Rezza Will Be Starring in the New Season of ‘Game of Thrones’ — Bronze & Alltimers’ Bronztimers Tour Video

To celebrate their long-time-coming collaboration, Alltimers and Bronze embarked on an ol’ fashioned east coast tour through our nation’s capital, the city of brotherly love, the city of firsts, the city where they filmed The Departed — and how could we forget Albany?!

Throughout their skateboard hijinx, they face many ups and downs as they come of age: front-flipping security guards, excruciating gutterballs, rollercoaster casino runs, many McFeely bangers, and shoes of years’ past yearning for that elusive Sidlauskas John Hancock.

And they emerge all the stronger for their tribulations, towing accolades that range from Olympic medals to farmland ownership to 11-figure deals from late-aughts clothiers. Five stars.

Frozen in Carbonite Presents: Song of the Summer x Video Part of the Summer 2023

Words by Frozen in Carbonite

This year, the owners of my local bar revived an institution from The Before Times™: music trivia.

I call it music trivia, but it mostly consists of “name that tune” — the DJ plays 12 snippets (usually in a category like Eighties, Nineties, Songs about Beer ‘n Trucks) and you have to name the artist and title. Eighties is my shit; country my achilles heel. ANYWAY, this was the first time playing without drinking. Whenever I go to a bar, if they don’t have legit NA beers, I get a Red Bull and some appetizers because I feel like a dummy hanging out for hours and not spending any money. You pay for the experience. The ambience.

ANYWAY, I won ten bucks. I was psyched, but even more psyched at the end of the night when I saw the name the bartender entered for my tab.

Let It Breathe

No way you haven’t seen it but also no other way to begin the round-up: On Friday, Bronze dropped the second edition of “Bronze TV Channel 56” over on Thrasher. Includes full-ish parts from many staples of the Bronze franchise. That CBS ollie into the pit is absolutely insane.

Updated the Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map for the first time in 2023: Tony Zhang’s Purgatory: The Sproul Video, is a video video filmed entirely at UC Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza, referred to in the YouTube description as “the worst spot in Berkeley.” (“Purgatory” is a fantastic way to describe the spots we waste away the most at.)

Jake Johnson runs through his history with no complies alongside an accompanying sizzle reel for Skate Jawn.

Christian Henry has a new, seven-minute part out with a hall of fame Columbus Park trick right in the middle. Not on the rail! Not on the two block! And it’s a noseslide!

There’s Sexhippies Albany edit featuring the Vargas bros and the rest of the team.

Footage Is Footage

You can’t jam the pole and then be mad people are skating the polejam ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Spitfire Wheels: Bringing People Together. Mark Gonzalez skates around downtown Manhattan with Max Palmer, Gus Gordon (!), Nick Matthews, Karim Callender + more. (Why does it always seem like everybody else’s downtown session if better than yours?) Really hope somebody got a photo of Karim’s crook at Rector Street. Almost made the screengrab the headline photo.

Price to Pay is a new Texas-based video by Andy Nguyen with a ton of New York footage in it. The whole crew makes a pilgrimage to the Canal Fountain, and there’s a Trung guest trick in there ;)

Deep Dive — Dick Rizzo & Paul Young on Hi8 and East Coast Influences

Video, Interview & Intro by Farran Golding
Headline Photo by Tyler Cichy

The shared output of Dick Rizzo and Paul Young is cine-literature — one with touch points and tributes surrounding many of what we could call “heritage” east coast texts.

We touched on exactly that in regards to the pair’s Hi8 Half Cab project for Vans last summer. However, we took the investigation further, digging through the tapes and speaking to both Richie and Paul about the nuance, folklore, cellar doors and sessions with Uncle Freddy that underwrite their ode to what came before.
