“The Trail” has — through no shortage of hard-wrung effort, we can be sure — accomplished the impossible.
Lee Madden and Orchard’s roster of mainstays (Sean Evans, Ben Tenner, Myles Underwood and Brian Reid) have made a Boston skate video with no Eggs footage. No skate scene is without a riptide of a spot or two, but short of maybe Pulaski’s hold on D.C. skateboarders, Eggs’ magnetism is unbridled on the east coast.
All jokes aside though, “The Trail” is a follow-up to “EGG,” the all-Eggs video that this roster dropped this time two years ago, effectively purging their stockpile of footage from New England’s most famous skate spot, so that they could go ahead and churn out lines on Boston’s brick-and-granite side streets. The entire video was filmed in Boston proper, without taking a refuge for less traversed terrain out in the city’s suburbs. Filming and edit by VX Lee Madden, with 16mm by Vito Ramirez.
Brianna Delaney and Lee Madden dropped on a new part that also chronicles her transition and journey from the past few years ❤️ Features plenty of stunning lines and some of the best back tails in the biz.
Jawn Gardner uses his gifts to do what nobody else can in an incredible new Earth Day part. The line at CBS is maybe the most third-eye-open choreography that place has ever seen.
What an amazing idea for a feature… “‘Perfect Days’ will interview familiar faces in the Boston and Northeast scene, and pose them with the simple question: what was one of your favorite sessions ever?” The Orchard Skate Shop blog is following the footsteps of the Slam City Skates blog in creating good, old-fashioned web content outside the Insta-sphere. Kevin Coakley is the inaugural edition. (Fwiw, all-time favorite skate day around here is probably Yume Farm with *literally everybody* in fall 2018 ♥)
Last year, MIT scientist Andrew Sutherland helped solve an equation that had vexed the world’s premier mathemeticians for half a century: x³y³z³= k when k=42.
As this MIT news item states, “This sum of three cubes puzzle, first set in 1954 at the University of Cambridge and known as the Diophantine Equation x³y³z³=k, challenged mathematicians to find solutions for numbers 1-100. With smaller numbers, this type of equation is easier to solve: for example, 29 could be written as 3³+ 1³+ 1³, while 32 is unsolvable. All were eventually solved, or proved unsolvable, using various techniques and supercomputers, except for two numbers: 33 and 42.”
A mile or so up the Charles River, the elite ledge scientists of Boston use their own techniques to devise previously unimagined trick algorithms.
Brian Delaney invites you to take a sip (maybe a shot if you’re bold) each time you see a backside tailslide in “Twice Around,” a somewhat new, somewhat recycled, somewhat not Eggs, somewhat mostly Eggs part from him, Alltimers and Lee Madden. A couple highlights are pulled from Lee’s past two projects, but given the speed at which everything moves through a feed these days, who’s really counting, we’re all friends here ;)
