Happy birthday Dre! Thanks for feeding every person we know for 10+ years.

Was wrong about the Muska Epicly Later’d airing last week, but it’s definitely airing this week, and the Tom Cruise coke movie is sick.

Free has a new part from 2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y, Leo Gutman. The guy’s eye for spots remains unparalleled after all these years.

“Chewy threw an ironing board at Lucien over this shit. The skate house, the skate house, the skate house—we’ve all been there.” TWS put their Palace in New York article online, which includes an interview with Jamal Smith, who doesn’t have any photos in it, but is the star of a pretty sick faux 411 “Wheels of Fortune” section.

“I think the reason nobody wanted to show us around was he fact we might have been a bit of an embarassment. Actually, that’s certainly the reason.” And even though it’s from last year, The Skateboarder’s Journal posted their Passport in New York article, with words from Callum Paul.

Summer’s over ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

YoooOOOooos Antonio’s Numbers part is insane, but you knew that already.

It’s amazing that people need to point out that they dislike front feeble laser flip outs in 2017 like it’s a kickflip backside tailslide or some shit. The Bunt’s new season kicked off last week, with what’s probably the most Canadian episode they’ve ever had.

F.A. uploaded a 46-minute compilation of B-sides and raw footage — some of which is unseen, some of which you’ll definitely recognize from past edits. Someone also turned all the episodes of “Atlantic Drift” into one single-stream 34-minute reel.

Theories posted Luke Malaney’s Traffic Look Left part, along with a quick interview. Can you believe Keith came through with a guest trick?!

“We’re utilitarian people. That’s what the fuck we do.” Village Psychic has an interview with Jake Phelps about the cost of living in the only place with higher rent than New York: San Francisco. (Free idea: You guys should do a story about skateboarders living with random Chinese families in New York.)

Boil the Ocean with an early weigh-in on 2017’s S.O.T.Y. race, but is there 1) a single person who follows skating that doesn’t think it should unequivocally be Tiago, and 2) if not, what possible reason could you have?

Some Minnesotans (?) enjoy some warm sun rays in New York with a vintage camera.

Supreme has the new Alltimers decks available, in addition to a restock of Snackman tees, which are sold out online and won’t be back on for quite some time. (New ash grey colorway!) Labor still has the Jesus piece deck available online, though you’re out of luck if you’re trying to skate an Oscar winner.

Perhaps the greatest “lost clip” to ever surface online: Mike Carroll doing the most exemplary kickflip and frontside flip possible at the Brooklyn Banks in 1995.

Iron Claw Skates in Puerto Rico. What’d we tell you?

Zered is having a part in the new Transworld video. He’s been on a tear lately. Here’s another clip of him at the newly cellar door-ified House of Vans too. (“Have you seen the new Transworld video, Outlines?” = the 2010s’ “Have you seen the new Transworld video, Subtitles?” for the dyslexics.)

Speaking of Transworld…if any of the editors read this website, let it be known that it’s kinda sorta frustrating when you guys give Jake Johnson second billing in a clip that he has one trick in :( Wes Kremer footage is always nice though. Since the trick in question is a no comply, all aspiring no compliers should consult the GX1000 Vine for further examples of proper form on loop.

You’d think people would run out of new ways to skate Love Park, but the ollie-ollie-ollie nose manual line that Nik Stain does is cool. The hour-long Skate Jawn video is online in full, by the way.

NY Skateboarding has a new interview with Steven Cales.

Kent Uyehara talks about the original FTC shop team, and the whereabouts of Drake Jones, a topic that gets brought up all the time despite Chrome Ball having done the research on that one years ago. (Only omission: “Do you ever get frustrated with the meteoric rise of a prominent Canadian with the same name?”)

#TBT on a Monday: Traffic reboot teamrider, Luke Malaney’s part from Chapman’s Short Ends video (2007). Features guest tricks of the #emergingblackcelebity before he emerged as a celebrity.

Spot Updates: This could’ve happened anywhere from six days ago to six months ago, but the building moved a planter in front of the rail gap at CBS.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: “What are you up to tonight?” “Is Steph Curry on TV tonight?” Also, in likely the only Knicks news to get reported here throughout the past season…some dude in Staten Island got arrested for threatening James Dolan.

