Happy birthday Torey Goodall

Yo, the fucking height on T.J’s fakie heelflip… Also how far away do you think we are from someone ollieing the 8-flat-8 at the Met? Rumor has it that Bald Head Ed tried it back in the day, but maybe someone should take Chris Pfanner to see some paintings next time he’s in New York?

“Together, Lara and Olson have achieved a small, apocalyptic miracle: they’ve bottled the dreamy spirit of the skate shop.” Kyle Beachy has some nice words for the feel-good film of the year, the 917 Video. Also Logan moved back to L.A. and we’re never gonna see him again.

“From start to finish Sabotage 5 is a gloriously losing war against capitulation to the inevitable. Like any decent funeral, this eulogy is delivered by the immediate family, rather than transient pros, with the locals turning in their last tapes skating Love Park as it was, and a grip of tricks as it is dismantled.” More great video reviews! That one was re: Sabotage 5 via Boil the Ocean.

Monday #inspo: Village Psychic did a great Ron Deily remix with his past year or two of footage. We rigged one back in 2015 as well + this Junk Spot part was a good time.

Better Skate Than Never has been posting some fire Josh Velez .GIFs.

Here’s a short “Summer Trip to N.Y” clip with a pretty sick ender.

Josh Kalis and Brian Wenning skating Philly together. In 2017.

Grey has some pics from the making of the Palace video / the promo for their skatepark is amazing / shout out to Sidewalk for telling us all the Don’t Watch That PWBC news segments are actually still online.

Spot Updates: The rails at Crackhead Park got knobbed, and has anyone stolen the Delancey Curb bench back yet?

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Thank goodness the NBA is back. Gotta give this one to Wiggins, even though now the only thing the Sports Desk roots for is Russell Westbrook’s happiness and well-being (J.R. too.) Must’ve felt like a postseason-esque loss if you’re an OKC fan.

Quote of the Week: “T-Pain is the black Rob Dyrdek.” — Carl Williams

I love Future like one of my dearest friends, but would honestly trade Super Slimey for like, three new Quan and Thug songs.

The Annual PWBC News Segment

July 21st, 2014 | 1:00 pm | Daily News | 21 Comments

Long gone are the days of bi-weekly skateboarding discourse from the PWBC news network. Having shifted focus towards merchandise and the #streets, PWBC anchors are now only summoned to report on the most crucial issues of our time.

In 2014’s installment, they cover:

1) A potential steroid-abusing version of Enrique Lorenzo.
2) Stereo and their responsibility for the proliferation of penny boards.
3) Whether or not using a “bungie cord” as a roll-up is legitimate.
4) Palace being distributed in the United States by Baker Boys.
5) Jamal Smith — star of skateboarding’s legitimate first ever #viral video — coming out of retirement to teach you fakie dreidel spins.
6) Reider’s HUF commercial…obviously.
7) Joey Pepper being chill and Jahmal Williams BGPs.

But most importantly, if you have a United States-based skateboard sales operation or are affiliated with one in any way, it’s going to be significantly easier for you to carry Palace boards now…which might also mean they will be on the road to hiring and staffing an entire PWBC 24-hour news network by 2017.
