Quartersnacks Top 10 — June 23, 2017

June 23rd, 2017 | 10:40 am | Daily News | 1 Comment

Any week that starts with Dustin “Skater You’d Be Most O.K. With Your Daughter Dating” Henry is a good week, and having too many Jamie Foy tricks to choose from is always a good problem to have :) Also, yeah Spirit Quest came out over a year ago, but Chris Jones’ part didn’t hit the internet til this week.

Edit: Apparently can’t spell anyone on Baker’s name right… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Make sure you wish E.J. a happy birthday when you see him. Have a good one.

The QS webstore is restocked with new colors of the swim shorts, a couple new tees, and bags for summer Rockaway trips :) Thank you for the support ♥

Chris Jones’ Spirit Quest section is now playing over at Free. Really sick Soho noseslide opener, and generally some of the most creative (not in an annoying way obvs) + good-looking New York footage in recent memory. Perfect part.

Mehring put together a rad article about those couple of weeks that the Banks were open for The Skateboard Mag. See everyone there again in 2023 ;)

Every time Dustin Henry footage comes out, I remember that he’s my favorite skater that I’d be O.K. with my non-existent daughter dating. Jake Kuzyk uploaded “Savers,” his first clip since The Antisocial Video dropped last year, which features a bunch of those guys + Alltimers, Dime, etc. affiliates.

Would rather watch T.J. skate flat at T.F. than ________. That half cab flip was bomb.

Looks just like most skaters’ apartments in Chinatown, tbh.

Erik Ellington tries on some snakeskin Palace Chelsea boots with Jenkem.

There are some chill Rowan Zorilla clips in Genesis’ summer iPhone montage.

The Bunt talks to Eli Reed about how the hell he figured out to be good at skating that manual pad at the Boston Aquarium and what was up with the “Taking Care of Business” #musicsupervision in State of Mind. Is switch tre into the Courthouse still an N.B.D? P.S. Eli, that switch 5050 hubba in the Bronx is gone man.

Somehow missed this a week ago, but “Putnam Avenue” is a formidable entry into this year’s “Summer Trip to New York”-clip cycle, featuring a couple Euros.

Merchants of Ill in Montreal via Max Hull. See everyone tomorrow :) ♥

Boil the Ocean points you in the direction of Danny Garcia’s “All City roots” for the site’s annual summer video mixtape series.

Quote of the Week
Inquisitive Gentleman: “Who was the best skater at your wedding?”
Nick Boserio: “Me.”

Love it when a Migos song about buying expensive stuff for girls gets turned into an anthem about starting businesses and shit.

Sorry 4 da wait today, love you :)

qs top 10 june 16

Shout to @illcommunicatio on Twitter for the photo ref ♥

Gonna go on record here and say this is probably the ~weirdest~ QS Top 10 ever. Had to dig in dark corners of all sorts of strange videos to summarize what happened in skateboarding this past week, but that’s OK given how insane the past two were ;)

Also, after an intense office debate, we switched the eventual #1 because the #2 comes from the least steez video ever made, despite what the the music supervision may lead you to believe. Have a good one ya.

Edit: Title should say Donta Hill* obviously. We’ve fired our titles guy.

Obvious first link: Three minutes of Rick Howard B-sides from the past ~five years.

The always brilliant Tennyson Corporation compiled all of Kalis and Stevie’s footage to appear in issues of 411 into fuzzy feeling remix video. Yo all those flip tricks, wow.

2016 Q.S.S.O.T.Y Daniel Kim London footage via “Regulate 005” from Jenkem.

Mark Humienik made a six-minute Hi8 (?) montage of the Bronze boys.

“Man, I’m just trying to live. I ain’t trying to pay no fucking dues. You only pay dues if you want something out of it. I’m not paying anything. I just want to be able to wake up and be able to go skateboard every day.” — An interview with Philly Santosuosso from Humidity Skateshop for Real’s Actions Realized fundraiser.

Damn, so if the 2015 #trendwatch was backside 360ing out of 5050s, is the 2017 #trendwatch doing that no comply backside 360 where your foot doesn’t touch the ground out of 5050s? Who can even keep up man ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“The resulting photos are personal and gorgeous, using LOVE as a subject to tell its own, final chapter and representing the parable of American urbanism: nothing lasts forever.” Adam Abada re: Jonathan Rentschler’s book on the final years of Love Park.

Someone made an Antonio-only mix of the previous Numbers clip.

Haven’t listened to either yet tbh, because I’m typing this with no headphones from a cafe where the coffee tastes like ramen, but here’s the latest episode of The Bunt with Mark Suciu, and an episode of Thrasher radio with Gonz. You know what to expect ;)

“It seems that defensive architecture, even as it becomes commonplace and increasingly surrounds us, still goes under most people’s radar, which makes the problem all the more insidious.” Village Psychic has a cool interview about using sculpture to raise awareness about how public space is becoming less public.

Boil the Ocean post for those who don’t read Boil the Ocean posts: “In Lieu of Some Longwinded and Semi-Coherent Blog Post, Here’s a Bunch of Justin Henry Tricks.”

Four minutes of Sremmlife B-sides from Mick Robbins.

So happy that Gunplay and Mozzy found each other

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: As everyone mentally shifts from “Wow, the Warriors are going 16-0 in the postseason” to “wow, maybe this is going seven!” — allow us to revisit the complete 2016 timeline of J.R. Smith partying shirtless from Vegas to Cleveland. We thought this shit was going four last year too.

Quote of the Week: “Just wait until I fucking tell the habibis back in New York that they sold me half a chicken with no sauce.” — Josh Velez re: Copenhagen Halal food

Heard it’s finally summer back home ♥ :)

And the summer reminds me of Fetty Wap :( Miss you bro.

qs top ten june 9 2017

Any week with a new Sour video pretty much guarantees two or three of the top slots in the Top 10 and this week is no exception. Also, before you go out skating this weekend, Tommy May’s Out of Business part is perfect pre-session viewing. Gave it preferred placement on the countdown because, like, when’s the last time a flip trick on just a bank was the second-to-last trick in a part?

It’s colder where we’re at right now, but why does someone have a hoody on in every single picture from New York right now? It’s bumming me out. Have a good weekend?
