Not to be confused with Lurkers. “Lurking” has fond associations around here.
Steady Lurking is a video by Mike Williams, mostly filmed in New York and outlying areas. You wouldn’t notice it if you spend any time at the Chinatown and Tribeca skateparks or 12th & A, but a lot of young kids still skate and film at actual “spots” in this city. It’s a good sign for whatever the next generation of New York-based skate videos turns out to be. (Sidebar: Cameras should be banned from every skatepark except Chelsea. iPhone/GoPro at 12th & A is okay…especially if you’re doing a longways ollie over the picnic table.) While we concluded that skaters are too happy being garbage to ever skate to “Tip Drill” on Twitter the other night, at least this video pays homage to two Ricks at the same time (any Rick James use is a x2 Rick homage), and solves the “Has anyone skated to ‘Mr. Sandman?’” question that any skaters who watched the 2012 NBA post-season asked themselves every time *that* damn commercial came on.
Fun video. Embedded below in two parts. Buy Tall Will a drink from the deli when you see him at Lenox.
