T.F. Report: Labor Skateshop’s recent gift to the Tompkins community has temporarily been re-located to Avenue D for unknown reasons.

“Just like skaters, tennis dudes obsess over the most minute details of their ‘setups,’ like the type of nylon with which they string their racquets, the tape with which they grip their handles, shoes, all that shit.” — Frozen in Carbonite with a Freudian shoe review of the Nike SB Challenge Court that expands on skate/tennis parallels mentioned by Gino Iannucci, among other things.

There is a Torey Goodall interview in the new issue of Grey Skate Mag.

Yes! Skateboarding gets it right! November 19: A Twitter inquiry is made as to whether or not someone has skated to Ginuwine / Timbaland’s “Pony,” in expectance of an obvious “No.” November 23: The winner of a Manny Santiago re-edit contest coincidentally re-edits his part to…Ginuwine, “Pony.” Thank you David Jojola.

The New York Times profiled Supreme last week. They predictably chose an awful headliner photo. Also related: Have you guys heard about Supreme’s collaboration with Apple? Their limited run of custom MacBooks start at $999,995.

What a horrible last name.

Some young’ns up in Vancouver and Calgary made a sick twenty-minute skate video entitled “Serenity Now,” and edited to ignorance. Even QS has yet to a reach a point where clips are edited to Tyga. “You never could compete with Lloyd Braun!”

“Summer in New York” clips continue emerge even with nightly lows below thirty degrees. “Escape From New York” comes complete with a brief Snake Plissken nod. (There is no reason why Roc Marciano shouldn’t join Big L and Jeru the Damaja in the ranks of go-to music to edit New York skate clips to. “Paid for the necklace and ate breakfast.”)

New footage from the Jersey City rink spot that looks old due to #VHS.

The Muska is back on the board. Well, sort of. Will club scenes in skate clips be a part of #trendwatch2013?

Quote of the Week: “White folks don’t know about Peanut Chews. That’s candy for old black men. My father and his father ate those. Y’all [white people] just have Hersey Kisses in your houses.” — Josh Velez

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: JAAAVVVAAALLLEEE MMMCCCGGGEEE!!! (And Kenneth Faried and Andre Miller and Corey Brewer.)


Pretty Sweet DVDs supposedly come out tomorrow. Anyone have info on which shops will have copies? (Miss you, Autumn.)

  • Although i’ve already seen a kid skating the manhattan park in drop crotch rick owensesque pants I wonder if it will catch on because of the Muska

    I hope Muska can see this footage and realize it makes him look like a monochromatic umpa lumpa, leave fashion at the club

    Muska, I still love you, bring back the swishy pants

  • That NYT guy always gets the skate-related stories; what’s the deal? Also, I’ve been informed that you can read all about his life from his wife’s perspective, here: joannagoddard.blogspot.com
    Might explain a thing-or-two.

  • It could be argued that peanut chews are what kill Rabbit in John Updike’s “Rabbit at Rest,” arguably the whitest book by the whitest author in more recent American literature.
