“Wavy Wings” is the new one from Andre Page’s Inkwell Commons imprint. Features Josh Velez further exploring the [switch] slappy and wallie arc of his skateboard career, which leaving quick footed ledge-ry to those two wooden benches in the financial district that are somehow the only subsequent ledges in lower Manhattan that you get time at. However, the spot’s most transcendent moment may be the switch slappy nosegrind pop-out that combines all of the aforementioned ingredients :)

Guest tricks from Nick Nunez, Kadeem Walters, John Diaz, Connor Champion, Tyshawn Jones and Troy Stilwell with reportedly the best clip he ever got in his life.

Filmed by Andre Page. Edit by CRUZXCTRL.

Merry Christmas. This our our tenth Christmas clip. It is also the shortest out of the ten, but that’s due to some stuff for upcoming projects getting put aside :)

We’ve never issued an apology for poor filming before. We alienated anyone who could be offended by bad filming in 2007 at the very latest. However, the worst filmed clip in this entire video is one of Jake Johnson, who is the best, and a long-time benefactor of the steady hands of Ryan Garshell, Bill Strobeck, Brengar et al. Sorry about that. First and last time you’ll see an apology for really bad filming on here.

Enjoy your holiday and the 50+ degree days up ahead.

Features Max Palmer, Dallas Todd, Keith Denley, Jake Johnson, Zach Baker, Pad Dowd, Lurker Lou, Alexander Mosley, Kevin Tierney, Josh Velez, Nick Nunez, Connor Champion, Andre Page, Kadeem Walters, Matt Perez, Alex Olson, Ty Lyons, Sweet Waste, Antonio Durao, Mike Gigliotti, Johnny Wilson, and Cyrus Bennett.

Contributing filmer: Andre Page.

When I die, bury me inside the Gucci store…but like actually.

It’s that time of year again. This one is a little different because it includes a quick Euro interlude from our time in Paris and Copenhagen this summer. Thanks to everyone who looked out while we were out there: Rich Homie Juan, Frey Dogg, Hjalte (I lost your line for some unknown reason, sorry, I’m an idiot), etc. Enjoy your long weekend and start planning those outfits for NYFW14!

We *would* include an alternate YouTube link, but apparently they started disabling audio on account of music rights again? Sick! Glad you record labels are keeping your business models current!

Oh, and in the interest of full disclosure, this entire clip would be edited to “You the World” if only it had come out a week before. Unfortunately, it came out on Wednesday, and the clip was already halfway done at that point :(

dre all white

All white season is upon us.

We’re up to nine Christmas clips and nine Start of Summer clips…

Features Josh Velez, Rob Gonyon, Keith Denley, Matthew Perez, Connor Champion, Troy Stillwell, Kadeem Walters, Lurker Lou, Emilio Cuilan, Elijah Cole, Lui Elliot, Andre Page, Eli Reed, Brendan Carroll, Jack Sabback, Zach Baker, Sweet Waste, Will Robson-Scott, Pad Dowd, Kevin Tierney and Tyler Tufty.

This Memorial Day Weekend also commemorates four years since QS relaunched as a modern, somewhat frequently updated enterprise. Prior to that (2005-2010), it was a depository of inside jokes that got updated bi-weekly. It has sometimes been a struggle to keep this thing current during those four years, but it’s been fun. Four years is a long time — when the site relaunched, Waka was the most #relevant rapper out, our intro post had Jersey Shore references, Amare Stoudemire played for the Suns and they were in the Western Conference Finals, and Monday Links happened on Saturdays — so we’d like to pat ourselves on the back a bit. We’d also like to thank you for visiting, talking shit in the comments, and any kind words or referrals throughout the years.

Hard to even remember what life was like before Future.

Anyway, if you want 25% off anything that’s left in the webstore, enter MEMORIALDAY at checkout. We on dat J. Crew shit fam. Discount does not apply to shipping and expires on Monday night ♥♥♥ xoxo ;) Enjoy the long weekend.
