Confirmed: Montre no longer with SSM

Hate to say I told you so, but it’s all over now, you know it.

If you’re pissed off about something your employer did, don’t vent on Facebook, or you’ll get fired through a press release. Well, that’s if your employer is Brian Shima, says Montre Livingston, again on his FB account.

Here’s the press release:

http://www.shimamanufacturing.com/montre-livingston-parts-ways-with-ssm/

Montre Livingston has been partnered with Shima Skate Manufacturing since day one; indeed, he was the first rider Brian Shima hired on his previous company NIMH.
Montre proves to be one of the most talented skaters of his time over and over, however, it is now time for Montre to embark on a new adventure and seek out new challenges to achieve the things he wants and needs to achieve separately from SSM.

We love and respect Montre and hope he is able to gain all the things he deserves. We know he will continue to kick ass and accomplish the unexpected just as he always has.
Thanks for the good times and all the hard work.
SSM.

And then there’s what the nice and civil press release didn’t tell us anything about , though:

I hope someboy finally decides to tell the rollerblading community who didn’t pay who for what. Only thing known, and that is too ‘through the grapewine’, is that Shima forgot to pay Montre for his pro skate, and didn’t pay denial for the wheels that were put on the skate, too.

Bad Shima, bad bad! We still don’t know for certain what has already happened in court between Shima and Jon Elliott, or  is yet to happen, but let’s keep our fingers crossed, and watch out for clone nicknames on the Be-Mag messageboard.

Shred Till You’re Dead II teaser.

The first Shred till you’re dead is available on Vimeo, look it up yourself.

This is the trailer for the second release and a few words from the director Ivan Narez:

Coming back again, the ‘Shred Til You’re Dead’ van heads up the 101 to explore some of the best skate parks in America with some of its best park skaters.

Join Chris Haffey, Jeff Stockwell, Erik Bailey, Brandon Smith, Victor Arias, Tory Treseder, and Ivan Narez as they embark through the Pacific Northwest and more in search of the finest concrete civic dollars can buy. This year’s tour includes the addition of Jon Julio, Jeremy Stephenson, and other friends along the way.

The Shred boys spend two weeks shredding, camping, playing Wiffle ball, riding motorcycles, fighting off aliens, and other things you do while on the road with your best buddies.

Don’t miss the opportunity to pick up the ‘Shred ‘Til You’re Dead II’ book, featuring photography from Jero, Stockwell, Smith, and Narez. It’ll cancel out your girlfriend’s copy of Twilight to restore balance to the literary community.

Brian Bruno Summer’s Gone edit for Scribe

The thing is, I don’t post too much stuff because the slogan of the blog is ‘Telling rollerbladers what is good since forever’. Alot of stuff that comes out isn’t really good enough. But Bruno’s latest edit for Scribe is insanely good. Flow that is up to par with Broskow. Enjoy.

P.S. Stole this off Be-Mag. http://www.be-mag.com/news/9711-Scribe-Industries-Brian-Bruno-s-Summer-s-Gone-Edit-
