Egg Noodles & Ketchup

Has anyone coined the term “Boardwalk crust” yet? Like, it’s regular crust, but windier with more weathered wood. (The Pandora’s Box video, Vague‘s “Maritime” edit, and “Jacky Biarritz” are the most obvious recent examples.) Anyway, Devon Connell made a full-length video out of Atlantic City, NJ that fits the bill, and Skate Jawn has Jason Klotz’s part from it.

Some raw iPhone footy via Naquan and crew in anticipation of the summer.

Alex Greenberg uploaded a quick HD edit of a bunch of the Homies Network dudes.

The Art of the Intro — Five Favorite Parts* With Bobshirt

Intro, Video & Interview by Farran Golding

Given the timestamp on Tim Anderson’s Bobshirt interviews, you might expect to find a somewhat definitive “Five Favorite Parts” of the 1990s here. However, the Five Faves selection process isn’t easy and that filter proved too tough even for one of the decade’s most reliable scholars. Tim’s enthusiasm for skate videos also extends beyond that perceived “golden era.” (Although, Tim confirmed that Gino Iannucci in Trilogy and Dick Rizzo in Mother would have ranked.)

Quartersnacks has, on occasion, turned to our fellow media nodes for “Five Favorite Parts.” It’s a fun spin on the format, but this installment comes further out of left field, honing in on Tim’s favorite introductory sections from skate videos.

Remember Keith? He’s Back. In Tech Deck Form.

Insta loosie comps have been like 20% of what gets posted on here in recent years (media landcape ‘n shit, yaknow), but this one rules: someone mashed together 11 minutes of Steel McAdam and Coles Bailey Insta loosies. Obvs biased, but can’t wait ’til both of them are pro ❤️

We’re all on the same page that Keith having his name and face on a Tech Deck is maybe a bigger life hammer than him having his name and face on an actual skateboard, right? What a time to be alive.

Anthony Pappalardo the Writer interviewed Amy Ellington about KCDC, twenty years in Williamsburg, and running the longest-operating female-owned skate shop in the United States. (Also a former employer of the aforementioned Keith!)

This Year Halloween Fell On A…

Sorry, sometimes the headline is too obvious to resist 💋

WOW2G is a new 22-minute video by Eighty Twenty, Hell World, and the Travel Skateshop family. Half-New York, half-Jersey spots. Aron Moloney (first full part) and Derek Thor (second-to-last part) both crush it. The pinches on those switch front crooked grinds!

Also a decent dose of Jersey City footy in Neema Joorabchi’s new B-roll montage.

If you haven’t seen Fred Gall’s “Out There” on Thrasher, it fucking rules. Make yourself a nice sandwich and throw on his Bobshirt interview from 2018 afterwards.

Who Da Neighbors

“That person next to you — whatever thing wrong you might have with them, it might be big or small — let that shit go. It doesn’t matter.” ♥♥♥

Long distance relationships are never easy, and to help soothe the heartache, Jesse Alba made a full surprise Nolan Benfield part with cameos from Cyrus ‘n them.

The full, 38-minute NY/NJ-based Sportsmanshit video is now live via Skate Jawn. A lot of “totally forgot about that spot”-reactions watching this one. Very fun, the whole way through :)
