Late start to the end of the week ;) Heavy on the enders this week ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Is there an angle of that Jacopo back noseblunt this isn’t filmed from across the street?

And speaking of Milano Centrale, this part was a really good time even though it didn’t make the countdown. More of a longplayer, yaknow :)

R.I.P. AOL Instant Messenger. Have a good one.

Happy birthday Dre! Thanks for feeding every person we know for 10+ years.

Was wrong about the Muska Epicly Later’d airing last week, but it’s definitely airing this week, and the Tom Cruise coke movie is sick.

Free has a new part from 2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y, Leo Gutman. The guy’s eye for spots remains unparalleled after all these years.

“Chewy threw an ironing board at Lucien over this shit. The skate house, the skate house, the skate house—we’ve all been there.” TWS put their Palace in New York article online, which includes an interview with Jamal Smith, who doesn’t have any photos in it, but is the star of a pretty sick faux 411 “Wheels of Fortune” section.

“I think the reason nobody wanted to show us around was he fact we might have been a bit of an embarassment. Actually, that’s certainly the reason.” And even though it’s from last year, The Skateboarder’s Journal posted their Passport in New York article, with words from Callum Paul.

Summer’s over ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

YoooOOOooos Antonio’s Numbers part is insane, but you knew that already.

It’s amazing that people need to point out that they dislike front feeble laser flip outs in 2017 like it’s a kickflip backside tailslide or some shit. The Bunt’s new season kicked off last week, with what’s probably the most Canadian episode they’ve ever had.

F.A. uploaded a 46-minute compilation of B-sides and raw footage — some of which is unseen, some of which you’ll definitely recognize from past edits. Someone also turned all the episodes of “Atlantic Drift” into one single-stream 34-minute reel.

Theories posted Luke Malaney’s Traffic Look Left part, along with a quick interview. Can you believe Keith came through with a guest trick?!

“We’re utilitarian people. That’s what the fuck we do.” Village Psychic has an interview with Jake Phelps about the cost of living in the only place with higher rent than New York: San Francisco. (Free idea: You guys should do a story about skateboarders living with random Chinese families in New York.)

Boil the Ocean with an early weigh-in on 2017’s S.O.T.Y. race, but is there 1) a single person who follows skating that doesn’t think it should unequivocally be Tiago, and 2) if not, what possible reason could you have?

Some Minnesotans (?) enjoy some warm sun rays in New York with a vintage camera.

Quote of the Week
*Puts Mötley Crüe, “Kickstart My Heart” on*
Hjalte Halberg: “This song is so iconic.”

This one might end up being a bit #controversial, as a contest run got top honors (you know which one), but when was the last time a contest run had a switch front 5050 on a flatbar above a massive quarterpipe in it? No offense, but being a contest announcer sounds like a dreadful line of work though…

Have a good one :)

#TRENDWATCH2017 — 3rd Eye Vision at Columbus Park

September 26th, 2017 | 12:19 pm | Daily News | 6 Comments

Columbus Park had a storied ascent to the throne as Manhattan’s most skated street spot. Over a decade has passed since it was simply a kinked ledge or an eight-stair rail that our more talented colleagues could ollie over the top of. People began to skate up the two-block and indulge in combo tricks down the ledge, but something was…missing. Have sex with the same person enough times and you’ll find yourself hinting at deeply suppressed desires via the casual “hey, wouldn’t it be funny if we ____.” The same could be said about spots that have managed to avoid knobs for 10+ years.

Given his open line of communication with Jah, it should come as no surprise that Yaje Popson was one of early proponents of Columbus Park’s nouvelle vague — via grinding the vertical part of the handrail before riding down the steps, and by angling his third eye towards the perpendicular at the now-mundane and lesser-seen kinked ledge.

But brains have been expanding at Mulberry and Worth Street early into the fall #trend season, most visibly in the 917 video, where Alex Olson’s one-time favorite skateboarder, Chris Millic, presented us with a three-pronged route from one level of the court to the other, and basically permanent Q.S.S.O.T.Y., Max Palmer, found a corner to the same ledge that nobody else had dared to examine.

As long as you walk outside and hear “waaaaaa waaa waaa” coming from car speakers every thirty seconds, the summer is going to keep getting extended. This Insta remix of QS office fave, Ruben Spelta, should help you stay stoked for the rest of the week — though why not use, like, an actual M.J. song. Euros, man.

New York is a big place and it’s always refreshing to watch videos dominantly filmed outside of the L.E.S. Park/Williamsburg/Columbus Park groupthink bubble. Angel Fonseca’s new 17-minute video, “Stay Fufu,” chronicles the extended fam of all the locals at the Bronx Courthouse.

This is the exact opposite of Dime’s “Speed Challenge.”

German fashion and art mag, 032c, profiled Jason Dill and Fucking Awesome.

A question that has gently been whispered among conspiracy theorists for years now: Did the United States government fake Tony Hawk landing the 900?

“As I watched I began to wonder if he had any right to film and share what he did. Then I remembered his tenure in LOVE, his legacy of videos, and what it’s like to be a skateboarder in a space.” Nice to have another skate website with actual words on it in this day and age. Our bud Adam Abada started a site called Stoke of the Week, which is, simply put, a weekly log of what single skate video got him psyched that past week. The first edition is re: Brian Panebianco’s “Love Park Photographer” short.

..aanndd here’s a teaser for Chris Mulhern’s upcoming Love Park doc, “15th & JFK.”

Transworld interviewed the nerd behind Bob Shirt.

Fred Gall and Taji ventured out to an abandoned building in New Jersey that contains a natural full pipe. Avid QS readers might find it familiar ;)

A French New Wave rendition of a “Summer Trip to New York” montage. Or something? And some guys from Spokane did a …Summer Trip to New York™.

A 8mm film test montage in New York with some familiar faces and a song I muted after .3 seconds, but I’m partial to any Skooly and Thug collaboration, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

QS Sports Desk: Shout out Lebron. Sorry for rooting against you so many times. #2011mavs4ever. (Don’t read the replies unless you want your blood to boil.)

Quote of the Week:

So stoked that the Muska Epicly Later’d and the Tom Cruise coke movie drop the same week :)
