Thanks to everyone who supported the QS for Nike SB collaboration, and all of you who came out to the first annual Quartersnacks Cup on Saturday. We have some pairs left in the webstore, though you’ll have better luck on sizes if you’re going for a navy pair ;) Use the code “MONDAYLINKS” to reward yourself for reading the words on this website, and get free U.S. shipping on the shoes until midnight tonight E.S.T. Everything else you gotta cover the shipping on though.
We uploaded the IG story of the contest as a placeholder. Official recap coming soon.
“Drifting toward the childhood and the feminine. It’s not always about masculinity, and drinking, and fucking skater guys…Everybody has that inner child or feminine side. It’s cool to embrace that.” Shout out Genny, Conor and Humble. The Fader did a rad feature on their operation that reads different than much of the “small skate brand” stories you see out there. Show them some love.
Surprised that lines through the entire block aren’t more of a thing in footage from Big Screen Plaza. Bret Gregory’s Hombre Hardware part is a good time.
“Just liking something doesn’t support it.” Love Skate Mag did a series of interviews about why all the best skateboard magazines end up going out of print.
Chris Mulhern uploaded another teaser for his upcoming Love Park documentary, 15th & JFK. His comments also seem to indicate that it may end up being a series. “I won’t be able to tell this story in two hours or less, which was my original plan.”
Here’s the winter 2013 edition of Jeremy Elkin’s raw tapes. That double-set pole jam spot Aaron skates at the start is insane. The legend Alex Mosley tried to clear the entire double-set off it ♥ ♥ ♥
75 degrees on Saturday, and none of you scored a Missed Connection? So disappointed in everyone.
Interesting time capsule: Scenes from the DNA Distribution (Alien & Habitat) catalog, circa 2005. I think Waste still has a bunch of the Aesthetics catalogs — been meaning to scan them for like…the past five years.
Want another time capsule? TWS uploaded the first-ever issue of 411.
The moral of the story in this sorta bad / sorta borderline still readable Wall Street Journal article about skate pilgrimages to China is: stop snitching.
Free has an interview with Gustav Tonnesen, perennial #QSTOP10 fave.
Attn: All SVA & Pratt sculpture majors. Jenkem has a chill feature about the world’s most high-con D.I.Y. spot.
Hate it or love it, The Bunt’s new one is with Jamie Thomas.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Let’s give it to the end of Celtics-Bucks Q4.
Quote of the Week: “Could I do the fried shrimp…just with some toast?” — Kevin Tierney’s Diner Order (fyi, the waiter refused to serve him fried shrimp and toast.)
