Is there any way to start conjuring up royalty money from trivia questions? Do Jeopardy subjects get hit off with a modest check to reward them for providing content for the show through their existence? Probably not, but it is the second mention this year for us in a trivia atmosphere, so it’s kind of cool. (First one was here.)

Having this set-up in your back yard is a sure-fire way to guarantee that you will never have another dull moment for the remainder of your existence on this planet, and realistically speaking, it’s not even that elaborate compared to what people have in skateparks these days.

Do you make electro music for white kids that finally gave up on listening to Nas? You should commission Alex Olson for a video. Features the Gonz and Gigliotti. May cause the purchase of electric blue slim jeans and loss in hard-drive space from copious electro remix downloads.

Barely news, but there is quite literally nothing to skate at Hoboken Ledges anymore. Not that it actually matters, but this is being posted for nostalgia reasons more than anything. Or if you had some bizarre plan to go all the way to Hoboken in order to skate the fountain gap, which has been fenced off for some time, but now looks like it is fully to-be torn from the ground.

Did you know that “Kick Push” is the sixth-greatest Chicago rap song of all time?

Spotted a link to this Swedish montage on the incoming links to Quartersnacks. Even though the skating and spots are pretty cool (and Quartersnacks supports the majority of things related to Scandinavia), it deserves mention mostly because by watching it, you will learn that there are dudes out in Sweden making “Hard in the Paint” remixes. Not like the aforementioned electro remixes either, we’re talking Swedish rap here. Over Lex Luger beats… Yeah…

As the iPad and all that shit is (supposedly) changing print media, old-fashioned zines seem to be less on paper, and more digitized. Skate Jawn is an online skate zine that is laid out slideshow style, just as if it were to be paper. It features a bunch of content from people still keeping Philadelphia skateboarding alive, a Mike Maldonado appearance, and some solid photography.

That rail looks pretty mellow… Not like it might as well be vertical or anything…

Saving the best for last, and knowing that going a few months without some Quim Cardona content is never a good thing, you should check out the recently unearthed Quim and Mike Cardona 411 “Wheels of Fortune” segment. This guy is one of the most endlessly entertaining skateboarders ever, crazy style and all. It’s great to see he’s still killing it to this day. I’m sure that Manolo dude gets all sort of requests, but the world definitely needs a Quim mixtape from him. Both the above photo, and the clip were spotted at the Domestics blog, which maintained by the one and only, Jersey Dave. “Down with the hip-hop.”

The Art of Being the Worst

When the gangbangers would try to pull it, I was like, ‘Yo, I will fuck you up. And if you wanna call your cousin, call him. I’ll call me! I’ll call me right now.’ We were shooting TEC-9s when we were babies, so the whole gangsta image, that ain’t nothing.” – The Worst Dude Ever in Entertainment Weekly January 11, 2008

It must be pretty embarassing to be goofy-footed right now.

The Forgotten City has a really good new montage up right now.

Jeremy Henderson The Godfather of NYC skatebarding 1989 featuring old school Tompkins photos. (Via Official)

Static III New York premiere info. Projected date is the weekend of the 19th of October.

Were the Board Bangers not enough? Need more reasons to hate skateboarding? Here you go: “As rap icons Pharrell Williams and Lupe Fiasco present skateboarding as an integrated part of their personality and style, and with skateboarding itself already a pop cultural phenomenon, urban fans are now incorporating the fashion and lifestyle of skateboarding, experimenting with both skateboarding as a look and active sport.Totally dude. And who in their right mind refers to Lupelle Phiasco as an “icon”? Maybe if O’Shea Jackson were still in top form we wouldn’t have all these assholes running around in lime green Bape hoodies rapping about skateboarding.

Here’s some more idiots talking about nonsense.
