We’re on the cusp of possibly living in a world where Eddy Curry has an NBA championship ring. No justice. Anyway, DuFlockaRant is a way better mixtape than any of the Lebron Flocka James tapes, so you know who we’re going for…
“I found a bucket and I put it on my head because stuff was falling all over the place,” Gall continues, “and I’m screaming, ‘Where’s the women and children?’ But there are no women and children because it’s a monk monastery. I was just in hero mode — just trying to save lives, dude.” A story about Fred Gall saving a bunch of Cambodian monks from a fire. Jaws wouldn’t do that, he’d just ollie off the building. Vote Freddy.
Here’s a glimpse of a fairly underexposed skate scene: Capetown, South Africa (there might be some U.K. footage in there though.) A lack of a Tompkins Square Park withstanding, their spots don’t look much different from the ones in the northeastern United States.
While we’re on the topic of Africa, these dudes are way gnarlier than any skater on the planet (except maybe Fred Gall.)
G-Shock did a commercial segment with QS-homie Rafael “Haffa” Pereira. The “How do you dress?” question was first answered with “Man, I don’t fucking know,” before resorting to a more diplomatic (and hilarious) answer of “The way I dress is urban.”
Jonathan Mehring with some recent photos of Kevin Tierney, Luis Tolentino, Jake Johnson, and others over on the Skateboarder site.
A “Day in the Life” video of sorts with Zered Bassett and Kevin Tierney skating around downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. Doc Holiday’s being “the best place in the world” is highly debatable.
Be careful if you take that trip down to Philly this summer.
That thin concrete ledge a few blocks south of the Tribeca Skatepark got sandblasted. Free meal at the neighboring Shake Shack for the first person to re-wax it.
Quote of the Week
Pad: “Yeah, I don’t do really do brunch anymore, but went to this spot in the West Village today. It wasn’t that good and way too expensive.”
Roctakon: “Sounds like the West Village. Also sounds like brunch.”
