This isn’t exactly a “re-edit,” since the footage originates from random clips and not an actual part, not to mention that a handful of it is new. The stuff you recognize is from the X-Games “Real Street” parts (2010, 2011) and those UXAclips promoting Zered’s guest board this past summer. The rest of it is unseen. Just think of it as a post-State of Mind part. Zered is pretty good at skateboarding, in case you forgot. Sorry Gucci, but it’s been a loonngg time since the big homie Dennis Coles has made it into a QS clip. Happy 10/17 regardless (celebrate here, here or here.) Filmed by: R.B. Umali, Joe Bouillot, Jason Jenkins, Steve Marino and Richard Quintero.
As promised, here’s pretty much all of the Jake Johnson footage that came out after Mind Field, edited to Curtis Jackson’s ten-year-old late-summer hit. Everything is ripped from YouTube, so there are no skate noises. (Who the hell knows where that Manolo guy found the patience to re-dub skate noises over skate video rips. God bless him for doing so though.) We’re not dubbing skate noises and don’t have raw footage, so that typically means the clip is getting slapped together less meticulously (see here) than usual, and edited to the last song that anyone less-idiotic would use for a Jake Johnson part. Sourced from the recent Brick Harbor clip, the Destructo mini part, all the Map Masquerade footage, the Skateboarder Amazon mini-videos, Bill Strobeck’s clips, and the Gravis “VX is Dead” section.” No “video art” or gratuitous non sequiturs included.
“It’ll probably be edited to Bone Thugs or some shit.” — “Quartersnacks” Google Alert from the Slap message board discussing the Ramondetta remix. One of the finer moments in QS Google Alert history.
No, it’s not edited to Bone Thugs. But it is edited to something equally irreconcilable with any soundtrack expectations you’d have for a Peter Ramondetta part, much in the tradition of that time Westgate went to Mars. Considering No Way Out holds “First CD I ever bought in my life” status for a sizable portion of the Quartersnacks front office, utilizing one of its better-known moments is long overdue. Anyone could hypothetically skate to this song. It doesn’t discriminate. (P.S. One last Real Since Day One clip with *unseen* footage coming soon.)

As per the results of your votes for the third installment of the QS Since Day One remixes, Peter Ramondetta’s part is the next, and final full-part chapter from the video. If you’re familiar with this website’s soundtrack biases, and have seen a Ramondetta part before, you already know that the music associated with each couldn’t be further apart. Luckily, the crew at Real is pretty “Do whatever the hell you want” about everything, allowing us to create perhaps the first non-metal / AC/DC / angry-white-music Ramondetta part. Sorry to disappoint the people (i.e. Marquez) who would blurt out “Don’t say motherfucker, motherfucker” at random moments for the entire year after Roll Forever came out. We’d consider utilizing Turbonegro if they had a song with a 2 Chainz feature. They might just be the only musical act on the planet who have yet to summon his services for a guest verse.
Here’s a more soulful rendition of Dennis Busenitz’s Since Day One part (that seemed to have worked for S.F. videos in thepast.) Real is also holding a poll over on their Facebook page for the next and maybe last part from Since Day One that you would like to see edited to “Cashing Out” (kidding) remixed by Quartersnacks. Democracy only works when people participate, so go over there and vote, because you guys all blew it on the voting for the Fred Gall thing and let the kids win.
