Recession Special

Even though everyone knows truth about hot dogs, we must bid a farewell to the 8th Street Gray’s Papaya. See, before the dollar slice boom of the late 2000s (pre-Mamani’s, Pre-Two Bros.), the familiar dilemma of skateboarding all day and trying to eat for under $4 was far more difficult. It was perfectly reasonable to skate crosstown from Tompkins to get the special at Gray’s. The kids have it way easier these days.

Less pertinent to skateboarding, but still a bummer: Miladys closed on Sunday :(

Jake Johnson pontificates on various issues over at the Cafe Creme blog.

If you’ve ever been to House of Vans, you know how absolutely insane this is.

Yet another recent Gino footage compilation. And here’s Boil the Ocean on “Gino’s most productive 14 months ever” and other developments from late 2013.

Polar has a Aaron Herrington mini clip on their Instagram.

The issue has been out for a few weeks, but Shawn Powers has a photo and blurb about him getting interrogated at Heathrow for six hours in the January Transworld. Also, the mostly in New York Dylan Reider interview photos are nuts. Kickflip up Fish Gap, front heel Bond Street, etc.

Kennedy Cantrell has a new part out for Iron Claw. Includes a Phil Rodriguez cameo. Is he the first one to hit all three of the five sets at the 27th Street crackhead park?

The raw footage of the Dane Burman Philly 5050 is wild.

Some Austin transplants skate in Bushwick on what looks like Puerto Rican Day, among other things. You have to admire a line at the new worst spot in New York A.K.A. Kent Step that doesn’t utilize the steps, too.

A video interview with Danny Supa, one of history’s greatest backside flippers. He talks about Dead End, Tree Fort, etc.

Here’s a brief HD bro cam edit from Johnny Wilson and friends.

Some throwaway footage from the Spam video. (Full video here.)

“Everyone thatโ€™s attractive seems to have some dolt boyfriend, or is literally made out of garbage.”

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kris Humphries had a bad week.

Quote of the Week
Beer Drinker #1: “What’s up with these Coors Lights?”
Beer Drinker #2: “The ones on the right I just put in, the ones on the left are cold.”
Beer Drinker #1: “You think I don’t know how to look at the blue strip, motherfucker?”

It’s supposed to go all the way up to 51 degrees today! Have a good one.

  • Great post. MNMFTB might be this years “yolo”. What would MNMFTB do? The possibilities are endless. I love how QS will acknowledge the little people. Best comments location in the business. Slap is fun, but a little too complicated. I love reading the newest QS posts and being able to see my nome de plum front and center. And I especially enjoy when Rockathon replies.

    I would like to see a little more original content. Next interview, throw in 30 seconds of original footage. Like the berrics, just not gay.
