Roller Rama Drama:
Feeling nostalgic about my roller disco days I went searching for it on the inter-web. Many, many years ago when disco was a lifestyle, I was a little too young to have participated. I know it’s sad but luckily disco permeated the stratum of cultural atmosphere and created a mini micro disco universe known as the Roller Rink. To me it was Studio 54 except that it had less celebrities and drugs. Everything else was exactly the same at least according to what I saw and read in People magazine. The spandex clad cliques rotating and trucking in syncopation underneath the mirrored disco ball...it makes me weepy just thinking about it. Anyway, In searching I discovered so many other people share this fascination of adolescence and coming of age in a roller rink. One particular site is dedicated to the now deceased “Motor City Roller Rink” which is a virtual treasure trove, a cornucopia if you will even of campy retro Roller Rink remembrances.
