#interesting: How Stevie Wonder & Gil Scott-Heron campaigned to turn MLK Day into a holiday.

Snacks hid inside the mattress

Um, what?

#TRENDWATCH2016: Prop street skating hehehe ;)

New edition of Lurk NYC’s “NY Times” series, featuring a bunch of Cee-Lo extras.

No thinktank in #modern #skateboarding has changed the way people skate via Instagram as much as the Blobys have. They’re like the French New Wave of skateboard Instagram dude. After a Vince-based IG mix a few weeks back, someone put together a full, fifteen minute mix of all [most?] of their IG videos.

“Whether he knew it or not, a Bowie song in a skate video was more than just another song in the credits ━ you had to fucking earn that song.” Can’t say another artist’s passing has ever resulted in such an outpour of reflection from skate media outlets.

New Pete Eldridge footage! New J.B. Gillet footage! The Cliché team in Paris, unfortunately sans Lucas. Despite having seen that Créteil brick bank spot in videos for two-plus decades, there hasn’t been really much footage of people skating it like a halfpipe (way harder than it looks tbh.) All the footage is super fun :)

Is it even fair to have Antonio in All City Showdown anymore? You probably caught the “Best of” on Thrasher already, but holy hell, that line at the Williamsburg monument. Also here’s some bonus footy why not? Antonio heavy warm up at Gardner via Dre.

The city of Philadelphia is pathetic.

Quick, sorta legible bit of the Jake Johnson interview from the GX1000 article in the new Thrasher. x3 on the whole only switch tricks in 2015 down Hooters rail thing.

Behind the scenes of Jenkem’s Tim O’Connor Show, how New Jersey gives you #perspective, and the increasing ubiquity of the skateboard podcast.

Have a suspicion that Tiago Lemos’ secret is a bit more sophisticated than “rice, beans and lots of acai,” since half the skaters with jobs in New York live off that stuff…

[Fucking Awesome + Hockey] x the early 2000s ON Video Magazine.

Gigliotti is skating in Cali dude. Shout out 235 E. 5th Street.

New Cell Jawn video from the Brooklyn Nike park.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Can’t wait for that Spurs-Warriors WCF.

  • Antonio is the best skateboarder to come from the American east coast since westgate. As for the Canadian east coast sk8ers they haven’t been lacking, they just can’t get u.s media to notice them

  • It’s sad they are tearing down love park. I hope they don’t tear down the brooklyn banks as well. At least we still got les and the new nike park now.
