There’s no reason to believe a Muska Epicly Later’d is going down anytime soon. This comprehensive hour-and-forty-minute interview with him on Anthony Shetler’s podcast is the best you’re going to get for a while.
Fakie Hill Bomb’s interview with #forward #thinking skatepark designer, Søren Enevoldsen, is great. “In terms of skateboarding, all you basically need for a skatespot to be succesful, is a couple of granite benches placed on a somewhat large flatground area with a smooth hard surface in an inner city context.” …yet somehow, this concept gets lost for the ramp-to-ledge skatepark designers we get. Just build this pls thx.
On that note, it’s nice to see that the Sants spot in Barcelona has experienced a rebirth with new, skater-made ledges recently. Looks like the Spanish version of Stalin Plaza.
Going from running a skate shop to being a hired mercenary who protects freight liners from Somali pirates must be one of the more drastic career changes to ever happen.

SMLTalk runs down the soundtrack to Brandon Biebel’s career. “Living It Up” + Biebel is without question one of the top five #musicsupervision decisions in the history of skateboard videos. Nollie flip the four block in Atlanta + “If you looking for me homie I’m in the ATL” Jeezy sync is perfect too.
If T.F. West is the new T.F. and T.F. 20 on 20th & 2nd is the new T.F. West (but on the east side), what does that make regular T.F?
Skateboarders and being #responsible, as it stands in 2015.
Shout out to the homie Baker for pointing me in the direction of this vegan skate shoe brand from the mid-nineties’ video that I’ve never seen before, at least in full. It’s oddly very contemporary, and very enjoyable. #very.
