Now see, this is what the holidays are all about. Three buddies sitting around, chewing gum.

The site has been having intermittent server issues and downtime over the past several days. Everything should be back to normal now.

Past QS Christmas Clips: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005

Frozen in Carbonite composed an interesting venn diagram for Pretty Sweet and Parental Advisory, the two marquee skate videos of the holiday season. Though “current rap, unironically” might belong in the middle, as “2Pac Back” was Pretty Sweet‘s only current rap song, and it was utilized in an appropriate way. Then again, it also has a caucasian Kid Cudi cover, so that might throw everything off…

In the spirit of list season, Boil the Ocean has begun to count down the top ten skate parts of 2012. Joseph Delgado’s 56k part took the tenth slot.

Speaking of which, the director behind “this year’s best-made video” put together a 56k-esque Bill Pierce part for Roger Skateboards.

Rob Harris is releasing a video entitled Dece Vid on January 20th with a full part of the most recent Yaje Popson footage and cameos from a bunch of others. Teaser here.

This new Skate Jawn montage may be the first skate clip with footage at Fulton Mall.

Rob Gonyon becoming irate with entitled New York bicyclists (seriously, that “DON’T YOU GUYS KNOW THIS IS A *BIKE* LANE?!?!”-contingent of society is the worst) and doing chill street lines.

Mark Suciu and friends at Lenox Ledges and other less-interesting destinations in New York. The switch powerslide at the Bronx Courthouse after the back 180 is impressive considering how tight that landing space is. Dude’s good.

Throwback: A 12-year-old Slicky Boy taunting Santacon idiots at Tompkins in 2007.

Yolo.”

New Chewy Canon part on Christmas?

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Gerald Henderson uses an invisible trampoline to dunk on a complacent-looking Dwight Howard. It would have been glorious if the Bobcats won this game.

Quote of the Week:

Can someone please explain this Pheed thing? And will it ever get big enough for Facebook to pay $1 billion for it? What will you guys do then?

Gah Y’all Some Broke Boys

The QS web store is re-stocked with black and white Snackman tees in all sizes.

Boil the Ocean on DGK’s Parental Advisory video “picking up where the Menace video that would never come left off in Trilogy.”

Adidas just won the “Summer Trip to New York” web clip game with their August 2012 venture. It includes Busenitz, Lucas Puig, Jake Donnelly (with the best crusty ledge back smith since Anthony Correa), and Pete Eldridge giving tobacco companies their best advertising in years with an awesome late-night Sixth Avenue line. In an unexpected turn of events, Mark Suciu even figured out a new way to skate the Courthouse. It would be nice to see a full-length video from this roster.

Matt Mooney owns a computer again and he put together a Tompkins / Autumn / 12th & A clip, largely filmed while seated at the comfort of the T.F. bench.

Tompkins Square Park: Circa 1991.

Harry Corrigan, the creator of Film Me and Goin’ Ham’ has a new video due out early 2013. Belief Skate Shop out in Astoria also has a video due in January.

Are televisions as skate spots (see here or here) officially on #trendwatch2013? Now spotted in this Alex Duke Brooklyn cruiser clip.

Zered Bassett and friends escape from New York to skate L.A. Nice “shut the studio down” reference, Joey Brezinski.

Japanese “Summer Trip to New York” clip with a Roctakon cameo.

“Tom Penny, when he loses his mind, he starts talking about Wu-Tang. Billy Rohan, when he loses his mind, he starts talking about Wu-Tang.” ESPN has a article about how skateboarders love Wu-Tang that perhaps unintentionally hints at how many have cocooned themselves away from rap music released since Liquid Swords. Skateboarding/Wu-Tang is an interesting subject that could be explored in greater depth than “skaters like raw shit!” i.e. Wu-Tang was actually once a skate company or Gino (in general.) And for the record, pretty sure a bunch of us yelled at someone for cutting off Dreamchasers at House of Vans last year so they could hear 36 Chambers for the billionth time. (Forever > 36 Chambers. Frat boys ruined 36.)

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Ricky Rubio back!

Quote of the Week: “I’m the Turkish Darren Harper.” — Guy Riza

So what’s better: Parental Advisory or Pretty Sweet? Rodrigo TX might have the best part between the two videos…
