Used To Be With Torey At Santos

Official Grammy Afterparty

Sean Dahlberg has a sick new 11-minute clip featuring tons of 917 video outtakes, Max Palmer doing a hardflip, and John Choi footage. (Related.)

R.B. Umali and Ron Deily with the best “guy skating around Lower Manhattan on a weekend” clip in while. Haven’t seen anyone skate that Robert Puleo bank in forever :)

TWS uploaded Charlie Cassidy’s ender part from John Valenti’s new video, NY Archive. The frontside kickflip over the big rail in the Westside Highway Park is pretty wild, and is that the first multi-level Reggaeton Ledges line?

“We now enter a realm where seemingly everything been done, in which all eras exist simultaneously, where nothing and everything is cool and wack all at once everywhere.” Boil the Ocean re: what it takes to impress us in 2018, and Ty Evans.

Volume 8 of Elkin Raw Files. One of the best ones yet.

Josh Stewart talks to the Nine Club this week + Brian Panebianco and Ryan Higgins talk to Philly’s “City Wide” show.

Chris Mulhern mashed up some of his favorite clips from the past few years into a “Second Sighting” montage, which includes a bunch of T.J. footage at the beginning.

A couple new clips of Stevie Williams skating in Barcelona via…this Weed Maps clip.

B.J. Wishard uploaded all the parts from his NJ-based video, Way Cool, to YouTube.

Not New York, not east coast, not even North American! But this Remy Tav “Welcome to WIP” part is really sick. Fully yelled at the screen when he clipped on the final ollie.

A true testament to the abysmal state of skateboard Twitter is the fact that after ~eight years of being on there, the Quartersnacks account’s most popular post is of a scooter kid focusing a skateboard. Maybe they really are taking over!

“Stripper punched out my teeth after I called her a bad mom.” Good. “One of the restaurants I was interviewing for was called, ‘Smile.’”

Sremmlife 3 is going to be a triple album but they haven’t given us a release date. “The only human on earth I’d trade places with is Swae Lee.” — Pryce Holmes.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The guy who reposted this on Twitter probably summed it up best…”You’d have trouble defending this with a shotgun.”

Quote of the Week
Ashamed Gentleman: “I actually don’t know how to powerslide.”
Max Palmer: “I wish you didn’t tell me that.”

Culture ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Max Palmer, Andrew Wilson, Chris Millic and Nolan Benfield went to skate Cuba this past winter. Sean Dahlberg made the video, and Colin Sussingham took da photos.

Chocolate is better than Girl in yet another enjoyable Bobshirt interview, this time with Scott Johnston. Includes Ty Evans’ full raw footage from S.J. trying the 180 switch crook on the J. Kwon gap-to-ledge from Carroll’s Modus part, A.K.A. The Greatest Trick Ever Done™, in addition to the story behind the sequence and clip.

Max Hull has a sick, new [mostly skatepark] edit featuring heavy doses of Max, Conor and John Choi footage. Who else heard rumors about the top secret John Choi part?

Even watching footage from that Roosevelt Island ledge-to-bank is stressful.

New nine-minute edit from Blue Couch. The ride-on grind of death at Chase is pretty wild. Has anyone transferred between the pillars at Cooper Union like that before?

#TRENDWATCH2017: Skating the top of the Tompkins bench.

Josh Stewart reflects on ten years of Theories of Atlantis, and the once highly-contentious comments of his website, where a seminal cellar doorist ran amuck.

Transworld has a new edit from John Valenti with a bunch of the Politic dudes skating Valencia, Spain’s third city for skateboarding (i.e. you probably assume most of its spots are in Barcelona and not 200 miles away.) Features basically a new Caddo part.

Paul Rodriguez v.s. the Bayside Ten, ten years ago. [#ABP, four years ago ya.]

Something special for all the people whose favorite skaters have names that sound like obscure post-WW2 existentialists: a compilation of J.B. Gillett footage in San Francisco. Threw this song on immediately after watching.

Someone put together an Instagram compilation of Adrian Del Campo, the most well-regarded flatground skater on the social media circuit, and architect of the nollie back heel stomp heard around the world.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Sure, this buzzer-beater broke Twitter, Devin Booker scored 70 (in a loss though…), but this man has the play of the week, maybe the year. (It’s not Russell Westbrook, btw.)

Quote of the Week: “When I was 20, all I wanted to do was impress girls. And now, I’m 30 and all I want to do is impress 20-year-old boys.” — Torey Goodall re: E.T.

MikeWill’s album is a rap industry friends montage.

Party at 8

QS x DGK coming next month.

Cee Lo, the new one from LurkNYC, is great. Sick spots (probably the most astute prop grate finders working today), a soundtrack sure to please anyone who’s ever left a “you guys actually like this?”-comment on a Quartersnacks YouTube video, and an awesome ender part from John Shanahan (above) that will be on repeat for the foreseeable future. Fakie bigspin manny line was a real crowd pleaser :) Also, those security guards at the gold rail on 52nd Street might be the worst in the city…

New interview with Gino Iannucci in Italy’s Brief Glance mag. Starts on page 37.

The 550 Wheels promo begins with what’s basically a full, new Ron Deily part. (There’s a junk spot successor already?) Also has a Kevin Taylor appearance.

Max Palmer Presents: A new barrier at the Bushwick Blue Park.

An iPhone video from Jesse Alba, a Blackberry (yeah) clip from E.J., and a handycam video from Rob Harris.

John Valenti’s Local Express video is online in full. New full Caddo part.

“What advice can you give someone wanting to work in skateboarding?” “Whatever it is you want to do, just start doing it on your own. Shoot photos how you want, film how you want, put up your videos, reach out to the companies you want to work for…” Skateboard Story has a solid interview with Transworld‘s Blair Alley about still working at one of the remaining print publications left in skateboarding.

SMLTalk chronicles the stylistic evolution of hip-hop white guy icon, Robert Welsh.

Matt Nordess at the top-10 worst ledge and less bad places for Labor Skateshop.

QS faves, Budapest’s Rios Crew, goes to Croatia.

An interview with everyone’s fave Scandinavian beast, Hjalte Halberg.

Couple quick New York clips in Flo Mirtain’s new part for Jenkem.

Is riding over the full length of a car a NBD?

The odds being stacked against company comebacks never stops anyone from trying.

A skate tour through Alaska with Brock, Worrest, etc.

It’ll always be Pigeon Shit Double-Set to me ;)

Turn audio on for maximum effect.

If you ask 100 people to give you the twenty best Young Thug songs of 2015, you’re going to get 100 different mixes. Provided you don’t want to sift through five thousand songs, Hotbox Social did a pretty good job of condensing his past twelve months into ninety minutes of music — though you’d probably wanna include “Dome,” “Numbers,” “Bang Bang,” “Pacifier” — actually no, it’s sorta impossible…

QS Sports Desk: Going to switch it up a bit this week and link an article. I thoroughly enjoyed this new interview with Real Sports‘ Bryant Gumbel. His whole “as you age, you care less and less about what a bunch of 20-year-olds are doing”-thing is something I often try to remind [30+] people pontificating on the [non-existent] “death” of skate videos. Sk8 videos r 4 the youths man.

Quote of the Week: “He showed up to the skatepark in a cashmere poncho.” — Dom Travis

Still some beanies [and assorted sizes of fall goods] left in the webstore, even though it’s going to be seventy degrees on Christmas Eve
