Should be caught up with shipping web orders from last week by the end of today. Thanks to everyone for their support. If you don’t receive a tracking number to the e-mail you ordered with by tomorrow, feel free to hit us up. In the meantime, there’s still a bit of stuff left in the webstore, and we have updated our stockists page.

Stuff you’ve already seen: Bronze and Zoo York’s “Amber Alert” Barcelona video, featuring the fakie flip above (from the spot everyone got kicked out of on that trip.) Thrasher also posted the article and photos from the trip online.

Village Psychic made an infographic to commemorate ten years of B.A.T.B.

Any video featuring youths skating midtown gets a post: Bot Video from Ewan Creed.

Volume 22 of LurkNYC’s “New York Times” outtakes series features a long lens angle of that psychotic 5050 across the scaffolding at Chase from their last video.

Have a hard time telling Roman and Marek apart sometimes, but the Primitive trip to D.C. and New York clip is pretty bomb, and a nice palette cleanser when you need a break from the “relatable” skating we post on here :)

The Bunt’s latest episode is with Aaron Herrington (shout out to all of our scooter rider QS readers and to Aaron Szott), and Jenkem’s latest episode of their “Hanging Out” series is with…Aaron Herrington.

Everyone’s always surprised to remember that Keith Denley still rides for Hopps, but nobody is surprised that Mark Del Negro now rides for Hopps. Jahmal cameo ♥

Ever since the Bobshirt thing (fave one yet), I’ll watch/read any Reda interview. This new(ish) one with a CUNY college show is nice to throw on in the background.

Some Jersey skating B-sides from Tommy Koehne.

Place has a light interview with Lucas.

“When you feel overwhelmed, walk alone through the woods and forget your name, your title, your education and view yourself for what you really are — another mammal wondering why it is here but appreciating the fact that your civilization has not as yet been evaporated by a supernova.” — Got sidetracked reading a 2012 MIT commencement speech while doing this post ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ You can pretty much skip the first half because you didn’t go to MIT, but the rest is a nice #mondaymotivation #riseandgrind #letsgetit #workflow moment.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: John Wall’s game winner was sick, and tonight is the most excited the Sports Desk has been for a game all post-season, but 87-year-old Manu Ginobli’s block on Harden takes it. He also dunked in the game yesterday and he’s 93 years old. It’d be nice if the Kawai thing isn’t serious :(

Quote of the Week:

Love how half the skateboard internet re-posted this part like it was new, but yeah, it deserved a lot more burn when it first dropped. Watch Bleach in full here, and should someone upload a single of Mark’s Sable part?

None of us ever had to talk about each other’s bowel movements so much. Then we went to Mexico City for a week.

“Don’t drink the water!” is what they say — disregarding the fact that it’s impossible to avoid every little thing that has ever come in contact with the city’s tap. Whether it’s the lettuce in a sandwich or the ice in a slutty drink, some percentage of everything is tainted. Nobody escaped unscathed. We went from claiming 100 tacos in seven days, to fifty tacos, to eating Domino’s for lunch halfway thru the week because, like, how scary can bread and cheese be?

Between searching for public bathrooms, and after realizing a slight culture barrier between us and the people showing us around (they took us to Baker spots because we had a couple people paid to skateboard with us, and based on the videos we were watching, being good at skateboarding in Mexico means you can tailslide a fifty-stair round rail), this is how the week went. A true testament to the beauty of Mexico City is that despite our unanimous gastro-intestinal ailments, everyone still had an amazing time. And no, nobody gave a fuck about that stupid wall.

Thanks to everyone who showed us around, and to the cops that accepted our like ~$25 bribe (oddly enough, you can’t drink in public) ♥ Also, I’m ok with not hearing Kodak Black for a couple months.

Features Etienne Gagne, Zach Baker, Zered Bassett, Emilio Cuilan, Adrian Vega and Will Marshall.

All the cool garms you see in this clip can be purchased on the Alltimers site btw.

I Quit My Job in #myalltimers

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.
