“I went to a trade school in the 8th grade to try out a few potential careers that might be interesting. I was in a HVAC course and we all had to use the older guys’ work clothes, which was like a lab coat that doctors would wear. Well, when I put mine on, it was super big on me, so everyone started calling me ‘Dr. Z.’ It just kinda stuck. I wish it was a better story but there you go.” Zered Bassett sits down with The Chromeball Incident for a #longform, career-spanning interview.
Josh Stewart is a lunatic and put his body through another Static video. The trailer is live. (He promised it’s the last one.) Excited for that Jordan Trahan part.
Paul Young B.K.A. Hit You Off Management on the mix for the latest Bronze 56k Radio.

Scumco and Tristan Mershon present Striking Distance 2, their latest project featuring Jake Baldini, Dave Abair, Kyle Nicholson, the legend Jerry Mraz, the legend Kevin Taylor, and many of today’s most esteemed crust evangelists.
Will Rosenstock and Venue Skateshop present Ninetyfour, the latest full-ish length video from Bust Crew and the slice in time when the A.V.E. bench was in Richmond, Virginia.
Huge past week for Ty Beall, who had heavy footage across both of the aforementioned projects, in addition to this mini part for Pepper Grip.
Jake Todd’s Philly [and beyond] video, Devil’s Pocket, is now live in full.
Not entirely in the city, but mostly in the city: Been singing the praises of Josh Paynter’s vlog series that started up earlier this year for a minute, but volume four is one of the best yet. Incredible discerning eyes for spots that we pass on day after day. The wallie transfer under the bridge and gap to grind at Borough Hall were standouts, plus the last dude’s mini part is fire.
Where there are re-openings, there are trip edits. RVCA went to New York with Suciu, Spanky, Zach Allen, Donta Hill and Curren Caples. The museum seems to have the heaviest traction of appearances in circa 2k21 trip edits now that the eight set on the west side is decommissioned.
ICYMI: John Dilo went off on a bunch of New York spots in the last minute of his new Almost part.
Pyramid Ledges extension challenge summer 2k19.
Sign + share the petition to keep synthetic turf off the Tompkins flat.
The Stingwater video is on the way. Pretty excited because Daniel has a way of capturing Antonio’s magic unlike anyone else.
Obvs no shade to anyone else out there pointing lenses at Antonio intended! “Vue” by Stephen Spilker is a rad L.A. montage that also has a good bit of clips from 2018’s GRoER of the Year. Shout out to everyone out there creating plain, old fashioned montages. Should probably start working on a QS one right about now…
Gang Corp put out a sick five-minute summer edit. (The one line into the parking garage got me thinking about if anyone would ever do an all-parking garage montage, kinda how there was the all-subway one from Spirit Quest. So many insane spots in those.)
