Josh Velez has a quick interview over on the Air Jordan blog.

“You want a toke?” “I don’t do drugs.”

Frog posted the raw footage and B-sides to Hjalte’s guest board part.

…and Ben Chadourne posted the full battle behind Franco’s nollie cab flip.

“Is the speed of Jamie Foy’s ascent, from amateur to pro and SOTY the same year, a reflection of or reason behind the breakneck pace driving skate media these days?…Could the nod to Jamie Foy also serve as a quiet acknowledgement that it shoulda been Fred Gall one of those years?”

Iron Claw is [not] having a premiere for their new video this Wednesday, December 13, at 122 Meserole Street. Two showings: one at 8 P.M. and another at 9. Teaser here.

L-O-FUCKING-L at your poor ass life.

Though Ride doesn’t do much these days apart from continue to ask us why Chicago isn’t a bigger deal in skateboarding, Slap brought back the article predictions thread for 2018. “Shake Junt hires Ty Evans for next video: Chicken Drone Nowison.”

Here’s a new one from Jake Kuzyk and all the Vancouver boys.

Theories is posting raw files from Elkin’s videos. First episode is fall 2010, and features Aaron Herrington, Leo Gutman, Quim, and Vert God before he started to GRoE.

Tony Manfre and Pat Stiner look back at Static 3 for its ten-year anniversary.

“Like the flow of posts through social media, skateboard graphics are inherently ephemeral. They are destined to be worn and scuffed and distorted until all that remains is smeared paint and exposed wood. But some images are designed to linger, if only in the imagination.” On the ascent of Polar Skateboards…as a menswear brand.

Jeff Lenoce still has that flick. Go make a stack or something ;)

New Bunt with Hermdog. You think the guy in the comments found the song by now?

Harry Bergenfield filmed a two-minute Carlos Mendoza part in L.A.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The end of Clippers-Wizards was a little nuts.

Quote of the Week: “Marriage? Fuck that. I’ll never get married. Unless she’s rich as shit.” — E.T.

Jamal Smith tweeted this one yesterday. Probably, haven’t watched it this decade, but remember that finally tracking down that Diamond D song was a pivotal prepubescent moment. Also, shout out to all the 2017 Kasperholics.

QS Snackman tees are now available at Supreme. 274 Lafayette Street. Both in white and black. Sorry, no smalls. Medium, large and XL only.

Another round of mostly Manhattan-set Death Video throwaways.

Fred Gall, Jahmal Williams, Ricky Oyola and Joel Meinholz went into the woods of New England for Labor Day with a bunch of guns and somehow, no accidents happened. The photo of Oyola shooting a gun will probably be Photoshopped a million different ways and re-posted all over Slap and Tumblr by the end of the week.

Torey Pudwill skates his first cellar door. It’s for Red Bull, so there’s some jock narration in there. The bump to smith grind and the flatground backside flip on the bike path are tight though. Cameos from Zered Bassett and Quentin Tolentino.

Well, it’s safe to say that every fifteen-to-eighteen-year-old who hangs out at Tompkins is screwed. “Regular use of marijuana during adolescence can lead to irreversible IQ loss, findings from a long-range study suggest.”

If I could have two skateboards in the history of skateboards, they would be the the 1996 Keenan Milton Chocolate Knicks game deck (where #33 is a white guy…likely for legal reasons), and Andre Page’s War Effort pro model.

Have you guys seen Matt Mooney’s runway debut yet? #NYFW2012

Here’s a chill .GIF of almost naked girls holding QS shirts up. Go buy one.

If you need a stock photo for a pamphlet that warns kids about gangs, you could simply use a picture of some skateboarders. No wonder the Tribeca Skatepark resembles a jail…

Jeff Lenoce’s part in Baker Has a Deathwish should’ve been the last time Lil’ Wayne came anywhere near skateboarding. “Suck my skateboard.”

Reggie Miller admits that he pushed Greg Anthony in the 1995 playoffs during his hall of fame induction speech. Regardless, everyone in New York still hates him.
