Lil’ Lui, big ollie. Photo by Brian Kelley. Remember when you could actually skate that spot? :(

What?

Okay?

Sure? (Speaking as objectively as possible, is Daewon the most *talented* skateboarder ever in terms of impossibilities made realities on a skateboard? And why does he look like a club promoter in all his new footage?)

The Deaf Lens has a new interview with Rick Howard about 20 years of Girl/Choc.

Omg noooooooo. R.I.P. the Sony DCR-VX1000 1996-2014. Paych DVDs soon.

Some useless #listicles to click through: 1) 18 Skateable Sculptures in the United States. “We, like, see the world differently dude.” 2) The Ten Longest 5050s. 3) The “Best” (Only?) Skateboarder Cameos in Movies. Wasn’t Koston in Her?

The Skartorialist is back after a long hiatus.

Dipset-tinged music supervision is also apparently back, after a few years of falling out of fashion. Now, who’s gonna skate to “Catfish?”

Muckmouth constructed a a useful graph of skateboarding’s collective coming-to-terms with Ryan Sheckler. Fam turned up on them jump ramps though…

Newport, the Banks & Javitz Center, circa ~1999ish?

Some Death Video “lost tapes” footage. These kids are sick because they still skate midtown. Respect for putting up with the frustration. Many have given up on it :(

The new Transworld video, Outliers, will be premiering at Sunshine Cinemas (Houston and Forsyth) tomorrow (October 21.) There will be three showings: 7, 8:15 & 9 P.M. Haven’t been this excited for a TWS video in a very, very long time, but it’s mostly due to Zered and Cromer. You can grab tickets at most skate shops. More info here.

A restaurant adjacent to some recently concreted cobblestones pours kitchen grease all over the banks now. You’re going to get hurt if you try skating them.

Always wondered how Times Square peep shows are still open in 2014…

Stop going to college.

  • Why are so many of the down river dudes wearing Chuck Taylors? Al davis’s last two clips feature a heavy dose of the white Chucks, which is probably the worst color, of the worst shoe to skate in. Is it a Nike protest? Nike fucking owns them. Is it this normcore that is so popular with certain white NYC transplants and a black kid wth braces? Growing up in NJ, in the shadow of NYC, I was taught to look sharp. And the Nikes on my feet keep my cipher complete.

    Peace to the Gods and the Earths.
