Jake Church — Yardsale ‘YS 2’ Raw Clips & Offcuts

Around the time of YS 2‘s official release, the QS office was winded from year-end #content, and on a much-needed vacation. This, unfortunately, resulted in the new release desk being unable to give Yardsale’s second video the analytic accolades that it deserved. There are only a select few video series that feel wholly of their own world, and the YS videos syphon your eyes into a dimension away from their contemporaries.

In consolation, the Yardsale boys were kind enough to allow us to share some raw footage from Jake Church’s ender part with everyone.

Roman Lisivka’s ‘Métronome Noir’ Part

Any skateboard scholar knows that EuroTech™ is no longer a movement bound by geography or era. Nearly twenty years since the release of its definitive piece of scripture and having gone global in the time since, EuroTech™ remains one of those things that you just know it when you see it — the confidence, the power, the grace with which one maneuvers a skateboard. Tricks are perfect, but not at the expense of having personality.

Roman Lisivka has been on the front lines of evolving this precise tradition of skateboarding for some time now (note the precision on a certain fakie varial flip out early on …sheesh.) Us in the States first caught wind of Roman’s skating via his 10/10 line choreography at Prague’s Stalin Plaza, but he has been posted out in Barcelona for the past year. “Métronome Noir” is his latest part for a new pursuit, and it carries a dedication to black tees not seen since the nascency of Gucci Mane’s career ;)

Midtown On The Weekend, Like Usual — Best of 2020

It’s not that choosing music for the annual recycled footage holiday party was harder this time around — Pop Smoke was a given, the year’s most incessant Drake song was somehow a creature comfort reminiscent of simpler years soundtracked by incessant Drake songs, and Lil’ Baby + Dugg were basically our government for the past 12 months. But it stands to reason that in a normal year, with parties and bad nightclubs providing a different barometer, maybe, just maybe hearing “W.A.P” in a crowded room full of humans hammered at 2 A.M. would’ve elevated its stature, and thus to the soundtrack of this year’s “Best of” clip.

Alas, in 2020, we were robbed of hearing “W.A.P” in a crowded room full of humans hammered at 2 A.M. (Tried to get Josh to call his part “Wet Ass Part” but it didn’t stick.)

Josh Velez — ‘Just Josh’ Remix

Yesterday on QS was a day about celebrating our friends — those special people who bring such eternal warmth to our hearts.

Today, we’re doing the opposite. Like the psalm says, “Fuck everybody” ;)

Jk obvs.

But Josh and Eric Cruz did put together an express version of Josh’s “Quaranteam” part from last month, condensing it down to six minutes, with no footage of Josh’s stupid friends ♥

Happy Thanksgiving everybody, love y’all :)

Thankful For Jersey Dave

For a few years, Thanksgiving edits commemorating under-sung heroes dear to our hearts were becoming a habit around here.

In 2016, we were thankful for Keith.

In 2017, we were thankful for John.

In 2018, we thanked Barnes for his contributions to society.

In 2019, we were ungrateful fucks.

Maybe it was the rigors of running a multinational skateboard media conglomerate. Maybe it was the crushing, psychic anxiety that the world was bound to unravel in a few months.
