Cyrus Nike + 917 Parts B-Sides Mix

October 25th, 2017 | 6:04 am | Video & Remixes | 1 Comment

Looks like it has turned into a proverbial Cyrus week ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

With video blogs running scarce in 2017 (promise to stop talking about those come next year…it’s time for me to move on with new loves), and Logan retiring at 26, these should cover a decent batch of B-sides from both the 917 video and his new Nike part ♥ Also includes a couple greatest hits from random Johnny and SB edits.

Filmed by… Johnny Wilson and Logan Lara. Paid for by these sketchy $4 hats from Cyrus’ Korean sponsor.

Cyrus has a new part out to commemorate his Nike colorway and line of alarm systems. Once an eminent Vimeo auteur, recent times have forced Johnny Wilson’s hand into helping the greater good, e.g. ensuring that the 917 video would one day exist — so much that his year-old clips have become #TBT fodder for the world’s best skater. Though the Vimeo page remains overrun by tumbleweeds, Johnny’s latest for the Swoosh is his first Cyrus part since the final minute of Sure, and features cameos from a bunch of faces you’d recognize from a 2015 clip — Max Palmer, Nik Stain, Vincent Touzery, and Franco, the legendary trashcan warrior from Horny.

Now what’s good with that pre-ripped and pre-dirty Max Palmer colorway?

Happy birthday Torey Goodall

Yo, the fucking height on T.J’s fakie heelflip… Also how far away do you think we are from someone ollieing the 8-flat-8 at the Met? Rumor has it that Bald Head Ed tried it back in the day, but maybe someone should take Chris Pfanner to see some paintings next time he’s in New York?

“Together, Lara and Olson have achieved a small, apocalyptic miracle: they’ve bottled the dreamy spirit of the skate shop.” Kyle Beachy has some nice words for the feel-good film of the year, the 917 Video. Also Logan moved back to L.A. and we’re never gonna see him again.

“From start to finish Sabotage 5 is a gloriously losing war against capitulation to the inevitable. Like any decent funeral, this eulogy is delivered by the immediate family, rather than transient pros, with the locals turning in their last tapes skating Love Park as it was, and a grip of tricks as it is dismantled.” More great video reviews! That one was re: Sabotage 5 via Boil the Ocean.

Monday #inspo: Village Psychic did a great Ron Deily remix with his past year or two of footage. We rigged one back in 2015 as well + this Junk Spot part was a good time.

Better Skate Than Never has been posting some fire Josh Velez .GIFs.

Here’s a short “Summer Trip to N.Y” clip with a pretty sick ender.

Josh Kalis and Brian Wenning skating Philly together. In 2017.

Grey has some pics from the making of the Palace video / the promo for their skatepark is amazing / shout out to Sidewalk for telling us all the Don’t Watch That PWBC news segments are actually still online.

Spot Updates: The rails at Crackhead Park got knobbed, and has anyone stolen the Delancey Curb bench back yet?

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Thank goodness the NBA is back. Gotta give this one to Wiggins, even though now the only thing the Sports Desk roots for is Russell Westbrook’s happiness and well-being (J.R. too.) Must’ve felt like a postseason-esque loss if you’re an OKC fan.

Quote of the Week: “T-Pain is the black Rob Dyrdek.” — Carl Williams

I love Future like one of my dearest friends, but would honestly trade Super Slimey for like, three new Quan and Thug songs.

Colin Sussingham has been posting a bunch of photographs from the 917 video over on The Local Weather. The Max photo above is stolen from there obvs.

Here is a YouTube link to the 917 video, for all those averse to fringe video players. Still overwhelmed by how contagiously good vibes that entire video is.

So sick of the being bad at skateboarding on purpose trend.

“What’s the hardest trick in skateboarding?” “Getting a job.” There’s been a relatively decent batch of content about skateboarding’s most difficult maneuver floating around this past week: Heath Kirchart ranks all the jobs he’s had since retiring from pro skateboarding + Brandon Westgate talks about lumber mills and cranberries.

Brian Panebianco made an eleven minute documentary that highlights one of the bonds that formed between a homeless Love Park local and the park’s skateboarders.

The new Gang Corp edit is sick.

“Unlike Alien Workshop, DC recognized a new generation preparing to don swishy pants and opened its East Coast flow spigots, and now spot-searching Droors-endorser John Shanahan helps DC find a path after long years of wandering.” Boil the Ocean dwells on how DC is re-routing its approach to the skate shoe landscape.

Bill Strobeck put together a VX best-of edit from roughly 2000-2004 for Thrasher.

Cafe Creme has an interview with #QSTOP10 fave, Magnus Bordewick.

Gotta respect a “D.C. to Boston” edit that completely skips New York. This place can be a real pain in the ass, but at least we got an hour at Big Screen Plaza yesterday.

Rob Campbell footage will never not get a link ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Skate Jawn made a Glory Challenge edit with a bit of street skating mixed in.

Spot Updates: The banks under the 125th Street 1 train station have been under construction for a year or two. The oft-skated ones on the south side of 125th have a massive curb at the start now, but you can skate one on the north side of the street — although someone’s going to need to throw some Bondo on that crack right before it.

Quote of the Week
Jason Byoun: “I’m depressed yo.”
Inquisitive Gentleman: “Why?”
Jason Byoun: “Summer’s over yo.”

The 917 Video Exists

It’s September 17th, the 917 video exists, we can’t keep the joke going forever, but we can wonder if Stu is jealous that Hugo and Nolan have the two best slams in the video.

The best skate videos are the ones that make you smile, and it’s impossible to not smile and giggle your way through this one. Logan is the best and it’s going to be really sad when he flies back to L.A. in an hour.

Happy Birthday Adam Zhu and Colin Sussingham ♥
