When Rollerblading Gets Famous…

…it could look like this. Which is a story VICE wrote about Tyler. It’s not very nice, but then sometimes when you’re in the public eye people say not very nice things about you. Goes with the territory.

I don’t know Tyler very well, or at all really, but it’s easy to imagine him getting quite a kick out of these sorts of “take down” articles, because what it really does is draw attention to the fact that people are paying attention to him (or what he does or who he knows). You can hate the antics if that’s your prerogative, but who really cares?

Anyway, the take away here is that yes, a ROLLERBLADER, though maybe not your exact definition of a rollerblader, is making mainstream waves and hanging out with “celebrities” and selling work and getting coverage and having sites like VICE take shots. Who’s laughing now? Get that popcorn ready so we can sit back and see what happens.

KJ - Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Yes, Tyler Shields, the creator of WAR(we are rollerblading) is now dating “Dirty Harry’s” daughter. My friend use to hang out with him in the mid 90s in Jacksonville, from what I hear he was a dick, but if i was 14 pro and getting paid to skate, Id be a dick too. Hey he did make one of my favorite sections ever, Chris Farmer- Tommorow Never Dies- WAR
