Preview: Quartersnacks x Trukfit. Also is “Vine with a fisheye the new VX1000?”

A day at Flushing alongside Dipset’s 2002 Rap City freestyle.

Frozen in Carbonite reviews some books while drawing parallels to skating and stuff. “One could say that skaters born between 1972 and 1975 (Markovich, etc.) got screwed because they were too young to get in on that eighties money, yet too old to get in on the late 90s shoe/board sale boom.”

The Tennyson remixes continue. This time, it’s a Chocolate mini video with re-edited parts from Kenny Anderson, Chris Roberts, Gino and Richard Mulder.

Some guys from Beyond Skate Shop out in Finland came to New York and put together a cool montage.

A bunch of clips from New Yorkers below drinking age being productive: 1) Spring Intermission by Michael Elijah, which has a Rob C cameo 2) iPhone montage via Kasper. 3) Death Video Throwaways Vol. 7. 4) Tribeca montage via the Dunions.

Street League re-imagined on a curb.

The crew behind the In Crust We Trust video takes a trip up to Montreal.

Ishod does a huge backside flip in bright swim trunks, then crashes into a tree.

Tony Hawk’s first skateboard is now in the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Anyone who kicked you out of a spot this past weekend is an asshole.

Palace eBay Watch: My dad bought a 1989 Toyota Corolla in 2003 for $300 and it ran for a good sixteen months.

Spot Updates: 1) There are two [likely temporary] small manual pads at the former Bubble Banks right now. Get some wheelies in while you can, because they’ll probably build stuff on top or around them. 2) There’s a doghouse / spine ramp thing at the BQE spot now.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Danny Green breaks Jesus Shuttlesworth’s record for most three-point shots made in a NBA Finals with 23.

How awful is the title of that new Jay-Z album? Not that there is any interest in the album around here either way, but the title is so particularly bad that it had to be mentioned. Either way, thanks for the memories.

Nothing like a good front shove. Ishod Wair at some secret gap spot. Photo by Zander Taketomo.

As if Matt Mooney getting busted for the croissant heist of the century after tweeting about it wasn’t enough, here’s further evidence that you should avoid social media after committing idiotic hilarious “crimes.”

Chris Nieratko interviews the judges, skaters, and producer from this year’s mess of a One in a Million series. What are skateboarders who spend an unhealthy amount of time typing YouTube comments going to complain about now? (Full QS interview with Lurker Lou coming this week or next at the latest. Weather has been nice, so transcribing/editing has been slow.)

Called it. Lil’ Wayne inks an endorsement deal with Supra. (Original post here.)

Here’s a New York-based “Day in the Life” clip with Danny Supa. More “lifestyle” stuff than actual skating, but the song makes it great. Any skate clips edited to a song off AZ’s first few albums are more or less guaranteed a link here — maybe even that Tyrone Olson part where he skates to “Sugar Hill.”

Someone is making a documentary about Harry Jumonji. The interviews in the trailer seem real honest and unfiltered, so it definitely has the potential to be great. Watch the trailer here.

Andre Page flatground lines at the T.F., Hawaiian shirts, strobe lights, and an avoidance of the most notorious line off that “Ass” song, all in this GoPro clip.

The VHS aesthetic continues with Twomanji, a video whose description boasts the revitalization of laserdiscs.

Pro skaters giving back to the community, one worn-out ledge at a time.

Some new photos over on the Dunions Tumblr, including one that solves the mystery of what happens to Tompkins’ legendary cones. (A dog ate them. No, really.)

KCDC temporarily moved to 68 N. 3rd for the summer. It’s still off the Bedford stop, but a bit further west than before (closer to the bridge, as well.)

Bill Strobeck recommends some music over on The World’s Best Ever for people who don’t mind playlists that exclude Meek Mill. Oh, and Dreamchasers 2 comes out Monday, May 7th.

R.I.P. Os Dias Do Video, the internet’s leading destination for pirated skate videos.

Quote of the Week:


FOR THE 21.3% OF QS READERSHIP THAT FOLLOWS SPORTS: In commemoration of the regular NBA season ending this week, here are JaVale McGee’s top eight dumbest plays. The most entertaining player in the league, but not in a Derrick Rose sort of way. We’re eternally grateful that he got traded to a playoff team, because it means at least an extra week of this.
