Season starts this week :) Daylight-saving time ends next week :(

1) You can buy copies of Johnny Wilson’s new video, Paych, for $10 here. Labor is supposed to be getting copies this week. The DVD also includes Beef Patty. 2) Living up to the “Most Productive Crew” trademark, those dudes already have another video on the way. 3) It’s mad sad that the VX is dead yo.

Amazing: Drunk dude calls cops on skateboarders, ends up getting arrested himself.

The bro Lil’ Lui has a video check out on the TWS site. Features footage of the 29th Street ollie from last week’s Monday headliner image.

Can’t remember the last time a part ended with a switch front shuv. What a great trick.

Not only are clubs likely seeing higher revenues on Tuesdays, skate videos are also getting made to commemorate 2014’s most on-trend day of the week.

SMLTalk listi-cized their five favorite friends sections. A notable snub / personal favorite is the one at the end of Mixtape, which pretty much nails the vibe you want any friends montage to have, not to mention features maybe the second best 360 flip ever done. Also, the Blind section from Virtual Reality belongs there off G.P. Mariano’s trick is incredible no matter what decade you’re talking about.

New Juicy Elbows clip up on YouTube. The ender is wild.

The 181st Street Park got a fresh paint job for its first birthday:

Rick Howard is on magazine covers again.

Gino + Dill + Kool G Rap + Manolo remix to commemorate new partnerships.

Backing the #musicsupervision in the new Matt Miller part.

Skating for Polar seems like it requires more heavy lifting than any other sponsorship.

Hjalte v.s. Aaron Herrington v.s. Joseph Delgado v.s. Brian Clarke in S-K-8.

Happy Halloween from Quan and Thug.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Bogut figured out how to throw mini Kevin Love passes now?

Quote of the Week:

Rest in Peace Matt Reason. One of the main reasons people use the phrase “east coast” as an adjective to describe skateboarding.

Beef Patty is Now Online

For the second week in a row, we are going to postpone Monday Links until Tuesday in order to feature an excellent New York-based skateboard video.

Johnny Wilson’s new video, Beef Patty, is now live on Vimeo. It’s from the same crew behind Video and Space Heater, and somehow on a whole level better than those past videos, which were both quite good themselves. All three came out in the past year-and-a-half, so how these dudes manage to get so much footage while avoiding familiar Manhattan trappings is pretty absurd (always nice to see a New York video without a single trick at the Courthouse Drop.) Add it to the rotation along with Solo Jazz, and pass the link on to any of your dumb friends who have ever given that “The skateparks are ruining skateboarding” speech.

New parts from Cyrus Bennett, Paul Tucci, Andrew Wilson, Loose Trucks Max, no apparent Corey Rubin sighting :( and appearances from a whole bunch of others. If you need an explanation as to how Loose Trucks Max got his name, please consult the close-up of the boardslide at the beginning of his part (15:30.)

You should also probably follow Johnny’s Vimeo account because he has a throwaway reel live on there every week or two.
