Dustin Henry wraps up his 2016 bid as “Skateboarder You Would Be Most Comfortable With Your Daughter Dating” with a starring role in “#myalltimers” — edging ever close to 2016’s leading frontrunner, Louie Lopez. It’s been a year full of upsets, and given Dustin’s steadfast commitment refusing to use swear words, not listening to Chief Keef, and a “Part of the Year” contender in the Antisocial vid, maybe he pulls away with the S.Y.W.B.M.C.W.Y.D.D. win this year.

The rest of the latest Alltimers video acts as an intro for Adrian Vega, Tyler Warren, Will Marshall and E.T. the Extraterrestrial + a visual space for Adam Zhu to do the ollie over the bumps at Alligator Ledge that everyone always claimed.

Who would you be most OK with your daughter dating?

New Flipmode / Bronze Video: ’56k’

July 23rd, 2012 | 2:50 pm | Video & Remixes | 29 Comments

In recent times, many have opted to fetishize VHS. The new Flipmode video went another route, and mined the 90s for every other piece of technological nostalgia, devising a Amazon Women on the Moon-esque concoction of early-internet imagery, late night TV channel guides, Jordan-era NBA clips, Baywatch?, and uh, mixtape drops. 56k loves the 90s, but is less fond of the 2000s. The only nod to the previous decade is a tasteful reutilization of perhaps the only great song to ever be in an EST video. And if you were to base a drinking game around taking a shot every time someone skates a spot on the island of Manhattan in this video, you’d end up taking around ten shots. Features Phil Rodriguez, Billy McFeely, Adrian Vega, Matt Daniels, Kevin Tierney, Shawn Powers, Joseph Delgado, Rob Gonyon, and guest tricks from others. Whether or not Bronze is an actual “company” has yet to be determined.

You can buy 56k on DVD, along with the past three Flipmode videos (Trife, Sognar, and Caviar) included on the same disc. $10 + $2 shipping, so it’s stupid not to.

Best outfit of the video goes to Phil Rodriguez: Camo pants and a tie-dye crewneck sweatshirt.

On a 24-Hour, Quarter Snack Diet

It seems like everybody with an iPhone or an extraneous TD Bank account yielding a free Flip Cam has a video blog nowadays. And while it’s fairly clear that nobody involved with Quarter Snacks is a technology nut (the clips are filmed with a camera that has been more or less out of general use by skateboarders since 2005, so you can draw your own conclusions, plus I was running Final Cut 3 up until a few weeks ago), it is safe to say that the advent of the recently announced savior of the human race (“Oh there’s a new app that stops the BP oil spill”), will only increase the ease with which video updates make their way to the internet. Not that we have ever pledged the infamous “if you’re don’t own an Apple, you’re better off with a pen and a legal pad” philosophy that seems to exist in certain circles, or the Switch Mike equivalent, “any phone that isn’t an iPhone is useless” sort of thinking, but that phone is absolutely insane. If it’s as good in low-light settings as it claims to be (it won’t), there will be a handycam snacks clip every week. I mean, there’s a skateboarder in the picture for it, so clearly, the thing is made for filming skateboarding. Let’s just hope that the 5G has a screenshot of the Black Filmer blog in the ad campaign for it.

Anyway, there’s a new flip cam footage clip up. Filmed by Josh Velez, featuring all the staples of flip cam and cell phone clips: TF footage, 12th & A footage, McCarren Park footage, double angles, poorly lit spots, Billy Dee Williams spewing racial epithets about Italians, and several other pleasant surprises.

Features Matthew Mooney, Ty Lyons, Josh Velez, Brian Delatore, Curtis Rapp, Sweet Waste, Keith Denley, Black Dave, (Andre Paige BGPs), Miles Marquez, Kevin Tierney, Adrian Vega, Andrei Kirilenko, Zerred Basset, Ritch, Alex Mosley, and Ben Nazario.

In addition to that, today marks THE MUSIC EVENT OF THE CENTURY or something like that (at least if you let “leading industry experts” tell it), and it taught us that Drake somehow has male fans. Or, male fans that aren’t Switch Mike. So we had to include something to “fix” one of his songs, since you know, they all sound better when they’re not his songs. Buy Pastor Troy’s album instead.

Anyways, the clip and download link is embedded after the jump.

You can still hop that joint?

Stereo sucks, but they posted some footage of Adrian Vega that is more than worth your time. Perhaps the only redeeming factor of the Union Square demise that occurred last year is the (hopefully) impending trend of propping up tree grates Temple University style over the seemingly useless metal posts scattered about the perimeter of the the park. [*I’m actually not 100% sure that is Union but it looks like it.]

I know people around here tend to get offended whenever there’s a God forbid, non-skateboarding related post, but if you are a fan of Switch Michael Strobert’s work on the Mind Field Re-Edit, you should probably give this a quick watch. If you hate it, oh well.

The previously discussed lack of a rail over the six at FedEX is no longer.

Good luck with this one.

I completely forgot that this was even put online, but watch Can’t Ban the Snackman 2 if you haven’t seen it already.

Merry Christmas

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.

Features: Adrian Vega, some Boston dudes, German Nieves, Allen Siegler, Ian from Union, Dennis Feliciano, Keith Denley, Jersey Dave, the Gothic Raver, Alex, Shawn Powers, Staten Island Adrian, Tohmi Shiroyama, Ty Lyons, Aaron Szott, Danny Weiss blowing it as usual, Isak Buan, Francesco Pini, Taji Ameen, Kevin Teirney, Ian Reid, Pad Dowd, Galen Dekemper, Miles Marquez, Thando Beschta, Benjamin Nazario, Matthew Mooney, Vladimir Kirilenko, DJ Roctakon.

Thanks to everyone who contributed footage: Justin White, Jimmy Marketti, David Spodofora, Dennis Feliciano, JP Blair, Anthony Beckner, Alex Rialdi, Pad Dowd, Joe Cups.
