Was contemplating taking a four-day weekend and not posting Monday Links until Wednesday, but got enough people in the office to cruise around the internet for a bit. Russ got MVP, Phil got fired and Tyshawn fakie ollied a trash can in front of Supreme since the last Monday Links post, and all of those things feel like they happened a month ago…(Don’t know who took the photo above btw.)
Quick one of Sean Pablo at the Brooklyn Banks.
Omg, Kohlton and a Logan sighting in the same clip. Do we begin a change.org petition for a joint part? New summer iPhone montage from Genny.
There are a bunch of Alltimers boys in the Blue Collar Hardware video, made by the same minds as the Green Apple videos a la secretly some of the most influential videos of the past ten years / the first influence Peter cites in any Bronze-related interview / lol at people in comments calling it a Bronze bite.
Romain Batard uploaded a “Summer Trip to New York” montage with one of the cooler recent lines at Fredrick Douglas Plaza. Also, why does it seem like that spot almost exclusively appears in “_____ Trip to New York” videos?
LurkNYC put together another Hotel Blue montage + another NY Times outtakes clip.
Theories of Atlantis got all urban planner on us and broke down Robert Moses’ circumstantial influence on New York skate spots — though not sure Stuy-Town is really an actual spot for normal humans.
Seems like it has been a big past couple of years for spots resurrecting. Here’s an interview about the effort to restore London’s Southbank undercroft to its original form from pre-2004. (Small Banks helllllooooo.)
You probably caught this one already: Nick Ferro dropped a rad part for Grand Collection. No rapper did anything too cool with that beat and it’s sad :(
All the illicit uploads kept getting deleted, but Yaje’s part from Riddles is now online.
Tennyson came through with yet another 411 remix, this time of Kareem Campbell and Donger. Essential viewing, especially the Kareem demo / contest footage. Wow.
Both of these are heavy on the art and minimal on the tricks, but maybe you’re into that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ … Krooked in NYC, and a longform “One Night in New York” Cons commercial with Aaron Herrington and Brian Delatorre.
