We recently informed our two-man VX1000 department that their position would be cut in early 2015. After some tough analysis of current media trends in the skateboard industry, we came to the sad realization that employing people specifically for the execution of all VX1000-related tasks was not economically sound.

It’s tough to see our VX1000 department go, but that’s business :(

We didn’t have the heart to tell them they’re being laid off around the holidays, so their final day ended up being today. Before we sent them off with a sizable severance package and the accompaniment of two buxomly young ladies shaking their derrieres to Rae Sremmmmurururud’s “Throw Some Mo,” we figured we’d give our VX guys one last assignment, for old times sake.

Who but Johnny Wilson, of Paych and Horny fame, hates the VX1000 more, but would still have a surplus of un-used VX1000 clips? Given Video Blogs’ metamorphosis into HD, these leftovers from Paych went to our now-defunct VX1000 department, who included an unfortunate subliminal message in the music supervision.

‘Hella Sexts’ – QS Drop Offs, Volume 3

drop offs 3

Fab once famously stated that he doesn’t bring problems from the nineties in the two thou’. We’ve been abiding by similar principles. There’s not much use in bringing footage from 2014 into 2015. That shit is dead, b.

(As an added bonus to The Great 2014 Footage Purge of January 2015, I also somehow coerced Johnny Wilson into sending over the Paych extras since he no longer has any use for VX1000 footage. That’ll be online in a week or so.)

Below is the stuff that was leftover from filming for the Christmas clip. Antonio warm-ups, bananas, night sessions, how exactly someone managed to break four boards within a twenty-minute span, parkour, and of course, Matt Perez losing his bagel.

No music, but if you need some tunes, what else is worth listening to these days besides Rich Gang? (That’s not actually an *official* release, contrary to what it says.)

P.S. Apologies for downtime yesterday. Comment or email if you’re still having issues.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas. This our our tenth Christmas clip. It is also the shortest out of the ten, but that’s due to some stuff for upcoming projects getting put aside :)

We’ve never issued an apology for poor filming before. We alienated anyone who could be offended by bad filming in 2007 at the very latest. However, the worst filmed clip in this entire video is one of Jake Johnson, who is the best, and a long-time benefactor of the steady hands of Ryan Garshell, Bill Strobeck, Brengar et al. Sorry about that. First and last time you’ll see an apology for really bad filming on here.

Enjoy your holiday and the 50+ degree days up ahead.

Features Max Palmer, Dallas Todd, Keith Denley, Jake Johnson, Zach Baker, Pad Dowd, Lurker Lou, Alexander Mosley, Kevin Tierney, Josh Velez, Nick Nunez, Connor Champion, Andre Page, Kadeem Walters, Matt Perez, Alex Olson, Ty Lyons, Sweet Waste, Antonio Durao, Mike Gigliotti, Johnny Wilson, and Cyrus Bennett.

Contributing filmer: Andre Page.

Don’t Tell ‘Em: QS Best of 2014

dj mustard

Not since the Neptunes has a single producer completely dominated every facet of musical life the way Mustard has these past 12-24 months. It felt only right that our annual recycled footage wrap-up acknowledge his works of one-key brilliance. It probably isn’t sustainable long-term, but thank you Dijon, for a very enjoyable 2014.

…and yeah, had to edit it to one non-Dijon exception. 2014 will without a doubt be remembered as Mustard’s year — even Drake seemed less relevant by comparison — but there was one tune that cut through all the yellow, and got right to the heart of all our problems. It even helped you forget that it was sung by a total piece of shit, at least for a few minutes. Shouts out to T-Bird for help on da mix.

Off Brand: A Quartersnacks D.I.Y. Spot Montage

November 7th, 2014 | 3:16 am | Footage | 4 Comments

Beyond the unwritten rules and manual labor behind Shorty’s, at the end of the day, it’s simply just one of the best places to skate in the area. Quartersnacks has always been partial to skateboarding administered on low ledges and flatground, but we stepped out of our comfort zone and enlisted some independent contractors for the this edit. Between helping out with the build (which, by the way, already has a new extension on it and a clam shell forming in the corner), this is what we pulled through with. We tried to use to Luther Vandross Brick City Street Styles montage as a reference for this one, except it’s impossible to make something as good.

Thanks to Levi’s Skateboarding for their support in helping us leave something permanent behind at the spot :)
