Quartersnacks Top 10 — February 23, 2018

February 23rd, 2018 | 12:02 am | Daily News | 3 Comments

Not gonna lie — we took the majority of the week off in honor of Rihanna’s birthday and summer in February. Like the man said, “I’ll be right back, I’m on auto-pilot for the week” ;) Go get some fresh air.

HOWEVER, we *DID* make a promise that in honor of the queen’s 30th, we need to get on our grown up mature shit, and stop with the late Monday Links posts, (and that includes no more late Top 10s.) Glad to not put this one up at like 2 P.M. Plus, we got some other cool shit in the works for the next couple weeks. And yo, if you’re a shop and got the line sheet, today’s the deadline ♥

Have a good weekend everyone. 58 degrees tomorrow.

Happy Rihanna’s Birthday Eve!

February 19th, 2018 | 2:07 pm | Daily News | No Comments

Today is Washington’s birthday, but the queen’s 30th is tomorrow! We are going to stick to a Rihanna’s 30th resolution of no more late Monday Links posts! Ain’t none of us perfect, I hope it was worth it.

Zered Bassett’s seafood tower cruiser will be available on Alltimers.com tomorrow. They shot a quick Insta commercial for it, which you can watch here.

Jesse Alba has a chill new iPhone edit up with footage from the past couple months.

30 seconds new Gino footage from the Astoria Park and Roslyn Banks.

QS-office fave, Dave Caddo, has been been posting some outer borough gems on IG.

Somehow missed this one when it went live just over a week ago: Nick Michel, the dude who boardslid the double-rail across from the mini double-sets at Battery Park (#QSTOP10, a few weeks back) has an amazing new part up on Thrasher, which features the VX angle of trick in question plus a trick at the ride-on rail spot that’s not on the ride-on rail! Battery Park MVP 2k18.

Didn’t even know this was in the works — TWS made a documentary about Skateboarder magazine, which was the first ever skate mag. The “trailer” basically plays like the first seven minutes of the doc itself.

Muska tells the story of when him at Stevie Williams hung out with Michael Jackson at Neverland. (“C’mon man, this kid is ten years old — he don’t remember Thriller. ‘the fuck you wanna meet Michael Jackson for?”)

Mark Gonzales skates Owl’s Head Park with R.B. Umali for a Pro-Tec commercial.

Ten Person Crew Unanimously Disagrees on Meet-Up Spot.” Forever #mood.

Two more Stop Fakin’ 3 parts: D.C. Streets montage + Kevin Augustine’s part.

Old clip, new upload…Orchard’s day trip around New York for 2014’s All City Showdown to a Steely Dan classic.

Boil the Ocean has a weird one about skaters investing in things and animal enslavement. 2018 is odd.

The Bunt is back with a new Chima episode.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: J.R. Smith with a beautiful full-court…pass?

Quote of the Week: “Do you think we’d be more into Takeshi 69 if we still skated the back of Union Square?” — Pryce Holmes

Been a weird couples weeks for the countdown, and Europeans keep running shit. Also need to get back into the habit of posting these late the night before and not late Friday afternoon. Enjoy the last remnants of early April, have a good weekend :)

Never not on a perpetual break from the days when we were doing one of these segments a month. 2018’s first one comes from Tom Knox, one of the leading line choreographers working today. As always, open to any requests for future 5FPs.

Rafael ‘Haffa’ Pereira — Inkwell Commons Part

February 13th, 2018 | 10:21 am | Daily News | 2 Comments

The latest offering from Andre “Actually Everybody’s Father” Page’s Inkwell Commons imprint is a part from Rafael “Haffa” Pereira. I can’t exactly remember how many times I’ve heard Dre scold Haffa for his Grizzly grip, but I guess you have to be pretty stubborn to insist on going to skate fourteen stairs to begin with ♥

Filmed half in/around Boston, half in New York by Andre Page and Gatti.

Edited by Cruzctrl a.k.a. Eric Cruz.

He finally has the Inkwell site/shop up and running after 80 years. Pay her a visit.

Loosely related, but Dre has posting a ton of gems from old QS clips, etc. over on his personal Instagram as of late.
