Aaron Szott — Front Shove in front of Stuyvesant Grocery (R.I.P.) The photo is stolen from the latest batch of random Jonathan Mehring photos over on the Skateboarder site.

In today’s hyper-opinionated skateboard climate, there will always be someone there to say negative things about any skater, besides like, Mike Carroll.

Frozen in Carbonite has the definitive guide to the skate parts and songs of summer 2012. In all seriousness, it’s the best piece of pop culture and skateboard writing of the year.

The Jeezy and Officer Ross beef fired up this weekend. BET Awards = Source Awards of the new generation, but you already knew that. “I created my lane. No one can ever run my lane because it’s mine. I’m the Michael Jackson of my lane. And you know nobody was as great as Michael. I love Prince but he’s not Michael.” #Snow.
