Now see, this is what the holidays are all about. Three buddies sitting around, chewing gum.

The site has been having intermittent server issues and downtime over the past several days. Everything should be back to normal now.

Past QS Christmas Clips: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005

Frozen in Carbonite composed an interesting venn diagram for Pretty Sweet and Parental Advisory, the two marquee skate videos of the holiday season. Though “current rap, unironically” might belong in the middle, as “2Pac Back” was Pretty Sweet‘s only current rap song, and it was utilized in an appropriate way. Then again, it also has a caucasian Kid Cudi cover, so that might throw everything off…

In the spirit of list season, Boil the Ocean has begun to count down the top ten skate parts of 2012. Joseph Delgado’s 56k part took the tenth slot.

Speaking of which, the director behind “this year’s best-made video” put together a 56k-esque Bill Pierce part for Roger Skateboards.

Rob Harris is releasing a video entitled Dece Vid on January 20th with a full part of the most recent Yaje Popson footage and cameos from a bunch of others. Teaser here.

This new Skate Jawn montage may be the first skate clip with footage at Fulton Mall.

Rob Gonyon becoming irate with entitled New York bicyclists (seriously, that “DON’T YOU GUYS KNOW THIS IS A *BIKE* LANE?!?!”-contingent of society is the worst) and doing chill street lines.

Mark Suciu and friends at Lenox Ledges and other less-interesting destinations in New York. The switch powerslide at the Bronx Courthouse after the back 180 is impressive considering how tight that landing space is. Dude’s good.

Throwback: A 12-year-old Slicky Boy taunting Santacon idiots at Tompkins in 2007.

Yolo.”

New Chewy Canon part on Christmas?

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Gerald Henderson uses an invisible trampoline to dunk on a complacent-looking Dwight Howard. It would have been glorious if the Bobcats won this game.

Can someone please explain this Pheed thing? And will it ever get big enough for Facebook to pay $1 billion for it? What will you guys do then?

Is this a photo from the T.F. or an unseen production still from City of God?

Last week, Skateboarder ran a “25 Questions” feature with #PhatStylez co-founder, Jack Sabback. Ice coffee, switch shove-its, and Commodore nachos are all chill.

Bill Pierce’s part from the KCDC video is now online. The Juicy J skate part is still heavily trending in 2012. (Loosely related: “Girls who like Juicy J are the worst.” — Matt Mooney.) You can find some other parts from the video here.

Due to the song, this clip is a mandatory post. Hard to tell where it’s based out of, but the description was astute enough to acknowledge the song’s best line, so it doesn’t matter.

Jereme Rogers A.K.A. J.R. Blastoff was spotted at Tompkins and interviewed on a variety of subjects: making the world a better place, Audemars, “raising human consciousness,” Honda Civics being the dirty white tee shirts of cars, and Lurker Lou not saying “Hi” to him.

Some footage of the Washington Heights homies. (C.R.E.A.M. > Y.O.L.O.)

There’s a new quarterpipe at the lot under the BQE in Williamsburg. Here are some tricks on it.

Principal QS shareholder, Alexander Mosley, has been living in Puerto Rico for the past half-year. He has a line in the middle of this Mayagüez skate plaza clip.

That short loading dock to cellar door bank spot on Canal and Washington Street is gone. They removed the bank. Watch Jose Pereyra’s part from the 2008 2nd Nature video because he has an ender on it.

New wooden bench spot downtown. It sucks, but people are still going to skate it.

Weird. The 11th and Wythe Street ledge turned into a hotel.

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.

Top Back ‘Til the Summer’s Done Links

Shout out to Wavy Mike & the rest of the crew for making our summer video possible.

Trailer for Black Dave’s upcoming music video, “Black Donald Trump.” B.D. > Every other skateboard rapper.

You’ve probably seen this kid Tyshawn Jones at 12th Street before. He’s Twelve-years-old and rips. Best of all, his entire “throwaway part” is filmed on the streets of Manhattan, with no skateparks in sight, which is amazing considering some kids don’t know the difference between filming in plazas/parks v.s. street spots these days. Someone tell Theotis to send him a box. Wait, that might be kinda hard…

Here’s a brief introductory promo video for Lurker Lou and Tyler Mate’s new board company, Iron Claw Skates.

Thanks to Lowcard Mag for coming out and covering the Quartersnacks anniversary party this past Thursday. They posted up some photos here. The seven-year anniversary will be at the Boom Boom Room and nobody’s getting in.

You’ve probably seen it already, but here’s a video of the Pittsburgh homies and some other people shredding around New York and the rest of the northeast.

Bill Pierce with a few lines on some cutty terrain in this new Nature Hardware commercial.

QS commentator “stoops” recently stated that he prefers Shawn Powers’ brand of nighttime street ripping to that of Anthony Pappalardo (which offended Pappalardo’s legion of legacy defenders.) Not sure why the internet is so fond of comparing everything, but we’re on Shawn’s side.

Check out the latest issue of Already Been Done if you have yet to do so. They have a great interview up with Allen Ying regarding his upstart magazine project, 43. While on the topic of online magazines, the digital version of the Philly-based Skate Jawn ‘zine is now online as well.

Oh, by the way, you guys were just celebrating the fall, right?:
