I received an exciting e-mail in my inbox yesterday from Howard Glover, the man responsible for the Banks and Manhattan clips linked in the previous post:
I’m working hard on a new OG video called “PRE 2K” its all footage from 97′-99′ in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Cali. Heres a trailer I put together. Looking to finish around the middle of May.Footage includes the likes of Rodney Torres, Joey Alvarez, Matt Bell, NA, Brain Wenning, Ian Reid, Ryan Kenreich, Mike Wright, Geo Moya, Maurice Key, Fred Gall, Lennie Kirk, Gary Smith, Charles Lamb, Ronnie Creager, Chad Muska, Ryan Hickey.
The past two clips already had an ensemble of tricks a lot of people had heard of or only seen photographs of, so the promise of a full-length seems promising, especially since the two clips barely had anything from already released videos.
Also, vaguely on the topic of the nineties in that it is an overt homage to one of the most iconic lines in New York City skateboard history, this is absolutely insane. You can’t knock Mars Attacks after that.
Trailer after the jump.
..but they talking now? They got me circling the block when I’m parking now!
The preview for Watermelon Alex’s upcoming video, Dos Sandias is up and chirping right now. The video should be premiering with Can’t Ban the Snackman Volume 2 somewhere in Manhattan once we figure everything out in early May. Get the beer ready.
We here at Quarter Snacks have put together yet another “best of” compilation like we did at the end of 2006, encompassing all of the better footage we’ve had on the website over the past year and a half. There aren’t too many new bits of footage in it, if any at all — but taking into account the overall memory of the average person watching skate clips on the internet, it should come off fresh since everything has been condensed into parts for all the people featured on the site, like it was with the last video. Can’t Ban the Snackman: Volume 2 has been completed, and should be released towards the end of April / beginning of May. I’m waiting on Watermelon Alex to complete his video, Watermelon 2, which is projected towards the end of this month (and actually does have new footage from everybody in it), and we’re going to try and rig something with a dual premiere, with the Best of Quartersnacks video being an appetizer for Alex’s video. The video itself is going to be distributed for free on DVD. We’re not going to put it on Google or YouTube because most of you have already seen the same footage in compressed quality, so it defeats the purpose. It will be available at several locations for free, but chances are, you’re going to have to be in New York if you want a copy.
…or Youtube rather.
The trailer for Have More Fun, Ian Reid’s new video, allegedly featuring nothing but skateboarding. The part at 2:18 in the trailer is priceless.
