Tino Razo — Hurricane at the Bronx bank-to-ledge, via Jonathan Mehring‘s “Making of ‘cherry’” feature that appeared on the Thrasher site, and then got taken down an hour later for mysterious reasons. Mountain Dew lifted a bunch of the photos and reposted them on their site with some shots that don’t even belong there, and no credit back to Mehring. Normally wouldn’t link something like that blatantly slapdashed together, but it’s all Thrasher’s fault in the end.

Gonna stop claiming #surfboard Vines are over. They just keep getting better.

Chris Nieratko interviews Bobby Worrest about his all-Pulaski part. (Contrary to what Nieratko’s intro says, though obviously not speaking from experience on this side or anything…isn’t the story that Pulaski was relatively low-bust back when things like this were getting filmed? Also, what is the DC montage that was edited to Eric B. & Rakim “Relax With Pep?” It’s the DC section from Eastern Exposure 2.)

In honor of the aforementioned all-Pulaski part, Kingpin put together a #listicle of ten great mostly one-spot parts. Lucas Puig’s line in the new Adidas clip makes one wonder when the first all-Republique part is gonna be…(P.S. Adidas, you don’t need to send out four press release e-mails a week. Thx.)

Another quick clip to get you more hyped for Zered’s upcoming Transworld part.

New mini video from the Sex Hippies crew in western Massachusetts and the Albany area. The title is #NSFW but the content is quite #SFW.

“It’s getting harder to come up with new ways to fix something that isn’t broken, but they managed to do it.” Really? Is there even any reason for anything besides Independent, Thunder and Venture to exist?

Lurker Lou x Young Jeezy Faux One One “One Year Later” remix.

The homie Uncle Steve put together a New York Super-8 clip for Krooked with Brad Cromer and Mark Gonzales, a la A Love Supreme but in 2014 though…

A new, moody promo from Grace Skate Co. out in Long Island.

The new Skateboard Mag cover is an instant classic New York photo.

“Can we get a Supreme video review?”
When Dill is talking to Gonz his abs look so sick.”

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Another Steph Curry circus shot. Any Warriors match-up in the first round is going to be must-see TV. Actually, pretty much any western conference match-up in the first round is going to be must-see TV, provided you can deal with watching Houston shoot 1,000 free throws. They should cancel the eastern conference playoffs and make Pacers-Heat first to twelve wins.

R.I.P. to the Hat. R.I.P. to any sight of spring. It’s snowing tomorrow. R.I.P. QS.

Monday links for another hot — but not as hot — week.

Billy Rohan tests out the usability of Citibikes on New York’s most popular skate spots. Too bad no one rolled into the actual Courthouse Drop on one…

The only review of the new Jay-Z album you need to hear.

With some 58,000+ signatures and proper organization, skateboarders have, at the very least, delayed the reconstruction of the legendary South Bank spot in London. The group behind the the preservation has applied to grant the space “village green” status, which protects historic places for sports and pasttimes. Meanwhile, the Small Banks are a rotting carcass of bricks, dust and heroin needles.

Luis Tolentino confirms that his pop comes from eating bricks, and skates around New York’s biggest borough with Rodney Torres and the legendary Rob Campbell.

With Outdated behind us, Elijah Cole insisting that the Cathode video is coming out “next month” is the new Kevin Tierney insisting that J.P’s video is coming out “next month.” Anyway, new here’s a new promo for Cathode.

UXA has an upcoming video with Eli Reed, which co-stars Fat Johnny, the author of arguably the greatest “Quote of the Week” in QS history. Check the teaser here.

Gavin Nolan with a minute-long line in the new Jenkins Log clip.

Chrome Ball has been going out with a bang by posting a new interview each day. Marc Johnson’s is likely the best of the bunch, and confirms some of the speculation that went around why certain people weren’t as prevalent in Pretty Sweet as we had hoped. Good to hear his “lost” Tilt Mode goof-around part from the Bag of Suck-era has been found, considering the somewhat goofy Man Down part is his best.

A Mike Heikkila cruiser part filmed weeks after breaking both arms.

Stephen McClintock put together an artsy Super 8 video for DQM featuring a bunch of familiar faces. NY-based skate shops love Super 8.

I woke up in a new Bugatti.

Galen Dekemper offers some thoughts on the life and demise of 12th & A.

Reda and Zered hit up the Feast of St. Anthony.

Quote of the Week: “I feel like people who drive Smart Cars do, like, smart-ass shit.” — E.J. upon seeing a Smart Car weave between two construction cones

Last but not least: Nobody makes a tampon commercial quite like the Russians.

Hurricane Sandy Links

Rest in Peace Reggie Destin. Reggie’s friends are continuing their fundraiser to cover hospital costs and services. Sam McGuire and Joe Hammeke, two midwest-based photographers, are selling prints of skate photos for the same cause. (This shot of a back tail on the Sundial Ledges in Chicago is great.) Our friend Martin Davis is also printing a run of the original Push Skateshop tees to raise money.

Austyn Gillette and friends skating around New York in this last minute (and extremely saturated) entry to the “Summer in New York” clip cycle.

Skateboarder posted an interview with Chris Keefe about DQM’s collaboration with Cliché. It includes a bunch of photos by Jonathan Mehring.

Whoa, a Corey Rubin sighting AND a Loose Trucks Max sighting in the same clip?

Some young kids shredding cutty spots. Anyone born post-1990 and still skating the best material / worst ground State Building ledge gets extra points.

Blacking out on 4Loko (#trendwatch2009?), and Luis Tolentino and Rob Gonyon skating those two skateparks in Queens.

A lifestyley clip of skating in Harlem, unsurprisingly set to Big L. At first, it seemed appropriate to point skateboarders in the direction of this Rap & R&B section on the “People from Harlem” Wikipedia page, but it doesn’t include Charly Wingate (or G. Dep), so consider it useless.

The Skateboard Mag re-posted a New York article with the Stereo team from 2009.

Our friend Stephen McClintock’s photo show, “Happiness is Expensive,” is supposed to have its closing reception tonight from 6 to 10 P.M. Click here for the flyer. As you could imagine, it is weather-dependent. Todd Jordan interviewed him over on The Heavy Mental.

The NBA season starts back up tomorrow. James “I Disappeared from the 2012 Finals” Harden got traded to the Houston Rockets, thus ending any sort of QS Sports Desk pipe dream scenario where the Bulls amnesty Carlos Boozer and somehow end up with Harden, or Oklahoma extends Harden’s contract and trades Westbrook for a guard who actually passes to the best scorer in the NBA (ideally Rondo, but you know, these are mere fantasies.) Brace yourself for a sportswriter’s dream / New York fan’s nightmare of a Lakers-Heat Final. In other news, 50% of the Knicks roster is already hurt, and Jeremy Evans had the best play of the pre-season.

Good luck with this Hurricane Sandy mess. Here’s our “Ten Hurricanes Better Than Hurricane Irene” post from last year, which could easily be re-applied to Sandy.
