The original intention was to premiere this during the QS ten-year anniversary weekend, this past September 12. Instead, we decided to fine-tune the thing and make it as good as we could. Your first mixtape has to be fire.
Over the past ten years, we have made tons of videos for this website, and besides the pants (yeah, skaters and pants man…), there is no factor more crucial to telling the time and place of each vid than the song playing over it.
DJ Ross One — half-architect behind the Notorious Partyboy Soundtrack (and now author of the brilliant Rap Tees book btw) — presents Head Over Wheels: Ten Years of Quartersnacks Music Supervision. It’s a musical journey through the past ten years of this website, and songs that shaped it. Something to get you hyped for this weekend, and hopefully for many weekends to come :)

IF YOU’RE IN NEW YORK TONIGHT: Stop by Powerhouse Arena, located at 37 Main Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn for a drink, a chance to buy the QS book, and maybe a conversation with a person you kinda-sorta-maybe met at a loud bar one time. We’ll be there from 7 to 9 P.M. F train to York Street…the first stop in Brooklyn.
Torey Goodall, arguably Canada’s second finest athlete after Steve Nash, spent a considerable portion of this past fall in New York. If you could collect lifestyle hammers into one four-minute video part, his month-and-a-half here would be the lifestyle-equivalent of Mariano in Mouse. Unfortunately, the cameras are rarely rolling for those, and they are often left to memory and legend. Instead, we managed to film a quick part for Quiksilver Canada, aided by the many beverages that fuel Torey’s brand of stylish and most-likely-hungover skateboarding. If “The Notorious Partyboy Soundtrack” is the official partyboy mixtape, this is without question, the official partyboy skate part. After all, has anyone else drank a martini in a video part, or filmed a line with a King of Diamonds haircut before? Shout out to the whole NBPS family.
This video is a collaboration on two levels — Quiksilver x Quartersnacks & 2 Beerz x 2 Chainz.
Contributing filmer: Rob Harris.

“I love when Torey comes to town, it’s like a holiday. Everyone gets off work and shit.” — T-Bird
This is pretty much the realest thing on the internet right now. Enough to make anyone want to go wild in the streets even though it’s going to be below freezing tonight. This was crucial to driving from D.C. to Charlotte in record time this past December as well.
