Did anyone actually root for the Brooklyn Nets this season? Did Hov only do that so hopefully you won’t have to go through that?

This article about the making of Kids and what happened to the cast since 1995 by Caroline Rothstein is better than the movie itself. It mainly focuses on Harold Hunter and Justin Pierce, but manages to catch up with just about everyone with any sort of role in the film. An absolute must-read for any nineties east coast skate nerd.

Mic-E Reyes talks about punching people and getting punched during his Deluxe team manager days in a new interview with Chris Nieratko.

NY Skateboarding checks out the new street-based skatepark in Woodhaven, Queens. It’s so street that they even knobbed the lip of the brick bank!

Skate & Stuff” is a new 23-minute, New York-based video by William Shum with cool spots, lines in trench coats, and Sergio Leone movie cut-ins.

This dude Conor Holliday 5050s up the entire handicap ramp ledge at the Jersey City Post Office, among other things in a new part, and Josh Wilson skates NJ crust in a Justin White-ish edit.

As expected, Boil the Ocean weighs in on the sponsor resignation of the century, in addition to living a post-Pretty Sweet existence, Greco’s new part, and of course, Mark Suciu. “Is Mark Suciu actually a 40-year-old bro who had been quietly filming in various towns under assumed names over the past 15 years, and is the steady release of footage a sign that he may have died sometime early last year, leaving the executors of his estate to periodically drizzle out tapes to sponsors in a Tupac-like series of posthumous releases?”

To remind us of simpler times, we upgraded the quality on the 2009 Mind Field re-edit.

The new Russ Milligan part is super chill.

While on the topic of Canadians, we uploaded a standalone version of 2 Beerz and Bradley Sheppard’s part from Elephant Direct, which is also available online in full.

Spot Updates: The Penn Plaza manual pad is done for. Ten years later, and Reese Forbes still has the best trick on it.

QS Sports of the Week:Delfino dunking on Durant is like going to another county and seeing that they have pictures of dogs on the money.” — @netw3rk

Sorry ladies.

A pizza place in Brooklyn denied Mayor Bloomberg a second slice of pizza as a protest to the soda ban. (Fake) news story of the year.

    Added in a “fake” news thing to the post as to avoid any confusion regarding non-Onion, Online-like publications.

  • Russ Milligan is dope, nice use of varial flip to manny and KMD.

    Despite several very impressive moves, Connor Holiday falls into the Mars Attacks category of people that are really good, that i never wanna watch skate ever again.
