Most steez clip of the day, couple days, week, month? — Juan Saavedra, Santiago Sasson and Karl Salah in Italy for “Futur Timeline 03.”

Didn’t want this minute-long clip of the Supreme crew in London to end. Also off to a great start on compiling our top 25 (100?) Ride Channel headlines of 2016.

Minute-long parts — the new…3-minute long part?! Pint Sized: Aaron Herrington.

The video for the Humidity x Butter Goods collaboration is the first time I’ve been excited to hear a nineties New York rap song in a skate video in who knows how long.

The Bunt’s season finale is with Brandon Biebel. Can’t wait for the third season :)

“And there’s also another strategy where we look at spaces that could potentially be skate spots but they lack some functionality, and then we add that. So we’ve added granite blocks and granite benches to squares that could use the life that skateboarding brings. By doing that we create these sort of meet-up hubs and social spots that really help unite neighbourhoods and give kids somewhere to go.” — An interview with Gustav Eden, a man employed by the city of Malmö to improve its public spaces for skateboarders, reminding everyone to concentrate all life efforts on securing at least part-time residence in a Scandinavian country.

Ian Reid runs down his top five moments from the notorious Ian Reid’s Video.

Andrew Reynolds has an interview in Rolling Stone.

Knowing Mixtape dropped at the exact moment the world needed it to heal its wounds.

“…it clicks in the spirit of Keenan Milton and Gino Iannucci, Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen, Brian Wenning and Anthony Pappalardo, Mike Carroll and Rick Howard.” — Boil the Ocean on Bobby and Hjalte’s “Looks Ok to Me” part. Is it too late to modify the S.O.T.Y. rules to enable joint winners?

Village Psychic behind the new Barcelona-based Be Magazine.

“Hajji’s was crowded on a recent Friday night. Femi Agunbiade, 24, had driven an hour from Maplewood, N.J., with his girlfriend to get a chopped cheese.” What

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Oooof. Ibaka game winner against the Thunder.

Quote of the Week: “They had Papoose perform right before Christmas when I was going to BMCC.” — Greg Huff

Mr. 3-2 was killed in Houston last week. 3-2 held a special place in my heart thanks to a handful of incredible features on UGK songs, and for creating much amazing, smooth, oozy rap music that Houstonians have always been better at making than anyone else. Rest in Peace.

New QS spring merch is now available at Supreme & Labor. Available at other U.S. stores this week. Japan also this week. Europe and Canada next week. Available online next Monday, May 9th at midnight. It’s cool.

Torey Goodall’s impact on the world of skateboard fashion continues to emerge. Ripped Laces interviewed Vintage Sponsor, the stylist behind John Shanhan’s DGK part and archiver of nineties Polo gear and old skate tees alike.

Always down for any tribute to the pre-YouTube wild west days of the skateboard internet. Village Psychic did a post about the post-Yeah Right! Quicktime tour videos that would run on Crailtap in the early 2000s.

This line is peak early 2000s Lordz nostalgia :) #NHNScomeback

Out of all the interviews I’ve done for this website or elsewhere — and this should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with his reputation for being the happiest human alive — Karl Watson is on the shortlist for most enjoyable to talk to. (I accidentally deleted the audio before transcribing and he was even down to do it again.) His hour-plus episode on the Shetler Podcast was a joy to listen to.

There’s a new Kalis part to wrap up his “Life on Video” series. Happy 40th KLS-1.

Some chill footage of Hjalte and the Blobys in this Las Palmas trip clip that Tombo just posted. There’s an $800 ticket if you leave Thursday

The first five 411s, compressed into nine minutes.

“Are Eric Koston’s indigo-tinted industry maneuvers helping to usher in a post-board sponsor era in which deck makers become loose, image-oriented collectives for pros and various bros to shack up for a time, under some ‘gest’ or similar rubric, before drifting apart?” — Boil the Ocean on Prince’s legacy in skateboarding, and the prospect of increased fluidity in board sponsor changes.

Rhythm is a dancer and here’s a compilation of board-snap rollaways.

Cooper Park may soon have a 10 P.M. curfew. Was it even lit up to begin with?

New video from the crew behind Tengu is on the way. Daniel Kim’s new hair is great.

An interview with Big Brother‘s Rick Kosick & Menace’s Fabian Alomar. (~35:00 mark.)

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: They just won’t let Jeremy Lin alone…Everyone please cross your fingers for a Heat-Cavs Eastern Conference Finals :)

Quote of the Week: “Would any of you be interested in buying a l*ngb**rd?” — Our Montreal Airbnb Host

^^^The only Prince homage in rap that really matters.

Party at 8

QS x DGK coming next month.

Cee Lo, the new one from LurkNYC, is great. Sick spots (probably the most astute prop grate finders working today), a soundtrack sure to please anyone who’s ever left a “you guys actually like this?”-comment on a Quartersnacks YouTube video, and an awesome ender part from John Shanahan (above) that will be on repeat for the foreseeable future. Fakie bigspin manny line was a real crowd pleaser :) Also, those security guards at the gold rail on 52nd Street might be the worst in the city…

New interview with Gino Iannucci in Italy’s Brief Glance mag. Starts on page 37.

The 550 Wheels promo begins with what’s basically a full, new Ron Deily part. (There’s a junk spot successor already?) Also has a Kevin Taylor appearance.

Max Palmer Presents: A new barrier at the Bushwick Blue Park.

An iPhone video from Jesse Alba, a Blackberry (yeah) clip from E.J., and a handycam video from Rob Harris.

John Valenti’s Local Express video is online in full. New full Caddo part.

“What advice can you give someone wanting to work in skateboarding?” “Whatever it is you want to do, just start doing it on your own. Shoot photos how you want, film how you want, put up your videos, reach out to the companies you want to work for…” Skateboard Story has a solid interview with Transworld‘s Blair Alley about still working at one of the remaining print publications left in skateboarding.

SMLTalk chronicles the stylistic evolution of hip-hop white guy icon, Robert Welsh.

Matt Nordess at the top-10 worst ledge and less bad places for Labor Skateshop.

QS faves, Budapest’s Rios Crew, goes to Croatia.

An interview with everyone’s fave Scandinavian beast, Hjalte Halberg.

Couple quick New York clips in Flo Mirtain’s new part for Jenkem.

Is riding over the full length of a car a NBD?

The odds being stacked against company comebacks never stops anyone from trying.

A skate tour through Alaska with Brock, Worrest, etc.

It’ll always be Pigeon Shit Double-Set to me ;)

Turn audio on for maximum effect.

If you ask 100 people to give you the twenty best Young Thug songs of 2015, you’re going to get 100 different mixes. Provided you don’t want to sift through five thousand songs, Hotbox Social did a pretty good job of condensing his past twelve months into ninety minutes of music — though you’d probably wanna include “Dome,” “Numbers,” “Bang Bang,” “Pacifier” — actually no, it’s sorta impossible…

QS Sports Desk: Going to switch it up a bit this week and link an article. I thoroughly enjoyed this new interview with Real Sports‘ Bryant Gumbel. His whole “as you age, you care less and less about what a bunch of 20-year-olds are doing”-thing is something I often try to remind [30+] people pontificating on the [non-existent] “death” of skate videos. Sk8 videos r 4 the youths man.

Quote of the Week: “He showed up to the skatepark in a cashmere poncho.” — Dom Travis

Still some beanies [and assorted sizes of fall goods] left in the webstore, even though it’s going to be seventy degrees on Christmas Eve
