It may have been a slow news week around here, but the greater skateboard internet ecosystem has been booming.
On an average week, there will be about twelve or thirteen suggestions for the Top 10 written on the whiteboard affixed to the back wall of the QS office. On Thursday morning, we’ll gather around, drink coffee and pick the two or three that fell short of tugging at our heartstrings, and then loosely arrange the rest, giving special privilege to noseslides. This past week, the whiteboard ran out of space — there were twenty three nominees for Top 10 clips of the week. If the entire skateboard internet goes on blackout these next seven days, we’ll still be able to put together a countdown with the B-roll from this one.
We’ve gotten some pushback from the “this is too hammers heavy for QS”-crowd re: Hollywood High clips before, but we’re not particularly in the business of denying anybody who uses three Pimp C songs in a part their shine ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Have a good weekend ♥
