Start your day off right.

The 2003 magazine is now available. It includes a Quartersnacks feature with Zered Basset about the Vicious Cycle house, which was blocks from Ground Zero in the years after 9/11, and what it was like living/skating down there. We also released a hat with 2003, based on the QS Block Party tee from earlier this year. You can buy the two as a bundle, or individually ;) [Related: The skate feature from 1991.]

The Alltimers Jenkem mix by DJ Shrimp C is now live. Run your bands up.

“Yeet” is the new mini vid from Blue Couch. Features a pretty wide swath of spots around the city, a ton of night footage, and some #very #interesting line choreography at the Crackhead Park on 27th and 2nd Avenue. Also the back tail fakie on the fat flatrail on Water Street was really chill. Generic skate house song idk.

Are backside 360s where both feet kinda leave the board the #new #thing?

The Rios Crew went to Belgrade. I think I got anxiety watching it because of the song and the night footage where you can barely see anything else.

The Bunt has a new pod with Canadian legend, Russ Milligan. This part is still perfect.

Well, this plaza certainly looks fucking insane.

Andrew Wilson, Max Palmer, Mango and Aaron Herrington went on a Korea trip with Carhartt W.I.P., and reminded me to re-watch this old clip Conor Prunty made of Max Palmer’s first time in Korea [with John Choi] :)

Boil the Ocean on the Brian Anderson Vice Sports documentary and non-snitching sentiments being embedded within the skateboard industry. Actually had no idea Wes put Smolik on blast like that either, but shout out to 1998. What a cool year.

Everyone of a certain age holds a special place for Scott Kane in their hearts because of his Bootleg 3000 part. The “Free Lunch” series caught up with him to hear some stories from the Bootleg days :) “Man, you got that flick.”

Someone made a three-song/five-minute Kevin Bradley remix video.

2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Leo Gutman crashes a quinceañera on a boat and skates Chelsea park with a disposable camera for Vice’s “First Person Shooter” series.

Aaron Herrington recreated Anthony Pappalardo’s needle-thread ollie at Blubba.

Josh Davis did a mini profile on Thrasher and Phelps for Hypebeast. I love Rihanna.

“Street Urchins 9” is a new iPhone clip from the summer full of streetside psychos.

The QS webstore is now stocked with spring merch. Available in U.S. shops now. Japan, Europe & Canada this week. Please give us this week to catch up on the intial rush of orders e.g. don’t send a “where’s my stuff?” e-mail on Tuesday morning. Thank you everyone for your support in helping us continue to do what we do ♥

The new Helas mixtape makes me want to sell everything I own and move to Europe. Also kinda reminds me of the #fun days of catching Euro vids like TDGAFAU and issues of Puzzle stateside and fantasizing about a perfect world of marble living an ocean away. Not a ton of Lucas footage, minus a few lines and um…THIS.

New iPhone clip from Genny featuring “Don’t Mind” and a repaved Allen Street.

“Low-key we’re already rappers.” An interview with Na-kel Smith and Tyshawn Jones.

After a bondo job, this spot has been going hard in the spring Insta clip cycle.

Bobshirt has a new 20-minute video interview with Gino, where he nerds out on gear, old videos, midtown Manhattan spots (Breezy Ledges was his favorite?!), etc.

This “New Rules” montage out of Baltimore that got posted on Thrasher this weekend has been getting a lot of talk lately. A lot of its more insane tricks are in D.C. (full yell-at-screen mode at the nose manual nollie flip and knobbed Gold Rail tricks), but it’s great to see an underrated scene like Baltimore get some burn.

Behind the scenes of a one-up with Charles Rivard Ph.D.

Cell Jawn #25 via Mitch from Philly (yo everyone please watch your friends’ backs when skating the triangle on 9th Street…) + Philly trip clip via Max Hull that feels post-Love even though its pre-post-Love n shit.

Early edit of Derm’s “Welcome to Politic” part from last year #jersey #jersey #jersey

Here’s a Guardian article about Palace, where you learn that many of the beloved product descriptions on their webstore are Food Network inspired.

Fun lil’ VHS-flavored clip from some Long Island homies.

Quick feature from skateboarder turned New York firefighter, Mike Hernandez, who you might remember from old issues of Strength, Slap, etc. [Warning: bikes.]

Shout out to everyone who contributed to the Addias Ababa skatepark fund that was linked on here a few months ago. They were able to build the first skatepark in Ethiopia with the $35k that was raised.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The Drakes would eventually lose this game, but Kyle Lowry’s timing with this Hail Mary was unbelievable. Despite having zero emotional stake in either, sorta praying for a Heat-Cavs E.C.F. for the theater.

You Deserve It — The Alltimers Remix

alltimers remix headline

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.

Still in Miami — Titos at Ticos, New One From Alltimers

Just as there’s a Summer Trip to New York season, there’s an equally coverage-heavy Winter Escape From New York season. Despite Puerto Rico potentially surpassing Miami as the east coast’s premier winter getaway these past few years, the home of Khaled Mohamed Khaled (also known as DJ Khaled) still maintains an inescapable draw, i.e. are you *in* Miami or are you *still in* Miami?

The latest from Alltimers features early 2016 MVP frontrunner and Space Heater closer, Andrew Wilson, along with honorary 2004 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Torey Goodall (QS nor its un-coveted Skater of the Year distinction existed in 2004, hence the “honorary”), and Squad Massage now Duluth alumni Ben Blundell, Dustin Henry, and Charles Rivard. Gotta hand it to any video that ends with a switch noseslide, yaknow?

It’s Pickle Time — The New Alltimers Video

its pickle time

With a conceptual video that pre-dated skateboarding’s current draw to trash by a year and a co-sign from the *the god Marissa Tomei* now far behind them, the Alltimers thinktank presents their latest: “It’s Pickle Time.”

Features an opening shared part from a trio of Canadian hearthrobs / Squad Massage alumni — artist and psychoanalyst extraordinaire, Charles Rivard + the sweet-faced Dustin Henry + legendary Canadian battle rap prodigy, Ben Blundell. And it ends with none other than Andrew Wilson, who’s shattered the record for most consecutive QS headliner image appearances (previous record was 1), and had one hell of a year.

Also: Travis Porter is a national treasure.

The Alltimers webstore just re-opened with holiday goods that would make great gifts for your loved ones …yes that includes the *BEST* skateboard to ever exist.
