Call 9-1-1, it’s an emergency!

Apparently, there’s a program where you fly to Iraq, and in between combat, intelligence operations, and training, you build ramps with Saddam’s palace in the background. Billy Rohan went to Iraq and posted up some photos. It seems like the military is really open to these things, because it is not the first time it has happened.

Given how easy it is to merely assume skateboarders are all idiots, it is always good to read something like this that can remind us that some of our colleagues are actually capable of something beyond hating on video parts, drinking beer, and occasionally going a good kickflip back tail, in addition to showing the world that there’s more to it than ruining some ledges nobody else cared about to begin with.

The City of Philadelphia (as in, the government and public officials, not the people in Philadelphia) never ceases to be the worst, most youth-hating place on the East coast. How the hell do you skatestop a spot on top of blowing tons of money on “skate proofing” it via renovation six years ago? Not that it is really going to stop anybody, but Love Park has actually been skatestopped (seriously.) Spotted via Skate Nerd.

Habitat posted some ads for their upcoming Origin video on their Facebook page.

Some photos of Westchester’s Jose Pereya (of Dos Sandias infamy) on the Skateboarder Magazine website.

Number two on the Quartersnacks shortlist of insanely underrated video parts. So ridiculously ahead of its time. I had some shitty VHS dub of all the Plan B videos I got off eBay for $20 back in like 2000, before I knew anything and only watched the videos for Duffy and Rodney Mullen, but even then, knowing what year the last trick was in, it never made sense. It kind of helps that it’s set to one of the best hip hop songs to ever be in a skate part as well. The best nollie halfcab flip ever probably makes up for the switch willy grind he does afterwards.

New Jersey is still the realest state in the country, anybody saying otherwise, can save it. It is probably the only place you can get the quickest, bite-sized (in terms of state size) microcosmic tour of America. Red necks, yuppies, hoods, white trash, the mafia, Jay-Z, industrial waste, fields in Secaucus full of dead bodies, corrupt politicians, other rich people, regular white people, Cubans, Asians, Mexicans, Fred Gall, etc. — no other state packs in America within tight, polluted, and hard-to-navigate packaging like Jersey.

Before Kobe begins discussing how many more rings he has than Shaq, maybe he should consider talking about how many rings he has because of Shaq.

QS-favorite, Lil’ Boosie indicted for first-degree murder. Crazy one.

  • Giloti was spotted at Mamani’s friday night listening to the Kottonmouth Kings in a boom box with Oakley stickers on it. He had a headband on and it had an Italian flag on the side. He bought a 1$ slice of pizza and paid for it with a 100$ bill. I told him I could not break it he threw up some gang sign and told me he was going to get change from san loco. I waited for two hours and he came back at 5 am with magarita on his face and tried to pay with another $100 he said it was cool and that I should keep the change and buy something nice with it. I went to avenue d and bought myself a bag of marijuana
