As we enter the great unknown abyss of 2017, Quartersnacks will make the extra effort at embracing the things that make our world glow, and bringing them to the public’s attention (e.g. listened through the circa 2010 masterpiece of jubilance known as Suntrust Leland three times yesterday.)
To start, we took one of 2016’s more ~serious~ video outings, and remixed the 2014 Noseslider of the Year’s part with the same vibes that made 56 Tricks a perennial favorite Quartersnacks clip among office personnel.
Shout out to Roctakon for help on the mix ♥ and the Polar boys for sharing the footage.
Merry Christmas to whoever woke up with the stolen Beamer logo off Dre’s car under their tree.
Hate to pile on to 2016’s seemingly infinite supply of bad news, but this is the first year that we’re not coming through with a full Christmas clip. Although the pasttwo have admittedly lost the steam of say 2007’s tour de force, 2010’s G.O.A.T. or 2012’s shockingly productive fall — 2016 is the year when adult life caught up, and skateboarding in November/December outside of Tompkins or a skatepark just didn’t go down like it used to. Below are a few ~moody~ bits from the summer (!!!) to fill the place of a would-be Christmas clip.
Eleven years in a row of by-far the longest running annual web clip series ain’t so bad. Shout out to the O.G. Bryan Chin from who we ripped the idea off in the first place back in the early 2000s. Hope to make it back for the next one.
Features Daniel Kim, Connor Champion, Josh Velez, Andre Page, John Franco, Akira Mowatt, Matthew Perez, Lurker Lou, Keith Denley, Alexander Mosley, Thom Musso, Pryce Holmes. Filmed by Andre Page and Pad Dowd.
BUT, keep in mind that none of that may matter at all, since Dustin Henry’s Antisocial Video part is still around to warm your heart this holiday season. Congrats again to Dustin for winning our first annual Skater You Would Be Most OK With Your Daughter Dating Award! #perfectboy
Merry Christmas everyone. We’ll be back on Tuesday, December 27th.
Adam Zhu’s part from Emilio Cuilan’s DANY video is the next to go live. (Genesis Evans’ section went live two weeks ago.) Filmed and edited by E.J throughout the second half of 2015 and the first half of 2016 :) The DANY video is still available over on the DANY store. Support local businesses yaknow.
Aside from change, the only other constant is how much fun riding a skateboard is ♥ …and despite talking shit about how Mustard’s sound probably wasn’t sustainable long-term back when he ruled 2014, the guy managed to make it into three QS “Best Of” clips, three years in a row — an otherwise unprecedented feat.
2016 was a fun time provided you forget about all the terrible shit that happened around the world for a few minutes. Thanks to everyone who was along for the ride, thanks to anyone who reposted/retweeted/told a friend about anything we had going on, thanks to anyone who bought QS garms from their shop or the webstore, thanks to everyone who put us up while we were abroad, and thanks to everyone for just visiting and reading :) Love you all, stay warm out there, and have a great weekend.
