Thank you to everyone who bought something from the webstore. The response was stronger than expected and we’re still catching up on orders. If you don’t see tracking in your e-mail by ~Wednesday, then you can start sending those “where is my stuff” emails. Until then, we’re still getting caught up with the last of them. If you’re a small, there are some items left + a lot of the hat styles are still in stock.
An interview with one of the T.F’s native sons, Yaje Popson via Cafe Creme.
“Young Mitchell why you trapping so hard?” Fresh off the Nik Stain vid, someone created a great remix of my second favorite Wilson brother, Mitch from Philly.
Damn, back in my day, skate video titles had TWO words. Fully Flared, Menik Mati, Yeah Right… ANYWAY, Drama is the new kinda full-length (15 min) from Harry Bergenfield, Evan Pacheco and the youth, filmed mostly in the city but with a decent bit of Jersey footage. Been fun to watch these get better and better. Everyone obviously starts out with their influences and eventually matures into something unique if they keep at it. Shout out to the boy Ingmar.
To each his own, but the fact that people are making dedicated tribute videos to the “Brownsville Banks” A.K.A. the Beef Patty Banks (or wait, should we have been calling them the Space Heater Banks this entire time?) goes to show how sad the quality of [low bust] spots in this city has become. Cool video though.

Chill fall New York montage via Victor Garland and some NC boys.
Kingpin came through and dropped a #listicle of 29 memorable skateboard Vines, many of which we spaced on for our dedicated #RIPVine post. Completely forgot about the dude ollieing into the bank, falling and knocking the kid over.
The LurkNYC squad took a trip up to Montreal.
Jenkem interviewed the original brand manager behind Ghetto Child wheels about relaunching the brand in 2016, and the heyday of Muska selling 10,000 boards a month. It also reminded me of Child of the Ghetto, which then reminded me of this 2012 New York Magazine profile of G. Dep, which is so, so dark.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Have a feeling that Lillard is gonna become the new people’s fav shooting PG this season with everyone hating GSW etc…

I think pretty decent advice on dealing with the next ~48 hours is listening to a bunch of Curtis Mayfield and trying not to think about it. (Except when you vote, you should definitely think when you do that.)
