“I didn’t know I was beast until I varial flipped a trash can.” — Genesis Evans

E.J. started to post bits and pieces of the DANY video over on his Vimeo page. You could still purchase hard copies of the video over at The Dany Store as well. Or if you want to get weird, we also saw it for sale at a barber shop in Japan, so…

Genny’s part is the first to go live, and it’s every bit as beast as sports analysts thought it would be when he was rolling away from the aforementioned varial flip. This video was what ushered in the wave of people skating the bad ledge at Houston Park again (also the inspiration for this post from March), so its chill to see this generation still keeping up with Anthony Correa’s business practices from Mixtape by placing a mid-line can on the pathway.

Should be caught up on all holiday webstore orders today / tomorrow, and end of the years lists, best ofs, etc. will begin to go live shortly ♥ #sorry4thewait

Damn, Remember That Week With Seven Updates?

QS webstore is now live with new beanies, longsleeve Snackman pocket tees, a reissue of the Tompkins Track Club hoody, and restocks on fall items. All of the new items are webstore only, i.e. won’t be at any shops. Also, we promise sending orders out won’t be a shit show like the last drop :) Thank you everyone for the support ♥

Solo interviewed Cyrus.

Tiago should’ve got S.O.T.Y, but at least Michael Scott is finally happy.

You probably saw it, but it’s perplexing as to how nine minutes of raw Jake Johnson footage can only have ~21K YouTube views? The remixes are bound to be rolling these next couple weeks, so here’s one that imagines if the rumors about Jake getting on Polar a year or two ago actually came true.

Why does it seem like frontside noseslide nollie heel out to fakie has been having a moment lately? Zoo dropped a sick 1/2 Ron Deily, 1/2 Gavin Nolan part last week.

Carlos Mendoza did the stage to rock ollie at 20th and C backwards

Village Psychic eulogizes Cliché. J.B’s Freedom Fries part will always be #top5 for me.

“It is widely agreed that anything that ever happened in skateboarding, past or present, occurred on Osiris’ 2001 ‘Aftermath’ tour.” Boil the Ocean on the decreasing chance of untapped interview subjects in skateboarding. Yo, who was at the Aftermath Tour stop at Chelsea Piers that day? We should all do a reunion.

Jenkem hung out with the one-man team behind @vintagesponsor.

The Kush Cowboy lipslide hubba from “cherry” just got torn down, so this long-winded Diamond commercial is most likely the last bit of footage you’re going to see on it.

Part one of a trip video featuring the two greatest New Jerseyian skateboarders roadtripping up to Maine. Don’t watch it if you’re hungry though.

Nothing to do with skating…just want to point you guys who like words in the direction of this incredible piece of longform journalism ;)

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Ish? Ish! (Yeah, this could be Russ every week.)

Gonna throw the unsolicited information out there that I’d be perfectly fine with spending American currency on a Tinashe x Metro Boomin album…

I Quit My Job in #myalltimers

Dustin Henry wraps up his 2016 bid as “Skateboarder You Would Be Most Comfortable With Your Daughter Dating” with a starring role in “#myalltimers” — edging ever close to 2016’s leading frontrunner, Louie Lopez. It’s been a year full of upsets, and given Dustin’s steadfast commitment refusing to use swear words, not listening to Chief Keef, and a “Part of the Year” contender in the Antisocial vid, maybe he pulls away with the S.Y.W.B.M.C.W.Y.D.D. win this year.

The rest of the latest Alltimers video acts as an intro for Adrian Vega, Tyler Warren, Will Marshall and E.T. the Extraterrestrial + a visual space for Adam Zhu to do the ollie over the bumps at Alligator Ledge that everyone always claimed.

Who would you be most OK with your daughter dating?

The Other Love Sign

After Rodney Torres 5050ed through in like a 2001 issue of Thrasher, you kinda had to figure there wasn’t much else to for full-grown adults do on the back end of the ‘E’ of the love sign on 55th and Sixth Avenue. Then Josh 5-0ed it in Lurkers 3 last year, and you really had to think there’s no other way an adult could contort his body to fit through something no larger than your average car trunk.

Somehow, someway, the tallest adult to ever skate the spot — the ~5′ 11-ish Connor Champion — managed to condense himself into a human S and charge a nosegrind through the keyhole of the E. Unless there’s an Instagram video of Rob Welsh doing a noseslide or Daniel Kim drops a new part he never told anyone about these next five days, you already know what #1 of next week’s Quartersnacks Top 10 is going to be ;)

The claustrophobic nosegrind and a bunch of Wade D. footage could be found in Grand Collection‘s new one.

Quartersnacks Top 10 — December 2, 2016

The entire week became a wash after that Vans video dropped. We capped it out at two inclusions, and left out the kinked rail heard around the world on purpose. Partly because everyone has seen it on every form of social media that exists, partly because word is that it didn’t even count ;) and because the trick that did get picked for #1 was on a rail that we hold a special bias for.

All around insane week in the skateboard world. Could’ve probably done a full top ten off the Sour Skateboards video alone, so you should go watch that if you have yet to do so. Have a good weekend.
