Is Daniel Day Lewis the first non-skater to earn “He’s good, but who cares” status? OMG OMG OMG How did everyone like the new episode of Girls?

Europeans! Frisco, out in Arnhem, The Netherlands, now has QS tees online and in-store. (We’re about to sell out of white larges on our web store, by the way.)

The Shape of Things to Come podcast has a new episode up with the governor of New Jersey, Fred Gall. It’s an hour-long chat about his skate career, travels, taxes, lighting twenty-dollar bills on fire, saving monks from a burning building, sneaking into bars, putting money on hot dog eating contests, flannels, beards, etc.

Here’s a sad photographic study of the latest T.F. box’s (“The Labor Box”) final days.

Jonathan Mehring posted up some scenic photos on the Skateboarder website from a 2006 article about spots on the New York waterfront. That Joey Pepper 5050 is nuts.

Check out this documentary about Todd Fishman, the truest of OG New York skaters. “Put your work in” and watch out for those pigeons.

This kid Derm has a sick part full of crusty New Jersey spots and an early, pre-Illmatic Nas song (things get scary in the last thirty seconds though.) The comments are bound to be full of “Where’s that spot at?” questions.

Did you guys see the Palace x Fruit of the Loom collaboration? The tees are already going for $200 on the Bay.

Juicy J made skateboards “for his hipsters.” Meek Mill, as a fellow member in the current crop of relevant rappers to make skateboards, was a year ahead of the curve.

Taji has a new web series about up and coming skaters over on the Vice site.

The new Green Diamond / Yaje Popson video will premiere at Enid’s (Manhattan & Driggs) this Saturday (the 19th) at midnight. It will also be Rob’s birthday, so buy him a beer. Flyer here. Check the new teaser here. Video goes online the next day.

The crew behind relaunched their website.

  • Girls is acurately trashy 20 something candy. That scene with marnie at the end really topped it off. Also, im digging Shosh and Ray’s awkward relationship, itll probably end up being the most stable in the show. The drunk gay boyfriend made a great albeit obvious comment contrasting two generations of new yorkers, really set the tone of what they’re going for this season.

    but is it the voice of a generation?

  • Can we also talk about the questionable quality of juelz santana’s latest offering? Dude used to have his own style but now he sounds like every other dweeb riding the trap beat wave. Heatmakerz; where are thee?
