#QSTOP10 — September 18, 2020

We haven’t been doing much QS Sports Desk coverage of this mangled 2020 NBA season, but Bam Adebayo’s block at the end of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals was the basketball equivalent of Lucas Puig’s flick on that switch flip front blunt. (Has there ever been a man who detested upper body garments as much as Lucas?)

This week turned into a massive dive for #deepcuts in what was a lively week on the Thrasher homepage. If you missed the Status video, it’s quite enjoyable. It is also insurmountable evidence towards Youness Amrani’s recent claim that American skate spots actually suck, because 90% of the shit in it is unrecognizable from other European videos, and all of it is spot porn.

Have a good one.

#QSTOP10 — September 11, 2020

A lively week, but Michael Nicholas’ Untitled was the thing that felt a few pinches more *special* than just a piece of #content. Free summed it up pretty well — even the fact that there’s *a website* to commemorate the release of a video rather than a flurry of #linkinbio posts makes it feel like an anomaly in 2020. Every now and then, there’s a video that you just know is the nascency of something great, and this is one of them.

These kids, this videographer, this crew — they made something that breaks through the daily video avalanche and makes you feel something. We need that now, more than ever :)

Have a good weekend.

#QSTOP10 — September 4, 2020

This clocks in as one of the most lively weeks of 2020. It was tough to not resort to posting everyone’s enders from the past week of “high-profile” videos, but tried to avoid the obvious when possible. A good handful of it has been on the #repost circuit, so apologies for not digging a bit deeper — this almost feels like a November slate of skate videos.

Have a good one. We’ll be back on Tuesday, September 8.

P.S. Everyone is trying to sort something nice for the one-year anniversary of Save Tompkins Day on the 7th, so please stay tuned here or on social for details this weekend.