Uncle Edson.

Wondering what the sequel to the RiRi cruiser is going to be? An Oscar winner!

Dime runs down the five greatest tricks that never happened. Still amazed that a human dumb enough to try a thirteen-flat-whatever in the rain exists (unless he was on PCP or something, then that would explain everything.)

Expedition One has a sick Zered mini clip on their Instagram. Apparently, he’s having a part in the next Transworld video too.

You know mother nature has a sense of humor when there’s not much snow on the ground and warm enough to go street skating in Alaska right now.

Making customers do kickflips to purchase Tiffany Dunks seems a bit extra (they skate good though…), but did any of those shops put together a compilation of botched attempts? There has to be some comedy in there. BTW, Ian Reid still holds the title for most controversial video in the sneaker collector community.

Standalone standouts from The Brodies: Leo Gutman and Aaron Herrington.

ICYMI: New NJ Scum montage. Wow wow wow fakie hardflip.

Best part in Rich Mahogany title-holder, Luke Malaney’s part in Nevermind.

This really pushes the idea of a “skate house” to a new level. “Skate colony” maybe?

Tony Miorana x Tony Montana re-edit via the homie Canadian Connor.

Round 548974979 of Death Video throwaway footage. Is that wooden spot in Long Island City completely knobbed yet? Or just the two block ledges?

New bro cam video out of New Jersey by Connor Peterson.

So this is what happens in the Ivy League?

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Clippers-Sixers turned into an And1 mixtape. The Sixers might suck right now, but how sad is it that between Michael Carter-Williams, draft picks and cap space, they have a much brighter next couple of seasons than the Knicks do? Also, God bless Inside the NBA.

Quote of the Week
Store Runner: “You want anything from the store?”
Kadeem: “Yeah, can you get me an O.J?”
Store Runner: “Sure, what brand?”
Kadeem: “You know, orange juice.”

Lil’ Boosie gets out on Thursday. Obviously he has kids and stuff, but is it unreasonable to expect a Writing on the Wall-esque fresh-out-of-jail opus from him?

Fall Flip Cam / iPhone Wave

Andre Page with a highly expressive ollie at Washington Square Park. I wonder what song he had in the iPod for this one? Photo by Emilio Cuilan. Click image to enlarge.

Hopefully, you came up on a $65 Flip Cam last month, and have been stacking clips with it ever since. The following is a clip filmed with that very same device, and its slightly more ubiquitous cell phone counterpart, the iPhone. The clip features the first public documentation of Ty’s critically acclaimed “white person” Halloween costume. (“What are you supposed to be?” “White.”) Whether or not it surpasses Drake and garbage, the other two crowd favorites from Halloween 2011, is your call. Edited to one of the best posse songs in recent history. Sorry French, we didn’t have enough footage to include your verse.

Features Jake Johnson, Alexander Mosley, Lil’ Steven, Andre Page, Emilio Cuilan, Brendan, Luke Malaney, Ritch Swain, Brian Kelley, Ty Lyons, Sweet Waste, Will Carpio, Ben Nazario, Alex, Dario Phillips, Torey Goodall (yes, that footage is from before that spot was “occupied”), and Josh Velez. Filmed by Josh Velez.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. We’ll be back on Friday.

That Summer Flip Cam Wave

Threw together a bunch of cutty Flip Cam and iPhone clips that have been laying around since the end of winter, plus footage of some more recent outings. 2011 might have the worst (best?) ratio of rap songs to non-rap songs as far as music selection in Quartersnacks clips goes. So far, there has been one clip (not counting Justin White’s contribution) where the soundtrack hasn’t dealt with cars, making it rain, pimping, ice cream, inquires to “how ya do that there,” or RACKS. We’ll try our best to acknowledge another genre of music to edit skate clips to in the near future. Have a good weekend.

Features Black Dave, Ritch Swain, Ben Nazario, Corey Rubin, Shawn Powers, Kevin Tierney, Billy Mcfeely, Dennis Feliciano, Galen Dekemper, Alex, AJ, Billy Rohan, Josh Velez, and Luke Malaney. Filmed by Josh Velez. Shout out to all the bums with no footage in this.
