New QS spring merch is now available at Supreme & Labor. Available at other U.S. stores this week. Japan also this week. Europe and Canada next week. Available online next Monday, May 9th at midnight. It’s cool.

Torey Goodall’s impact on the world of skateboard fashion continues to emerge. Ripped Laces interviewed Vintage Sponsor, the stylist behind John Shanhan’s DGK part and archiver of nineties Polo gear and old skate tees alike.

Always down for any tribute to the pre-YouTube wild west days of the skateboard internet. Village Psychic did a post about the post-Yeah Right! Quicktime tour videos that would run on Crailtap in the early 2000s.

This line is peak early 2000s Lordz nostalgia :) #NHNScomeback

Out of all the interviews I’ve done for this website or elsewhere — and this should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with his reputation for being the happiest human alive — Karl Watson is on the shortlist for most enjoyable to talk to. (I accidentally deleted the audio before transcribing and he was even down to do it again.) His hour-plus episode on the Shetler Podcast was a joy to listen to.

There’s a new Kalis part to wrap up his “Life on Video” series. Happy 40th KLS-1.

Some chill footage of Hjalte and the Blobys in this Las Palmas trip clip that Tombo just posted. There’s an $800 ticket if you leave Thursday

The first five 411s, compressed into nine minutes.

“Are Eric Koston’s indigo-tinted industry maneuvers helping to usher in a post-board sponsor era in which deck makers become loose, image-oriented collectives for pros and various bros to shack up for a time, under some ‘gest’ or similar rubric, before drifting apart?” — Boil the Ocean on Prince’s legacy in skateboarding, and the prospect of increased fluidity in board sponsor changes.

Rhythm is a dancer and here’s a compilation of board-snap rollaways.

Cooper Park may soon have a 10 P.M. curfew. Was it even lit up to begin with?

New video from the crew behind Tengu is on the way. Daniel Kim’s new hair is great.

An interview with Big Brother‘s Rick Kosick & Menace’s Fabian Alomar. (~35:00 mark.)

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: They just won’t let Jeremy Lin alone…Everyone please cross your fingers for a Heat-Cavs Eastern Conference Finals :)

^^^The only Prince homage in rap that really matters.

The Michigan Deposit Bottle Scam

October 8th, 2012 | 8:35 am | Daily News | 1 Comment

“No, an 18-wheeler’s no good. Too much overhead. You got permits, weigh stations, tolls. Look, you’re way out of your league.” You know that thing about life imitating art? Yeah. The Quartersnacks Michigan Bottle Deposit Scam Tour: Coming Soon. Our G & A goes down 50%!

If you ordered a tee or board, your package will be shipped tomorrow. Black tees are sold out online, but will be available at Supreme later this week.

You may have noticed that the entire school of which 12th & A is a part of has been completely fenced off. Well, the building is not condemned, like many had assumed. (There were rumors of a developer trying to get the school off the land in order to build condos some years back.) There is a structural defect on the eastern wall (12th & A is on the west side of the building), and the Board of Ed. had to temporarily close the school in order to administer emergency repairs. You can’t skate there for now, but hopefully, the spot remains when it’s re-opened.

It looks like summer now ends on Columbus Day instead of Labor Day. There’s a place you could go this winter, though. Cut back on the bars and start saving now.

Late, but Ice Cream rebooted their skate team with a few kids who have been ripping around New York these past few years. Not sure about Easter egg colored shoes, but new footage of Andre Beverley, Stephan Martinez and Jamel Marshall is always welcome.

Connor Champion’s full part from the NC-based 3Hunna video.

The Philadelphia City Council temporarily put a bill that would increase fines for skateboarding from $300 to $2,000 (with possibly up to 90 days in jail) on a temporary hold. Good thing a city that saw a 23% increase in murders last year has its priorities in order. Philly sucks.

Some dudes skating every single crusty bank spot in New York City. #noskateparks

Did Paulgar re-do his look to land some street style shots on menswear blogs?

Here’s an all-night MCVX montage. They skate Crosby Street and seem to be in favor bringing back skateboarding to the front of Union Square, something that has been on a consistent decline since summer 2004.

Fabian Alomar is currently facing 26-to-life in jail as part of California’s “three strikes” law (his “third strike” was a non-violent offense.) DGK released four minutes of largely unseen footage, claiming it would have been his Menace video part, had it actually ever come out. If Fabian has four minutes of footage, there’s got to be other people with unseen clips. Why don’t they just go ahead and release the entire “Menace Video?” Better 17-years-late than never. For now, DGK is selling tees with 100% of the proceeds going to Fabian’s legal fees.

One of the most beloved curbs in lower Manhattan (as seen in those Skate NYC clips from the late-80s and Aaron Szott’s Lurkers 2 section) is no more.
