“Yoooooooo, I heard she lives off the Kosciusko J.” “Yeah, I think I saw her at Five Leaves once.” ♥

Alien Workshop’s forgotten legacy: Ass shot 360 flips.

Y’all lucky Marcus McBride ain’t ten years younger!

The clearly Bronze-inspired Bev video is a fun watch. Troy’s part is sick, and Kasper’s ender at the 23rd Street hospital is something that footage can’t really do justice to.

Video blog #210 from the Beef Patty crew and NY Times #8 from the LurkNYC crew.

If you’ve seen one skateboarder’s “Day in the Life” clip, you’ve seen them all — EXCEPT only one has footage of Daniel Lebron skating flat in it.

Muckmouth tracked down Peter Bici, Ryan Hickey and even Henry Sanchez (who was the only glaring omission from the FTC book…he’s not very talkative here though) for their endless “Where are they now?” series.

New all-Southbank “Sission” clip from the PWBC. Not as good #musicsupervision as the last installment, but there are some rad Chewy Canon lines there.

Kennedy Cantrell’s part in the Dallas-based Burnt Out video solid. He goes over a moat mid-line. Full vid here. His part is at the 28-minute mark; haven’t had a chance to watch the full video yet. “They hatin’ on us ‘cuz we out here!”

Dylan Goldberger / James has a new part out for Coda Skateboards. Is that part he had in the Prizefighter video two years ago still online? Can’t find it anywhere.

The Tumblrverse scanned Big Brother’s 1999 article about fashion and skateboarding, which explains the origin of the Bob shirt, among other things. To all you other skateboard media institutions: Dibs on a 2014 remake.

The Spectacle Theater (S 3rd Street in Williamsburg) will be playing Memory Screen on June 10th at 8 P.M. Chris Carter and Duane Pitre will be in attendance, and will hold a Q & A after the video.

This is what came of the Murray Hill spot mentioned in a post from a few weeks ago.

They’re making a documentary about Kids. On one hand, you’d like to wish that everyone would stop mining one of the most easily mineable relics of nineties nostalgia and focus elsewhere (Huf Epicly Later’d!), but on the other hand, last year’s Narratively article about the making of the film was better than the movie itself. A 90-minute version of that would probably be awesome.

New York is still sketchy if you look hard enough.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kawhi Leonard is the Sports Desk’s new favorite non-German player over 6’3. Spurs in six?

R.I.P. to the S 2nd and Havemeyer Social Club.

The new Twitter sucks. Who’s going to Future tomorrow?

Even though everyone knows truth about hot dogs, we must bid a farewell to the 8th Street Gray’s Papaya. See, before the dollar slice boom of the late 2000s (pre-Mamani’s, Pre-Two Bros.), the familiar dilemma of skateboarding all day and trying to eat for under $4 was far more difficult. It was perfectly reasonable to skate crosstown from Tompkins to get the special at Gray’s. The kids have it way easier these days.

Less pertinent to skateboarding, but still a bummer: Miladys closed on Sunday :(

Jake Johnson pontificates on various issues over at the Cafe Creme blog.

If you’ve ever been to House of Vans, you know how absolutely insane this is.

Yet another recent Gino footage compilation. And here’s Boil the Ocean on “Gino’s most productive 14 months ever” and other developments from late 2013.

Polar has a Aaron Herrington mini clip on their Instagram.

The issue has been out for a few weeks, but Shawn Powers has a photo and blurb about him getting interrogated at Heathrow for six hours in the January Transworld. Also, the mostly in New York Dylan Reider interview photos are nuts. Kickflip up Fish Gap, front heel Bond Street, etc.

Kennedy Cantrell has a new part out for Iron Claw. Includes a Phil Rodriguez cameo. Is he the first one to hit all three of the five sets at the 27th Street crackhead park?

The raw footage of the Dane Burman Philly 5050 is wild.

Some Austin transplants skate in Bushwick on what looks like Puerto Rican Day, among other things. You have to admire a line at the new worst spot in New York A.K.A. Kent Step that doesn’t utilize the steps, too.

A video interview with Danny Supa, one of history’s greatest backside flippers. He talks about Dead End, Tree Fort, etc.

Here’s a brief HD bro cam edit from Johnny Wilson and friends.

Some throwaway footage from the Spam video. (Full video here.)

“Everyone that’s attractive seems to have some dolt boyfriend, or is literally made out of garbage.”

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kris Humphries had a bad week.

Quote of the Week
Beer Drinker #1: “What’s up with these Coors Lights?”
Beer Drinker #2: “The ones on the right I just put in, the ones on the left are cold.”
Beer Drinker #1: “You think I don’t know how to look at the blue strip, motherfucker?”

It’s supposed to go all the way up to 51 degrees today! Have a good one.

Iron Claw Skates: Faux One One VM #1

While we lament the demise of Skate.ly’s 411 collection and impatiently wait for Skateboarder‘s archive to fill out, the Iron Claw crew took it upon themselves to begin producing new issues of the seminal video magazine.

Contrary to the opinions of often-wrong message board pundits everywhere, participants in Slap‘s 2012 “One in a Million” festivities did not have their lives ruined. Kennedy Cantrell filmed a sick part and Matt Militano even makes an appearance in the “Chaos” section (though he doesn’t ride for the Claw like Kennedy does) for Life Ruiner Lurker Lou’s company, so there *IS* in fact light at the end of the tunnel for O.I.A.M. 2012 participants. Otherwise, Fred Gall is the east coast Lance Mountain, Cyrus Bennett comes through with his second solid part in a few months (hopefully the first one makes it online sometime soon), Phil Rodriguez makes his first non-Flipmode/Bronze appearance, Lou accurately tour guides you through the Williamsburg Bridge monument so you have no reason to ever go there again, and has his first full part in several years. Solid all-around video and a cool concept for tweens and nostalgists alike. Check out their site at IronClawSkates.com.
