Check the Stats, Check the Racks

Normally, at this time of year, all we would have to show for the past three-and-a-half months is a few trips to Below the Bridge, one trip to Drop-In, several nights of pretending to skate at House of Vans, an elaborate Geo Moya blooper reel, and a clinched playoff spot at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Given 2012’s generosity in climate (the party ends for a bit tomorrow, by the way), we actually had a few nights in midtown, several trips to Flushing (one resulting in an E.J. anxiety attack due to being too far from the T.F.), mad footage of the Tompkins cones, and a wasted bottle of champagne. The bottom-half playoff seeding is still the same.

Contributing filmers: Andre Page & Richard Quintero.

Features: Josh Velez, Ritch Swain, Tyler Tufty, Sweet Waste, Andre Page, Billy McFeely, Pad Dowd, Vladimir Kirilenko, Emilio Cuilan, Negative, Brandon Bramhall, Ty Lyons, Brian Kelley, Rodney Sterling, Rob Gonyon, Jack Sabback, Roctakon, Galen DeKemper, Haffa, Carmelo Anthony, Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith.

Mooney was locked up while this clip was being filmed, hence his lack of footage.

Trying to Buy a Lamborghini This Summer

How do you feel about Thando’s homage to you?
Is it a homage to me, or a homage to looking good?

Unlike previous summers, when we’d weave up and down the Northeast and the possibilities for new bad spots and whimsical adventures seemed endless, we’ve been stuck here for the past few months. Partially due to increased unemployment, but largely because of the overall expenses that coincide with the one sketchy place you’ve been renting cars from all these years catching on to the fact that every time they rent to you, they get the car back with an extra 800 miles on the odometer. How exactly the acquisition of a Lamborghini will go is anyone’s guess, but it would widely increase productivity in terms of skateboarding outside of this city, which as you know, is a hotbed of doing nothing in this July/August period of the year. Maybe a Paypal donate button on the side with a long dissertation as to why its a wise investment. Maybe rig a way to make it tax-deductable. Do you think making songs where you copiously repeat that you’re trying to purchase something actually yields an acquisition?

Below is a new clip that features Dennis Feliciano, Isak Buan, Matthew Mooney, Ty Lyons, Josh Velez, Watermelon Alex, Torey Goodall, Aaron Szott, Negative, Rich, Grandpa, Galen Dekemper.

Happy February. Doesn’t it feel like New Year’s was two days ago? Oh, did you see the seventy-percent chance of snow for the weekend forecast? Yeah man.

In light of our just slightly-below-freezing but enhanced by wind-chill temperature, along with the impending snow showers, what better way to celebrate than a Hawaiian themed skate clip that was filmed when it was at least eighty-degrees outside?

Put together by Justin White, featuring Scotty Moore, Taji Ameen, Brendan Grandstrand, Negative, Luke Malaney, Jersey Dave, Eby, Jeremy Scott, Mr. Wilson, Isak Buan anddddd.. Justin White.

Chain shining hard, it just gave my neck a tan. It has been over a year, and that song still hasn’t got old.
