Coming Attractions

Still holding it down for all the tall tee wearers out there.

We’re going to be dropping another QS Since Day One remix in the next week, week-and-a-half. A New York skate site is going to try and make a San Francisco skate part (sorry, no KRS-One.) We’ll see how that one goes. Busenitz skated to a song that was in an older Baker video in Since Day One, plus him and Brandon Westgate are probably the only people who take pushes while doing lines down hills (always a plus), so a remix to his part seemed like a natural choice. (Taking a break from the trap rap this time around.) Expect some extra unseen b-side footage thrown in there.

Quick teaser below. (“A teaser for a part that already came out bro?!”) Previously: Ishod Wair SDO re-edit, Since Day One DVD extras re-edit.

On a completely unrelated note: Remember how this time, three years ago, Gucci Mane got out of jail, dropped The Writing on the Wall, and spent the next nine months making an undisputed case for “Best Rapper Alive” status circa 2009 until going back to jail (four or five times), and eventually getting an ice cream cone tattooed on his face, which may or may not have affected his overall rapping ability? It’s an embarrassing tragedy how this site has only used one song from The Writing on the Wall, and that entire tour de force of a 2009 as the soundtrack for a video clip. But yeah, Memorial Day weekend / “Start of Summer” clip up tomorrow morning, like Gucci Mane’s new mixtape. It won’t be as good as the one from 2009 (embedded below), also like Gucci Mane’s new mixtape.

Is this the greatest shirt to ever be featured in a Quartersnacks clip?

This was originally supposed to go online yesterday, but after falling into deep depression at around the 11:15 P.M. mark of a certain sporting event on Thursday night, Friday wasn’t the productive day the Quartersnacks office had envisioned. (To any Chicago readers: Has Scottie Pippen been temporarily banned from the city yet?) But life (barely) goes on, and enough emotional strength was gathered to put together our traditional beginning of summer / Memorial Day weekend montage. It features plenty of diamond plated ledges, long 5050s, a lot of 180s (both backside and frontside), a No Limit classic alongside its respective eastern remix, and even a Brengar cameo.

Features Josh Velez, Alex, Pad Dowd, Matthew Mooney, Galen Dekemper, Alexander Mosley, Billy Rohan, Dave Willis, Stephan Martinez, Kevin Tierney, Shawn Powers, and Ben Nazario.

P.S. We don’t condone lying on dirty mattresses in SoHo so your friends could ollie over you.

P.P.S. Young Jeezy has a new mixtape out for Memorial Day weekend. Normally, this would get its own, dedicated post treatment, but he has been spending the past year recording Rick Ross bites (things have really changed, huh), so expectations for it aren’t as high as they were in the pre-Lex Luger/Fake Lex Luger beat and celebrity name as a hook era.

Gone So Long

The QS3 companion piece. The spring collective. The-skating-in-SoHo-at-2-AM-and-getting-eggs-thrown-at-you documentary. The tradition of dirty lenses. Doing this for Memorial Day weekend, whether you’re spending it on your board, at your grill, or in Seaside Heights with the homie, The Situation. The 48 hours promise was a bit off, but you know how that goes. There’s another one around the corner (ok, well maybe not around the corner, but a few blocks down. So if I have footage of you, and it’s not in here, it’ll be in the next one. You know who you are.)

Miles Marquez, Josh Velez, Pad Dowd, Galen Dekemper, Matthew Mooney, Jerry Mraz, Jason LeCras, Justin White, Ben Nazario, Thando Beschta, Brian Clarke, & Watermelon Alex.

Contributing camera-holders: Justin White & Jake Hanly.

Snack or Die III

This is what we’ve been waiting for, a weather widget in the sidebar?

The extent of QS3 exists behind the scenes of Quarter Snacks. The older version of the website was run on an immensely outdated version of WordPress that was too old to comfortably upgrade, in addition to the fact that the layout was more-or-less stuck in 2002, and the least-flexible thing in the world. So, the changes, while not too immense on the surface, make updates run smoother, all within the confines of one content management system, which yes, will result in an overall more frequent string of updates. Either way:

1. The “Words” portion of the website has been integrated within the standard archive, which is accessible via the category links on the side. The videos can be accessed through the “Complete Video Archive” link or the “Footage” category link if you want to see the clips within the context of their original post. The entire archive was slowly updated to both Vimeo and YouTube, and the direct download links remained. You can find everything on the complete archive.

2. Everything now has tags, so if you’re looking for all of the posts with a “Quote of the Week”, or have a schoolgirl crush on Jake Johnson, you can find their tag and find every post they were mentioned in.

3. The “Complete Text Archive” link has a complete list of all the posts on the website by date (year and then month), so it is a lot easier to find archived posts back to 2006.

4. Same old infamous QS-comment board, but now you can utilize Gravatars, so you can totally have a picture of Lady Gaga next to your username every time you want to post while talking shit about Matt Mooney. Sign up for one here.

5. The Spots section has been completely overhauled. Google Maps, directions-to options, Light boxes (i.e. no pop-ups anytime you look at detail pictures), and neighborhood-based organization included.

6. New clip in less than 48 Hours.

7. A few Saturdays back, I was standing with Boss Bauer in front of Rosario’s at one in the morning discussing the ever-increasing ubiquity of Twitter. His verdict was “the site is good enough as is, you don’t need a Twitter.” I happened to agree with him, but integrated a feature that we have come to love from both Twitter and Facebook Mobile Uploads into the sidebar of QS. Probably the most revolutionary addition in QS3, is the “Quarter-Diary” category, which essentially enables us to upload photos to the sidebar, from our phones, of all sorts of stupid shit from, well, the streets. You can view the archive for it here from when I was testing it out over the past two weeks while finishing up the website.

8. Speaking of Twitter, there is officially a Twitter.com/quartersnacks, but solely for the purpose of subscribing to posts. We cannot simply ignore technology, and a lot of people find their internet content through Twitter these days. So, follow QS so you can get an automatized update every time something new goes up on the site. It is rigged so it posts from WordPress automatically, so no, you will not be getting any opinions on the finale of Lost or Iron Man 2 or “OMG SO BOREEEDD” messages if you choose to follow it.

9. There’s always the Facebook page though. People seem to have less of a moral dilemma with Facebook than with Twitter.

10. IF YOU FIND ANYTHING THAT DOESN’T WORK — I.E. COMMENTS, BROKEN LINKS, BROKEN IMAGES, ETC. PLEASE CONTACT INFO [AT] QUARTERSNACKS [ DOT] COM, OR VIA FACEBOOK, OR YES, USE TWITTER.

Another king gone.

You already know the drill. Dirty lenses, excessive cross dissolves, curbs, the worst filmed Jake Johnson footage you’ll ever see, Lenox Ledges, etc.

Features Miles Marquez, Ty Lyons, Matthew Mooney, Tyler Mate, Jack Greer, Tyler Tufty, DJ Roctakon, Ian Reid, Galen Dekemper, Jake Johnson, Billy Rohan, Charles Lamb, Brendan Granstrand, Snack, Justin White, Negative, Taji Ameen, Benjamin Nazario and Michael Gigliotti.

Contains cameos from Switch Michael Strobert, Thando Beschta, whores from Washington Heights and Danny Weiss.

Thanks to Justin White, Jeremy Cohan, Alex Rialdi, and Brengar for contributing footage.

There is an alternate edit of this that was unfortunately suppressed by the Quartersnacks Board of Trustees as it was declared too racist and ignorant for public disclosure. While I still feel that is not the case, it is better to keep it buried in a folder of random edits to ensure that nobody gets offended.
