HD video blog #16 from Johnny Wilson and friends.

Los Angeles-based video blog from Andrew (?!?!) Wilson?!?!

Bob Shirt’s ten-minute video interview with Joey Alvarez is earnest and informative. He runs through the history of little-known companies like C.R.E.A.M and Metropolitan, shares some Banks stories, and talks about Keith Harrison — whose twenty-year-old Seaport line predicted an entire sub-sect of L.E.S. park street style.

The Riverside Park resurgence is already in full swing.

New B-sides clip from the Report Potholes / In Crust We Trust squad. #jersey

Someone remixed all of Tiago’s [park] footage from the D.C. tour video, which includes what is more than likely the greatest switch pop shove it ever done in human history.

Here’s a promo for the Bailar video that includes Shredmaster Keith shredding around Soho. Video due out next month. Looks like a good time.

“People in smaller cities with abandoned ball/tennis courts seem like the have the more fun skating than anyone in Los Angeles or New York.” — Roc

On that same note…new one from the Sex Hippies squad in Western Mass.

I’m guessing you probably caught on to the new #streetlife-heavy F.A./Hockey clip? Pretty sure Ben K. is the first one to ever slide that rail off the eight-stair at CBS.

When the recent past isn’t as recent as you think: Bobby Worrest recaptured. Back 3 curb cut + backside 180 switch crook from Right Foot Forward is an all-time great.

Five trick fix from switch and nollie pop king, Brendan Carroll.

Thanksgiving at the Bushwick Blue Park

Menace is back! …in enamel pin form.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: We’re big on assists at the Sports Desk. Sad this guy is spending the foreseeable future in playoff spot-chasing territory.

Quote of the Week: “If English was my first language, I’d be a famous comedian.” — Chuck MVP

^^^Best sports rap song in who knows how long, but that’s a biased opinion from someone who discovered NBA basketball during peak Penny/Shaq Orlando era ;)

Tino Razo — Hurricane at the Bronx bank-to-ledge, via Jonathan Mehring‘s “Making of ‘cherry’” feature that appeared on the Thrasher site, and then got taken down an hour later for mysterious reasons. Mountain Dew lifted a bunch of the photos and reposted them on their site with some shots that don’t even belong there, and no credit back to Mehring. Normally wouldn’t link something like that blatantly slapdashed together, but it’s all Thrasher’s fault in the end.

Gonna stop claiming #surfboard Vines are over. They just keep getting better.

Chris Nieratko interviews Bobby Worrest about his all-Pulaski part. (Contrary to what Nieratko’s intro says, though obviously not speaking from experience on this side or anything…isn’t the story that Pulaski was relatively low-bust back when things like this were getting filmed? Also, what is the DC montage that was edited to Eric B. & Rakim “Relax With Pep?” It’s the DC section from Eastern Exposure 2.)

In honor of the aforementioned all-Pulaski part, Kingpin put together a #listicle of ten great mostly one-spot parts. Lucas Puig’s line in the new Adidas clip makes one wonder when the first all-Republique part is gonna be…(P.S. Adidas, you don’t need to send out four press release e-mails a week. Thx.)

Another quick clip to get you more hyped for Zered’s upcoming Transworld part.

New mini video from the Sex Hippies crew in western Massachusetts and the Albany area. The title is #NSFW but the content is quite #SFW.

“It’s getting harder to come up with new ways to fix something that isn’t broken, but they managed to do it.” Really? Is there even any reason for anything besides Independent, Thunder and Venture to exist?

Lurker Lou x Young Jeezy Faux One One “One Year Later” remix.

The homie Uncle Steve put together a New York Super-8 clip for Krooked with Brad Cromer and Mark Gonzales, a la A Love Supreme but in 2014 though…

A new, moody promo from Grace Skate Co. out in Long Island.

The new Skateboard Mag cover is an instant classic New York photo.

“Can we get a Supreme video review?”
When Dill is talking to Gonz his abs look so sick.”

Gunplay runs an escort service.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Another Steph Curry circus shot. Any Warriors match-up in the first round is going to be must-see TV. Actually, pretty much any western conference match-up in the first round is going to be must-see TV, provided you can deal with watching Houston shoot 1,000 free throws. They should cancel the eastern conference playoffs and make Pacers-Heat first to twelve wins.

R.I.P. to the Hat. R.I.P. to any sight of spring. It’s snowing tomorrow. R.I.P. QS.

How’s Your Bracket?

The new Iron Claw video, Faux One One premieres this coming Sunday, March 31st at St. Vitus (1120 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint) at 9 P.M. 21+. Features a Phil Rodriguez part. Flyer here. Watch the Cyrus Bennett welcome video, his part in Space Heater, the Iron Claw summer montage, or the Iron iPhone montage to get hyped.

After being the go-to beverage of under-21 Tompkins skaters for over a decade, Arizona Iced Tea finally entered the arena of skate merch.

Some new clips from the young guns: New York and L.A. spring break clip via Kasper and a 12th & A clip via Solomon. “Charles banned Slicky from Supreme because he isn’t taking school seriously. Dunions half-length video coming soon.” If you tumble, be sure to follow Dunions.Tumblr.com.

NY Skateboarding scanned some recent coverage of New York skaters in print media. Features the full Zered and Joey Pepper Skateboarder interview, though the type is a bit too small to read.

The Skateboard Mag site has an extended Dickies east coast tour photo feature, showcasing what may be the last coverage of the defunct Harlem bank to green grate ledge. Vincent Alvarez still skates it as a hip though…

Our homie Ben Baptiste launched a site for his company Sex Hippies, which is an assortment of 15-second clips, a la Metrospective.

Spot Updates: 1) The cracks in the Flushing grate ledge have been filled with Bondo, yet again. 2) Yeah it’s Philly news, but apparently the three stair ledge at Love Park is skateable again. The nineties are back! OMG!

Speaking of Love, Live Skateboard Media has a new interview with Mark Suciu that unfortunately does not address crucial issues of #art, #authenticity or the Philadelphia mayoral race.

Apparently, “Free Gucci Mane” shirts are only irrelevant for six month intervals.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: JaVale McGee over Joakim Noah > Lebron over Jason Terry. Due to the events of June 2011, Terry has no reason to feel “embarrassed” about getting dunked on by Lebron.
