God Forgives, The T.F. Don’t

Called it. Remember that “joke” post about $1,000 griptape last month? Guessing what’s next isn’t a tough call. P.S. Our trend forecasting and consultation services are available for a hefty retainer fee.

The Bronze 56K DVD (which includes the other three Flipmode videos) is now available at DQM for those who are afraid the government watches their every move, and are hesitant to enter financial information online. The DVD is not the extensive box set we had envisioned for New York’s greatest skate video franchise, but even as a bare bones release, it is a must-own. Hopefully, sometime before the DVD completely dies off, we’ll have a 6-disc Criterion Collection release with director’s commentaries, “Where are they now?” featurettes for Why Man Why and Billy Lynch, Flipmode 3, I Woke Up Dead, and the believed-to-be-lost first video all included.

If you’re over 21, have an internet connection, and ride a skateboard, there’s a 98% you’ll see any Gino-related thing within 12 hours of it going online. If not, watch his DQM welcome video. Wow on the music supervision.

Vice has a cool retrospective on early-nineties skate ‘zines.

Quim Cardona gives you a tour of the oft-neglected Newark, NJ skate scene. (“Daytime’s the shit out here in the bricks, boy. I love it. But when nighttime come…”)

This “Lil’ Wayne is into skateboarding” thing doesn’t look like it’s ending anytime soon. Hey Wayne, unless you’re Mike Carroll filming for Fully Flared or something, 30 isn’t the best time to begin focussing on skateboarding. Stick to what you’re good at what you used to be good at. (Also: Will the grand opening of the skatepark Wayne is building in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward look anything like the “Pop That” video?)

Here’s some extra crisp-looking footage from New York and Philly via the crew that brought you the video named Video.

Josh Kalis talks about how pills suck and other things.

New Krispy Du-Rag clip to keep them waves tight. Features Luis Tolentino skating the Maloof Park like it’s a street spot.

A few weeks ago, it was skateboarding in Uganda. This week, here are some photos of the skate scene in Afghanistan. Skateboarding is super chill.

A pre-trip video interview with our two friends who are skateboarding from Boston to New York right now. (Follow via @backstreetatlas on Instagram & Twitter.)

Nevermind, a video by Paul Young featuring yet another Jersey Dave part, is premiering later this month. Flyer here, teaser for the video here.

Quote of the Week: “Hamburger featuring cheese.” — Black Dave ordering lunch


Brooklyn is gross.

  • This is totally unrelated to anything, but – I saw some dude in a green Palace triangle shirt- was also weraring a hat and I think he was wearing glasses. black Adidas – skating down my street yesterday in Astoria (29th street). If this is you and you live in Astoria, holler at me – my only two friends who skate both moved out of NYC and now I’m just languishing around Astoria / LIC.

    Please give me a shout, I’m not a wierdo or a kook

  • New England produces the most talented skateboarders per capita in this entire great nation of ours. Check the stats.
