Proper Shit Out

Keeping along with last week’s 76ers theme…

Been a slow start to the year out there. Pretty excited for this heatwave though.

Steve Mastorelli (the guy who made The Meadowlands last year) has a sick new edit up, which screened before the video at the NJ Skateshop Stop Fakin’ 3 premiere. Features a bunch of familiar north Jersey faces and spots.

One of the standout ex-pat / visitor in New York vids in recent memory — “Dice of Life: Twenty Eighteen.” Huge array of spots (shout out to everyone venturing out to the still-good spots that weathered locals otherwise gave up on), really sick skating (the line at the Escape From New York cathedral on Amsterdam is fucked + the varial heel at Southbridge Towers is sick too), and one of the best No Limit songs to start it off, though they only used the worst verse on it :)

Coda has new montage for 2018, with some wild moves, especially in the first part, which seemed like it was about to be filmed exclusively under the J train.

Kinda an interview with Aidan Mackey + photos from the roof of the former QS office.

R.B. Umali mashed up a bunch of his old footage to create a “15 Years of New York skateboarding” montage that covers 1995 to 2010, with the first ever (?) regular-motion footage of the best kickflip ever done.

#comebackwatch2018: 1) Never been the biggest fan, but the DC Lynx is *officially* coming back into their line. 2) Gino Iannucci’s onetime Long Island Skateshop, Poet’s, is being relaunched as a standalone brand. 3) The sneaker nerds were already up on this, but Nike’s Grandstand 2, which you might remember Reese Forbes wearing in his first-ever SB ad, is set to re-release sometime soon. (It’s not an SB model though.)

“I never thought I’d send DVDs to Iraq.” Solo has an an interview with Nick from The Palomino, the internet’s best skate shop ♥ You can find QS on there too obvs ;)

An ocean away and old, but new, but a #spotcheck nonetheless.

Ten years since Static 3 with Soy Panday and Danny Renaud.

“The backside 360 with that gentle and (sarcastically?) smug roll away off the ledge is the first trick I think of when I think of Bobby Puleo in Static II.” And on that same note…“musing on” Puleo’s part in the second Static video.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Russ being Russ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Shout out to all the stable geniuses out there ;)

The Cooper Union bank spot is a wrap.

“Tied Together” montage featuring Ty Lyons, Kevin Tierney, Black Dave, and a few others. Most importantly, it contains hood legend Geo Moya, so its worth going through all the footage of people talking and running through London with matching tee shirts. Next time you rip a pair of laces mid-session, drop the extra $4 and spend it on a good cause.

What happens when you breed an iPhone 4 with a VX1000 via RB Umali.

Danny Weiss AKA Sweiss once said that “The Philosopher is literally one of my favorite people in New York City.” After watching this clip, it’s unlikely anyone could disagree.

Here’s some more circa-2008 footage of Loose Trucks Max. If you missed the initial post, you can catch up over here.

Dylan James is sick. Jersey Dave is backing him.

Everyone’s seen it, but the Billy-Rohan-goes-to-Iraq story is the skateboard headliner of the summer. “Take the hottest day in New York and put a blow dryer to your face – that’s how it feels in Iraq.”

Even though it’s out of our jurisdiction, everyone should check out Grey Skate Mag over in the UK. I’ve never really been up on Euro skate mags, and the only European skate institutions we tend to be closely familiar with on this side of the pond are PWBC and Cliché, but these dudes have some great photos, especially the black and white ones in the Jensen interview, so they’re well on their way to joining the ranks.

If you didn’t grow up listening to Hot 97 in the late-90s / early-2000s, you need to get over to Cipha Sounds’ list of the top 75 Greatest Tunnel Bangers. Pretty much the best rap music in existence, aside from maybe UGK and Raekwon’s first album.

Quote of the Week: – Young Geographically Astute New York Female: “Where do you live, anyway?
– T-Bird: “145th and Eighth.
– Young Geographically Astute New York Female: “Really? I thought Manhattan, like, ended at 125th.

You heard it here first.

Some information, photos, and teaser clips on the Nike SB video, Nothing But the Truth, set to release this fall.

Static III set to release “around” the weekend of September 21st.

While on the topic of videos, what happened to that New York skateboarding documentary that I linked to a trailer of around February?

Security guards are so cool.

The Wall Street Journal found some relevance in the topic of blank boards vs. company logo boards. Blank decks are evidently “killing the industry.” Sick.
