Willing to bet that she’s rolling all those beers over to Grove Street.
Ragers, Inc. is a Flip Cam video from the homies out in Vancouver. It has footage of our favorite Canadian skateboarder, Torey Goodall, and undoubtedly the best soundtrack to a skate video in 2011. Euro section gets the best song (at 3:16.) It’d be perfectly fine if a major pro skateboarder recycled this song for a blockbuster skate video part. (Mildly related: We still got that Quartersnacks Tiesto edit on ice for 2011.)
Guy Mariano talks about Mouse. Some of this has been touched upon in the commentary on the Mouse DVD, but he explains why the switch front shove crook down the handrail was relegated to the credits.
Taji interviewed Grandpa about Autumn’s ten-year-long history. Related: An interview with Dave Mims, Autumn’s owner. Here’s to another ten.
To compliment the Billy Lynch part included in last week’s Flipmode 3 anniversary post, here is his part in the Long Island based $20 Off No Tax video, which came out a few months after Flipmode 3 in 2006. Click here for the full video.
This Skate & Annoy headline — “Dipshit Accidentally Kills Pedestrian, Sets Skateboarding Back 50 Years” — is reminiscent of that classic skit from The Chris Rock Show, where he chronicles all the events that have set black people back and ahead. Perhaps this winter, when there is less stuff to update with, Quartersnacks will chronicle all the ways that skateboarders have been set back and ahead throughout history. “AND THEN CAME THE SOURCE AWARDS…”
Someone does a sick front board off the rounded marble ledge at Exchange Place in this New York to San Francisco clip. First song is one of those few that should be off limits for recycling though.
Aaron Herrington (whose name keeps reading as Al Harrington…remember that dude?) skates a lot of quintessential Quartersnacks SoHo spots in his Boneyard part. Heavy alternation between SF and New York spots seems to be big in 2011 (Dela, Westgate, etc.)
Two weeks late, but Slappy Cove is a wrap.
Probably even more late, but the downhill bump-to-bump thing in Maspeth is temporarily blocked off due to construction. Save yourself the trip, since it’s one of those spots you need a car for.
