I Want Wednesdays

I haven’t really wanted much of late. But I thought I’d throw together a post of some fun things I’ve found about the place that I wouldn’t mind if they landed in my mail box.

This tank would be perfect for derby training. Bigger thighs are all the better to block you with my dear šŸ˜‰

I am still absolutely in love with Terrariums and have beenĀ pinning a million ideas of designs and ideas. This “Mossarium” by Petite Green of a miniature golf course is super cute! I wonder if you could make one of a little derby track surrounded by mossy hills? Challenge Accepted!

I am looking for some artwork for my walls. I really like the idea of hanging an old vintage World map up on the wall. Something you can look at and dream up your next adventure destination. I’m loving this one by Blacklist Studio. It’s a little pricey… but with a little eBay digging I’m sure I’ll find something in my price range.

I want ALL OF THE COLOURS!! The Kate Spade Fall 2013 collection is to-die for. Polka dots, bright pinks, clashing prints! All of the girly crap that I would love to wear if I had all of the money to overhaul my wardrobe!

Is there anything you are coveting right now?

Oh Hi Music Monday, haven’t seen you around for a while, how you doing?

I have this song on an old cassette tape somewhere when these guys toured Australia years ago (yes, the early nineties WERE years ago!!) in their original line up. They played a Live at the Wireless on Triple J and it’s hilarious and awesome and everything you would expect from Blink 182.

No respect lost for Travis Barker who has pulled out of this years Australian Tour. I wouldn’t call it a “phobia” I would call it a very valid fear.

The nature of sport. Fine looping motion, punctuated by violent collision. That is the equation, sacrifice and beauty on the flat track.Ā No names, no interviews. The speed, the grace, the violence of the sport are encapsulated within a non linear narrative that showcases the athletes not the scene

It gave me goosebumps. I think it was just the way it was shot. The direction and the attention to detail. Any derby skater may feel a great sense of deja vu within elements of this film. The closeness of a game. The lead up. The training. The daily rituals. If you haven’t watched this yet, please do yourself a favour…

Vic / Tas Roller Derby Tournament 2013

So the Victorian/Tasmanian Roller Derby Tournament 2013 is in full throttle mode!

vic  tas tournament

The Victorian Tasmanian Roller Derby tournament is an ambitious undertaking to have as many leagues as possible in both Victoria and Tasmania play in 2013, culminating in finals determining a champion league.

This is really really exciting news! The groupings have been announced and we have been placed in Group 2 alongside fellow Victorians Geelong Roller Derby LeagueĀ andĀ Ballarat Roller Derby LeagueĀ and two Tasmanian leagues (both from Launceston) Van Dieman Rollers and Devil State Derby League.

We will be holding try outs in a few weeks time to rank our skaters that will form our Travel A team squad (the Death Stars) for the tournament this year. Within that top 20 skaters our Captains will be nominated and voted in and planning and training for this event will amp up TO THE EXTREME!

I am incredibly excited about this tournament this year. 16 leagues across these two states are getting involved. It fosters a greater derby relationship across all levels (regional leagues, experienced metro leagues, up-and-coming leagues) and more derby action for the fans out there.

Our team that will be formed for this has an exciting opportunity to put their skills to the test in our May the 4th bout with a visiting interstate league (details are being finalised… can’t mention any names just yet ;)) so that should give us something to really strive for to get our strategy and team work together before the Tournament starts towards the end of May

High-five to ALL OF THE DERBY!!!
