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.”

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

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.

Kevin Tierney in the New Skateboard Mag

October 2nd, 2013 | 11:59 am | Daily News | 14 Comments

One of two native New Yorkers on Zoo York’s skate program has a six-page interview in the latest issue of The Skateboard Mag (A.V.E. cover), thus graduating from past “check out” status. He discusses frequent usage of the word “brolick,” though does not address other oft-used catchphrases like “mad bodied” and “o.d.” Photographs by Brian Kelley and Sean Cronan at some atypical New York spots. Kevin hasn’t been down since day one, but he’s been down since the first “End of Summer” clip (probably the 7th one overall), which was pretty damn near day one. It’s good to see him getting some proper shine on a national platform.

We’ve been working on a re-edit of this dude’s past few years of footage, but that’s coming along slower than expected. In any event, watch his part in Solo Jazz (8:16 mark.) If you’ve burnt a figurative hole through that video from repeated viewings, his all-midtown segment in the 2010 Christmas clip has always been an office favorite.

Bronze ‘Solo Jazz’ is Now Online

August 26th, 2013 | 12:00 am | Daily News | 8 Comments

bronze solo jazz

Monday links are getting postponed until tomorrow because the Bronze video is online and it deserves its own post.

The most beloved New York City video franchise is back with its latest installment. Solo Jazz features many new names making their first-time, full-length appearance in a Bronze production: Dick Rizzo, Josh Wilson, Aaron Herrington and Jason Carroll. Though they may dilute the collective’s multicultural origins, their skateboard abilities only add to the excellence of this six (arguably eight) film franchise. Mainstays like Shawn Powers, Kevin Tierney, Derick Zeimkiewicz, Joseph Delgado, and Billy McFeely came through with wonderful sections, despite prior commitments that range from sponsorships to Polish espionage. Fan favorite, Phil Rodriguez, was sorely missed due to injury, and longtime followers of the franchise were surely shocked to learn that Solo Jazz has the unfortunate distinction of being the first Bronze video where Xavier Veal does not show up and at least 5050 some large handrail :(

Buy some Bronze tees and a hard copy of the video to support funding for the upcoming Billy Lynch documentary.

P.S. Johnny Wilson’s new project, Beef Patty, premiered the other night and it was really, really good. Loose Trucks Max has the ender. Hopefully, it makes its way online soon.

P.P.S. Colin Read’s new video, Tengu, premieres at the Sunshine Theater (Forsyth and Houston, where the Pretty Sweet premiere was) on Thursday, August 29th. Doors open at 8:30. Flyer here. So, there’s the potential of there being three great New York-based projects available in a week’s span. Looks like a solid end of the summer.
