Ok. So, you already know that Json Adriani is badass at blading right?
What you may not know if you’ve never personally met Json, is that he knows the most random information in the world about Michael Jordan, Bruce Lee, Michael Jackson, Notorious B.I.G. and the Transformers. To top that off, he often talks about Wesley Snipes too!
Another quirk about J is that he has this enormous DVD collection. His inventory ranges from the most crappy blading flicks to the biggest mainstream Hollywood films with crazy explosions or super heroes. Very often, I am a guest in his home (great host…thank you J) and it’s always a game of Russian Roulette in regards to what genre of visual entertainment he’s gong to put into the DVD player. Will it be that Polish drum and base blading video or maybe Blade Trinity? Who knows…?!
You know, I vividly remember the one time I got lucky when he put on the classic Denzel Washington film “He Got Game” and then shortly as usual, fell asleep. Yes, within five minutes Json ALWAYS falls asleep and he leaves you alone with the most nonsense flow of imagery on the television screen. Oh the memories!!
Aside from blading, random information, a massive film collection, being a great host that always falls asleep…Json is actually a good cook too! But, I will talk about his VERY YELLOW curry chicken another time…haha!!
