Some things to keep you busy while wading through this unpredicted rain and preparations for the remaining portions of beloved fashion week.
There are a whole lot of flip cam videos on the list for the week, so we’ll just throw them into one long-winding list. Hopefully, the arrival of more innovative pieces of glass will take up a sizable market share of the acceptable skateboard video production equipment. (Spotted via RE1000.)
– The roster comes first, so here is Mooney’s flip cam video featuring a golden era of New Orleans rap soundtrack, him shooting bottle rockets into Elizabeth Street, and skatepark footage.
– Westchester County’s Second Nature Skateshop grabbed a bunch of Dusty Fingers compilations and edited them alongside a solid six-and-a-half-minute-long montage of their team. Features Burton Smith and Brian Brown cameos.
– A quick digi cam video from New Jersey via the Jaundice Crew / Adam Abada.
– A clip of Yaje and some others skating around places that admirably aren’t 12th and A. This one doesn’t seem to have been filmed on an iPhone, which is probably why it involves actual skate spots. Hollywood skates to the “Pretty Boy Swag” remix, which seems to have taken the title of “song of the summer,” neglecting the fact that nobody really listens to it past the 1:20 mark. Other skateboard related pretty-boy-swagisms.

Ethnically-themed skateboard companies are usually hit-or-miss, seeing as how they can be either the second or third greatest skate company of all-time (I know there are white people on it, shut up), or a bunch of closet white supremacists, but either way, Quartersnacks backs any company that backs Joseph Delgado.
Rob Campbell skates the Banks uphill in his latest Airspeed shoes commercial.
Even though everyone has seen this Japanese Jason Dill video interview by now, he touches upon a very valuable point in it: destroying property. Something so crucial to skateboarding’s heart is doing just that, and it will never be replicated by the Bronx park, the new Westside Highway park, or the Astoria park.
Full Bleed seems to have reached the upper echelons of attention within the journalistic world, because it got a brief feature from The New Yorker.
Element got Danny Barley back on board. If you need a reminder of his status as one of the most well-versed individuals in the art of skating in the middle of street, please watch this. (The picture quality is unfortunately, pretty awful.)
The most important news of the day: Roctakon is on Twitter.
