…is it? Can it be? Is it …really? It is! It is! It’s John Choi in the new Limosine edit! “I Just Took A Bite Of Dirt” dropped right after the QS office closed for the weekend. After-black Max Palmer hammers are the best types of after-black hammers.
“Fork Your Former Dinner Or U Cant Have Shit” by Phat House is a New Jersey and Philly video that probably has the deepest dive for spots out of anything to come out this year. Double cellar doors between buildings, stacks of cinderblocks and landings into running water — incredible work from everybody involved.
“Teflon” is the latest ten-minute video by Stephán Lewis, filmed throughout pandemic-era New York — when the Blubba bump-to-can became the street-version of the L.E.S. Park apple, the belated Waterside steps became the most popular spot in the city, and subway spots became empty, or at least emptier. This one includes the fisheye of the World Trade Oculus ollie from last fall, which perhaps better illustrates to the outside observer (who might be unaware of the surroundings at play) how much of a heist that trick really was ♥
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…
