1. Please introduce yourself, where you from are and what are you been up to lately.
My name is Vincent Morretino. I live in the heart of the Midwest of the United States in Indianapolis, Indiana. What have I been doing lately? Just trying to be the best husband and father that I can be (plenty of room for improvement), and staying busy with work as a graphic designer, photographer (photojournalism, commercial property, portraits and weddings) and now video production work.
2. Most people may know you more as Fast-Eddie from Be-mag Message Board – if you would need to describe Be-mag board in few sentences – what would it be? How long are you active member of this board?
The Be-Mag message board was implemented to provide a place for people to transcend time zones and cultural differences to talk about all things rollerblading. Like many online forums and communities, the temptation that anonymity offers users to voice their pent-up negativity as loud as they possibly can is incredibly powerful, and it’s an easy trap to fall into. Admiral Ackbar warned me; he warned us all.
I’d like to think I contributed something to rollerblading through the message board in the 10 years that I have been a registered user, and I suppose that I did with Balance and the 30+ edits. But, I was a spiteful and falsely arrogant asshole to many people online that I did not agree with, or felt threatened by, and I had too much pride to admit that other people’s opinions are valid even if they are not in line with mine.
