If you missed the premiere of Rich Mahogany, they are hosting another one, ON MANHATTAN ISLAND (yes, as in, NOT BROOKLYN), on May 18th at 8PM at Epstien’s on Allen Street and Stanton. Like typical premieres at Epstien’s, expect an overcrowded sidewalk, a bar full of underage kids, and actually only being able to see 25% of the video and 75% of the back of some guy’s beanie standing in front of you. Inside information is saying that DVD copies of the video will be available in two weeks, but you know how that goes.
And as for the worst video ever, which coincidentally was Eightball Paul’s thesis “film” for SVA and a culmination of money well spent on an elaborate 23rd Street art school education, that is also re-premiering at Epstien’s on the same day. And when I say worst video ever, bear in mind Lemony Snickets (known to outsiders as the Altamont mascot) has about fifty percent of the video’s screentime, rendering it borderline unwatchable and a significant risk on anybody’s blood pressure. I would imagine the re-premiere has something to do with the fact that the “filmmaker” of the actual “film” missed his own original premiere since his night before included this and the theft and subsequent breakage of a bunch of glasses from Dallas BBQ. So you should attend solely on the basis of allowing Paul to redeem himself, even if the video itself is the most infuriating thing of all time thanks to the soon-to-be-Lil’-Wayne-after-years-of-drugs-look-a-like depicted in the top right portion of the photograph.
Flyer and additional information here.
If you have been following the two years of coming soon’s that have accompanied any mention of The Green Diamond video, I am sure you probably suspect that this video does not actually exist. It’s just an urban legend, like the third Dr. Dre album or a bust-free Manhattan ledge spot. However, there are several flyers circulating that state otherwise, and are promising a premiere in three weeks.
Features a Torey Goodall part.
There are two separate premieres, one for Yaje and another for the alcoholics. Both involve going to Brooklyn. Both are on Saturday, April 18, 2009. Flyer here.
The Yaje Premiere
8 P.M. @ the Autumn Bowl. 73 West Street, between Milton and Noble Streets in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The Alcoholic Premiere
Midnight @ Enid’s. 560 Manhattan Avenue, in Brooklyn.
*requires neccesary government papers proving eligibility of consuming alcohol
Brengar has promised to review the video when it premieres. But the chances of him gathering necessary financial means and/or the motivation to make it 1000 miles north on I-95 in the next three weeks are rather slim.

New Teaser For the Green Diamond Video
John Roman updated his website with new photos of nice pretty girls.
I’m sure everyone saw this coming for a long time, but you know that skate videos are really beginning to take a new (internet-ized) form when 411 is just about done.

Regarding the Converses that were on here a while back… the overall shoe came out alright if you don’t mind having a bit extraneous weight (relative to an average skate shoe) on your foot, or if your foot isn’t extremely narrow. The thick sole probably accounts for the majority of the heaviness, and is kind of a bulkier take on the smushy Nike E-Cue shoe that they used to produce The toe cap never really rips, instead, the suede strip that holds the laces in tact tends to take most of the tearing, depending on how far in you set up your foot for kickflips. The sole itself lasts pretty long too, but may take some getting used to if you’re accustomed to more typical vulcanized shoes, or something with a thin sole like a Dunk. I’m not sure how they’re going to shape up relative to to the more popular generic shoe companies having their take at skate shoes, but with some minor tweaks they can shape up to be a pretty good shoe for wide-footed people.

Don’t forget that a major work of art is premiering this Friday.

Bosco painted this thing at the contest this past Saturday, which I unfortunately was not able to get Taji to re-cap. I guess I’ll never know who on 5Boro won.

Many years ago, before Switch Mike perfected the artistry of nollie bigflips, he was telling his moms to “Chill wit dat” in music videos for early-1990s B-list rappers.
I have no reason for posting this whatsoever, but this montage from FTC 3 has always been a favorite, and best of all, features the song Danny Weiss was supposed to skate to in my video back in 2004 before he decided he had a better knack for picking out outfits and taking pictures of random people on the street. You know how frontside heelflips typically are ridiculously difficult to do well? The J.B. Gillet one over the jersey barrier in this clip is the best non-Kalis flip trick in skateboarding history.
No more six stair ledge where the rail was cut off at FedEx anymore.
Vintage Danny Supa part from the Treefort video. (Where do you think that name ranks on the worst-skate-company-name-ever list?)
