Great way to open an interview with Karl Watson: “Wtf are you so happy about?”

There’s a high volume of three-second bust Midtown spots in the new clip from Traffic.

Got a kick out of SMLTalk’s Boston spot directory. Dana Ericson already did any trick you wanted to try at Eggs switch in Filas, Aquarium ledges are actually way harder to skate than they look on film, etc. And FWIW, this place in Berlin is “the absolute worst skatepark in recorded human history,” not Watertown.

A 2014 web clip remix of your favorite third-generation Girl teamrider, and favorite first-and-second-generation Girl teamrider’s favorite third-generation Girl teamrider :)

HD video blog #4 from Johnny Wilson. I just miss Mike Giglotti man :(

Not a ton of Lucas footage in the Helas mixtape, but it is still a fun watch.

Ian Reid has been running in some weird scenes these days

Colin Sussingham has a nice photo feature over on the TWS website.

Did the Plan B video really come out?

A #listicle of the best tricks done down Clipper, which experienced quite a resurgence this year. Switch front blunt and alley oop 180 switch back 5050 got snubbed fam. That, and Muska switch noseslide should have been number one.

A late but enjoyable entrant to the “Summer Trip to New York” clip cycle.

Yo you know what’s really annoying about DVS tour videos? You see them and think, “Oh sick, I get to see Daewon skate outside of his typical SoCal comfort zone” — but then dude only has like 2-3 clips in the entire video. ANYWAY, The DVS team is pretty fun: Torey Pudwill took the Reres Award from whoever may have previously held it for the Milan grate this year, that fakie 5050-halfcab-5050-180 combo is wild, and Luis’ grind down the Le Dome hubba from the flat part (it’s over waist high) is insane.

This was the best video of 2014. Truly inspiring stuff. He really is the best:

(Another one.)

To be honest, Luis is also the best.

Dude, but to be really really honest, Muska is ALSO the best.

They’re building a new skatepark in Harlem (First Avenue and 114th.) Should be done in the spring, but you know how that goes. It’s still Lenox Ledges 4ever ♥♥♥

Blackberry’s business model has turned towards re-issuing the symbol of the partyboy skater c. 2007-2008 for those privy to nostalgia.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: You don’t get Rondo for his shooting / lack thereof. Great to have him on a relevant team again. Hey NBA, please take the Knicks or Lakers off the Christmas schedule and exchange it with a Mavs game. Thx.

(Late) Monday Links & Things

It seems to have been a slow week for the internet. A big week for being “under the weather” in more ways than one. Need to get back in the habit of posting these in the morning though.

Thankfully, it’s forty degrees outside and nothing is really skateable. Midtown is actually pretty clear, but the one decent spot that you might not get kicked out of up there is still covered in snow.

Forty Degree Snow Report: 12th Street Edition

Forty Degree Snow Report: 54th Street Edition. It’s permanently raining from the scaffolding here.

Forty Degree Snow Report: Alexander Mosley Edition. I’m going to be sure to e-mail him back with a vivid description of our weather to get him jealous.

Forty Degree Snow Report: Fashion / Cargos & Uggs Edition (?)

Not sure where this video is based out of (there’s a lot of footage from around here though), but it’s a solid thirty-minute project by Max Hull featuring Dylan James, Paul Tucci and others. A good way to pass the time if you’re forfeiting efforts at skateboarding for a few more weeks.

Great Song Choices in Video Parts: Volume One. Completely forgot Rick had skated to this, at least prior to a few weeks ago when someone’s maligned conception of “a half hour,” turned into us sitting in an office for three-hours and almost watching the entire Girl/Chocolate Box Set.

Some late-to-the-party news…

Be sure to check out Joseph Delgado’s promo video for NYC Griptape. It’s been online for a minute, but is the first great local part of 2011. Features cameos from Rodney Torres and Shawn Powers.

In case you have been in a place without the internet, Luis Tolentino now rides for DVS and grinds up Houston, Texas handrails with plywood-on-grass runways. Big congratulations goes to Luis, he’s been skating fast as hell, doing his own thing, and channeling New York skating no matter where he is for as long as anyone can remember, so him getting some recognition like that is way overdue.

Aside from the skate spots, and an occasional cool building or two, the east side of Midtown is the most disgusting place in New York during the weekends.
