Can we get this stupid election over with? And preferably not elect a psycho? Put on for your country.
This is the best skate-related thing to go online in 2012: “Here’s to Feeling Good All the Time.” John McGuire does a wonderful Kramer homage in tune with the hair, outfits and mannerisms. While a lesser fan would have just looped the theme song, the geniuses behind this clip dug deep for the background music that was used in the scene where Kramer and Newman make their own sausages. Be on the look out for David Puddy’s 8ball jacket and a quick Death Blow teaser. “All signs point to yes!”
The most anticipated avant-Galen film event of the year: “Free Buzz.”
Another Loose Trucks Max sighting in this new teaser for Mama’s Boys, a video that Galen has been patiently waiting for.
Black Dave’s new video for “On Da Map.” Sick Power Rangers pillowcase. Chicken!?!
Should we place 540 tricks on the list for #trendwatch2013?
Another round of Death Video throwaways. Shame about that manual pad on 92nd.
More Spaniards being better at skating ledges and having better-looking flat tricks than any other country’s skater population. Back when ampersand tees had their “moment” in the mid-2000s, did anyone ever make a Jesus & Javier & Lebron shirt?
Two parts from Lawrence Ekin’s Washington DC-based video, Here and There that have a good bit of New York footage: Zach Moore and Michael Bruch.
E.J. was the token minority on a trip to China with a bunch of white guys this past spring and put together an outtakes clip.
Slap is returning to print for a special ad-free edition to commemorate its 20th anniversary. How is everyone supposed to complain about skate-related minutiae on a bunch of stapled-together pieces of paper though?
Spot Updates: 1) The building mounted chairs in the landing space for the frontside for regular three-stair ledge at “the grey ledge spot.” Going to be tough to skate now. 2) The rail is back on the backside for regular side of the FedEx six-stair ledge.

Don’t forget, NJ Skateshop is holding a clothing drive for those in New Jersey whose homes were displaced by Hurricane Sandy. Help if you can.
