Sorry 4 da wait. Let’s keep her going. Final part will be up New Year’s Eve.
Our friend Danny Weiss was recently involved in a serious accident. Any help with his medical costs is appreciated. Get well soon Weiss.
Here’s the circa ~2007, pre-Bronze montage Peter Sidlauskas made to the eight-minute entirety of “Purple Rain.” Features a Shut-era Shawn Powers, a young Gonyon, a hesh B.D., and a bowler hat Derrick Z. Shout out to Esteban for re-uploading :)
Zered has a quick minute of line-heavy new footage out.
“Get that piece of…camera out of my face.” Another VHS edition of Lurk NYC’s “N.Y. Times” series is now live. Daytime midtown footage + lo-fi picture quality = ♥♥♥
Part one of the Josh Kalis “Video History” series is now live. Kind of touches on some of the same stuff as his Epicly Later’d, but a bit more personal and anecdote heavy. Amazing that so much of that early nineties footage is so well preserved.
Germany’s Solo mag caught up with Pontus Alv for an extra-detailed interview about the Polar video, the classic “r full videos #relevant?!”-discussion, the origins of the title, and how he still hates the song he skated to in Mad Circle’s Five Flavors.
So far, the only plus side to extended Instagram videos is this J.B. Gillett warm-up clip.
Skateboard Story interviewed Philly Santosuosso from Humidity Skateshop.
Nollie pop lord and former Inkwell office resident Brendan Carroll’s Static 5 part is now online, aanndd Zach Moore put Mike Heikkila’s Transplants part on YouTube as well.
An allegiance to track pants unlike any other in history. Also a pretty great part :)
My BFF Thando just dropped the video for his first single. Video by Adam Zhu.
Upon hearing Prince had died, one of the first things that popped to mind was Chris Milic’s It’s a Secret part. I YouTubed it once I was back at a computer, and the comments revealed that I was not the only one: “This made me start listening to Prince more.” Everyone loves a lazy discussion about the #importance of skate videos in 2016, but they still leave long-lasting imprints when done right. Whether they’re watched off an old tube TV, a computer screen, or a cell phone really doesn’t matter.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Are the Celtics really our favorite team in the east now? Is Tim Duncan an impending six-time Champion after the Steph injury?

Not a great week in music. R.I.P. Billy Paul.
Day zero and beyond ♥ TF @ 1: Ten Years of Quartersnacks available now.
HD video blog #16 from Johnny Wilson and friends.
Los Angeles-based video blog from Andrew (?!?!) Wilson?!?!
Bob Shirt’s ten-minute video interview with Joey Alvarez is earnest and informative. He runs through the history of little-known companies like C.R.E.A.M and Metropolitan, shares some Banks stories, and talks about Keith Harrison — whose twenty-year-old Seaport line predicted an entire sub-sect of L.E.S. park street style.
New B-sides clip from the Report Potholes / In Crust We Trust squad. #jersey
Someone remixed all of Tiago’s [park] footage from the D.C. tour video, which includes what is more than likely the greatest switch pop shove it ever done in human history.
Here’s a promo for the Bailar video that includes Shredmaster Keith shredding around Soho. Video due out next month. Looks like a good time.
On that same note…new one from the Sex Hippies squad in Western Mass.
I’m guessing you probably caught on to the new #streetlife-heavy F.A./Hockey clip? Pretty sure Ben K. is the first one to ever slide that rail off the eight-stair at CBS.
When the recent past isn’t as recent as you think: Bobby Worrest recaptured. Back 3 curb cut + backside 180 switch crook from Right Foot Forward is an all-time great.
Five trick fix from switch and nollie pop king, Brendan Carroll.
Menace is back! …in enamel pin form.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: We’re big on assists at the Sports Desk. Sad this guy is spending the foreseeable future in playoff spot-chasing territory.
Quote of the Week: “If English was my first language, I’d be a famous comedian.” — Chuck MVP
^^^Best sports rap song in who knows how long, but that’s a biased opinion from someone who discovered NBA basketball during peak Penny/Shaq Orlando era ;)
We made it! Just one day shy of October — when it becomes truly embarrassing to post an “End of Summer” edit. Not that we haven’t been late on the Labor Day deadline or entirely missed an End of Summer clip before (obviously in 2009, the year multiple viewers of the ten-year clip pointed out as the turning point for when the party became a crucial part of QS office culture), but it’d be too sad to enter autumn without bidding da summa farewell.
In our defense, these past four months had multiple extracurricular video projects: “56 Tricks,” “Core” (some of the better iPhone angles from it made their way into this one), the all-too-important TM101 anniversary clip, and obviously the ten-year edit.
Features Matt Perez [finally] graduating high school, Antonio Durao, Johnny Wilson, Andrew Wilson, Hjalte Halberg, Andre Page, Chandy Khon, Cyrus Bennett, Alexander Mosley, Jesse Alba, Daniel Kim, Will Robson-Scott, Jack Sabback, Brendan Carroll, Mike Gigliotti, C.J, Genesis Evans, Troy Stilwell, Tober, and a mini Connor Champion part. Contributing filmers: Andre Page & John Diaz.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the shop and bought some gear this weekend. Everything should be available in the webstore by mid-September. If you want to check out the IRL #TFREPORT wall, it’ll be up for a bit at New Fancy Foods on Leonard Street and Broadway (a few blocks from Black Hubba.) Shout out to Street Fam.
These dudes out in Philly rigged their own wear test video of the Quartersnacks dunk.
SML Talk runs down the list of notable fakie heelflips done by someone besides Weiger. Add in every single person who has done one in a game of S-K-A-T-E, as it’s the most respectable annoying trick you could possibly do. (The most annoying not-respectable trick you could do is a nollie backside bigspin, obvs.)
More Static IV follow-ups: Slam City Skates has an interview with Aaron Herrington, and Street Canoe has an interview with Brendan Carroll, where he controversially proclaims his love for TF West flat over its eastern counterpart.
Aside from standard-issue Tompkins antics, this website’s second most-discussed brand of skateboarding is EuroTech™. Therefore we are contractually obligated to point you in the direction of this Route One interview with Javier Sarmiento. *Cue nostalgic music supervision*
Ah, ah, ah, but the remix…
Some dudes making a NY/NJ/Boston video edited their teaser video to Keef, but more importantly, is that low metal loading dock ledge at ~1:16 actually in NJ? Where?
Gonna start saving for next summer’s France trip now.
Quote of the Week: “There’s nothing worse than a hot girl on a cleanse.” — Barnes
Yes, this has been the least exciting lead-up week to a Jeezy album in QS history…
