With the summer now completely behind us, here is a quick clip of outtakes from the Heat Wave / End of Summer video. Big thank you to everyone who reposted that clip.
Though this site’s B-footage may be C-footage elsewhere, and our standard for camera-holding (aka “filming”) quality accepts anything with an excess of 20% of the skater’s body in the frame, we are the only skate site on the internet with a Mannie Fresh cameo. This means your color correction, DSL-R handles, and emotional montages are still meaningless by comparison. By popular demand, this clip includes even more footage of Barcelonian prostitutes’ sales pitches, some of Mooney’s more grammatically challenged moments, controversial Google searches, a review of Mulberry Street Turkey Ham, and some second (or even third!) angles. Not to mention Wavy Mike’s suggestions for gender diversification at Supreme.

This Thursday, September 15, from 7 to 9 P.M., Bowery Stadium will be hosting a six-year anniversary party for Quartersnacks.com. Yes, it’s somehow been that long. There will be a screening of our summer video, “Heat Wave,” which is essentially a glorified “End of Summer” clip, featuring our Barcelona trip, sessions on the Stadium Wave, summertime degeneracy, and plenty of trademark front shoves with shaky filming. There are two flip-in tricks throughout the entire video, and maybe three switch ones. Teaser one here and teaser two here.
Bowery Stadium is located on 276 Bowery at Houston Street, right next to Pulino’s and across the street from Whole Foods. F train to Second Avenue, and it’s a block away.
There will probably be beer and other refreshments. You bring the Rosé, chopped cheese, and King magazine models. Gucci Mane will unfortunately not be performing this time. Video invite below.
With the impending lockout headed for the worst, fans are left to hand-paint teams’ logos on pieces of wood in Rockaway while secretly planning quarter-filled sock ambushes on David Stern.
Here is the second and final teaser for the video we’re working on with Bowery Stadium. Hopefully, we’re all still alive and not living underwater after this much hyped up hurricane weekend. Otherwise, you can expect Quartersnacks to turn into a full-fledged surf site. We’re going to pioneer surfing Brooklyn cellar door spots and all the other abominations of the skate spot world, except on water.
Video is due out the week of September 12th. Alternate YouTube link here. First teaser here. If this site doesn’t turn into a surfing site by the end of the weekend, we’ll be sure to make use of whatever propped up tile/broken tree obstacles appear throughout the city.
Keep away from windows, stock up on beer/food/batteries/movies you’ve been meaning to watch, and have a safe weekend.
Though we typically like to cap the summer off with the necessary “End of Summer” montage, this year we have been working with the crew over at Bowery Stadium to come up with something different for those last few days before everyone goes back to school/reality. Barcelona is only a small part of it, as the final production is destined to have an innumerable amount of front shoves and absurd New York spots to keep the angry purists happy.
Brief teaser below (answering our own “Question of the Summer.”) Much more to come. Full video due out September 12th, 2011. It’ll be during fashion week, so we’ll be working around the clock to make it up to Roctakon’s standards for this most sacred of New York weeks.
