Someone explain how Antarctica is winning right now, weather-wise.
William Carpio, the man responsible for sitting there with me over several rounds of Presidentes and turning this site’s logo into a tangible cruiser board, wrote some kind words about our operation over on 12 Ounce Prophet. Big thanks to Will and all his help this past year.
“Dude, when the hell did Spanky get a gnarly tan, cut his hair, and move to Indonesia? Filming that Stay Gold part must have really done him in mentally.”
It is no secret that this site prides itself in being one of the internet’s greatest resources in all things Dylan Reider. He is an almost unanimous favorite skater for the QS crew right now, and has been the reason why many of us have deemed it unnecessary to hire a stylist for skateboard-related pursuits, as his video parts fill that void.

While on the topic of handsomeness and Thrasher meets Vogue, all headshots and upcoming S/S 2011 ad campaigns can be submitted here.
And also on the topic of QS-favorite skateboarders, The Chrome Ball Incident has a great Rick Howard post up for today. What the hell is going to happen at Girl and Chocolate once all the older dudes fade behind the scenes?

There is no reason you shouldn’t have seen the Epicly Later’d Season 3 trailer yet. It involves discussion of Love Park tattoos from 1993, Polaroids of lower back tatted strippers, why Javier Nunez deleted his Facebook, “dressing like a whore,” stealing skateboards from “two Oriental kids,” the correlation between shootings in North Philly and bump-to-bars, prison stories, why pushing someone while having a meat cleaver in your hand is considered robbery in the first degree, “the first time I seen a real uzi,” guns, knives, crack pipes, five lighters, and getting arrested for being “too silly.” Oh, and tell Kareem Campbell to call back Patrick O’Dell!
A lot of great off-shoot content from last week’s big mafia bust surfaced (largest in New York City history.) Check out this one of the 20 best nicknames (“Tony Bagels” is either the best nickname ever, or the name of Ghostface’s lost single) or this New York Post story about the significant decline in the mob’s fashion sense.
