“I didn’t know I was beast until I varial flipped a trash can.” — Genesis Evans

E.J. started to post bits and pieces of the DANY video over on his Vimeo page. You could still purchase hard copies of the video over at The Dany Store as well. Or if you want to get weird, we also saw it for sale at a barber shop in Japan, so…

Genny’s part is the first to go live, and it’s every bit as beast as sports analysts thought it would be when he was rolling away from the aforementioned varial flip. This video was what ushered in the wave of people skating the bad ledge at Houston Park again (also the inspiration for this post from March), so its chill to see this generation still keeping up with Anthony Correa’s business practices from Mixtape by placing a mid-line can on the pathway.

Should be caught up on all holiday webstore orders today / tomorrow, and end of the years lists, best ofs, etc. will begin to go live shortly ♥ #sorry4thewait

Never Switch Up — DANY Video Extras

Sometimes you’re just filming your homie in the East Village and you gotta stop and say hi to your grandma walking by. Below is a video of nearly twenty minutes of outtakes from Emilio Cuilan’s DANY video, featuring Shawn Powers, Adam Zhu, Jason Byoun, Yaje Popson, Genesis Evans and some fire Chris Mango Millic footage.

Hard to really understate how proud of everyone involved in this project the QS office is. Obvs we are a media enterprise that specializes in [often justifiably] complaining about how difficult it is to be productive on a skateboard in New York. This cast of native New Yorkers (save Jason, who is from the superior state of New Jersey) managed to pull off a rad full length video filmed entirely within this city of ungodly distraction. Purchase a copy of the video via thedanystore.com. Copies arriving in Japan shortly, btw.

Before the T.F, New Yorkers learned tricks at these things called “street spots,” and now, everyone learns crooked grind nollie flips between beefing over who stole whose iPhone 4S with a cracked screen and no data plan at L.E.S. Great skateboarders didn’t particularly “come of age” at Tompkins. Throughout its decade as the city’s prime meet-up spot, it was mostly home to adults that had already “peaked” and began working on their party skills, recent ex-pats, and burgeoning rap stars. Yaje is one of the few exceptions: a native T.F. local who is actually, um, talented enough to pull through with a full video part filmed entirely in New York City.

Thrasher just posted Yaje’s DANY part, filmed and edited by Emilio Cuilan throughout the past year. Give it up to holistic knee cures, and a career-long dedication to innovation at Columbus Park via an East Village native and Rich Mahogany alumnus.

Buy the DANY video here, or at Supreme or Labor.

Emilio Cuilan’s DANY video is now available for purchase from TheDANYstore.com. Supreme and Labor also have copies for sale. The video features full parts from Shawn Powers, Genesis Evans, Jason Byoun, Adam Zhu and Yaje Popson, plus appearances from a whole lot of others. Minute teaser for the video can be found here.

Happy birthday Keith Denley.

There’s this video of Kenny Anderson and Vincent Alvarez skating Lenox Ledges (Antony Correa cameo!), and yes, Kenny footage is always a pleasure, but there’s only one bit of Lenox footage from the past week that anyone was talking about. Good lord.

Trife alumnus, Black Dave Willis, has a new part live on the Thrasher site entitled “NYBD.” Gap to front blunt on the out ledge across from World Trade is a wild one.

Can’t Ban the J.B. Man.

Tredje Akten is a rad 20-minute video by the homie Tao from the Malmö + Copenhagen scene. Features Ville, Hjalte, etc + a full Polar section at the end.

NY Skateboarding posted part one of apparently a three-part series of video interviews with Keith Hufnagel. This one talks about meeting Keenan Milton, the infamous Ryan Hickey house that housed all homeless skateboarders of the era, moving to San Francisco, skating Embarcadero, etc.

Gotta #respect a ten-minute Boston video that doesn’t hit Eggs once. Not easy. “Mean Streets Volume 2,” A.K.A. the LurkNYC boys go to Boston.

Two teasers for upcoming videos that should be a good time: Division from Politic Skateboards (#caddoalert), and Elan Vital from Studio Skateboards.

What Youth did a quick video interview with Challex Olson. He slipped on a sandwich.

Who’s going to lug this parking block to Tompkins T.F. West?

This is tasteless and insane, but you can visualize every scenario of this hypothetical Seinfeld script that imagines the characters’ lives in the week after 9/11.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Who cares about Melo’s Olympic postgame interview, Russell Westbrook’s “Now I Do What I Want” video is singlehandedly the most inspirational sports moment of 2016, and the only promotional material the NBA needs for the 2016-2017 season. #MVP.

Started the past week worth of mornings with this, and it worked out pretty well :)

Has the site fallen off a bit as of late? Sure. Was Quartersnacks Vogue week (see #19) just a really high concept editorial week where we barely post anything on the said theme because we’re under-qualified to report on it? Definite possibility. Are we looking towards a bright future of reportage on New York skateboard minutiae, silly remix videos, and mediocre skate clips? Absolutely!

Jasper Dohrs’ Thirty Purse part is full of quick-footed curbery, wallrides on chain links, ambitious heaves over the First Avenue bike lane, and is entirely filmed in New York.

End of an era, although it probably needed an update unless you’re a nostalgia over function type of guy ;) Riverside Skatepark is getting a cement re-design, which includes a bowl and halfpipe. And wait, is that a…regular, straight ledge?!

Gucci Mane for Supreme.

Genesis made made a July 4th clip to the Song of the Summer, circa 2000.

Pep Kim made a quick mini doc on Aaron Herrington’s rise to sketchy 5050s on sketchier handrail fame. The 5050 on the Riverside Drive & 111th rail is still ♥

Diamond Days #89. Keith is proud of this one, but his QS part is still R.I.P.

Always nice to see Newark footage. “Cityscapes” via Municipal Skateboards.

Oh you thought this early-2000s nostalgia shit was a game? The D3 is coming back.

Village Psychic runs down a history of strange skater + sponsor pairings. Weird, because I have Greg Lutzka’s one and only Krooked pro model hanging on the wall above my computer…

Carroll and Chico at the L.E.S. Park on the week of It Was Written‘s 20th bday.

Gotta appreciate people’s optimism when embarking on the uphill journey of rebooting a once beloved but ultimately short lived skateboard company. Here’s an interview about the Menace reboot.

Quick B-sides clip via Russian Bob.

Hey, I’m here for the half cab flips and Alicia Keys samples.

QS Sports Desk: Signing Joakim Noah for four years was, um, an interesting decision, but gotta admit that this interview rewired some of the headscratching, although it probably won’t mean much once November rolls around, and who’s really stupid enough to care about the Knicks anyway I dunno I’m out man.

Quote of the Week: “It’s like The Berrics, but for art.” — E.J.

Have a good week everyone! :)
