Rest in Peace, #14

Aaron Herrington’s Eastern Exposure part is cool.

The Cafe Creme blog interviewed Cyrus.

America, please copy everything Denmark does re: skateboarding. (Relevant.)

“Our culture has produced an amazing array of photographers and filmmakers and even sculptors, so it’s not a lack of work ethic or creative energy that’s stopping us from producing poets. But I don’t see it as dumbed down as much as hesitant and cautious. Look around: it’s not just that we’re unsure what skateboarding means, but we’re unsure whether it’s even a good idea to consider its meaning. Skateboarding is supposed to be fun, after all, it’s the most fun thing. Taking it too seriously can dampen or even kill this fun, so, you know, fuck it. Let’s look at the pictures.” The Deaf Lens interviewed Kyle Beachy, a guy who is really good at writing about skateboarding.

All This Mayhem, the cocaine-addled Pappas brothers documentary, is now streaming on Netflix. Quartersnacks review from the fall can be found here. “Fuck off Hawk, you fucking wanker. You can’t even flip your board you old prick.”

Solid Iron Claw Skates Dallas and Austin trip montage is now up.

Always love these guys’ videos: Another one from Budapest’s Rios crew.

Jake is on a new company and JNCOs are coming back.

Mike Sass’ Duzzed video is now online in full.

Ripped Laces looks back at the early 2000s tech of Savier shoes.

“I still think the beauty of skating, in its truest form, is this solitary activity. It has to do with self-reliance and dealing with loneliness in a productive way.”

SMLTalk’s Boston winter spot directory is pretty universal for the northeast.

53 seconds of unseen Gino Iannucci footage.

“We’re out there breaking our ass trying to find this kid, and you’re up there fucking around in Nyack.” A teaser for Bleach, Paul Young’s new video featuring Dick Rizzo, Erik Martinez, Josh Wilson, Mark Humienik and others.

Found this rather interesting: the world famous Sants spot in Barcelona is unmodifiable, on account of it receiving an architecture award in 1983. The city is, however, starting to build designated places to skate in each district of the city, which could stir things up a bit in what’s basically the skate spot capital of Europe.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Three-minute Anthony Mason YouTube mix. As far as last week, these 27 seconds just about sum up the 2014-15 Knicks season.

Quote of the Week: “I’m rich in unpaid invoices.” — Pad

A month late on this, but Uncle Murda’s “2014 Rap Up” is incredible. It’s like the ones Skillz used to do, but actually funny. Must embed situation.

CRAZY.

  • The Rios crew videos are as 90’s as it gets. There´s nothing better out there. They simply are the best.

  • Did skaters ever actually wear JNCO’s? I always thought they were whack as fuck. Where I came from, only wannabe raver d-bags who wished they could skate rocked JNCO’s. We were all wearing BLInd jeans, Fuct shorts, Ghetto Wear cargos, and size 48 khakis from the thrift store. JNCO was for posers.
