It may be back to 25 degrees on Thursday, but at least it gets dark at 7!

When was the last time there was something as unanimously loved by skateboarders from all walks of life as Bobby Worrest’s all-Pulaski part? Has there even been a part predominantly (only?) filmed at a single plaza spot since Stevie in The Reason? Also, here’s Boil the Ocean theorizing on the correlation between the economic downturn and the ability for these sorts of parts to exist. Or something?

Probably listened to DJ Khaled’s McDonald’s commercials 40 times last week. Looks like these guys are equally big fans. (Are they better than Flex’s Western Beef commercials though?) “It’s a recession out there and I love food that’s only for $1!”

Brandon Westgate remixed via #Tumblr-as-an-aesthetic.

A VHS cam throwaway reel from the LurkNYC dudes. There are some cool photos of that crew over here as well.

Mudo Zine interviewed Neil Macdonald of Science Versus Life (which, for those who don’t know, could be considered the Chromeball of exclusively British skateboard magazines) about how skate coverage has changed, but also sorta stayed the same, i.e. energy drink ads have been around since before you started skating.

The perils of posting about Osiris D3s on your website: People Earth’s last remaining population of Gravers will hit you up offering $200 for a pair after a cursory Google search leads them your way.

Skateboarders are a confused bunch, so Kingpin took notice and compiled a #listicle of its most outrageous style switch-ups. Should we do a New York edition?

Transworld interviewed Joeface about working in the skate industry, and posted a bunch of his photos. (ICYMI: Joeface’s Tony Durao “Best of” remix.)

Really enjoyed this Lyon bro cam / party cam clip by French guys who love rap, ledges and beer. (J.B. Gillet cameos included.) Also really wish that Travis Scott beat got given to a better rapper.

R.I.P. Delancey Popeye’s :'(

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Russell Westbrook had a triple double in twenty minutes of play last week, but then the Thunder lost to the Lakers on national television due to a career game from…Jodie Meeks.

Quote of the Week:
Inquisitive Supreme Employee: “Matt, why aren’t you in school right now?”
19-Year-Old High School Sophomore: “It’s a half day.”
Inquisitive Supreme Employee: “It’s 10:30.”

Can this shit pls end? Thx. (BTW new gear available this week.)

  • Bobby’s kickflip into a Park Police paddy wagon was probably the sickest way to end a line at Pulaski
