Via Requiem for A Screen, duh ♥

Phew, The Bunt is back. Season four, episode one with Elijah Berle.

Really heavy new edition of LurkNYC’s “Mean Streets” series went live this past weekend. The 5050 at Chase, Howard Street ollie and Columbia ollie were all insane. Is that Water Street ender an NBD? Wow.

Jason Byoun is like an O.G. nu-age Brooklyn Banks head.

This past weekend, Brian Wenning did his first switch back nosegrind pop-out since Photosynthesis, and it looked fab. Sorry to link two single tricks two links in a row :)

There’s an official trailer out for Pat O’Dell’s feature documentary about Big Brother.

Is a “VX Montage” in an HD video like when they throw a random experimental song in the middle of a rap album? And holy shit, that 360 flip

A couple more parts from Ricardo Napoli’s Making It Happen video are up over on TWS: A non-VX montage featuring Akira and a bunch of dudes, Taylor Clark + Jarrod Brandreth’s shared part, and Bruno Aguero + Lindolfo Oliveira’s shared part. Also, Transworld, please do something about your video player. Tried to rewind a trick and had to watch a Pennzoil commercial mid-video…

Ripped Laces on the recent resurgence of yellow gear in skateboarding.

“Alas, as ledge skating gained supremacy and skateable blocks began trading at a premium due to police pressure and general scarcity, peg damage and huffy attitudes came to divide the camps, such that by the time the handrail age set in, extreme bike riders became punchlines.” Dunno about the “punchline” part, as we’ve linked a BMX video or two on here before and like ummm, ROB CAMPBELL, but Boil the Ocean considers the relationship between bikes and skateboards, circa 2017. We Citibiked up to Lenox from Soho yesterday, and it was pretty beast ;)

An extensive interview with Ian from Jenkem.

Luis Tolentino was actually Spiderman all along.

Spot Updates — 1) Defeated lol on them re-paving every part of this spot except where we needed them to re-pave. At least Avenue A getting re-paved is the biggest thing to happen to New York skateboarding since children discovered Indoor Ten. 2) Spot was a two second bust and for pros, but those rails parallel to the narrow banks on 33rd Street are mad high now. 21. 21. 21.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: So, Thunder in 8, right?! With the Russ adoration running high on here this past season, let’s take a second to remind ourselves of J.R. Smith’s brilliance — sorry, meant NBA Champion™ J.R. Smith’s brilliance. [Also remembered how annoying it is that we now have to wait until the end of June to find out who MVP, 6MOTY, etc. is now.]

Quote of the Week: “Harden is like the guy at the spot who knows how to land all tricks, but he’s wearing fat Globes and skinny pants.” — Francesco Pini

Pad Dowd’s Favorite Skater™.

Global warming is a lie.

Handycam on the Road: Volume 1. A comprehensive display of what a few hundred miles south on I-95 and a lack of effort on behalf of a non-existent three-chip camera looks like. I’d imagine it is at least twenty-five degrees warmer down there right now.

Ted Barrow interviews Alex Corporan about the 80s, the 90s, and the Banks.

Who would have thought that some half-Irish/half-Puerto Rican degenerate trading you a Hennessy shirt from a Mobb Deep video for an unlimited supply of beer on Thursday nights would eventually result in tosilitis.

This video demonstrates more heart than anything you have ever tried on a skateboard. And it reminds me that more cars need to be incorporated in lines when you’re filming in SoHo nowadays. Ever since Hamilton Harris did a car line at Astor, the act has become something of a lost art, and its really a shame. Especially when BMX riders do it so well.

And now, the most important thing to ever be posted on the Quarter Snacks homepage…

A ROB CAMPBELL INTERVIEW

As much as I have had inquiries put into the prospect of interviewing Rob or uncovering some of his hidden footage from the past several years, I have constantly been told that, “He’s not feeling the internet.” I was not aware that print was still a viable method of exposure anymore, but as long as he holds that contention of the digital-age, this brief interview is the best thing we have.
