Supreme London has a new video out that feels like a weird commercial you’d see at the end of a non-411 video magazine circa 2000, but in a good way.
In actual early-2000s non-411 video magazine news, Skate.ly uploaded Progression Video Magazine #2. It includes parts from Aaron Suski (shout to Rawkus), Pat Smith, Airto Jackson (who was a bit ahead of his time, especially by east coast standards), and a definitely ahead of his time, NY-heavy section from Dave Mayhew, which has Rodney Torres cameos and an insane ender at the Banks (it was unfortunately forgotten for our rap video skate part post.) In all honesty, if resources were no issue, the one dream article that would be perfect for QS is one of those “oral histories” about The Storm, the most misunderstood skate video of all time.
You know skateboarding is crazy when pro skaters have to release videos addressing their leaked dick pics. Note Europeans’ fervor regarding the suppression of sexuality in America throughout the Hella Clips comments. “Don’t worry, it’s fuckin’ art, dude.”
Rihanna loves Ishod Wair’s socks. She’s perfect. Also, Ishod has a new video interview about his Sabotage 3 part.

Wow, this guy really wants a new board.
To nobody’s surprise, somebody combined a scooter and a pogo stick (you can get money for anything these days.) Can we expect a Lance Mountain Goldfish sequel?

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Ricky Rubio’s double behind-the-back dribble drive. P.S. Some genius made a song about the QS Sports Desk’s favorite player.
Quote of the Week: “This place is Ted Narrow.” — Tyler Tufty regarding the width of a bar that Ted Barrow was working at.
A remix of Mark Suciu’s Sabotage part is going on The Skateboard Mag site tomorrow, so you guys can continue arguing. Hopefully, it’s not edited to any songs off The Blueprint 3.
