Usually, I start these things some time around the 20th or 21st of December and see how I like them over the next couple of days before Christmas. This time around, I started about 2 hours before midnight on Christmas. So, a lot of hours in FCP, a few dozen cross dissolves, and three or four coffees later, this is what I came up with.

Its a typical QS December 25th / End of the year mood piece with pianos and shit. Handycams, flip cams and some three-chips here and there. Dusty and dirty lenses and bad filming on my part included of course.

You know the drill — part one is the homies, part two is the roster. It is the fifth year anniversary of QS Christmas clips and I think next year is bound for a full-scale Weiss comeback to his former 2005 glory. Hopefully they re-model Lincoln Center with something that he can kickflip nose manual this time next year.

A bunch of mid-summer bullshit that is most likely going to make you upset because Mike Mo threw off your standards for skateboarding, and made you jaded to anything that does not involve flip-outs. Now with 95% more explosives.

If you need an explanation for that photo this does it more than justice. If you needed more affirmation for the fact that we still skate, here it is — the longest montage in Quarter Snacks history. Mostly filmed throughout the course of one month. Productivity is as simple as avoiding Downtown Manhattan, which is difficult to do, but rewarding in the end. So yeah, begin all your hating and “Wherez dat sp0t lolz?” comments, because…
