As long as you walk outside and hear “waaaaaa waaa waaa” coming from car speakers every thirty seconds, the summer is going to keep getting extended. This Insta remix of QS office fave, Ruben Spelta, should help you stay stoked for the rest of the week — though why not use, like, an actual M.J. song. Euros, man.
New York is a big place and it’s always refreshing to watch videos dominantly filmed outside of the L.E.S. Park/Williamsburg/Columbus Park groupthink bubble. Angel Fonseca’s new 17-minute video, “Stay Fufu,” chronicles the extended fam of all the locals at the Bronx Courthouse.
This is the exact opposite of Dime’s “Speed Challenge.”
German fashion and art mag, 032c, profiled Jason Dill and Fucking Awesome.
A question that has gently been whispered among conspiracy theorists for years now: Did the United States government fake Tony Hawk landing the 900?
“As I watched I began to wonder if he had any right to film and share what he did. Then I remembered his tenure in LOVE, his legacy of videos, and what it’s like to be a skateboarder in a space.” Nice to have another skate website with actual words on it in this day and age. Our bud Adam Abada started a site called Stoke of the Week, which is, simply put, a weekly log of what single skate video got him psyched that past week. The first edition is re: Brian Panebianco’s “Love Park Photographer” short.
..aanndd here’s a teaser for Chris Mulhern’s upcoming Love Park doc, “15th & JFK.”
Transworld interviewed the nerd behind Bob Shirt.
Fred Gall and Taji ventured out to an abandoned building in New Jersey that contains a natural full pipe. Avid QS readers might find it familiar ;)
A French New Wave rendition of a “Summer Trip to New York” montage. Or something? And some guys from Spokane did a …Summer Trip to New York™.
A 8mm film test montage in New York with some familiar faces and a song I muted after .3 seconds, but I’m partial to any Skooly and Thug collaboration, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
QS Sports Desk: Shout out Lebron. Sorry for rooting against you so many times. #2011mavs4ever. (Don’t read the replies unless you want your blood to boil.)
Quote of the Week:
So stoked that the Muska Epicly Later’d and the Tom Cruise coke movie drop the same week :)
