♫ I do all this… on my iPhone 6 ♫ New bro cam edits: “Instagram Direct #13” from Johnny Wilson, “Hit” via Genesis Evans, “Linger” via Jesse Alba, and “Funza Summer 2015″ via Mike Heikkila. NY Ramp Co. is #trending super hard in every phone edit these days :) ♫ You must have an Android ‘cuz you ain’t got Emojis ♫
The Warschauer Benches are on the shortlist of the funnest spots I’ve ever skated, and they’re nothing more than a better version of the Newport blocks from ~15 years ago. Kingpin has a full feature on their creation and history. Amazing how the formula for a perfect skate spot is no more sophisticated than decent ground + wooden benches + metal, and how often that goes ignored.
Isle’s Vase video is premiering on Thursday, November 19 at 8 P.M. and Paul Young’s Bleach video is premiering on Wednesday, November 25 at 8 P.M. Guess what theater? If you guessed the Imax on 68th Street, then you guessed wrong.
Did you know Fully Flared premiered eight years ago to the day? Village Psychic looked back on Anthony Pappalardo’s seminal yet at-the-time misunderstood section, which inspired legions of twenty-somethings to scour Bushwick for unchartered crust, caused a 5% spike in applications to Pratt’s sculpture program, and skyrocketed the demand for brown chino fabric among the world’s textile mills.
“I miss having Skinner as a friend, but I miss him even more as an enemy.” Boil the Ocean on the current state of the skater / security guard relationship.
Footage of the 5050 + quick set-up barhop in front of Wavy’s is in the Local Express friends section, although no footage could really do justice to how crazy that is.
Monster Children interviewed Pat O’Dell in light of Epicly Later’d much-needed return.
Some bits of New York footage in the extras from the Florida-based Exhibit video.
Dude you’re probably gonna be really bummed — but…the Hooters Rail is gone. What a fun spot! Shout out to Rodney Torres for being the first one to skate it, and to Connor Champion for switch nosesliding it just before the plaza got leveled.
Dreams do come true. Tha Tour 2 is on the way. Rich.. gang..
QS Sports Desk [Non] Play of the Week: This made me laugh a bit…”When you wanna be the Warriors but you ain’t the Warriors.”
Quote of the Week
Kuz: “Just give me the word, I’ll quit my job and break up with my girlfriend.”
Inquisitive Gentleman: “You have a girlfriend?”
Kuz: “No, but if I did, I’d break up with her.”
Much love and prayers to all our friends out in Paris.
