First Post of 2018

It’s cold out there. First posts of…2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

Here’s a gentle reminder to worry a bit less about ascending in skateboarding’s paid elite this year, and to save some money to travel with your friends to some far-off skate spots and simply have a good time ♥

Pretty stoked to start 2018 off with a whole roster of local videos…

It got uploaded just after last weeks links post went live, but Goodily is a new full-length from Diego Garcia featuring parts from Solomon, Yaje, Pat Hoblin, Jason Byoun, and basically all the people who skate more than you do.

Banister” is the new ten-minute mini vid from Gang Corp, to which they already uploaded a a half-hour raw files clip of outtakes and kick-outs.

Angel Fonseca and the Bronx crew have a new one called “Money Orders Bill$ 2.”

Lurkers 3 is back online after a brief hiatus as well.

Here’s a fun new 2017 Bobby De Keyzer Instagram compilation.

Max Hull with some photos of a trip to a 17-degree pool party.

Krooked has a trip to New York raw clip over on the Thrasher site, from what looks like when they were filming for LSD.

Memory Screen compiled what is essentially a “best of pre-2010s skateboarding history” montage to the long version of 411‘s theme song to get you hyped. Leaving out S.J’s front 180 switch crook at J. Kwon is a tad bit preposterous though.

Still a good bit of end-of-the-year stuff floating around on the slim chance that you didn’t have enough of 2017…

Boil the Ocean with more 2017 video part life, and Cafe Creme Blog also has its own list of 2017’s best video parts.

Theories has a ten list for 2017’s “Underground S.O.T.Y.”

Ripped Laces runs down the ten best skate shoes of 2017 (“the bootie, if you’re not used to it, takes a few hours to adjust to”), and the 25 best board graphics of 2017.

It’s 2 degrees outside for the foreseeable future, but we’re getting Sremmlife 3 this month to give us strength. At least you’re not in Montreal.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Porzingis is obviously close (no playoffs…yet, maybe 2025), but Tyson Chandler is still the best Knicks player of the current millennium. Happy to see him up to his old tricks in a warmer climate.

mariah subway

“Yoooooooo, I heard she lives off the Kosciusko J.” “Yeah, I think I saw her at Five Leaves once.” ♥

Alien Workshop’s forgotten legacy: Ass shot 360 flips.

Y’all lucky Marcus McBride ain’t ten years younger!

The clearly Bronze-inspired Bev video is a fun watch. Troy’s part is sick, and Kasper’s ender at the 23rd Street hospital is something that footage can’t really do justice to.

Video blog #210 from the Beef Patty crew and NY Times #8 from the LurkNYC crew.

If you’ve seen one skateboarder’s “Day in the Life” clip, you’ve seen them all — EXCEPT only one has footage of Daniel Lebron skating flat in it.

Muckmouth tracked down Peter Bici, Ryan Hickey and even Henry Sanchez (who was the only glaring omission from the FTC book…he’s not very talkative here though) for their endless “Where are they now?” series.

New all-Southbank “Sission” clip from the PWBC. Not as good #musicsupervision as the last installment, but there are some rad Chewy Canon lines there.

Kennedy Cantrell’s part in the Dallas-based Burnt Out video solid. He goes over a moat mid-line. Full vid here. His part is at the 28-minute mark; haven’t had a chance to watch the full video yet. “They hatin’ on us ‘cuz we out here!”

Dylan Goldberger / James has a new part out for Coda Skateboards. Is that part he had in the Prizefighter video two years ago still online? Can’t find it anywhere.

The Tumblrverse scanned Big Brother’s 1999 article about fashion and skateboarding, which explains the origin of the Bob shirt, among other things. To all you other skateboard media institutions: Dibs on a 2014 remake.

The Spectacle Theater (S 3rd Street in Williamsburg) will be playing Memory Screen on June 10th at 8 P.M. Chris Carter and Duane Pitre will be in attendance, and will hold a Q & A after the video.

This is what came of the Murray Hill spot mentioned in a post from a few weeks ago.

They’re making a documentary about Kids. On one hand, you’d like to wish that everyone would stop mining one of the most easily mineable relics of nineties nostalgia and focus elsewhere (Huf Epicly Later’d!), but on the other hand, last year’s Narratively article about the making of the film was better than the movie itself. A 90-minute version of that would probably be awesome.

New York is still sketchy if you look hard enough.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kawhi Leonard is the Sports Desk’s new favorite non-German player over 6’3. Spurs in six?

R.I.P. to the S 2nd and Havemeyer Social Club.

The new Twitter sucks. Who’s going to Future tomorrow?
