Street Struck — Daniel Galli’s ‘CULTURA’ Video

If there’s one phenomenon we at QS have spent covering more than any other during our 400 years in the business, it’s Summer Trip To New York™ videos.

If there’s one phenomenon we’ve spent covering more than that, it’s Summer Trip To New York™ videos that are edited to Big L.

What we haven’t done — ever before, somehow, someway — is properly hosted or presented a Summer Trip To New York™ video that’s edited to Big L.

That is, until today. A special day, that’s for sure.

If you’ve watched a Lisbon or Brazil-based video on Free in the past ~five years, there’s a sizable chance that the prolific lensman behind that video is Daniel Galli. This past summer, Daniel and his homie Andre Costa hit New York for a vacation, only to discover that a bunch of their Portuguese-speaking colleagues were already on deck.

The Good Times of Yesterday, Today — Pangea Jeans & John Shanahan’s ‘ROADRAGE’ Video

Yet for all the handwringing that gets done about things changing and spots disappearing, there sure are a lot of remaining markers of the old days for nostalgia exercises. Take for instance “ROADRAGE,” the new edit from John Shanahan’s Pangea Jeans imprint, filmed on the same camera they probably filmed Real’s Non Fiction video on in 1996. In it, you’ll find the Battery Park three-stair that Gino nollie back heeled in The Chocolate Tour (with a Las Nueve Vidas De Paco-looking nollie backside flip floating down it.) The Greenwich Street windowsill ledges where Harold Hunter did the sweaty backside heelflip at! Tricks at the upper portion of Pyramid Ledges! The L.A. Department of Water and Power Building! The past is — at a bare minimum — thriving.
