There’s Always Next Year

We kept wishing 1999 would show up. 2010-2011 was a good building block of a season. The future doesn’t look as dim as we’ve grown to expect it.

Let’s get the most important news out of the way: Soulja Boy is set to remake Juice, the 1992 film starring Tupac and Omar Epps. Somewhere deep in his subconscious, Giglotti’s hip-hop side is screaming blasphemy. Cam’ron is said to have a role in the ambitious remake, but his track record with completing motion pictures is somewhat iffy. In other words, what happened to Cousin Bang?

Ladies and gentlemen, here is Theodore Barrow skating Stoner Park.

Haven’t skated Jersey City in quite some time, so perhaps this is a bit late, but there’s a new medium-sized gap right next to that building on Second Street and the Hudson River with all the [knobbed] step-up ledges.

You have no doubt seen Ty Evans’ video with a pair of twelve-year-old twins being better at skateboarding than the entire tri-state area if it were combined into one person, but something about it screams for a “Grove Street Party” re-edit. Perhaps even some Pastor Troy.

A friend is casting for a full-length film he is doing, which happens to require people who can actually skateboard for their roles. Go here for more info on the film, and a breakdown of the available roles. It’s the sort of thing that probably requires acting abilities, unlike most skateboarder “castings” in New York. Basically, not like that “All the girls standing in line for the bathroom” video shoot, when they told you to “dress like a skater…wear a flannel,” and it ended early because someone got stabbed.

Not sure who put this together, but it’s a straight-foward 23 minutes of (mostly) New York skating, with no annoying songs, and many Flipmode favorites. Should be enough to get you through the early part of the week.

Here’s the Mandible Claw New York section / intro from the crew’s new video. If people start treating that ledge through the keyhole at Saint Vincent’s as an actual spot, we will reach a new, even more absurd height in terms of “what’s considered a ‘spot'” in New York.

Never really been into Skate Talk, but here’s a compilation of the Antwuan Dixon, “fresh out of jail” episode. Subject matter and slang editorials make it interesting.

  2. Seemed pretty wavy when all those shots were going in for the past week.

    Chicago beats Atlanta.

    Boston beats Miami.

    Chicago beats Boston.

  3. Right now, the excitement of the NBA vastly supersedes that of skate videos. But that’s just my opinion.

    Perhaps quartersnacks.com/NBA & quartersnacks.com/rap are the next powermoves on the horizon.

  4. D’antoni should’ve started me at the 1 after Chauncey went down…fuck D’antoni.

  5. A Juice remake with Soula Boy?! are you fuckin’ kidding me?! That fuckin’ kid was born in 1990, he never saw that movie in Theaters. I can’t name a single song that kid has made and now he wants to remake a movie that had 2pac? I blame the dunions and all the other cornball kids who look up to pieces of shit like Soulja Boy. Soulja? he’s no soldier, he’s a pansy,and anyone who uses the word “swag” in a sentence is a fuckin’ clown. All rap music is pretty much garbage now and the statement “yeah, but it’s funny” doesn’t carry. Lil’ Wayne and Soulja Boy and that “black and yellow” kid are the reason this country is going down the gutter.
    Why try and remake something that is already perfect? this is like Tim Burton remaking Willy Wonka; terrible idea. If this movie had to be remade, it should star Noreaga and whoever he decides to cast, but he is not stupid enough to do this.

  6. anyone down for a game of basketball right now. full court at 12th and A. we’ll play on a basket that gets in the way of the sex slaves b/s smiths.

  7. gigliotti sounds like an old man…dont worry pops your a generation or two ahead of him so your not supposed to understand

  8. I wouldnt go so far as to say that Lil Wane and Soulja Boy are the reason this country is going down the tubes. I respect Gigliotti’s opinion though.
