Etienne Gagne — E.T. For Nothing

Videos & Words by Zach Baker

Making this only sucked when we took it seriously. I mean, I guess we took it as seriously as the devices, times, and quality of filmer called for. We were in New York, it was shitty out, and the best thing to do in the winter here is hang out in warm dark bars with the windows all foggy.

We couldn’t do that.

We hung out in some social distance huts a couple times. Don’t know if you’ve had the chance to eat a tuna melt with a knife and fork inside of a fort / snowbank with mittens on and numb toes in the dark at 4:45 in the afternoon — but it sucks ass. Our routine was drive around and skate horseshit when there wasn’t snow on the ground. Then, we’d usually get takeout, and eat it in the car, then sit in the parked car drinking beer for sometimes really long times.

YEOOO! The Will Marshall Crazy T Remix

We have posted Mr. Marshall’s “YEEEO!” on the QS IG story every Friday at midnight for about two years now. It has been a way to usher in the upcoming weekend; hearing it releases a jolt of serotonin. It means skating, friends, good times, laughs, and maybe an adult beverage or two are ahead. For at least a few proceeding seconds, you forfeit the right to be upset: “YEEEEO!”

(The clip is from Dime’s Knowing Mixtape 2 video, to answer perhaps the most-DM’d question in the QS inbox.)

But Will is more than just an announcer of good times. As you likely know, he is profoundly insane at skateboarding, and to commemorate his talents + wrap this summer season of fun, we have enlisted the services of Tyler Warren — no stranger to the curation of good times himself — to remix Will’s footage from the past two or three years.

Alltimers’ ‘E.T. & Dustin’ Video Is Now Live

Thrasher just posted up the first fullish Alltimers video in a minute — yes, a part’s worth of footage from two skaters, plus a bunch of cameos is fullish by 2021 standards. It bounces back and forth between Europe, both coasts, and clips from extended stays at home, stringing together the old world of travel-friendly skateboarding with today’s for one last hurrah: “Remember when it was like this?”

Alltimers got hacked!

“Summer Trip to New York” season has obviously been affected by COVID travel bans, yet it has not full-on stopped skate travel into the city. It’s a really interesting time to visit New York, and videos from right now will stand out a lot down the line. Can’t tell where these dudes are from, but enjoyed every bit of “Pull Up,” a new nine-minute trip edit from Juan Reyna. (They got the memo that Times Square is fun right now.)

“The one thing that has stuck out in my mind from early on was that clip of you backflipping off the Love Park sign after that contest. What the hell were you thinking?” Josh Stewart interviewed the forever inspirational Jahmal Williams for Germany’s Solo magazine.
