roller derby on front page of NY Times


This is huge - Gotham Girls made the FRONT PAGE of the NY Times! I really wanted to add the article When Their Alter Egos Come Out to Play, but the Times wants $250 to repost on the internet.

There's background on the resurgence of roller derby and the growth of the WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) featuring a video and interviews with several of the GGRD rollergirls. It makes me proud to be a part of roller derby.

hahahahaha greeting card and t-shirt


Roller derby blocker in red pin up style uniform laughs after knocking down the opposing team's jammer.

Shown on a vintage-inspired ringer t-shirt, made for women. 5.8 ounce combed, ring-spun 100% cotton. Super soft 1x1 baby rib knit. Contrasting 2" neck and sleeve binding. Cover-stitched 2" bottom baby hem. Custom contoured fit that clings to the body. Made by Bella. Starting at $19.10, as shown $22.45.

I'm still getting used to the models wearing the shirts, but I guess it does give a better preview of how it will look when you wear it. My only complaint is that when you zoom in it doesn't show a good close up of the image, but you can see it pretty well on the greeting card.

the agony of defeat

Today's Best October 23, 2007 Red-headed rollergirl in green skate dress hugs her knees after a loss. This one reflected the way I was feeling, though not over a loss because I'm happy every time I get to skate. I just had a bad day, and this is how I felt. As any rollergirl or derby widower knows, you'd have to be in a really bad mood to put your nose that close to your pads! Zazzle made me feel better by choosing it as one of the day's best.

Shown on a classic heavyweight t-shirt. Tagless design for ultimate comfort. Pre-shrunk, 6.1 ounce 100% cotton. Double-needle stitched bottom and sleeve hems. Loose, classic fit, wears well on anyone. Starting at $14.95, as shown $14.95.

Texas Rollergirl all star Derringer .44 featured inventer on Statesman.com


Manda Claire Jost, aka 'Benderella,' 35, lecturer of evolution at the University of Texas, Texas Rollergirl aka Derringer .44

Circuit bending

(Jost will provide a free workshop at Maker Faire)

www.myspace.com/benderella

Homebound during last winter's ice storm, Jost started dismantling a baby's electronic alphabet toy she happened to have lying around, crossing wires and changing the circuit board with alligator clips, switches and a soldering iron to create new sounds. She keeps musical toys because she has a small music studio at home and likes to create new sounds.

"When I had the thing apart and wires strewn all over the table, the toy's voicebox said 'play with me,' " she says.

She did, and joined the art form of short-circuiting low-voltage, battery-operated children's toys to create new sounds. She became a circuit bender.

"The goal is not to accept a toy for what it is but to crack it open and change it," she says. "Anyone can do it. You don't need to know a thing about what you're doing."

At Maker Faire, she will have a table of used electronic toys, and a variety of tools to tinker with the circuit boards. "It is playful, creative and on the fly," she said. "These things start at an exploratory stage and evolve to a project. And once you're finished, you decorate it."

She's also bringing a synthesizer that is modulated by a vintage heart monitor and heart defibrillator. She will look for a volunteer to be smeared in EKG conductive gel. The effect? It will change sounds that the keyboard makes.

Maker Faire

When: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday

Where: Travis County Exposition Center, 7311 Decker Lane

Cost: $25 adults; $15 students 13 to 21 with student ID; $10 ages 4-12; 3 and younger free. (You can buy tickets in advance and for a $5 discount at the Austin Children's Museum through Friday.)
