ICYMI: A Flushing grate N.B.D. that’s been speculated for years on end, a Lego piece between the two rails at the Williamsburg Bridge monument, and a wild one at Grant’s Tomb in Frankie Spears’ all-New York outing of X-Games Real Street.

From flatbars in the driveway to bringing the town its first skate shop: Jake Johnson is opening up IQ Skateshop in his hometown of State College, Pennsylvania ♥

Live Every Day Like It’s Chuck’s Birthday

It’s sold out everywhere, but just another nod to how great the Brandon Turner guest board for Carpet Company is. 10/10 to everyone involved.

Thanks to everybody who grabbed something from the webstore last week ♥ Should be caught up on shipping in the next few days. Available at shops worldwide now. If you came looking for XLs after the relaunch and it was coming up sold out, check back now. Restocked a bunch of styles in XL. (Will do 2XL on the next release for everyone who has been asking, yes.)

Last week, the New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to remove and relocate the Roosevelt statue in front of the Museum of Natural History. There are renderings available that propose fully flattening the chains + pedestal section of the plaza skate spot, but there has been no formal decision on the design once the statue is gone — with people saying they should rethink the pedestal space (A.K.A. the #perfectlearningheight ledge that everyone loves) rather than just leveling where it once stood.

“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.)
