Chapstick Season

The obstacle purge at T.F. West rebounded quick!

With Hollywood hobbled by the pandemic, Jawn Gardner came through with the life-affirming motion picture event that we needed as we head towards the holidays ♥

Zooted” is a New York video by Stephán Lewis with appearances from Brandon Scott, Jiro Platt, Yaje Popson and a bunch of other people you’ll recognize from skating around downtown.

The Village Psychic dudes spend the lockdown months creating Village Archive, an early stab at a Wikipedia or an IMDB of skateboard footwear. (Man, have skaters been responsible for designing some awful shoes.) Kinda inspired to think up some ideas similar to this one now…

Alltimers got hacked!

“Summer Trip to New York” season has obviously been affected by COVID travel bans, yet it has not full-on stopped skate travel into the city. It’s a really interesting time to visit New York, and videos from right now will stand out a lot down the line. Can’t tell where these dudes are from, but enjoyed every bit of “Pull Up,” a new nine-minute trip edit from Juan Reyna. (They got the memo that Times Square is fun right now.)

“The one thing that has stuck out in my mind from early on was that clip of you backflipping off the Love Park sign after that contest. What the hell were you thinking?” Josh Stewart interviewed the forever inspirational Jahmal Williams for Germany’s Solo magazine.

Christian Kerr is selling prints from a 2017 visit to Lebanon in order to fundraise for disaster relief in Beirut.

Our family at NJ Skateshop spent a lot of time at the Hebrew Hideout D.I.Y. spot, and they have a new “Freddy & Friends” edit of that time over on Thrasher.

The Perfect 2020 Euro Part Doesn’t Exi… — Weekend Viewing: Patrick Zentgraf’s ‘Kiosq’ Part

By now, the reality that none of us will be spending the money we saved throughout the other three seasons to skate European ledges with our friends has sunk in. So we turn to secondhard means for enjoying the wide-open plazas, which in other years, would take summer priority over any semblance of a savings account.

You may remember Patrick Zentgraf’s Thunder section from this past winter, but his new part put out by Solo feels so much more special — like a friend edited it, rather than the footage being put through whatever impersonal mill churns out truck company commercials.

Life Is Good

Did you know that the middle of the out ledge at Zuccotti is actually a portal into the netherworld?

You’re about to think you’re reading a 2014 Monday Links update: “Buzzcam 01” is a new Johnny Wilson video blog. We LOVE YouTube Johnny. Mostly filmed around the Vans park, with some street clips at the end.

Zach Baker put together a new edit featuring E.T. and E.J. for when she tells you that you’re too old to be listening to YNW Melly.

NENGAJO” is a fun five-minute New Years VX montage via a bunch of dudes from Japan in New York, with some cameos mixed in between ♥
