Threw the remaining bits of our fall 2019 release on sale in the webstore. Truthfully, it’s mostly beanies and smalls, but there are a few loose other sizes left in there. Figured now was a good time to clear this out as everyone adjusts to the slower pace of life while we wait for this shit to calm down — yes, skate shops are affected. We’ll be good though, just gotta ride it out and be smart. It’s not like we have another choice, yaknow? ♥ Everyone be clean, be safe, be nice and be patient. QS content resumes as usual, because you already know that fashion never sleeps :)

Skate videos used to be so cute and innocent.

All the Streets Are Silent: The Convergence of Hip-Hop and Skateboarding (1987-1997) is coming soon. Think about that Slam interview with Eli Gesner from last week, but wider in scope, and in documentary form. (Timely name, too!)

The first remix tribute to Pablo Ramirez that we’ve come across ♥

Congrats again to Antonio Durao on the pro board. Despite the recent growth of #skatetwitter, skateboarders are still way more partial to the ‘gram — so we’ll just leave the thread of Antonio odds ‘n ends that we have been compiling since July on here for the non-tweeters to peruse.

Genny is making edits again! His latest features some bro cam + a bunch of alternate angles from a handful of more proper projects released over the past twelve months. It ends with a sick iPhone slo mo of T.J’s fakie flip over Bond Street, which is basically just a barometer for believing anything done on a skateboard from now on, e.g. “Can you believe so-and-so did that?” “Well, T.J. fakie flipped Bond Street, so yeah.”

A bunch of Virginia dudes who remind me of Vine’s glory days put together an eight-minute New York edit entitled “Bevel.”

Quintessence is a new video from Sam Mccormick that was filmed from 2013 to 2019, and features an overview of every piece of New York crust or diamond-plate that was sought after in each of those years, kinda on a Now That’s What I Call Cellar Doors 2015 vibe. Includes full parts from Joseph Delgado and Neil Herrick at the end. (Jackmauh is a sick last name, btw.)

“Obviously skating is hard as fuck.” Live has an interview with Pete Spooner about Skating Is Easy and his other six full-length skate videos + a web premiere of Grady Moquin and Josh Manoles’ part from his latest project.

Always fun to see footage from a place you know nothing about: our friends from Medellín took the trip up to Panama City and made this fun edit.

Here’s a rad video profile on the guy who runs the Look Back Library, an archive that strives to preserve every skateboard magazine ever released, which was inspired by the Little Free Library project.

Jenkem has a “Hanging Out” thing with F.A. rider, Beatrice Domond.

Seems like Skateboard Story interviewed Naquan about the Gangcorp video last week, too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lurker Lou is having an art show for his “Purple Shoe Lou” project this Saturday, May 4. 269 Humboldt Street. (Grand Street L train…does that thing run on weekends rn?) 7-10 P.M. Flyer here.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: C’mon. We’re sympathetic to the Thunder’s plight in that its oddly reminiscent of the “good” Knicks teams from earlier in the 2010s (moreso now in the Russ-only era…not the whole “drafting three MVPS and only having one left” thing), and we’re obvs massive Russ fans at the QS Sports Desk, but Dame’s shot was one of the most iconic playoff moments in any of our lifetimes. And apparently Portland-based skate filmer, Tristan Brillanceau-Lewis, who put out Portland Public Skating 2 last summer, in addition to a bunch of other videos, shot this close-up angle of Lillard’s game winner.

Quote of the Week: “This drink tastes like melted Spongebob ice cream.” — E.J.

Hearing there was a “b sides” Jay-Z concert at the re-opened Webster Hall the other night made me want to track this part down, so here it is. Zered pretty much has the two best Jay-Z song parts, and both are for “b-sides” (“Lobster & Shrimp” had a video and everything, but that shit is buried in the pile.)

aight bet. — A Hardbody Production

“aight bet.” is a check-in from Hardbody with a few loose ends filmed since the DANY video came out two long summers ago. Filmed around the city, and featuring Joseph Delgado, Chachi, Shawn Powers, Javaris Williams, Yaje Popson, Jason Byoun, Kevin Tierney, Genesis Evans, and Adam Zhu. Filmed and edited by Emilio Cuilan.

Stay tuned for something special soon ♥

In the meantime, Hardbody goods are available on Hardbody.nyc, and at CHCM Shop (2 Bond Street, quite literally across the street from the gap.)

TRUST – The New Bronze Video

bronze 56k trust

Monday Links are getting bumped for a day.

The latest Bronze audio-visual presentation is now on YouTube. Turns out the Bronze office really does use a 56k modem. Need some proper time to properly digest the sensory overload. So many feelings, so much confusion, so much joy, a few tears and even a few laughs. Didn’t Andrew Allen do that first?

Features Josh Wilson skating incredibly fast, Jordan Trahan stringing together many distant skate obstacles in unorthodox fashion, Shawn Powers looking wonderfully kempt and curated in the moonlight, Billy McFeely maintaining an odd life-long allegiance to that horrible high ledge at 20th and C, Rob Gonyon running through the six, Joseph Delgado including mid-2000s pre-Bronze Flipmode staple Pedro Garboza in his part, Chachi logging the first known line in Nike Foamposites, a career-best outing from Kevin Tierney, and Dick Rizzo making you yell drawn-out obscenities at your screen a few times.

Just a lot of emotions, man. Go to the Bronze webstore and buy things to help them pay back their $30K debt to Pig Wheels for production costs.

Ya, def.
