Quartersnacks’ Canadian Headquarters

The Bunt Podcast has an interview with Canadian sweethearts Ben Blundell and Tyler Warren about crook shoves, getting beat up by “chongos,” filming for the upcoming Antisocial video, Clint Walker beef, etc. Made me #lol more than a few times.

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that this Geoff Campbell part doesn’t have the most # Quartersnacks # trick selection ever.

Andrew Allen’s part in the new Hockey promo is absolutely incredible. Also features the first full Ben Kadow part since maybe \m/ ? Oh AND! Tino Razo did a heartfelt interview with Andrew Allen for Monster Children.

Transworld posted the photos and interview from Cyrus’ AM issue feature.

Here’s an annotated map of Pulaski by Jimmy Pelletier, one of the spot’s longest tenured filmers. “If you called 202-638-9511 on the other side of the pole, a homeless person would usually answer and you could ask if there were any skaters across the street. If they said ‘yes,’ you asked them to yell one of them over to the phone.”

The line-up and challenges for skateboarding’s greatest contest has been released.

“The general consensus with the politicians in Copenhagen is that this is a capital, it’s noisy, people come here to party, have a good time and we need to make the most of that. If it gets too noisy, then move to the country: this is a capital city. I’m not even going to take credit for that, it comes from the politicians.” Basically, Copenhagen is the fucking greatest, and we can’t have nice things in the U.S. #FDT

The New York Times did a feature on the Brujas crew up in The Bronx.

“Are the recent techy stabs a sign that the tide finally is turning away from simplicity or just further fodder to an every-ten-years-tech-shoe fad?” Boil the Ocean re: the resurgence of tech-heavy skate shoes.

Trilogy Turns 15

June 24th, 2011 | 10:05 am | Time Capsule | 7 Comments

The history department over at Frozen in Carbonite made a timely observation that Trilogy turns fifteen-years-old this summer. We are not qualified to dwell on the finer points of this video’s impact upon release (Photosynthesis on the other hand…), as we were not yet skateboarding when it came out. Those of us who started skating after 1998 unfortunately know Kareem Campbell more as a video game character than the guy in Trilogy. Hopefully, the internet’s prevalent cult of Menace nostalgists will seize this anniversary to write something substantial about what the video meant in 1996. It has held up remarkably well, and though much has been said about skate videos becoming more disposable over the past several years, only a few artifacts from the “golden age” of VHS have stood the test of time well enough to inspire nods from the modern era.

The only full, online edition of this video is on Google Video, and the quality is awful. It has been on there for almost four years without deletion. So we’re hoping the folks over at Dwindle do not mind us putting a better quality version online. (Seriously, if you have anything to do with the ownership of this video and you don’t want it here, please e-mail info *at* quartersnacks.com, and it’s gone.) Unicron has the three DVD World Industries box set for $39.99, and mentions that the set is recently out of print. It’s like a Criterion Collection release, but for skateboarders. Buy it while you still can.

Here it is, in Vimeo faux HD. Even with a correct aspect ratio. Watch it, study it, hope Kareem Campbell called back Pat O’Dell to get the Menace episode done, and enjoy the first weekend of the summer. 80 on Saturday, 80 on Sunday. “Where’s your footy at ‘Reem?”
