When You’re Bad, You’re Bad

Happy birthday Ben Blundell! Photo via that social media platform that people stopped using in favor of Instagram being worse at doing the same exact things. No idea who took the photo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The creators behind the first ever “Summer Trip to New York” montage to utilize 6ix9ine were nice enough to release it alongside the clip’s raw files for those not bold enough to find out what a full 6ix9ine song actually sounds like.

“Either you’re down or you’re not. New Orleans is insanely small, and not only am I the shop owner, but I skate, so at the end of the day at 7, I’m like on the corner with all boys drinking beer. I don’t want to be like, “uh no you’re not on, you are on.” It’s just dumb, so with me it’s just like man the whole city’s on.” Skate Jawn has a new interview with QS office favorite, Philly Santosuosso. (Related.)

Boil the Ocean’s Quasi Mother review is here to remind you that Josh Wilson is all-too-often forgotten in the Skateboarding’s Greatest Hair™ conversation. That reminds me to go pop a biotin right now…

You’ve no doubt caught it, but Adidas has a new video of the 50-year-old Mark Gonzales and the twenty-year-old Tyshawn Jones skating around lower Manhattan together. The “this is a state trooper building” bit made me laugh hehe.

Spencer Hamilton got two bangers at Big Screen in his new part on Thrasher.

…and Thrasher has the raw files of T-Funk’s polejam boardslide down the Columbus Park rail. (Half the park is still fenced off btw.)

Imagine driving from Austin to New York so that you could skate the triangle manual pad up the block from L.E.S. These dudes look like they drove from Austin to New York so they could skate the triangle manual pad up the block from L.E.S.

Paul Young uploaded a circa 2015 Nick Ferro footy tape, from the age before he began his current quest of mastering the switch hardflip.

Leo season begins today, but apparently so did Jinx season.

TWS has Andrew Singh’s part from the Westchester-based PFP5 video.

The Bunt is back and their first episode of the new season is with the last non #big #rail #guy to get S.O.T.Y., Wes Kremer.

Here is a minute of Mother extras and B-sides. Hope for more one day :)

Not not an all-Quasi edition of the countdown, though there weren’t enough parts in there to give them ten slots — but rejoice in the fact that you don’t have to watch the video off a porn site for now. Also gave special attention to that quite good Cons tour vid with a bunch of dudes who didn’t have parts or appearances in Purple (besides Bobby obvs), and also included the office’s favorite two-trick ledge line in a minute.

Have a good one ♥

Have A Bagel Alright Guy

The Quasi video is now online.

“What’s the story behind Harold’s ‘Cheer Up, Bagel’ remark?” We finally learn the origin of the greatest sound byte in skate video history (“sometimes I wanna live and sometimes I wanna die” is runner-up) via Chrome Ball’s new interview with Dan Wolfe.

I C Y M I.

“The production numbers were so large that when I was on a solo trip to Korea tasked with moving production from one factory to the next, during a business dinner at a 5 star restaurant with the factory owner, I was told through a translator that, ‘The factory owner would like to inform you, that he can kill a man in this country and their body will never be found so you might want to change your decisions too.’” — Anthony “The Writer” Pappalardo tracks down the history behind the Osiris D3 with its designer.

Though he let up on the gas a bit since he got robbed for S.O.T.Y. by the third #big #rail #skater to get it in the past three years, Village Psychic offers up a mid-year remix video of Tiago’s stray bits of coverage to emerge these past seven months.

Jahmal Williams’ favorite skateboarder is Ray Barbee

Kyota remixed his part from Bot Video 2. Watch the full video here.

Rory Milanes = the new Chad Muska, and Thrasher posted their Palace in Hawaii article and photos online.

“Think of this magazine as a platform for you — yes, you! — to showcase what it is you do for skateboarding. Wherever you are. Whoever you are. Because as you’ll see here, skateboarding can really be anything you want it to be. It’s just a fucking toy after all.” Vice has an interview with the creators of Skateism, a magazine focused on nontraditional and underrepresented corners of the skateboard universe.

J.B. Gillett returns to San Francisco and Embarcadero for the first time since moving there all the way from France at the age of sixteen.

Jenkem runs down the history of Blubba with R.B. Umali and Steve R.

Hot take: midtown night footage looks better than 99% of cellar door footage.

Skate Muzik interviewed Mike Gigliotti from Lottie’s Skateshop in their latest episode.

You most likely caught it already, but Tao put together a southwest U.S. edit with Cyrus, Max, et al. for Nike SB, and I’ve had that Sunday night at Sway song stuck in my head all week.

Quote of the Week: “If it starts snowing tomorrow, I’m not even mad. Summer 18 has to end, g.” — Will Marshall

In an age of tuning out pre-roll commercials before skate parts, this line and song are still burned in everyone’s brain — it’s The Chocolate Commercial™, after all. The word “timeless” gets thrown around a lot, but it is hard to imagine this ever looking dated.
