Bronx O.G. and Papi Brand capo Angel Fonseca has a new part out entitled “No Need For Closure.” Love the night clips, love the deep spot digging, and always an inspiration 🫡

Decent bit of New York footage + an ender in Heitor Da Silva’s new part for Adidas.

Carson Reuther has a great six-minute Philly edit out featuring Brian O’Dwyer, Matt Militano, Kevin Liedtke + more to commemorate the closing of Fairman’s Skateshop, which shut its doors several weeks ago. 47 years has got to be the longest running American skate shop, right? Anyone have another? (Guessing it’s in California, if so?)

“The Bethlehem Steel Corporation was an American steelmaking company headquartered in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

We are the rockstars.” Jenkem interviewed our friend Gianluca Quagliano about his NTS podcast focused on skate video soundtracks, Skatemuzik.

“It’s odd that this is how things have evolved — that the social media post now hosts the groundbreaking and gobsmacking.” Simple Magic dives into Tyshawn Jones’ social media strategy in light of him throwing a 360 flip over a thing he kickflipped on a Thrasher cover on the timeline. The numbers don’t lie 👑

Do you remember the Four Loko of transportation? The 2020 Revel scooters? You can buy them on Facebook Marketplace, but you probably shouldn’t.
