Some cool rain would be cool right now.

Although it’s a lime green carbonated beverage puff piece a lot of the time, this 15-minute mini doc on Enrique Lorenzo on high grade steroids A.K.A. Tiago Lemos is a chill feel-good story to start your week off. If you don’t want to deal with the carbonated propaganda, Village Psychic just dropped a Tiago Lemos remix yesterday, using footage from We Are Blood and his past few parts.

HD video blog #22 from Johnny Wilson and Conor Prunty.

These videos are the best. Antosh and other Canadian boys in Europe.

A minute of #lowimpact Andrew Reynolds footage.

The Skateboarder’s Journal did an awesome interview with Mike Blabac about some of his most iconic Love Park photographs. Shout out to the era when shoeboxes had pro model specific designs. Definitely wish I kept some of those :( and also good God the frame on the Kalis Tre Flip™ before the one they actually ended up running

Seeing someone do a line where they walk up the five after the two-up-four-down at the Jersey City Post Office still gives me a fuzzy feeling on the inside. Shout out to one of the greatest little kid spots on the east coast.

Late on this but apparently somebody switch front blunted the Flushing grate?

There’s a good bit of vintage New York footage in this video for the upcoming Huf and Chocolate Keenan Forever collab + Ride interviews Huf, Gino and Steven Cales about some of their fondest Keenan memories. “He opened my eyes to [the fact] that there’s different types of people in the world, just respect everybody.”

Theories released a teaser for the Traffic video, due out later this year.

An extended interview with Patrick O’Dell about the evolution of Epicly Later’d.

Straight no comply into the Courthouse Drop, among other things in Shane Farber’s Gentleman’s Club part.

It’s a Boston video, but there’s a lot of New York footage. Jordan Rodrigues’ Gem part.

You can skate the backside for regular out ledge at Ziegfeld for now.

Well, this makes perfect sense re: the Fat Kid skatepark.

The last factory on earth that produces VCRs will cease production at the end of July.

We waited nearly two decades to find out who paged Kareem Campbell (“it was just a homie“) in what was apparently the only *two* pager checks in skateboard video history. However, videos were sparse then. There was a finite amount of skateboard material released in a given month that obsessing over minutiae like who was paging Kareem seemed like an adequate use of brainpower.

Who are we kidding man. Nothing changed. We’re still over here thinking about the saammee duummbb shhiitt — the only difference now is that you can text Connor Champion to find out he was playing to the Future and Young Thug song off Esco Terrestrial rather than waiting twenty years for an Australian skateboard website to ask him about what was coming from the speaker he was holding mid nollie nose manual nollie flip.

Wade D New York footage is always ♥♥♥

We made it to week two! Heavy on the Euro videos and Instagram clips this week. Now including links to the original parts, although haven’t created a title card to include the names of the skaters in the actual clip yet. One step at a time hehe :) so will probably get to that for next week’s edition. Have a good weekend everyone, and good luck with that 95+ degree Saturday ;)

P.S. As much as it pains me to say this, the new Jeremih is probably gonna be more crucial for the remainder of this summer than the new Gucci. (We soft though.) Then again, this is the dude who made The Writing on the Wall, so he doesn’t really need to prove anything. “Everybody Looking” the six-year-old song still goes though.

10) Liam McCabe — “Mag Minute” 9) Tjark Theilker — Adidas Away Days German Team Montage 8) “168H Berlin Starring the German Converse Cons Skate Team” 7) Grey x Nike SB – Doggie 5) Zion Wright — “Magnified” 4) Adrian Del Campo via Instagram 3) Andrew Reynolds — Coffee 2) Pedro Attenborough via Instagram 1) Andy Stone via Instagram

Salute to any brave souls skating today. Supposed to hit almost 100.

Josh Stewart uploaded Quim Cardona’s Static IV part to YouTube this weekend.

“By the time the 1980s rolled around, neurotic Americans had a myriad of threats from which to choose, including annihilation via thermonuclear war with the Soviet Union, drugs, and lil’ old Satan—vis-à-vis metal. Interestingly, all three of these all-consuming fears produced timeless art, i.e. Red Dawn, Rocky IV, Straight Outta Compton, and the 101 Natas “Devil Worship” board. Frozen in Carbonite examines the relationship between satanic iconography and skateboarding.

“[Ricky Oyola] had no pop. He had some tricks but he was a jock, man. He was good but he wasn’t Fred Gall.” Chromeball interviewed Brooklyn native, Ryan Hickey.

Big week for opinions re: Oyola. Bobshirt interviewed Danny Garcia. And nobody sit here and talk like Chad Fernandez hasn’t altered the course of skateboard history.

The Shady One™ has a website up for his new brand: Iggy.nyc.

The new Sour promo gets our best Euro vid of 2016 [thus far] nod. Friday’s QS Top Ten had bits of it, but that full Gustav Tonneson part is awesome.

A video interview with Philly Santosuosso that breaks down the realities of running a skateshop. [Sidebar: Ok, we got a “Married to the Game” instrumental, but could we please get one of the Esco Terrestrial intro without all the talking over it?]

Midtown, 2010-2014 via Hit You Off Management to Bernard Herrman’s last film score.

Taji / Vice skated a bunch of Trump buildings with Leo, Billy, etc. — but somehow missed the one on 47th and 1st Avenue that Matt Daniels 5050ed the sign at in his Outdated part (fwiw, it probably has the best skate spot out of any Trump building, but those benches on 60th and Broadway were fire when we were like, 13.)

Chill summer iPhone video via Jesse Alba with some Paul Tucci sightings :)

The Seasons boys are premiering a new video on the 23rd.

Wallies on moving Citibikes and people starting to skate the Dumbo bump to hill / 2006 Spot of the Summer again Evan Dittig’s HYD part.

YO, what the hell is the deal with that Fat Kid Skatepark? It seems like it has looked like this for the past half year plus. This would be an ideal time of year for elsewhere to take some of the crowd that makes its way to L.E.S. by noon, or like, nice to have another skatepark with some shade. Who’s got the insider info? They may as well have let the manny pad, rail and benches run for the summer…

With NBA free agency cooling down, the QS Sports Desk takes the summer off. Why are footing the six-figure bill on their salary, if they only really cover one league? We came up with the perfect solution for our ruffian staff of ESPN internship rejects.

Following all the skate clips that get spewed out on the internet in a given week is hard work — IG, Thrasher, Slap, whatever fringe sites you may care to indulge — it’s a lot. And we here at QS are not shy about our love for SportsCenter. We’ve discussed that the third repeat of the day’s “Top Ten Plays” has long been the shortcode for “buddy, you need to get the fuck out of the house and get some sunlight” on here before. So we mashed the two together. We watch the clips so you don’t have to, and cull all of the highlights from a given week into a digestable countdown.

We accept contributions and suggestions, too! Be it for format, or inclusions. Be sure to @ us on anything #relevant to our interests for consideration, using the #QSTOP10 hashtag. Noseslides get special attention.

Featured Skaters: 10) Dustin Henry via @chuckmvp 9) Paul Tucci 8) Danny Brady 7) Nisse Ingemarrson 6) Farid Ulrich 5) Jasper Dohrs 4) Gustav Tønnesen 3) Gustav Tønnesen 2) Greyson Fletcher via @monsantokills 1) Forrest Edwards

In the future, would it be easier to include the skater’s name inside the video? Open to any and all suggestions here. Have a great weekend :)
