Congratulations to the Dallas Mavericks. Real psyched for Dirk, the 38-year-old Jason Kidd (THERE’S STILL HOPE STEVE NASH — ASK FOR A TRADE!), Jim Carrey, Jet, Matrix, Deshawn “Abraham Lincoln neck tat” Stevenson, TYSON CHANDLER, Miss Universe 2006’s boo, and Corey Brewer, WHO GOT WAIVED FROM THE KNICKS only to become an NBA champion three months later (legitimate contribution or not.) Mooney had a whole Texas kit last night, right down to the Pimp C shrimp cocktail homage. All in all, it was a great NBA season.
In other big news, Leo Gutman is making a comeback. Taji put together a three-minute clip of him skating around downtown, wreaking havoc on skate spots, retail establishments, and unmarked police vehicles. That metal Leonard Street ledge is the high, 2011 version of 11th and Wythe (R.I.P.)
Brian Kelley has an interview with E.J. up on his site, tackling topics like art, the East Village, Tompkins, and a preposterous assertion that Two Boots has the best slice in the city. There’s a no discussion as to how he intends to compete with Chris Brown though.
E.J. also recently sent over this weird 12th & A clip with the colors inverted. If you’re looking for something with no color effects, his Vimeo page revealed an old montage from 2008. Frontside ollie over the 12-stair double rail in front of Chase was real sick.
Galen Dekemper may not be here throughout the summer, but he put together a sixteen-minute clip with stuff off his Flip cam to hold everyone over. Includes footage of what may be the brightest Waka Flocka concert ever conducted. “It was at 7 P.M. in a convention center.” Mooney also put together an iPhone clip a real random song selection. Which brings us to our next point…
If Apple leaves portrait recording mode ON iOS 5, THEY HAVE FAILED AS A COMPANY. Get that shit out of here. Portrait mode should be called “WorldStar Mode” at this point.
Skateboarding in Central Park: Circa 1965. Evidently, skating is a lot different now.
Rail of Death. Magazine cover or early retirement waiting to happen.

Despite Quartersnacks’ status as “The Most Known Unknown” (more on why that is the case here), we’re 100 shy of 2,000 Facebook fans. We will probably remain “known unknowns” until we hit the 10,000 mark, so until then, hit up our Facebook page, or click the button at the bottom of the sidebar.
Follow us on Twitter while you’re at it. The NBA tweets have ceased until November / when the lockout ends / when the Knicks do something stupid.
