Rough Idea: Alltimers New York B-Sides

Happy belated back-to-back birthdays to Etienne “Who Is That Child That’s Always On Your Instagram” Gagne and Dana “Forbidden 14” Ericson — who, coincidentally — have the highest volume of B-sides filmed in New York from the Alltimers No Idea video. Figured this would be as good of a time as any to post another installment of these. Features a few Philly clips but same difference yaknow.

Filmed by Daniel Wheatley, Emilio Cuilan and Corey McNeill. Best viewed while desperately hoping that there are zero acoustic guitars on Slime Language.

When You’re Bad, You’re Bad

Happy birthday Ben Blundell! Photo via that social media platform that people stopped using in favor of Instagram being worse at doing the same exact things. No idea who took the photo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The creators behind the first ever “Summer Trip to New York” montage to utilize 6ix9ine were nice enough to release it alongside the clip’s raw files for those not bold enough to find out what a full 6ix9ine song actually sounds like.

“Either you’re down or you’re not. New Orleans is insanely small, and not only am I the shop owner, but I skate, so at the end of the day at 7, I’m like on the corner with all boys drinking beer. I don’t want to be like, “uh no you’re not on, you are on.” It’s just dumb, so with me it’s just like man the whole city’s on.” Skate Jawn has a new interview with QS office favorite, Philly Santosuosso. (Related.)

Boil the Ocean’s Quasi Mother review is here to remind you that Josh Wilson is all-too-often forgotten in the Skateboarding’s Greatest Hair™ conversation. That reminds me to go pop a biotin right now…

You’ve no doubt caught it, but Adidas has a new video of the 50-year-old Mark Gonzales and the twenty-year-old Tyshawn Jones skating around lower Manhattan together. The “this is a state trooper building” bit made me laugh hehe.

Spencer Hamilton got two bangers at Big Screen in his new part on Thrasher.

…and Thrasher has the raw files of T-Funk’s polejam boardslide down the Columbus Park rail. (Half the park is still fenced off btw.)

Imagine driving from Austin to New York so that you could skate the triangle manual pad up the block from L.E.S. These dudes look like they drove from Austin to New York so they could skate the triangle manual pad up the block from L.E.S.

Paul Young uploaded a circa 2015 Nick Ferro footy tape, from the age before he began his current quest of mastering the switch hardflip.

Leo season begins today, but apparently so did Jinx season.

TWS has Andrew Singh’s part from the Westchester-based PFP5 video.

The Bunt is back and their first episode of the new season is with the last non #big #rail #guy to get S.O.T.Y., Wes Kremer.

Here is a minute of Mother extras and B-sides. Hope for more one day :)

Rough Idea Vol. 2 — Alltimers in Miami B-Sides

Below is another round of B-sides from the filming of Alltimers’ No Idea video, centered around Miami’s resurgence as a premier sunny getaway for the east coast’s winter months. (You know damn well those JFK ➙ SJU tickets started to outnumber the JFK ➙ MIA ones over the past few years.)

Filmed around some city classics, and some less-recognizable bits, the video features pretty much everyone with any footage in No Idea, except the two Boston guys (presumably because boardslides on ledges are a Florida requirement? Idk.)

Filmed by Corey McNeill.

Rough Idea — Alltimers in Los Angeles B-Sides

What’s going on, ET?
Chilling, waking up. About to go to bed soon.

And so went the best opening answer to an interview question of 2018.

Over the course of filming No Idea, the Alltimers boys logged some hours at Login Lava spots out west to escape what has scarred many as one of our worst winters in years. Below are all the outtakes from L.A. that didn’t make the final cut, via everyone. Filmed by Daniel Wheatley and Corey McNeill.

They also have a bunch of new stuff on their webstore today if you’re trying to garm up for your summer getaway, and are still sad about how you missed out on QS shorts ;)

‘No Idea’ — The Full-Length Alltimers Video, is now live

It was mid-July 2017, hot out, and we were in an air conditioned bar enjoying some adult beverages. Ben Blundell walked in with some fire Celine glasses at 11 P.M., and a conversation that centered around how the skeleton of the inaugural Alltimers full-length was taking form, drifted towards another fashionable subject: fashion itself.

Even a year removed from MadeinTYO’s sleeper hit, we began to talk about Gucci polo shirts. Then, an offer was made. E.T. had to film a full-length video part, and in return, his sponsors would purchase him a Gucci polo as a reward.

If you want to be technical about it, Torey did in fact make him promise that it would be “the greatest skate video part of all-time.”

But what IS “time?” Recent research has indicated that time — not money — is the 21st century’s greatest commodity. Are you really going to waste it thinking about all the other video parts that came before it? Is E.T’s part in the Alltimers video better than Guy in Mouse? Is it better than Jason Byoun in Life is Goodie?

You’re really going to spend the world’s most precious commodity on those fickle questions? No, hopefully, you’re not an idiot.

Alltimers’ first full-length features full parts from Etienne “Gucci Polo” Gagne, Dustin “Skater You Would Be Most OK With Your Daughter Dating” Henry, and a shared part from Tyler Warren and Ben Blundell.

Appearances from Adrian Vega, Will Marshall, Dan Ericson, Brian Delaney, Zered Bassett, Conor Prunty, Adam Zhu, and Charles Rivard.
