Quartersnacks Top 10 — September 22, 2017: A Login Lava Special Edition

September 22nd, 2017 | 10:27 am | Daily News | No Comments

A week after wondering when a single video would dominate the countdown, it happened. This week’s edition is all from the Logan video — in part to celebrate him coming through with a feel-good video (on deadline!) that is sure to power everyone through the fall and winter, but also because shit otherwise just got way too crazy this week. Halfway through the week, we could’ve made a top 20. Between the new Atlantic Drift, the “Thrash & Burn” video, Herman Stene’s Free part, Jarne’s pro part, and whatever silly slappy tricks we could’ve pulled off IG…it would’ve been too much.

P.S. Aidan’s part is impossible to pick a single trick from ♥

Enjoy the summer weekend ♥

Colin Sussingham has been posting a bunch of photographs from the 917 video over on The Local Weather. The Max photo above is stolen from there obvs.

Here is a YouTube link to the 917 video, for all those averse to fringe video players. Still overwhelmed by how contagiously good vibes that entire video is.

So sick of the being bad at skateboarding on purpose trend.

“What’s the hardest trick in skateboarding?” “Getting a job.” There’s been a relatively decent batch of content about skateboarding’s most difficult maneuver floating around this past week: Heath Kirchart ranks all the jobs he’s had since retiring from pro skateboarding + Brandon Westgate talks about lumber mills and cranberries.

Brian Panebianco made an eleven minute documentary that highlights one of the bonds that formed between a homeless Love Park local and the park’s skateboarders.

The new Gang Corp edit is sick.

“Unlike Alien Workshop, DC recognized a new generation preparing to don swishy pants and opened its East Coast flow spigots, and now spot-searching Droors-endorser John Shanahan helps DC find a path after long years of wandering.” Boil the Ocean dwells on how DC is re-routing its approach to the skate shoe landscape.

Bill Strobeck put together a VX best-of edit from roughly 2000-2004 for Thrasher.

Cafe Creme has an interview with #QSTOP10 fave, Magnus Bordewick.

Gotta respect a “D.C. to Boston” edit that completely skips New York. This place can be a real pain in the ass, but at least we got an hour at Big Screen Plaza yesterday.

Rob Campbell footage will never not get a link ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Skate Jawn made a Glory Challenge edit with a bit of street skating mixed in.

Spot Updates: The banks under the 125th Street 1 train station have been under construction for a year or two. The oft-skated ones on the south side of 125th have a massive curb at the start now, but you can skate one on the north side of the street — although someone’s going to need to throw some Bondo on that crack right before it.

Quote of the Week
Jason Byoun: “I’m depressed yo.”
Inquisitive Gentleman: “Why?”
Jason Byoun: “Summer’s over yo.”

The 917 Video Exists

It’s September 17th, the 917 video exists, we can’t keep the joke going forever, but we can wonder if Stu is jealous that Hugo and Nolan have the two best slams in the video.

The best skate videos are the ones that make you smile, and it’s impossible to not smile and giggle your way through this one. Logan is the best and it’s going to be really sad when he flies back to L.A. in an hour.

Happy Birthday Adam Zhu and Colin Sussingham ♥

Quartersnacks Top 10 — September 15, 2017

September 15th, 2017 | 8:42 am | Daily News | No Comments

Since we’ve started these, the office has been curious as to whether there would ever be a video released that completely dominates the countdown, e.g. if #QSTOP10 was popping when the GX video dropped, it’s likely there would’ve been ten slots dedicated to it. Well, it didn’t make it to ten, but The DC Promo fell three short — even though some corners of our editorial board deemed the entire video should be disqualified because it features a willy grind nollie inward heelflip out.

Have a good one ♥

Remember

Still a surreal day on the calendar every year. Over the years, we have done several posts regarding how that day shaped our tiny corner of New York — An Interview With Zered Bassett About the Vicious Cycle House (several blocks from Ground Zero circa 2002-2003), February 2002 Transworld Article re: 9/11, Twin Towers skate photos, Twin Towers skate clips 1996-2001.

You’re in for an onslaught of recap content throughout the internet, but the Dime Glory Challenge was absolutely brilliant. Forever grateful to be skateboarding on the earth at the same time in history as these brilliant Canadian minds.

Watermelonism has some new embroidered tees and hats.

“What was harder to do: switch big flip Chinatown Double-Set or switch backside flip D7?” NY Skateboarding has a solid interview with Tyshawn Jones, reigning “Did you hear what _____ did?!” king of New York City.

Transworld interviewed Josh Kalis about the greatest kickflip ever done™.

We’re the last ones to continue beating the dead horse of varial flip pontification, but the one (you’ll know which one…) in Sami El Hassani’s all-around brilliant new clip for Pop Trading Company deserves some extra attention.

People began skating the new Harlem skatepark on 114th Street and First Avenue (conveniently located between Haiji’s and Patsy’s) this past week. Looks kinda like Cooper Park tbh. Troy posted a clip from it, but there are a few more floating around.

Yaje Popson warms up with avocados and nollie half cab switch backside 5-0s. No wonder he’s the only native T.F. local with his name on a skateboard ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

People are still pissed about you skating the plaza on 110th and 8th, and hopes for a new Byrdgang video are high in the QS office. Here’s a teaser for Byrdgang 3.

(When is Hijinx 2 dropping though?)

Here’s the raw footage from Dane Baker’s part for Lottie’s Skate Shop.

Jenkem has a Prodigy tribute mix by skateboarding’s official Mobb Deep ambassador.

Four minutes of nollie backside 180 heelflips throughout history.

Vice posted up a deleted scene from Bam’s Epicly Later’d of Kerry and Bam skating Kerry’s backyard ramp in Pennsylvania. Party at my house for the Muska one.

Happy belated birthday, Roy Ayers.
