Cracks & Crevices

Nah Yeah is an all Long Island video by Duran Murphy, which is a twenty-minute deep dive into a scene that we too often only associate with the most obvious names + an annual trip to the Rosyln Banks/pool. It’s also crazy how much a dude switching between éS, Etnies, Vans & Osiris in a single part stands out in 2019. Also, shout out to Mook.

A bit north and to the left, we have Concerned Citizen, a rad 15-minute video filmed all around upstate New York: Rochester, Elmira, Binghamton, Ithaca, et al. Noticed a lot of Homegrown tees and boards, so assuming they have something to do with it :) We really need to make it back up there next summer. “What the FUCK does ‘really’ mean?”

#QSTOP10 — November 29, 2019

Everyone got a light pause from skateboarding’s award season this past week (unless you were doing a deep dive into Baker 4, which obvs isn’t eligible for the countdown until it’s out *officially* — not trying to have Reynolds show up to the QS office with a sack of doorknobs.) This one was able to dig in places outside of the Thrasher homepage universe, and yeah, while those Rowan Davis and Ben Lawrie clips appeared in Disc a few months ago, that raw files Geoff Campbell dropped might be the overall highlight of the past week on the skate internet. Both of those kids rip, in a very cool way at that :)

Have a good one.

Who Got The Link?

“That has been my wallet since I got it from Alien in 1994.” If you are under the age of 25, Fred Gall’s wallet is older than you, as per the TWS “Skatehoarders” video where he runs through his board collection. Also a reminder that Freddy’s Bobshirt interview is still one of the best anthologies of skate storytelling from the past decade.

Sometimes, a good vibe is all you need :) “Ceelo Champs in the Field” is a really rad 13-minute video via a bunch of dudes out of Raleigh, North Carolina. It’s comforting to know that these types of close-knit friends videos will always exist (and have always existed) for as long as skateboarding does. There’s a decent bit of New York footage, too.

“Third Worst Video” is a fun edit by Lloyd Richards, filmed almost entirely in the city, and is def not the third worst video. Sk8rs ♥ that Tweet song.

Sometimes a photo does a trick more justice than the footage. You’re typically seeing anything on a magazine cover as a photo before the video comes out. Everyone knew it was coming in that Milton part, but seeing that kickflip in motion was actually something else. You felt it in your chest.

Other things in there were just so insane that you couldn’t help but laugh.
