Supreme London has a new video out that feels like a weird commercial you’d see at the end of a non-411 video magazine circa 2000, but in a good way.

In actual early-2000s non-411 video magazine news, Skate.ly uploaded Progression Video Magazine #2. It includes parts from Aaron Suski (shout to Rawkus), Pat Smith, Airto Jackson (who was a bit ahead of his time, especially by east coast standards), and a definitely ahead of his time, NY-heavy section from Dave Mayhew, which has Rodney Torres cameos and an insane ender at the Banks (it was unfortunately forgotten for our rap video skate part post.) In all honesty, if resources were no issue, the one dream article that would be perfect for QS is one of those “oral histories” about The Storm, the most misunderstood skate video of all time.

You know skateboarding is crazy when pro skaters have to release videos addressing their leaked dick pics. Note Europeans’ fervor regarding the suppression of sexuality in America throughout the Hella Clips comments. “Don’t worry, it’s fuckin’ art, dude.”

Rihanna loves Ishod Wair’s socks. She’s perfect. Also, Ishod has a new video interview about his Sabotage 3 part.

Wow, this guy really wants a new board.

To nobody’s surprise, somebody combined a scooter and a pogo stick (you can get money for anything these days.) Can we expect a Lance Mountain Goldfish sequel?

Consumer Goods Updates: 1) Former Aesthetics rider, Jimmy Gorecki, started his own line of high-end sweatpants, called Jimmy Sweatpants. 2) Ripped Laces offers some thoughts on New Balance’s upcoming line of skate shoes.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Ricky Rubio’s double behind-the-back dribble drive. P.S. Some genius made a song about the QS Sports Desk’s favorite player.

Quote of the Week: “This place is Ted Narrow.” — Tyler Tufty regarding the width of a bar that Ted Barrow was working at.

A remix of Mark Suciu’s Sabotage part is going on The Skateboard Mag site tomorrow, so you guys can continue arguing. Hopefully, it’s not edited to any songs off The Blueprint 3.

“I remember when dinner depended on my fishing rod.”

Did Halloween happen yesterday or is it happening today?

Chris Christie is not the Governor of New Jersey. Fred Gall is. Largely because he is the only one willing to go into illicit portions of the state where the economy is sustained by PCP smoke and crack sales. The last spot in this welcome clip of him and Steve Durante for Orchard skate shop (out in Allston, Massachusetts) and Seasons skate shop (up in Albany) is one one of the more terrifying locations to skateboard at in the entire state. The nineties never ended there. Actually, they probably never even began.

Knives and Beer” is Pryce Holmes’ short video depiction of a camping trip that was filled with a lot of knives and many cans of beer.

Abada made this two-minute profile of Alex Duke many years ago. You can check out of some of his design work for Consolidated and other companies over here.

You know them dudes stylin’ in Osiris shoes.” #skateboardrap. (QS has already stated that it is a Nolan Lee-supporting enterprise.)

Someone mentioned this Andy Bautista Logic 6 part in last week’s EST post. And truly, it was a crucial video part to anyone who grew up skating around New Jersey. Even though a lot of it was filmed in Los Angeles, it is done so in the most east coast way imaginable. This is the era that still felt the effects of Osiris’ profoundly damaging Storm project (maybe the 5050 varial heelflip out on Pyramid Ledges was a form of Osiris-isms peeking out from the New-York-est trick ever: the frontside 5050 front shove out), and this dude is filming a crooked grind, kickflip on flat, and frontside 180 nosegrind line out in L.A. and still managing to make it look great. Very few short dudes have great style in skateboarding, but this guy definitely pulls it off. I might still have some poached footage of him doing nosegrind reverts at Hoboken Ledges on a DV tape buried in a shoebox somewhere. Features a German Nieves cameo, and quite literally, one of the most underrated nineties rap songs ever on the soundtrack. As someone who always complains about rap music, Spike Lee managed to have a handful of great rap songs in his movies.

You can see a quick slideshow from Halloween Hellraiser over here if you’re into that sort of thing. I bumped into Billy last night for a second, dressed up like he was in the Nation of Islam, and he goes, “Tyrone Biggums was there.” “What? there’s a kid who looks like Tyrone Biggums?” “No, the dude from Chapelle’s Show.” “Who, Dave Chapelle?” “No, Tyrone Biggums, the character.” I still don’t know what that means.

Oh, and Billy is on Twitter.

Around the time of last Halloween and the proceeding weeks, every individual involved with QS had this song on rotation for at least one-fifth of their day. It’s a shame these dudes suck now and one of them is off making songs about scarves with Kanye West. The song itself has not gotten any less relevant, or pertinent as go-to motivational music for any sort of emotionally taxing task.
