“Yoooooooo, I heard she lives off the Kosciusko J.” “Yeah, I think I saw her at Five Leaves once.” ♥

Alien Workshop’s forgotten legacy: Ass shot 360 flips.

Y’all lucky Marcus McBride ain’t ten years younger!

The clearly Bronze-inspired Bev video is a fun watch. Troy’s part is sick, and Kasper’s ender at the 23rd Street hospital is something that footage can’t really do justice to.

Video blog #210 from the Beef Patty crew and NY Times #8 from the LurkNYC crew.

If you’ve seen one skateboarder’s “Day in the Life” clip, you’ve seen them all — EXCEPT only one has footage of Daniel Lebron skating flat in it.

Muckmouth tracked down Peter Bici, Ryan Hickey and even Henry Sanchez (who was the only glaring omission from the FTC book…he’s not very talkative here though) for their endless “Where are they now?” series.

New all-Southbank “Sission” clip from the PWBC. Not as good #musicsupervision as the last installment, but there are some rad Chewy Canon lines there.

Kennedy Cantrell’s part in the Dallas-based Burnt Out video solid. He goes over a moat mid-line. Full vid here. His part is at the 28-minute mark; haven’t had a chance to watch the full video yet. “They hatin’ on us ‘cuz we out here!”

Dylan Goldberger / James has a new part out for Coda Skateboards. Is that part he had in the Prizefighter video two years ago still online? Can’t find it anywhere.

The Tumblrverse scanned Big Brother’s 1999 article about fashion and skateboarding, which explains the origin of the Bob shirt, among other things. To all you other skateboard media institutions: Dibs on a 2014 remake.

The Spectacle Theater (S 3rd Street in Williamsburg) will be playing Memory Screen on June 10th at 8 P.M. Chris Carter and Duane Pitre will be in attendance, and will hold a Q & A after the video.

This is what came of the Murray Hill spot mentioned in a post from a few weeks ago.

They’re making a documentary about Kids. On one hand, you’d like to wish that everyone would stop mining one of the most easily mineable relics of nineties nostalgia and focus elsewhere (Huf Epicly Later’d!), but on the other hand, last year’s Narratively article about the making of the film was better than the movie itself. A 90-minute version of that would probably be awesome.

New York is still sketchy if you look hard enough.

R.I.P. to the S 2nd and Havemeyer Social Club.

The new Twitter sucks. Who’s going to Future tomorrow?

PWBC News Is Back!!!

Palace’s addition of Danny Brady and Benny Fairfax seemed like an inevitability, but no one expected this ninety-degree Saturday to yield the return of PWBC news. Most assumed the PWBC team had moved past broadcast journalism and into the more profitable hard goods manufacturing / Rihanna-baiting market, leaving the Tompkins bench depleted of a 2010 conversation centerpiece.

We now have reason to believe that British-based skate roster upheaval is finally settling down. American rosters remain in utter disarray, which is why the latest report focuses on topics pertaining to the former British colony. PWBC’s revival deals with the rebranding of Austyn Austin Gillette, the lack of a case for #trendwatch2012 bleached hair, and the never-ending saga of “omg is he being #sincere or #ironic?” when utilizing current rap for music supervision. Also, you can cross off Palace as a potential Dill destination, because they only hire black guys with dreadlocks and white guys who listen to too much rap (Odd Future doesn’t count bro.)

The report doesn’t limit itself to current day happenings, as the fifteen-year-plus question of how exactly Lamont Macintosh rode up the Banks wall the way he did is brought back into the spotlight.

Good to have these guys back.

In the event that you want to see actual Danny Brady footage, check this standalone version of his shared part from Rob Harris’ Dece Vid.

Red Bottoms x Skateboarding: Vol. 2. You can tell Miley skates because her wheels are mad crusty yo.

A new teaser for Solo Jazz, the upcoming project from Bronze.

America could learn a lot from the Germans. They took hunks of granite from an old government building and used them to produce an amazing skate spot on an obsolete airfield. Imagine if all that City Hall granite actually went towards making a skate plaza for the city of Philadelphia? How many city plazas get torn out and reduced to scrap each year in the U.S? The “solution” is so simple, but gets turned into such a stupid mess because of zoning / permits / $$$ / insurance / red tape.

The Dimestore dudes made a parody of New York clips and it is incredible.

Manolo and Cliché teamed up for a J.B. Gillet “best of” edit. Dude has always been up there with Kalis in the “best flip tricks” category.

Shade is a 25-minute video by Jeremy Jordan (Todd Jordan’s brother), based out of New York [State]. Grown dudes don’t have to be pro to still rip.

This ongoing advocacy for the front of Union Square returning to its glory days is one of 2013’s most interesting developments.

“Now, the padless deep-pool and vert work of Ben Hatchell, Grant Taylor, Elijah Berle and Jaws may for the coming generation obviate pads and helmets altogether, because, when everybody’s good enough to do every trick, there is no point in falling and getting hurt.” Boil the Ocean dwells on the future of skateboard retail.

The NY Skateboarding crew re-designed their website.

Did @badgalriri teleport from the future to this party by any chance?

New bro cam clip from the PWBC fam.

Speaking of which, Palace eBay / bootleg watch: Might want to use spellcheck.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Is Brandon Knight okay?

Quote of the Week: “Pick up your pants, you criminal!” — A Parks Department security guard regarding the G Man’s sagging, oversized pants as he fled a prohibited skate spot.

P.S. Even though Instagram ended the necessity of our “Trife Look of the Week” series, we might have to bring it back for this special occasion — 2 Bros. has a breakfast menu now.

The City College hubba is a wrap. Thanks to Julian for the tip. In commemoration, above is Judaism’s second finest athlete (second to Amare Stoudemire), Danny Weiss, performing a backside 5050 on the now defunct ledge in 2004. Photo by Jeremy Cohan. Got to love how gigantic it looks there.

And it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t acknowledge the fall that may or may not have been responsible for one of rap music’s most unfortunate careers.

Who’s trying to do one of these in Midtown?

Transworld hooked Yaje up with a wallpaper a few weeks ago. One of the finest front feeblers working in skateboarding today.

Bill Strobeck put together a new clip for Quiksilver, in the form of a diptych combining art footage, a few skate tricks, and some presumably marijuana-infused ramblings about pizza slices. It has been a love-or-hate sort of affair. (28 likes, 21 dislikes.)

Finally found a good quality, full version of the Jason Dill “Day in the Life” from 411 #61. It was voted the 93rd most important event in New York skateboarding throughout the 2000s, mostly due to its fashionable neglect of car ownership, its affinity for coffee, and the Gizmo cameo. We’re going to speak with our production department on getting a Matthew Mooney and Jason Dill joint day in the life done for 2011.

Everyone knows the new Grace Ledge plaza was remodeled by skateboard hating sadists, but it’s just getting ridiculous now. They put a row of metal benches in the far back corner on 43rd Street.

It was a pretty honorable move on behalf of the Palace crew when they stopped making PWBC segments just as they peaked in popularity, but they might need to come out of retirement just for the sake of incorporating this video into an episode.

Wish we had Wawa in New York instead of 7-11, but 7-11 had sick commercials in the seventies.

Quote of the Week
FedEx Security Guard: “No skateboarding.
Inquisitive Gentleman: “Oh, but that crackhead sitting over there screaming is cool?
FedEx Security Guard: “Yes, that’s our policy.
Midtown is clearly more fond of drug use than skateboarding.
