w00t. Volunteered at the opener this weekend. Probs going to miss the May bout though- there is a good chance I will be in Detroit watching my friend skate in the DDG home championship (3rd place/consolation) bout.
Roller Derby Picture Challenge
Day 8 - A picture of the person you’re inspired by the most
Beverly Kills, #90210, Houston Roller Derby
Kills is a leaguemate and personal friend of mine who has always been there for me on my little trip through the derbyverse. I thought about posting a photo of some derby-famous skater or another, but I decided that while those incredibly talented girls are indeed inspiring, they don’t hold a candle to Kills. Kills is naturally talented, but she also realizes that only gets her so far. She works her ass off on a daily basis to get better, and I think what I find most inspiring about her is that she is human. She has bad days, makes mistakes and gets mental blocks. Seeing her work through these has made more of an impression on me than any apex jump, monster hit or agile juke I watch on DNN.
When she jams it’s like a work of art - and one that’s REALLY hard to describe. Every move is a unique surprise. She’s one of the most resilient jammers I know of, taking huge hits and still getting back up and through that pack.
But aside from all that, when my motivation is gone or I feel like I can’t ever do anything right…I go to Kills and she always sorts it out for me. That’s what I consider a great friend and an inspiring mentor.
Saw her/Houston skate against the Chicago Outfit Saturday night- good stuff. I wish I had been able to see the WCR/Houston bout Sunday morning, but it was a closed bout.
I just backed this project, and you should too!
I LOVE TO ROLLERSKATE!

I also LOVE this picture of my friends Jackie Daniels and Cruel Whip because it looks like a dance party :)
This is a pic of my friend Rusty Razorskates from the Fury/Double Crossers home bout on Saturday (03/10/12). She thinks it is horrible and embarrassing but the rest of us think it is amazing! :) My caption/comment for it on FB is ‘No Pack Jesus’…
Jammin it’s fun!!!! Bonnie Thunders
I helped make this! (I even did the ending credits song in good ol’ Garage Band.) I love these things…

Nice. I was wondering when the Manics/Belles video for this weekend was going to surface :)
