate four nights a week, so its a big part of my life. But jeez, I know when to shut up about it. Not everyone cares. Its like...hockey or...furry's. Everyone has their thing.
You should join Conrad and I for some lunch, although I may be down Saturday closer to dinner. Or Sunday. I should be around for a good part of the weekend!
Speaking of furries, IS THAT WHY YOU ARE COMING TO COSTA MESA THIS WEEKEND, I BET IT IS
Anyway, I would love to try and get together with you two this weekend altho it may be kinda tough - I happen to have two bbq/party thingers to go to, one each day that starts around 3ish. Maybe Sunday before that? If not, then the next time you are down for sure.

Can I ask the derivation of blurpster? Because I'm going to start using it anyway and I don't want to mess it up.
I think I accidentally coined it by merging hipster and blurf
