Late Start…

^This thing is at 50 Kent (@ N 11th Street) for a lil’ bit.

The Alltimers webstore is now live with new boards, hats and tees.

Ok, no more skating rails in the 6XL QS tees. (Labor still got them hehe.)

Reportpotholes.org is a new, Jersey-based website centered around a single featured clip a la the defunct Popills.com. Via the same dudes who brought you In Crust We Trust and Brick City Street Styles. The first one is solid.

New part from the always underrated Ron Deily — though you wonder if he finally starts getting the credit he has long deserved given today’s no comply and wallie-favoring political climate. (This one is another personal favorite.)

Free Skate Mag interviewed another oft-underrated New Jersey legend, Pete Eldridge — one of the few guys to successfully pull off a comeback in skateboarding, and winner of the 2012 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. award (for a single line.)

Village Psychic came through with a four-minute Jordhan Trahan remix, that probably stands as his most comprehensive full “part” to-date.

Michael Carroll (who turns 40 today), does a frontside kickflip over a mini picnic table at the 3:30ish mark of this clip from the Stay Flared tour.

Backing 50 Cent #musicsupervision for a 2015 video part. Miss the guy :(

More terrible skateparks!

Usually not into internet writing that tells me “WHY ______ IS IMPORTANT,” but SMLTalk is spot on re: the virtues of the Dime Glory Challenge.

The Blabac x Stevie photos are among the best skate photos that exist.

The only thing I remember from Mountain Dew: The Movie is Tiago Lemos’ footage and everyone unanimously agreeing that he is now the best skateboarder alive, so you should watch his Gold Goons section again.

Ummmmmmmmmm

With the reminder that 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ album just reached the ten-year mark since its release, people past their teenage years were all given cause to feel old today. Well, here’s another reason for life to flash before your eyes: Tyshawn Jones and Frankie Spears’ part in the 2012 Schleyer Video. (Note: Tyshawn Jones was three-years-old when Get Rich or Die Tryin’ came out.) Though the video is recent, a lot of the footage is already past history, at least when considering the rate at which kids in their early teens film these days. Anticipate west coast excursions that have yet to be released in video form.

Also, did T.J. pass the hypothetical “First New Yorker With Backside Noseblunt Down Handrail Capabilities” benchmark? (“New Yorker” in a five boroughs definition — Long Islanders and New Jerseyians don’t count as otherwise it would be a concession to the widely accepted theories of Chris Nieratko and Ian Reid regarding the origins of the best New York skaters.) Either way, both of these kids are really good, in a way that only recently-born skaters can be.

D’s come, we dump the diesel in battery acid.”

50 Cent x Twitter x Quartersnacks Decks

Quartersnacks reader Clayton Jones mocked up these two decks showcasing 50 Cent’s disapproval of skateboarding as “a way of life.” Good to know that 50 will not be one of the few rappers suffering from an identity crisis to pick up a skateboard. His words of wisdom will forever be immortalized on this board though, provided that it actually exists, which is anyone’s guess…

“It’s just a bunch of words, with no plot, no middle, no end, and they’re always angry.”

Monday links on a Tuesday. The lack of hail outside is much appreciated.

If you are from, or have friends from Queens, you’ve known this for some time, but the Globe is officially skateable again. The fences are gone, and everything’s just like it always was. The ledges were sandblasted, but that is a small price to pay. The strip before the main extension, the extension itself, and the grate gap are the only things that have been re-waxed and broken in again. Hit the dollar store, buy a few candles, and take the trip out here before the cold gets too intense.

Want to see something crazy? Here’s a picture of Billy and the King of the Trill.

Speaking of Queens, and the word “trill,” the Flipmode franchise affiliated Tumblr, Hella Trill is back in full swing with regular updates. Skateboarding clips with some damn Wes Montgomery on the soundtrack, that’s something you can’t knock. (P.S. Wes Montgomery was as trill as someone could ever get.)

All of the people involved with this website collectively see Danny Weiss on a skateboard maybe twice a year. We have even taken steps to disown him, and prevent him from sucking up any more of the roster’s precious cap space. Lets put it like this: Take everyone you know who skateboards, think of every excuse they have ever given to you for not wanting to go skateboarding, combine them, and you will STILL not even be near the amount of excuses Danny Weiss has given all of us for bitching out of a session. Yet, somehow, someway, he decides to leave his house, and go skating with some European dudes, while avoiding all of those who have put up with all of his nonsense these past ten years. The guy is the true definition of a bum. I miss the Weiss that was set on telling the world that 50 Cent was the future.

While the tricks on the block of ice have received the most publicity after the release of Lakai’s new Nick Jensen commercial, that backside powerslide, no push thing between the two street gaps is the skateboard line nuance of the year.

Here’s a quick homie video via the Jaundice crew of some footage from this past summer and fall. Set to Cameron’s re-working of G. Dep’s classic title track anthem.

Open Skateboards’ Union Update Video – Volume 1.

Both of the the past two video links feature footage of the community pool park on Houston and Pitt Street, which has always been an insane bust anytime you set in there with a skateboard. And that amounts to visual evidence that people have been known to get lucky with some time there.

This has been on every other website, but check out this Keenan Milton video part mash-up if you already haven’t. Whoever edited it most likely went through some painstaking hours of finding applicable skate trick sounds to fill in for the stripped soundtracks.

Recently, while Googling “quartersnacks” in order to find something from several years ago, I stumbled on an old Skate Perception thread denouncing the audacity of this site for re-editing Mind Field last year. While there were very few advocates of the re-edit there, there were two responses that are absolutely brilliant and heartwarming.
