As we enter the great unknown abyss of 2017, Quartersnacks will make the extra effort at embracing the things that make our world glow, and bringing them to the public’s attention (e.g. listened through the circa 2010 masterpiece of jubilance known as Suntrust Leland three times yesterday.)

To start, we took one of 2016’s more ~serious~ video outings, and remixed the 2014 Noseslider of the Year’s part with the same vibes that made 56 Tricks a perennial favorite Quartersnacks clip among office personnel.

Shout out to Roctakon for help on the mix ♥ and the Polar boys for sharing the footage.

YO, massive shout out to the crew, politicians, shops and community in Providence, Rhode Island, on getting an approval to turn an underused corner of their downtown into a full-on block of a skate plaza. Let this be a precedent for cities across the U.S.

Also congrats to the boy Sean Pablo on going pro

“If they didn’t name me Genesis then my dad would have named me Jubilee, from X-Men, who was a girl. That would’ve been very funny. I’m glad they named me Genesis.” Sex mag (sure) has an interview with Genny re: growing up, DANY, etc.

Zered is on Alltimers, and has a new part out to reassure you of his decade-plus status as the east coast’s most productive pro, and the king of the worst spot in Queens ;)

“It’s still the same if I just don’t let myself become too jaded and reclusive. There are still endless possibilities.” Huck has a feature with Jerry Mraz, who they apparently dubbed “The Batman of Skateboarding.”

The ender of Pat Gallaher’s Insano part is insano. Great part :)

Josh Kalis and Mike Blabac talk about the state of the plaza in 2017 + other things, and The Muska reveals what was in his backpack all those years. Get well soon bud.

Antosh and the Canadians have a new one out on TWS.

“We decided to make the game more fun so that’s why it was never a realistic simulation of skateboarding. That was key to the success of the game.” Ironic that the reason maybe 50% of the people now in their late 20s started skateboarding was something intended to be an unrealistic simulation of skateboarding. Jenkem has the oral history of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

Keeping a real skate shop open in 2017 is God’s work ♥ Thank you to all who do.

Rodrigo TX skates Three Four Up Three Four Down, T.J. does a bunch of crazy shit, and lol that there’s security standing at the bottom of the bank in every clip ever gotten at the Roosevelt Island Monument in this link to a clip with 54k YouTube views.

Boil the Ocean re: Lil Wayne’s proclamation that skateboarding is a better feeling than sex with an actress while her movie is playing on a screen in the background.

Canal uploaded a 30-min 2016 Year-In-Review compilation of Instagram videos.

A bit of street skating + a Maple tee in Quim and Freddy’s Portland, M.E. visit.

A couple of footnotes on this one:

1) The second half of the inspirational, and most “why the hell are you 25 and complaining about being sore” video part in recent history got disqualified because that footage was previously released. Still an incredible part. 2) Even though looking like you were vomitted on by a Zumiez location — as the Twitters eloquently put it — is grounds for dismisal from Top 10 selection, the said trick, and tons of other hot moves in that Jordan Maxham part are undeniably insane. 3) Fakie varialll flipsss ;)

It’s Friday the 13th, be safe out there ♥

Went from doing one of these once every month to once every quarter. Might try and pick it up a bit this year, but we’ll see what happens. Request line is open ;)

Figured we could annotate B.A’s heavy media presence from last year with a conversation about a light topic: inspirational old skate video parts. It is pretty unexpected how so many older street guys (especially east coast bred ones) end up picking tons of vert and transition-based skating.
