Monday Links Are In Retrograde

If you need affirmation of how incredibly difficult it has been to do these posts over the past two weeks, look no further than the fact that Thrasher is posting astrology content, this girl is still looking for which one of you who spilled coffee on yourself at Herald Square, and apparently, EVERYTHING is “going right” in skateboarding right now…Spring can’t come soon enough.

“I used to be more of a character back in the day and just dive into the river, swimming for the board and making people laugh. I remember Jaime Reyes gagging because I was in there doing backstrokes. They say swimming in that shit helps your immune system.” Village Psychic spoke to Brian Wenning about some of the spots that were instrumental to his skating.

Caddo and Lou gave up on skateparks in 2016. It looks like it has been working out.

…aanndd John Valenti uploaded five minutes worth of B-sides featuring Lou, Caddo and Taylor Nawrocki from his N.Y. Archive video.

TWS uploaded all the raw footage from the Villains dudes’ trip to New York.

Theories resumed Elkin Raw files, which are always heavy on Leo and Aaron footy.

(Three raw clip links in a row, see what I mean? Springtime hellooo where r u…)

PFP5, the latest installment of Michael Sassano’s now long-running Westchester skate video series, will be premiering up in Peekskill on Saturday the 14th. Teaser here.

The crooked rail at Columbus Park is maybe the last place anyone expected to see a slappy front nose 270 A.K.A. the Explore Page, but there it was in Matthew Martin’s Hombre Hardware part.

“Cyclist stabs skateboarder during street spat.” Ok, the “It’s a fucking bike lane, asshole!”-guys are getting a bit out of hand.

Though Hurricane Maria obviously derailed the recent tradition of every skate crew spending January and February in Puerto Rico, the Scumco guys still made it down there for a fun trip video. Tons of Philly Santosuosso footage ♥

The Bunt’s newest episode is with Austyn Gillette.

Oh and, we have a new project with Nike SB coming out. April 14. More info soon :)

Since skate content is running low, here’s a link to a new Peewee Longway video that is four minutes of him reenacting the quaalude scene from Wolf of Wall Street.

And with militant veganism being so fashionable with New York skateboarders right now, here’s an informative article about eating right that isn’t Alex Olson yelling at you for eating a cheeseburger. Jk hi Alex ♥

QS Sports Fuck the NCAA, Respect to the Players-Desk Play of the Week: Gonna be so sick when J.R. Smith is the 2018 Finals MVP this year.

This clip got posted on April 8, 2007 (Marcus Garvey rails were a new spot then…), and dubbed “The Neverending Winter.” Same mood eleven years later (a lot of these spots are still around), though I wish the quality of the upload wasn’t full trash.

All tees still available in the webstore, hoodys are sold out. Available instore from Supreme New York & LA, Seasons, Humidity, One-Up, Commissary, Exit and NJ Skateshop. If you’re in Europe, QS gear is available online via Lost Art (free shipping in the UK), Palomino and Cali Roots. Thanks for the support.

Alexander Mosley launched his new website, Watermelonism.com. New clip on there featuring a quick Billy Waldman cameo. Support the Watermelon man by buying a board or tee. Down since day zero.

Trevor Colden won over the entire QS office by skating to Migos for his Skate Mental intro part (oddly to the song we joked about using for the Westgate remix.) Needless to say, skimming through people crying about the music supervision in the comments was real familiar experience. Now who’s gonna skate to “Freak No More?”

In addition to the lost Reese Forbes part that made it online last week, Donny Barley had a full section from the same Quiksilver promo. It’s great.

Volume 2 of Muckmouth’s “Where are they now?” series featuring Billy Valdez, Aaron Snyder, Robbie Gangemi, Eric Ricks and others. Speaking of Aaron Snyder, how good would an Epicly Later’d on the entire Shorty’s team be? (Huf is getting one, BTW.)

Diamond Days #73. Keith still doesn’t know where the lipstick came from.

There’s, like, one good spot in London.

There’s a 59-year-old cab driver in the Guangdong providence of China (a place with more than one spot) who doesn’t speak a word of English, but makes a living driving skateboarders around to spots that he shows them on his phone.

There’s a Leo Heinert video check-out over on the TWS site. He frontside 5050s through the knobs on the long Union Square rail.

New Balance with probably the highest production value on a “Summer Trip to New York” clip ever. Can we please stop attaching two-minute credits sections after three-minute web clips? All due respect to those behind the scenes, but it’s excessive.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kevin Durant’s fallaway four-point play was insane, but the Thunder ended up losing the game in overtime, so it’s got to go to Vince Carter’s three-point game winner. Who knew Vince Carter was seventh in all-time made threes? How good have the playoffs been? Is the cloud of Donald Sterling’s worldview from two centuries ago going to end up costing the Clippers the series?
