Back in town. Heard of two new spots already! Some of these links are old obvs.

Lucas Puig and friends at MACBA. That little kid rips.

After causing quite a few cringes and “Ooohhh” reactions at the Static 4 premiere, Orchard put the painful teaser for their new video, Stone Soup, online.

“Based on his Bay Area legacy and the fact that my personal affinity for Marcus in my youth had gone as far as the habitual wearing of a Starter T-shirt inspired by the Trilogy VHS that was effectively super glued in my VCR, I was nervous just to be around him.” FYI: This should be mandatory weekly viewing.

Yoooooooooo Huf’s in-and-out Banks wall line

Ever wonder how skateboards are made? Here’s a brief mini doc on that very subject from the crew at Chapman Skateboards.

Jason Dill talks about pants and his Photosynthesis part. “That’s a bad frontside noseslide.” (Why didn’t they discuss the recording of this call though?)

NY Skateboarding filmed the entire Q & A with Chris Carter and Duane Pitre from the Memory Screen event that happened in Brooklyn last week.

Jenkem has an interview with Kevin Tierney and Transworld has an interview and mini clip with Rob Gonyon. Always found it weird when people (and there are A LOT of them, not just Rob) lose interest in the NBA when the Knicks aren’t involved, thus depriving themselves of viewing actually *good* basketball. It’s like listening to Wu-Tang and turning the song off after U-God’s verse ends. Anyway, new Bronze video!

Cooper Winterson has a cool new mini video with all the young guns. Citibike wallies!

Happy rap music! (“There seems to be an inordinate amount of exclamation points.”)

Hopps has a quick “Welcome to the Team” Insta vid for Cyrus Bennett and a mini clip with Brian Clarke from the Battery Park L Ledges.

The Canadian Vans team goes to Boston, New York and Philadelphia.

Raekwon and Ghostface Lieberman.

QS Sports Desk: Hyped that the Sports Desk’s new favorite non-German player over 6′ 3 won the Finals MVP. Lebron must really hate the state of Texas.

Start of Summer / Memorial Day Weekend 2014 Montage

May 23rd, 2014 | 3:25 am | Footage | 12 Comments

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.

K.T.B.D.K.O.N.Y. Remix

Though both had separate remix videos in the past year, here is a dual part of Kevin Tierney and Black Dave sourced from their King of New York footage. These dudes have come a long way since Trife*, the yellow Osiris hoody (never going to let that one go, it’s too iconic, sorry) and Globe flow days. Great to see them traveling about and still killing harder each and every year.

All footage is filmed in New York City limits by R.B. Umali.

#TBT (the second T is for Tuesday though…) Quote of the Day
Charles Lamb: “I heard you were getting flowed shoes from Globe, that’s cool.”
16-Year-Old Black Dave: “Yeah…Flobe.”

*Somewhat Related — Fellow Trife alumn, Billy McFeely, had a welcome part for Passport Skateboards go live today.

Been slow around here for 2014, guys. Sorry :(

Any form of new Rick Howard coverage is skateboarding’s equivalent of an Andre 3000 guest verse. (Speaking of which…)

Alltimers tees now available at Supreme.

Chapman, New York’s longest standing skateboard producers, relaunched their website. It features an awesome archive of past boards, ranging from old Zoo decks, Supreme art boards, the short lived Illuminati Skateboards, and others.

SkateZines.com is a new project from the crew behind SkateAndAnnoy.com, which puts itself to the seemingly impossible task of cataloging all available skate zines of today and info on where to obtain them.

The New York rooftop montage from the opening of Tengu is now available online.

This Japanese guy has a really good kickflip.

Frozen in Carbonite on how P.J. Ladd is like skateboarding’s Bill Belichick — but actually, maybe how he is more like skating’s J.D. Salinger. Or some shit.

A brief, new interview with Bobby Puleo about spot preferences, neighborhoods, and never listening to O.C’s second album despite being a big fan of his first. (Jewelz is obviously nowhere near as good as Word Life but has some moments.)

Another quick interview: NY Skateboarding chats with Kevin Tierney.

New video log from Johnny Wilson and friends. Tricks on Houston Street construction are apparently still trending.

A detailed (!) interview with Rob Brink that might shed some light on what it’s like to work in the skateboard industry outside of sales, or you know, being pro.

New Bolts Hardware 4-5-6 clip with Chris Hart.

Non skate-related link alert! This GQ story about how Mexican cartels get drugs across the United States border these days is wild.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Well, Paul George did a 360 windmill dunk in-game, but…um, Ramon Sessions (yeah) somehow dunked on Lebron the next day…

Quote of the Week
Observant Gentleman: “She looks way better in photos than in real life.”
T-Bird: “Well, she was the hottest girl at Westway on New Year’s Eve…when I showed up at 5 A.M.”

Kevin Tierney: The Mad Bodied Edit

kev

Late night Friday updates are turning more into a #thing. This one is for all the people out there getting mad bodied. Switch front shoves forever ♥♥♥

We chopped up Kevin Tierney’s Outdated part and his past three years’ worth of Zoo York footage alongside French (via one of very few notable Washington D.C. rap singles) and Mary J. The Mary part was mostly to pay tribute to the fact that two of the best instances of music supervision in skateboarding — Shiloh Greathouse in Trilogy and R.B. Umali’s believed-to-be lost post-9/11 montage that appeared on Conform.tv — were edited to her music. (If you have that R.B. montage on your computer, e-mail it over and we’ll send you a care package.) Otherwise, Kevin is mad nineties, so we kept the necessary vibez in tact. Shit is mad brolick. Oh, and check his Solo Jazz part for newer footage.
