Liv on Sundays, King of Diamonds Monday

October 26th, 2011 | 3:34 pm | Daily News | 6 Comments

Quartersnacks is the only skateboard media institution that goes to King of Diamonds and gets haircuts at 4:30 in the morning. How could anyone be content with the boring stagnation otherwise running rampant throughout the industry?

Monday links on a Wednesday…

Quick fall clip featuring a lot of hills, Leo Gutman, some wallies, and two edits of the same footage: White people music edit and backpack rap edit.

A few months ago, Matthew Mooney abandoned his dreams of professional skateboarder superstardom and Googled who the oldest player to be drafted into the NBA was, quickly reignited his childhood passion for basketball, and changed his career path. Our good friend Joe Cups made a short documentary about Mooney’s streetball skills, called “Mooneyball.” Now if only the NBA actually still paid players…

Nollie bigger spins with lime green wheels in this throwaway clip from some 2nd Nature affiliates. These dudes have spots.

If you’re into being smart and stuff, Raphael Zarka, author of On a Day With No Waves: A Chronicle of Skateboarding will be giving a lecture in SoHo on November 10 called “The Geometry of Skateboarding” at 6 P.M. More information here, and it is free with a reservation.

(Late) Spot News: Grant’s Tomb is kind of a bust now, Morningside School is blocked off for construction, and that stupid NYU up-ledge has been de-knobbed for the 8th time.

Events This Week: 43 Magazine Launch party tomorrow (October 27) at 41 Grand Street from 6 to 11. KCDC is having a Halloween party on Saturday. 2nd Nature is having one on Saturday too.

If you’re running low on Halloween costume ideas, this one is sure to be a guaranteed hit with the ladies.

  • Don’t tell Mooney but it’s probably so much easier to become a pro skater than a pro basketball player.

  • Why are there naked chicks hovering over whoever is getting their hair cut? Also, more importantly, why aren’t all barber shops like that?
