The Say You Swear podcast interviewed Naquan Rollings — one of the most prolific videographers today — with guest commentary from Father Bop throughout.

“You’re a smart person. Smart people get uncomfortable couches.” Village Psychic posted up part two of Lurker Lou and Mark Suciu’s journey through lesser-known Bronx spots.

Time On Our Hands is a full-length New York video from Abi Teixeira featuring many familiar faces, great make-you-wanna-skate-with-your-friends vibes, and some good tunes. Decent bit of Brianna Delaney footage, too :)

Krooked’s “Don’t Stop Featuring Una Farrar” dropped just as the Thrasher staff clocked out of the office last Friday. Basically an Una part + cameos from the rest of the team, Frank Gerwer bringing tre shuvs back, and the first official bits of Andrew Wilson footy in a Krooked project :)

‘THE BUTTERFLY’ — The Latest Video From Violet

Bill Strobeck’s Violet imprint just dropped their first longish-form video since the inaugural Violet promo from last spring. “THE BUTTERFLY” is an Efron Danzig part (real name, for those who don’t know) intro’d by a montage from the rest of the team: Troy Gipson, Kyle Teh, Seven Strong, Auguste Bouznad, Patrick O’Mara and Kris Brown.

It’s a video where you can feel that the participants didn’t spend months arguing about what song fits best for what part. Friendships were not bent to near breaking points in the video’s creation, and footage was not treated with absolute sanctity, because after all, it’s only footage. You can always get more.

Fashion Mondaine” earned the title of 2023’s first great party video, and Chase Walker and co’s STILL feels like the next one.
