“I didn’t know I was beast until I varial flipped a trash can.” — Genesis Evans

E.J. started to post bits and pieces of the DANY video over on his Vimeo page. You could still purchase hard copies of the video over at The Dany Store as well. Or if you want to get weird, we also saw it for sale at a barber shop in Japan, so…

Genny’s part is the first to go live, and it’s every bit as beast as sports analysts thought it would be when he was rolling away from the aforementioned varial flip. This video was what ushered in the wave of people skating the bad ledge at Houston Park again (also the inspiration for this post from March), so its chill to see this generation still keeping up with Anthony Correa’s business practices from Mixtape by placing a mid-line can on the pathway.

Should be caught up on all holiday webstore orders today / tomorrow, and end of the years lists, best ofs, etc. will begin to go live shortly ♥ #sorry4thewait

Yaje Popson’s ‘DANY’ Part is Now Live

Before the T.F, New Yorkers learned tricks at these things called “street spots,” and now, everyone learns crooked grind nollie flips between beefing over who stole whose iPhone 4S with a cracked screen and no data plan at L.E.S. Great skateboarders didn’t particularly “come of age” at Tompkins. Throughout its decade as the city’s prime meet-up spot, it was mostly home to adults that had already “peaked” and began working on their party skills, recent ex-pats, and burgeoning rap stars. Yaje is one of the few exceptions: a native T.F. local who is actually, um, talented enough to pull through with a full video part filmed entirely in New York City.

Thrasher just posted Yaje’s DANY part, filmed and edited by Emilio Cuilan throughout the past year. Give it up to holistic knee cures, and a career-long dedication to innovation at Columbus Park via an East Village native and Rich Mahogany alumnus.
