If you need some motivation to help you power through the week, Khaled has a new Breakfast Club interview. He’s been meditating, swimming, and is considering flying.
This was awesome: Jim Hodgson uploaded a “lost” German Nieves part from 1997. Great watch, especially considering there aren’t a ton of all New York-based full parts from back then. R.I.P. Hoboken Ledges 3 Alex Olson from Bianca Chandon's favorite skater’s part from Life is Goodie is now online. Buy a DVD copy of the video here.
It’s gotta be amazing to live in a place that closes down a legendary skate spot (that’s utilized by absolutely no one else), promises to build a skatepark in exchange, and somehow doesn’t completely fuck it up. That place has something like ~20% unemployment for people under 25 and also feels like a Groundhog’s Day-esque vortex after a while, but hey man, you can sk8.
Greg Hunt broke down how terrible the process of clearing music rights for skate videos is. Yo but you don’t gotta clear that shit for the Gram tho.
Zoo is reissuing Matt Reason’s Keys deck. All the proceeds go to Matt’s family.
Is pontificating on Koston skateboarding’s version of pontificating on Kobe?
Confused because a) why is Vogue covering skate products? and b) how dare they snub Alex Olson from Bianca Chandon?
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Courtside angle of Rose’s Game 3 winner. Glad to see the dude doing what he was doing when he was the youngest MVP in league history. Rooting for him, but that series is probably going to seven games…
