Today is Washington’s birthday, but the queen’s 30th is tomorrow! We are going to stick to a Rihanna’s 30th resolution of no more late Monday Links posts! Ain’t none of us perfect, I hope it was worth it.

Zered Bassett’s seafood tower cruiser will be available on Alltimers.com tomorrow. They shot a quick Insta commercial for it, which you can watch here.

Jesse Alba has a chill new iPhone edit up with footage from the past couple months.

30 seconds new Gino footage from the Astoria Park and Roslyn Banks.

QS-office fave, Dave Caddo, has been been posting some outer borough gems on IG.

Somehow missed this one when it went live just over a week ago: Nick Michel, the dude who boardslid the double-rail across from the mini double-sets at Battery Park (#QSTOP10, a few weeks back) has an amazing new part up on Thrasher, which features the VX angle of trick in question plus a trick at the ride-on rail spot that’s not on the ride-on rail! Battery Park MVP 2k18.

Didn’t even know this was in the works — TWS made a documentary about Skateboarder magazine, which was the first ever skate mag. The “trailer” basically plays like the first seven minutes of the doc itself.

Muska tells the story of when him at Stevie Williams hung out with Michael Jackson at Neverland. (“C’mon man, this kid is ten years old — he don’t remember Thriller. ‘the fuck you wanna meet Michael Jackson for?”)

Mark Gonzales skates Owl’s Head Park with R.B. Umali for a Pro-Tec commercial.

Ten Person Crew Unanimously Disagrees on Meet-Up Spot.” Forever #mood.

Two more Stop Fakin’ 3 parts: D.C. Streets montage + Kevin Augustine’s part.

Old clip, new upload…Orchard’s day trip around New York for 2014’s All City Showdown to a Steely Dan classic.

Boil the Ocean has a weird one about skaters investing in things and animal enslavement. 2018 is odd.

The Bunt is back with a new Chima episode.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: J.R. Smith with a beautiful full-court…pass?

Quartersnacks turns eleven years old today. Thank you everyone for the love throughout this now decade-plus. We’ll try not to blow it, at least for a few more years ;) Quotes over the Years postsPart 1, part 2, part 3.

Two posts related to yesterday: Remember and TWS on 9/11 from February 2002.

Call Me 917 has been teasing quick bits of footage from a recent midwest trip for their upcoming collaboration with Nike SB: one here and one there. The full thing supposed to drop on September 17th. And if you’re a person afraid of holding objects with printed words on them, someone on Slap scanned the Thrasher article about the trip.

“Do you like skating in New York?” “Not really.” #respect, me either tbh. Andrew Allen interviewed Aidan Mackey for Heaps Chat.

Byrdgang 2, the new one from the QS office’s favorite adolescent skateboard crew, is now live to remind all of us what skateboarding here in high school felt like.

Uploaded Max’s Sure part to YouTube just because.

It’s like a Goldfish reunion! Mike Carroll at the Santa Monica Courthouse.

Pretty sure this part is actually from the new Heroin video (could be wrong), but this Nick Michel “Losing Come Up Tour” part has a heavy focus on New York-based rock spots, including the blunt pop-in at Battery Park City from last week’s #QSTOP10.

Varial flip up, varial flip on flat, and varial flip down is is one of the more subversive moments for recent line choreography at the Chase two-up-five-down steps.

With early-2000s nostalgia still running high a la low-def noseslide tricks and the ressurection of the Pace Ledge, maybe kickflip shiftys are due for a comeback?

Switch back lip down Blubba and thirty more seconds of new Yaje footage.

Free Skate Mag interviewed Aesthetics Ryde or Die alumnus, Joey Pepper.

Who ever thought product description beef could be so interesting?

It feels like there have been five of these but oh well. Another Huf T.F. West jam clip.

Damn, Future is still pissed at Ciara? Has anyone ever rhymed “Soho” with something besides “Manolo?” Also, isn’t Ape Shit like a year late?
