Vice Vixen

Epic blogging fail, I TOTALLY MOVED

So as your humble narrator is now blogging-as-work, I went to renew my custom domain name. And lo, some dumbass domain-name clearinghouse has registered my site.


Fear not, oh my five readers. Vice Vixen has gotten a makeover. And now, please find me at :

Threadless just dropped this funky, girly derby-themed shirt for Halloween.  As always with Threadless, it’s get it while you can.  Really digging the fake movie/comic book vibe.  Too cool!

UK site.  The fit of the shirt is iffy, but the graphic is devine.  Totally cute!

Because rollergirls need excuses to get ass rubs?

I love indie beauty products.  It can be hit or miss, but so much stuff you buy in the store comes from the same exact cosmetic chemists in Jersey.  And this natural, healing balm is made especially to soothe nasty skate boo-boos.  Which you don’t tend to get if you’re a mega scaredy cat like me.  (Main Page…)

(And it comes in a post-bout kit!)

Vice Vixen has not forgotten you…

I am just getting my socialization on this weekend in a hardcore way.  I:

  1. Celebrated my main gay’s 21st birthday;
  2. Met my Snopes friends and got sassed by an inattentive waiter (by proxy);
  3. And have a date at the Waldorf-Astoria tomorrow.

I sincerely hope to be back in one piece on Monday.

Jerseys under $15!

Skating with a DIY, non-bout-hosting skateclub means we raise funds.  Like last night, Sweet Action Skate Club hosted a super-fun bake sale and recruiting party at Rope.  And it kicked mega-ass.  But we couldn’t skate inside on accounta Our Lady Mess almost killing herself once or twice there.

But the internet means an abundance of reasonably priced gear.  Case in point- a custom (long length!) jersey tee at Shop Lattitude.  I wanna get this one with my name and number, but the possibilities are like, so endless!

Recruiting, en masse

The demand to try out for the Gotham Girls Roller Derby is massive. And with good reason- they’re fierce, talented, amazing skaters, and skilled athletes overall. But several local skating organizations are recruiting, too, and just in case you rollergirls in the the NYC area and beyond haven’t heard, please check them out because they need skaters, too!

First (and I am a member), Sweet Action Skate Club is based in Brooklyn and is not a derby club. It’s just a bunch of cool, scrappy chicks who meet up wherever and whenever they can to skate. We are headed by the talented Our Lady Mess, and we are recruiting and partying at Rope this Thursday, so c’mon down and meet us, okay?

Second is the newer than GGRD but just as fierce Long Island Roller Rebels. This is my home turf, and these girls can skate. And they, too, are recruiting. (Strong Island, represent!)

Last, and newest is Suburbia Roller Derby– they are brand-spankin’ new and in need of good skaters. They have some alums from LIRR, GGRD, and Connecticut, and they’re looking for some fierce girls as well. They skate at this cool little throwback rink and they’ve got three practices going a week.

These newer leagues are a great opportunity to really learn from the ground up and become an awesome skater. I’ve seen these girls skate and it’s amazing- it’s a real grassroots girl thing, and it makes you very proud of all these women for resurrecting something and making it so much cooler.

Check them out, aspiring rollergirls- they need you!
