Ever since the last run in fall 2013, “Make more stickers” has been on every start-of-the-week “to do” list I’ve made. Something about the act of approving art files is really intimidating. Sorry guys, we never have stickers…skaters love stickers. Been around for nearly ten years and this is the second time we’ve done them :(
You’re never going to fulfill your my lifelong dream of joining the Hot97 street team, so QS might be the next best thing. We have about 100 stamped envelopes with sticker packs ready to go, all you need to do is email email@example.com with your address in the e-mail body. Sorry, this is only open to the continental United States. No Canadian addresses.
That went quick. We are at way past 100 addresses right now. If your email was sent before ~2:30, you should be good. For everyone else: We’ll have spring merch going live in a few weeks, sticker packs will be included with all orders, and yes, that stuff will ship to Canada/Europe.
Open to the first 100 addresses we get. No, you won’t be getting a “shipping confirmation” — these are free stickers are you insane? (Yes, people really asked this last time.) Will put a note on the site once we receive more than 100 emails so you’re not sending your address into the dark empty abyss of Gmail.
P.S. If you see me regularly, don’t e-mail. This is for people who don’t live within thirty blocks of Tompkins.
P.P.S. Antonio got a new part out today :)
P.P.P.S. If anyone has a lead on how we could procure some Hot97 stickers for the office, please share.
The crew behind the Eric Koston Epicly Later’d episodes had some product to throw around and hit us up for ideas. This week’s episode is about Menik Mati (the most “serious” video of its time) and Chomp On This (the least “serious” video of its time.) Chomp was a crucial part of your life if you were in your early-teens in 2002. If you were 14 back then and claim to have never drawn a Pac-Man on your board with a Sharpie, you’re probably a liar.
We don’t normally run contests around here, but this one could be fun: Film the dumbest, silliest, most absurd line as a homage to Chomp, and win a Girl, Indy and Spitfire complete, a bunch of Four Star gear, a pair of Oakleys and a pair of Nike SB Koston 1s (no éS Koston 3s with custom Pac-Man paint marker art were available for this contest, sorry.) Runner up gets a pair of Koston 1s and a set of Spitfires. Do eighty unnecessary manuals, backside 5050 a ledge in a full Kobe Bryant uniform, do the most annoying no-comply trick imaginable, do a misty flip into the Courthouse Drop, do a five-trick line on a row of three-foot-long manny pads. The stupider, the better. Bring the circus tricks out. Preferably no skateparks.
The entries will be judged by ten dudes in a room drinking three thirty packs, so you don’t need to do the “best” trick to win by any means. The more absurd, the better. The best ones will be thrown into a compilation clip at the end of the contest.
Submissions: All entries must be submitted to qsvicecontest [at] gmail [dot] com by the end of the day on Friday August 31st, 2012. You can send private Vimeo links, unlisted YouTube links, file sharing site links to raw files, whatever. Please make all your entries at least 480p quality. Video format does not matter. VX, Hi8, HD, VHS, iPhone, GoPro, etc. are all fine. No, you do not need to live in/near New York. This contest is open to anyone anywhere. If you have anymore questions e-mail qsvicecontest [at] gmail [dot] com and we’ll get back to you. Have fun.
