Three hours late may not have been much in 2010, but on the 2016 internet, we might as well be posting the new Bronze promo in the 2010 archives. We blew it.
“Plug” is a departure from the past few rounds of Bronze projects not because it is in HD — not their first video to ditch the VX — but because it’s far more conservative with the nostalgic non sequiturs that made it one of the western world’s most ripped-off skate video franchises. At the same time, it’s a return to the late-2010s, post-Flipmode / pre-merch availability era that made us fall in love with the Bronze age. There’s a revived Phil Rodriguez not seen since the 2011 Q.S.S.O.T.Y Caviar days, an ender part from the venerable Trife alumnus William McFeely, and a loving tribute to the God K.T. in which he appears for one clip like Danny Way in Photosynthesis credits except way tighter — making “Plug” a two-sided love letter to new and old Bronze fans alike. Also shout out to Nick Ferro for consistently making all of us underweight skateboarders proud, part after part :)
New iPhone video via Genesis featuring the N.Y. Ramp Co. quarterpipe, double-curb rainbow concoction at 12th & A, Keith Denley’s first clip of 2016, and other notable developments to occur in lower Manhattan skateboarding this past month.
The GX1000 video premieres in New York on next Tuesday, April 19th. No info on venue yet, but *assuming* it will be where every skate video premiere in New York is :) Teaser here, and GX photo feature here.
In honor of the highly decadent Alltimers collaboration that commenced with a Hudson River boat party yesterday evening, we had to celebrate. The following is a mash-up of their past few web clips, edited to some tunes that you probably heard while grinding on a sophomore at a high school dance between illicit vodka sips in the bathroom.
Hope everyone made it home safe and sound from the boat! Features Ben Blundell, Dustin Henry, Charles Rivard, Andrew Wilson and Torey Goodall.
Given our status as a #core fashionable media house, we’re not in the habit of posting indoor videos. It’s only happened in 2011 (when the entire winter was spent wasting away partying and watching Amare Stoudemire-era Knicks games with a false sense of hope), and last year (that was the Sremmlife winter, if you remember correctly.) But sometimes, you just can’t go skateboarding with the sky glistening above you, even in the middle of April. Quick House of Vans clip below.
Features Brian Brown, Dana Ericson, Pad Dowd, Zered Bassett, Sweet Waste and Clay Kessack. Dude remember when the Warriors lost to the Wolves?
Wait, is switch 360 flips not looking good like a known consensus? Switch backside flips, maybe…tough for those to not roll on the ground, but can think of many good-to-great switch tres. For instance: Antonio and Zeb are both incredible switch tre-ers.
