Midnight Club

Bronx O.G. and Papi Brand capo Angel Fonseca has a new part out entitled “No Need For Closure.” Love the night clips, love the deep spot digging, and always an inspiration 🫡

Decent bit of New York footage + an ender in Heitor Da Silva’s new part for Adidas.

Carson Reuther has a great six-minute Philly edit out featuring Brian O’Dwyer, Matt Militano, Kevin Liedtke + more to commemorate the closing of Fairman’s Skateshop, which shut its doors several weeks ago. 47 years has got to be the longest running American skate shop, right? Anyone have another? (Guessing it’s in California, if so?)

Stingwater’s new video, “SELF PAID,” is live. Includes footy from Johnathan Perez, Carlos Mendoza, Connor Kammerer, Daniel Kim and more. Another Dan Groe production.

Sometimes all you need is …a Philly step and a nearby gas station, and it’ll keep you entertained for an entire summer. Paul Young put together an edit of all the Down By Law clips that feature the Greenpoint Philly step behind Zered Park.

“I don’t know what that guy was on that day, but he looked like pure evil.” Free is hosting Jahmal Williams, Steve Brandi and Aaron Herrington’s shared section from Static VI + has a full interview with all of them about working on the Static series and the time they saw satan in an unmarked SUV.

I Can Buy Myself Griptape, Write My Name on the Tail

For Fuck’s Sake: The Tompkins construction start date has been moved …again. October 16th. Going to stop posting these every week from here on out. It starts when it starts. (P.S. Some of the in-better-shape obstacles have been moved into storage.)

“They had a trashcan fire in one of those iconic Love Park bins. It was so cold that people’s bushings were freezing up making turning impossible… They had to grab their board and leave it by this trashcan fire for five minutes, which would buy them five minutes of skating before the bushings froze back up and they had to do it again… It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen, people everywhere.” Palace videographer, Jack Brooks, is the latest subject of the Slam City Skates blog’s “Visuals” series, in which he discusses Bill’s “Pigeon” edit, the Palace Kalis board, filming Lucien’s Palasonic part, and more.

A watershed moment in the Bobshirt franchise: an hour-long interview with Rick Howard and Mike Carroll.

Almost Got Into a Fight With American Pie Guy

In case you haven’t heard: the Tompkins construction that was set to begin in September, will now begin ~mid-November. The colder the weather, the less of a chance the asphalt will cure soft, or something like that? Any QS Readers work for a paving company?

Going Once, Going Twice” is a fun Philly-based video by Fionn McLaughlin that’s light on the Muni and heavy on the crust. (Feel like there was another recent-ish homie video that ended with “Dirty Work” as well? Perfect homie video song.)

Mark Humienik, Nico Marti, Alan Bell, Zak Anders + more in Chase Walker’s Minneapolis trip edit from an Asics wear test.

“Every day is Friday when you’re Tyshawn Jones.” Late on this — and it’s not a skate pod obvs — but Tyshawn was on the Throwing Fits podcast a week-and-a-half ago. (That link opens in Spotify, btw. But it’s on Apple Podcasts, too.)

Footage Is Footage

You can’t jam the pole and then be mad people are skating the polejam ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Spitfire Wheels: Bringing People Together. Mark Gonzalez skates around downtown Manhattan with Max Palmer, Gus Gordon (!), Nick Matthews, Karim Callender + more. (Why does it always seem like everybody else’s downtown session if better than yours?) Really hope somebody got a photo of Karim’s crook at Rector Street. Almost made the screengrab the headline photo.

Price to Pay is a new Texas-based video by Andy Nguyen with a ton of New York footage in it. The whole crew makes a pilgrimage to the Canal Fountain, and there’s a Trung guest trick in there ;)
