Links for a Rainy Monday (Bulls in 6)

May 16th, 2011 | 11:30 am | Daily News | 13 Comments

The upcoming week’s forecast looks pretty nice. Six straight days of rain. That shouldn’t stop you from skating though, especially if you’re unemployed, or your hours of employment are from 10 P.M. to 4 A.M.

The Flipmode affiliates have put together a four-minute throwaway clip to one of Big L’s more famously vulgar outings. “You know, they built you guys a skatepark so you wouldn’t skate here.”

A reel of Billy McFeely’s footage from the Caviar video, raw and without the music.

Torey Pudwill would be more exciting if he continued this trend of simple trick based, quick set-up lines on actual skate spots instead of kickflip back lip to back tailslide kickflip outs on ledges behind chain stores. With that being said, Plan B opting for the simpler, more stylish route on the promo makes us hope that the actual part would be more in that vein, and that’s certainly welcome.

Adam Abada’s journey through Europe on his skateboard. It’s not a journey from Milan to Minsk, but few have been so ambitious.

They can’t wait to start kicking you out of this thing. (Yes, it’s in midtown. And yes, it has been put in place of another former skate spot.)

Speaking of midtown, in addition to the planters, and the outdoor nightly security at Ziegfeld, they adopted the Penn Plaza measure of blockading off the entire plaza (typically done to deter crackheads, but with minimal results), most likely because they were afraid of someone putting the Quartersnacks undervalued labor market program into action.

This is so corny. (Has no relation to skateboarding.)

  • That bank spot is in the middle of a building on bleeker and broadway. It’s like some courtyard in the middle of the building and it looks like the only way to get in is through somebodys window. You mad
