Our good friend Michael Gigliotti made an eight-minute bro cam clip that features parts from himself, Miles Marquez and Alex “$80 Baseball Cap” Olson. It’ll make you really happy you live near the Tompkins though.
Jason Byoun with an avant garde line of the year contender in video blog #209 from the Beef Patty dudes. Also big congratulations to the homie Max Palmer A.K.A. Loose Trucks Max. He has his name on a skateboard now.
Following in the footsteps of Wes Kremer’s wallie bluntslide, and Jake’s trick from Static 4 (won’t spoil for anyone who hasn’t seen it), some guy wallie crooked grinded the Clipper Ledge. It’s not like tricks down Clipper have been tangibly comprehensible to the average human since Darrell Stanton’s Free Your Mind ender anyway…
Big pop shoves, Lucien Clarke lines and kitchen freestyles in the “Piff Sticks Mixtape” from the Yes Fam crew out in London.
Some thoughts on everyone’s unwavering Gino fandom and his Six Feet Under shirt.
Even if it’s for a bit of a puff piece, it’s cool to watch Quim and Ricky shoot the shit.
Rochester looks like it has some spots.
Muckmouth caught up with Rob Pluhowski, Richard Mulder, Nate Jones, Scott Kane, and some others in the fourth installment of their “Where are they now?” series.
If you missed last month’s issue of The Skateboard Mag (the one with the “cherry” feature), they posted an extended transcript of the Rieder interview online.
LES Park edits are a dime a dozen, but Eli has a QS tee on in this one ;)
The full CT/NY-based Merica video is now online. It’s mad indie.
Spot Updates: 1) The CBS 52 ledge over the six stair is sort of a wrap, though someone will find a way to boardslide it with a lot of wax. 2) There’s a new box at 12th Street, just in time for iced coffee season. 3) There are some temporary gaps all down Lafayette Street that’ll likely get filled in with cement by the end of the week.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Honestly, can’t think of anything that stands out above the rest from the past week, aside from Tony Parker’s entire Game 3 performance. (P.S. We’re Spurs fans here from here on in, because they’re the only team left that can beat Miami.) Still sorta amazed the Thunder blew it yesterday. Also, you should read Grantland’s history of the 2002 western conference finals between the Lakers and Kings. It’s mad sad though. Biebel probably teared up reading it.
Quote of the Week: “Tiesto is my favorite.” — Geo Moya
How long do you guys think that box is gonna be at 12th for?
