11 Is The New 4

“She’s like, ‘Are you that exciting that somebody is going to follow you all day?’ And I’m like, ‘Hell yeah.'” There’s a bit of #fomo with each slice of content that involves friends abroad these days. Pocket‘s “Followed” segment kicked it with Hjalte Halberg for a day. Yes there are noseslides, yes we miss his beautiful Danish voice. “Ah, ok, fuck.”

Who knows what love is” is a fifteen-minute homie video by Lorenzo Frijas. 2/3 Bay Area footage, 1/3 New York, all good vibes the whole way through ♥

Jahmir Brown is the latest guest on The Bunt.

Still devastated after finding out that his Yeah Right! part was fake back in September. Never thought Takeshi 6ix9ine would be the one to ruin all of our childhoods…

Crawled under a rock Friday morning? Dime’s Knowing Mixtape Volume 2 is live.

Safe to say that Marcello won the Pyramid Ledges best trick contest that Jenkem has going on. Wow.

Rashad Murray’s part in the D.C-based Bottleneck video rips.

Can We Have A Pool Dad?

“I would be on tour with all these guys and that late 90s San Diego, hip-hop style of culture was ruling at the time. And I was just a kid from Northern California who liked My Bloody Valentine.” There’s a really nice interview with Jerry Hsu about life after sponsors in …GQ? Jk, Noah knows what he’s doing ♥

Dylan Holderness put together a rad ten-minute video from ten days in Puerto Rico. Shout out to having wild horses chilling in the background of city plazas. We went to that spot and didn’t see any damn horses!

The text is in German, but the dudes from Irregular skate mag put up a supplementary article to their “Summer Trip To New York” clip that was linked last Monday, and it includes a ton of really sick photos. Shout out to everyone going the extra mile in the #legacy #content realm. Tricks can be A.B.D. — but everyone’s story is different yaknow.

The fashion mags are onboard for the cause — Dazed ran an article about the cultural significance of the Tompkins asphalt, and Paper did the same. We cannot stress enough that this is so much bigger than skateboarding, and more about the community that this small patch of asphalt has cultivated. → Please sign and share the petition if you have yet to do so. Actually, if you read QS and haven’t signed it, please focus your board and computer. (And no, we haven’t heard an update back from Parks yet, but are hoping for some news this week.)

What A Time What A Year

Thanks to everyone who supported the QS for Nike SB collaboration, and all of you who came out to the first annual Quartersnacks Cup on Saturday. We have some pairs left in the webstore, though you’ll have better luck on sizes if you’re going for a navy pair ;) Use the code “MONDAYLINKS” to reward yourself for reading the words on this website, and get free U.S. shipping on the shoes until midnight tonight E.S.T. Everything else you gotta cover the shipping on though.

We uploaded the IG story of the contest as a placeholder. Official recap coming soon.

Max Palmer went pro + Aidan Mackey went pro.

“Drifting toward the childhood and the feminine. It’s not always about masculinity, and drinking, and fucking skater guys…Everybody has that inner child or feminine side. It’s cool to embrace that.” Shout out Genny, Conor and Humble. The Fader did a rad feature on their operation that reads different than much of the “small skate brand” stories you see out there. Show them some love.

Surprised that lines through the entire block aren’t more of a thing in footage from Big Screen Plaza. Bret Gregory’s Hombre Hardware part is a good time.

“Just liking something doesn’t support it.” Love Skate Mag did a series of interviews about why all the best skateboard magazines end up going out of print.

Chris Mulhern uploaded another teaser for his upcoming Love Park documentary, 15th & JFK. His comments also seem to indicate that it may end up being a series. “I won’t be able to tell this story in two hours or less, which was my original plan.”

Here’s the winter 2013 edition of Jeremy Elkin’s raw tapes. That double-set pole jam spot Aaron skates at the start is insane. The legend Alex Mosley tried to clear the entire double-set off it ♥ ♥ ♥

75 degrees on Saturday, and none of you scored a Missed Connection? So disappointed in everyone.

Interesting time capsule: Scenes from the DNA Distribution (Alien & Habitat) catalog, circa 2005. I think Waste still has a bunch of the Aesthetics catalogs — been meaning to scan them for like…the past five years.

Want another time capsule? TWS uploaded the first-ever issue of 411.

The moral of the story in this sorta bad / sorta borderline still readable Wall Street Journal article about skate pilgrimages to China is: stop snitching.

Free has an interview with Gustav Tonnesen, perennial #QSTOP10 fave.

Attn: All SVA & Pratt sculpture majors. Jenkem has a chill feature about the world’s most high-con D.I.Y. spot.

Hate it or love it, The Bunt’s new one is with Jamie Thomas.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Let’s give it to the end of Celtics-Bucks Q4.

Quote of the Week: “Could I do the fried shrimp…just with some toast?” — Kevin Tierney’s Diner Order (fyi, the waiter refused to serve him fried shrimp and toast.)

Used To Be With Torey At Santos

Official Grammy Afterparty

Sean Dahlberg has a sick new 11-minute clip featuring tons of 917 video outtakes, Max Palmer doing a hardflip, and John Choi footage. (Related.)

R.B. Umali and Ron Deily with the best “guy skating around Lower Manhattan on a weekend” clip in while. Haven’t seen anyone skate that Robert Puleo bank in forever :)

TWS uploaded Charlie Cassidy’s ender part from John Valenti’s new video, NY Archive. The frontside kickflip over the big rail in the Westside Highway Park is pretty wild, and is that the first multi-level Reggaeton Ledges line?

“We now enter a realm where seemingly everything been done, in which all eras exist simultaneously, where nothing and everything is cool and wack all at once everywhere.” Boil the Ocean re: what it takes to impress us in 2018, and Ty Evans.

Volume 8 of Elkin Raw Files. One of the best ones yet.

Josh Stewart talks to the Nine Club this week + Brian Panebianco and Ryan Higgins talk to Philly’s “City Wide” show.

Chris Mulhern mashed up some of his favorite clips from the past few years into a “Second Sighting” montage, which includes a bunch of T.J. footage at the beginning.

A couple new clips of Stevie Williams skating in Barcelona via…this Weed Maps clip.

B.J. Wishard uploaded all the parts from his NJ-based video, Way Cool, to YouTube.

Not New York, not east coast, not even North American! But this Remy Tav “Welcome to WIP” part is really sick. Fully yelled at the screen when he clipped on the final ollie.

A true testament to the abysmal state of skateboard Twitter is the fact that after ~eight years of being on there, the Quartersnacks account’s most popular post is of a scooter kid focusing a skateboard. Maybe they really are taking over!

“Stripper punched out my teeth after I called her a bad mom.” Good. “One of the restaurants I was interviewing for was called, ‘Smile.’”

Sremmlife 3 is going to be a triple album but they haven’t given us a release date. “The only human on earth I’d trade places with is Swae Lee.” — Pryce Holmes.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The guy who reposted this on Twitter probably summed it up best…”You’d have trouble defending this with a shotgun.”

Quote of the Week
Ashamed Gentleman: “I actually don’t know how to powerslide.”
Max Palmer: “I wish you didn’t tell me that.”

Culture ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
