See everyone at One Police Plaza at 1 P.M. tomorrow, June 2. Flyer here.

It’s a strange time in our history to be solely concerned with skateboarding, so NY Mag has a running feature on how you can help support the fight against police brutality in America, which includes a list of organizations you can donate to if you have some spare coins. They provide context one what each one does, and you can choose what speaks the most to your heart. A lot have received overwhelming amounts of contributions, and are asking that donations now be directed elsewhere: the civil rights page on Charity Navigator is another helpful resource to find one.

We have donated to Campaign Zero, which advocates for the policy goals of Black Lives Matter to end police violence in America. You can read about their mission here.

So, um, skate content…

Bags of Sand

Broadcasting live from the Lefrak City building ♬ If you haven’t listened to it yet, the Bronze 56k radio mixtape is incredible. The music is mostly time-tested hits from their videos (including a F.C.C-mandated run-back of “Dap You Up“), but the commercials are gold. Laughed out loud 10+ times on first listen.

Listen to Hjalte’s beautiful voice on the latest episode of The Bunt ♥ Stingwater also made a GROeTH remix as an accompaniment to the interview.

A Day Late — J.P. Blair’s ‘***420 Vid***’

While we were undergoing our own 420 2020 festivities yesterday, J.P. Blair released “***420 Vid***.” It includes a bunch of 2016-2019 footage that was on the periphery of Bronze projects from that time, cameos from the NJ Skateshop dudes, and a full part from Jacob Gottlieb at the end, featuring a revisitation of his #viral Tribeca moment from some time back ;)

The video should bring a joyful tear to the eye of anyone who holds a special place in their heart for J.P’s old VX edits. (Or any QS reader who has been with us long enough to remember the days when Kevin Tierney’s claims that J.P’s video was due out “next month” for four years comprised of 50% of the jokes on here ♥)

These Days & Times

The predictions were true. The quarantine has everyone inside making #content — this was one of the most extensive link lists for a Monday update in a while. How sustainable it is? Who knows. Boil the Ocean is already speculating on what will happen if we enter a COVID-19 induced footage drought, e.g. will Thrasher be forced to only post “Classics” videos like how ESPN plays old games during off-seasons.

Until then…
