Thanks to everyone who grabbed something from the webstore over the weekend. Holiday QS goods should have made their way to most U.S. shops by now. Arriving in Canada + Japan this week. Europe + everywhere else next week. Thank you for the support during these shaky times ♥

If you missed it in July, now would be a good time to read Farran’s #longform Slam City interview with Tom Knox about …lines.

“It is like Tom Knox is doing missionary work, faithfully showing that London is skateable. He ardently skates his home surroundings, teaching us, like a prophet finding a spring of water in the desert.” — Everyday Hybridity re: the spots in Tom Knox’s “Atlantic Drift” part.

Thrasher posted the interview with Leo, Cher and Stephen about Glue Skateboards online.

Dancing in the Street

Kareem by Atiba. Put this in the MoMA.

Phew.

If you have a few extra bucks, please contribute to Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight organization, which combats voter suppression in Georgia — a place that you’re going to be hearing about a lot these next two months. Shout out to our Georgia readers ♥
