ALWAYS REMEMBERED: Brandon Negrete - Friend and Videographer

Won't get to joke about Channel 94 anymore with this guy... (That was Brandon Negrete's AIM screen name. That's how long I've known him. Since before his first VHS video 'US' was released.) Great guy, who had definitely been through the ups and downs of being a videographer in the rollerblading industry. Was most often a great time hanging with him, whenever/wherever we crossed paths. Rest in peace.

Man, thinking about it, Negrete's catalog of videos is up there with some of the best in the game. US, Noir, Forever Now, Road to Nowhere, The Meantime, FadeNation, 2Faded, Regardless. Plus big time contributions to BANG!, The Xsjado Video, Life + Plus, Salomon, and more.

Surround yourself with good friends, seek out great times (no matter where you are), and do something that you love. And this way, you will be forever remembered.
