Watermelonism 3 is the latest from Alexander Mosley, the most esteemed traveller that many of us know. Filmed in Puerto Rico, Colombia and New York, and uploaded online just before he dips off to the southern hemisphere for an undetermined amount of time / however long the upcoming winter lasts. While more mainstream corners of the skate nerd world are gassed off the #rare #Gino #appearance in Boys of Summer, we’re over here reveling in any morsel of Ben Nazario or Paul Tucci footage.

Alex has a new striped edition of his boards and a new tee over on his site, Watermelonism.com, so you should go support the cause over there :)

Start of Summer / Memorial Day Weekend 2013 Montage

Not much of a “first weekend of summer,” but oh well…

After temporarily maxing out on ignorance with the Forrest Edwards re-edit, we took an example from the recent direction of Baker Boys music supervision. Filmed from January through maybe one day ago, hence substantial greenery increases between varying Columbus Circle clips. Be back on Tuesday. Have a good weekend.

Features Keith Denley AKA Chief Keith, Andre Page, Luis Tolentino, Ben Nazario, Galen Dekemper, Dave Cado, Matthew Perez, Kadeem Walters, Ryan Chin, Lui Elliot, Ritch Swain, Elijah Cole, Jonathan, Josh Velez, Brendan Carroll, Brian Clarke, Sweet Waste, Connor Champion, Tyler Tufty, and Thando Beschta.

Oh, last but not least: Free Amanda Bynes! She got arrested for throwing a bong out of a 36th story window in midtown. To think all of this could have been avoided if Drake simply complied and murdered her vagina.

Ain’t No Way Around It: End of Summer / Labor Day Weekend 2012 Video

August 31st, 2012 | 8:10 am | Video & Remixes | 7 Comments

Didn’t June start like four days ago? Hard to remember what even happened this past summer, short of the same conversation over and over about the new L.E.S Park (“There’s mad bikers,” “It’s good when it’s early,” “Nah, but it’s good at night,” “At least 12th & A is empty now,” etc.) There had to have been some other noteworthy summer developments, but we don’t remember them. Most of the songs that “defined” this summer sucked (2 Chainz had a good eight or ten month run, but it’s obviously over), so we went with two good ones from last summer.

Features Emilio Cuilan, Ty Lyons, Galen Dekemper, Tyler Tufty, Haffa, Alexander, Mosley, Sweet Waste, Conor Fay, Jahmal Williams, Jordan Trahan, Kadeem, Elijah Cole, Scott Schwartz (!!!), Brendan Carroll, Andre Page, Josh Velez and Ben Nazario. Contributing filmers: Andre Page, Emilio Cuilan, Goshi Goto, Josh Velez. Most of the filming is still horrendous, as usual.

Have a good holiday weekend.

Merry Christmas

The first QS Christmas clip with no Ziegfeld footage. 2011 had some sad moments.

Let’s start off by saying this clip, and probably every clip that will be posted on this website in the next fifty years, is not as good as the “Best of 2011” clip. Christmas clips are about capturing the spirit of the season, so our trademark music supervision has to restrain itself (last year’s rift between The Far East Movement and Coltrane was well-documented.) At least until Meek Mill or Future follow in Black Dave’s footsteps and release a Christmas album. 2011’s offering is a big shorter that past years’, but what it lacks in footage, is made up for by more sweatpants, camo pants, yellow track jackets, two (!) lines with just nosegrinds and 5-0s, sketchy landings, nollie tailslides, switch noseslides (both of those tricks are coming back big-time for 2012) than any other clip you may have seen this year. Usually, Roctakon is Quartersnacks’ best dressed (Galen in a 2XL UNLV baseball jersey over a 2XL turquoise Champion crewneck is a close second…), but everyone stepped up their gear in 2011.

Contrary to the mistake printed in the post for the teaser, this is actually our seventh annual Christmas clip, which is kind of crazy.

Features Alexander Mosley, Will Jones, Tyler Tufty, Emilio Cuilan, Andre Page, Matthew Mooney, Bill Pierce, Ben Nazario, Roctakon, Dustin, Kevin Tierney, Ty Lyons, Shawn Powers, Miles Marquez, Sweet Waste, Billy Mcfeely, Josh Velez, and Ritchard Swain.

Contributing Filmers: Goshi Goto & Rob Harris.

It’s nearly 4 A.M., and I have to be at the Garden for the Knicks’ season opener in less than seven hours, so it’s time for sleep. (Predictions for the first day of the NBA? Knicks have a 60% chance of winning if Pierce actually sits out / no chance if he plays, Miami over Dallas because Dirk spent the last six months partying, Lakers over Chicago because Kobe spent the last six months wanting to kill someone, and Oklahoma over Orlando because the Magic are going to be a soap opera this year.) If you have a blog/Tumblr/legitimate website/Facebook page, please re-post the clip if you enjoy it, it would mean a lot. Merry Christmas.

Fall Flip Cam / iPhone Wave

Andre Page with a highly expressive ollie at Washington Square Park. I wonder what song he had in the iPod for this one? Photo by Emilio Cuilan. Click image to enlarge.

Hopefully, you came up on a $65 Flip Cam last month, and have been stacking clips with it ever since. The following is a clip filmed with that very same device, and its slightly more ubiquitous cell phone counterpart, the iPhone. The clip features the first public documentation of Ty’s critically acclaimed “white person” Halloween costume. (“What are you supposed to be?” “White.”) Whether or not it surpasses Drake and garbage, the other two crowd favorites from Halloween 2011, is your call. Edited to one of the best posse songs in recent history. Sorry French, we didn’t have enough footage to include your verse.

Features Jake Johnson, Alexander Mosley, Lil’ Steven, Andre Page, Emilio Cuilan, Brendan, Luke Malaney, Ritch Swain, Brian Kelley, Ty Lyons, Sweet Waste, Will Carpio, Ben Nazario, Alex, Dario Phillips, Torey Goodall (yes, that footage is from before that spot was “occupied”), and Josh Velez. Filmed by Josh Velez.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. We’ll be back on Friday.
