Stance Socks’ newest teamrider.

We will temporarily be closing up our webstore this week. There are mostly mediums left with a few white larges and XLs. Cruisers are almost gone too. It will be back in the spring with new gear. Thanks to anyone who supported and bought anything.

A Visual Sound sat down with Brad Rosado to talk about Parental Advisory’s all hip-hop music supervision. It was actually surprising that Stevie didn’t skate to Meek Mill, considering that even in the Roc-A-Fella era, Philly didn’t have a top-tier “relevant” rapper to lay claim to. (Always thought “Ready or Not” would go well with a skate part.) Also, “blue collar filming” is a great term.

“99% Invisible,” a public radio show about design, has a sixteen-minute episode about Love Park and skateboarding in public spaces. Solid listen, even if it’s tailored to a mass audience and telling much about what you already know. It reminds us of how this was one of the greatest moments in skateboard history.

Gino talks about the five favorite board graphics he’s had throughout his career.

Lewis Marnell’s Nike SB Chronicles part is online via an unauthorized upload. Skateboarder also has several sequences from when the part was being filmed.

Brian Clarke’s part from Outdated is online. The Bridgeport line is sick. And here’s another part from the NJ-based In Crust We Trust video.

Battylife is an 18-minute New York and New Jersey-based video by Sam Fickinger, with a soundtrack that’ll make people who don’t listen to Future happy.

Some kid backside 360ed El Toro.

Here’s a 2012 “Best of” clip from noted frontside crooked grinder, Petey Pablo fan, and homage-payer to the S.A.D. towel, Connor Champion.

Are Bronze-ish tech nostalgia effects destined to make the #trendwatch?

Taji got out of the cold to skate one of the few mini ramps left in New York with a small crew.

If you’re into parties and rap and stuff, we’re at Westway with Baller’s Eve, Angelo Baque, Thando, etc. on Thursday night.

NPBP*S: The Top 10 Partyboy Pro Skaters

May 11th, 2012 | 10:35 am | Daily News | 20 Comments

Though it may appear that having a next-best-thing-to-free apartment on Spring Street, and the luxury of avoiding work or higher education for the better part of a quarter-century is easy, such an assumption would be a mistake. To the superficial eye, Matthew Mooney’s lifestyle affords him a plethora of free time. However, you should know that he toils in his Nolita office day-in and day-out with the burden of having to solve all of life’s crucial questions. For example, who are the ten best partyboy pro skaters?

For most, concluding on such an elaborate topic would require the time it takes to complete two, maybe three dissertations. Mooney solved it in a mere afternoon, when the Jewish Hockey League had taken over the T.F. and he had nowhere to go. Here is Mooney’s finalized list, just in time for the weekend…

BLACK DONALD TRUMP (& OTHER STUFF) LIVE @ SANTOS TOMORROW NIGHT

April 19th, 2012 | 3:55 pm | Daily News | 1 Comment

Black Donald Trump A.K.A. Black Dave will be performing at Santos tomorrow night (April 20th.) It’s an unofficial kick-off party for his 2012 presidential campaign. The dudes from Palace are DJing. Hosted by Aaron Bondaroff and Fuck This Life. Buy Matt Mooney a beer if you see him. He has hot Golden Lord hair. 21+. 96 Lafayette Street, just south of Canal.

*****FULL FLYER HERE*****

(And since “Does Dave skate anymore?” is becoming somewhat of a frequently asked question by those who are not paying enough attention, you guys should probably watch R.B’s section in The Cinematographer Project and figure out the answer on your own.)

P.S. New spring clip (probably) online tomorrow.

Quartersnacks stickers coming soon whenever we figure out what to put on a sticker, which will probably never happen.

4th of July Links

‘We had three garbage bags full of fireworks. We got through one before the cops showed up.’ — Sweet Waste AKA Black Boy White Boy

We’ve been optimistic about the possibility of Brick Squad Skateboards for a minute now. Birdman beat Gucci to the punch (clearly, it’s difficult to start a skateboard imprint from jail), and dropped a line of YMCMB decks. It would be interesting to know which board production house got hit off with the order on these, and if they got paid with the title to a 2008 Escalade, or sexual favors from a Nicki Minaj stunt double.

This spot was pretty cool when it was around. What the hell did they expect when they built it, a crowd of sunbathers?

Bring back Big Apple Skate.

A.skate, a foundation dedicated to teaching kids with autism how to skateboard, is looking for volunteers to help with a clinic at House of Vans next Sunday (July 10) from 12 to 4 P.M. Register on their website and contribute to a great cause.

In the event that you were looking for a safe bet, low-bust ledge spot in Midtown, you should know that Breezy Ledges is under scaffolding, and temporarily unskateable. On the opposite end of things, has anyone skated Paine Webber in 2011 yet? They have some Indian security guard there now who takes his job way too seriously. Security agencies really need to sit these dudes down and go, “Listen, your sole function is to kick out skateboarders, you’re not saving people’s lives here.”

Not to advocate criminal and ignorant behavior, but skateboarders could hypothetically adopt this method to further our cause in successfully skating two-second busts like the Fuji building, the Fifth Avenue Apple store, Lincoln Center, etc. Turn every spot into an overcrowded skatepark until the riot police show up.

One of skateboarding’s greatest party parts…Brad Johnson in Western Edition’s Did It video. The sort of part you put on before you go skate knowing you’re gonna hit da club after you get your trick. More people need to do frontside 5-0 front shove outs. (Switch and regular.)

“In your white tee shirt or a three piece suit…It don’t matter what you wear, all that matters is who you with.”

Some bootleggers out in Singapore made a fake Supreme shirt with Ty on it. They didn’t try too hard to pass it off as real.

T-Bird came through with a 4th of July dance mix for you to get buck to.

Like everyone else, we gave up on Myspace in 2006, but thank you to everyone who helped us reach 2,000 fans on Facebook. Now on to 3,000. Even bigger thanks if you follow us on Twitter too.
