Still in Miami

Thanks to everyone who grabbed something from the webstore this past week. We’re just getting caught up with orders now, so please hold any “Where’s my stuff”-emails until at least the middle of the week. Still some sizes in hoodys, shorts and jerseys left, plus all sizes of the tees except the Vacation one :)

HD video blog #10 via Johnny Wilson. Springtime is nice.

Part two of the Peter Smolik and Brandon Turner Weekend Buzz is now live. He hates food pics. “Motherfucker, do I look like Slimer to you?”

Sort of on that same note, can’t recall an interview that really elaborated on just how much money the average “A-list” pro skateboarder made in the early-2000s as Jenkem’s new one with Kenny Getz re: “the CKY era.”

Someone on Slap scanned the entire Olson TWS cover interview in a readable resolution. All New York photos. He does darkslides now.

Wenning was stressed out filming for Photosynthesis ten days before deadline.

After numerous false starts at digitizing their archive, Know Skate and TWS announced that every 411VM segment will be available via an app by the end of this year. (ICYMI: Somewhat relevant old QS post.)

Haven’t seen much from this dude as of late, but glad he’s still putting out solid parts: New one from Austin Kanfoush. Boardslide S.F. 3-up-3-down is super chill.

Cool five-minute montage from the NJ Skateshop squad.

NY Skateboarding has a bit more info on the skatepark being built in place of the Fat Kid Spot. And yes, they should keep the name “Fat Kid Spot” for it, with the green Parks Department leaf under the name and all. Don’t forget that there’s also supposed to be a new park built in Harlem for the summer, too. (Even though #lenox4ever.)

SMLTalk on the music supervision of THPS, the soundtrack of your youth.

Live has a web premiere of “Grapevine,” a ten-minute, largely New York-based video with quick VX/night footage-heavy #Japanese ‘n #French #vibez.

This was a cool read. These “20 Years of Girl / Chocolate” interviews tend to all go down similar lines of questioning, but it feels like there aren’t a ton of Jeron Wilson interviews out there, so…

The first-ever Vans video, Propeller, is premiering in New York on May 1st, at 10 P.M., right by Columbus Circle on 62nd and Broadway.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Can’t imagine J.R. Smith being a person younger NBA players should be taking much advice from, unless he’s relaying proper post-4 A.M. club etiquette… Get well soon, Chris Copeland. Also on the topic of former Knicks, glad to see Galinari shining post-injury.

snow

Sick of this snow, man.

NJ Skateshop has a restock of QS beanies. Not many left in the web store, btw.

Muckmouth on the increasingly unfashionable dilemma of switch mongo. Is this a dilemma for people born before 1990? Or is the fact that Kalis, Stevie, Koston, Welsh, Gino and Carroll all push switch mongo enough to make us not think about it?

There’s a sick montage from Pittsburgh’s One Up Skateshop Crew up over on the Thrasher site. Features a mini section from Austin Kanfoush at the end.

Platinum Seagulls examines the frequent use of Mobb Deep’s The Infamous for #musicsupervision in early issues of 411. (Oh, speaking of 411…coming soon.)

Gabriel Rodriguez talks about his five favorite board graphics with Memory Screened, which lets you in on some of the inner-workings behind 101 and Chocolate.

Some Russians uploaded Underworld Element’s Skypager video in full to YouTube.

Eight-minute New York and S.F. log file and some throwaway footage from PFP3.

A seldom seen, artsy shared part from Quim Cardona and Paulo Diaz that appeared in S-One’s 4 Cities video. Insole companies apparently made videos ~15 years ago.

Freddy!!!

Stan Karbine’s part in $14 the Hard Way is awesome.

Kalis talks J. Kwon, Love comparisons, etc. with King Shit. Honestly, that place looks like utter hell to skate on a Sunday.

Non skate-related link alert! You may remember the only episode of MTV Cribs that mattered from 2001…Well, MTV paid a visit back to Redman’s Staten Island castle in 2014 to see if his cousin is still sleeping on the floor, and to check on the status of his dollar box. Also, he has a Dynex…

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Despite what he may say, Lance Stephenson looks sorta pissed he didn’t make the All-Star team.

New Austin Kanfoush Part in the One Up Promo

February 20th, 2012 | 9:00 am | Daily News | 9 Comments

This past Friday, way out in Pittsburgh, One Up Skateshop premiered their 2012 promo. It’s intended to be a teaser for their full-length video, which is coming out in February 2013 for the shop’s ten-year anniversary. Similar to how Rich Forever is a teaser for God Forgives, I Don’t, except Pittsburgh skateboarding is way sicker than Rick Ross. Most of us don’t live in Pittsburgh, so the crew at One Up was down to share Austin Kanfoush’s part with everyone. Oddly, there are less football jerseys this time around. Includes guest tricks from Kyle Nicholson, Ryan Harris, Jake Johnson, and David Cole.

You can purchase the full promo video on DVD over at OneUpPGH.com for $10 + shipping. The DVD also includes Fuck Yinz Volume 1, Volume 2, and Yinz M.I.A. (Fuck Yinz 2 video review here.) Pittsburgh legitimately has some of the best skaters out right now, regardless of whether or not the internet at large, magazines, etc. choose to acknowledge that. The DVD is definitely worth your $10. Austin’s part embedded below.

Follow FuckYinz.tumblr.com for updates leading up to the full-length.

Weekend Viewing: Austin Kanfoush in Fuck Yinz Vol. 2

January 6th, 2012 | 10:03 am | Daily News | 6 Comments

NFL playoffs begin tomorrow, and the weather was nice enough to warm up just in time for the weekend. In honor of those two facts, here is Austin Kanfoush’s part from Fuck Yinz Volume 2, which the homies over at One Up Skateshop were kind enough to let us throw online to share with everyone. It definitely has more football Steelers jerseys than any other part in the history of skateboarding, so it should get you psyched for either hitting the streets this weekend to enjoy the tolerable weather, or getting drunk by 5 P.M. while watching football. The part is also edited to what eighty-percent of the Quartersnacks office would consider their favorite song of all time. All those Juicy J solo mixtapes and duets with Wiz Khalifa are cute and all, but they don’t take away from us having gone over six years without a legitimate Three 6 Mafia album (Last 2 Walk was garbage, obviously.)

With that being said, Quartersnacks is still a one-sport, basketball-only sort of place, and we probably won’t mention the NFL for another few years, unless Roctakon starts a column or something. Good luck to your team if you’re into it. Football is cool because L.A. doesn’t have a team though.

There’s more footage, photos, etc. from the One Up crew over at FuckYinz.Tumblr.com.

Video Review: Fuck Yinz – Volume 2

October 28th, 2011 | 9:41 am | Features & Interviews | 9 Comments

A few weeks back, the crew at One Up Skateshop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania sent over Fuck Yinz Volume 2, their 30-minute promo video from earlier this year. The DVD-R came wrapped in a size small digi-camo tank top with their logo on it. The G-Man, who once received a medium tee from Vinny Raffa only to respond with “You don’t have a 2X?” lamented it was not a few sizes larger.

One Up is the only skate shop in Pittsburgh, and it is run by a friendly, tight knit crew, that has always been accommodating with sharing spots and skating around with us whenever we would make the six-hour drive out there. It’s the sort of shop that every city should have. Their video has parts from several names that have began receiving more coverage in recent history (Kyle Nicholson, Zach Funk, Austin Kanfoush, Nick Panza), plus a whole bunch of lesser-known dudes who still shred just as hard (Dan Peindl, Grem Trails, Rob Dumas, Bill Cunningham, Justin Funk, and others.)
