Pocket set out to capture the endless good vibes that emenate when you’re kicking it with Karim Callender for their “Followed” series. Yeah, they succeeded ❤️
“I don’t want to be the first skateboarder to skate the ramp and the first skateboarder to break the museum.” Alexis Sablone spoke to the New Yorker about being the first person to ever skate inside the Guggenheim for her Converse pro model commercial.
The Lookback Library got ahold of Gino Iannucci to talk about his two magazine covers — both switch flips and both from 2004. (How the hell has Gino only had two covers? Especially coming from the era where there were four or five magazines?!)
“We are sad. People can say we are overreacting and that this spot will likely be liberated, but there is a gross feeling seeing the city prioritize something like this.” Village Psychic made a tribute to their local curb on the occasion of… the city knobbing a curb — appropriately titled, “Sadman Plaza.”
The QS office favorite Rios Crew out of Budapest just dropped a new video, entitled Uccsó. They’re as atmospheric and third-eye-open with the spots as ever, but it’s the filming that truly took on a new dimension in this one.
A wild ender on Pyramid Ledges, Tribeca street crossing lines, and newfound FedEx choreography in Jasper Stieve’s incredible new “Visitors” part for Picture Show. Thought it was gonna be the Dua Lipa version of that song for half a sec 😝
Early this summer, Hulu released a Rick James documentary — a tour de force that I cannot recommend highly enough. In addition to the “trip the fuck out” moment of James being in a band with Neil Young, the film features a number of “reenactments” using 3D computer animation. These reenactments depict some really wild shit, including, yes, a coke-fueled orgy.
You know — what summer 2021 was supposed to have been!
Eggs’ Brian Reid has a new part for Grand Collection out today. Between the front crook and immediate curve-out on the White Hubba currently undergoing its third (fourth?) post-deknob renaissance, the nonchalant no-push lines at Museum of Natural History + Lenox, and a kickflip back noseblunt that most would be ok with retiring on, the guy really continues his string of imprinting tricks in your mind with every video appearance.
Word is that this took two weekends to film, and it’s more eventful than what many could do in twice the runtime. Excited to see what else is headed our way. Imagine three (!) weekends of this! ;) ♥
Guest appearance from Danny Dipalo. Filmed and edited by J.P. Blair With The Hair.
